Our retail shop and grounds closed for the season October 9, 2022. Many people ask if they can wander the grounds even when we are closed. I'm afraid the answer is no, so please plan your visit for 2023. We look forward to seeing you mid-May. . . . In the meantime online ordering is available year-round and if you are local, curbside. Order by phone or online.
Nervous Nellie's is located on Deer Isle, Maine. It is about 3.5 hours from Portland, a little more than an hour from Bar Harbor, and about 30 min from Blue Hill.
From Route 1 north of Bucksport, take Route 15 through Blue Hill and Sedgwick, then across the suspension bridge to Deer Isle. You are crossing Eggemoggin Reach, a passage named by native Americans who paddled it in canoes years ago. Watch for schooners, yachts and fishing boats today. Follow Route 15 for approx 6-7 miles to a service station on the right. (If you have a dog with you, stop for gas -- Rover will get a milk bone.) Then, left onto the Sunshine Road. Nervous Nellie's is on the left about 3 miles down the road (bear right at the fork after a mile or so). Just follow the signs....it's a very scenic drive.
If this is a first visit, plan on at least an hour for several acres of sculptures, exhibits and buildings, plus a particularly interesting shop. (We close promptly at 5 pm). And have a Plan B if the parking area looks full.
