Tour of Nellieville in Deer Isle

Nervous Nellie's Jams and Jellies is a self-directed experience of art, jams & chutneys produced on site, local lore, American history, nature and play set on several idyllic acres on an indisputably idyllic island.  Open daily May - October from 9-5 and the rest of the year by chance (and the chances are good).

Tour of Nellieville in Deer Isle

From June to October, sculptor, Peter Beerits gives ten periodic 1-hour tours of Nellieville:  a collection of buildings, installations, characters and creatures made (mostly) out of found objects. A Western town, juke joint, general store, church and clock tower share an eclectic campus with a jam factory (in a cottage. . .), shop, small tea room and several acres of orchard, woods and meadow.

In addition to developing Nellieville, Beerits makes and sells several dozen sculptures each year, ranging in size from pint-sized to monumental. His thoughtful tours are unscripted, informal and very popular.

Tour dates this season are 6/04/17, 6/18/17, 7/02/17, 7/16/17, 7/30/17, 8/13/17, 8/27/17, 9/03/17, 9/17/17, 10/01/17. No reservations needed.
