The Brown House on Great Cranberry Island

Our cozy island home has some of the most magnificent views of Acadia and Mount Desert Island you will find around.  Cranberry is a peaceful island made up of country lanes, fishing harbors and rock-strewn shores.  The welcoming community includes a general store, library with wireless Internet access, and a church.  The local lobstermen will be glad to sell you their day's catch for dinner.

  • Spacious living room with plenty of room to curl up with a good book or to enjoy the breath taking view, also has a wood stove.
  • Dining room seats 8 and shares the same views across the water to Mt. Desert Island as the living room!
