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.

Fully equipped home:

  • Living room with TV and wood stove
  • dining room with spectacular views across the water to Mt. Desert Island
  • Fully equipped kitchen, laundry room with washer/dryer and full bathroom with shower
  • Master bedroom with a queen bed, and a room with 3 twin beds. Large dorm room with double bed. Sleeps: 7

Enjoy the view and memorable sunsets from our back deck.  From the deck, a path leads to an ocean tidal pool with our own private beach -- our family's favorite place.

The island is a twenty-minute ferry ride from picturesque Northeast Harbor.  A water taxi is also available.  Visit island website for more information and ferry schedule:
