Vacation homes in the secluded Cranberry Isles – Maine
The island gets its name from the abundance of wild cranberries that grow there. You’ll need to park your car at Mount Desert Island and hop on the ferry to take you over – that’s how secluded you’ll be.
Vacation homes and cottages are usually directly on the waterfront, and some have their own private beach and dock. You can get around the island either by bike or the free shuttle bus. The rentals are typically large, New England-style homes, and easily accommodate two or more families. The vacation rental prices are reasonable.
It should come as no surprise that restaurants serve up freshly caught fish, lobster, clams, crabs, and scallops. Aside from the local fisherman, who can deliver right to the door of your vacation home, there are three establishments on the island that serve food.
For the best and most varied selection, you'll need to check out Islesford Dock and Restaurant. Here you'll eat right on the dock. Hitty's Cafe and Seawich Cafe both have a smaller selection, but the fresh seafood is definitely worth tasting.
Back to your vacation home – waterfront relaxation
After the long day of sightseeing, it is a great feeling to get back on the ferry and return to your tranquil vacation rental. There you can finish the evening with a late night barbecue on your porch as you watch the fishermen steer their boats back to the docks. This is the best way to finish off your evening on Cranberry Isles.
You can take the ferry to Mount Desert Island and spend the day hiking through the rugged coastal mountains in Acadia National Park. The trails range from simple to strenuous, so the park accommodates all skill levels. Mt. Desert also offers free bus service into town, so you can shop, eat, or head over to the beach after your hike.
