Cranberry Isles House Rental Photos and Description

3 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 6

Some people might consider the perfect escape from city or suburban life would be to spend vacation on a small island off the coast of Maine. If you think enjoying a peaceful, relaxing week with your family in a lovely, quaint summer cottage, a short ferry boat ride away from the bustling attractions of Bar Harbor and Acadia National (but close enough enjoy the restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities) on an outer island, then Kienbusch Cottage is for you. Located on Great Cranberrry Island, a 30 minute ferry boat ride from either Northeast Harbor or Southwest Harbor (on Mount Desert Island), Kienbusch Cottage is a lovely family home on 2.5 acres, just a two minute walk to the shore, and a 5 minute walk to the town dock. Available to guests of the cottage is tennis court access, croquet gear, a few bikes to ride about on the Island, and a friendly neighborhood! And foliage season on the Island is breathtaking too!

The cottage features 3 bedrooms: 2 queen bedrooms and a bedroom with 1 twin bed and a small double. There is one full bathroom (with tub and shower) and a 1/2 bath. There is a living room, dining room and kitchen. Amenities include WIFI, washer/dryer, microwave, lots of “kitchen stuff”, picnic table and charcoal grill. Sorry, no TV, so bring those books and board games!

Great Cranberry Island has ferry access several times a day. There is a general store on the Island for groceries (groceries can also be delivered from Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor). In Southwest Harbor, the owner of Kienbusch Cottage has a private parking spot for guests (Northeast Harbor has parking for $10/night). From both Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor you can catch the local, free Island Explorer Bus, that travels all over Mount Desert Island, including Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park

For your day trips to Mount Desert Island, enjoy shopping, dining, whale watch tours, hiking, kayak tours, biking, lake swimming, sightseeing tours, nature tours and much more!
