Little Cranberry Island, Maine

Howdee all,

The second Island we toured on our Cranberry Island trip

Little Cranberry Island

Isleford, Maine

Acadia National Park_145

Islesford is a picturesque harbor town on Little Cranberry Island just southeast of Mount Desert Island, Maine, providing spectacular views of Acadia National Park. Access is provided by a local mailboat or tour boats from Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Several interesting shops, galleries and artisans reside here. The Islesford Historical Museum (operated by the National Park Service) shows ship models, tools, and photographs that reveal island life during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Admission to the museum is free. (Islesford Photos) via
