About

The Cranberry Hill Inn is an intimate and peaceful location in the center of the quiet village of Southwest Harbor on Mt Desert Island. Each guest room faces the garden and the harbor and includes a private bath and private entrance. Guests are served a full gourmet breakfast each morning in the dining room and on the sunporch as they watch the lobster boats leave for the day and encouraged to return at the end of the day for tea in front of the fireplace in the welcoming living room. The inn is minutes from Acadia National Park and the Cranberry Islands ferry, and a short walk into the center of town where visitors can enjoy wonderful restaurants and interesting galleries and shops.

Excellent Find

4.8 on August 23, 2012

This is a very comfortable and well located Inn with reasonable rates, away from the congestion of Bar Harbor but with easy access to Acadia. The Innkeeper, Patti, was very helpful with directions and recommendations for activities, and accommodated my dietary restrictions. Easy walking distance to town and restaurants. We would definitely return.


Warm and Friendly Innkeeper matches the Inn

We had a wonderful visit for four nights in June. The Inn was beautiful. Harbor views, lovely gardens, a short walk into historic Southwest Harbor, on the quiet side of the island. Patti prepared amazing breakfasts and was very knowledgeable about the area. The Inn is warm and inviting as was our Host. I can't wait to go back.


Most Enjoyable Escape

5 on April 26, 2012

We wanted a quick getaway in early May 2011, and found this unexpected pleasure. The room was delightful, nicely decorated, clean, airy, spacious, private with a nice jacuzzi and harbor view. The proprietors were so friendly and fun and the food was delicious, inventive and abundant. They even made coffee specially for us early (5:30 am) risers and left it in an insulated thermos for us on the porch. We loved Cranberry Hill so much, we hope to return this May.


Excellent quality and value!

Cranberry Hill Inn excells in all categories, especially considering the very reasonable rates. Although my husband and I managed to pick a week of atypically cloudy, drizzly weather, our room at the Inn seemed sunny due to the pleasant decor and plenty of natural light including a skylight in the generously sized bathroom. The very comfortable bed and quiet setting made sleeping easy, even for a couple from a rural home. The breakfasts always included fresh fruit and a sweet treat preceeding the gourmet creation of the day. Patti is a wonderfully gifted cook and both Patti and Jerry made you feel as though they were old, dear friends you were visiting. I know reviewers are warned against hyperbole, but I honestly can't think of a thing that would have made our stay any more pleasant, short of changing the weather!
