Unplug from technology and come to a beautiful hand built cottage perched upon a ledge. It has views of the Acadia Park mountains and the sail boat race course. Through a wooded path you will find a private beach for nature walks and collecting sea glass. There are 6 acres of surrounding property for exploration and another acre that is a wild bird sanctuary.

Included in the rental is a John Deer Gator for tooting around the island as well as a good supply of bikes. The pool provides hours of entertainment for children and the tennis club offers free beginner and intermediate lessons. On a rainy day the house is filled with board games and books. And there is Internet access, if you need to work while the family plays.

Cranberry is a small rustic island ideal for those who love stunning sunsets and delicious seafood. Acadia Park provides many hiking routes and is great for backpackers. If you like to sail, rental boats can be obtained at Northeast Harbor.

The island is also home to a wide range of bird life and native deer. It provides copious scenic views for the photographer or artist (for the professional artist a studio is available). There are numerous art shows (paintings by local talents), movies and concerts provided by the historical society and upon occasion the community center will even sponsor a high tea.

If you want to unwind, get away from the rush of the city and recharge your inner battery, this is the place for you.

The Wadsworth House provides a restful vacation experience. The home is large enough to accommodate a large family or a couple looking for a quiet escape. Cranberry Island provides none of the hype of typical summer vacation destinations. A day might include a walk to the beach to find sea glass, an afternoon lying by the pool, tennis in town or a tour of the island on the Wadsworth House "Gator". The large kitchen is well appointed. The living room provides space enough to entertain the family or relax with a book. If your an artist, the attached studio provides ample space to create your own vacation masterpiece. The view from the studio is spectacular! I recommend The Wadsworth House to anyone looking for a unique Island experience.
