The Red House is on Great Cranberry Island. You have to take a boat to get here--a passenger-only ferry or water taxi. In season, the ferry makes 6 trips per day--leaving Northeast Harbor at 7:30AM, 10AM, 12PM, 2PM, 4PM and 6PM. The fare is $8 per person with a 10 trip ticket. I buy back unused trips. There is a new night boat daily leaving Northeast Harbor at 9PM. That fare is $20. We provide a parking space in Northeast Harbor. You leave your car there and take the ferry or water taxi to Great Cranberry Island. We provide transportation on the island for you and your luggage from the dock to the house and back. Also, the free Cranberry Explorer, an 8 passenger golf cart, leaves the dock every 1/2 hour. The Red House is on it's route. The driver will let you off or pick you up when signaled. In the event that it is not running, we will make other arrangements. Acadia National Park Visitor's Center and Bar Harbor are approx. 8 miles from Northeast Harbor. There is a free Island Explorer bus which travels all over Mt. Desert Island, stopping at Northeast Harbor, Bar Harbor and many other locations including the airport in Trenton and Ellsworth.
A large shared deck runs off the utility room, overlooking the ocean view. There is a small "Zen" garden in the space between units on the quiet side of the house. The property extends to the ocean shore across the street. There is a walking path to the shore for our guests. We have 8 bikes for use on the island.
