Our family of four had a wonderful stay with Patti & Jerry at Cranberry Hill Inn! From the start, we knew it would be lovely, as they truly think of everything. Speaking with Patti over the phone prior to arrival was a huge help as well. She ensured we had all the comforts of home for our 20-month-old. A pack & play was set up in our room upon arrival, a high chair with a place-setting was out every morning for breakfast and puzzles and toys were made available to us. Our 7-year-old was able to explore the flora in the garden, including helping to pick raspberries for breakfast! We stayed 5 days and had a wonderful variety for breakfast every day. From pancakes to omelets, fruits, veggies…everything was fresh and DELICIOUS! Both hosts were a wealth of information about the island, where to go for dinner, what the best times are to visit attractions, etc. Having a full refrigerator and kitchenette was great so we could store food during our stay and have snacks when needed. There is also a table inside and outside for lunch or snack, or even dinner. While there is not a cooking range, there is a microwave and a grill outside, plus full serving utensils and plates, etc. The room itself was very clean and the atmosphere quite relaxing (including extra seating, towels and pillows). The location of the inn is perfect because we were a short drive to Acadia and parts of the National Park, but nestled in a quieter part of the island. On the same token, great restaurants, shops and cafes are just down the street (easily walkable, even for our toddler). Also a short walk through a beautiful mini forest (or main road, if you prefer) was a gravel beach and seawall where the kids could explore the tide pools. We only wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks to Patti & Jerry for a truly memorable experience.
