The Cranberry Islands sit off the southern shore of Mount Desert Island absorbing the seas and wind from the open waters of the Gulf of Maine. They form an effective shield for the entrance to Somes Sound as it ventures into the heart of Mount Desert Island, as well as for the two harbors that sit to either side of its mouth, Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor. This group of islands includes Baker Island, an Acadia National Park holding; the privately owned enclaves of Bear Island and Sutton Island; and both Great and Little Cranberry Islands, with their year-round population.
