The Cranberry Hill Inn is a lovely BnB on a quiet side street in Southwest Harbor. My wife and I have stayed there many times, basking in Patty's hospitality and enjoying her pleasant breakfasts (as well as her dinners during the short period of time she also ran an Italian Restaurant in town).
Unfortunately, the inn has received a cosmetic make-over, turning the once lovely rooms into quasi-suites. The rooms that used to rent in the neighborhood of $150/night with a two-night minimum are now rented by the week for $1000+. Maximizing profit, it seems, has taken precedent to cultivating long-term clients.
This is unfortunate, because the Cranberry Hill Inn was a very special place enjoyed by a great number of people who sought it out to avoid Bar Harbor. Now, it appears to be taking the lead in the "Bar Harbor-ization" of Southwest Harbor.
There are several lovely alternatives to Cranberry Hill Inn that remain in its former price range. I suggest that you explore these other options, as they now provide a much more economical (though not cheap) alternative for real-life couples and families.
