For over a century, a large extended family vacationed together on Little Cranberry Island, just off the coast of Mount Desert Island.
A new generation reimagines a piece of family history.
On-site of the family compound was a former work shed that had been converted into a sparse, yet beautifully located cottage, fondly reserved for unruly grandchildren to let loose. The latest generation to oversee the grounds saw potential to make the little retreat something modern and much more comfortable. The goal was to renovate the space without losing the original character or designing over family nostalgia.
