Historic Life Saving Station on seven private acres on the southeast point of Little Cranberry Island, also known as Islesford. At the end of a three quarter mile right-of-way, is this incredible and fully modernized house with five bedrooms, two baths. The Station was formerly a rescue building with a four story tower and 360 degree views.
