Bear Island (Maine)

Bear Island is an island located in Maine. It is one of the five islands of the Town of Cranberry Isles, Maine. The island is located just off of Northeast Harbor, Maine and south of Mount Desert Island.

Bear Island Light sits on the west end of the island. It was built in 1889 and manned until 1981. The lighthouse is now a private aid to navigation and a private residence. The rest of the island has belonged to the Dunbar family since 1884.
