“Great house in Acadia National Park”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Tranquility cottage is very nice. Very clean and just like the photos on TripAdvisor. We loved the screened in porch and grill. Lots of birds come to visit when you sit on the deck. A bit of a drive to most Acadia features. Owner was welcoming and responsive. The TV in the living room didn't work, but when husband reconnected it to a different outlet it did. As we had many overcast and foggy days during our stay, we would have enjoyed a large flat screen tv, which seems like an inexpensive investment for the owner. The house at the top of the gravel driveway is a real eyesore, which looks like a hoarder's paradise (not the fault of the tranquility cottage owner, but a terrible initial impression.

“Nice quiet rental close to Acadia National Park”

Nice, off the beaten path place to stay while visiting Acadia National Park. Away from the hustle and bustle of the Park, but close enough to all of the great places to hike and visit. Highly recommended if you like a place close, but not in the heart of the crowd.

Our family had a fabulous time at Tranquility Cottage! It was so cozy and set up perfectly for a stress-free weekend with family. We enjoyed touring around Bar Harbor, Acadia, and the rest of your gorgeous area. Cannot wait to come back up there some day. The only difficulty we encountered was with the lock box. :) Julie was great to work with and very helpful.

“A great place to stay!”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My family stayed here over Labor Day weekend and we loved it. The cottage is clean, comfortable, and spacious. It's close to Southwest Harbor and many of the attractions in the "Quietside" of MDI. We enjoyed being able to cook and eat in the large kitchen or on the outdoor grill. The night sky views are amazing. Would definitely recommend it.

“Love this house!”

Our family spent a week at Tranquility cottage in August. We loved it!! This was our second family vacation to Mt. Desert Island and the house was perfect. Tranquility cottage is the perfect name. The house seems to be on the quiet side of the quiet side. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town (Southwest Harbor) to relax and close enough to drive there in just a few minutes. Everything we needed was available to us in the house with the exception of a cookie sheet, but we bought one and left it there! The kitchen does not have a dishwasher but the view of the trees outside the window over the sink is so peaceful it's not a big deal to stand there and wash.
There were so many extra touches throughout the house but I have to say my favorite was the option to use the dehumidifier in the master bedroom. Even though this house isn't right on the water it is still on an island and it's humid. Emptying the dehumidifier once a day was no big deal and it kept everything comfortably dry in the house.
The kids loved having their own space upstairs and we took advantage of the books, games and puzzles that were available. We also loved walking to the nearby rocky beach.
We will definitely stay here again.
One other word to future renters, stop in at Gott's store. You will drive by it on your way to town and might even decide you don't need to go to town!
The house and surrounding area are lovely, there are nearby neighbors but the view of the houses is blocked by trees so you feel so secluded.
