The cottage is fantastic. Spacious, clean and comfortable. It is well equips with dishes, cookware, towels and just about everything else. The yard is small but the porch looks toward the woods and is private and quiet. The owner answered my question completely and in a timely manner. Located on the 'quiet side' of the Island it is still an easy drive to Bat Harbor and Acadia hiking trails and carriage roads. It is walking distance to Thurstons Lobstet Pound and Acadia shuttle stop. I gave it 4 instead of a 5 ( 4.5 wasn't avail) because of the mild nuecience of the neighbor, whose yard is not very attractive ( looks like a junk yard) and whose Kids leave toys and bikes in the road. But the yard is not visible from the house or porch so it's a minor consideration. That being said, I would stay here again and recommend it.
This vacation cottage was absolutely unbelievable!!! The location was quiet and peaceful - but not too far of a drive from all the 'touristy' activities. The cottage itself was absolutely perfect for our active family. There was plenty of room for everyone and the cottage was amazingly well-stocked!! The host, Julie, was absolutely fabulous -- she was beyond helpful with every single detail of the reservation and planning process!!
We had a wonderful time at Tranquility Cottage. The cottage is set back off the road, surrounded by trees, so you feel like you are in your own private hideaway. It was the perfect gathering place for our family reunion, with its large open kitchen/dining/living area.
We found everything we needed to cook for our family, including a nearby grocery. The cottage served as a central meeting place, since we had some family who live in the area. Everything in the cottage was spotless and well appointed. Additionally, we were walking distance to the pier and to a beautiful beach.
The book of things to do, left by Julie and Paul (the owners) was very helpful. The maps and hiking books were great resources. As a result, our family group ascended Cadillac Mountain, sailed on the Margaret Todd, hiked some trails,and relaxed in the Butterfly Garden.
Oh and I can't forget...I had my first Lobster Roll...delicious! I hope to return to Maine and to Tranquility Cottage. I highly recommend it.
House was spacious for our family of 4 adults & 2 children. The play area entertained the children with games,'puzzles & books. Large kitchen, 3 baths, laundry room. Enjoyed being there very much
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.
