Very clean, well equipped cottage that met all of our needs. This home is removed from the busyness of Bar Harbor but close enough to enjoy all that Acadia has to offer. Just a short walk from Thurstons-------a great place to get lobster and know that it is fresh. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Beautiful Home and it was fully stocked. Wish there was a fire pit, but everything else was top-notch!
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.
