Description from owner


Tranquility Cottage is a spacious, fully equipped, shingle-style home surrounded by quiet evergreen woods on Mt. Desert island's "quiet side." It combines comforts you would expect to find in a country inn with the privacy and freedom of a well-appointed private home. Improvements this year include a new dishwasher and smart tvs. Every effort has been made to provide visitors with the components of a memorable vacation.

Tranquility Cottage's 2,000 square feet of space offer lots of room for family and friends to visit and relax. The first floor features a large year-round sun room with seating and dining areas, four sliding doors to the 80-foot wraparound deck with grill, table, and ample seating. There is a master bedroom with en suite full bath, a large dining room, comfortable living room, and very well stocked kitchen for preparing meals. There is also a laundry room and half bath. Upstairs are two roomy pine-paneled sky-lit bedrooms, a large 'rainy day' room supplied with games, puzzles, and adult and children's books, and a bathroom with shower. Fine bedding, towels, soaps, and laundry/kitchen/bathroom supplies are provided.

Tranquility Cottage is a non-smoking, no pet vacation home.
