About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, ideal for families

Tranquility Cottage is a spacious, shingle-style home surrounded by quiet evergreen woods.

Every effort has been made to provide visitors with the components of a memorable vacation.

The cottage's first floor features a large, comfortable sun room with seating and dining areas and four sliding doors to the 80-foot wrap-around deck. There is a master bedroom with en suite bath, a well-stocked kitchen, and spacious living and dining rooms..There is also a laundry room and half bath. Upstairs are two pine-paneled sky-lit bedrooms, 'rainy day' reading room, and bath with shower.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a family of three who love the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island. We first started vacationing here when our son was one year old in 1994. The area has always been the perfect retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Bernard, Tremont, ME, USA:
Every time we visited MDI the time seemed too short, and we wanted to create a real home away from home. That is what Tranquility Cottage is to us, and we have been told by many guests that it feels like home to them, too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tranquility Cottage balances peace and quiet with easy access to everything. The beach, dock, and lobster pound are within walking distance, while restaurants, shops, and the national park are just a short drive away.
