Tranquility is a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the Gate and Carriage house for a family vacation - couldn't have been a more perfect set-up! We were 5 couples - so having enough bedrooms with full-size or larger beds was great! Both houses are wonderfully furnished - especially loved the fresh flowers from the gardens. The Gate house was the main gathering place for our family- there was plenty of room for everyone and had a marvelous kitchen! The grounds are impeccable - we enjoyed all the amenities on the property - the fire pit, bocce ball, volleyball, and fishing from the dock! This was our first trip to Maine - very close to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. The free island shuttle even dropped us off right at the end of the street that the property is on! Couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to hold our annual family summer vacation - Look for our "Warden Maine Event" rock in the entry basket!

Sally did a wonderful job coordinating the logistics and was super helpful and welcoming! I'd highly recommend considering Tranquility for your next stay in Bar Harbor

Tranquility: more than expected; aptly namex

  • 5 of 5

Arriving through the woods to spacious lawn and a charming cottage was visual tonic to our extended family. It just looked comfortable at first sight. My wife was hooked by the fresh flowers in every room; my daughter by the generous bedroom apart from her teenagers; and the boys by the acres and beaches to explore.

The property's descriptions were accurate...perhaps even "Mainer" understated. The décor a tasteful blend of old stone and reclaimed wood, and contemporary fixtures. Ample space for the inevitable rainy hours inside.

The grounds were clearly cared for by family, and featured meandering paths along garden and natural plantings.

Four miles to Arcadia Park; and additional 5+ miles into Bar Harbor itself proved close enough to be easily accessible without sacrificing the richly deserved Tranquility moniker.

We highly recommend this delightful place in this charming area! And a tip of the hat to Sally Black who proved to be as gracious as she was professional in her realtor relationship!

Retreat in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home, along with the Gate House and the 2-bedroom apartment over the garage, served as the location for our week-long family reunion. The buildings and grounds are a retreat in and of themselves. All 24 of us agree that our only regret is that we were so active during our stay that we didn't spend nearly enough time just enjoying this property. Next time we would plan to spend more evenings at 'home' playing lawn games and enjoying the amazing gardens and grounds. The location of this property is perfect - close to the Hull's Cove entrance to the park for endless hiking, biking and climbing; close to town for the inevitable trips for ice cream; and close to access to the south end of the island without going through town. The owners and managers of this property were friendly and accommodating and treated us like extended family coming for a visit. This is one of the best vacations we've ever had and we would return here in a heartbeat.
