“Charming”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

This B & B (which no longer offers breakfast) was reccommended to us by the US Border Control when we crossed into Maine from Canada. Despite the rain, it was clear that this old barn had been lovingly restored to provide small but very comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms. Fruit juices and other cold drinks are available all day and there is a sitting room with comfy chairs and sofas to read or watch television. In addition there is a huge beautifully decorated room with a large table where you can enjoy or share your personal food. As we stayed in late October it was very cold outside but more than adequately heated within.

The owner was very helpful, pointing us to food and walks the following morning. Unfortunately we had a problem with the toilet in our room and were instantly offered the facilities of another room. Additionally, the owner deducted a third from our bill to compensate for the inconvenience (we didn't realise until we were home and checked our statement) which was quite unnecessary but a lovely gesture.

The morning revealed the beautiful setting of Tranquility Lodge, on the edge of the lake with birds and wildlife. A little gem.

Room Tip: We had a room on the front which was a little noisy due to traffic in the morning.

A well appointed converted barn. The attention to detail is remarkable, down to the rope caulking in the black spruce floor. Leave your shoes in the hall and bring your comfortable sliippers because this place is Clean! This place has 9 rooms and a cottage. Excellent location, comfortable beds and outstanding workmanship thru out . Next to a lake with a moose sighting area nearby. There is a good couple of restaurants in town, this only has coffee and tea, no breakfast any more since most customers would rather have a low rate than food.

The Tranquillity Lodge is a beautifully restored and meticulously maintained inn in what was once a barn.
The premises are spotless, partly due to the "shoes off" policy inside the front door, and mainly due to owner Melody Chase's keen eye for anything that could be slightly out of order or not in pristine condition.
The Lodge sits on a stunning property on Flagstaff Lake, about a half-mile north of Stratton, on the main road.
We stayed in an upstairs room with a king-size bed, countless moose-themed items of decor (author's admission: at home we have nearly 200 moose objets d'art, so we felt right at home), and a private bathroom with a shower stall. We were warned in advance that the room had no air conditioning, but it was not a particularly hot evening for late July, so we were very comfortable. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The Lodge was very quiet when it came time to close our eyes.
There is an attractive central sitting/dining room on the ground floor with a fabulous view of the lakefront and surrounding mountains. The only shortcoming was the lack of breakfast. A wide selection of coffees, teas and hot chocolates is available.
Accordingly to our friendly and warm hostess Melody, the Lodge is packed during ski season, with Sugarloaf less than ten minutes away.
We would go out of our way to stay here again.

My wife and I were in the Carrabassett Valley for he weekend, and decided to roll further up the road to extend our weekend. We found the Tranquality Lodge. And we're we glad we found it. I was amazed at how his 1850s barn was totally transformed into a bed and breakfast. The post and beams were all fantastically left open, and all the old tools from the barn are tastefully hung throughout the lodge. An old horse drawn buggy is actually suspended from the ceiling. The original barn floors are spectacular! And the decor is most definitely country comfortable. And the lake.....ahhh the lake. You walk right out of the lodge, across a well maintained lawn, right down to a set of stairs into the lake. With the mountains all around it is a sight you really have to experiance. And I can not leave out the lodge owner, Melody. She was awesome! Couldn't do enough for us. She sat in the common area with us and told us many interesting stories about the lake. The only negative is that the town is small, and there isn't really anything to do. But, if your looking for a beautiful unique lodge, with a beautiful lake side location, this is most definitely the place for you!

We stayed at the Tranquility in for 3 nights. Our plan was to find a place to stay so we could hike the Bigelow Mountains and kayak in Flagstaff Lake, and the Tranquility Lodge ended up to be the perfect place. The lodge is right on the lake and you have the ability to put your kayak in right at the lodge. This was very convenient. Hiking was just a few miles away. Our host Melody was very nice and accommodating. The main room and the bedrooms were spotless. Coffee and tea were served in the morning. We were able to bring our grill down to the picnic tables near the lake and enjoy our dinner at the lake. The lake and the grounds were beautiful. I would definitely go back.

We spent two nights at Tranquility Lodge, one on each end of a backpacking trip. The Lodge, a restored barn, is full of charm, overlooking Flagstaff Lake. Melody, the proprietor, is very friendly and welcomed us warmly, including the kids. She gave us a tour of the Lodge, which has several common areas for guests, and related its history. She also gave us the low down on eating options in Stratton, which was particularly useful as they are rather limited. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. My husband and I shared one room with a view of the lake, while our teenage children shared another very nice room that had twin beds. The beds are very comfortable (a real treat after backpacking), the Lodge is quiet (TV watching is thankfully relegated to a common room downstairs) and we all slept well. Coffee/tea/hot cocoa are provided in the morning, although it would be nice to have the option for breakfast as well.

We located this inn on the internet at the last minute and were thrilled with what we found - a post and beam barn that had been converted to a lovely eight room inn with frontage on Flagstaff Lake. Our room was spacious(as was the common area), faced the lake, had a great view, and was nicely decorated, and the innkeepers were warm and friendly. The inn was only 10 minutes from Sugarloaf (where we skied in a foot of new snow, yay!). In the summer/fall, it looked like there would be some great canoeing and hiking in the area. We ate one night at the nearby White Wolf Inn and thought the food was very good (try the cream of fiddlehead soup).
