About the neighbourhood
Tranquility Cottage is on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island, in the quaint fishing village of Bernard. Peacefully secluded, the house is ideally located to enjoy a Maine vacation. Pick wild blueberries along the deck. Stroll to the beach, fishing dock, or lobster pound. Acadia's breathtaking scenery, hiking trails, canoeing and kayaking, and the Bass Harbor Lighthouse are just a few minutes away, as are the charming restaurants and shops of Southwest Harbor. Don't want to drive? The free Island Explorer Bus passes by the foot of the drive to take you around the island and park.
