~ ABOUT OUR ECO-RETREAT ~
Tranquility Trails is a Eco retreat center located on a private game preserve. It was established on 9-16-2013 in loving memory of my father, Frank Bileti, & friends, Patrick Macumber & Matthew Rutkowski. All having been instrumental in providing me the means to make this endeavor come to fruition.
The cabins, tent sites & trails are very private and secluded. Each site has its own gated private entrance. We currently offer 2 cabins, a cottage, 3 tent sites (1 is fully furnished) for our guests to relax and become one with nature.

They range in difficulty. The southern section of the property ascends abruptly from 2050'-2250'. The northern range is less abrupt. Tranquility Trails is nestled within 138 acres of the foothills of the Appalachian mountains in the Southern tier of Western New York.

It has been my passion & a genuine labor of love to keep this environment as pristine as possible. My ultimate goal is to be able to provide a place for man to be nurtured, where nature & wildlife will thrive, while always striving to keep the environment as pristine & serene as possible. Truly a unique balance. Due to this balance, occupancy is limited.

Ideal activities would include: hiking, bird watching, wildlife observation, meditation, stargazing etc. No hunting, fishing or foraging allowed. Ample parking & private picnic areas are provided.
