unfrequented

(adjective) Devoid of creatures.

Synonyms: lonely, solitary

Usage: The reference library is quite unfrequented as a rule, and the silence there is so intense that I often find myself holding my breath in a subconscious effort to remain noiseless.

Think of the word itself: unfrequented - and its opposite: frequented. Frequent means at short intervals, or often.
The opposite is at long intervals or seldom. So it does not mean "Devoid of creatures", a curious expression at best.
If unfrequented did me no one was ever in the library, then it would have been closed. Lovers would choose an
unfrequented spot (one not often visited, not unvisited) for a bit of quiet intimacy.
