The house has everything you could possibly need for a holiday and the beds are very comfortable. There is parking on the ground floor, which is very helpful. Some people have commented about the stairs in the house being narrow, but I didn't think they were at all narrow and had no issue with them whatsoever. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer, so no need to go home to loads of washing. Very pleasant sitting out on the balcony and the BBQ has plenty of gas and the kitchen is very well stocked. Nina lives next door if you need anything, but gives you all the privacy you need. I'd highly recommend a stay here.

We found the Brum Chalet to be all that the listing said it would be. The location was comvenient to the park as well as Bar Harbour. It was very private and quiet. The view from the deck was spectacular. The great room fireplace was delightful to relax by in the evening. The kitchen was spacious and comfortable to work in, but the knives need sharpening! The laundry facilities enabled us to pack less clothing for the week. There were plenty of towels and clean bedding provided. The Brum Chalet was an excellent choice for us and we would recommend it to our friends.
