Peace and Tranquility, yet close to everything: Brum Chalet is located in the small town of Otter Creek, so when you come back from your busy day of hiking, walking, shopping or just lounging on the rocks at the ocean, you can feel the privacy and mellowness that our home offers. There are hikes from our driveway that are not listed in the guide books.
Wide Range of Activites: Mount Desert Island offers a wide variety of things to do, for adults, teens, and young children. Rent bicycles and ride the carriage roads. No cars allowed. Go on a whale watch or sunset sail. Hike the Beehive (strenuous) or Gorham Mountain (good for kids). There are too many hikes to name them all. All that information is on our counter in the kitchen. There are several A-One golf courses, one of course being Kebo Valley (3miles away). Take a kayak adventure with an outfitter, have dinner out at some great local restaurants. There are museums that tell the history of the island and its people and the Acadia National Park offers walks, bird watching, and movies at Blackwoods campground one mile away.

We built this house from 1992-1997. It was a labor of love. We thought we should share this home with other folks who want to enjoy Acadia Natl Park
This property is close to everything in Acadia. Also it gives a nice privacy feeling after a hard day hiking or sightseeing or anything else you enjoy doing here on Mount Desert Island.
