If there's one word that best describes Middle Brook Cottages & Chalets...it's "immaculate". From the parking lot without a gravel stone out of place (or even touching the lawn) to the cottage interior, we were suitably impressed with the cleanliness & tidiness of Middle Brook.
Our family of four rented a Middle Brook cottage for four nights in August, thinking that we would use its location as a good central base for exploring both halves of Gros Morne park. In hindsight, we underestimated the size of the park and the amount of time it takes to get from one side of Bonne Bay to the other. We probably would've been better off staying only two nights at Middle Brook and two others around Rocky Harbour.
The village of Glenburnie, where Middle Brook is located, is also a little removed from the more touristed parts of south Bonne Bay. If you want something right by the sea, this isn't the place for you. However, on the flip side, there is a stream that runs right next to Middle Brook. A short five-minute walk upstream leads to a gorgeous set of waterfalls...very beautiful & tranquil first thing in the morning.
The well-built cottage that we stayed in had a lot of room for our family...two bedrooms with a queen bed in each as well as a good-sized living room & kitchen. Having a small convenience store on site came in handy as did the laundromat. However, we weren't thrilled with Middle Brook's policy of us having to pay the entire bill up-front...it definitely projects a "lack-of-trust" image.
For dinner, we drove 10-15 minutes to Woody Point and found what turned out to be one of our favourite restaurants on our vacation...The Old Loft Restaurant. They have such excellent food at reasonable prices, we just had to make a return visit !
All in all, a good stay at Middle Brook...would easily recommend to others.
