A personal wealth of local information is provided by Bruce himself. The place was a little tricky to find so do call Bruce or ask the taxi/driver to do so, or else request an airport transfer for...

I was looking for somewhere peaceful and pleasant to stay near Lijiang with my two children - away from the bright lights and karaoke of Lijiang which filled me with horror! I came across Bruce Chalet and its good Trip Advisor reviews and booked the king room with the mountain view and a double next door. The place is amazing...

We were in the newer rooms which were lovely with new bathrooms, It was really clean and has a lovely courtyard area. Bruce speaks English and can arrange any sightseeing or trips into the Gorge, etc. So you don't really have to plan anything ahead if you are staying here. The morning breakfast was excellent as well. Easy walk to...

We were so glad we stayed in Shuhe rather than Lijiang. Bruce's place isn't too far but a bit of a walk to the old town, though the walk is quiet and pretty. The place itself looks beautiful with lots of flowers, plants and a small pond. The building has kept all the traditional elegance. The room was very comfortable...
