Allambie Cottages & House Bright

Bedrooms 4
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Proudly Locally owned and locally operated so we can add those little extras and requests

Allambie Cottages / Allambie House / Bright House all give you a place to relax yet still keep in touch with the outside world 'if you wish' with Free unlimited internet access via Wi-Fi

All our accommodation is equiped with reverse cycle air conditioning to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

Allambie House does have a slow combustion wood fire if required for extra ambiance (wood supplied)

The 3 cottages are designed for the comfort of 2-4 people. The style is open plan so that the bedroom on the mezzanine floor is open to the lounge area.

All linen and eco toiletries are supplied.

Parents please note that the cottages have open wire balustrade to the stairs and Mezzanine floor so care must be taken with young children and crawling babies.

Allambie House is ideal for children and pets (no carpet). It has its own stayz site (Allambie House Bright) and can also be viewed by googling the cottages or house name.


ALLAMBIE COTTAGES - 29 Mountbatten Ave Bright

The 1 bedroom cottages have a base price of $205/night -2 Guests.

The 2 bedroom cottage has a base price of $265/night (1 x king bed, 2 x king single beds)FOR UP TO 4 GUESTS - Do not be misled by accommodation that misprice for 2 guests and charge extra for more than 2 in 2 or 3 bedroom accommodation



Our 3 bedroom Houses Allambie House (1 x king bed, 1 x Queen bed, 2 x single beds plus additional sofa bed) has a base price of $330/night (Again this is the price for up to 6 Guests)We have recently added an ENSUITE in the main bedroom making it 2 bathroom.

Our latest addition is our 3 bedroom Bright House (1 x king bed, 1 x Queen bed, 2sets of bunk beds so can cater to 4 adults and 4 children plus an additional sofa bed) has a base price of $330/night (Again this is the price for up to 6 Guests so if you have an extra 2 guests it is $25/night each extra guest - max 4 with the use of the sofa bed). We have also recently added an ENSUITE in the main bedroom making it 2 bathroom.

ONE NIGHT STAY BOOKING - we have stopped taking these via Stays site due to the condition guests have left the cottages in recently (we are not a hotel where you leave a mess and we clean it up - we charge extra cleaning fees when dishes etc. are either not put away, left in the dishwasher or need rewashing etc.) - Our pricing above is for a minimum 2 night stay. One night stays incur a surcharge and are available mid week (Sunday to Thursday) but not weekends or in School holidays .

The 'Availability Calendar' below refers to all our Cottages/House and so cannot accurately show individual Cottage/House availability. A VERY ACCURATE UP to date Calendar for each individual cottage is on our own Allambie Cottages site and includes other specials and 1 night rates.

PETS - $40 one of charge per pet

For those guests that travel with their pets each cottage has a fully fenced private courtyard. Pets are also allowed inside whilst you are there.

The pet charge is so that you can bring a pet on holiday with you and stay in our accommodation with you - it is not a cleaning charge for us to clean up after your pet. It is your responsibility to remove dog hair and anything left by your pet (sticks, droppings etc.). All must be removed when you leave. We provide a dog pack (mat, sheet and towel - for river swims) and eating bowls. The use of any item intended for human use by/for your dog will incur extra charges.

Please remember under NO circumstances may your pet be left on the COTTAGE premises unattended - Please contact us about the houses as we do allow pets to be left OUTSIDE whilst you are out for short periods (but obviously not all day when you go skiing!!)

If you do not advise us of bringing a pet with you there is a $100/day pet charge


Allambie Cottages can sleep between 1 and 5 guests and the house can sleep between 1 and 8 guests (see separate Stayz site or google - Allambie House Bright).

Allambie Cottages - each has a King sized bed on the mezzanine floor. These beds have an electric blanket plus warm doona's.

Cottage 1 is ideally for 2 guests

Cottage 2 additionally has on the ground floor in the lounge area a leather sofa that converts to an inner spring mattress double bed so can cater to 2 others at additional cost.

Cottage 3 has a second bedroom with 2 king single beds and a single bed. The base price is for up to 4 guests

All linen and eco toiletries are supplied. Extra Linen for the sofa bed/Ottoman is supplied at an additional charge when more than 2 people book.

There are flat screen panel TVs in the lounge area and on the mezzanine level bedroom ( or in the main bedroom at Allambie and Bright House) in case you just want to snuggle up and watch a movie.

Allambie House has the addition of a large 50" 3D TV and BluRay player so that you can watch some of our 3D movie titles (3D glasses provided) or rent your own.

Each has full kitchen facilities with cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher, Coffee machine etc.

Tea and coffee supplies include Australian leaf tea and fresh groung coffee

Each has a private BBQ situated in its exclusive fully fenced courtyard garden at the cottages or on the spacious deck at the houses

All have a laundry with washing machine and clothes drier plus iron/ironing board.


Allambie cottages are located close to the Ovens river for relaxing walks along its banks or enjoying the view watching paragliders launch from the Mystic take off.

Allambie and Bright House are at the start of the town and Allambie House backs onto the Rail Trail with the Ovens river walks just across the road.

There are many wineries that are a pleasant drive away or bicycle ride along the trail for the more energetic.

Mt buffalo, Mt Hotham, Mt Beauty, Harrietville and Wandilogong are just a few of the places that are easily accessible from Bright.

In winter the snow fields are a pleasant drive but please do not forget your chains or hire them in town.


GUEST REVIEWS - up to date reviews can be seen on our own site or the main worldwide Trip site or the worldwide booking site (these days we get so few bookings via stayz the reviews tend to be out of date).

Stayz Bookings - we do not charge you extra if you book via Stayz -even though the cost to us is quite high. To help keep our costs down and prices down to you please consider booking direct on our own site - you may even like the pricing difference!!!

The Cottage was very well presented on our arrival, and the little extras like the beautiful products and fresh eggs for us to enjoy, even our litte Buddy was catered for, he love the treats. We thoroughly enjoyed your stay and will return.

Owner's Response: Hi Terence thank you for your comments and I will pass your comments on to our ex battery farm and now free ranging girls - they get really upset when guests do not thank them for their eggs after all the hard work they have put into making them!! We are also glad that Buddy enjoyed his treats. We look forward to you staying again. Regards Peter and Helene

Good property

  • 4 of 5

The photos on the net were a bit deceiving, we were expecting something a bit bigger. The bathroom was not especially ergonomic and the stairs to the great bedroom are not suitable for an older person (though we did not have any trouble). It was very clean and extremely well kept however a bit too clinical for our liking....lacked a bit of ambience, just did not have a homely vibe.

Owner's Response: Hi Aida we are sorry you did not feel a 'homely vibe' as we have tried to provide all those little extras for your stay which you have not mentioned such as high quality sheets, fluffy coloured cotton towels - all of these are laundered ourselves with no harsh laundry chemicals used allowing them to stay soft. We trust you also enjoyed the fresh milk, fresh ground coffee or leaf tea and free range eggs from our girls - they do appreciate being thanked by guests occasionally! As regards deceiving pictures we thought that we had put plenty on the websites so that you can see that there are stairs leading up to the mezzanine bedroom and what the inside of the cottages look like prior to arrival. We look forward to you returning in the future. Regards Peter and Helene

Whole Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Being able to take our four legged family member was great, however the floor covering was not conducive to the dogs as we could hear him every time he walked around. The house was well supplied, full fridge, coffee maker enough blankets and pillows

Our girls enjoyed sitting out on the deck, in the sun, studying. The rail trail was at the back of the house with very easy access to town and surrounding bike trails

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle thank you for your review and that you all enjoyed your stay at Allambie House. The floor is a laminate flooring and cottages timber floorboards - this we have chosen for hygiene and appearance purposes. Not all our guests are dog owners and therefore wish to maintain a high standard for all to enjoy. he only way to make it quieter for you is to not allow dogs or to put carpet down and we obviously want you to enjoy your holiday with your canine friends and would never use carpet with pets for obvious hygiene reasons! We look forward to you staying again . Reards Peter and Helene

Great stay on a wintery weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A great newly renovated property for a family Mother's Day weekend. The complimentary free range eggs were a hit! Heaps of parking and space. Not far from town centre. Will be even better once the wood fireplace is fitted! Thanks, great service!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Bright House and of course the eggs provided by our ex battery farm chooks that now free range out at Wandiligong. The new Eurofire is now installed and adding more ambiance with wood provided for you in winter naturally. We hope to have a new decking area down by the Queen's Birthday weekend making outside dining or relaxing even better. We also hope to add this property to the Stayz site along with new photos so we do not have to keep redirecting enquirers to our own site to look at the Bright House pictures.

Ok for people who don't want to cook

  • 2 of 5

One bathroom posed a problem for six adults. There were not enough cooking utensils, no sharp knife ( a knife block full of knives and not one sharp). We spent an hour cleaning the barbeque we could use it. The house is on the main street, no garden, wasps a real problem whilst sitting outdoors (apparently a plague).

Beds OK, living room furniture good. There was no front door key. The touches we are accustomed to in a Stayz home were not there. The basic were there and if you are a keen wifi user - great. would not stay again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are sorry that you did not seem to enjoy your stay. Your original enquiry was for 4 guests that ‘need to tuck three motor cycles away each night; is there access to a rear yard or similar’. Following discussions with you we suggested ‘Bright House’ (3 bedroom with 1 bathroom and separate toilet) may suit and that prior to booking you could look at pictures and location on our own website as we did/do not have it advertised on Stayz. We advised that until the landscaping/decking of the front high fenced (1.8m) and gated garden (7m x 12m) was started there was a concreted area (5m x 5m) ideal for motorbike stands. As you were only to be 4 guests and not 6 if you booked you would receive a special price that was not advertised on the understanding that if numbers increased we would be notified so the price could be adjusted. The fully equipped kitchen has 36 different cooking utensils plus pots/pans etc so not sure what else you need to cook with! The knives in the knife block are sharpened regularly (except the serrated ones) and there is a ‘steel’ in the knife block to increase the edge if needed. The barbecue comment we find insulting to the guests that left it clean the week before you arrived - except the pan foil which we changed. Access to the house requires only one key as ALL locks are keyed alike. We are not sure what extras you ‘normally get’ as we supply fresh milk, fresh free range eggs, condiments, oil, linen, towels, hand/body wash, hair conditioner, body lotion, facial tissues etc etc plus of course free WiFi. A simple phone call and we would have come around to sharpen knives, clean the barbecue or show how to open the other doors - but then we would probably have discovered those extra guests not paid for! All reviews including yours are included in our 6 monthly prize draw of a Tandem paraglide from Mystic - we wish you luck.
