Bay Tree Cottage - a couple's retreat

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage


About the property

Unwind, enjoy the views and feel at home in this 6-star energy rated cottage with views that extend to the north down the beautiful Wandiligong Valley.

Large open plan living area, perfect for couples, with main bedroom and ensuite. A deck to the west provides a lovely space for enjoying the views and birds as well as the perfect spot to BBQ a meal. All you need for a wonderful weekend or week away to enjoy some quiet time or take trips into Bright and surrounds, a short 9kms away.

With plenty of insulation and double glazed glass Bay Tree Cottage is comfortable in winter with a warming wood heater and during summer the large ceiling fans will cool you down, both inside and on the deck.

The cottage can accommodate a third person if requested and the single bed is made-up for the third person booking automatically. Otherwise, the single bed can be made-up upon special request.

During the gold rush, Wandiligong was once much larger than Bright and apparently had 9 pubs, butcher, bakers, stores and many other shops and lodgings. Today it is a sleepy village just a short bike ride or car trip away from Bright, however the Wandi Pub has good food as well as great options in Bright, such as Tani Eat Drink if you're after something special.

Special note: We do not allow pets. To get to Bay Tree Cottage there is a short section (approx. 500m) of dirt road.

A lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Bay Tree Cottage, and everything was as good as the first trip two years before. This time we were joined by one of our parents, who was visiting from overseas. With a second single bed in the living room, we were all suitably accommodated and Margaret was once again very kind and hospitable, and saw that we had everything we needed. Once again we loved our trip to Bright and surrounds, and loved staying in this lovely peaceful cottage in Wandiligong.

Thanks again,

Andrew and family

charming property in charming town!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here a couple of nights for the Alpine Classic weekend. The little cabin was comfortable and clean. No mod cons (wifi, aircon) but great for getting away from it all. Beautiful property with fruit trees and owner was very friendly. Wandi pub is a true gem

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Bay Tree Cottage. It was perfect! Along with the surrounding views. Margaret was lovely, and patient during our stay. The cottage stayed cool during the hot summer nights, and was well equipped with all the amenities you’d need for an enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for the perfect little getaway from the busy city! Thanks Margaret!

Fantastic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Nestled away from any main road is delightful cottage. Quiet and in touch with our feathered friends. The cottage is spacious, clean, modern with the hint of old fixtures. We wanted to experience tranquility away from wifi , phones and all the distractions - thats what we got. Everything we required was included not to mention the friendly chat we had with Margaret. Looking forward to our next Stay.

A true retreat

Bay Tree Cottage is a true retreat. An idyllic location nestled among the trees with just the sound of birdsong to be heard. Margaret was very welcoming and helpful. We have already booked our next stay!

Tranquil setting in historic Wandiligong

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Bay Tree Cottage! The cottage is light-filled, neat, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed - the hairdryer was especially a nice surprise, since I had forgotten mine - also liked the eco-friendly features like double-glazed windows, rainwater and compost bin. It was really lovely sitting out on the deck enjoying the beautiful, tranquil setting with stunning views and delightful birdsong. Bay Tree was a perfect base for our activities in Bright and surrounds and a perfect destination for couples. Thank you to Margaret for such a warm welcome and wonderful hospitality. Highly recommended.
