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.
One cottage has the addition of a second bedroom and one has the addition of a large leather sofa that converts to a double bed in the lounge area in case extra family or friends are staying or just for those of us that snore or kick in our sleep.
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.

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. An accurate and hopefully up to date Calendar for each individual cottage is on our own Allambie Cottages Bright 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.

LATEST GUEST COMMENTS
Guests staying August 2014
This delightful mezzanine apartment is flooded with natural light. The contemporary accommodation was immaculate and included polished floor boards, a fully equipped kitchen and welcome treats in time for breakfast the following day; eggs, freshly laid by Bright's finest hens. We travelled from Melbourne with our two small dogs who gratefully accepted welcome treats of their own; blankets and homemade canine snacks.
This is the perfect place to stay, with or without pets since furniture and cushions are strict no-go zones for furry friends, leaving these items clean for guests of the two-legged variety.
While we were grateful for the heating being switched on in advance of our crisp evening arrival, we were equally delighted by the discovery of our private courtyard garden the following morning. With Bright's typically sunny days, it was the perfect place to sit before taking the five minute stroll into town.
Look forward to staying with you again!

A note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your cottages over the Easter break!!!
Everything was of such high quality. The sheets and towels were so fresh!! We are fortunate
to travel regularly and I always hope to find lovely sheets and towels like the ones at Allambie Cottages.
The bathroom products were also special!!
Gus… our old dog enjoyed his Easter biscuits, as we did the lovely Easter chocolate eggs and fresh
eggs you so generously supplied. We couldn’t get over the bright yellow colour of our scrambled eggs!!
Once again, our thanks and appreciation for all the extra treats!!!
Kindly Janine, Russell and Gus (the 4 legged)
PS – We will be back!!!!
