Our stay at Eugenie Cottage has been fabulous!! The decoration is comparable to the theme and a treat to the eyes. The house has all modern comforts though it is a very old house. It has an old world charm about it that reminds us of our childhood like the switch’s and hatch bolts. The heating system is quite good and the fireplace is awesome! And Max was so kind to provide us with the firewood, even at night! Even the books and the board games were interesting and we loved the games room as well. We would definitely love to come back and would recommend it to our friends as well!
Sabanna, Susmita, Somdatta, Joydeep & Swapneel
I am Swapneel and I really liked the Eugenie cottage. We have come all the way from Melbourne. We are staying here for 4 days. My favourite things were the garden and the lamps in the bedroom with the toilet, as they were made out of velvet. I liked the garden because of the Autumn trees. I also liked it because of the rock formation at the entrance of the garden. I also liked the fireplace. Another thing I liked was the tiny window in the kitchen. I have really liked the Eugenie Cottage. It is a very beautiful house. The table tennis was actually the most favourite of mine..

It started with humble expectations. We were weary and downtrodden, brought low by the troubles of travel.

You gave us this and much, much more. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us. It is so clean and comfortable and easy. The cottage was perfect for two couples plus a “Mum”. It was wonderful to be out during the day and to return “home” in the evening to enjoy good company by the fireplace! The beds were so warm and comfortable. Thanks again..

We loved the ambience & décor of the house, such a complete contrast to our modern home in the North Qld tropics. The location in the little township of Bright is A1 – we can walk 2 mins into town, 2 mins to the supermarket, 2 mins to the lake/walking tracks, 2 mins to the lolly shop! We have “tubed” the Ovens River, biked the trails from the 6km to Wandiligong (Australia’s biggest maze) to as far as 87km to Beechworth and it’s famous bakery. We hiked through the spectacular Mt. Buffalo tracks & along the Ovens River canyon tracks to Pebble beach for a swim. The swimming hole in Howitt Park is great for the kids with it’s slide & diving board, & for the more adventurous is the Rotary water slide, we’ve enjoyed a “still” moment or two at the local wineries; the view from the deck at Gapsted Winery is picture perfect. The grandchildren enjoyed the back shed entertainment at Eugenie Cottage – the table tennis & the soccer (great on a wet day). All in all, a wonderful holiday, with all the comforts of home. Tripadvisor rating 5 !!!

We would definitely like to come again!

It is such a lovely place to stay and enjoy the company of friends. I’m not sure how you provide such lovely weather each time we come. As usual the house is so clean and comfortable and provides all we need to enjoy our time here. It was a bonus to be here for the festival and we are amazed at how much effort is put into providing so many activities to be enjoyed. My first entrant into your diary was in 2007 and we have been to Bright before and almost each year since. We never tire of walking into this lovely cottage and settling in. It was a bonus for the ladies to win CRIB this time. Thank you for all you provide.

We’ve appreciated the new bike racks, table tennis set, new outdoor furniture and beauty of the freshly painted exterior. Magnifique !

We found your house to be very comfortable and well equipped, perfect for a fabulous family holiday in Bright. With the separate living areas, there was plenty of room for all of us, allowing the little ones to run and ride around happily and be generally very active. With the great weather, we were able to often make use the barbecue and lovely outdoor eating area. And we were very pleased by its easy access to the playground, river, creek and shops and facilities. We had a great week! Thank you also for the cot.

Jensen & Addison B………… & Xavier W…………..
Just a short note of appreciation for the wonderful week-end spent at your lovely cottage (17/18 November). My Grandchildren (Xavier, Jensen and Addison) noted in your Guest Book accordingly but I thought I would add to what they said from a different perspective. I guess it's the "little things that count". We all enjoyed your Cottage so much. We "cooked in" one night and your very generous and fully stocked cupboards made it all so easy - rolls of kitchen foil, baking paper, cling wrap, paper towels and serviettes, a large jar of tea bags, full bottle of wash-up detergent etc. Seemingly small items but their presence really does make a difference, as these items are invariably scant in quantity or "missing". One of my sons provided our pre-dinner nibbles and in response to his enquiry along the lines of " This lovely cottage has everything but I don't suppose there are any toothpicks?". Guess what..............!? Thank you again.

You have everything that a family needs for a perfect weekend away – warm and cosy rooms, very comfortable beds, spacious living areas, kitchen with EVERYTHING, bath for the kids, high chair, soft towels, and a gorgeous garden. My 3 yr old daughter Grace just loves this place, especially the garden with the ‘fairy lights’ ! She told her Pa tonight that she could hear the fairies whispering in the ‘fairy lights’ tree…. You’ve created a very homely and special place in Bright and we would love to come back and stay again in the future. Thank you for changing our dates too, it has been lovely dealing with you both.

I wanted to let you know that we loved our brief stay here and will look forward to returning one day hopefully sooner rather then later. The cottage is so beautifully decorated and so homely. Your eye for detail is amazing and I really loved the Art Deco theme which you have maintained so well throughout. Thanks again

Another sensational Bright getaway. Eugenie is our favorite place to stay in Summer or Winter. Love the heater in the bathroom! A terrific new addition. Many thanks !!

A lovely time had by all, and a lazy, relaxing time. A great place to celebrate an 80th birthday in a town we have visited over the last 30 or so years. Nice and cosy once we warmed the place up, and everything here for a few days of good food and local wines. Only downside was previous guests failed to clean the bbq, which spoils it for next guest in. Otherwise a beautiful property we have admired for years from our days of camping over the road when our children were young. Many Thanks!

We have had a truly wonderful time in your lovely cottage. Our three generations of family were accommodated very well, and we were extremely comfortable in your abode. The proximity to all of Bright’s wonderful sights was brilliant, especially for Dad. It has made what has been a memorable holiday even more so, and we hope to get back here, all five, in the near future. Many thanks for your hospitality and assistance, Di ! Best wishes..

I told you we would be back! Here we are exactly 1 year later. This place is ideal for us. Grandparents in one section and a family of 5 in the other section – perfect!! You also can not find a better location – right near the shops!! Unlike last year we were able to get out and about and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. The kids had a ball pottering around in the garden all day long, finding critters. We are sad to leave but hopefully will be back again one day. Cheers

Charming well appointed, very welcoming and comfortable. Always enjoy a house like this and would be well worth a return in the future. Thanks for welcoming us all.

Thank you, we have enjoyed this wonderful cosy cottage in Bright and look forward to coming back again. Even though the weather was not the ‘brightess’ there was plenty to keep us very happy here. The 1930’s theme, along with the space to spread out, settle down and enjoy cooking up a storm, read newly purchased books or study by the fire made Eugenie Cottage a perfect base for our family.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, we loved the cosy house and warm fireplace. Enjoyed being close to the town and walked there for dinner. The garden was beautiful and enjoyed having my cup of tea in the lounge and watching the beautiful garden. Bright is such a Bright place and always feel rejuvenated when we come here. Enjoyed all the food trail and will enjoy eating all the goodies we bought to take home to Melb. Will definitely come back. Regards

15 May 2011 ... Mothers Day week
Dear Di & Max & fellow guests... hello. So lovely to be back at 'our' cottage in beautiful Bright. We have as always had the most lovely stay despite our Mummy not being quite herself, just out of Cabrini for kidney stones and still more that require 'blasting'. But what a place to recuperate and lift ones spirits again - As always Marianne, Ireen, Franny, Mell and Susy have walked fabulous 'walks' like there is no tomorrow and just seem fitter and younger every year (except Mel & Ruby who are allowed to look their ages 22 & 12 respectively - Mum is amazing about to be 84 ! I'm not in the greatest shape but have come just on the last day, Sat 14th May '11, having had bad whiplash - the electric blanket in first bedroom on right, single bed has helped heal my sore muscles. Our sister Linda & brother in law Doug visited for dinner on Wed evening, our big roast lamb dinner. Mum 'home' quite a bit in front lounge with wood fire going. Leaving tomorrow, Sunday, .. already looking forward to year 8 in Bright.

Thank you for a lovely stay. A charming house, with lovely Art Deco features. Beautiful gardens for the children to play in and lovely aspect to the autumn trees. Perfect location to shops and river. Only improvement to suggest would be to fix taps that are reversed hot/cold. Will definately come again. Many thanks.
ps: Thank you for kid supplies - stroller, port-a-cot and highchair - wonderful help and very child friendly.

Thank you for making our stay most enjoyable! The weather was pretty bleak which enabled us to enjoy the comforts of this home & snuggling up by the fire. We, as an extended family have been coming up to Bright for the past 5 years & have stayed in over 10 places combined but honestly nothing compares to this. We could not fault it! We were very impressed by the cleanliness too. Our little children had a ball pottering around the front garden to find some critters! I am sure they will remember this place too. Thanks again, hope to be back next year. Kind regards

To Max & Di, What a lovely holiday haven you have created !! We have had a lovely holiday. The cottage is so homely and comfortable and everything is provided. The beds were cosy and towels fluffy and we were very warm. The front garden is so beautiful (just perfect to have a cuppa in !) We love the fact that we can just walk to everything and not spend the holiday in the car. Thank you again for all your caring re our stay dates and the best part is we know we will be back ... See you again soon.
