We have just returned from 5 days at Abenaki in Bright. We found the property to be of a high standard and would recommend it to anybody wanting two bedroom accommodation. It is very centrally situated and you can literally leave the car at your accommodation. We had a small dog with us and she thoroughly enjoyed the backyard.

Property was much nicer than the photos Very comfortable beds and the couch was fantastic! The tv was awesome too, love that I could watch my Netflix. The place was lovely warm, the floor heating was toasty. The back yard was perfect for my dog and very well fenced. Very close to shops, I didn’t use my car for days. Definitely recommend Abenaki as a great getaway!

- Julie - 30/08/2019
We stayed at Abenaki for 8 days, and give Abenaki a 10/10; it felt very homely, the bed, furniture and other furniture was very comfortable, it was clean, the underfloor heating was a godsend as it was very cold during the night, and is in a great position for walking to the centre of Bright for shoppinmg/resturants etc, and also for walks along the river. It is also a proper dog FRIENDLY place, because IF we had wanted to leave her for a couple of hours, we could have done so in that sunroom with access to the garden feeling sure that our dog would be quite happy.

- Dina - 22/05/2019

The property was perfect, clean, tidy, and walking distance to shops. It was an ideal size for our two dogs. Their Medium size dogs - they had the back yard and slept in the sunroom at night.

- Nicole - 03/06/2018
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. It was perfect also for our little dog. It was like walking into our own home. Warm and inviting. We even cooked a roast dinner. It was wonderful to leave the car safely in the garage and walk everywhere as the unit was just outside the main part of town. The late check out was most appreciated. Margaret and Rob

- Chris - 14/03/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location at the top of town and so close to the shops was wonderful. The property felt roomy and spacious. No direct sunlight in the main living area made that seem a little dark but that was "a small price to pay." Otherwise all was excellent for my sister and I and my small dog. We would certainly stay again and recommend without hesitation.

Location, location, location....hop, skip & a jump from main street shopping complex.... Ideal base for day trips.... Great to have 2 bathrooms in a 2 bedroom unit and access to the garage from inside was brilliant for unpacking & packing... The sunroom was lovely for mum & I to do our quilting The entire unit..layout, beds were very comfortable, decorating was tastefully done...we actually agreed that we could easily live there... To top it all off, listening to the running creek at the back....feel the serenity!!! Wouldn't hesitate recommending to others or returning ourselves. Thankyou,Susie, Peter & June

Nicely presented with all facilities needed. Property was dog friendly and very safe for pets with an excellent back garden.

- Mal - 15/04/2016
This property instantly felt like the most comfortable home away from home for both us and our pups. It was the most functional and comfortable accommodation which made the first time we'd travelled with our pups an absolute pleasure end-to-end, no dysfunctionality or awkward improvising, everything we needed at hand. The way this property is set up reflected that its managers really understand making the canine and human holiday experience a shared joy. Our pups were as relaxed and happy as we were which really made our experience of Bright an absolute gem. Really can't give enough praise for this property.

- Michelle - 11/04/2016
