I booked a stay at Crabapple Cottage for 4 nights and it was all that we could have asked for and more. The check-in/out process was smooth, and the Cottage was very well-equipped. Would definitely recommend to couples or small groups for a getaway to the surrounding alpine resorts.

Superb setting, well appointed, stylish, lovely bed and doona to snuggle down under while breathing in fresh mountain air, excellent star gazing with no light or air pollution, quiet yet walking distance to facilities.

- Gary - 14/04/2019
We recently had 3 wonderful days at Crabapple Cottage. The accommodation was amazing, as were the surrounds. It had everything we needed. The weather had just turned cold, but it was very cosy. The town is just gorgeous, with lots of walks and nice cafes. The meal at the Snowline Hotel was excellent. The property isn't securely fenced, but our elderly dogs were fine. There is plenty of space to run around. Our stay at Crabapple Cottage will remain a holiday favourite.

- Melissa - 07/04/2019
Great couple's accommodation, within walking distance of town. Would definitely book again.

- Gail - 03/04/2019

Great, cozy little home in the heart of Harrietville.

A lovely spacious cottage with all amenities, even a CD player, set in about an acre of land. Lots of bird life even King Parrots visited! It will be a favourite spot for us to return.

Great spot to stay with the dog.

Beautiful cottage and location. Perfect time to visit with the crab apples in full bloom.

- John - 05/11/2018
We had a lovely stay at Crabtree Cottage and would recommend to all our friends. It was so warm and the fire was a real treat. We took our dog who loved the open garden and very happy on the decking when we went out. Thank you so much, we will be back.

- Rebecca - 10/08/2018
The place was nice and warm however we get messaged late night (2206) to be reminded to tidy up the place, take rubbish out, etc and that made us uncomfortable. Also there's a pud nearby the property and we heard teenagers screaming from 11pm till 0200 it wasn't pleasant

- Gwedolyn - 04/08/2018
Lovely, relaxing and clean place to stay with generous wood supplies and great local amenities. Would recommend to anyone wishing to visit the Bright area without hesitation.

- Stuart - 27/07/2018

Crabapple Cottage is a terrific small place to stay for a couple. In Summer it was peaceful, quiet and close to great bush walks at Mt Buffalo as well as the swimming holes along the Ovens River. It is crawling distance to an excellent pub with good food.

- David - 23/01/2018
We’ve stayed 2 years in a row. Delightful cottage, immaculately clean, verandah with mountain view, 5 min walk to river, the pub for a meal, a coffee shop. Perfect place for a relaxing getaway from everything. Great kitchen so really you’d never have to leave

- Melissa - 25/11/2017

A great place to stay. Clean, neat, cosy, warm and great facilities. Next time we are in Harrietville we will definitely look at staying at this place with the view of staying even longer! I will definitely recommend this place to others.

- Jeremy - 06/07/2017
Lovely property and lovely location. Would be better with a later check-out time - 10am is too early for a Sunday in winter. Would also be better if guests weren't sent a text the night before leaving telling them what they need to do to clean and check-out the next day as it interrupts the relaxing nature of the place.

- Elanor - 01/07/2017
Fantastic quiet relaxing weekend

- Fatemeh - 17/05/2017
This property lived up to all our expectations.We were so looking forward to our Harrietville visit and were not disappointed in any way. Thankyou..we'll be back!

- Nancy - 29/03/2017
Very comfortable and well presented cottage. Have stayed here more than once and booked yet again.

- Jan - 17/01/2017
Lovely little cottage with beautiful view. The fireplace was beautiful and we loved how it was a dog friendly place (she actually hogged the fire)! Definitely recommend staying here away from the hustle and bustle.

- Angela - 23/09/2016
The Crabapple Cottage in Harrietville is the perfect property. Clean and comfortable. It has a home-away from-home feeling with incredible views of the surrounding area. Our dog enjoyed the holiday as much as we did. The booking process through Alpine Valley Getaways was easy and seamless. We will be back!

- Gordana - 13/09/2016
Great little cottage - we loved the view, the layout and proximity to the pub

- Sam - 02/08/2016
On arrival we were so pleased with the cleanliness of the property and the quality of the fixtures and fittings. The fire was ready to be lit and everything you might need was to hand. In the morning we were greeted by a gorgeous view of the mountains and couldn't wait to explore our surroundings. The heating was superb too, having to turn the radiators down at one point so that we could enjoy the large open fireplace!

- Stuart - 30/06/2016
Pleasant house. We enjoyed the open fire and the kitchen had everything we required. The yard is not secure... not fenced and on the main road, which wasn't ideal when letting the dog out for the toilet. The front deck was secure but smaller dogs would be able to escape. As we were not allowed to leave the dog in the house unattended we were left with no choice but to take him with us. which was no problem but would have been nice to know. The house was clean and tidy and very comfortable.

- Stephanie - 31/03/2016
The cottage is situated in a gorgeous setting with all amenities at hand.

- Margaret - 29/03/2016

Attending annual music camp. Great access to all activities. very comfortable at the end of long days

- Jan - 16/01/2016
Even on a rainy day, Crabapple Cottage is a nice place to stay...relaxing to watch the rain sweep across the forested mountains through the picture windows, and be snug inside, reading or watching tv.

- Carmel - 05/01/2016
Great property- would come back there anytime

- Wenke - 02/01/2016

We were really happy with the accommodation and especially how fresh and clean it felt when we walked in. Thanks for the comfortable stay and being so fantastic to deal with.

- Carly - 21/08/2015
We loved crabapple cottage. It was a nice size for us with a warm friendly vibe.The position up the hill a bit was lovely for sun and views and meant it was a bit away from the busy main road.
It was a nice easy walk to the great local pub where we had 2 very good meals.

- Andrew - 11/08/2015
Great location and a great space to bring the fur babies.

- Tamara - 19/07/2015

Thank you to the owners and Emma who arranged our booking.

- Suzanne - 23/06/2015
Nice and central, easy to walk everywhere in Harrietville. The deck was great to keep our dog contained when we went out. The cottage was lovely and warm.

Relaxing get away, great accomodation for us and our dog.

- Christine - 06/11/2014
Crabapple Cottage is ideally situated near walking tracks, we didn't have to drive to any. Great for other activities. Lovely and cosy, warm and well appointed, we didn't want for anything. Our dogs say "woof" in agreement. We will surely come back.

- Garry - 21/09/2014
Nice cottage very clean and comfortable, but not really ideal for dogs as its on a main road, it says the verandah is secure to keep the dogs safe, but if you have smaller dogs they can get out through the large gaps. Not really pet friendly.

- Paula - 01/09/2014
We stayed in winter; cottage was toasty when we arrived in the dark, very clean ,comfy and our 2 dogs loved sleeping by the open fire. Centrally situated to Bright; and lovely crisp early morning walks for us @ the dogs.

- Annette - 04/08/2014
Great place for a weekend gateway especially for couples. It was an extremely enjoyable experience.My husband and I had a fantastic time at Crabapple Cottage. Everything was provided for our stay, the house was very clean.
