Stayed here for partners birthday weekend. Paul and Claudia were very helpful, the surroundings were stunning and the house was beautiful and unique. Everyone we spoke to made us feel welcome and were happy to answer our questions. We went kayaking, fishing and climbed up to the top of Mount Buffalo.. All of these activities were fantastic. A must visit!

TripAdvisor are not authorised to take payment for this accommodation. Was contacted by owner as fees are wrong for more than 2 people. Had to stuff around to get funds released from TripAdvisor to pay for accommodation directly. Either book though their website or call them. Extremely friendly and helpful!

Management response:

Hi Mandy, We are trying to resolve this with TripAdvisor, and in the interim we have turned off the online payment request within TripAdvisor. So future bookings will arrive as enquiries. People will not be requested to enter their Credit Card details until this issue is fully resolved. Glad you otherwise enjoyed your stay!

We've loved out stay here again and feel very spoiled to have spent 9 beautiful nights here. The cabin is in a quiet setting yet close to Porpunkah and lots of fabulous swimming holes on the Ovens River. Claudia and Paul made us feel very welcomed with their warmth and thoughtfulness. The Lodge is so comfortable and it's such a...

About the neighborhood
Bright (including Wandiligong and Porepunkah) are among most beautiful towns, particularly in autumn and spring, on the edge of the Snowy Mountains. Situated 308 km north-east of Melbourne, the township and shire of Bright is nestled in the beautiful Ovens Valley and surrounded by the towering Australian Alps. Nearby are the resorts of Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek. In autumn the russet tones and the colourful blaze, against the backdrop of the pine-clad hills, adds to the appeal of this scenic district. <BR><BR>Mount Buffalo National Park entrance is 5 mins from Tewksbury Lodge. The mountain has sheer cliffs, imposing granite tors, tumbling waterfalls, snow gums and stunning wildflowers. The park features over 90km of walking tracks, panoramic scenery, waterfalls and... more
