You CAN stay somewhere beautiful with your dogs.

I (Kim) and Mika (my sub 2 year old Finnish Lapphund) came across a lot of places that were pet friendly for 'small dogs', 'non energetic dogs' - all the things Mika just isn't. Sometimes there were ten pages of dog rules but no fences. Or dogs slept outside. Or you had to commit under oath that they were well behaved. Or there was a huge non refundable pet fee. Or the available accommodation was frankly a bit of a dive. I dreamed of getting away to luxurious heritage spaces that catered to us both and were stress free to be in them. Voila! Spring Creek Cottage Hepburn emerged to raise the bar for the Hepburn Springs pet friendly accommodation experience. The furniture, configuration and simplicity has been created with dogs (or small people) in mind. Hard wearing leather, cast iron legs, a lack of low hanging knick-knacks, easily kept gardens, minimal textiles. Dog provisions are endless (doggy beds, homemade liver treats, emergency kibble, frozen drumsticks, doggy towels, doggy blankets, extra leashes and more). And your furry friends can even sleep with you on request. The difference is, it's still super stylish, perfectly located, rustic and luxurious. With fully professional cleans inbetween stays, you won't even know Fido has been there!

All within 500 metres

  • Truly pet friendly

    We had such a nice stay at Kim's cottage. She's done an amazing job. It was comfortable, cozy, relaxing, along with modern touches. You can see the care taken into going above and beyond with hospitality. The yard was fenced really well for my big dog and the walking trails straight out the back were great for all of us.

  • Hosting with love

    Kim has left no stones unturned when making your stay a peaceful and relaxing home away from home experience. Kim's communication leading up to stay and finding everything you needed when you arrive at the cottage is outstanding. The fur babies were so excited to see two beds and blankets set up in front of the fireplace when we arrived.

  • Spotlessly clean

    Spring Creek Cottage really is as good as it looks on the website, in fact, it’s better in real life! This is a perfect quiet haven to escape life for a while. Kim has made the house so warm and inviting, it was hard to leave!! It is spotlessly clean, toasty warm and has the most comfortable beds!

  • Nature abounds

    Kim has created an amazing experience at her cottage with great attention to detail and going above and beyond to make her guests comfortable. The cottage is located in a perfect spot close to nature walks and natural springs. The cottage is pet friendly making it a fantastic getaway for the whole family.

  • Fabulous location

    It's in a fabulous location. You have the bush and walking trails at your backdoor, the Hepburn spa literally down the road and fantastic restaurants and cafes around the bend. The cottage is gorgeous, suits the surrounds and has a beautiful backyard. Kim has thought of everything. It's truly a relaxing place to stay, we loved it.

  • Beautiful bushland

    It was an absolute dream! We came here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. The house is surrounded by beautiful bushland and feels very private and secure. We had lots of native birds and even a few kangaroos drop in for a visit! The interiors are super stylish with lots of nice local touches. It's a short walk to the spa, cafes and restaurants in Hepburn.
