Hepburn Springs pet friendly accommodation in a lovable cottage.

A beautiful Hepburn Haven for you and your two or four legged friends. An original Hepburn cottage right on the Diggings track, with a gate opening to the Springs trail and 400 metres from the Hepburn baths and Mineral Springs Reserve. Surrounded by pines, with beautiful (doggy friendly) lush leather couches, kitchen overlooking the national park and all the little touches to make your stay stress free. There is no property like it, so close to the main strip yet surrounded by pines and forest. With fully fenced yards, doggies and children are stress free. Well they'll stay in the yard, at least! Spring Creek Cottage is suitable for up to four people (more if there are babies). Couples, singles, dog lovers or non, families, children and infants. The cottage has a queen bed and a king bed custom made and zipper joined from scratch to split into two king singles.

When am I free?

I know dogs

A past successful Airbnb, Spring Creek Cottage exists to improve on the Hepburn Springs pet friendly accommodation experience. Kim (the owner) and Mika (the 1 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. She dreamed of creating a stress free holiday experience for furry friends and their humans. The furniture, configuration and simplicity has been created with dogs and children in mind. Hard wearing leather, cast iron legs, a lack of low hanging knick-knacks, easily kept gardens, durable flooring. We provide doggy beds, homemade liver treats, emergency kibble, frozen drumsticks, doggy towels, doggy blankets, extra leashes and more. With fully professional cleans inbetween stays, you won't even know Fido has been there!

All within 500 metres

The cottage is located high atop the Golden Springs Ave, with the national park outside your kitchen. A 10 minute walk to the main town strip of Hepburn and Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa (500 metres). Exactly the same to the Golden Springs and enter the track from your very own gate.

Beautifully appointed rooms

We've respected the heritage whilst giving you all the mod cons your heart desires, with a stylish (doggy friendly) fusion. Comfortable, accessible yet stylish with the odd quirk. Why repeat the Big City when you're trying to get away from it?
