Hepburn Springs pet friendly stay in beautiful cottage.

A beautiful Hepburn Haven for you and your two or four legged friends. An original Hepburn cottage right on the Goldfields track, with a gate opening to your forest and 400 metres from the springs and baths. 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. With fully fenced yards, four paws or little feet will stay safe and secure. Spring Creek Cottage is suitable for up to four people (plus babies). Scroll down to read 'Who does it suit?' The longer you can stay, the more relaxed and immersed in the nature you become. It works for us too, so heavy discounts are automatically applied for anything 3 nights and above. There is no other property that caters as well to both you and your furry friends whilst refusing to compromise on luxury.

“Kim’s cottage is an amazing getaway in a perfect location.

Close enough to town to walk for a scrumptious brekkie but also adjoining the Hepburn regional park with walking trails at your doorstep (turn right for a great walk into the Hepburn springs reserve!). Best of both worlds if you’re looking for a forest getaway not too far from town.

Kim and Mika have obviously designed their getaway together and it’s a very thoughtful collaboration! So good to find pet friendly accommodation where the pups are unashamedly a priority.

We’ll definitely be returning in the winter months to take advantage of the fire pit. Being outside and staring at the stars is the best!
Thanks Kim for sharing your amazing cottage.”

You CAN stay somewhere beautiful with your dogs.

I (Kim) and Mika (my 3 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, manageable textiles. Dog provisions are endless (Snooza organic futon beds, homemade liver treats, frozen chicken, 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, charming and luxurious. Spring Creek isn't a dogsitter. We attract people who like to holiday 'with' their dogs (dogsitter recommendation provided). With a Dyson onsite and impeccable cleaning, you'll enjoy (finally!) feeling fully welcome with Fido.

Who does it suit?

Logistically, the cottage caters for a maximum of '4' bed-occupying folk. Infants and smallies very welcome, providing self catered. Holistically, it's made for down to earth nature loving couples, singles, a small family or friend groups - with or without furry friends. You will love being 10 mins walk to town 'yet' also being so secluded. The photo above fills you with joy. It's super quiet and borders a forest on both sides. With this sort of nature, the trees may rustle, it gets dark, kangaroos are all around, there's the occasional rattle to anchor in weather (which you'll get on with sorting out as part of the charm). An odd creak in the 100+ year old floor. From experiences and feedback, being happy with above and loving the nature is the foundation of a beautiful stay. If this doesn't sound like your cup of tea, do a little search for pet friendly agencies in Daylesford town. There are many apartments and cottages in more built up areas and they could be a match!

Self Contained

The cottage is fully self contained accommodation which is majority BYO. However we often hear from guests that it has more provisions than anywhere else! Many things such as coffee, tea, milk, kindling, firestarters and firewood are generous in nature compared to usual self contained places. They are starter provisions for your stay with plenty of options to replenish and add to them around town. You can safely expect all your cooking basics (oils and salts) and accompanying goods for baking and often much, much more.
