Dogs, trails and springs

A beautiful Hepburn haven

For you and your 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. 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 on a large lot, your mind will be at ease with your doggy or children. Spring Creek Cottage is suitable for up to four people (five if there's a baby). Couples, singles, dog lovers or non, families, children and infants. We provide a cot, a queen bed and a king bed that can be split to two king singles!

Nature bathing

With it's corner block position, Spring Creek will make you feel like you're the only ones in Hepburn. Take the bottles pack down to the Golden Springs pump and fetch some fresh water. The park is fully (leashed) dog friendly so your little mates can go exploring with you. Its about 64km long! We've done all the research on the dog friendly places and will send you a fully bespoke pamphlet of relevant attractions to help you during your stay. And we've designed four versions - dogs, no dogs, singles and families.

We know dogs.

A past successful Airbnb, Spring Creek Cottage exists to improve on the dog 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, iron cast 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!

500 metres to everywhere

The cottage is located high atop the end of Golden Springs road, with the national park out the window to your right. A 7 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

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?

Not dog rules. Dogs rule.

This isn't the sort of place where your couch loving Fido is restricted to the floor and can't sleep with you. If he or she likes a bit of a scratch, no problem. We provide doggy blankets for draping on couches, black towels for muddy paws and professionally provided linen.

About us

Kim (and Mika) live in Melbourne and maintain the property, one of us more than the other. We leave the professional cleaning and urgent issues to the capable locals. We pop up to maintain the doggy supplies and make improvements. As a new owner, Kim would love to hear all your suggestions!

Our stay was amazing. Just perfect. Already planning our next trip back!
