Additional Information

Fully stocked kitchen and pantry with Tefal cookware and all the mod cons required.

Fully fenced backyard for peace of mind.

Expect nature, birds, travelling echidnas and quiet. The place is 100% yours with no interruptions, professionally provided luxurious new linen/towels.

The cottage is made for down to earth nature loving couples, singles, small family or friend groups - with or without furry friends. You will love being 10 mins walk to town 'yet' also being so secluded.

It's super quiet and borders a forest on both sides. With this sort of nature, the trees may rustle, it gets very dark, kangaroos are all around, there's the occasional rattle to anchor down in weather. If this doesn't sound like your cup of tea, highly recommend a search for booking agencies in Daylesford town. There are many apartments and cottages in more congested areas :)

Welcome wine (and homemade doggy treats if applicable) and a well stocked pantry, majority floating or steel legged furniture (for our small friends of all kinds), dog beds, mutiple bed configuration options and mounted Smart TV with Netflix. The rest is fully self contained with an empty fridge to stock your gorgeous Hepburn finds.

And did we mention the floating workspace, unlimited firewood, fast NBN and reusable pod latissimo?

Tefal cookware, lovingly sourced reclaimed pieces and an enviable coffee (wine?) porch - you'll feel like you're the only ones there.

All bedding is fresh, new, high GSM (and sheets hotel threadcount) with electric blankets.

The whole home is yours and setup purely for boutique accommodation.

There is one bathroom with full bath and large shower, plus a separate toilet (1 toilet in the house).

All house trained (flea controlled) dogs welcome and fully welcome inside, with provisions of homemade liver treats, dog beds, blankets for couch, spare leashes and kibble.

You may end up wanting to stay forever. You have been warned!

Hepburn Springs
I'm a business owner in Melbourne and run my passion project (pet and family friendly Spring Creek Cottage in Hepburn Springs) on the side. I'm a dog lover and nature lover and will do anything and travel anywhere to combine those things! I'm obsessed with top notch customer service and connecting with guests who will love and enjoy my unique space in the way I always intended. My Finnish Lapphund (Mika) is 18 months and has just crossed the threshold into 'good boy'. I get the idiosyncracies and needs of doggies and how to create a space that makes it easy for you to bring your furry friends along. And loving customer service (with a very diverse group of friends) I also understand family needs, couples, singles and friend groups. I love sustainable and eco friendly furniture and created my space with 100% custom/reclaimed wood. Spring Creek Cottage has a reusable latissimo pod machine, a worm compost and hopefully everything your heart desires! I'm a former Ballarat girl and in my working day, I'm passionate about helping regional businesses hire the right people, affordably. I'm also very accustomed to travelling single so have kept that in mind when designing the space and the experience so you're not forgotten. And I hope it's loved by all :)

Hanging Rock

Explore the region and discover why it was made famous by the classic Australian novel and film 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' by Joan Lindsay. The mysterious story of the Valentine's Day disappearance of a group of schoolgirls and their teacher while visiting Hanging Rock in 1901. The legend of the story lingers and creates an eerie atmosphere on the rock.

The small volcano was formed by an upheaval of lava millions of years ago. Discover the massive granite rocks, caves, tunnels and overhanging boulders. Climb to the summit and take in the stunning views of farmland, the forests of Macedon and the Cobaw ranges.

Trentham Falls

Discover the beautiful and lush Trentham Falls, Victoria's highest single-drop waterfall. The falls were formed some five million years ago by molten lava rapidly cooling as it flowed along the old Coliban River valley. Trentham waterfall cascades 32 metres onto the quartz gravel below. Located in the Wombat State Forest, this natural wonder is particularly enchanting in winter when every moss covered rock and fern glistens with water.
