The space

Welcome to our peaceful Hepburn retreat. We hope you have a wonderful and relaxing time here.

Our cottage has been recently renovated and has all the modern conveniences while retaining a real country charm. Located just 2 minutes walk from the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, our cottage sits on 1 acre of beautiful natural gardens. There is an abundance of visiting wildlfe, including kookaburras, rosellas and a friendly echidna who like to bath in the birdbath.

The cottage is fully air conditioned for those warm summer days and has a Ned Kelly open fireplace to keep you warm and toasty in the rather chilly winter nights. The bedroom also has its own air conditioning unit so you can be assured of a comfortable nights sleep all year round.

Our cottage has an open plan kitchen, dining, living room, and wrap around decks. The dining table is the heart of the house and a great place to enjoy coffee, conversation and a glass or two of wine. The view from the sheltered decks over the gardens is a great place to while away an afternoon.

The lounge has very comfortable leather couches and provides a perfect environment to read, relax, watch a movie or cuddle up by the fire. The space is filled with natural light and a great space for entertaining.

The sleeping arrangements are very flexible. The cottage comfortably sleeps 2 couples, or a small group of friends.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed and a beautiful ensuite bathroom including a claw-foot bath with views out over the valley. The second bedroom also has a queen bed, its own ensuite, and is located in a separate studio with gorgeous bush views.

The kitchen is fully appointed with a dishwasher, oven, microwave and coffee machine.

The cottage also has ample parking to accommodate guests and visitors.

Interaction with guests

The neighbourhood

The cottage is located in a peaceful area and is walking distance to Hepburn Springs where you will find amazing restaurants, cafes, art galleries, pubs and more.

Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa is a 2 minute walk away and a lovely treat. The cottage, while centrally located, feels incredibly private. It really is a magical spot.

Hepburn Springs is only a short 5 min walk away. There are some fantastic places to eat and drink in Hepburn Springs and taxi services are available if the walk home feels too daunting. Some of our local dining (and drinking) establishments also offer courtesy pick ups and drop offs. We are happy to help with restaurant recommendations.

Andrew & David's cottage is located in a quiet and peaceful corner right besides Hepburn Springs Reserve. Beautiful house with a nice fireplace and fully equipped with cooking amenities. During dusk and dawn, the cheek kookaburras, magpies, gallahs, cockatoos & lorikeets will visit. Perfect place to relax for nature / animal lovers! Also appreciated the bottle of wine our hosts gave us :)

Such a peaceful location with the most beautiful outlook! The apartments were so cost and comfortable and the details to assist with our stay was just wonderful! The owners were so fantastic to deal with and so accommodating. We just loved our stay and really didn't want to leave the tranquility and head for home. We cannot wait to spread the word to all our friends. Such an amazing place.

Andrew & David's place is the perfect get away retreat. Spacious living set on a beautiful secluded block - only a stones throw from Hepburn Bathhouse and a short drive to stores, restaurants and cafes. Andrew & David are fantastic hosts. Very easy to communicate with and left us a lovely bottle of wine to enjoy. A super nice treat. Check in and check out process was super easy. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Andrew and David's place is in great location for those wanting to get away from it all but with easy access to amenities. A short drive away from Hepburn Springs but a short walk away from the Mineral Baths. The house was immaculate and we really appreciated all the small touches Andrew and David had thought of to make our stay more comfortable. A well stocked larder and fridge, bottle of wine on arrival and bird feed so we could enjoy feeding the tame magpies and kookaburras.
