Very lively cottage. Beautiful place to bring children with bush walks and natural wildlife. Very warm and cosy, we were very comfortable and enjoyed our time. Definitely great value for money.

A lovely cottage in Hepburn Springs. Plenty of space indoors and outdoors. Couldn't get the oven to work but Tim was very prompt in replying to my queries. Top tip: head to the Hepburn Springs Spa just down the road for their better value Early Bird tickets (they are ok if you show up in your pyjamas!)

The house is disgustingly dirty. Wifi never worked though-out our entire stay there. Host was unhelpful and mood spolier. I guess once he has your total payment, the rest is all up to you. I will not recommend anyone to stay here and definitely wont be back at this property. A total disappointment with bad host completes the package.

Sometimes you just get them (guests) dont you . A stark contrast to the great reviews this cottage has enjoyed thus far. ..and then a guest who cant understand how equipment works ( although all instructions are available). Blames the cottage for a Telstra outage. Does not read the cottage description where a clear instruction tells you how to approach and enter the cottage . Well we'll do better...

Absolutlely beautiful home in a natural setting and an easy walk to the local shops and mineral springs. The house is well appointed and we had everything we needed for cooking at the cottage and relaxing by the fire. Thanks to Tim for supplying lots of firewood! The location is great and we particularly enjoyed watching the sun set behind the gum trees from the back deck. Tim was very friendly and accommodating when I needed to communicate with him via the app and on mobile. I would gladly recommend Eden Cottage.

Fabulous little place! Stayed for a girls weekend and was perfect spot to relax and unwind. Neat, clean, centrally located property. Beautiful private gardens. Host Tim was helpful and prompt with response. Would loved to have stayed longer than 2 days!

We are Tim & Mary who own this cottage... We looked for long for something like this and after many months of looking at various country towns we landed in Daylesford/Hepburn area there was this instant connection . We just loved the town , the outdoors and the great food & the great Spa country capital of Australia. The cottage was so special so connected with nature and the outdoors yet so close to everything . We love it and I hope whoever stays in it loves it too and enjoys the wildlife and lifestyle.
