Hepburn Cottage, a quiet acre in Hepburn.

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Hepburn cottage is a stylishly fitted out miners cottage nestled into over an acre of quiet bushland. Only a short 400mtr walk from the Hepburn Spa complex and the shops, cafes and restaurants of Hepburn springs, while only 3 Klm's from Daylesford township.

With a large open fireplace , contemporary art and photography, a collection of books and a mixture of comfortable modern and industrial furnishings.

This intimate, tasteful miners cottage in an excellent place to retreat from the city, wind down and enjoy the sounds of the bush in a practical and welcoming space. Set on over an acre of bushland with access to bush tracks for both walking and biking.

The surrounds are great for families and pets with lots of nooks and crannies to explore.

The kitchen is simple yet functional - plenty of room to cook for the family or friends or simply prepare a morning coffee on the stove top prior to walking to the Blue Bean cafe for breakfast, or have a BBQ and on the deck and enjoy the potbelly stove.

The house has a spa bath , great natural light , is private and secluded yet walking distance to both the spa house and cafes.

No wifi is available but 3G and 4G are accessible. TV reception is a bit scratchy however there is a DVD player and stereo with a phone dock available. The Cottage offers a quiet place to relax, listen to the open fire and step away from the city for a while.

The road up to the Cottage is gravel and the turn off to the drive way is well marked. Our big old 2 wheel drive has no problem negotiating it all year round. The Cottage does have steps up and down to the front door with a hand rail.

The new Stayz/Homeaway website doesn't allow us to advertise this, but the Rental cap for up to 7 nights is $850 with $105 added per night after that. I can sort that through an enquiry.

The Cottage has recently been purchased by a family who has rented the property for family weekends over the last 15 years and , while continuing to enjoy and refurbish the cottage , are keen for others to come and enjoy the cottage and the Hepburn Springs surrounds.

Why Ben Ward chose Musk

The Cottage is only 400mtrs to the Hepburn Spa house and a short walk to the Main Street, however situated in a small valley you would think you are miles from anywhere.

What makes this cottage unique

Plenty of room for children and pets to explore, well off the main road and close to many walking tracks.

Amazing! Loved every minute

The cottage was absolutely perfect just what we needed to get away from the world. Open fire place, relaxing and very clean. Will definitely be going back

Cosy country cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cosy country cottage. There was heaps of wood for the fireplace, plus heaters and electric blankets for the chilly winter nights. The bush surrounds were great for our child and dogs to explore. The location was very close to some nice bush walks and mineral springs.

Gorgeous cottage - everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage - tucked away in Hepburn but close to lots of great walks, and good brekkie at the local cafe. The owners have really thought of everything - it was extremely comfortable, non-cluttered, tastefully decorated. Highly recommended!

Character property with a few flaws !

  • 3 of 5

While the property is as represented and quite good value for money we were concerned by the steep entry to the drive way & when two car were using it getting out was not easy for the driver having to reverse. Having an open fire was lovely but it didn’t emit a lot of heat & we did endure some smokiness. The owners personal items left in the house is not creating the atmosphere one expects & a more professional level of cleaning is required.
