The Tree Shack is your quirky home away from home on the main road of Hepburn, a stroll away from cafes, restaurants and shops and just a short drive to Daylesford. Surrounded by bush and spas, the Spa town will invigorate you and leave you relaxed and carefree.
The Tree Shack is a quirky mid-century home on the main street, just a few steps from the local cafes, restaurants and spas, including the Hepburn Bathhouse. Stay in and play board games from our library, watch a spot of Netflix, rest beside the enclosed pot belly fireplace or in the reading nook by the gas heater. You might like to try one of the many stunning bushwalks, and afterwards have a bath in our full-size tub.
On a warm night, head out to one of the outdoor areas, including the fantastic balcony overlooking Doctor’s Gully where you’ll see flocks of black and white cockatoos. Listen out for the kookaburras
We are pet friendly. YAY We bring our cats and dogs here and have a microchip door so you can decide who gets to leave the house our cats are indoors only. We do ask that you respect the house, and that you allow your pets to rule the roost, but please keep it clean and make sure muddy feet are cleaned before coming inside. Tom cats can be a little troubling because they might spray. If you think your kitty might do this, please consider leaving them with a friend or a good cattery while you visit the Tree Shack. Otherwise, enjoy the wonderful walks with your pets. It will do you all the world of good
