Clean, Comfortable, Creative Accommodation with a Difference!
About Kiera Poelsma
Hi there :) I'm a freelance artist, gardener and student. I enjoy cinema, making art, reading, drawing, building, dreaming, thinking outside the square, the winter fire, a pot of tea, spending time outside. I have a kitty cat who thinks he's the Fonz. We live a simple happy life in Hepburn.
Kiera Poelsma purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Kiera Poelsma chose Hepburn
When I came to this property, it was derelict, full of rubbish with a resident family of birds. A little old miner's cottage, with a checkered history. Rumours it was once home to a Joss House are supported by Chinese coins and broken crockery found whenever I dig up the garden. Breakneck Gorge, which is to the back of the property, was named back when the football oval was a race track. One of the horses bolted & plunged its jockey over the edge & into history. A dozen years & a lot of work has seen this property, still known locally as 'Chum's place' transform into Vera's Cottage, creative & stand out guest accommodation. If you appreciate history, diversity & the arts, see you at Vera's :)

Relaxing little pace , would book again
Great thanks heaps was lovely.
The cottage was well appointed and we loved the decor and it was cute and quirky and comfortable inside.
A charming cottage. It makes you smile.
We stayed in the apartment, not the cottage, but I think both share the same fun, relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed sitting on the verandah in the evenings with our books and a cuppa.
Lovely and quirky .
It was a great place to stay. I loved the quirkiness and the beautiful surroundings. The only negative thing that i have to say us you can hear every noise from the next apartment. As much as I love animals listening to the dogs cry was not nice. But it was a beautiful place for the short stay we were there.
Yes, I totally get that.
It’s not a common occurrence, thankfully.
As most guests who bring their dog tend to take them out exploring with them.
I’m sorry to hear they left him home alone.
I imagine his cries would have been somewhat distressing to hear.
But am relieved to hear you enjoyed your stay nonetheless.
Thank you for your feedback and I hope this isolated incident won’t stop you from choosing Vera’s again.
Very cute and cozy
Cite and cozy, quite close to the mineral pool and spa complex.
