Bush Haven Cottages are operated by Tim and Pam Creeper since 1997. They have lived on the 63 acre site for 23 years and have been beautifying it ever since. They were enjoying the property so much they felt selfish keeping it to themselves so in ’97 they opened Bush Haven Cottages with their first self contained cottage and called it “Bear Cottage”, the 2 bedroom. Bear cottage was the second house on the property and was bought by the previous owners to the property from Casterton in Victoria. Along with many repairs and the kitchen fixed up and a nice slow combustion fire fitted in the lounge area. The bathroom was renovated and fitted out with red cedar and Blackwood. Then the lounge was opened up and fitted with Bird’s eye, figured Poplar. In 2007 they added the second cottage (Rose Cottage, the 3 bedroom) to Bush Haven Cottages. Rose cottage was transported to the site as a home for Tim and Pam's Mother. She loved the place so much she had to come and live there, hence the name “Nanna’s Rose Cottage”. Both cottages are decorated in Tim and Pam’s own eclectic style, with wood, antiques, teddy’s and memories of Nanna as the building blocks of something quite special.
Bush Haven Cottage gardens are over 6 acres and have extensive plantings which merge through the remnant Stringybark scrub around the houses. Tim, Pam and Nanna with a bit of help from their 4 lovely children, planted the garden areas with native and exotic shrubs and trees. Some of which are rare. New plants are still going in the ground every year in an ongoing attempt to create the most peaceful and beautiful property.
Bush Haven Cottages were brought about to share this wonderful part of God’s marvelous creation that the Creepers get to call home so you can take in the tranquility, see the marvelous flora and fauna. The amazing birds, the roo’s, possums’, koalas, native orchids of all kinds and many others. When you need a break and a bit of respite or just a holiday. Bring the children or family and friends to the Creepers of Grundy’s Lane, Dismal Swamp and be amazed at just how not dismal it really is.
