Bimblegumbie was clean, quiet, ideally situated, and had everything we needed for a great family vacation. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and their dog was adorable. They were always available and seemed to pop out of the main house anytime we thought about heading inside to ask a question. Everything in our house was clean and ready to... More

Me and my partner stayed here for the weekend, we stayed in the little house. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by lovely hosts who showed us around!

Stayed one night. Great location, great experience. Host very friendly and helpful. Very serene. huge gardens with lots of artefacts, some quirky. Good walks. Very close to wildbrumby distillery - definitely worth a visit and a chat with host.

The uniqueness of Brimblegumbie is the result of years of dedication and effort by the owner & host Pru. Everything was provided for and it was like home away from home. We stayed in the Penthouse with our dog and had a thoroughly relaxing get away. The property has great walks, scattered with sculptures, installations and landscaped gardens. A peaceful... More

This was our first stay at Bimblegumbie (we stayed in Little House), but it won't be our last. While there are lots of things to do close by (obviously skiing in winter – the skitube is 5 minutes' drive away; but also walking and exploring, and summer's wonderful) (and Jindabyne's just 10 minutes' drive away), there's a lot to do...

Wow this is a great and slightly off-beat place to stay. Set on acres of ground with all kinds of artistic installations, the rooms are fully self contained, very clean and so cool! Might not be everyone but if you like something different with great hospitality from owner Pru and have an off-beat appreciation of art this is perfect. We... More

This place is put simply a home away from home! My husband, dog and I were welcomed with open arms and enjoyed the many quirks in the garden. Our host couldn't do more to make us feel welcome and our dog was allowed with us at all times. We didn't want to leave and will be returning!

I had a great stay with dogs and friends. The Little House is a fun "tiny house" with luxurious beds featuring down mattress toppers. Plenty of heating. Delightful grounds and bush walks keep the dogs happy. A dog pen lets you safely leave the dogs while you head off to the snow. An experienced host makes for a very relaxed... More
