We got a room (that can fit 5 persons) in the main house. It comes with a small kitchenette which gave us privacy to do some simple cooking. The breakfast provided by Prue was yum and sumptuous!!! Our pet dog was equally happy throughout the stay. Its location is fantastic - half way between thredbo ski resort and jindabyne. The...

Hi there and I thank you for your very kind words on your stay here with us at Bimblegumbie. The room is called the "Black & White room" and is individually designed.

I loved this place! My feeling was that if I was going to design a guest house I would want it to look and feel exactly like this. We stayed in the Penthouse. The view of the garden is great and it has its own little balcony you can sit on and gaze out. The bed was super comfortable and...

Stayed in the studio for 2 nights during the ski season. The room was warm and comfortable and fairly quiet despite there being a large family group in the upstairs apartment. Pru is a great host and the whole place reflects her personality. The main lodge area is spacious and has plenty of books and DVDs to keep guests occupied....

This is a blast from the past. Trip Advisor seems to know everywhere I have ever been - a particularly memorable stay from about 12 years ago when I spent some time here with a ski team racing in Oz for their winter. Lovely place with lots of character, very charismatic owners and great rooms. Very flexible regarding breakfast time...

Hi there and thank you for your lovely memories of Bimblegumbie. I also apologise profusely for the long delay in responding. It is especially a joy to me also when I see guests after a long interlude...like greeting old friends back to the scene of the crime.

Can't recommend highly enough. We stayed in the bungalow for four nights. Prue is welcoming and helpful. The bungalow is very well equipped and the fire is fantastic. Walking the grounds is peaceful and relaxing and taking our little dog with us was an added bonus. Lovely to see all Prue's artworks and collectables.Thanks Prue

Family of 2+2 stayed in The Little House for 3 nights early September. We pretty much agree with other reviewers; the place is cosy, peaceful, welcoming and eclectic.

We were lucky and were able to book after a cancellation in the guest house. We are usually reluctant to stay somewhere with a shared bathroom, but this place workers nicely. Such a lovely energy and we enjoyed getting to know Pru and the other guests. We will be back!

Hi and thank you for adding your comments regarding your stay at Bimblegumbie. The real pleasure of having guest accommodation comes from meeting guests such as yourselves. As a return guests business of many years, with changing social times, the rewards of offering hospitality in the Guesthouse definitely outweigh any tiny negative ones. We look forward to your next visit....
