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... More

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

We stayed here in mid August, we went with another couple and there 11 year old, we stayed in the Bungalow.

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. Pru is a considerate and happy host. The Little House is small in size but comfortable enough for our family. I did miss a warm bath (shower only) at the end of... More

This is a cosy and nice place to stay closed to Thredbo and Perisher ski resorts. The room is big and clean as well as the bathroom (shared bathroom). Staff is very friendly and breakfast has variety of options from fruit salads to yummy scramble eggs with a toasty. Great atmosphere, lovely music, plenty of table games, and a billar... More

This is our 3rd stay at Bimblegumbie and it gets better every time. Not an ounce of beige in sight, but heaps of happy people and eclectic stuff. Delicious breakfast with plenty of fruit and homemade jams and spreads. We all love this place. Thanks again Pru.

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!

This is a beautiful place to stay with your family and they welcome dogs too which was really great. This is the second time we have been to Bimblegumbie and we have been super happy both times. Quiet, relaxing and beautiful surroundings. Close enough to Jindabyne and the slopes. Thanks for a great holiday!

Bimblegumby is a special place. Eclectic, warm and full of surprises, this is an enchanting place to stay. Just outside the Kosciusko National Park and just 15 minutes from the Ski tube on the Thredbo road you have every option at your door if skiing is your thing. But Bimblegumby has more to offer than easy access to the snow... More
