This is our second visit in about three years. Fantastic atmosphere, not "corporate". Suits us as a family of four and/or with family and friends and other children. Located on a quiet mountain-country block with big shady trees and mature gardens, lots of artful and humorous objects that are part of the place and people. If you like gardening and nature, you'll probably like Bimblegumbie (BG). It's very convenient - a short drive to Jindabyne with the Lake, shops and cinema and short drive to Thredbo with the toboggan slide and chair-lift, and the river and the mountains, and the Wild Brumby Schnapps Distillery. Cafes and bakeries all over the place. Plenty of space at BG makes it easy to 'get away from it all (including your family)' and have some quiet time, or find things to entertain. The main house is a B&B-type arrangement where other guests are also staying in rooms in the house and sharing the kitchen. No pressure to be friendly if you don't want to. Large pool table, DVD player and very large screen in the main house made for alot of fun. BG is very well equipped, and the owner and her partner are helpful but not intrusive. Plenty of other self-contained cottages and studios. Last time at BG, we stayed in the bungalow with our two children plus friends and their two children. Really nice BBQ and outdoor table and chairs to ourselves in a quiet, shady spot in the garden. It's simply delightful to stay at BG. Very relaxed and restful. Quiet. I would highly recommend it as a wonderful, special place to stay.
