We checked into Bimblegumbie during the off peak season for two nights and quite enjoyed the serenity. Bumbledimple offers an array of varying accommodation depending on the requirements; we managed to snag the "Little House" which proved to be more than enough for just us and our infant boy - although the price for an off peak stay was a...

We had 12 wonderful days soaking up beautiful Bimblegumbie, 9 days in the Lodge and 3 in the Studio. They were equally gorgeous spaces. Bimblegumbie's so peaceful, beautiful, comfortable and friendly. First there's Pru and Craig to make you feel right at home. I'd been told by the realestate agent who recommended Bimblegumbie that Pru would look after me. He...

We immersed ourselves in the atmosphere of Bimblegumbie for 8 glorious day. We stayed in the 'little house' which was self contained with everything we could possibly need, fluffy colourful doonas on comfy beds and the added quirkyness of a ladder to reach the second bedroom the loft. We had access to the main house which was electric awash with...

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...

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! The little house was really cute and a perfect size for feeling cozy and warm on those freezing cold nights, We were able to cook delicious meals in the kitchen,...

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...

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...

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!

“Do not stay in main house or in the little house. Stay in cabins down the front of property. Better setting near table areas.”
