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...

Three of us stayed in the little house and it was an absolute pleasure. This is a quirky property full of character without skimping on comfort. The house had every creature comfort we could have wanted except for a bathtub which may have helped after days of skiing but the shower was so great I didn't miss it. Walk around...

Hi there and thank you for your lovely words on your stay with us here at Bimblegumbie, We loved having you here and am very happy that you enjoyed the "new shower" in the Little House....

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...

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...

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
