We stayed two nights in The Penthouse with Bruno, the Corgi and had such a relaxing time. Bruno had a ball playing with Reggie, the resident dog and Bindy and Dash who were visiting. Pru is a very relaxed and warm host and her extensive collections of art, objects and plants are amazing! Eclectic is an overused word but truly not in this case. I love that with every corner you turn, inside or outside, you come across something you didn't notice before; maybe a bonsai snowgum or oak, a giant stack of jaffle irons or the bust of a lady coming out of a tree. I would certainly stay here again.

I first stayed here in the 1980s and it made such an impression that I remembered the name for a stay last week. It still exudes the same warmth and cosiness of a home away from home, that it did way back then. This bed-and-breakfast style place is something organic with its books and collectables and tasteful yet eclectic surroundings - you could never design it the way it is, its just grown that way. Nice warm wood fires in winter. Love it!

It was great returning to Bimblegumbie again and were never disappointed. Pru is just an awesome host and nothing is too much trouble. Very welcoming place to stay with all the best touches of home mixed with eclectic tastes gathered from a lifetime of interesting travel. We won't hesitate to return!

BimbleGumbie is a Gem hidden away in the Crackenback forest just off Alpine Way. We had a Lorikeet and a Cat stay with us in a room in the main building. I stayed for six nights and my friend stayed for 9 nights. Our room was small but comfortable. The shared bathroom and toilet was not ideal but did NOT cause inconvenience. I understood that there are other rooms that could be booked with private bathrooms if that’s your preferred option. I can’t really describe this as a hotel or a B & B. It’s like Home; an amazing home. My typical day was like this: Wake up after a comfortable sleep Full good quality Breakfast with five star friendly service with Prue, Craig and her team Chat with the other friendly Guests Half hour later, and we are at Perisher or Thredbo Amazing skiing Back to Bimblegumbie Put the ski gear in the drying room Get changed, shower relax, talk with other friendly guests Off to dinner with a good choice or restaurants at Jindabyne or Just next door at Crackenback Farm Enjoyed the rest of the evening in front of one of the two fire places in the common area The gardens at Bimblegumbie is like a Sculpture park. I recommend a walk around the grounds to view so many of those interesting surprises out there. If you can get to this part of the world, I recommend Bimblegumbie for comfortable accommodation and a mix of meeting great quality people with great quality skiing.

To say that Bimblegumbie has character is an understatement. We were a group of 6 couples and all were delighted with the accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble for Pru when doing the bookings. The gardens are amazing and the breakfast one of the best I've ever had. All in our group wished we were staying longer and hope to go back again soon.
