THE BUNDANOON GUEST HOUSE is one of the few original Guest Houses remaining in Bundanoon. Built in 1925, it still retains the charm and character of that era, including an open fire, and offers gracious accommodation for up to 36 people. The House comprises a generous guest lounge, public sitting room, large games and conference room, a large dining room, private dining room, bar, front verandah and an extensive garden.
The Guest House is situated in the friendly Southern Highlands village of Bundanoon. Being a small village, Bundanoon is a great alternative to the larger towns of Bowral, Mittagong and Moss Vale and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. With a population of just under 3000, our delightful village is a gateway to Morton National Park where you can walk for miles and take in the breathtaking scenery. Cyclist’s are also well catered for with kilometres of wide open spaces for the on road specialist and ever changing terrain for the keen mountain biker. It is a vibrant town, packed with old-world charm including Cafes, Tea Rooms, Restaurants, Gift Shops as well as a local Pub and Sports Club. Market days, held on the first and third Sunday of each month (except January), feature fresh produce, handicrafts and plants. The annual Scottish Highland gathering, Brigadoon, is held every April featuring all things Tartan. Bundanoon also hosts other annual events such as Winterfest and the Garden Ramble.
The recently refurbished Guest House is less than 1km from the town center, and offers comfortable bed and breakfast styled accommodation in a beautiful circa 1925 heritage house.

The Guest House was built on land in Railway Avenue originally owned by early settler Walter Grice, and then inherited by son Alfred Grice. The land was purchased by Mrs Elsie Russel in 1918, and subdivided in 1920. Mrs Mary English purchased six of the lots and in 1925 she built the Guest House known then as “Gemona”.
Gemona was sold in the late 1940’s, and in 1948 the name changed to “Tree Tops”. Some years later, the building was converted to flats, however the use was reinstated as an 11-bedroom Guest House in the 1980’s, by the then owner Connie Swift.
Tree Tops was owned by the Tarakson family between 1989 and 1997. During this time the Guest House became very well known for hosting Murder Mystery weekends, know as Dial M (for murder).
In the late 1990’s, the buildings and gardens were substantially altered by the new owners Rose and Grant Figtree. Harry and Karen Hull then became the owners and continued to run the Guest House as Tree Tops until around 2015.
Tree Tops was then sold to Jon and Della Fitzroy, who owned it for approximately 5 years. During this time, Jon and Della carried out substantial refurbishments and renamed the property to its current name “The Bundanoon Guest House”
The current owners, Lucie and Tim Phillips, purchased the property in March 2020, and have continued the refurbishments of the property, and run the property as a boutique Bed and Breakfast Guest House.
