The Bidwell House accommodations were wonderful. It is clean and well furnished. My stay was for two nights. I saw a young gentleman when I checked in and the waitress for breakfast the next morning. I was surprised because when I've stayed at other B&B's the hosts always make it a point to greet you at some time during your... More

The location is perfect nestled amongst meadows in the shadow of My Lassen. The fall colors are amazing.The town of Chester is very small, but the people are very welcoming and sincere. A short drive from Lake Almanor, and 30 minutes from Mt. Lassen. The room we had was the Robin's Roost which has three windows with excellent views. Youwill... More

One of the best B&B's we've stayed in. Great accommodation. We had a very comfortably furnished room, spotlessly clean, bright and airy. Don't be daunted by the three course breakfast. Some places serve everything on one plate - this is just more elegantly presented. No request for extra toast or a variation on the dishes served was too much trouble.... More

The Bidwell was a very delightful, well maintained B & B. We stayed in the Mt. Lasson room which had a new bathroom . Home made cookies greeted us and the breakfast was superb. We will come back! The owners were very accommodating.

Owner is trying hard and providing good service & value, clean & fresh genuine historic building, a nice start to our holiday, breakfasts were excellent. Shower in round bottomed bath a bit of a challenge, but would certainly stay here again & highly recommended

We stayed here two nights during our trip through the North-West USA. This inn is a larger then usual B&B, but it knows how to keep the real B&B style and environment. Large rooms and a loverly garden. The house itself is stylish. The breakfast is one of the best we ever had in a B&B. A real 3-course gourmet... More

We can only say good things about Bidwell House and our stay there. Our suite was so roomy and well furnished and the bed gave us the best 2 nights sleep of our US Road trip. Lassen NP exceeded our expectations and is an easy drive from Chester. Every comfort at this B&B has been added to ensure comfort from... More

This renovated farm house with a modern addition is the perfect base camp for fishing, hiking, and visiting Mt. Lassen. It is located in the charming town of Chester about an hour east of I-5 across from Lake Almanor. Eva and Filip are fabulous hosts and very friendly. The breakfast alone is worth the stop. The farm house rooms are... More

Beautiful grounds! Parking is a bit tight but there is an alternate lot on the other side of the property. The staff is super friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful living room and game room area. The front porch and chairs are relaxing and tranquil. The breakfasts are served in three courses. A fruit, main dish and then a... More
