The Bidwell House is a very nice place to stay at. Everything is decorated with outstanding good taste and with high value. The innkeepers are very friendly and know the area very well. We stayed here for three nights and would have loved to stay longer! There is so much to see and do in the area and it is... More

We stayed only one night at the Bidwell House but had a lovely time. Our room was well appointed but what really stood out what the service we received from everyone who works at the House. They really make you feel welcome. The breakfast was really lovely, it seems to change everyday so although you don't get a choice it's... More

Everything is first class. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and large. The staff is exceptional. An outdoor patio for outdoor relaxing, an indoor sunroom and large lobby if weather doesn't,t cooperate. Breakfast is presented as if you were in a high end restaurant and the food meets those expectations. For the experience and value, this place is a bargain.

We stayed in the Hummingbird Room. The bed was very good; the bathroom was Eva, the innkeeper, and her staff were very helpful. The only negative was that neither wi-fi router could be counted on to give reliable service in our room.

Beautiful property, friendly people, good breakfast and you are served! Room was huge and attractively decorated. Liked the porch and yard swing. The Lake Almanor is close and we watched the sunset which was lovely. WIFI did not work in room but did outside. This was a stop over to Lassen National Park which I would highly recommend also. Wish... More

Beautiful flowers outside. Lovely grounds. Enjoy sitting outside in the gazebo, the swing or the numerous rocking chairs. The breakfasts were delicious! The only complaint was the squeaky floors. We had to walk very lightly to try not to disrupt other patrons but overall, the place was great! Perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway.

We stayed one night at the Bidwell house in June 2016 and picked the Old Glory room. The room smelled fresh, was very clean and very spacious. Carpets looked new. The bed was one of the best beds I have ever slept on and the bathroom had both a shower and a jacuzzi tub. There was nobody present when we... More

We did a short stay at this beautifully maintained B&B near Lassen National Park and Lake Almanor. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. We had full access to the grounds and main house during our stay with many areas to sit and relax. The included breakfast in the morning was hearty and delicious. The hostess and staff were very...

A very homey and relaxing place to stay. Hostess Eva and her husband run the inn to be warm and very professional. Fabulous breakfast was included and complimentary sherry by the fire. Interesting grounds and history behind the inn. Their very organized garden provides fruit and vegetables for interesting breakfast offerings. This is the best place to stay in the... More

We were in town on business and booked here on a recommendation. The property is beautiful, snow covered and quiet. We were greeted by Eva who owns the property with her husband. He and the boys were at snowboarding competitions but we shared in their medal successes! Our room was welcoming, clean and had nice views. The main part of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the "Old Towne" Chester, The Bidwell House B&B Inn is the only three-diamond AAA rated Inn in the Chester/Lake Almanor basin. Fourteen distinctly different guest rooms, the swing on the porch, the unusual collection of antiques and attention to little details are all for the comfort of our guest. Chester/Lake Almanor basin and surrounding area spread across a natural wonderland created by millions of years of geologic forces, a crossroad where the granite of the Sierra Nevada meets the lava of the Cascades. Enjoy hours of pleasure on Lake Almanor with its 52 miles of shoreline, in Lassen Volcanic National Park which boasts the southernmost volcano in the Cascade range and in the 1.2 million acres that make up the Lassen National Forest and Caribou Wilderness area. This is a playground for all seasons, for all ages and any lifestyle. ... more   less
