What a fabulous B&B! We've been visiting the Bidwell House every year for several years now, and have always had a memorable experience. The themed rooms are fun and very clean, the garden is peaceful, and the breakfasts are always tasty and well presented. Eva and Filip are wonderful hosts as are their kitchen staff. The location is easily accessible, and there is shopping across the street. Lake Almanor and Bailey Creek golf course are within a 10 minute drive. I'd recommend a stay at the Bidwell House and hiking or golf for a fun weekend getaway, or mid-week retreat.
- 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
