Who could possibly resist the mellow summer afternoons or the crystal clear winter skies over Mt. Lassen? The area offers a diverse selection of recreational activities. Near the Inn are opportunities for hiking, golfing, boating, water-skiing and bike riding. You will also view multitudes of wildlife and engage in possibly the best fly-fishing in California. During the winter the Inn offers immediate access to cross-country skiing, with downhill skiing and snowmobiling nearby. December is a favorite time for Christmas tree cutting. In a "yet to be discovered" area, the Bidwell House is located on the southeastern slope of Mt. Lassen. Chester and its surrounding area are rich in the history of gold-mining, ranching and logging. The Inn provides a great resting spot between the great valley of California and points east. The Inn is perfect for hideaway seekers, honeymooners, business travelers, weddings, reunions and corporate retreats.

Stayed here while hiking through Lassen National Park. Had great breakfast and everyone was super friendly and helpful. The room was clean and perfect to come home to at the end of a long day of hiking. Would stay here again!

Lovely home in a quiet rural area. Special touches like sherry by the fireplace. My kids especially enjoyed playing badminton on the large lawn. Breakfast was very special, with a starter and then a gourmet entree. Highly recommended!

The room was lovely, very comfortable bed. There was some traffic noise but a fan was provided (I also had earplugs with me but they were not needed with fan on.) Grounds were very pretty and interior inviting and there was guest fridge which was very handy. We had breakfast on patio and service was good. Set menu with 2 courses. The day we were there it was yogurt with bran and raisins followed by eggs Benedict. Also had juice and Coffee was very good too.

This was an amazing place to stay. I brought my sister up with me for a stay. Our room was sweet and the grounds are beautiful. Loved the sherry after dinner. She's gluten free and the staff did a wonderful job providing a delicious breakfast. I would go again to this B&B anytime! And right across the way is beautiful Lake Almanor. What a treat! Loved the gardens, swings, and springs in the front yard.

The Bidwell House was wonderful! We will be returning next summer. The room was nice, grounds were beautiful, and the owners were very accommodating. The only caveat would be that the bed was way too soft for me. I think they could invest in a firmer mattress. I don't think the average person wants a hard bed or a super soft one. Somewhere in between would be good. My bed sank in the middle.

The Bidwell House was a delightful place to spend the evening. Eva and Filip made me fill at home immediately, and were so attentive to making sure that my stay would be pleasant. Rooms are clean and themed with specific decor, the breakfast was great, and the cozy amenities that were available made the whole experience a great time. I highly recommend this B & B, Reynold Franca

The carriage house was perfect for our needs. We came for a family wedding at Lassen Meadows Ranch and had 5 adults that needed to stay. The grounds were beautiful and the cottage so cute and private. The breakfast was amazing and they were so sweet to accommodate our special family needs as we shuffled people around. I would stay again in a heart beat.
