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.

The 2 room suite was beautiful, the beds were comfy, the bathroom was beautiful although it would have been nice to take a shower not just a bath due to no shower head or hand held shower head. The hosts were very pleasant. The food was disappointing. The omelet was good. But when away on vacation, it is always nice to be spoiled with upscale dining. A little more creativity to the breakfast menu would make the stay perfect!

My girlfriend and I spent a night here for our 1 year anniversary. It was a lovely room, perfect for a couple to stay in. We were accommodated nicely with excellent service, and a nice home-cooked gourmet breakfast!

My family and I stayed in the Stover-MacKenzie Cottage for a weekend. We really enjoyed the cottage with all the extra beds, full kitchen, wood burning stove, and living room. It was a perfect fit for us as we hiked all day at Lassen Volcanic National Park and came back and relaxed in the cottage at night. The facilities at the Bidwell House are beautiful and the fall colors on the trees surround the property just added to the scenery. The Breakfasts both days were outstanding. The presentation of the menu and the presentation of the food exceeded my expectations. I hope we can return to the area some time soon and enjoy the Bidwell House again.
