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.

Bed was uncomfortable. Lack of air conditioning made it very difficult to sleep at night.

Very good for a family of 4 spending time at Lassen National park. Good use of guest fridge and great breakfasts to get ready for hiking on long summer days. Ate a good meal at the Red Oinion near Lake Almanor, managed by the same in keepers.

Much better than staying at a motel and munch more value for money.

The Bidwell House is a cozy B&B with friendly staff, clean and comfy rooms with wonderful beds and decadent bathrooms. It's a great place to stay if you're enjoying recreation in the area - especially Lassen. Breakfast was served with a smile, and we loved the honor bar stocked with beer and a wine fridge. We hope to be back soon.

We had a wonderful 44th anniversary stay here in Chester! What a fun and peaceful place to come "home" to after hiking and biking during our days. We had wine/cheese/crackers on the gazebo, walked to town for dinner one night and thoroughly enjoyed the outstanding breakfasts with outstanding service each morning. We usually camp in our RV at the North Shores Campground close by but decided to do something different for our anniversary. It was a fun time!!

We had a lovely experience at the Bidwell House B & B. The room was comfortable and spacious; bath amenities were wonderful and the breakfast served in the morning was excellent! We will definitely recommend the Bidwell House to friends and would be happy to stay here again when visiting Lassen Volcanic National Park.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was. Everyone of the staff made us feel cared for, relaxed and pampered. I plan to recommend staying here to all our friends and family.

Our room had 2 large windows one with beautiful views of the meadow & lake and the other of the mountains. The grounds are also nice with lots of trees for shade. The owners were absolutely wonderful. You can eat breakfast in their dining room or they will even bring it up to your room. Food was great and we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this as the only place to stay in Chester.

Bidwell House bed and breakfast could not have been more perfect. After an extremely long month without a single day off, it was just what I needed to relax and unwind; the in-room Jacuzzi was a definite plus. My girlfriend and I had chose the "touch of romance" package since it was our two year anniversary, and having a wonderful breakfast delivered to the room was worth every penny, I'd suggest the "touch of romance" package even if you're not there for romance. The atmosphere and local surroundings and restaurants made this an unforgettable vacation.
