About

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 sweetest place in Chester!

Filip and Eva are the best hosts. The crisp, clean air and quiet of the Sierras is even more enjoyable while rocking on the porch or sipping sherry in front of the fire. Beats a spa day.


Great time at Bidwell House

My wife and I met her brother and his wife there. We had business during the day, but we were in early each evening. Along with a couple of other travelers, we spent the evenings in the comfortable sunroom watching the World Series. Almost like home! The whole experience was wonderful. Breakfasts were very nice, and overall service was superb. We'll recommend it highly to friends and family.


Nice weekend away

We enjoyed our stay at the Bidwell House. We could hear our neighbors above us so next time we may ask to stay on the top level, otherwise we had an enjoyable weekend. We will be back.

My wife and I really enjoyed the Bidwell House. Though at first the room's seemed dated, and to an extent they were, that was over ridden by the very nice rooms in the main house and the hospitality of the hosts, particularly at Breakfast time, where we got the best breakfast of our trip.


A Good Stay

Very nice room and very nice people. Great breakfast too. Only complaint is we could not stay longer.


An excellent stay at the Bidwell House

3.0 on October 21, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bidwell House. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The room was perfect and the breakfast next morning excellent. We were given a list of restaurants to eat at in the evening which was a great help. The B and B was in a great position to explore the Lassen Volcanic Park. I would certainly recommend it.


Very nice B&B

4.2 on October 20, 2014

We enjoyed our one night stay very much! We were in the original house in a spacious, quiet room. Beautiful furnishings, plenty of pillows and blankets. Bathroom in our suite was very clean. Nice amenities (soap, shampoo, etc.) Nice selection of coffee and tea available all the time. The breakfast was outstanding and nicely presented and served. There was plenty of food, with several courses, all very good.


Charming and homely bed and breakfast

5 on October 17, 2014

We were made very welcome from the start by Eva, one of the owners. Bidwell House is a charming property with 2 relaxing guest lounges as well as an outdoor patio area and veranda complete with the requisite rocking chairs. There were plenty of guide books and magazines available to check out the next day;'s activity. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the power shower was much appreciated after a hard day's walking. The complimentary sherry and cookies on our return each day were also very welcome. The three course breakfast was well presented and always very nicely cooked by Eva. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here


A Wonderful place in a beautiful setting

4.2 on October 15, 2014

This is a tremendous place for a family get together. Excellent facility for kids to be kids and play in the great outdoors. Great things to go do in the surrounding area. We love the hosts. They are amazing and have done a really nice job of making their b&b feel like your home. We have stayed here several times and will continue to go to their place. We are planning on taking several friends there. Fall is amazing here!!!
