Charming B&B

Peaceful Retreat

The Bluebird Inn has beautiful grounds and is set on a hill across from Bear Lake. The views are fantastic, and we felt so relaxed staying there. Breakfast was amazing, and the owners are very friendly and attentive. We happen to be there during apple season so were able to enjoy the delicious fresh-picked fruit from the trees in the yard. Thank you!

Amazing stay on Bear Lake

What a great find during our trip out West! After a beautiful day on Bear Lake, we were greeted with such warmth at the Bluebird. The rooms were large and VERY clean! Would recommend to anyone!

We hope to be back.

This is the best B&B we've ever stayed at. The grounds are incredibly landscaped, the completely renovated farmhouse is cozy and inviting, and our room, the Anniversary Room, which had spectacular views of Bear Lake, was immaculate. The owners were friendly and fun to talk to, and the breakfast was wonderful. Can't think of a better place to stay.

Wonderful place

My wife and I spent one night in this great place; they simply give more than the one extra mile. The family that runs the place is just beautiful. We stay in a comfortable room with view to the lake. For sure we are coming back!

Wonderful Getaway

The place was awesome and the view out our window was more than we hoped for with the lighting storm over the distant hills. The Hosts were terrific and the food was excellent not to mention you didn't walk away hungry. Anyone looking for something a little bit different than you typical hotel experience must try the Blue Bird INN at least once. They even give you home made goodies right in your room!

Refreshing Bed and Breakfast.

It was a bit pricey for my budget but for having such an awesome experience it was delightful and refreshing.

The most romantic place ever!!!

My husband and I stay here every year for our anniversary and it is absolutely amazing! Very clean, quiet, and has a beautiful view. The hot breakfast that Cindy cooks every morning is five star cuisine, and she takes such good care of you. I love this place so much and will continue to stay there every year!
