Charming B&B with Fantastic Hosts!

4.6 on May 16, 2016

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Cindy and Kip were so hospitable and a lot of fun to talk to. We wished we had more time there to explore the property (we were only able to stay for one night). And the breakfast was amazing!

My wife and I loved our stay here in the welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Great conversation with fellow guests over the breakfast table and our hosts could not have been more pleasant. Charming room. Sorry we had only the one night and would recommend unreservedly. Michael Oakland. West Sussex. England


Best little B&B

5 on September 16, 2015

Not only is the Bluebird Inn a beautiful place to stay, it is also owned and managed by some people who really care about your stay. We stayed in the Bear Room. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The best thing about the Bluebird is breakfast. It is beautifully prepared and delicious. We were served eggs benedict Bluebird style with fresh fruit and hashbrowns. Thanks, Kip and Cindy, for a really great stay. We will encourage our Mississippi friends to visit.


...best place to stay in the Bear Lake area...

...we have a family cabin at Fish Haven and when our kids and grandkids join in for a reunion or holiday weekend...it is very crowded...so my husband and I stay at the Bluebird Inn...The Mottas are excellent hosts, friendly, and accommodating. The property is well maintained and the rooms are spotless...Breakfast can't be beat...attention to detail in every way is incorporated in the quality of and selection of food choices...and its artful presentation...and when you arrive, there is a chocolate sampler and homemade cookies in your room...don't pass up this B&B...


Always a pleasant experience

A quaint Inn with welcoming, relaxing atmosphere and comfortable rooms. The grounds are beautiful and inviting. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms are cozy and private. The hospitality is fabulous. The cookies and chocolates, robe and slippers, fresh coffee and breakfast -- you'll feel special when you stay here!


Everything we had hoped for

5 on August 30, 2015

We bike ride in Bear Lake and last year as we rode by we said this looked like a great place to stay... So this year we booked a night and we were very pleased with everything. Friendly people, fresh cookies and chocolates for us when we arrived, accommodated breakfast so we could get up earlier than the normal breakfast schedule so we could get riding our bikes..tremendous place to stay..right by the Lake ..we smiled as we rode by it again on our bikes. We will come back next year
