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!

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!

This was our first time to visit this part of Idaho. We found the Bluebird Inn online and we can not say enough about the wonderful time we had at the Inn. The decor was beautiful, bed oh so comfy, food and homemade cookies delicious and the grounds and view of the Bear Lake so beautiful. This Inn is a great place to enjoy the quietness and a perfect place for some R & R. We would rate this Inn as top notched at 5 star or more.

We had the opportunity to stay here at the Bluebird a couple years ago for a wedding. Our first sight was a beautiful home on a hill over looking beautiful Bear Lake. Little did we know that the views were going to be spectacular from the front porch! Bluebird Inn's landscaping is peaceful with fountains and flowers everywhere. Sitting on the porch or the patio either in the morning or in the evening will bring wonderful views of the grounds. The home itself has a rustic homey feel to it that comes with a great history! If you stay, you have to take the time to look at the pictures of its growth and read the story of its owners. The beds are comfortable with themes for each room. You'll find the rooms and house are well kept and CLEAN. The floors do kreek with the age of the house so if that bothers you, get a room on the upper floor. The breakfast is by far my FAVORITE part of the experience! I LOVE Cindy's breakfast and the way she and her family serves it! Food is normally not a big deal to me, but after staying a couple times now, I'm going for the food next time!
