This little bed and breakfast is a quaint place to stay right next to bear lake on the west side. The service was excellent, always a good breakfast in the morning, enough towels, blankets, etc. This is an ideal place to spend a quiet get away or a good place to stay while doing activities around the lake. There are lots of options of things to do so if you have the time it is worth spending a few days here.

We highly recommended Kip and Cindy's beautiful bed and breakfast! The breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. Our room was exceptional down to the beautiful plate of homemade cookies! And Kip and Cindy were delightful!

Driving from Salt Lake City to Jackson hole Wyoming stayed one night here and was pleasantly surprised at beauty of property across street from Bear Lake...beautiful. Cool breeze from open windows in Bee Hive room were great. Gourmet breakfast was outstanding and our hostess offered plenty of refills. I should have closed windows before sleeping, heard road noise thru night but could have been quieter with windows closed. No a/c but it was 45 degrees at night so pleasantly cool. Fresh baked cookies and chocolates in the room were a nice surprise and bath and body products were provided in bathroom. Live it!

Clean. Attractive decor. Beautiful yard. View to Bear Lake from our room. Watched the deer eat the apples on the trees in the yard. Fantastic breakfasts each morning. Friendly and accommodating and knowledgeable hostess.

This is a favorite place for us to slip away to. Cindy and Kip welcome us each time with those wonderful chocolates, fresh baked cookies reflect their amazingly thoughtful details. Oh breakfast skillfully created to enjoy. Our room was so romantic as this visit there were thunderstorms over the lake the view from our room was a front row delight and not to forget the fantastic fireplace gracing the room, a great weekend! The front porch is so welcoming with a warm cup of coffee easily accessible in the dining room. I must mention the glass enclosed breakfast area overlooking the lake and their amazing water features. It is the perfect place to step away to. Thank you, a lovely place on an amazing lake with color changes that rival the rainbow!

The innkeepers, Kip & Cindy, are personable and very knowledgeable about the area. Each breakfast of our 3-day stay was excellent- fresh fruit, homemade jams, tasty biscuits, great entrees. Bear Lake is beautiful and the dinning room is definitely "a room with a view." Don't pass up an opportunity to stay at The Bluebird Inn!
5 on September 06, 2016
The room we had was lovely. The B&B is well maintained and in a beautiful setting. We did not have breakfast due to our schedule. I rated it outstanding, because I had to rate it, but I feel confident that it would have been outstanding!
5 on August 17, 2016
The Bluebird inn is one of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed inn. I stayed in the beehive room, which was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hostess was extremely accommodating, and there were lots of "extras", snacks, sodas, and the like, that I didn't take advantage of but were impressive nonetheless. The hostess also gave me a $20 gift card to the local restaurant (which was in a country club and very good as well) for no apparent reason except for generosity, for we were celebrating no particular occasion in our stay. I would recommend this place to anyone who would be staying in the area.
5 on August 04, 2016
We had a great stay at the Bluebird Inn. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The room was wonderful. We were a little concerned that there was no air conditioning with an August stay, but open windows, a ceiling fan and the lake breezes made it really comfortable. And the food for breakfast was out of this world delicious!

Cindy and Kip were terrific hosts and were incredibly accommodating! The shower could use an adjustable head but other than that, everything was super!

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.

...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...

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!

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

The Inn is clean and the amenities spoil you! We will return to this beautiful Inn on the shores of Bear Lake!

The 1 night stay at Kip and Cindy's Blue Bird Inn was a wonderful way for us to wrap up our Grand Teton/Yellowstone trip on our way back to Salt Lake City to fly back home. Cindy made us feel very welcome right from the moment that we checked in. The house is very comfortable and well appointed. No TV, but that was just fine with us. We had 3 couples traveling together and stayed in the Anniversary Room, The Beehive Room and the Bear Room. All of us felt that sleeping here that night was the best night's rest we had all week. Rooms were extremely clean and felt like home. Breakfast the next morning was delicious! Cindy made a marvelous breakfast pizza with fresh fruit and homemade biscuits and jam. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. We definitely want to come back.

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!

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!

Cindy and Kip are warm and gracious. Cozy room, spectacular view, lovely landscaping, fabulous food, wonderful experience!
5 on August 03, 2014
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.
5 on July 31, 2014
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!
4.8 on July 26, 2014
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!

It was a bit pricey for my budget but for having such an awesome experience it was delightful and refreshing.
5 on July 13, 2014
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 is one of the most relaxing places we have ever stayed. The breakfast is delicious, rooms very clean and Bear Lake is gorgeous. We come every year and love it.
5 on August 29, 2013
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!
5 on July 12, 2013
We booked the B & B for the whole weekend and had the rehearsal dinner and the wedding the following day here. We were able to accommodate all the bridal party and many family members. Cindy and her family were extremely helpful with all the details. I'd say they went above and beyond to make our daughters wedding the wonderful day it was. I highly recommend having a wedding or just a get away at the Blue Bird Inn. The location is perfect, it's peaceful and the rooms are fantastic as is the wonderful breakfast they serve. Thanks to all the Motta's, Cindy, Kip, Nicole and Jan. We hope to come back again. Cherie Jones

For a chance to get away from work & kids, this p,ace is awesome. Waking up each morning looking out onto Bear Lake is gorgeous... This has become my wife's favorite place to go each year for our anniversary get-away.

After a week of wildlife, trails and cabins, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and comforts of this home and its owners. We'll definitely stay again if we're out that way.

So beautiful and peaceful, wanted to wake up to this scenery and excellent breakfast for more days! The caretakers are terrific. Thank you for a memorable experience.

We stayed at The Bluebird Inn on our way to Yellowstone and simply loved our experience there, from the quaint room to the expertly landscaped grounds, scenic view, hospitality, and a great breakfast. We even made arrangements to stay at Bluebird again when we were disappointed by a dude ranch on our way back from the Park. It was like coming “home.” I highly recommend it for couples, young and old (we’re in our 60’s).
5 on August 16, 2012
We stayed in the honeymoon suite as it was the only room available and it was GREAT! So much room and so clean! The views were outstanding. The service was exceptional and the breakfast the next morning was terrific! Thank you Bluebird!!!
5 on August 07, 2012
Simply put, the Bluebird Inn is the ultimate in a Bed & Breakfast stay. The beautiful Inn itself along with its exquisitely landscaped grounds including a running stream, ponds with lily pads and a fountain, and a beautiful green manicured lawn immediately attract one's attention. The ultimate attribute of the Inn though and the wonderfully warm welcome and service one receives from the hostess Cindy Motta on arrival which continues throughout your stay. To top your stay off, is the gourmet breakfast that's provided. Being located not too far from the Inn, it's always nice knowing we'll return again for another enjoyable stay.
5 on July 25, 2012
Everything about our stay was perfect! The Bluebird Inn is very well done. Loved the history of the home. Our stay was beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, quiet and very romantic. Thank you to the Motta's for making it an 'outstanding' experience to stay with them. Our breakfast was especially delicious. Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you again.
5 on July 14, 2012
A most enjoyable stay! Very friendly and helpful! Would like to return soon.
5 on July 08, 2012
What a delight! The breakfasts were exceptional, the service was superb, the rooms were decorated beautifully, and the grounds were gorgeous. This bed and breakfast is the best one we have ever stayed in. We liked it so much we've decided to have our family reunion here next year. Hats off to the Motta's!
4.2 on July 02, 2012
Great experience. Very nice, helpful folks. Website photos don't do justice to the actual experience. I had some doubts about the "5 star" quality. Not to worry, this was/is a great choice. Wish we had stayed an extra day to experience the breakfast (we were up and out at 5:30 AM to do the Bear Lake Monster Century bike ride). Forced to give a Dining score, but we only grabbed some snacks.
4.8 on June 19, 2012
Not a fan of b&b's my hubby made concession to try this one and he found out it was a great place to stay! He was not uncomfortable at all and found Kip and Cindy to be most hospitable! Try this one!

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast. I saw the location while driving back from a job and decided to book a room for our anniversary weekend. We arrived to an empty house with an envelope on the door and were both pleased at the trust given to just give us a key and allow us to roam. Fresh cookies were provided and the hot tub was ready to go. We loved the Beehive room and woke early to see the sunrise on Bear Lake out the bay window (spectacular view). The breakfast really impressed us with it's quality and presentation. We both felt the quality and feeling we got were well worth the price. We are already talking of booking again next year.
5 on November 01, 2011
The whole experience was wonderful. We celebrated a birthday get-away and the Inn left a wonderful piece of birthday cake, a card and treats! Breakfast was fantastic!! The room was spotless and we were very well cared for!
5 on September 13, 2011
We found ourselves booked at the Bluebird Inn with a wedding party, and enjoyed the the beauty both in the accommodations as well as the surrounding grounds. The innkeepers did an outstanding job not only caring for a full house, but did a beautiful job on the wedding. We are now planning our next stay when we can spend more time on our own.
5 on August 14, 2011
The hospitality of the innkeepers Cindy & Kip was great! The grounds of the bed and breakfast was beautiful,the landscaping and water features. I loved the lily pond. We had a very peaceful night sitting on the porch looking at the wonderful view of Bear Lake and listening to a running stream, it gave you an impression of a mountain stream with all the conviences of home. They had cookies and candy in your room, and also available snacks in the dining area. The breakfast was excellent with more than enough to eat. It was a fun experience. We would recommend this bed and breakfast.
4.4 on August 02, 2011
Kip and Cindy Motta were wonderful. Visiting with them, having an outstanding breakfast, getting to meet other guests and enjoying the beautiful surroundings made this a truely enjoyable get-a-way. We will certainly consider coming back next year when our family has their "Bear Lake" outing. We would normally not spend this much money but felt the warm and cordial breakfast time made the experience unique and worth it.
5 on July 28, 2011
I was only going to stay one night but because of the fabulous view and amenities of the Bluebird, I stayed a second night. You won't be disappointed.
5 on July 27, 2011
We visited this beautiful bed and breakfast the first night of our vacation and it set the tone for the whole trip! The weather in mid-July on Bear Lake was to die for....and the accomodations were spectaculer! Good view, good food, friendly and helpful hosts, beautiful clean rooms and grounds...what more could we ask? We will go back again!
5 on July 19, 2011
Cindy and Nicole arranged a beautiful wedding for us, with exquisite attention to detail. They were gracious and very accomodating. The grounds are stunning with some very unique touches. We had a great time and some perfect memories with family and friends. Kim Williams, Pocatello, Idaho

We stayed in the "apartment" quarters over the 4th of July weekend of 2011. While it was much more room than 2 people needed, it was the only available space so we took it! The apartment sleeps 10 people and is very spacious and would accommodate a large group very nicely. Loved the decor and the cozy feeling of the entire house. The outside environment is absolutely beautiful and so very relaxing! Loved everything about this inn and will definitely plan on staying there again in the future!
5 on June 26, 2011
beautiful, clean, romantic. friendly and accomidating service. delicious breakfast. worth the trip and the price!
5 on June 06, 2011
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary this year. We were very impressed by the professional yet friendly service. We loved the accommodations, they were clean and well kept up. The grounds were nice as well and offered a great place to sit and relax overlooking the lake. The breakfast served was by far the best we have had. We have stayed other places before but this one tops them all!
5 on October 11, 2010
We have stayed at many B&B's. but this one exceeded them all! The friendliness of the owners topped it off. The entire two-night stay was a memory we will always treasure, and we hope to visit this beautiful B&B sometime in the future. We both agree that it was a "perfect" experience.

We had a nice 2.5hr morning walk along the lake road to the Marina and back; then a huge yummy breakfast at 9AM to get us on our way. The facility is beautiful and the innkeepers are gracious. This is a super place to spend your first night after arriving in SLC, on your way to adventures in Yellowstone.

Inn has both beautiful location and grounds. Our room (Anniversary) had great view, was roomy with the kind of light that made it the perfect place to relax. Exceptional breakfast, and gracious, engaging hosts. Free round of golf (with 2 night stay) and hot tub made our getaway truly exceptional.
4.8 on July 17, 2010
Breakfast stands out-what an exceptional meal in which to start my day. The view of the lake was also exceptional. The landscaping was lush and several water features that were music to my ears and a feast for my eyes. I definately plan to return in the future!!

The Bluebird Inn on the side of a hill is a delightful place with a great view of Bear Lake and outstanding gardens and general ambience. The Beehive room is spacious, comfortable and nicely furnished; the breakfast was exceptional including a fritatta, bacon, biscuits, several fruits, juices and terrific coffee. All in all, a great place to stay - not to mention the friendliness of the hosts.

It was for our anniversary. My wife did not know where we were going and once she saw the Bed & Breakfast, she thought it was the most beautiful place she has seen recently. She loved the outdoor feeling.
