Lovely B&B with fabulous view

We were lucky enough to get to spend one night at the idillic Bluebird Inn. The room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the lake. We had a really fun dinner up the street at Coopers. Breakfast was perfect for another day of site seeing. I can't wait to go back.

We have stayed at the Bluebird many times and are never disappointed. If you want to enjoy a beautiful sunrise over the lake, stay in the Beehive room.


Great Stay!

This was an absolutely wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience. The view of Bear Lake is fantastic. Cindy was a gracious host and very helpful in giving us a history of the area. We would definitely stay there again and have highly recommended the Bluebird Inn to our friends and family Gary & Monica


Excellent experience!

We spent one night on our way to Yellowstone/Jackson Hole. The inn was clean, comfortable and inviting. Our hostess was friendly and served a wonderful breakfast. The property is beautiful. We would certainly go back if we are ever in that area again.


Celebrating a Birthday

This was our first time to the Bear Lake area and the Bluebird Inn B&B was the perfect place to stay! The restored farmhouse and the beautiful manicured grounds overlooking Bear Lake made for the ideal location. We stayed in the Anniversary Room. It was clean and cozy with a very comfortable bed and our private bathroom was clean and accommodating. The view of the lake out the windows was spectacular. A delicious breakfast with endless coffee was provided the next morning by our exceptional hosts Cindy and Kip. We highly recommend the Bluebird Inn B&B for your next visit to Bear Lake.


Bed and breakfast next to Bear Lake.

5 on September 07, 2017

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.


Awesome stay!

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!


Night away from the world

From the moment we walked in it was quiet, peaceful, warm and friendly. The breakfast was fantastic. We so enjoyed our stay and we will be back. We sat on the front porch for a while and looked out over the lake and didn't want to leave. We could have sat there for hours.
