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!


Exceptional b&b

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.


A slice of heaven on the lake

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!


Beautiful B & B

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!


Bluebird Inn... Absolutely amazing

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.


Wonderful Place to Stay at Bear Lake

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!


Great hosts!

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