“Second times a charmer!!”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

Second time staying there and it was just as good as the first time. Innkeepers and all of their staff were very helpful. The grounds are so nice. It is a great place to feel at home and to relax. The breakfasts were delicous, got alot of food. Homemade cookies at night, yum!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

We stayed at the Bidwell with 4 other couples, using it as a base to hike in Lassen Volcanic National Park. The setting of the B&B is lovely; our group took advantage of the large front porch with lots of wicker chairs and a swing.

Every room had a private bath and was decorated in a specific theme. Each morning began with a delicious three course breakfast. There was even a jar filled with fresh baked cookies.

The Bidwell House B&B is certainly a place I would recommend!

We stayed here following a trip to Lassen National Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hostess was friendly and efficient. The rooms were large, clean, comfortable, quiet, and nicely decorated. The decor, at least in our room, avoided the cheesy old fashioned look that many B&Bs adopt. The private bath was large and modern. The house and grounds were very attractive and well maintained. Breakfast was an efficient, no hassle affair. Food was not outstanding but certainly good enough. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to others.

This is a charming property and the service from the inn's staff was fabulous! I highly recommend this inn to anyone looking for a quality place to stay in Chester. While the restaurant options in Chester are somewhat limited, if you're looking for some really good food go to the Lake Almanor area on the east side of the lake.

We so very much enjoyed our stay. The morning breakfast was delicious and a perfect start to the day. You won't go wrong picking the Bidwell on your next visit to Chester!

We were on our honeymoon and visiting relatives in Chester, this was our first experience of a BB. I wished we had the opportunity to stay more than one night. The atmosphere and food was top notch!

What a fabulous B&B! We've been visiting the Bidwell House every year for several years now, and have always had a memorable experience. The themed rooms are fun and very clean, the garden is peaceful, and the breakfasts are always tasty and well presented. Eva and Filip are wonderful hosts as are their kitchen staff. The location is easily accessible, and there is shopping across the street. Lake Almanor and Bailey Creek golf course are within a 10 minute drive. I'd recommend a stay at the Bidwell House and hiking or golf for a fun weekend getaway, or mid-week retreat.

Room Tip: All rooms have a theme. Robins Roost and Meadow View both overlook the garden. Very nice. Annie'...

My husband and I have family in Chester and Lake Almanor. The family tree roots are deep. We have stayed with relatives and at other hotels/lodges/rental homes over the years and decided to try the Bidwell House because we did not have the rest of the family along. We loved it. It was a wonderful way to see family yet have some independence and we got a little spoiled. We are going back soon.
