Fodor's Expert Review Bluebird Inn

423 U.S. 89, , Idaho, 83287, USA Fodor's Choice

The most charming lodging on the western shore of Bear Lake happens to be just over the border in Idaho, set on a grassy bluff near Bear Lake West Golf Course and offering five rooms and a larger apartment decorated with country furnishings and colorful quilts. Owned by the owner of Logan's Bluebird Candy Company, the innkeepers greet guests with chocolates and cookies on arrival, and rates include a generous full breakfast that might feature French toast casserole or a tomato-basil frittata. The patio overlooking the lake is a lovely spot to sip a glass of wine late in the day.
