Guest reviews for The Bidwell House

Everyone (3)
4 out of 5
This was a very cute bed and breakfast, nicely decorated, clean and antiques galore in rooms. A really big shower in the suite room. The owners were friendly and a stray cat frequented the front porch. The breakfast was very good serving a frittata with an English muffin. The two drawbacks were the noisy traffic which our windows opened onto and the fact there wasn’t any air conditioning. So the rooms were hot in late afternoon but did cool down around 10 pm. There was internet but it was very slow.

The owner said I could reschedule my reservation then he told Travelocity I could not. Completely dissatisfied. I will not schedule there again.
