Combine your next trip to Yellowstone with something special: A 64-rank pipe organ set in the quaint town of Paris, Idaho! Conveniently situated halfway between Salt Lake City and Yellowstone National Park, the Pied Piper is the perfect place to rest and enjoy good music and good company. Kelvin Smith, who built the house and the organ, is a guest organist on Temple Square, and loves sharing music with fellow musicians. Enjoy an informal concert, a chamber tour, shop talk, the Mason & Hamlin grand piano and a serious practice session on a 59-rank pipe organ.

The nine-bedroom house has four upstairs rooms all of which are available for guests, two complete with Queen-sized beds, one with a single bed, and one with a bunk bed. There is plenty of space for you and your whole family. The house sits on a one-acre lots with lots of open space surrounding it. The basement is where we live. The main floor has a bathroom for guest use, and the kitchen and dining room which guests can use. Breakfast of waffles or pancakes provided.

The Pied Piper is a musician's dream B&B, and we will never forget our stay there!”—Stephanie

What a unique place! Kelvin played his hand made custom pipe organ for us and we were totally blow away. Paris is a delightful small town just a 20 minute drive to Bear Lakes North Beach.”—Miss J

It was a wonderful experience to stay at Kelvin's house. The organ is a masterpiece that he built himself. Kelvin and his son are so nice that they both played the organ. They even let me played a few chords. We are so glad that we stayed there. The room is nice and cozy, a great stopping point for us from Salt Lake City to Yellowstone.”—Sisi & Xikang

We loved meeting Kelvin and Sharon! They are very warm and welcoming people. Their house is amazing—the organ in the foyer is unreal!! I've never seen anything like it. Kelvin treated us to some wonderful organ music and great conversation.”—Anna

Breathtaking. This has got to be one of the 7 wonders of the world. Even if you think you have seen an organ, the size and scale of it, up close, is a wonder to behold.”—Jordan and Alyssa
