Bern is an unincorporated community in Bear Lake County, Idaho. It is located in the southeast corner of the state, about four miles from Montpelier.


In 1875, John Kunz II moved the townsite and named it after his native town in Switzerland. A school was established in 1876. In 1884, the first public school was organized. The school and all church services were held in a one-room log house.
