Bed and Breakfast Style
As you ascend the staircase to the second floor of our bed and breakfast inn, you experience a sensation of stepping back in time a century or so, reminiscent of a simpler, unhurried era. The feeling of old world charm is prevalent in each of our vintage continental style rooms. The second floor offers 7 rooms and can sleep up to 20 guests. The picturesque hallway is adorned with vintage artwork and a mural sized picture of St. Bernard. The rustic warmth of knotty pine interiors and turn of the century decor will endear you to the charm of St. Bernard Lodge as so many others have enjoyed over the years. A favorite spot to relax is the deck overlooking the trout pond.
If you're traveling with a group of friends, colleagues or family members or are searching for that perfectly quaint, back-to-nature, non-hotel experience for family reunions, friendly get-togethers, club or organization meetings or any other type of special event, our vacation rental plan will suit you perfectly. We offer very affordable group rates for lodging on the upstairs floor as well as affordable meal rates that include the convenience of meal planning, preparation and cooking.
