Nice mountain room. Pine walls and comfy beds with a swing on the deck! We rode motorcycles there so as soon as we arrived we jumped in the pool and enjoyed cooling off!! The staff was very nice and helped us find places to eat closeby. It was great!

My buddies and I stayed here for a weekend in July. We stayed in room 110 which accommodated 8-10 people. From the outside, you wouldn't think that this room was big, let alone accommodate 8 people. Boy, we were wrong. This room was like a second home. You walk in to a huge living area with couches, flat-screen tv, and... More

My friends and I were looking for a place that can hold all 8 of us. I was skeptical at first, but when I got there it was great. My friends loved it too. Definitely beyond our expectation and worth the money. There is a grocery store across the street, a brewery right next door, and down the street was... More

After much research I decided to stop in Kernville en route from Yosemite to Las Vegas. The plan was to arrive late afternoon and then go rafting in the morning before continuing to Las Vegas. However there was no water and so no rafting! Kernville seems to be a little known hunting, shooting, fishing gem. The Kern lodge was comfortable... More

We went to Yosemite which was boring. We left early because we were bored and my husband found a place to visit. He picked Kernville because our last name is Kern. We were invited to use the big house which is breathtaking and so peaceful. Kernville is a place that has no fast food restaurants. All or most of the... More

Friendly staff and animals. Unique rooms with plenty of amenities. Excellent fire pit and BBQ area as well. Also steps to Kern River Brewing Company. Walk over and grab some tasty food and delicious craft beer!

Kernville is a great little town and this is a good place to stay. Our room with 2 doubles was just fine, the owners and her pet dogs, Rockie & Rollie, very friendly. The room had it's own little area with fridge & microwave and was clean and tidy and quaint. Parking right in front of the door. The pool... More

From the moment we arrived, we were never short of wowed! The staff is phenomenal. They have put a lot of thought and love into the units. Many recent upgrades throughout the property. Kids had a BLAST with the giant outdoor chessboard and checker board. The pool is great for all ages as it's graded from 2 ft to 8.....my... More

We spend 3 days at the lodge, and enjoyed each of them. Friendly, helpful staff in a wonderful little town. Aimed to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and well equipped. The brewery next door is a good place to have a bite to eat, or try a home brew IPA. There are tons of things to do in... More

We visit Kernville every summer and really like the Kern Lodge for a place to stay. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly, professional and helpful. It's not fancy but it's convenient and well maintained. It's located within walking distance to the main grocery store in town and next to our favorite place to eat, the... More
