Just a quick overnight stay but think it may turn into many more. My first time to Kernville, and I guarantee anytime I go back or through this will be first on my list of places to stay. Great place w/ great service. Highly recommend!

The resident dogs (Rocky, and they just rescued... More

I've been staying here since 2007 and it is, quite simply, a great place. Clean as a pin with a couple of nice pups to welcome you, the lodge feels like home away from home. It's close to a grocery store and plenty of nice restaurants. Sue (the owner) always welcomes me like an old friend and that's pretty nice... More

Every year for more years than I can remember a group of friends have gathered on their motorcycles at the Kern Lodge to spend a night and kick off a long weekend trip. The owner, Sue, remembers all of us, treats us like we're family and is always totally accommodating. The Inn is clean and its facilities are up to... More

The accommodations at the Kern Lodge are excellent, and Sue and Caitlin are just delightful. They do everything possible to ensure that your stay is an enjoyable one. You really are made to feel at home. When in Kernville this is definitely the place to stay! Even the housekeepers and maintenance personnel are unusually helpful.

We stayed for one night but wish we would have stayed longer! We were in the Kern River room 110. Highly recommend it. They are so accommodating and had everything we wanted or needed. There are games in the room to play. Good way to get away from technology. They have chess in the room and a big chess board... More

We stayed here while passing through. The rooms were very cute, like little cabins in the mountains. Everything was clean and well maintained and the staff was friendly. Would definitely visit again if passing through the area.

Clean pretty, & friendly. A breah of fresh air in beautiful Kernville. They even accepted our crate trained dog that they don't always considered. We will be back & we highly recommend The Kern Lodge.

Thank you for your review. It isn't often that we consider pets, that is very true. We enforce strict rules such as: 1. Pets should be crated/kenneled. This limits any shedding or damages to the room. 2. Pets cannot be left alone in the room, not even if they are crated/kenneled. They must accompany the owner when they leave the... More
