“Amazing place ... !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We (me and my wife) had stayed here for the labor day weekend a couple of years ago. This was perhaps the most relaxing weekend we've ever had.

There were a lot of cancellations because of weather that weekend (it snowed). Only one other room was occupied apart from us. The manager is great. They have a really nice bar and the best chef. The food was absolutely amazing.

This was our first time at a BnB. They had two shared restrooms and the rooms were a bit small but the service and the setting is great.

Highly recommended.

This place is marvelously funky, with excellent food and drink and helpful and friendly staff. It provided the perfect end to our long weekend at Lassen Volcanic: nice wine, our first TV (at the bar of course!), hot showers and flush toilets. The hot tub was a bonus treat, as were the nature walks both on and off the lodge's property. If you find yourself in the vicinity of Chester, indulge in a stay at St Bernard!

Room Tip: The rooms to the back are quieter as they are away from the main road. And save room for breakfast...

I have driven by the St. Bernard Lodge several times in the past and it was a huge mistake! Last night my family and I stopped to check the place out. It is great inside and the dinner we had was fantastic! The owners were very friendly. The clam chowder was delicious as well as the steak and shimp scampi entrees. If you are driving past the St. Bernard Lodge on hwy 36, stop in and have a meal, maybe stay the night. You will not be disapointed. I know we will be back. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Just spent a long winter holiday weekend here with my friends and we all truly enjoyed our stay. The owners are wonderful-- very accommodating to our needs and always cheerful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and while the decor is a little dated it's got a certain "cowboy" charm. The overall feel is very comfortable--- as if you're lounging in your own home. The included breakfasts were enormous and delicious. I was thrilled that I was served vegetarian dinner dishes made to order...Where does that ever happen? The room/food prices were right too. Lovely hot tub out back. We will be back!

We were expecting to stay somewhere in Chester when we found every motel in town was booked with firefighters and loggers doing cleanup from the Reading fire. We called the St. Bernard Lodge at 8:30pm! and the very gracious owner offered us lodging, even though they had no other bookings that evening and were looking forward to a well deserved night off. The lodge is beautiful, clean, historic, and wonderfully quirky. We love the different personalities of B&Bs, and we love St. Bernard lodge. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed in St Bernard Lodge for 2 nights.
Rooms are small, bathrooms are nice, especially the one with the bath tub.
Breakfast in good and enormous. The lady gives good advises on what is to be seen in the area and even on your way to your next stop if you are on a roadtrip.
