The St. Bernard Lodge is located close to both Lassen Volcanic National Park and Lake Almanor. It is full of history and turn of the century decor. All rooms are country casual with knotty pine interior. The lodge is a great place for individuals, families and small groups to enjoy the outdoors and relax.

We were greeted in a rude manor upon arrival at the St. Bernard Lodge at 8pm on a Friday night, and offered one key to our room and told we'd be sharing bathrooms with other guests and need to bring our key or we'd be locked out of our room. Unfortunately, we were locked out within the hour of receiving our key and the hosts were nowhere to be found. After calling and texting for hours, we gathered bathroom towels and slept on a shared bathroom floor until I went downstairs at 7am the next morning to find the owner casually checking her email. She was shocked to hear we'd slept on the bathroom floor yet unapologetic. ASK FOR TWO KEYS TO YOUR ROOM! The food is not good and there are limited options. Stay in Chester -- the people are way nicer and you'll have more options for dining and good times. The St. Bernard is a last resort option if you're going to Lassesn and there's nowhere else to stay.

Just returned from a 2 night visit to St Bernard Lodge/lassen National Park. We loved the location and feel it is on the side of the NP that is better suited for the hiking trails. We stayed in the Evergreen room. Thought it was cute and decorated to suit the lodge atmosphere. Had a nice view out of the window of the pond below. Could not hear road noise at all at night. We felt safe here with covig guidelines in place. Very clean lodge, especially the bathrooms. Towels were thick and fluffy. Then there is the food! We enjoyed our evening meals outside which was relaxing after a long day of hiking. They have a small menu of dnner and breakfast items they allow their guests only to choose from. Breakfasts is extremely large, and prepared quite nicely starting with a small fruit cup. Absolutely no complaints and would definitely stay here again. Innkeeper, Sharon, has lots of good information of things to see in the area. Lastly, the bed was very comfortable. I think it is a pillow top. That was a nice suprise to sleep so well.

We went as a small group of friends for 3 days hiking and biking in Lassen Park. Lodge was perfect. Special historic atmosphere, rustic and welcoming. Sharon, owner and manager, made sure experience was very good. We enjoyed the pool table, the historical items displayed throughout, the local beer and in general the atmosphere. Close to the park. It is a small lodge with handful of rooms, so good fit for small groups, couples or family. Not for business travel. Note that bathrooms are outside of bedroom.

I could not recommend the St. Bernard Lodge more if you are going to Lassen National Park or in the Chester area. The Lodge is affordable and I've never had a better B&B breakfast anywhere (and breakfast is included!) You get to choose a variety of breakfast options including sausage breakfast sandwich, traditional egg/meat/toast breakfast, omelette or scrambled eggs. Additionally to the large breakfast they serve you a fruit bowl, coffee, fried potatoes, and, a delicious house-made pastry (We had bear claws, apple strudel, and coffee cake.) Other than the amazing breakfast, the owners, Sharon and her husband, are incredibly nice and hospitable. They recommended hikes and things to do in the area daily. Additionally, our car got a flat tire the Saturday we were in Lassen, and Sharon offered to pick us up at the tow truck place in Chester and take us back to the hotel (We took her up on it! She was such a lifesaver!) The only downside to the B&B is that there aren't individual bathrooms per room. The upstairs has two bathrooms/showers for all the guests and there's a bathroom downstairs for diners. I didn't mind at all, because they keep the place clean, but during COVID I could see how travelers might want their own bathroom. St. Bernard Lodge has great food, service, and is a convenient location!

2 couples stayed for 2 nights as our hub for access to Lassen park. Neat property. Definitely an “old school” experience so don’t expect modern but it has everything you need and the breakfast was consistently exceptional. Very accommodating with scheduling.

I stayed 5 days with Sharon and enjoyed every minute. Great hostess with a plenty of tips. All food I had was very good and plenty - try the scampi with garlic/beer/wine sauce. The interior is very thoughtful and perfectly clean. The location is great in proximity to the entrances in the south of the park and very close to Lake Almanor.

Imagine looking out your bedroom window over a view of meadows, piney woods and snow-capped mountains. My wife and I just spent a very relaxing few days at the St Bernard Lodge. Sharon is a wonderful hostess and provided us with delicious breakfasts and dinner. There is lots to see and do such the boiling fumaroles at Mt Lassen Park and the peaceful Deer Creek meadow to walk. This area is an angler's delight with Lake Almanor minutes way. Don't miss the fantastic vista of Mt Lassen and Mt Shasta near the junction of 44 and 89 on the way to Burney Falls.

We chose St Bernard for its location near Lassen NP, and the inn's straightforward offerings of king-sized bed, full breakfast, dinner on request, hot tub. It filled all the squares for a small, comfortable lodging at a reasonable rate. I would usually shy away from an inn located right on the highway, especially as this road hosts quite a few logging trucks during the day. But it gets quiet at night, which is important where there is no A/C to mask night sounds. At the end of Sept., we needed to keep the room window open and the fan on to bring in cooler air. When 4 or more rooms are full, it is a little crowded with only 2 bathrooms upstairs. We stayed 3 nights and I did not realize there is at least one bathroom downstairs. The food is very good and very plentiful. My husband and I shared a dinner each night. We were able to make a to-go sandwich out of breakfast. The host(s) do all the jobs, so they can be a bit overwhelmed, which may account for the cobwebs all around the hot tub area, clutter in the common rooms, and peeling paint, etc. But the rooms and baths are clean, beds comfortable. The hot tub is large and hot. The pool table is like new. Any request is met. I would definitely recommend.
