We loved the St. Bernard. The location was perfect to enjoy a visit to Mt. Lassen, exploring the Lake Almanor area, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, visiting other local towns and lakes and finding great places to kayak. The food was delicious and plentiful. We shot pool, played darts and hung out in the hot tub. It was the perfect end to our vacation, until... On our last night, Friday, July 2nd at 6pm our car broke down... entering into a holiday weekend.
Everyone was booked full and no car rentals to be found and our car wouldn't be evaluated until Monday. We can't thank Sharon and family enough for talking us through options and ultimately beating the bushes to find us a place to stay and a car to drive while waiting out the weekend. Instead of a weekend full of worry and fret, we were able to enjoy it as an extended, tho unexpected, vacation. We made the most of it! Enjoyed our "bus" ride with Steve to Susanville to pick up a car. Explored Eagle Lake and miscellaneous museums and monuments. Watched a small town 4th of July parade in Chester and enjoyed the firework display over Lake Almanor. Can't say enough about the people and the area. Thank you for taking care of us, St. Bernard Lodge. We will be back!!
