Bell Tower Suites is nestled on the quiet Main Street of Saint Clair, Minnesota. This is classic small-town America but just a short 10 minute drive to the Mankato/North Mankato area with every amenity you will need.
This beautiful vintage church is built on a diagonal, providing a sense of grand architecture with 24 foot high ceilings while offering serenity and calmness from the original round-topped stained glass windows. Guests will find Bell Tower Suites to be the perfect place for their family gathering while a honeymoon couple will find the peace, quiet and anonymity that they long for. Each suite is completely furnished with two bedrooms, living area, full sized kitchen, huge bathroom which includes a jet-air tub and separate shower. Everything is supplied from linens to dishes and utensils. The suite has its own home-style stacked washer and dryer combination. The living area is well appointed with a gas fireplace, flat screen HD TV and DVD player. Free high speed Wi-Fi is just one more modern amenity in this stunning facility. Owner/Manager is conveniently nearby should you need anything during your stay.
The Mankato area is alive with restaurants, night spots, shopping, theaters and many special events related to Minnesota State University-Mankato and Mankato’s significance as a hub in Southern Minnesota. You can appreciate the beautiful Minnesota River Valley setting for its scenic views, canoeing / kayaking opportunities, fishing and wide variety of parks, hiking and biking trails. There are a number of wineries in the area for those who enjoy wine tastings. If you are a sports fan, remember that Mankato is home to the Vikings Training Camp, traditionally held during the first part of August every year. Book early!
All of this makes Bell Tower Suites the perfect vacation destination.
For the Laura Ingalls Wilder fans, the town of Walnut Grove is a nice, easy day trip from Bell Tower Suites. Come in July to see the “Wilder Pageants” re-enact highlights from Laura’s life in an outdoor drama. Also explore the Deep Valley and see the real Betsy-Tacy homes from the Maude Hart Lovelace book series that was based in Mankato.
Scrap bookers, quilters, and crafters especially enjoy Bell Tower Suites. Perfect for a ladies’ get-a-way weekend, the suites offer lots of living space and lots of crafting space also. Each guest will find a full-sized craft table with individual task lighting available for her use. Imagine being able to set up your scrap booking materials - and leaving them set up and undisturbed for the duration of your stay! Located on the second floor, the craft room is situated in former Sunday school rooms.
Whether you are looking for a scrap booking retreat, a unique venue to host a family gathering, bustling night life, or a restful landing spot after a busy day of hiking and biking - - Bell Tower Suites provides the perfect spot to help you enjoy your well-deserved vacation time. We have had plenty special guest from Mn Twins and Mn Vikings. AP was here last year from the Vikings.

Year Purchased: 2007
About: We are Al & Kerrie Hertaus owners and builder of the Bell Tower Suites. We purchased the Building back in 2007, remodeled and made it into what it is today.
Why Saint Clair, MN, USA:
We purchased the building because of its incredible original architecture and because of its good fortune of being located in a welcoming village, just a few minutes from Mankato. The structure is very unique and accommodating for families, couples, and scrap booking groups.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Bell Tower Suites is unlike any other vacation rental. When was the last time that you ate a meal or watched your favorite movie while sitting near soaring stained glass windows? The generous living space offers room to stretch out and truly relax. It is the best of both worlds. Tucked into a quiet, family neighborhood with plenty of off-street parking, your night’s sleep is sure to be uninterrupted. Yet, just 7 minutes away is the busy social life of the Mankato/North Mankato metropolitan area. You’ve earned your vacation time – make the most of it with a stay at Bell Tower Suites!
