Bell Tower Suites is nestled in the quiet, residential area Saint Clair, Minnesota. Just a short 10 minute drive from the Mankato/North Mankato metropolitan area, Bell Tower Suites is the perfect vacation destination. The Mankato area is alive with restaurants, night spots and theaters. Families appreciate the beautiful river valley setting for its scenic views, canoeing opportunities 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!

For the Laura Ingalls Wilder fans, the town of Walnut Grove is a nice day trip away. Come in August to see the pageants. Also explore the deep valley and the Betsy-Tacy homes of the Maude Hart Lovelace series in Mankato.

This beautiful vintage structure is built on a diagonal, giving guests a sense of grand architecture while surrounding them in the calmness of the original round-topped stained glass windows. Vacationers will find the suite to be the perfect rental for their family gathering while a honeymoon couple will find the peace, quiet and anonymity that they long for. This 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 TV and DVD player. Free Wi-Fi is just one more of the amenities available in this stunning facility. Management is conveniently on site should you need anything during your stay.

Scrap bookers and quilters 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. The craft room houses a computer and printer station. A Cricut cutting machine is available for guest use, no need to lug your personal one around on vacation. The computer and Cricut are loaded with the ‘Sure Cuts A Lot’ software program which allows crafters to cut lettering and shapes directly from the computer. There no longer is a need to purchase expensive cutting pattern cartridges when utilizing the ‘Sure Cuts A Lot’ program.

Whether you are looking for a bustling night life, a scrap booking retreat, a unique building in which to host a family gathering, 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 are Dawna and Steve Engelhardt. Steve is a native to Southern Minnesota, while Dawna hails from Arizona. We can be on site to meet whatever needs you may have. It would be our privilege to have you stay at Bell Tower Suites.

Steve & Dawna Engelhardt purchased this lodge in 2013

We purchased the church 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.

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 10 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!

We rented both suites for three couples for a Christmas/New Years celebration and absolutely enjoyed the comfort and ambiance. The suites were very clean and the owners were great to work with. There are plenty of attractions within 20 minutes.

Our family wanted to meet somewhere with our aging mom, where we could gather, sleep, cook together, and give the grandkids time with Grandma. The Bell Tower Suites was absolutely perfect, just what we had hoped for. It has been beautifully re-done, very comfortable, it had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen was complete with everything, including coffee, we were able to spend time together in a very beautiful setting. Our age group included 20-somethings to grandma, who is 89, Our hosts were so gracious and accomodating, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect situation! I hope we are able to come back again with grandma, everything was very easy for her to get around, she felt very comfortable. Thank you so much!!

Our christian band was scheduled to play for a church service in North Mankato, and we wanted to come a day early to set up ahead of time so that we were not rushed on Sunday morning. We booked The Bell Tower Suites because of it's proximity to our gig, and we were intrigued by the fact that this was a old church....fitting for our group. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a gem in the quaint tiny town of St. Claire, just minutes from Mankato. The owners, Dawna and Steve, and their family were there to greet us when we arrived. They were absolutely delightful, and pointed out everything we needed to know to make our stay comfortable. They even went the extra mile, by supplying coffee and fresh fruit. The suites are very roomy, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed our Saturday night meal on the relaxing patio, and soaked in the sounds of neighborhood on a perfect summer evening. We had invited the owners, Steve and Dawna to the church event that we would be performing at, and it was such a pleasant surprise on Sunday morning to see their entire family walk into the church and join in the service. Thank you for that joyful surprise! You are wonderful hosts, and we will highly recommend The Bell Tower Suites! Blessings, your friends of the 2 Copper Coins Band

Owner's Response: 2 Copper Coins,
I sent your CD to my parents in Arizona. They loved it. I hope you can come down again soon. We would love to do some worship time with you.

We were soo happy with our stay at the suites. It was everything and more. We had 11 people in our group and with that many people we still had more than enough room. Large open kitchens with very very high vaulted ceilings. The fire places were a great touch, becuase it was cold out when we came and that just made it feel warm and cozy. Everything from floor to ceiling was CLEAN, very well maintained property. I really liked the jacuzzi tube. Location was perfect, it was a short few minute drive into mankato where there is everything from mall to theaters and more.
I would highly recommend this property to everyone looking for a clean and relaxing stay.
