About Sarah Bernard

I love Innsbrook! I purchased this chalet in 2008 for my family and as a vacation rental. I'm a real estate agent in St. Louis and also a TV host on STL TV. I love promoting Innsbrook and St. Louis to my rental & real estate clients and talk show guests on STL Live. I have three teenagers who have grown up at Innsbrook -- fishing, swimming, working the concession stand -- you name it. It's their favorite place, too. We try to spend as much time as we can at Innsbrook but can't make it every weekend so we love to share our properties with other families.

Why Sarah Bernard chose Missouri

Chalet 1717 is awesome -- I loved it the minute I saw it because of its open space, great lake view and wonderful lakeside dock for morning coffee & evening stargazing. There is lots of upstairs space, too, for the kids and a wonderful screened-in porch for meals and games. I work more than I should and the cell service is perfect so it's hard to resist. More than anything, though, Chalet 1717 is private and cozy and feels wonderfully home-like.

What makes this chalet unique

This chalet is on an acre and has beautiful views through the HUGE windows of the trees & wildlife. I have a paddleboat & two kayaks because we all love spending time on the water. And I added a fire pit in 2013 for more outdoor fun. The kitchen is unbelievable for an Innsbrook chalet -- so spacious and I stock everything you need for cooking a family meal. I try to make your vacation easy by providing great basics in the chalet (linens, beach towels, games, toys, books, coffee, etc etc) and I'll send you a full list to help you plan. Plus, I'm like your personal concierge! I'll send you lots of information of things to do at Innsbrook and -- if you're staying for many days -- some fun day trips nearby. Call me anytime! I'm happy to help you choose the perfect chalet and to help you plan your vacation, and I'm available if you need anything while you're there. I also have a super fabulous chalet across the street! If you need more space (or less -- it's small & romantic) you can rent either or both together! I automatically discount 10% off the price of both if you rent both for the same nights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at Chalet 1717. The scenery and peace and quiet were wonderful and we would definitely consider coming back. The Chalet was just as the pictures on the website showed. I wanted to thank you for the list of things to do for a day trip as well. We did take advantage of that list and went to Six Flags one day. The weather couldn't have been better for just lazing in the lake. Thank you again for your hospitality and the chance to rent such a beautiful place for our vacation.

IBK Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible weekend at Innsbrook! The chalet was comfortable, inviting and contained everything you need for a trip away from home; plus the view was spectacular. I often rent homes via VRBO and I have never dealt with a home owner as efficient and professional as Sarah. I would highly recommend this rental! I appreciate that it is pet friendly (we didn't take advantage of that this time, but will keep it in mind).

The Perfect Weekend Getaway (even in the winter)

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending 4 increadible weekends at Sarah Bernard's chalet this winter. Innsbrook is gorgeous this time of the year as well, and to see the lakes covered in ice and snow was stunning. The chalet is perfect in and and out: comfortable, nicely decorated, fully equipped, and with views to the lake that you just can't get tired of looking at. We found everything that we needed. We hiked, watched the stars, grilled barbecue, cooked hot dogs and s'mores, played board games, relaxed by the lake and so much more.The kids had a great time walking around, picnicking, and sledding. We had guests over a couple of times and they loved it. We could bring our dog which made it even better. Sarah was always available whenever we needed and was very flexible regarding check in and check out times which we really appreciated. We could break the winter blues and we had a great time with family and friends while there. It's one of those places that leaves fond memories. We miss chalet 1717 already and can't wait to go back!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing this wonderful place.

We had a dinner for 10 here, and it worked out great.

I am in the restaurant business, and this is a well-equipped kitchen. Great space for more than one cook in the kitchen.

Well-maintained and nicely appointed.

I look forward to visiting again!

Thanks You!

Musician's Dream

  • 5 of 5

We have been enjoying this chalet since 2009. It is a beautiful setting for a musician. We escape into another world every time we come out. We can't say enough about Sarah. She is the best. We book this chalet every 6 months. It is just right for our group. We love it! It's all about building memories!

To see all of you enjoying your music and your time together warms my heart so much. This is what life is all about - time together, enjoying favorite things & friendship. Thank you for your visits & see you again in May!

We have been staying in this chalet for about 6 years now and it is always a wonderful experience.
