• McMenamins Old St Francis School - Bend, Oregon

      Generations of students passed through the doors of St. Francis School in the six decades from 1936 to 2000. Today the school has relocated to a modern building in Bend and the former schoolrooms are now guest rooms in this unique destination hotel. Other parts of the old school are home to a pub, a restaurant and an in-house bakery. The basement dining room is now a brewery and the gym a small movie theater. Best of all though, is the mosaic-tiled soaking pool, open to guests from 7.00 am to midnight.

      If you go:
      Be sure to sample one or two of the excellent beers served here - Hammerhead pale ale is real favourite! Old St Francis School is one of more than 20 breweries operated by McMenamins across Oregon and Washington.
