We are delighted to share this beautiful setting with our guests. We opened the Inn in May of 2010 as a way to express our Benedictine values of Healing Hospitality, Grateful Simplicity and Creative Peacemaking.
Your stay is tended by Sister Chanelle Schuler and Sister Corinne Forsman (on the ends), members of the community of the Monastery of St. Gertrude. They both draw on rich backgrounds in healthcare and human services, as well as long histories of living the Benedictine tradition. They are also joined by volunteers Grant and Oblate Peg Griffin and Frank Halter (center).
In line with the monastic community's Philosophy of Land Use, we are an environmentally-friendly Bed & Breakfast. "We recognize our sacred responsibility to reverence and care for our land and to make proper use of the resources it provides. In order to live in harmony with the earth and to promote responsible stewardship," we employ a variety of resource conservation practices and recycling programs to create an experience of hospitality for our guests. We have been recognized as a TripAdvisor® GreenLeader for our environmental practices.
