Experience Benedictine hospitality on the Camas Prairie! The Inn at St. Gertrude is a bed & breakfast conveniently located in Cottonwood, Idaho -- midway between Spokane and Boise. Situated on the grounds of the historic Monastery of St. Gertrude, we welcome all to share the vibrant atmosphere of the Center for Benedictine Life community.

Stunning views of the prairie and mountains are a benefit of the ecological stewardship plan for the grounds. The Inn at St. Gertrude is home to a light-filled forest with abundant wildflowers and numerous species of wild birds.

Enjoy monastery-made jam and bread at breakfast, and tantalizing fresh desserts in the evening. Celebrate your anniversary and other special occasions in warmth and tranquility. Open year-round.

The Inn at St. Gertrude features four well-appointed, air-conditioned rooms with pillow-top mattresses and private baths. Beautiful antiques, warm inviting colors, and outdoor living space - along with a flatscreen TV and wireless internet access - make visitors feel at-home.

A delightful weekend (10/31/23 - Tripadvisor)
The rooms are beautiful and comfortable but the hospitality was outstanding. The Innkeeper Marilyn provided for every comfort.. The grounds are lovely and I really enjoyed the museum and welcome center. Overall, it was a wonderful visit. I can’t wait to return.

Best place to stay on the Camas Prairie (10/11/23 - Tripadvisor)
This is the best place to stay on the Camas Prairie. It is quiet, beautifully decorated, each room has a small porch with adirondack chairs, and a gorgeous view of either the prairie or the wooded hill with plentiful deer and quail. The coffee was delicious and the beds were comfortable.

Amazing (9/12/23 - Tripadvisor)
We were spoiled by Marilyn and had a wonderful trip to St Gertrude’s and thoroughly enjoyed the sisters and the grounds, the history etc. The views were spectacular as well as the the home made breakfasts and evening desserts. Thank you all so much.

Voted "Best Place to Stay"!!!
