The Inn at St. Gertrude is temporarily closed.

Since the Inn reopened when Idaho's COVID-19 guidelines allowed for non-essential travel, our COVID-19 response has been under continual review. We have watched as the number of cases in Idaho has climbed and these cases have hit closer and closer to home. Due to the current circumstances and out of an abundance of care for our guests, our employees, and the monastic community, we have decided to close the Inn until further notice. This decision will remain under continual review, and it is our most fervent desire to reopen when we believe that we can do so in a way that is safe for everyone concerned. Please keep yourself healthy and do your part to protect those around you. Questions or concerns can be directed to Will Hunter, Innkeeper, at inn@stgertrudes.org or 208-451-4321.

What do you do if you are an innkeeper but can’t accept guests? Our innkeeper Will Hunter reflects on the challenges and invitations of this strange time.
