A Note from your Innkeepers , Lee & Marilynn Jackson
Here at the Churchyard Inn, “where hospitality is a habit” we are grateful for the opportunity to share this lovely old place with you. Our goal is to make you feel at home, to feel a bit more treasured and to find a sense of peaceful calm in this serene countryside.
Every day we serve “life savors”…
Complementary bottle of wine (and chocolates) in your room
Fine china and Mom’s sterling silver on a community table in the festive dining room
Grandma’s coffee cake (or other home baked delights) part of your country breakfast menu
Homemade cookies (even gluten-free on request!) by your bedside
Warm brandy near the old piano
Engaging conversation when you want it, leisurely quiet when you don’t
Soft music, a warm fire on chilly fall evenings
Our Mission is to provide you with a physical space to nourish, enrich and sustain you while you are here, leaving a lasting impression of comfort and joy.
Our Vision is to create a feast for the soul, offering you a banquet of delights physically , emotionally , mentally , and spiritually. In a chaotic world, we want this part of your journey to be a respite from your challenging routines, whether you are here to cheer on your favorite team, to celebrate a wedding or loved one, to bask in the beauty of the scenic Palouse, or simply a stop between destinations.
Our Values are the foundation of our efforts and behaviors:
creativity: from the art on the walls to the plants in the ground, the flowers on your table, the colors and music that surround our guests during your visit
quality: fresh, locally sourced food on the table, detailed and refined appointments in every room
community: welcoming everyone equally to share the common table, allowing friendly conversation and connection with guests, many of whom develop friendships that last through the years
caring: responsive connections to your needs, sensitivity to your privacy and space
It’s so gratifying to hear our guests say:
“This place is my second home—only I don’t have to do any of the work.”
“All of your thoughtful touches make this such a comfortable place to be.”
And one we have nothing to do with but appreciate as well:
“The views from both decks breathtaking. The view behind the inn is amber waves of grain that has to be measured by the square mile instead of by the acre.”
