Experience the Quiet
Our lovely setting overlooks the rolling hills of the Palouse and is lined by evergreen trees, lush green lawns and flowering gardens. A casual stroll may lead you to the patio or one of the three decks where you can enjoy the view of sunrises and sunsets, share a picnic and maybe a glass of wine or a leisurely chat. Delight in the peace and quiet of country life as you listen to the songbirds and the gentle breeze through ancient pines.
Listed on the National Historic Register, our solid brick masonry three story building was originally a convent built in 1905 to serve the beautiful St. Boniface Catholic Parish right next door. The Church, a marvel in 1900 artistry, is open to the public from dawn to dusk each day. The Churchyard Inn, where historic architecture meets contemporary comfort, was converted to a bed and breakfast in 1995 to avoid the wrecking ball and plans for a parking lot. We know you will enjoy the simple elegance the Inn has to offer you, from private baths for every spacious room, cozy linens and robes, carefully preserved original woodwork and hardware, and local artwork of the guest artists who showcase the Second Floor Gallery.
We have joined with the Artisan Barn and are currently featuring work from two of their artists on a two month rotation, starting in March. Opening our Gallery for 2018, we are featuring the work of Barney Saneholtz and Jan Vogtman. Both maintain studios at the Barn and are graciously sharing their paintings with us.
Barney Saneholtz has been painting since the age of 10, taking inspiration from the great outdoors to create pastels and watercolors. His work shows around the area from Moscow to Lewiston, and of course at the Artisan Barn. It is a delight to feature a variety of his pieces here at The Inn! For more info about Barney, visit www.artisanbarn.org/barney-saneholtz.php.
Jan Vogtman calls Troy her home and Idaho scenery her muse. Shapes and shadows, especially in the Idaho rural backroads where old farmhouses and buildings “with character” find their way to her watercolor expressions. Filled with detail and delight, her work is a treasure we are happy to share! Learn more about Jan on her website at www.janvogtmanart.com.

Sausage, bacon, eggs, and home-baked muffins often tempt your palate. If you have any dietary preferences or restrictions, please let us know.
