Specialties The Idaho Heritage Inn Bed & Breakfast has 6 rooms available for guests, a live-in Innkeeper/chef, some of the first use of geothermal plumbing in use in the United States (hot springs water comes out of the tap into your bathtub!), elegant historic decor, spacious public areas, gourmet communal breakfasts, and bicycle rentals for guest’s convenience. It is within walking distance to BSU, downtown and all Boise has to offer. The Green Belt is only 1/2 mile away for convenient pedestrian bicycling and walking along the Boise River and Boise’s numerous parks. History Established in 1987 The Idaho Heritage Inn was built in 1904 for one of Boise’s early merchants, Henry Falk. The Falk family owned The Mode department store downtown which still houses retail shops. The Inn remained in the Falk family until 1943, when it was purchased by then-Governor Chase A. Clark. Governor Clark enjoyed a prestigious career in public service which culminated in his appointment as a federal judge. The home was used by the Clark’s daughter, Bethine, and her husband, Senator Frank Church, as their Idaho residence during Senator Church’s 24 year tenure in the U.S. Senate. The home remained in the Clark/Church family until 1987, when it was restored as a Bed & Breakfast. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the Idaho Heritage Inn continues to welcome its guests with dignity and grace. Meet the Manager:
Thomas C. How many people can say they are lucky enough to have a job getting to know about people, sharing in their adventures, and sitting down sharing a bottle of wine? I also enjoy cooking, and sharing my local knowledge with my guests.
