Health & Safety




Per CDC guidance, if you are fully vaccinated, facial coverings and physically distancing are no longer required in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors. If you are not fully vaccinated, we ask that you please continue to wear your mask and physically distance yourself.

The wellbeing of our team members and guests is of paramount importance for us here at Knob Hill Inn. In light of COVID-19, we have upped our sanitation standards even further. And we’ve never been more thankful for our exterior spaces and open-air patios across our property that open directly to Sun Valley’s fresh air. One thing that hasn’t changed is our dedication to making sure your stay with us is an exceptional experience and makes you feel at home at our charming Sun Valley inn. Visit Sun Valley has also launched Mindfulness in the Mountains as a commitment to protecting residents, visitors, and places we love.

Through our management company, Columbia Hospitality, we’ve partnered with Ecolab, a global leader in infection prevention, to take our already stringent safety and sanitation protocols to the next level through the Columbia Clean program.
