The Historic Harwood House in Roberts Idaho is the ideal destination location to serve as your home base as you explore the many famous sights and happenings in southeast Idaho and surrounding areas this summer. We are the closest lodging on I-15 to the center line of the eclipse (see attached map) where you can stay in a family-style setting with all the conveniences of home, and also experience the best possible eclipse totality in less than 5 minutes from your doorstep!
The Historic Harwood House provides the best of both worlds. Enjoy the intimacy of a home, with room to spread out and relax in privacy, in a 100 year old historic home full of history and charm away from the congestion of high traffic routes, crowded hotels, and traffic jams. We provide late afternoon or evening check out on the day of the eclipse, so stock up the fridge, enjoy your day, and wait out the crowds.
The bedroom community of Roberts is your prime rural lodging and eclipse viewing location, away from the city lights (during totality, automatic sensors and infrastructure systems will trigger street lights and other safety lighting, creating a "glow" effect in city centers) yet is only 16 quick freeway miles to the Idaho Falls airport and the heart of downtown Idaho Falls for shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Far enough away from overcrowded population centers to make travel convenient, you can enjoy prime viewing areas such as Market Lake WMA and the Menan Buttes in as little as 5 minutes.
