The future of the historic Enaville Resort in Idaho, also known as the Snake Pit, is uncertain now that owners Joe and Mary Peak are both battling cancer.

Visitors to the famed tavern and eatery found this message on a whiteboard under the word “CLOSED” printed in capital letters Friday: “Due to ongoing medical issues we will be closed for some projects. It has been our sincere pleasure to serve you since 1978 – 2 days closed each year! Stay in touch … Rose Mary & Joe need your support.”
