About this listing
Boise is my home, but I travel frequently. My house is situated in the idyllic North End with easy access to everything you need. Calm & comfortable. Queen bed, garden, backyard, street parking, towels, linens and a full kitchen for cooking provided.
The house is an 1896 Victorian that has been remodeled in a clean, modern aesthetic combined with a collection of art by local artists. This home is quintessential Boise. I have one Queen bed upstairs and can add one Queen air mattress in the living room downstairs if need be.
Perfect location for exploring Boise and Idaho.
5 minutes to downtown Boise, Camels Back Park, Hyde Park and the Boise Co-Op. Treasure Valley YMCA and Java coffee shop for workouts and mornings.
Interaction with guests
I'm always a text away. Feel free and let me know if you'd like to try some local flavor - food, sites, music, non-profits.
The North End of Boise is remarkable for its 100+ year history combined with its proximity to downtown and untouched nature. Countless miles of trails in Camels Back for hiking and biking only a few blocks away. White water rafting down the Payette is a 45 minute drive and floating the Boise River requires nothing more than jumping in. Let me know if you'd like passes to The Springs in Idaho City...
Boise is one of the most bikeable cities in the US. Hop on a bike at the Boise Bicycle Project, sign up for the Boise bike share or grab the bus, which stops on my block, to get downtown. You can also walk - just a few blocks to restaurants and less than a mile to downtown.
Other things to note
Unfortunately, due to severe allergies, we just aren't able to allow pets in the house. So sorry!
The house is pretty minimalist with a warm, calm feel to it. Pay a little extra attention to the furniture and I will be so grateful! Please let me know if anything gets dinged or damaged.
The concrete counters in the kitchen are extremely porous. Try and avoid letting anything acidic (wine, tomatoes, juice, coffee, tea) sit on the counter, and be sure and wipe up liquids sooner rather than later. Coasters abound.
One room upstairs is private, but the bedroom and upstairs half bath are all yours.
