About This Listing
Welcome to the Story Suite. Inspired by local Idaho Storytellers, there are artistic details throughout. Warm colors, 10 feet ceilings, private kitchen and gorgeous new bathroom, hardwood floors, queen bed. Dogs are allowed for an additional fee.
Come stay at the Animal Trophy Suite located in the Boise Guest House. My daughter and I welcome you to our family-owned and operated European-style guest house.
My completely restored 1895 Queen Anne Victorian has six unique suites. Each room has a private bathroom, full kitchen, comfy queen beds and unique decor. This ground level suite has a private entrance with bistro tables on the front porch. It is to the right of the front door. It is on the southwest side of the house. Great for a couple.
The Boise Guest House has a garden, barbecue, shared outside tables. You will have your own kitchen, bathroom and access to the laundry room. Everyone has their own suite, so nothing is specifically shared except the common space.
Interaction with Guests
I would love to meet you! I have designed the Boise Guest House around the idea that you want your space when you travel. Ashley and Hannah are onsite cleaning suites from 11am-3pm to bring you anything you would like. My experience traveling & working for ten years is that it's exhausting... and the last thing you need is the owner present. I'm just a phone call away!
The Boise Guest House is located in a quiet downtown/ North End location, near the historic district of little old Boise on a government block. We have a few neighbors, but mostly it's a daytime office can walk everywhere, or rent our cool bikes to the farmer's market or the park. We are only 4 miles from the airport, so a taxi is inexpensive. We're also 2 blocks from the Boise Co-op, so you can buy groceries and prepare your own meals.
Bikes! Boise is so bike friendly. We have four cruisers with racks and baskets for you to rent. It's only $10/day.
Other Things to Note
Dogs are welcome in some of our rooms (sorry, not the Animal room, ironically) for an extra $25 per dog. We are family-friendly and provide toys and high chairs., and pak n plays. Extra aerobeds are $25/stay.
Please treat our home as your own! There is absolutely no smoking on the premises. Pets (dogs) are permitted with prior approval in some suites, but this must be approved by the owner in advance. Other guests have extreme allergies to both smoke and pets, so we have a strict policy in our suites. Failure to adhere to our policy will result in the loss of the security deposit as well as an additional cost of $100 on your credit card.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
The Story Suite has 10 ft ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors and access to the front porch with bistro table and chairs. Each suite has original artwork by local artists. The curtains are the closet; working with an 1895 historic building, we have had to
The Boise guesthouse was easy to find, and the self check-in went smoothly. The room was very comfy, and very nicely decorated! (Not the usual chintz /rickracky stuff!). Location was great- right downtown, easy to walk to cafes, etc. I really enjoyed my stay there, and
Eve-Marie was very charming and warm when I did meet her. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a charming alternative to chain hotels!
The Boise Guest House is very conveniently located. The rooms are small but well arranged, with everything you need and a very comfortable bed. I booked the Story Suite but ended up in the Animal Trophy Suite, which was a bit disappointing because the shower in that space is much smaller than the one in the photos of the Story Suite (there's just enough room to turn around).
Thank you for this review. I apologize about staying in the Animal Trophy Suite. In March we just started offering individual suites that guests can book. We previously just had one overall listing for six suites, and I tried to just work with the room types available. I didn't realize I had promised a specific suite. Yes, the shower is a little small... I appreciate your honesty. I wasn't aware you had a specific suite request, and I'm sorry. Moving forward our Airbnb guests can select which suite they would like now that I have a way to manage all nine suites!
Thanks again for staying with us.
The Boise Guest House is so gosh darn adorable. I loved EVERYTHING about our room. It was nicely decorated, close to everything we needed, clean, full of amenities and included parking. Communicating with Eve-Marie was a breeze. Would highly recommend this listing.
The Boise Guest house provided an exceptional stay! The location could not have been better as it is very accessible to the downtown area. The parking available on-site was very convenient. My suite was clean and cozy, providing all the comforts of home. The brownie bites in the entry was a wonderful touch!
Bonjour, j écris en français car Google sait traduire...
Cette maison qui est partagé en plusieurs studio est une véritable surprise dans Boise. L esprit du détail a été travaillé avec goût. Pour mes déplacements professionnels, je pense renouveler cette merveilleuse expérience : on est en vacance dans cette maison au cœur du centre-ville
Charm. Clean. Convenient. Eve-Marie's place was all of these.
I was visiting Boise for a business conference, and was looking for something a little less "sterile" than the downtown hotel rooms. I was not disappointed.
I guess the best part of staying there was unwinding after stressful meetings all day. I don't know what it was exactly, but the stress melted away as soon as I entered the room.
Cozy. That's the word I'm looking for.
I you want a sterile, modern place to stay, this isn't it.
But if you want to feel like you're back home, wrapped in a warm blanket of warm and cozy, with a completely outfitted kitchen area, then don't hesitate to stay there. Even the WiFi was fast. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Eve-Marie accidentally accepted my reservation request. That said it was a last minute request and I was traveling with my dog. She was quick to reply and nicely explained there was availability but none of the spaces left allowed dogs. I will try to reserve with her again next time I'm going through Boise!
