We are a family of four living in this very large house. We have several bedrooms available to travelers & folks visiting our fair city. We operate short term bedroom rentals in the vein of a true B&B; expect to share common areas with our family, friends, and perhaps another traveler or two. Longer term renters become housemates; laundering their linens as needed and supplying their own groceries. Elisabeth & I both come from families of six; open and direct communication is a requirement in big families and in shared living spaces. If there is something you require let us know and we will do what we can to provide it. All guests are treated generously & with respect. We ask the same in return.
We are gracious hosts and enjoy sharing our favorite restaurants and local adventures with new friends. You'll find local chocolates on your pillow when you arrive, as well as maps and a copy of the most recent Boise Weekly. We are tea drinkers and the Roosevelt Market is just two blocks away and ready to serve coffee beginning at 7am.
This Grand San Francisco style home is perfectly located in the Warm Springs neighborhood. Until recently the home of Bethine Church, the venerable widow of renowned Idaho Statesman Frank Church. Many national and international dignitaries have enjoyed evenings in this gracious living room and taken meals in the formal dining room. Mrs. Church says that the house has a wonderful spirit and that everyone who has ever entered it has had a great deal of fun there.
A brief walk from the State Capital, downtown restaurants & bars, the Boise River Greenbelt, and trail access at Military Reserve Park. With all of these wonderful destinations less than a mile from home, this is a location that cannot be beat in Boise.

We enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to Boise. We have plenty of experience in doing that; in a typical month we have visitors for 15+ days. We will happily provide tips for dining, entertainment, or outdoor adventure. We also completely respect the need for privacy and solitude; there is ample space to check out with a book or your thoughts.
We enjoy large family meals at home, and get out to restaurants and performances weekly--we are pretty tied into the arts community. Kayaking, biking, hiking, and coffee shop lounging are all in a days work for us.
