This beautiful, backyard cottage is located in Boise's North End. Camel's Back Park and miles of trails are just out the back gate and a short walk brings you to the Boise Co-op and wine shop or Hyde Park's restaurants, coffee and shops. I provide 2 bikes for guest use as so much of Boise is accessible by bike.

Due to Covid 19, my minimum stay is 1 week.

It may be possible to bring your dog to the cottage. Please read the "other things to note" section for details.

The space
COVID-19 update:
I want to let guests know how we are handling the Covid issue at the cottage.
We are blocking out 24 hours between guest stays to allow the virus to die off on the majority of surfaces before anyone has to enter the space. After 24 hours, we are thoroughly disinfecting all surfaces, including fabrics and the floor, following the Airbnb list of cleaning practices. We do ask that guests hang up their towels and take the trash out to the bin behind the cottage, so we can stay out of the cottage for the 48 hour time period. The cottage is self check in, so there is no contact with us required for your stay.

The cottage is beautifully appointed with an organic wool and cotton bed, memory foam topper, high thread count, Egyptian cotton bed linens and big, soft towels. Silk and linen curtains add a luxurious feel. The bathroom, now a separate room with barn door and floor to ceiling walls for privacy, has a full shower with marble tile and a slate floor. Shower gel, shampoo and conditioner are provided. Hot water is from an "on demand" water heater, so you never run out. There are heaters in the main room and bathroom for winter time and I put in a small air conditioner for summer. There is a ceiling fan to help keep you comfortable all year. A Jambox speaker lets you settle in with music from your device or computer. The water is all filtered through an expensive, full house system, so it tastes great, has no chlorine and lets us all reduce the plastic bottles on the planet.

I have a boisterous, mature garden that feels like an oasis much of the year, if you'd like to sit outside at the little bistro table for your morning coffee. You are welcome to use herbs from the garden for cooking. They are tucked in with the decorative plants, so just let me know if you'd like to pick something and I'll show you where they all are.

There is one sink in the cottage, big enough for doing dishes, that also serves for personal use. I have had some guests suggest a second sink for the bathroom, but the space is too small to accommodate one comfortably. The vast majority of people have been perfectly comfortable, but I like to be clear in the event anyone might have qualms about the dual use.

There is a small, comfortable couch for relaxing. For eating and working, there is a bar counter with two stools. I have the fastest wifi available, so it won't slow you down, if you are in Boise for work.

The kitchen area has an induction hot plate that is very efficient and safe, pots and pans, colander, grater, peeler, a full complement of quality flatware and cooking utensils. I provide salt and pepper and olive oil as well as enough tea and coffee with sugar and honey to start your morning off well. I don't provide cream or milk as everyone's tastes differ and I didn't like to waste it when people didn't use it. Grab some on your way by the co-op when you come up to the cottage! The Boise co-op is nearby for basic, organic and gourmet provisions, if you'd like to prepare your own meals. The co-op has an excellent wine shop as well. There are several restaurants and excellent coffee shops a few blocks away in Hyde Park, if you'd rather let someone else tend to your food needs during your stay.

We have a cat named Gracie, who is not allowed in the cottage. She's pretty shy, but feel free to pet or play with her when she's out and about. We also have a puppy who may be in the back yard sometimes. My chickens are on the other side of the main house. Every once in awhile, I allow them to run around the garden, but I'll make sure guests are comfortable with them before doing so on a given day.

Where you’ll be

Boise, Idaho, United States

The North End in Boise is a special place. Loads of mature trees keep things cool and shady in summer. Camel's Back Park is fun for people watching, frisbee or climb to the top for a little exercise and a sunset. The trails system behind Camel's Back is extensive and can accommodate any skill or fitness level on foot or mountain bike. For road cyclists, the North End is an ideal place to start with lots of options for long, peaceful rides into the hills or farmlands that surround town.

A few blocks away is Hyde Park. There are several restaurants, a great coffee shop, antique and other shops as well as Goodies for an after dinner ice cream.

The Boise Co-op is just down the street with an awesome selection of gourmet deli foods and desserts, organic produce and all the staples. Their wine shop, across the street from the co-op has a selection that will please even the most discerning palate. Cafe Vicino is located in the same parking area and is one of the best restaurants in town.

Downtown Boise is 3/4 of a mile away and has something for everyone. An independent movie theatre as well as a big one for blockbusters, music venues, food, shopping and a coffee shop on nearly every corner. Our Boise Contemporary Theatre is nationally recognized and hosts plays, readings, dance and a number of independent productions.

Just outside of town you can see the Idaho Shakespeare Festival in summer,
visit the Idaho Botanical Gardens, walk or ride on the greenbelt along the Boise River or float the river in summer. There are trailheads all over town for access to the foothills and Tablerock always offers a great view.

I am living in Boise, ID with my daughter. I'm excited to have found Airbnb as hotel rooms are not very convenient with a little one in tow and they are so impersonal. It will be really fun to see the cities we visit from a more homey space. And being able to cook for ourselves will make all the difference! I have a small cottage on my property that I've begun to rent out on AirBnB. I love meeting people from other places and sharing my space and city with them. I do everything I can to make people feel comfortable and at home!
