Friendly and outgoing! Also a nature lover who's a little earthy & quirky. A city girl growing some farm girl roots and loving it!
We spent two nights at Sturialehouse with Rita and Jim. We immediately felt welcome and at home in Rita's beautifully decorated craftsman style home, complete with rich wood and fine architectural detail. One could spend hours, maybe days perusing through her collections. Which I plan to do on our next visit. Our room was very comfortable with lots of room to spread out. The breakfast Rita laid out for us was beautifully prepared and delicious. She is truly "The Gourmet Cook".
The neighborhood is centrally located to the university and the capital as well as downtown Boise. We were only minutes away from everything we wanted to do.
Suellen and I would highly recommend a stay at Sturialehouse Bed & Breakfast Home. We'll be back.
Staying at Rita's lovely historic home was a wonderful experience through and through. Her kindness and hospitality made us feel so welcome. The room was cozy and comfortable. We slept so well. And the breakfast the next morning was beyond compare. Overall, amazing experience!
This downtown Bed and Breakfast is walking distance to all the fun stuff~ parks, restaurants, shops and interesting sites like the Capitol ( i was surprised by how awesome it is!)
Rita and Jim are just great and made us feel like family. The authenticity and beauty of this vintage home, and Ann's lovely presentation of everything is delightful. Even if you have no children, you must see the secret little play closet...you will wish you were little again! Can't wait to come back!
A comfy room, cool antiques and art, a great host and delicious breakfast. It's hard to complain! Thanks Rita!
We found many beautiful treasures in the Sturialehouse--Rita has unbelievable taste in just about everything that is antique and the home reflects it. We missed spending much time with Rita, but Jim made up with super hospitality, great french toast (home baked bread and fresh eggs from their own chickens!) and a cooler that was a life saver. Both Rita and Jim are wonderful folks and we would love to spend lots of time with them--perhaps on our next visit. Very highly recommended.
Rita is friendly, flexible, considerate and talented. She replied to my request immediately, accommodated our late-night arrival with grace, cooked us an incredible gluten-free and breakfast from scratch, and was friendly without being overwhelming. You can't ask for a better host. Rita's spotless home is a marvel, filled with more interesting collections, items, and treasures than I've ever seen. A treat for those who love vintage decor and items with tales to tell, but perhaps not the place for big folks and/or those who enjoy sleek surfaces and minimalist rooms. -- I'm sorry we didn't stay long enough to take advantage of Rita's considerable knowledge of the area. -- Great location, too. -- Thank you, Rita!
My daughter & I were so happy with our stay at Rita's! Rita is very warm and friendly. She went the extra mile to assure that our stay was comfortable. My daughter had some special dietary needs & Rita was very accommodating and provided breakfasts which were very yummy! Her home is absolutely lovely, and Malachi (her dog) is quite the charmer! Thank you Rita for your sweet hospitality!

My husband and I had a great experience at Sturialehouse! Rita was a wonderful host and her house is in a great location. We loved staying in this historical home with so much charm. I enjoyed taking a bath in the claw-foot tub after a long day of traveling. We were able to walk to downtown Boise and enjoyed 2 great restaurants that our hosts recommended! If that's not enough, Rita is an excellent cook, and provided us with a gourmet breakfast featuring farm-fresh eggs from her well cared for chickens! We loved every minute of this visit and wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Rita!
What a nice place to stay. The environment and the host are outstanding. We simply enjoyed ourselves and know we have found new friends. We will return every time we come to Boise.
What a lovely experience at Sturialehouse B & B. The hosts pampered us from the moment they greeted us and took our luggage directly to our room. The home is beautifully decorated, clean and comfy. Our hosts are the kind of people we would like to have as our friends. T
