Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Stay in a piece of Boise's history! Designed and built by architect John E. Tourtellotte in 1896, this home was allegedly built for his family. Most recently it was professional offices and even a birthing center before the hosts remodeled it back into a residence. Located steps from downtown, shops, grocery, and restaurants, a car is not necessary to explore Boise's gems. The hosts have also created a seasonal beer garden on site (The Backyard), as a space for community and guests to mingle.

I am a traveler! When traveling, my favorite thing to do is bicycle touring across entire countries. Or simply enjoying a bike/run on the local trails followed by good wine/beer and snacks. I often travel with a very laid back and super well behaved Rhodesian Ridgeback named…
