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.
