                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2002

                              About the owner: Hello! I fell in love with the Pink House the moment I saw it in 2002...it has such inviting and happy energy! I live and work in this lovely place as a Certified Mediator, Reiki Master and Heart Centered Therapy practitioner. I have two grown independent bright curious bi-lingual daughters who I adore...one is an organic gardener, anthropologist and teacher at a local college here in the valley and the other practices law and enjoys long distance running in Atlanta! I love meeting all our interesting global guests! I am an avid hiker and world traveler and enjoy old architecture and unique cultures/people from around the globe. Like you, when traveling, I am drawn to staying in small guest houses, B&Bs, hostels, small furnished apartments ... and tents! I still plan to stay on a sailboat and in a tree house soon :). The Boise area is my home base and I am happy to share info on hiking and biking trails, favorite restaurants, small ghost towns, favorite outdoor music venues, local wineries. I also have an A-Frame cabin (aka my art project!) in McCall and am happy to also share with you! In 2011 I adopted then 8 yr old Gus, a friendly social Rottie, who is now my hiking buddy and official Pink House welcomer! Gus and I look forward to meeting you soon! ~Sherry

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              I love our big shade trees, fruit trees, ivy on the house, blackberries, mint, salsa garden and squirrels even though they beat me to the cherries every year! All the sitting areas around the yard. Hosting Pink House potlucks during nice weather. Walking to Saturday Market, Downtown shopping, restaurants, coffee houses, Boise Co-op, YMCA, Theaters...all within 3 to 6 blocks :) ...and of course hiking and riding the foothill trails as well as biking the Greenbelt! I am Blessed!
