Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: "The way you do one thing is the way you do everything." I take special pride in the details of Boise Guest House's suites. I love people and learning about their reasons for coming Boise, Idaho. I've created a North End experience for you, complete with bikes to rent and explore the downtown area. I have lived here for 17 years, and have three great locations and 11 vacation rental suites in downtown Boise. My philosophy for hosting is more "hands-off" by design from experiences that I have had in the hospitality industry, so please feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to meet while staying with us. My intention is that your visit to Boise is about you, and your interests. When I'm not working, I enjoy the mountains: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, camping. I cannot go a day in the summer without jumping in the nearby Idaho waters: swimming , surfing and wakeboarding are some of my favorite summer activities. Ask me and I may reveal my favorite watering holes. I enjoy Ashtanga yoga, TM meditation and Ayurvedic cooking. I love to travel to metropolitan areas as well as remote mountain wilderness. In my previous life I was a full time artist. I enjoy music, art and independent movies. I was lucky to go the the Venice Biennale in 2013 and Amsterdam to look at artist residencies for a model to bring to Boise. I have been to Burning Man five times now. I keep going back because it fills me up with ideas about temporary living spaces and the sense of community and a playfulness towards everyday life. Aside from that I am a soccer mom and we have a dog named Izzy (hypoallergenic) and two guinea pigs. We are living the North End dream. Enjoy your day! Thanks for visiting the Boise Guest House suites! I hope you will stay with us!

Why the Owner Chose Downtown, Boise, ID, USA:
My family purchased this historic gem of a property in 2008 and we completely remodeled the interior. It's a 120 year old Queen Anne Victorian on the outside, but contemporary on the inside with unique appointments and thoughtful use of space. We put so much love and attention into the feeling of this building. I love architecture , design and creating spaces for others to enjoy. Each suite has a private bathroom and kitchen. Instead of a classic bed and breakfast, you have your personal space with the option to enjoy the shared backyard during the nice weather. The backyard offers a quiet refuge with a barbecue, fountain and a beautiful garden to escape the city life.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Our location is ideal for everyone desiring a downtown experience. We now have eight rental bikes available to explore the area to our guests. We suggest visiting the farmer's market on Saturdays, Camel's Back Park in Hyde Park or strolling down the Greenbelt river trail. If you are a runner, mountain biker or hiker, you may enjoy the nearby Ridges to Rivers trail system in the foothills. Boise Guest House is within blocks of our local coffee shops, shops and restaurants in BoDo (Boise Downtown district). The Boise Co-op, a gourmet grocery store only 3 blocks away. We are very close to three hospitals, the US Federal Building and the Legislative Offices (and renovating State Capital) so business travelers enjoy our proximity as well.
