About The Owner

I manage my husbands business. We enjoy traveling with our two children. We fell in love with the Boise area when we went to visit close friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Idaho

We love the natural beauty of the Boise area, especially the crisp mountain air. Also we can visit our close friends several times a year.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a secluded mountain retreat while still being close to great restaurants and other cultural activities in Boise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

" Thank you so much for sharing this lovely home! This is our first trip to Idaho and I definitely want to see more. Your house is hard to describe. It just seems to be a part of the hillside. The morning light makes the inside glow. The deck is too good to be true! We spent many hours looking at the view. Thank you for sharing it."

The property was absolutely wonderful. There is nothing like having a cup of coffee inside the warm and cozy cabin and looking out over the snow-capped mountains. The cabin's location also allowed us to remain out in nature, but not be so far for quick trips back into Boise. While we didn't see any elk (we certainly searched), there were plenty of deer, grouse, turkeys and snow to look out at and a whole host of walking trails to help work off the holiday food!

Would definitely stay again!
