Trees are powerful. They soften the edges of a place like a well-placed linen or a fluffy pillow. Boise is full of trees. In fact, it's called the "City of Trees," and this lovely, two bedroom condo in south Boise is an example of the power of green. Nestled on a tree-lined street (just six minutes from the airport), this condo combines the quiet of a residential neighborhood with quick access to major roads, hiking and biking trails, parks, and shopping and dining in the city's center. Whether you're in Boise for fun or business, this condo is the perfect alternative to a hotel.
Winters in Boise are mild, a fact that comes from its high-desert location. But on those occasionally chilly nights, you'll be ready. Throw a log on the fire, make some coffee or cocoa, and grab a spot on the big couch or comfy chair before your favorite show comes on the big, flat screen TV. Or, boot up your laptop with the free WIFI. On those hot summer days you'll be comfortable as well. Just flip on the condo's central air, pour a cool one, and relax! Or, enjoy your drink out one of the patios in the front or back. There are also plenty of books and games for your enjoyment. Don't forget to take the dog for a walk - this home is dog-friendly, though a small nightly fee - and fee per dog - will apply.
Lakewood Condo has two bedrooms,one with a queen bed, the other with a full. Waiting for the bathroom won't be an issue, as each has its own attached full bath. One of the bedrooms has a comfortable chair where you can settle in with that novel before bedding down. The other has access to the rear patio through sliding glass doors so you can sneak out the back before breakfast for a breath of fresh air.
There's no shortage of restaurants around Boise (443 to be exact), so dining out won't be a problem. If you're staying in, you're covered too. Lakewood Condo has a modern, fully stocked kitchen and appliances that include a microwave for quick snacks and the ever-important dishwasher for quick clean-ups. The dining area, with room for four, is set apart and tastefully decorated. Weather permitting, there are tables on both the front and rear patios so you can enjoy your meal out among Boise's trees.
Though this condo is located near the southern edge of the city, you'll be just minutes away from historic areas like the trendy "Linen District" or "BoDo District" that are filled with shops and restaurants. In addition to its zoo and art museum, Boise is also home to the Idaho State Historical Museum and Boise State University. Boise Greenbelt, with its 25 miles of scenic paths where you can hike, bike, or jog, is less than two miles away. Since Boise is nestled at the base of the Rockies, it's a doorway to all the great fishing, hiking, biking, and kayaking you'd expect to find there. Golfers can try their luck at nearby Warm Springs Golf Course.
Whether you're in the city for the first time or making a return visit, this quiet, lovely condo is the perfect place to stay while you're in Boise!
