About the property

One Bed One Bath Classic Cottage Close To Everything

The cottage is decorated in a clean modern style with lots of art. Many of the works are local artist; Bill Carman and John Killmaster to name a few. We have provided everything you will need to enjoy staying in the cottage while you visit Boise. In any hotel the bed is very important. The pillow top mattress, down duvet, and high thread count cotton linens at the cottage make for a restful nights sleep without the luxury hotel price! In the bath you will find plush, long staple cotton towels. When we travel we have always appreciated these important touches and hope they will make your stay more comfortable at the cottage.

The front patio is a great space to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Most everyone waves or says hi as they walk by. If you would like a more private outdoor space the back patio is screened from the street and surrounded by landscape. It has a BBQ and teak table and chairs. Most everything you will need is on the main floor; downstairs there are laundry facilities and a reading space. The garage is currently not available.

We love to meet guests and give them a tour of the home and any info that may make their stay better. We love talking about Boise and all there is to do, see and eat here. We are easy to get in touch with if you need anything during your stay.

About Darrin and Jill Fuchs

We moved to Boise from California about 16 years ago and love it. It is a fun city with great people and so much to do and see. We enjoy hiking in the foothills, biking to town and cruising on the Green belt.

Darrin and Jill Fuchs purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Darrin and Jill Fuchs chose North End

The North End has so much character many, many architectural styles, great old trees and it is so close to the downtown area with all the great coffee shops, restaurants, and entertainment. The cottage a bright, fun place to hang out with a number of patios to enjoy in the spring and summer.

What makes this cottage unique

Loads of charm in a great location... with the added bonus of a nice collection of paintings many of which are by local artists. Beauty inside and out.. it's a good thing. This is an old fashioned grid neighborhood with huge trees. It's fun to just walk around and take in the views. Vintage homes, parks and close enough to everything that you can park your car and walk to it all. You will not be disappointed in the dining offerings in downtown Boise. When was the last time you went to a show, had dinner at a great restaurant and then walked home at the end of the evening? Welcome to the North End lifestyle.

We appreciate the little touches like Egyptian cotton towels and quality high thread count sheets when we travel so we have included these things at the cottage for our guests.

Best Boise Stay Yet!

  • 5 of 5

For the last year we have been looking for the perfect place to stay each time we visit our daughter and grandkids. We found it! Darrin and Jill’s North End home is perfect; quiet neighborhood close to downtown, North End, Hyde Park and only 10 minutes to our daughters! Very clean, comfy bed (great sheets on the bed!), patio, bikes and even a shared laundry room. Love the original art work throughout the house. We have already booked several days in August. Thanks Darrin and Jill!

Comfy cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at this comfy cozy cottage in the beautiful historic Hyde Park District located near downtown Boise. The cottage was equipped with everything you would need, including bikes :) ,to make your stay complete. The entire process was so easy to do. From start to finish the owners were quick to respond if we had any questions. We highly would recommend this beautiful cottage for your next adventure.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well-appointed, nicely decorated, great location, surprisingly quiet, everything most places don't include provided for you. One queen bed, water clarity and taste, heating system, appliances, lighting were all beyond expectations. Was too cold mid-December 2017 to use owner's fine quality bikes and helmets. Sweet that Jill and Darrin let us know when unit was ready for early check-in. Only suggestion is that when it comes time to purchase a new mattress, consider opting for king-size set. We ate most meals in town so lack of dishwasher didn't bother us a bit. A DVD remote would be appreciated so that hearing challenged older folks could read subtitles. Lovely outdoor plants in planters were a nice touch. Beautifully decorated dining room with extra closet very nice! Huge washing machine and dryer were a treat.
