About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 2

This comfortable and modernly designed one-bedroom Boise cottage offers up to two guests a great home base when staying in the City of Trees. Filled with comfortable furniture, a full kitchen, and with amenities like a TV, Blu-ray player, and a private washer/dryer, you'll feel right at home here.

This great location by the historic Boise Depot offers an easy walk to the Boise State University campus or even downtown. Set on a quiet, dead-end street, this charming cottage is a lovely and serene oasis in fun-filled Boise.

Neutral colors welcome you inside to the living and dining room, complete with a small gas fireplace for keeping the space all cozy. Enjoy a movie while you relax on the sofa or sit down to a meal at the stylish glass dining table. All the windows have blinds, which are great for keeping the space dark during a movie marathon. WiFi is included so you can stay connected!

A full kitchen has all major appliances (minus a dishwasher), with a stacked washer and dryer right there. Make a stew for dinner and do a load of laundry if you run out of socks!

At night, one bedroom offers a king-size bed and the maximum occupancy is two. The bathroom offers an eco-friendly toilet/sink combination and outside you'll have a gas grill and a fenced backyard.

During your stay, explore Boise's museums, eateries, trails, and nearby mountains! Jog along the 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt or in winter, make the 20-mile trip to Bogus Basin for skiing.

Whether you're attending an event on the BSU campus or just getting away for a long and relaxing weekend, this Boise Gem Cottage by the Depot is a real treat!

About Vacasa of Boise and Garden Valley

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great location close to downtown. Super cozy, quite and clean.

This was my first time at a vacation rental and I will NEVER stay at a hotel again.

Great, small little cottage to stay in.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great! Only thing I would suggest is bigger pillows for the king size bed and something to help make it cooler in the home. We had the ac unit and the fan running and was still hot.

Convenient and Clean

  • 3 of 5

This little cottage in Boise was clean, quiet, and affordable.

It is equipped with a washer and coffee pot, though neither detergent nor coffee were provided.

The bathroom set-up is cramped, with no countertops for your supplies, and likely the funkiest toilet you'll ever have the pleasure of sitting upon. The wash basin is the top of the toilet tank.To flush and to fill the tank, you've got to run the basin faucet. It works, and its sort of ingenious as a small space sink/toilet, but its funky.

I'd stay here again.

Very nice little place - just a few things...

  • 3 of 5

This was a great place for us to stay. A few nights it was cold, and the heater worked well. A couple days it was hot, and the a/c did the job. Kitchen, bedding, towels, and floors were clean. Washer/dryer combo worked very well.

There were a couple of things: 1. The toilet/sink combo was kind of wierd. I prefer to wash my hands with hot water and you couldn't do that. I suggest you take out the wall behind the toilet (it's a closet now), move the toilet back a few feet, and put in a pedestal sink, small shelf and a power outlet. There was no place to plug in a shaver or blow dryer.

2. We couldn't use the cover you put on the couch - it kept sliding off.

Other than those two things, we really enjoyed our stay.

Cozy cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great, cozy little cottage perfect for exploring Boise for the weekend. It has everything you cooking dinner and cuddling up to a nice movie during a rain storm. The bathroom is definitely tiny and you can't use the sink independent of flushing the toilet, but with only 2 people it was fine. Overall, I would definitely stay here again!
