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, ID - Boise / Garden Valley Office

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.

Gem Cottage by the depot

  • 5 of 5

An absolute Gem of a cottage, could nt have had a better stay. The place felt like home away from home as soon as you walked through the door. Its a very cosy home with everything there that you would need. We would have loved to have stayed longer and will certainly remember this cottage for next time, can't recommend it highly enough. It's a perfect getaway for two people whatever the occasion and is handy to everywhere.

Parking can be an issue. Property in front tends to take over.

Owner's Response: We're sorry the guests staying in the other house on the property parked in the dedicated parking spot for this rental, we've updated the directions for the other rental to make it clear where they are allowed to park.

Small house close to downtown

  • 4 of 5

Small house worked fine for a couple. Good location but needed short drive to access greenbelt, downtown and campus.

Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really cute. Very clean and had what I needed. Was thankful for extra blankets as it was getting a little chilly at night. Debbie and the local staff are great!
