Stylish North End Cottage in a Prime Location

Bedrooms 1
Space 470 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

This is North End Style and Comfort in the Best Location.

This cottage is decorated in a clean and modern style with lots of art. Many of the works are local artist; Ward Hooper, Evelyne Brigeois and Toby Davis to name a few.

The cottage is stocked with everything you will need to enjoy your stay in Boise including two cruisers bikes to ride downtown. If you are traveling with another group check to see if one of our other two cottages are available.

We want to make sure you are comfortable. 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 enjoyable at the cottage.

The front porch 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 brick patio is screened from the street and surrounded by landscape. It has a BBQ and table and chairs to enjoy a meal outside on sunny days.

There are laundry facilities and a reading space in the lower level next door. There is a key in the kitchen to access this space.

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.

Whether you are new to Boise or planning a staycation in the North End the cottage is a great location from which to explore it all! Stay for a weekend and you'll know what the North End lifestyle is all about.

About Darrin and Jill Fuchs

We both moved from Southern California about 16 years ago and love it. We met in Boise and enjoy everything about the city and surrounding area. Hiking, biking, and just cruising down the green belt or to one of the many great and unique restaurants downtown.

Darrin and Jill Fuchs purchased this cottage in 2005

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 is a bright, fun place to hang out with a number of patios to enjoy in the spring and summer. Comfort is important so we have paid attention to the details to make this feel like home. People have told us they enjoy staying in a unique home that reflects the character of the area. Vanilla chain hotels are just not as much fun and few come with a kitchen and bikes!

What makes this cottage unique

Loads of charm in a great location... with the added bonus of a nice collection of paintings 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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in the cottage and have loved it both times. It is clean, quiet, comfortable and convenient to everything downtown Boise. Darrin is super to work with quick and prompt. When we over stayed by a day (due to my mix up) he was gracious and made things work. This is a great place to stay!

Charming cottage with all the amenities in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the cottage. We loved the location near downtown in this very walkable city (even with very cold temps -at least for Boise!) Darrin and Jill checked in on us to be sure we had everything we needed. I’d highly recommend them!

Cute cottage in convenient location.

Small but cozy accommodations with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Perfect for the two of us. The gem for us was the location in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance to downtown. Highly recommend!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just perfect for us!

Very comfy even with a few glitches. There was utility construction right outside the cottage but Darren was very attentive to this LOUD situation. He had a bottle of wine waiting for us. The oil heater he quickly brought over to heat the bedroom was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this property to stay at.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy bungalow with all the essentials including bikes to ride along river walk or go to the neighborhood stores. We loved taking walks in this historic neighborhood and were within walking distance of restaurants and unique shops. The owners were very attentive and I will most certainly stay here again on my next visit!
