Unfortunately the beer garden was closed in the back of property. Also, we were located on a pretty busy street so late at night and early morning was a bit noisy. Work around those two issues and the place is really nice. Comfortable bed and access to full kitchen and living rooms.

Unique historical house with quaint rooms, a wonderful kitchen, two living areas, and a fun beer garden nestled im a beautiful neighborhood. A grocery store and delicious restaurants are within a few blocks and downtown is within walking distance. The owners and employees are frequently on site and all are very friendly and helpful. We stayed our first two days in Boise and returned for two more days when we returned to the city before flying home. We had a fabulous time!

The most desirable feature of this property was its location: close to downtown, close to Hyde Park, desirable North End neighborhood, proximity to family members. However, we found it to be quite noisy. The Beer Garden created a noisy experience well into the night on Friday; Saturday night less so. Also, the property is located on a very busy street so there was a great deal of street noise.
