Charming Cottage In The Heart Of Boise's North End

Bedrooms 2
Space 805 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bed, 1 Bath, Blocks From The Heart Of Hyde Park. Walk To Restaurants & Pubs.

Ideally located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood of Boise's North End, this charming cottage is blocks from the outdoor trails of Camel's Back Park and a short walk to the restaurants, pubs and shops of Hyde Park's 13th Street downtown, and convenient to downtown Boise, the State Capitol, the Greenbelt, and Boise State University.

Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, our home is a vintage 1912 cottage with the modern amenities you expect: Central air-conditioning, LCD TV, DVD player, CD player, microwave, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator with ice-maker, 4-burner electric oven, and coffee maker. The bath features a classic claw-footed tub with a shower and each bedroom has a ceiling fan for those who prefer to open a window and enjoy the fresh air of the high desert nights that cool Boise when the sun goes down. For a quiet evening at home enjoy playing cards, Monopoly, Scrabble, or even Rock 'Em. Sock 'Em Robots; listen to classic rock CDs, or pop a movie in the DVD player. The small back deck and yard have chairs and tables for you to enjoy your morning coffee, or evening drink.

Located in the attached shed are a couple of bicycles for an easy ride to downtown, or a more challenging exploration of the foothill trails of Camel's Back Park and the surrounding foothills.

Cozy and comfortable, Hyde Park Cottage is the perfect place to stay whether you are visiting Boise for vacation, a BSU Broncos football game, work, or business in Idaho's state capitol.

About Thom George

Originally from 'back east' we moved to Idaho in 2001. After the children went off to college we relocated, first to Seattle then to Shanghai, China and then back again to Seattle. Eventually, we plan on retiring to this house in Boise.

Thom George purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Thom George chose Boise

The arrival of our first grandchild has motivated us to spend more time here in Boise. Having a home here so we can see our grandchild is important to us, sharing it with others while we're away, is the best of both worlds.

What makes this cottage unique

The warmth of the butternut walls and the dark wood floors, the quaintness of the enclosed porches and the ability to walk to dinner made this home, in this location, the perfect fit for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi! My family and I stayed at the cottage for an entire month. We biked, walked and dined at most of the nearby places. We enjoyed your garden...fresh veggies!! Hard to beat, lovely place to stay.

Beautiful weekend in Boise

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable cottage. We especially loved sitting on the front porch and having coffee in the morning. The location of the cottage only two blocks from Camelback Park really added to our enjoyment.

Very close to lots of great areas in Hyde Park. Everything about the process was simple and the house exceeded my expectations. I hope to return soon.

Like a local one Hyde Park!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage, instantly felt at home with everything one could need for a great time in Boise. Walking distance to Camelback, Hyde Park restaurants and downtown. Bike a long the greenway, hike in Camelsback and drink a few good beers. You will have a great time!

Charming Cottage in the heart of Boise-perfect description.

  • 5 of 5

Not just charming, but also spotlessly clean. Items arranged so they could be easily found. The location in Hyde Park made it even better.
