Charming Cottage In The Heart Of Boise's North End

Bedrooms 2
Space 805 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 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.

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.

Great home base! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is in the heart of some of Boise's best gems. Camel's Back Park, Hyde Park and it's nestled in the charming North End, which is close to downtown and not much further to the Boise River Greenbelt. The cottage is comfortable and clean. Even though it's small, it's well laid out with a great kitchen and nice bedroom with a comfortable bed. We stayed there for a month while we shopped for a new home and it was a great place to call home for a short time. Wished we could have stayed longer, but the place was booked!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a visit to Boise, this cute, well maintained cottage is the perfect location. Camelback Park is just up the street and well worth exploring. And you can walk to the Hyde Park Historic District where you can find good food, entertainment, and a fun atmosphere. To top it off, the cottage has just about Everything you might need...including a very comfortable bed! We had a great time and will be back.

Cute North End cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this cute cottage. We had moved to Boise and needed a place to stay while we were waiting for our house to close. This place fit ours needs perfectly. We loved breakfasts on the sun porch. Although there was no yard to speeak of our dog barely noticed because it is so close to Hull's Gulch. We enjoyed the walking trails and the leash-off part was great. If we didn't have our own home here now, we would certainly stay again and we will recommend this cottage to friends. Hannah is a doll and very helpful as well.
