I am the grandson of the original owner of this property. My grandpa built this with the purpose to be comfortable and to entertain. Please enjoy our home and have a great time while you are in Idaho Falls.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great house! It was built in the 30's by Alex's grandfather. I loved the character of the home. Even though we got in kind of late Alex met us at the house and showed us around. He was also available by phone if we needed anything- we didn't though. Very large house and we loved it! We also left one of our bags and he is mailing it to us!

Like a visit to Grandma's house

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this clean, comfortable property. It really felt like you could just make yourself at home. There was plenty of room for our family. The grown children enjoyed ping pong and pool in the basement family room; our grandchildren loved the teeter-totter out back, and making snow angels in the back yard. The hosts even made sure that we had a pack-n-play for our youngest granddaughter. They had a Christmas tree set up for us, videos and access to Netflix, etc., and wi-fi access so that our daughter could work one of the days we were there.

It was easy to find and use. It is on a busy street, but there is room for playing and gathering in the backyard, with a picnic table and a grill if you are visiting in the warmer parts of the year. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and serving meals. We would like to have stayed longer.

Nice place at a great value

  • 4 of 5

We chose this house for the size, the price, and because it is pet friendly. There were a few things that needed to be taken care of (dishwasher doesn't work, TV is older pretty dim, etc), but nothing that caused us to contact Alex while we were there, and nothing that would keep us from coming back. We've picked houses in other cities that were meant to be a central part of our vacation, and in those, we looked for amenities and a kind of wow factor with our kids. This house is definitely not that, but if you are looking for a place to put a bunch of bodies, maybe a dog or two, and have a bit of an adventure in an older home, this is a great place at a great price.
