Whether you're staying for a few days or a few weeks, you will love the inviting, comfortable feel of this lovely home-away-from-home.
WHY CHOOSE 'BOISE'S GEM'?
You won't find a better value! The great location, wonderful yard, lovely furnishings, open floor plan, full amenities, low rates, and consistently outstanding guest reviews all combine to make us the best choice.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a dead-end street, 'Boise's Gem' is just a couple of blocks from a small shopping center and several neighborhood restaurants and watering holes, as well as a park and public swimming pool. Boise State University is just a mile away and Downtown just half a mile further, so it's possible to bike to all of Boise's great city-center attractions (several museums, premier parks, the zoo, dozens of restaurants, great nightlife, shopping, farmer's markets, live theatre, entertainment venues, and more). The Greenbelt along the Boise River is within a mile of the house, giving access to many miles of wonderful walking and biking paths.
ENJOY LIFE UNDER THE TREES
It isn't just the location that makes this place special. It's also the tranquil, shady, and private back yard with a large grassy area and cozy patio accessible from both the kitchen and den. What a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine and listen to the birds -- or grill a meal and dine alfresco!
'LIVING LARGE' DOESN'T REQUIRE A MANSION
Inside, the spacious living room features a huge bank of south-facing windows for lots of natural light. The open floor plan flows into a dining room with a large table that seats seven, and into a roomy kitchen with a smaller table for more intimate, informal dining. The master bedroom contains a King bed and the second bedroom has a Queen, both with extremely comfortable pillow-top mattresses. These bedrooms share a bathroom with a tub and shower. Another (half) bathroom is convenient to the den and kitchen. The den faces the patio and back yard and features a comfortable sofa, a flat-screen television, a DVD player and movie library, and a convenient desk with keyboard for your laptop. The den is also a fully-functional third bedroom because the sofa coverts to a Queen-size bed and there is a small dresser and an armoire for clothing. Everything is on one level and accessible to most physically-challenged individuals.TripAdvisor property ID 2284800...Read more

Additional Location Information
Our home is in the 'Depot Bench' neighborhood, which gets its name from the beautiful, historic (and now decommissioned) Boise Train Depot. It's a safe, tree-shaded neighborhood just at the edge of Downtown and very close to BSU. A short path from our dead-end street leads to the Vista Avenue commercial district, which has a wide variety of shops, services, restaurants, and watering holes with local flavor.

Our extended family stayed at the property for several days in September. It was a great place for kids, wonderful location with easy access to everything in Boise, and an excellent value. Everything was clean and comfortable. Thank you...we'll be back!
