My husband and I stayed in the Boise Guest House on our way from Seattle to Cheyenne and we were beyond pleasantly surprised by how quaint and beautiful the house was! We loved our room, it was cute, comfortable and had everything that we needed. I loved all the little touches that made the guest house unique and welcoming. We... More

You cannot beat the location as far as central Boise is concerned. We stayed in the two bedroom suite with my sister-in-law and dog. It was fantastic and very well set up for our needs. Convenient backyard where the dog could meander. Well equipped kitchen and outdoor grill. No need to go out if you don't want to; the local... More

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Treetop Suite. The "innkeepers" were welcoming and courteous and the self check-in system makes it very easy to feel right at home. The suite we stayed in was beautifully done, incredibly comfortable, and perfect for our weekend in Boise. The location is prime with easy access to restaurants and a fun Boise... More

We spent a weekend at the Boise Guest House for a friends Bachelorett party. We reserved 3 suites and couldn't have been happier. The rooms were all better than we could have imagined. We made good use of the kitchens and loved the fact there was plenty of free coffee with the option of using the regular drip coffee maker... More

What an awesome place! A great and easy alternative to hotels. My daughter and I visited Boise for St. Luke's Pediatric Hospital. Boise Guest House is close and it's quiet. Boise has some great hotels, but it's nice to stay in the North End; you can easily walk to the FlyingM and to the CoOp. I will recommend this place... More

We were very pleased with this guest house. It was charming, clean, and had a kitchen. It had nice small touches too, such as lots of pillows, nice shampoo and soap, and Netflix access. The location was excellent, near old town Boise and the capital building. The only downside happened to be the shower curtains on the old-style tub, which

This guest house is not only really close to happenings downtown, it also is a really neat historic house that has been well-maintained and updated! It's a great place to be able to cook, relax, and just enjoy the simple things in life. We spent our New Year's Eve cooking and playing games in the big common area in the... More

HI Stacy! Thanks for staying with us at the Boise Guest House for your New Year's Eve, and mentioning how close we are to everything downtown. Yes... it's true... the Boise Guest House does squeak. it was built in 1895, and sometimes older stuff just has creaky bones :-) I'm glad you pointed that out for future guests. It's definitely...

My besties & I live in Mtn. Home (about 30 mi. from Boise), but wanted to stay in the "big city" to celebrate my b-day in October.

This place is great, perfect location, reasonable rates. You can walk everywhere from here. We got a good discount by booking with owner directly. It was very quiet, we hardly saw another soul the whole three days we were there. We loved having the small kitchen in the room. However, I'm a light sleeper, and the fridge made a lot... More

We had a great time at the Boise Guest House. We stayed for a weekend in mid-March and just fell in love with the hotel. Each room is a little different with a ton of charm. We loved that there is a kitchenette in the room so we could whip up our own breakfast in the morning!
