Great accommodation and location. Boise was a perfect base to travel to see the total Eclipse. Scott and Sharon has catered for all our needs and had even supplied us with some eclipse glasses. Thank you for letting us use your lovely home.

About the neighborhood
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.
