Basement bedroom, privacy apart from the rest of the home in a unique space. This small and cozy room has a single size bed. The cooler basement has made AC unnecessary as of yet.
The room has charm and ecclectic artsy-bohemian style with a work desk, minifridge and plenty of space for your belongings.
We installed sound muffling batting in the ceiling but, as is common in older homes, sound carries from above and in the pipes.

The space

Cute & eclectic bench home. Mid-century country charm meets bohemian artsy. Super fun hosts who love Boise and love to show you around or give you all the necessary deets on where to go and what to see no matter what type of adventure you seek! We love to travel and meet new people and share our love of Boise with others just as we love learning from locals in other cities about their towns.
The large back yard has a yard swing and hammock (the back yard is currently undergoing re-landscaping conversion to a permaculture yard).
Both yards are private with raspberries in summer and we are a stroll from blackberry picking.
The basement bedroom stays pretty cool but we are happy to provide you a window unit if you are uncomfortably warm. We have additional fans & will do what we can to make your stay comfortable.

Guest access

Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry, TV, Front Yard, on and off-street parking. Please do not park in front of our neighbors to the west with the concrete fence. They have asked politely and we prefer to keep our neighbors happy and our relationships at peace.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you like. Let me know what you'd like to know about town & I'm happy to fill you in. I've lived here most of my life & if I don't know the answer, I generally know who does. We do love to get to know you while you're staying here so if you require ultimate privacy please let us know ahead of time so we can both be comfortable.

Other things to note

The back yard is currently undergoing some serious renovation and the front yard is pleasant.
The garage is unavailable & the vintage Dodge station wagon in the driveway is an old friend in long-term repair.
We have 2 cats who call the house home: Bailee (all black) is more of an outdoor cat while Princess (tuxedo b&w) prefers the indoors. Their food, water & box are in the basement laundry room & when we are travelling we have a friend who tends to them, please don't be surprised when they knock on the door to take care of the girls. When we are home, our dog Lucy is a friendly & social Mountain View Cur but don't be scared off by her gruff greeting, it's how she lets everyone know she's the gatekeeper, she warms up right away & if you stay awhile she soon greets you with a smile and a wag. While we are gone she keeps our friends company at their house.
If you have pets please understand animal nature is that ours will be territorial but will likely warm up after some transitional time if you happen to be staying for more than a week (all depending on the mix of personalities).

Sarah and Patrick are phenomenal people and excellent hosts. You will be staying with great friends who are interesting and enjoy having guests. The area is close to everything Boise has to offer and the room had everything you would need. Staying with them was the best part of my trip to Boise!

Sarah and Patrick are totally chill, their house is quiet, Lucy the dog greeted me enthusiastically the first day and after that was a perfect super friendly host-dog! I felt at home from the minute I arrived. (With two cats in the yard!) The rooms are clean, the shower is awesome, you can interact as much or as little as you want with the hosts and host pets. Everything is casual. The whole place has a funky artistic vibe that really works, the location has easy access to downtown and the freeways, there is a big grocery store and coffee stand 2 blocks away. For my purposes, which was a place to sleep while I was on a reunion tour of my hometown, it was perfect! I'll stay here again, if I need a place next time I drop in!
