My husband and I stayed at the Guest house for 5 days. We stayed in the treetop suite and it was amazing!! Equipped with all we needed, we just brought the food. We were in town to visit our son and this place fit our needs beyond our expectations!! It was spacious enough to host him and his friends with...

We stayed in the Front Porch suite of the Boise Guest House Annex at the end of March 2017 for 3 nights. We loved the location - a quiet, residential neighborhood close to the foothills trails for hiking every day and also to the restaurants in Hyde Park. In addition, the bed was super comfortable, and everything we needed was...

My wife and I had a wonderful visit to the Annex on 6th street in the North End. What a great way to get to know Boise within easy walking distance of downtown and right at the base of miles of hiking trails. The property was newly remodeled and in great shape for a historic bungalow. Character, simplicity, uniqueness and...

My husband and I stayed at BGH and would definitely recommend it. Self check-in was easy (with a tray of brownie bites or cookies each day) and our room, the Story Suite, was awesome. Not only was it bright and cute, it was functional. We were on the last leg of a three week trip and we had quite a...

I almost don't want to let people know how great this place is! This is our new place to stay all the times we go to Boise. Close to downtown and trails to run or walk. Check in was easy and the manager was easy to get a hold of when I realized I booked the wrong night!

Stayed here overnight on a business trip. Really terrific property. Was booked into the Attic Suite. Room was super charming, incredibly spacious with a living room, full kitchen, two bedrooms. Some of the rooms are pet-friendly while others are pet-free and hypoallergenic. Furnishings are cute and the property, despite the age of the house itself, is well-maintained. There is free...

We stayed 3 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday and the location is very quiet and easy walking distance to downtown bars and shops. The Treetop Suite is very comfortable, has a ton of room, a kitchen, quality linens and is spotless, I mean really spotless. We will stay here again!

We needed to find a room quickly near St. Luke's hospital where a family member was facing surgery, and this was so perfect for us. Received confirmation within minutes. Off street parking, clear instructions for self-check in, walking distance to all of downtown, not to mention just a few blocks to St. Luke's. Really appreciated having a full kitchen in...

We were looking for a place to stay within walking distance of all the activities in downtown Boise. This was just the place. Location was ideal, the room well appointed, laundry downstairs, and convenient parking. And the bikes were an added bonus to ride along the river trail and out to the botanical gardens. We would definitely stay there again.
