Located about six and a half miles from downtown, this sunny and cute one bedroom restored farmhouse is just off the Boise River Greenbelt, on a one-acre corner lot. Perfect for a couple or small family looking for a convenient vacation home near the river, the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, and the many other outdoor attractions Boise has to offer, this quaint but well-stocked cottage has both an urban and rural appeal!
The lovely new deck with pergola greets you out front. As you step through the doors, a soothing interior awaits. A small breakfast nook right by the window is the ideal spot for enjoying a homemade breakfast or light dinner; the open, cheerful kitchen has everything needed for meal preparation. You'll feel right at home in this bright space as refill your coffee cup, grab another buckwheat pancake, and head back to the dining table to finish reading the paper.
Neutral earth tones with bursts of color compose the cozy living room. There's seating for all in this pleasant space, as well as plush carpeting and plenty of windows for an abundance of natural light. For times when you're not outside strolling along the greenbelt, you can relax on the couch with a good book. There is also a flatscreen TV with cable and a DVD player for movie nights. Just make the popcorn and you're all set!
The bedroom is located in the back of the house and holds a queen-sized bed decked out in fresh new linens and a red floral print cover for a restful night's sleep. Small bedside tables, decorative reading lamps, and built-in drawers complete the room, along with a lovely Bentwood rocking chair. The bathroom has been recently remodeled and has a shower. In addition to the queen bed, the living room couch pulls out to a very comfortable full sized bed for kids or a second couple, so this house can accommodate up to four guests.
Even though the space is small, there is a lot of character and stylish designer touches throughout, such as modern, floral lamps and quiet seating areas. There is also a washer and dryer for your use, as well as a convenient mud room for storing bikes and hiking boots when not in use. And if you have a furry family member, one dog is welcome here for a $10 nightly fee ($40 minimum per stay). Although, please be aware that this house is located between a somewhat busy commuter street and a downhill canal; the yard is large but unfenced, so children and pets should always be supervised when outside.
In the summer, head right next door to Barber Park with your inner tubes for a fun afternoon of floating down the Boise River. Less than a mile and a half from the house, you can enjoy an evening outside watching the Bard's greatest works at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival. The season runs in repertory June through September and is fun for the whole family.
For more outdoor adventure, bring your bikes for a scenic ride around town or in the nearby foothill trails. Perfect for after dinner strolls or early morning jogs, the Boise Greenbelt Trail is 22 miles of gorgeous tree-lined pathway that follows the along river with picturesque views of the city anytime of year. Also nearby, Lucky Peak is only six miles away for boating, fishing, swimming or just having a lazy, afternoon picnic in the sun.
In addition to making the short drive into downtown Boise, there are many restaurants and shops in Bown Crossing, about a mile and a half from the house. Pick up some Snake River Organic Brown Ale at Bier:Thirty or treat yourselves to a steak dinner at the Tavern at Bown Crossing.
When you're looking for a outdoor getaway to Boise that's close to hiking, biking, theater, or just fun on the river, look no further than this cute, little Barber Park Cottage!

This was a perfect place for us to stay. It was on the edge of the urban growth in Boise. We could look out the windows at the mountains. From the photos of this rental, it looked like it was in the country. It is actually in a nice neighborhood. We were surprised when we first arrived because there was a truck with a snowmobile on a trailer in the driveway and there were junk cars in the yard next door. The first impression had us worried but it was just the one house that looked a bit off. All of the other houses were nice.
The house is on a slightly busy interception but it is extremely quiet at night. The yard is private and secluded. Although the house is older, everything in it worked great. It was clean and well-kept. It felt like a cozy home.
The only problem for me was that the TV was up high and in a corner. The angle caused me some neck pain. But my husband didn't seemed bothered by the position of the TV.
Downtown Boise is just minutes away on streets that have little traffic.
This home is one of our favorite vacation rentals now.
A great place to stay with single family. We had two small kids with us (5 Months and 2.5yrs) and it was set up well for us. Just big enough and the right safety precautions were thought of. We did have an issue with our toddler locking himself and our infant in the master bedroom. Lots of Drama. We called the number provided and within no time the property owner and Vacasa staff worked a solution and the crisis was resolved. Do not stay anywhere else in Boise!!!!! Great affordable place.
Barber Park is truly a home away from home. Everything one needs is there. Actually I was a bit surprised. Just bring your personal items. The property is extremely clean. All the appliances worked perfectly. The bed was soooo comfortable! Although the street is busy, safety and security was never an issue. I recommend this property to anyone who visits Boise. Thank you for offering this property to your visitors. It is way better than a hotel room and very reasonable .. Thanks again ! Linda
