Designer Home in the North End with Enclosed Yard, Near Parks

Charming and meticulously decorated, this Boise craftsman offers an enclosed yard and all the cozy amenities of home - plan a wine tasting trip with close friends or a family getaway into the great outdoors in this lovely space! Built in 1923 by the son of Irish immigrants, this bright home features hardwood floors, antique decor, cheery blue and yellow accents, and three bedrooms and a bathroom all on the main floor. Snuggle up on the sofa by the gas fireplace, rally your loved ones for a family board game in the sun room, and let the little ones unwind with movies on the flatscreen cable TV and DVD player. Outside, the enclosed backyard is a whimsical space with a vine-covered pergola and an ornate river-rock patio. Serve lemonade or mojitos under the umbrella on the porch, or fire up the grill for the perfect outdoor barbecue.


The Harrison House is located in Boise's historic North End, on the tree-lined Harrison Boulevard (which is on the National Register of Historic Places). The home is two miles from downtown, and just blocks from Camel's Back Park and Hyde Park. Play doubles at the Camel's Back tennis courts or rent stand-up paddleboards from Idaho River Sports to explore Quinn's Pond two miles away. In town, you can ride your bike along the Boise River Greenbelt or stroll with your loved ones through the Idaho Botanical Garden. Float the river at Barber Park or take the kiddos to see the tigers at Zoo Boise. In winter, Bogus Basin is less than 16 miles away, where you can enjoy a white Christmas or ring in the New Year on the ski slopes.

The house is very clean and comfortable. Even though it is located on Harrison Blvd it was very quiet as the bedrooms are in the back and Harrison is quiet at night. The location is perfect with easy walks to Hyde Park for coffee and/or good restaurants. The area in general invites long walks. We will definitely be back.
Kari D. Sep 2021
We used to live in Boise so it was a homecoming visit to friends. We knew we wanted North end and this house did not disappoint! Wonderful location very bright and airy. Will be coming back to stay again :-)
Michael S. Sep 2021
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house itself had everything we needed - good size and comfortable bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, multiple spaces to hang out both inside and outside, and a quality washer and dryer. We also appreciated the architectural and design details - lots of character! The house is less than half a mile to many restaurants in the Hyde Park Historic District and only a few blocks from Camel’s Back Park. We would not hesitate to book this again on a future trip to Boise.
Karen B. Jul 2021
Best location in Boise! Near our family and numerous activities, restaurants. Warm, traditional setting for a relaxing time. Plenty of room to spread out or gather together.

Stephanie R. Apr 2021
We enjoyed our time spent on Harrison blvd! Not only is the neighborhood amazing with all of the restaurants, sites, etc. so close by, but the house was exactly what we needed. Everything you need on your trip is supplied and there are so many great amenities! Definitely recommend!
Jennifer H. Jan 2021
The location was great as well as the house. The communication from management was not quick or responsive.
Manager response:
Hi Jennifer, thank you for staying with us! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the home! We're so sorry that you had difficulty reaching our team and we offer our sincere apologies for the frustrations this has caused. Please know that we are experiencing a higher than normal call and email volume at this time.

Gerald D. Sep 2020
Nice older home in a safe neighborhood but close to everything. Comfortable, well supplied, clean. Enjoyed the front porch and enclosed back yard.
Melissa M. May 2020
This location is fabulous and we love it! Original Idahoans, we wanted to enjoy a couple weeks away. This home was well appointed with nice amenities... the only draw back may have been the squeaky floors at night but we planned around it... Enjoy this location!
Meghan B. Mar 2020
Perfect location for all things Boise! Very walkable to downtown and hyde park. Great little house with all amenities one could want!
Matthew T. Mar 2020
Classy, clean, and well outfitted home. Highly recommend.
Gary R. Feb 2020
Really nice home, well appointed, in a great location. Captures the best of Boise. Access and communication is fantastic, not a single issue.
Kathleen K. Jan 2020
Beautiful home with everything you could need.
Judith S. Dec 2019
Lovely, older home on a beautiful tree lined street.
Very nice walking neighborhood!
Clean and comfortable!
suzanne t. Dec 2019
Darling house. Great location. We’ll be back for sure!
Darilyn D. Sep 2019
We were 71 year old ladies, friends since childhood, who get together every year at a vacation rental in a different city. This years find was one of our favorites. The house is very well decorated, everything you need while traveling was there, it was very clean and on a spectacular avenue of Boise. Would highly recommend this vacation rental.
Amanda S. Aug 2019
We stayed in the Harrison House the weekend that we moved our daughter into BSU. It was so nice to have a calm, clean and homey environment to come home to each night. We loved sitting on the porch and relaxing each evening before bed.
Henry K. Aug 2019
Stayed in this house for a wedding with kids and grandparents. Not only very comfortable and well-appointed, the house is also well laid out and spacious. Loved sitting on the front porch and under the grapevine-covered terrace. Hope to stay again sometime!
michael w. Jul 2019
Fantastic house
Will T. Apr 2019
Beautiful neighborhood, close to parks, hiking, neighborhood dining, and downtown. House was perfect and had everything we needed.
Monique J. Apr 2019
We stayed over a long weekend during a family visit. It was wonderful to be able to walk to parks, restaurants, shops, and be very close to downtown. The kitchen was well equipped for family meals, the teens enjoyed the quirky touches of the old home like the laundry chute, creaking wooden floors, and neighborhood porch. As the organizer, I was very pleased with the ease of booking and getting in and out of the home. Plenty of linens and supplies for laundry, dishes, showers, etc. The only downside was no coffee in the cupboard for our first morning. We will definitely check availability here on our next return to Boise.
Rosemary H. Mar 2019
Wonderful home with lots of room for families and groups. Cozy bedrooms and a large kitchen. The keypad lock on the front door was easy to use (compared to some I've had to wrestle with). Furnished very nicely. Not a lot of window coverings, though. I highly recommend this home!
Christopher E W. Feb 2019
warm and cozy
Tiffany S. Dec 2018
We enjoyed our staying during the Thanksgiving holiday. We thought the house was lovely. Would only be critical of that there is only one bathroom but other than that we had a wonderful time. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was functional and the living room was cozy.
Kekoa D. Nov 2018
What a great home! The home decor is very lovely and upon entering it has a warm, welcoming feel. There's plenty of space all around and I look forward to coming back to the home in the future.
Michael P. Oct 2018
We loved this place, My husband and I met and married in Boise 34 years ago. We came back to visit. My husband lived in a home just a block or two from this outstanding home. Thank you for keeping is so close to its original style. Only one thing, if just one of the 7 or 8 clocks we counted had the correct time, that would be a great improvement.
Laura R. Oct 2018
Backyard with vined pergola.
Kay M. Aug 2018
The house was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We loved the neighborhood. It was within walking distance of parks, hiking trails, a grocery store and the restaurants in Hyde Park.
Kit S. Aug 2018
Absolutely loved this adorable home. It was very comfortable, beds perfect, nicely furnished and in a delightful neighborhood. We'll definitely stay here again!
Marla T. Jul 2018
Home was well appointed with a great location. Easy access to airport and all points out of town. Quick walk to downtown, parks and trails. Tranquil garden. Would stay there again
Brenda L. Jun 2018
Great house. Lovely neighborhood. We had a great time.
Judith S. May 2018
I loved staying on Harrison Street, a beautiful tree lined street close to everything. I could walk to parks, shopping, restaurants. The house was furnished very nicely and very clean, comfortable and cute. Beautiful backyard for relaxing. Cable TV was a plus. Everything about my stay was perfect! This is definitely a home away from home. I look forward to returning.
Laura R. Mar 2018
House with style! We had teenagers that thought it was darling. The floors were super squeaky and would wake everyone up in the night. Smells old! Which it is! But charming!
Jennifer C. Feb 2018
We love this little home on Harrison Street! We have made it our home away from home when we visit Boise. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Scott S. Feb 2018
Very nice older home. Well appointed and comfortable. I would strongly recommend this property
Camron J. Feb 2018
We stayed in this home for a week, and it was absolutely wonderful. We had everything we needed for a very comfortable week in Boise. We will definitely sty again.
Jennifer M. Jan 2018
The house was really lovely and in a great locale. Property manager was extremely responsive.
Michelle B. Jan 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely updated, yet vintage home! It oozed charm and character and was quite cozy. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful and nice for walks. Location of the home is awesome, with downtown and Boise State University only 5-7 minute drive. We felt right at home in this well-appointed and lovingly decorated historic house.
Dale H. Dec 2017
We loved staying at the Harrison house. The fire place was warm on cold winter evenings in December and the house was so tastefully decorated. The beds were very comfortable and both town and hiking in the Boise foothills were within walking distance. We would come back.
Mark B. Dec 2017
Peter B. Nov 2017
The Harrison House was a wonderful place to stay in a historic Boise neighborhood. The home is walking distance to 13th Street, Camel's Back Park, and close to downtown. We had three generations of family gathered and it was the perfect place!
Katie C. Nov 2017
We had our immediate family stay here for our wedding in Boise. Our moms and cousins absolutely loved it, they felt like they were back in time because the house has so many beautiful tradition details. They were in heaven! I've almost never seen my mom so happy, the house took her back to her child hood...but the furntiture and details were as modern as you could ever want. It was the perfect place! Thank you!
Judith S. Oct 2017
Very comfortable, cozy and nicely furnished home on a beautiful tree lined street.
Shopping, restaurants and parks all within walking distance. Nice area to take long walks and enjoy Boise. Loved spending time in the peaceful, quiet backyard of this home too! Very much looking forward to returning.
Lori E. Sep 2017
This is a fabulous home with a wonderful location. The home is charming and all of the comforts of a warm home. Nicely decorated and livable. Such fun to enjoy a historic neighborhood. We will be back.
Mark D. Sep 2017
Outstanding location and a great art filled historic home in the Hyde Park area of Boise. Very well equipped kitchen. A second bath would have been nice, but no complaints. Highly recommend this home.
Darlene F. Sep 2017
The house was so charming. The location was perfect for being close to all that we wanted to do. Five of us graduated high school together many yrs ago and this was perfect for our gathering.
Leonard M. Sep 2017
2nd time we have stayed at the home and we will be back.

Susan V. Aug 2017
Special property. Perfectly updated and decorated. Thoughtfully stocked.
Kathy And Ken E. Aug 2017
We were very close to out points of interest. Hiking was near (although it was very hot while were were there). Kitchen well stocked, comfortable beds, and we really loved the old vintage home area. Quite at night as well.
Kristi I. Jul 2017
Stayed here for business as all the local hotel rooms were sold out. I loved it! House, neighborhood, location - everything was perfect! Booking process was seamless. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Mindy S. May 2017
This home was perfectly located for our purpose in Boise. Within minutes of the downtown area with lots of local shopping and food to choose from. The home is in great condition. Very clean and well maintained. The porch is perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. There were board games on hand that we enjoyed during our down time during our stay. Would definitely book this property again if we were to come back to the area.
Melanie S. Apr 2017
We loved the old charm. Beds were very comfortable. Perfect location.
Rory H. Mar 2017
The home was a perfect size for our family of four. We had never visited Boise before and found the location of the home to be close to everything we wanted: Boise State, downtown, and the capital were all minutes away. Plus, a short drive up the mountain lead us to great skiing at Bogus Basin. The furnishings were quaint and comfortable and the appliances were modern and new. I would recommend this home to anyone visiting the area.
Julie W. Feb 2017
Charming, clean home in the best part of town.
Can't wait to visit again.
Ann L. Nov 2016
This house is clean and very nice, but with very creaky wood floors. It only has one bathroom and to get to it you pass all the bedrooms on this very noisy wood floor. This was difficult for us with a young baby, and would be for a light sleeper as well. Otherwise, we had a lovely stay.
Jennifer C. Nov 2016
As future residents of Boise we have been staying in different areas through out the city and this by far was our favorite. The home was perfectly maintained and cared for making for a very welcoming and comfortable visit. Having 13th Street just a few blocks away allowed us time to really enjoy the neighborhood and experience the lifestyle of Boise. We will be back!
Jann P. Oct 2016
Enrich your Boise experience by feeling like a local in this adorable home on the beautiful tree lined street in the coveted north end.
Shelly B. Oct 2016
This house was perfect for our girls trip of 4. The bedrooms were nicely sized and even though there was only one bathroom it was really large. The location was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay!
Hank & Donalyn A. Aug 2016
This place is like going back in time. I am a big fan of Victorians and I just loved the charm of it all. This street is amazing but it's quite busy, so you will hear traffic noise. All the houses in this neighborhood are adorable.
Bill Z. Aug 2016
The home was in a perfect location convenient to all of Boise. The neighborhood seems to be one of the best in town is great for a little afternoon walk and convenient to downtown the airport and other area attractions. The home had all the modern conveniences while maintaining the historic integrity.
Melissa N. Jul 2016
The Harrison House was cozy, inviting, and beautifully decorated. It was also white-glove clean with ample towels and kitchen supplies. We loved the location--rented cruiser bikes at Idaho Mountain Touring and biked to Hyde Park every day for coffee in the morning and ice cream after dinner. It's clear that someone has lovingly restored and decorated this home, and it was a pleasure to spend four days there. Reservation, check-in, and check-out process were smooth and easy--love the digital guestbook!
Terianne S. Jul 2016
This classic home is clean, cozy, and in a beautiful neighbourhood. It was fun to see all the people out walking dogs and riding bikes. The timeless sound of an ice cream truck in the distance made staying in this period house unforgettable.
Thank you
Karen V. Apr 2016
My husband and I made a trip to Boise for a mix of fun and business, and we could not have been more pleased with our choice of the "Harrison House."

I'm not really sure where to start, so I'll start at the beginning. The reservation process via Vacasa was smooth and the level information provided about the home and surrounding area was very detailed.

If you're not familiar with Boise, and we weren't before our visit, Harrison Blvd is THE place to be. It is an historic, beautiful street with a greenbelt and stately homes. We felt very safe and comfortable walking the neighborhood, which I recommend doing. Harrison Blvd and nearby Hyde Park are great places to explore. There are shops and restaurants to visit, and Camelback Park, with its hiking and biking trails, is within walking distance. It is a very pedestrian and bike friendly area. In fact, I would say all of Boise is like that.

Harrison Blvd is also very close to downtown. It's probably a 5 minute drive, and you could easily bike there if you chose. Downtown Boise is full of independently run restaurants, pubs and shops. Lots of activity...even on the weekends. The residents are very friendly and love to give visitors pointers on where to eat and what to see. Very cool vibe.

The house itself was awesome! When you first walk in the door, it has a peaceful, comfortable feeling. The furnishing are perfectly matched with the era of the house and lend to its warmness. Some rentals have a cold, generic feeling, but this one has loads of fine touches and attention to detail that make you feel right at home.

The kitchen is well equipped. Everything you'd need to prepare a meal. The appliances are new. Truth be told, I returned home with refrigerator-envy. Washer/dryer and detergent/softner on site, quite convenient.

The beds, pillows and linen were incredibly comfortable. We slept great! I never sleep great when I travel. The towels were soft, fluffy and plentiful. A BIG plus in my book.

All in all, we sincerely enjoyed our time in the house, on Harrison Blvd and in Boise (which, by the way, is pronounced Boy-see by those who live there). We highly recommend staying at the "Harrison House" and exploring all the area has to offer.

Travel well!
John M. Feb 2016
We just returned from a relaxing week in Boise and could not have been more pleased with our stay at Harrison House. It's wonderfully appointed, clean, and comfortable and we truly felt at home. Our kids cried when they had to leave! You really can't beat the location if you want to enjoy all that the city has to offer. It's a beautiful property and we can't wait to visit again...
Tiffany H. Dec 2015
I may be biased because we have stayed here before, but we love this house! It is such a wonderful environment, and in a great area. The street is so beautiful, and all of the surrounding homes are also beautiful.
This home is on the historic Harrison Street, so it is not in downtown, but close enough (10 minutes), if you need to get there. The home has everything you'll need, and you also won't want to leave. Our next stay in Boise, will definitely include this house.
Tiffany H. Dec 2015
Wonderful home. My husband, daughter, and I stayed here multiple times during the fall/winter while he was working in Boise. This home has so much charm, and really is set up wonderfully. Everyone (property owners and property management) are so nice and accommodating, and we will be back!
Wonderful home!
Tiffany H. Oct 2015
My husband, daughter, and I are in Boise for more of an extended work trip, and we came across this home. It is AMAZING. All of the little details of the home were very wonderful, and made it a very inviting and comfortable environment. The location is great, it is right on Harrison Blvd., which is a beautiful street. Close to shops, parks, and downtown is a couple of miles away.
This home had everything you would need, right down to the nice kitchen supplies.
The property manager was so wonderful, with all of his help and communication.
It truly is worth every penny, and I can't wait to go back to this home.
