A turn-of-the-century historic home on a popular street in a small college town. Centrally located - 5 blocks from the College of Idaho, and 5 blocks from the downtown area of Caldwell; all within walking distance. This property is not suitable for seniors with disabilities or infants. 3 bedrooms located on the 2nd floor (please see photos) offer private space with 100 year old details & quirks; no air conditioning, 1 bathroom, cats rule here, but lots of historic charm!
An older home in the historical section of town. There are many original elements to the home that was built around 1908, including footed bathtub, no central air (window unit in the main guest room only), separate (hot/cold) faucets in the bathroom sink; but it's fun to read about the history of the house and enjoy its uniqueness.
All registered guests have access to their private rooms on the second floor. The main floor living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, and breakfast room are available to all guests & their friends. Front and back porches, as well as the back deck and garden areas all available for visitors.
