Idaho City first came to be when gold was discovered in Boise Basin, transforming it into the largest city in the Pacific Midwest for a period of time. While the gold rush may already be over, the remnants of its glorious past can still be seen today, despite the number of fires that burned down many of its buildings. Go on a walking tour to explore old buildings such as the jail, the schoolhouse, saloons, and antique stores. Pay your respects to the departed at the Pioneer Cemetery. Drop by the Boise Basin Museum to examine artifacts from the bygone era. If you prefer surrounding yourself with nature, explore the verdant Boise National Forest, which features picturesque scenes. Whether you’re a history fan or a nature lover, you can find something to satisfy your interests. Book now in one of these Airbnb vacation rentals so you can begin your exploration of this historical city.

“Bed and breakfast” is actually a misnomer where this property is concerned. Besides morning meals, guests are also provided dinner during their stay here. Mealtimes, however, are not the only opportunities for the establishment to spoil you. Guests can avail the services of a masseuse if they wish for a massage, or use the hot tub that is right on the patio of their suite. A fitness center and a hot yoga room are also available on site. During winter, guests can enjoy snowshoeing in the vicinity, or try out skiing at a nearby resort. If they’re lucky, they can spot local wildlife in the surrounding area. During summer, they can enjoy fishing or boating.
