The Space

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.

Guest Access

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.

Interaction with Guests

This is our home... we are here every day and available to talk with and provide information to you. We have our own rooms, in the basement of the house. Debbie loves to bake, fresh breads, muffins or scones on the weekends; fresh ground & brewed coffee daily. We love meeting and greeting new friends, we can visit or give you as much privacy as you desire. You have the whole 2nd floor of the house to yourselves!

The Neighborhood

We are in the heart of the Steunenberg Historical District of the City of Caldwell, Idaho. 5 blocks from the prestigious College of Idaho, and 5 blocks north of downtown Caldwell. Beautiful tree lined streets with older homes and a delightful short walk to the revitalized downtown area of "Indian Creek" with wandering paths, meandering waterway and small shops, and from May to September; the Farmer's Market stalls.

Getting Around

Easy walking access to everything....but we are very close to the local bus route... bike paths that lead out to the YMCA - downtown - and even out to the Greenbelt on the edge of town.

Other Things to Note

Your hosts: Rob and Debbie Oates, are "empty- nesters" and early risers (before 5am!) as we head out to the local YMCA for exercise. Our home is not appropriate for senior citizens with disabilities. There are 18 stairs to get to the bedrooms, the main guest bed is very high, 3 cats that may want to check you out & a small shower stall and one window air conditioner in the main guest room. Continental Breakfast will be available in the main kitchen after 6:30am each day of your visit. The information binder in the guest room is full of local events/activities/ restaurants/ wineries etc. Rob is a 5th generation Idahoan and knows the area quite well. Please note: We require 24 hour notice for booking at the Platt House.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
