The Governor's House
The State of Idaho Executive Residence, also referred to as the Governor's House or Idaho House, is considered the official residence of the Governor of Idaho. It serves as the center of the First Family's ceremonial, social and political activities. Because the house is also a significant landmark in the valley, every attempt is made to share this beautiful home with Idaho's citizens while continuing to meet the building's primary function as a home for the State's chief executive.
The Governor's House was established as the executive residence of Idaho's Governor in March 2009. The home, located at 4000 Simplot Lane, was donated to the state by Jack and Esther Simplot for the purpose of a residence for future governors. This very generous gift to the citizens of Idaho includes the 7,370 square foot house, 1,151 square foot garages, and 37.749 acres and comes with one condition--that the 30-by-50 foot American flag continue to fly above the home; which sits on a hilltop overlooking Boise.
The main level of the home consists of two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, library, main kitchen and caterer's kitchen, and a boardroom/dining room.
The upper level consists of an office, bathroom, entertainment area and great room/formal dining room.
The Governor's Housing Committee last met Friday, May 10, 2013, 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m., in room WW17 of the Capitol Building.
