About Mara Taylor

i am a retired elementary and special education teacher (36 years). I bought this little house as an investment and would like to use it to meet new and interesting folks I spend my time volunteering at my church. the local hospital in the Gift Shop and as the laison between doctors and families waiting for loved in the Surgery Waiting area. I live about 20 minutes from the house in Cheshire along the Long Tom River with my wonderful Significant Other, Linnis. He helps with any little thing that needs to be done around Laura House. Laura House was named for my daughter who passed away in 2002 after many years and episodes of cancer. She would love sharing this little house and yard with you.

Mara Taylor purchased this house in 2007

Why Mara Taylor chose Eugene

I bought the this little house as an investment and maybe live in someday. I made the decision not to rent it long term.

VRBO seemed like a great alternative.

What makes this house unique

Laura House is just a short ride to the University of Oregon and the uniqueness of downtown Eugene and the surrounding area. Just a hop, skip and a jump to Beltline which will take you many places in Eugene and the surrounding area. Laura House is near the airport and less than 10 minutes from I-5.

Close to lakes and rivers, golf courses and theatres.

Almost walking distance to local shopping and restaurants.

Bike path access nearby.

House of clocks

  • of 5
What a lovingly cared for house! Very comfortable and obviously someone's treasure. I felt like I was visiting grandma's house with very little evidence of being a rental property. I did have to move a clock out of the bedroom because I am not use to the ticking, and turn off the deodorizer, which was not needed as the house was quite clean. It was even decorated for Christmas with outside lights etc. I was sad to leave even though I live right here in Eugene and was just visiting with out of town guests. The yard, front and back, is charming. I will keep this on my list for further visitors. Thank you for making things so comfy. The only thing I wished for....was directions to turning on the TV (the guys had to show me a few times before I could get it. On my own, no matter how much I tried, nothing!!) Loved the keypad entry and the electric fireplace was a great idea.

A Gem: Rain or Shine!

  • 5 of 5
I have lost count of the number of happy visits we have made to Laura House! This 2014 Thanksgiving, we had three generations staying for a week. It was perfect with three bedrooms and two baths. We had family together, good food, rain, cold, sunshine, and big wins for the Ducks! While we have yet to meet Mara, the owner, she has become a Eugene friend to our family! Come stay at Laura House...You will love it!

Precious, little house!

  • 5 of 5
Sweet, little house. Snug but comfy. Nice extras and our only issue was figuring out the TV system to watch the Ducks win! My teen finally figured it out. Our system is much simpler at home. The price was better than anything out there! Will look forward to our next stay. My mom visiting from out of town loved it!

fine in every way

  • 5 of 5
Laura House is a delight inside and outside, full of beauty, with everything one could need. We hope to rent this marvelous place for all future visits to this part of OR. It was even better than the pictures which did not adequately show the gardens, flowers, comfy outside swing and water fountain. The owner is friendly and helpful. I give this the highest possible recommendation.

Perfect family gathering spot.

  • 5 of 5
Cute, cozy, homey. Very comfortable home away from home. We were able to spend some old fashioned family time with the kids, like we did before they scattered around the country. Loved the feel of the house and espescially the yard. Loved morning coffee on the deck with the lovely landscaping and birds. Beautiful setting and lots of yard space for a gathering before my daughters wedding.

A Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
When looking for a place to rent, the most important considerations for me were a comfortable house that was clean, well maintained, cozy and owned by someone who was welcoming, accessible and cared about her rental property. After reading the reviews from previous renters I knew that Laura House was where I wanted to stay.

My husband and I loved the house. It looks exactly like the photos, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were nice sized, kitchen was amply equipped with lots of amenities and closets/cupboards had more supplies if needed. A bonus for us was it has a nice size attached garage which was very convenient. And most important, everything was spotless and in good working order.

The backyard was nicely landscaped, cute and very conducive to entertaining. Our dog enjoyed sniffing all the plants and spent quite a bit of time sunbathing on the deck.

We enjoyed looking around the University of Oregon campus; quite impressed by the stadium, visited Portland and being an equestrian, I enjoyed visiting the nearby Oregon Horse Center.

If my husband and I decide to return to the Willamette Valley, we would definitely rent Laura House again, A Home Away from Home.
