A LITTLE HOUSE IN THE WOODS

Eugene Studio Rental Photos and Description

This newly built 800+ square foot studio apartment is eclectically finished and fully furnished. Located on a quiet 7 acres and only 8 miles from downtown Eugene and the University of Oregon, this is a country setting get away that makes you feel like the hustle and bustle of town is much further away. The studio is above our garage and has tranquil views of the property and surrounding woods and has been described as feeling like you are in the trees. There is one large newly carpeted bedroom with a mid century funky wardrobe and vanity, a queen size bed and comfortable double futon. The linens are 100% cotton, the main floors are hardwood cherry and the bathroom floor is a warm European tiled cork. The kitchenette has concrete counters and a bamboo island with teak hardwood top. The vaulted ceilings and efficient, modern design give the studio a spacious open feeling that is welcoming, interesting and comfortable.

Wake up to the swirling melodic song of the Swainsons Thrush instead of the intrusion of efficient but untimely hotel housekeepers, misdirected wake up calls or the vocal parade of early exiting varsity team members. No need to make sure you get up before the sun to secure your 'favorite' continental breakfast selection when you thought ahead and brought something much better with you and have it waiting a mere 15 feet away in your own convenient kitchen. We do supply a complimentary selection of Keurig single serving coffees, teas and other hot drinks to get you off to a good start.

There are a number of wineries and vineyards very close by, the most popular being King Estate, just 12 miles away. My other favorites not far from the house include Sarver, Sweet Cheeks and Territorial Vineyards. Sarver and Sweet Cheeks are set up for wine tasting with amazing views and patios that make a wonderful setting for a picnic. Territorial Vinyards has a nice wine tasting room in downtown Eugene, but don't limit yourself to those four. This area is world renowned for its Pinot Noirs and there are too many great ones within an hour or less drive to mention. If you are coming to town for Duck sports, the campus is less than 10 miles away.

We have two friendly dogs on the property. We keep them inside and on leashes when you are visiting. Please let us know if dogs are a particular problem as they have been know to sneak out an open door and love to introduce themselves to new and interesting people.

Mia Palkie purchased this studio in 2006

We bought this property in 2006 and built the 'Little House' as a guest house for our friends and family to enjoy when they came to visit. We wanted to give them the privacy of feeling like they were on their own vacation in the woods, as well as visiting us. The tag 'Little House' is a bit misleading as we are apparently seriously spatially challenged, because it turned out much larger than it looked on paper. It is however, a smaller version of the main house so in theory, 'Little House' is approriate. We still live in the main house across the driveway but talk about moving into Little House every time we clean over there because we like it so much!

We started building the little house a few years ago and wanted it to be an eco friendly structure. It is made of 'insulated concrete forms' which keeps it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Because of the concrete and the insulation, it is an extremely solid structure and very quiet inside.

PERFECT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at the "Little House"! It is open, airy, comfortable, clean and best of all, peaceful in a lovely setting. The owners are personable and accommodating - what more could you ask for? This will be our "go to" place for future trips to Eugene.

COZY AND PRIVATE

  • 5 of 5
THANK YOU for making my stay so pleasant at your wonderful abode!! It was just perfect--comfortable, quiet and calming. I loved being in the woods and waking to the sounds of nature rather than traffic noise. Also, I appreciated your checking in with me to ask if I needed anything without being intrusive. I would highly recommend your little house in the woods for anyone wanting to feel the comfort of being home while traveling.

THE PERFECT GET AWAY SPOT.

  • 5 of 5
We were in Eugene to visit family and Mia & Sara provided a perfect place for us to unwind. It feels like you are out in the woods but really only 10 minutes into town. The grounds are lovely and very cozy.

A LITTLE HOUSE IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
Its pretty amazing when your able to find a place like this but finding out its owned by a long lost High School friend.....is amazing. The little house in the woods is a prefect place to get away...relax in the beauty of Eugene. We loved waking up to seeing deer in the yard, picking black berries in the afternoon. Its so close to town before you know it your at your favorite hitching post (i.e. High Street Cafe or The Cornucopia)... Or one of the many local Breweries. Mia and Sara are great and provide you with a home away from home.

A LOVELY GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for an amazing, clean, efficient, comfortable, peaceful, cute, relaxing, safe place to stay - look no further. If you are looking for a great night's sleep - you've found the right place. It is not often I sleep as well or better when I'm away from home, but I sure did here! If you enjoy waking up to the gentle sound of birds and looking out your window onto a beautiful 'calendar-ish' view - this is your house. If you need to come to Eugene for a conference, a sporting event, a concert, or to visit friends and want a comfortable place to stay that is conveniently located - stay here. You will wake up in a beautiful peaceful setting - grab some hot coffee or tea - and be downtown within 10 minutes. This home is decorated so tastefully, the kitchen is perfect - everything you need is provided! Mia was incredibly welcoming - we so enjoyed the homemade blueberry jam on some English muffins we brought. Thank you, too, for the great restaurant recommendation - it was delicious! After dinner and a long day of meetings, it was nice to grab some ice cream and watch a bit of TV before turning in.
If you are looking for a place to stay that is incredibly clean, well kept and adorable - pick this home. We loved it and would definitely stay here again! Thank you, again, for your hospitality. And thank you for sharing your little house in the woods with us. It was, simply said, perfect!

Map

The Oregon coast is a must see. Florence on the Oregon coast is about 1 hour drive west. The rocky coastlines just outside of Florence boast beautiful scenery, fascinating tide pools, crabbing, fishing and hiking. Florence's unique landscape is a popular destination for those interested in four wheeling the sand dunes and sand surfing.

Corvallis, home of Oregon State University is about an hour north.

Bend (Skiing, Snow Sport, Rafting and outdoor summer sports) is about 3 hours east.

Salem is 1 hour and 15 minutes north.

Eugene airport is about a half hour drive north.

Portland is 2 hours north, but to get to the Portland Airport (PDX) is more like 2 and a half hours.

There is no public transportation to or from the property.
