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.
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.
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.
