Debbie and Curt married in 2009. Curt, a builder, grew up in Oakville, Washington. Debbie is originally from Sacramento California, but has lived in Eugene since 1995. She has a 9 to 5 and loves house design. The Elkay House, built in 2000, was designed by Debbie. Curt has since made additions and improvements to it. Together, Debbie and Curt design new homes, which Curt then builds to sell.

We like to travel and between us have visited 26 countries. Prior to meeting Debbie, Curt sailed solo for 3 years; to Hawaii, then made his way to New Zealand.

We enjoy sports, photography, writing and especially our combined 5 adult boys and their growing families. We have a 2 acre place on the Mohawk River in Marcola, Oregon, which keeps us busy.

We stayed 2 nights with all our family to attend our son's wedding. There were 9 of us all together and the home was the perfect place for us all. Everything was as indicated, well stocked, clean, tidy and just perfect for our needs. Thanks for everything, we had a lovely time.
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your kind words. We love it when the house serves as a warm, inviting base for important life events with family.

Holiday Charmer

Our family spent our Christmas here and it was perfect! When we entered we were pleasantly surprised to see that the home was decorated for Christmas and that made us feel very much at home. The kitchen is AWESOME, we did NOT go out to eat once and was able to invite local family over for dinners throughout the week of our stay. This was a true Holiday Charmer and we will stay here again and invite others to do the same.
Owner's Response: We are so glad you shared meals and enjoyed your family over the holidays at the Elkay House. Thank you for the kind words.

Relaxing, Fun, and Well-Stocked

This house is fantastic! It was extremely clean, very well stocked, and had a million neat features (our kids LOVED the fireman's pole)! The owners were very attentive and thought of everything. They we're very prompt in responding to our pre-travel questions, and even gave us suggestions on some sights to see in and around the area. I would highly recommend this home.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: May 22, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We stayed at the Elkay house for a family reunion. The house was wonderful. It looks like it has recently been updated and modernized to include little nooks and crannys in every room. the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen were perfect.
There is a fire pole in the living room. Be forewarned! Every time you touch it, the pole rattles the bedroom upstairs! Not a good thing for anyone trying to sleep in that room.
I would have liked to know that there was a tenant in the back before I rented the home. It was uncomfortable for me. The literature said "you'll hardly know she's there!" but we ran into her at every turn. We weren't loud or inappropriate by any means, but her presence made us feel watched.
Over all the house was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay at the Elkay house.
Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Elkay House. The bolts on the fire pole were loose because of recent retexturing and painting in the living room. It has since been tightened up snug, and no longer makes noise. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. The rental agreement that is accepted before making a deposit does include information that there is a tenant in a separate apartment over the shop. We realize not everybody reads the document before moving forward, which may have been there case here. The apartmet is not over the vacation house, so noise is never an issue. A 6' privacy fence creates a courtyard in the back of the Elkay vacation house for privacy. We take great pride in providing a clean, well equipped rental with a homey atmosphere at the Elkay House, and are glad that you chose it for your family reunion.

Wonderful Choice!

In town for a wedding, we had originally planned on a hotel but then opted for a house rental to better visit with family coming from three states. So very glad we did! The house was beautiful with much attention to built in details. My uncle who is a carpenter talked of nothing else while we were there and plans to use some of the ideas in the lake house he and his wife are updating. My almost three year old son played happliy in the little upstairs playroom almost the whole time we were there. And everyone got a kick out of the firepole, including my mom...we'll all laugh at that video for years to come! The house was everything we were hoping for and so much more. Thank you!
