Overview

West Eugene House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This quaint and charming home is centrally located ,in the heart of downtown Eugene, Oregon. It is only a brisk walk from the eclectic Whitaker / Blair Boulevard neighborhood with its many ethnic restaurants and grocers, gourmet dining establishments and great music venues. One of Eugene's best bakeries is only a few steps away! Deliscious! The Pizza Research Institute and Papa's Soul Food Kitchen are extraordinary and Sam Bond's Garage is a popular music venue for local, and not so local, artists. Just down the way a bit is the Hult Center where touring companies bring theatre and music to Eugene and where the notable Eugene Symphony, the Mozart Players and the Bach Festival perform to the delight of local and international audiences. For a change of pace , take public transportation, or drive,the short distance to Matthew Knight Arena, Autzen Stadium, Hayward Field or PK Park where top notch athletic competitions never fail to thrill and inspire.

Setting: The Madison Guest House greets the visitor with an inviting country garden displaying a variety of seasonal flowers and shrubs that soften the urban landscape and lend a tranquil air to the cottage. Tucked behind a cedar enclosure you will find a quiet oasis with space for relaxing, reading or meditating as well as for casual dining...

Beer: Micro brews are another part of the culture and economy of the area that has seen steady growth in popularity. Home brewing is also well supported in the region and worth investigating. Several establishments in Eugene specialize in local brews and offer tastings periodically.. Some of these are within walking distance of this property..

Throughout Oregon wine has become a prominent part of the culture as well as the economy. Within Eugene and the Willamette Valley are some of the best wines produced domestically. Wine tasting tours , barrel tours, are offered at various times during the season. Tasting rooms are located throughout Eugene and are easily accessible by foot, pedal, bus or car.Micro brews are another part of the culture and economy of the area that has seen steady growth in popularity.

Cozy, homey base camp for exploring Eugene!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute gem with everything you could possibly need provided...clean, with comfy beds and rooms to find privacy if wanted or large enough for a fun family reunion. The statement of my 3 week stay was that everything was "5 minutes away" and that was pretty accurate, whether it be a shopping mall, civic center, theaters, grocery stores, great food and drink.

The owner has created a place that feels like home the minute you enter...we cooked, enjoyed wine and champagne outside in the back garden patio, tended to our laundry...and basically enjoyed Eugene and the coast from our little piece of paradise. Look forward to coming back again and certainly recommend to anyone who wants a homey rather than confined hotel atmosphere. Thanks for creating a wonderful place for an "escapee" from Los Angeles.

Great in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home, just my husband and me, as we enjoyed some of the action at the Olympic trials. It was just as advertised, very easy walking distance to many good places to eat and easy driving distance to major activity centers. I can't think of anything we needed through the weekend that we didn't find in the house. Sometimes we ate in and sometimes we ate out and either way we were perfectly accommodated. We would gladly stay again if we find ourselves back in Eugene on a quick trip without our travel trailer.

Warm, Wonderful, Artsy Madison House in Eugene, OR

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Carolyn Wells' Madison House in Eugene, OR last month, May 2016. It is just blocks to many of our favorite restaurants and haunts in Eugene. We could walk to most places we wanted to see.

The house is a cozy, artfully decorated older home in Eugene. There was a large dining room, large kitchen, and 3 large bedrooms and 2 baths.

We had a family gathering with 3 adult families, and we were most comfortable staying there.

When we visit Eugene again, we know where we will like to stay!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Perfect little cottage, well appointed for all needs

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this cottage, and so this is my second review. Again, we were very pleased with our stay in Carolyn's little Eugene charmer. It is clean, cute, and decorated with my favorite style of "bohemian simplicity" that makes it so comfortable and homey. Carolyn has gone to great lengths to make sure that everything you need is available - whether it is Keurig coffee pods, spices, and ziplock bags and tin foil, or robes, slippers, and disposable razors in the bathrooms. If you need it, it's there! Games, books, DVD's - they're there. Each bedroom has an air conditioner which is so nice on muggy days. The outside garden area is a lovely little fairy garden in the midst of the city - so pleasant to sit outside and have coffee in the morning, surrounded by flowers and trees. I love this VRBO and we will keep coming back when it's available and we are in Eugene - it's affordable, centrally located, and a perfect home-away-from-home.

A lovely home in a central Eugene location

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn's home was just perfect for a mix of adults and teenagers. We were in Eugene for the Oregon Middle School Meet of Champs track meet and the Pre Classic. The layout was ideal for all of us. The adults using the front bedrooms and bath with the teenagers using the back of the home with their own "lounge", bathroom, and bedroom. We could shut the door of the kitchen and enjoy adult time in the front living room. We had a wonderful stay and it was so great to be 5 minutes from Hayward field.

Eugene, Oregon finds itself in the enviable position of being located less than two hours from the beauty and drama of the Pacific Ocean and the grandeur of the Cascade Range of the Rocky Mountains. For those interested in outdoor activities this area is unsurpassed. Fly fishing and drift boats, sailing and water skiing are all within a few minutes drive. A trip to the ski slopes is only a day trip away as is a walk on the beach at sunset and all the fresh seafood you can eat. For the competitive athlete Track Town USA is amazing . NCAA, Olympic trials, Eugene Marathon and multiple trail runs, half marathons,etc. consume the spring and summer calendar.

Other Activities: mushroom hunting, wine tasting, Beer Week,art and music festivals
