About Judy Mooney
I believe I am a true Eugenion at heart. I have ventured outside of Eugene a couple of times during my life.. 8 ). My parents were living here when I was born but I was born in Portland. I grew up going on the beautiful Willamette River bike path for bike rides, walks, rollerskating and some rollerblading. I tried living in California for a few years but I knew my heart was still in Eugene. I feel so blessed to have been raised in such a beautiful place and so close to the coast and snow, surrounded by beautiful evergreen. There is no place like home, for me, I had to move back. I can't imagine moving away from Eugene again, I love, love, love it here! 8 )
Judy Mooney purchased this House in 2006
Why Judy Mooney chose Eugene
For one, it is very close to a bike path entrance. Another, I like the set up of the house. The living room and family room/kitchen has a door in between to close if desired. The bedrooms are spacious. I love the trees on my property. The Swedish birch in the front is so pretty when in bloom and blowing in the wind. The firs and my weeping sequoia in the back. There is built in air conditioning with shade covering the house pretty much all day. Another awesome feature, the very quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Very slow moving traffic because the street is very short and ends in a little round circle of a street, great for doing short laps around!
What makes this House unique
The home is pretty centrally located. Easy drive to so many places, the airport, the parks along the bike path, down town Eugene, Autzen Stadium, and U of O.

Clean & Ecclectic - Pet Friendly too!
Judy was a pleasure to work with: She was very accessible before, during, and after our stay. She always made sure to return texts/phone calls promptly, and she was willing to go the extra mile and fast-track her house keeping so that my family could check in earlier after traveling on the road for nearly 15 hours.
The home and the property are adorable: the front and back yard are both fenced, and there is an attached dog kennel and a covered outdoor area in the back, lovely and charming landscaping, and a very private back yard.
As soon as you walk in, the house feels cozy and welcoming. Each bedroom has its own eclectic decor, which matches unique Eugene to a tee. There is even a little girls room that is as cute as a button, which was appropriate for us since I have a six-year old niece. Even if you don't have younger kids, the two beds in the room make boarding for extra visitors a cinch. The kitchen is large and open, and everything is clean. Great layout and separation of space so each guest feels comfortable. The single-level makes it easy for even older or disabled visitors to navigate. The property is on a quiet street near the bike trail and commuting, and is very easy to find!
You can tell the owners work hard to make sure their travelers are happy, I would definitely recommend this place--fantastic stay for the price!
So were you! Thank you very much! So glad I could have the house ready for you a little sooner. I just put on my ninja butt kicking moves, along with my helper and we gotter done. 8 ) It's always an awesome feeling to know that my house and all that it has to offer is being fully enjoyed. The many reasons I loved this house when I bought it was the bike path being so close and easily accessible, the quiet street, the spacious rooms, the dividing factor between the living room and the family room/kitchen and the "NO STAIRS"! Yay! So glad your niece got to enjoy the dusty purple and cotton candy pink room, along with you. 8 ) So happy with the word eclectic! I think that describes my taste so well, I think it's my new favorite word. Lol Thank you for staying at Moonlight Haven. Please come back again! Take care. Sincerely, Judy Mooney P.S Thank you also, for this awesome review!
Very nice older home. Decor was homey and welcoming.
The rooms were exactly what we needed for the entire family to be in one home away from home. This made so much more sense and was more affordable then several hotel rooms. We argued over who got the next turn to use the fantastic massage chair! Nice , quiet area of town, too.
Hello Kassandra, 8 )
I'm so happy to hear it worked out great for your family and even saved you money at the same time. Also, glad you found it homey and that you all appreciated the quiet neighborhood. The massage chair does seem to be a hit with customers when they give it a chance. Lol Thank you for staying at Moonlight Haven, much appreciated. Also, thank you for the great review! Take care. Sincerely, Judy Mooney
No complaints from our employees who stayed at this rental.
Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry I did not respond sooner. The system has changed and I was not aware of its arrival. 8 ) I am happy to hear there were no complaints from your employee's. Take care.

Haven for Our Grief
My three grown sons and I stayed three nights at Moonlight Haven in a quiet, safe neighborhood while we were in town for my fiance's Memorial Service. Judy welcomed my little dachshund and arranged baby gates for us to use if we wanted to keep her in the kitchen area while we were at the actual service.We hung out in the living room together, and each of us also had our own quaint, homey bedroom to retreat to because the family room worked as a private sleeping room as well.I used the shower in the bathtub and it had excellent water pressure. My bed was soft and cozy.I took photos of some of the gorgeous flowers in the front and back fenced yards.We were in short walking distance to a great Mexican Restaurant ,Coffee Drive Thru, and best of all-the soothing river bike/walk path.It turned out the home was a mere 3 miles from the church where the memorial was held, and one mile from my fiance's daughter's home.For all of these reasons, I felt like there was divine intervention assisting me in finding this haven on VRBO on such short notice to meet our needs so well.
I am so glad you felt some divine intervention at Moonlight Haven. I was happy to welcome all of you, along with your fur baby too. So glad you found comfort and so happy you did get to enjoy the bike path! So sorry about the reason for your need to be up here though. I hope you are doing well. I would say please come back but as I have mentioned to you, my house is now going up for sale. Thank you
so very much for being a customer at Moonlight Haven. Please take care.
Sincerely, Judy Mooney
Convenient and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay at Moonlight Haven. It was a short walk from the wonderful river trail, and the neighborhood was charming and very quiet, yet just minutes from downtown Eugene. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and we all enjoyed time in the massage chair. The backyard was completely fenced, so we didn't have to worry about our pup at all. There was a nice enclosed area out back where we could sit, even in the rain. Ms. Mooney was very available to answer the few questions we had. All in all a wonderful introduction to Eugene, and a very cozy spot.
Hello Molerja, 8 )
Thank you very much for your kind words and appreciation! The massage chair does seem to usually be a big hit! Lol That's why I chose that as my feature picture. I am so glad you got to experience walking the short distance to the bike path. One of my favorite things about that location, also the very peaceful, mellow neighborhood. I am also happy to be of service when needed and possible. The back patio, safe and dog friendly backyard are just more of the things I thought customers might really enjoy, rain or shine. Thank you so much for staying, enjoying and finding it comfortable and convient. Spacious rooms are always a plus in my book, along with king size beds. Also it's great to know this helped make for a wonderful introduction to Eugene, my favorite place in the world. 8 ) Please come back to Moonlight Haven again! Take care.
Sincerely, Judy Mooney
Moonlight is a dream come true!
Wonderful house! Quiet location but close to everything. Owners are terrific to work with!
Thank you very much for the excellent review! I am so happy to hear that you and your family found the house to be wonderful. I am also glad you found the neighborhood to be quiet yet close to everything. You all were great to work with also, and it is always appreciated by me, for sure! Thank you for staying at Moonlight Haven! Please come back again. Take care.
Sincerely, Judy Mooney
I would say check out the Willamette River bike path. There are a couple of restaurants that sit next to the river for a beautiful scenic dining experience! One is McMenamins North Bank located at 22 Club Road Eugene, and the other is Sweetwaters on the River at Valley River Inn located at 1000 Valley River Way.
