Great property. Has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and very convenient place to stay in Corvallis. It has everything you need. The fantastic and fully equipped kitchen was a real plus for me as I like to eat healthy which requires real cooking. Freya is extremely accommodating. Bus travel is excellent from this location and an easy enjoyable walk to the food coop, town center and gorgeous river walk/park. I recommend this property for long or short stays. We stayed a month and loved every minute of our stay. It really felt like home from the start.

Great place to stay near Oregon State University

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed there on a busy weekend and I wished I could have stayed longer. Nicely decorated home on a quiet street. Looking forward to staying there again.

Enjoyed our stay--planning to return!

  • 5 of 5

Freya's cottage was a perfect home base for us (semi-retired couple) during our recent stay in Corvallis to visit family nearby. The house is charmingly decorated and feels warm and welcoming. Our granddaughters (ages 8 and 11) spent one night with us and enjoyed the pullout sofa bed in the sunroom. They had fun playing in the yard and are looking forward to visiting us there in warmer weather, when they can take greater advantage of the backyard tetherball and the sheepherder's wagon (the weather was a little chilly and rainy during our October stay). We didn't mind the lack of a TV, in fact found it restful. Many good books on hand for all ages including younger children. The wifi worked fine and we used our laptops for Netflix and DVD viewing. Easy walk to a nice natural foods grocery store. Located in a quiet part of town near an appealing park with play equipment. Freya was a gracious host and readily available by text if we needed anything (which we didn't--she had thought of everything). Altogether a pleasant stay and a place we hope to return to next summer.

Beautiful, eclectic home!

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Freya's cottage and wished I had been able to stay longer. It's beautifully and uniquely decorated with comfortable and eclectic pieces - every room of the cottage felt immediately welcoming, even though I arrived in the rain. It has a warm, Santa Fe vibe. Freya was welcoming and informative yet gave me the privacy to go forward and explore Corvallis. Every possible comfort of a home was present whether it be a wonderful bedroom with great mattress and bed linens, a beautiful bathroom and a wonderful enclosed sunroom area to relax/read or just quietly meditate. The kitchen felt so comfortable with most any cookware you would need. I'm a light sleeper and the neighborhood was absolutely quiet and peaceful. The windows didn't have the blackout shades or curtains that I would have liked but I was there for just 1 night so it was OK. If you're in Corvallis or vicinity, this is the cottage to rent!

Charming, cozy, and perfect for family.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for 2.5 months when we had our first child, so extended family could stay there. This worked out perfectly! Our parents and siblings had plenty of room, without making our house crowded.

Freya, the house owner, is very inviting and made the whole process easy.

The house is very cozy/warm. Freya, has decorated it very nicely. I typically don't pay attention to the whole "Feng shui" thing, but it really works in this house! Our parents all said they got excellent sleep and my father hammered through several books, partly due to the relaxed atmosphere of the place. We would often have family dinners at the house, using the neat old oven.

In short, if you are like us and need a long-term rental property (or, even a short relaxing stay) in the Corvallis area, this is a perfect solution.

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My visit to Corvallis is an annual retreat. I go for peace and quiet, exercise and restful nights. This charming bungalow, eclectic cottage decor and gardens were perfect surroundings for me. The home was spotless, and I had everything I needed - most especially the peace and quiet. The house is within walking distance to Willamette Park, where I enjoyed jogging the dirt trails and being able to see the river from openings along the path. I had a wonderfully restorative and peaceful retreat and hope to return again soon.
