Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful cottage, very well appointed with everything we needed. We were only two doors down from our daughters house, perfect location. Easy to get to everything. A beautiful home! The only thing for us was the bed was a wee bit hard, not what we were used to, but everything else was perfect!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback on the bed. I have been wondering if I should get a topper but hadn't any comments before. I'm off to Bed Bath and you know! freya

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had never tried a VRBO previously. This was a perfect alternative to a hotel. Our daughter is a freshman at OSU and we wanted to be able to provide a little more of a "home" away from home for her while we visited. We had a more comfortable place to stay, and were able to prepare our own meals. The cottage was warm, cozy and very well appointed. Quiet and peaceful inside and out.

Artistic and Comfortable Home, Beautifully Landscaped

  • 5 of 5

Freya's home was a delight to spend three nights in. And it was a great place to entertain our daughter and her family. The house is full of interesting artwork, and the front and backyards are comfortable and beautifully landscaped. All of this made for a comfy, stimulating visit, and we left renewed and eager to return next year. Five stars all the way!

Absolutely darling, a true gem!

  • 5 of 5

Freya's house was a perfect home base for our daughter's recent graduation from OSU. It is darling, cozy yet roomy, friendly, welcoming and decorated beautifully. It was appointed with everything we needed and Freya was very friendly and accommodating, and quickly provided a cooler and extra chairs for our small afternoon backyard BBQ celebration. The master bedroom, twin bedroom and sun porch pullout bed accommodated four of us comfortably for multiple nights. We enjoyed morning coffee on the front porch surrounded by pots overflowing with beautiful flowers. We feel so fortunate that a cancellation allowed us to stay in this incredible home. We loved it and would definitely stay here again!

Artistic, charming, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Freya's house is a joy. She has a real talent for design and decorating and has created a beautiful haven on her big lot just outside the downtown area of Corvallis. I enjoyed my time at the desk in the sunroom doing computer work I had to catch up on. Wireless is perfect. No TV but that was fine and we used a computer to stream Netflix one lazy night. The house is surprisingly quiet and private for being in an older subdivision: the front porch was our favorite spot, looking out over the sweet front yard and its lovely landscaping. Beds were comfy, kitchen well equipped for our needs. All in all, a very pleasant respite from travel and a convenient location for exploring the area.
