Charming mother-in-law cottage in the historic Whiteaker neighborhood. Nestled in a lovely private flower garden, the Cottage provides a serene retreat and is centrally located among the best restaurants, breweries and wineries in Eugene.
The house is set back from an eclectic urban neighborhood and the space can be surprisingly quiet for being in the middle of this active area of Eugene. At times, you may hear music and or neighborhood festivities. My goal is to make your visit to Eugene an enjoyable one, providing you with a restful, serene and secure home away from home.
Tall ceilings and windows in every room fill this 450 sq foot charming cottage with light and a sense of spaciousness. The bedroom features a mahogany queen size sleigh bed with a pillow top mattress, luxury linens and a down comforter. The view from the bedroom looks out onto the flower garden and private fenced yard.
There is a living area with seating for two, suede sitting bench, and a HDTV with established ROKU and Netflix accounts for streaming TV and movies. Additionally there is a HDMI cord for guests to stream movies or shows from a laptop. Relax and unwind in this quaint setting that includes a writer's desk and a fully-stocked kitchen. Everything you need to create a gourmet meal can be found in the kitchen.
Garden settings and nooks surround the cottage, provide a tranquil and beautiful outdoor space to enjoy. There is a Craftsman rental home on the property, and there is substantial privacy between the home and cottage. If you are looking to host family or friends for a special event or holiday, both the house and cottage may be rented together.
The house and cottage are located behind a tall fence with mature trees and vegetation, creating a sense of privacy from an active neighborhood. The cottage is located behind the main property. Walking around the right of the main house, you'll arrive at the cottage.
The property is centrally located in the heart of the historic Whiteaker neighborhood, providing easy access to the best restaurants, breweries, wineries and music venues. The thriving urban Whiteaker neighborhood is close to the Willamette River, UO, Autzen Stadium, 5th Street Market, and the restaurant district.
Named for Oregon's first Governor, the historic Whiteaker is considered Eugene's most eclectic neighborhood. Entrepreneurs have established popular venues in this neighborhood to share their culinary, musical, brewing and wine making talents. Most recently, the Whiteaker has become identified as Eugene's brewery district. Several craft breweries, including Ninkasi, Hop Valley, Oakshire and Falling Sky are located within a few blocks of one another. Recently earning accolades from Esquire magazine as one of America's best bars, Sam Bond's Garage is an iconic night spot showcasing regional musicians on an almost-nightly basis. The Whiteaker neighborhood is best for folks who have a tolerance for human diversity, and do not mind occasional interactions with transients. The neighborhood is safe, but a touch more exhilarating than typical surburbia.
A mix of commercial and residential structures, enjoy the serenity of the cottage or walk in any direction from the cottage to enjoy this up and coming eccentric historic district of Eugene!
The gorgeous Willamette River is only a few blocks away and easily accessed by walking 10 minutes north of the cottage. Enjoy an evening stroll along the Willamette River or go for a run, bicycle ride or walk along this gorgeous river that runs through the town of Eugene.
