Amazon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Master Suite, sleeps up to 4, private patio.

Just one mile from the University of Oregon, Meadow View is perfect for visiting the U of O. So close to campus yet in a lovely, quiet residential neighborhood. The Meadow View property is across from a beautiful oak savanna which 50 years ago was the back 9 holes of Laurelwood Golf Course and today is undeveloped parkland. The street is one lane and dead ends 6 doors from Meadow View where the the city's Ribbon Trail system, a jewel for runners and walkers, begins. In addition to its close proximity to the University, Meadow View is just minutes from the Matthew Knight Arena, Hayward Field, Hendricks Park, restaurants and downtown.

Bright and spacious, the master suite is newly remodeled with a clean, modern feel. With a private entrance and private patio area, you will feel like you are in your own retreat while you are a guest at Meadow View. The cottage is a few steps away at the upper level of the property featuring a full kitchen, vaulted ceiling and skylights. Guests who have stayed there have described it as private, quiet and cozy and it has gotten rave reviews over the years.

You'll find the kitchen supplied with the makings for a basic breakfast - organic fruit, yogurt, granola, oatmeal, coffee and a variety of teas. Prepare these at your leisure and enjoy breakfast on the front patio if you wish.

Relax and enjoy our 'front 40', the oak savanna, good walks in the woods leading into Hendricks Park. There are maps available of the trail system and more, allowing you to get out and explore all that Eugene and Lane County have to offer.

One recent guest said: 'Loved the location and ease of getting around from this beautiful neighborhood to the university campus. After spending time hiking, visiting, shopping and of course, eating at the great local restaurants, I came back to a delightful and peaceful place to rest. The owner was gracious and attentive and I felt welcomed and cared for through the many thoughtful touches she has provided both indoors and outdoors. Will return again!'

About Dralyn Van Ness

I am a long time Eugene resident and now an empty nester. I love this home, especially the gorgeous location and enjoy sharing it with visitors. I love being able to walk out my door and have a good hike through grassy knolls, fern and fir forests and sun-dappled oaks. I like to share the beauty and tranquility of this site and offer it to you for your fun and pleasure.

Mom setting up daughter in her first house for year two of college

I knew before I arrived that I would be most content because Dralyn made herself so easy to reach, giving me her cell and email address right off the bat. She then contacted me on the day I would be arriving to pre-welcome me and ask if I needed anything. When I was late arriving, past her bedtime, she kept the lights on for me and made sure I felt comfortable getting to her place. The master suite was just the right fit, with a clean and comfortable feel. Dralyn helped me find numerous shops and restaurants yet never hunted me down....I kept hunting her down. She was easy to talk to, professional and comfortable all at once, as was her home. The trails RIGHT outside her front door, located on a very quiet street, were a much appreciated was the tree swing that this 50 year old enjoyed each day. Thank you for making a potentially stressful four day visit a fun one. My daughter and I did a lot of laughing!

Beautiful studio in park setting

  • 5 of 5

The studio apt was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Dralyn was very accommodating to any requests like decaf coffee and ice cubes and left yogurt, granola and fruit for breakfast. She also offered a late check out since her cleaning person wasn't coming until the next day which we really appreciated.

Home was next to Hendricks Park and we hiked great trails and picked wild blackberries. Lovely private garden outside our front door.

Would highly recommend staying here. There's also a separate smaller cottage.
