About Owner / Property Manager

Two University of Oregon professors with two children splitting time between town and country.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Eugene

We travel a lot so I was looking for a property where I would want to stay if I were on vacation or live in the house permanently. Upon stepping into this house it was clear that the place met this criteria. The previous owners, planning to retire there, did a wonderful job of updating this 1970s home with all new carpet, stone flooring, counter tops and kitchen appliances. We added furniture and decor that matched the quality of the remodel rather than simply filling space with second-hand furniture. Our family spends time in the house as well so we understand it's attractions and aesthetics. We envision this as a comfortable and convenient place for guest to enjoy the many events and activities the Eugene area has to offer including world class Tack and Field, easy access to the coast and mountains, great local food and magnificent music such as the Bach Festival.

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and surroundings set in the forest! Everything you need is there. Very comfy beds. Only drawback is the steep staircase to all the bedrooms downstairs. And, the master shower is very slippery, but wonderful with two shower heads! Great house for a family.

Beautiful home, easy check-in and check-out, toys for kids!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our extended family to stay together (5 adults, 2 kids, 1 toddler). Beautifully decorated and well maintained. Our favorite surprise was the toy car ramps in the closet. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great location. Comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and overall comfort of the home. It did not appear to be well cleaned, but it was good enough. Master bed not very comfortable. Kitchen well stocked but could use more pots/pans/lids. Highway noise is very noticeable with windows open. But it is still a very comfortable house in a great location and we would stay again.

Peace and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Recently returned from Eugene for a conference. The house was clean, quiet, and spacious. The one downfall was having to check out to report to the hotel for the conference. If I travel to Eugene again I will make the house home base for my entire stay!

Beautiful area, neighborhood and comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the VRBO. Spacious and comfortable, Plenty of room for the four of us and a dog. Close to town and restaurants. No traffic anywhere we went for the 6 day stay. Everything was pretty clean. Laundry room was very nice as we are on our on way to Yellowstone before we return to KY.

Stairs leading to bedrooms are the kind you want to hold on to the railing. You get use to them after a few days. We did not cook but everything you would need is there.

The bed in the master was harder than we are use to but after two days we fine. The one was one thing that surprised us all. The back of many of the chairs were sticky-like they needed to be cleaned with a product that did not leave a sticky residue. This was the had backed chairs-not the cloth ones.

I would definitely come back

Restful

  • 5 of 5

The House was perfect for our family. We had a member at River Bend hospital for 6 days. Family members came and went, and the home provided an excellent overnight stop for all. It was just like staying at home, only it was away from home and better.

Loved the location, just like living in a forest.

We are located just south of the University of Oregon, Hayward Field, Autzen Stadium, Matt Knight Arena, the Hult Center and downtown Eugene. As track fans (we participate in Masters Track competitions) and supporters of the arts, we especially look forward to hosting guests for track and field championships and the Oregon Bach Festival. The home is located near miles of hiking trails, parks and recreation areas as well as all the amenities of this university town. If you stay with us you will also be an hour from the beach and Willamette Pass. If you're interested in fishing, running, or birding, we have some excellent suggestions and local contacts.
