Overview

About the property

Gorgeous and charming 2 bedroom, 1 bath Craftsman in beautiful setting.

A 1914 charming Craftsman home offering a cozy and peaceful ambiance. The home features a large living and dining room filled with natural light and tasteful antique furniture. An open floor plan extends the ambiance from the living room into the dining room. The dining room has an antique sofa and period chandelier for the optimal dining room setting.

There are two bedrooms with a walk through bathroom. The space is warm, ideal for two people and comfortable with four. The master bedroom has a queen size comfortable pillowtop mattress with luxury linens, down comforter and bathrobes. The guest room has a full size bed with a memory foam mattress, luxury linens and bathrobes.

The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to support the preparation of a gourmet meal. Enjoy your gourmet meal on the front porch, a beautiful setting with a dining area framed by beautiful trees and flowers. The 'dining room' on the front porch provides the perfect spot for morning or evening dining.

Creating beautiful interior and exterior spaces is a passion of mine, and the gardens that surround this home delight the senses. Garden beds are planted with fruits, vegetables and herbs, and guests are encouraged to harvest from the garden.

The house is set back from an active neighborhood and the space is surprisingly quiet. When you are ready to explore the historic Whiteaker neighborhood, there are many appealing options for dining, sampling craft beers and wines or hearing music within walking distance.

A separate rental cottage is located behind the house, and both the house and cottage are private, noise-free spaces. Together, the house and cottage are comfortable for up to 7 people, and both are available as vacation rentals, if you are looking to host your family or friends for a special event or holiday.

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.

A mix of commercial and residential structures, enjoy the serenity of the Craftsman or walk in any direction to enjoy this 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 Craftsman. 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.

About Eve

Engaging, friendly host interested in people and creative endeavors. I spend my time running a local non-profit organization that protects and enhances land and water through collaborative processes, research, design and habitat restoration efforts. I also have a business in interior design, creating beautiful and comfortable living spaces for myself and others. I have established the gardens around the home to create a peaceful, beautiful setting with the hope of providing an oasis for guests to relax into and enjoy.

Eve purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Eve chose Eugene

I love the architecture of the old homes in the Whiteaker neighborhood. There are a lot of trees that surround many of the homes in this area, creating a sense of nature among the architectural aesthetic I enjoy. The neighborhood is also lively with a mix of people from many facets of life, providing diversity and a sense of community.

What makes this bungalow unique

Serene oasis very close to the excitement of the Whiteaker neighborhood. Walking distance to the beautiful Willamette River, many restaurants, breweries and wineries.

Delightful sanctuary in the city

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you step through the gate, the privacy of the garden makes you feel removed from the city. Not far from various breweries and wine tasting rooms, we were able to experience local culture and well as spend some nurturing time at the property reposing in the lovely spaces (garden, porch, and inside). Well-cared for, this home will provide everything you need for a comfortable stay. In addition, a garden outside was for our consumption with everything from herbs, berries, lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers. How thoughtful! My only suggestion: a salad spinner for the kitchen. Otherwise, the stay was simply perfect!

Eve was a gracious host and her attention to detail is prevalent throughout the property.

Perfect for exploring Eugene

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and meticulously maintained little house that is located walking (less than a mile) distance to downtown Eugene and much closer to lots of great eateries in the neighborhood - It is also close to the river for walking and biking. Eve was a wonderful hostess and ensured we had everything we needed.

A Zen Experience I highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Eve has thought of everything in this charming 1914 Craftsman home. It's beautifully decorated and her garden and front porch make for a totally Zen experience. She's left candles all over that can be lite to light up your evening with glowing brilliance.

There is an old receiver where you can plug in your phone or iPad and enjoy your own relaxing music. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for your stay. The memory foam beds are so relaxing and make it difficult to get up in the morning. We did not miss having TV. The neighborhood is so interesting and very "Eugene" like. I'm not sure if there was central air conditioning because it was a little cool when we were there. We would definitely stay here again.

Cozy, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

The place was welcoming, comfortable furniture, and a well equipped kitchen, which is a must for us. Having a store within a block was great, as well as some great restaurants and entertainment. The front porch was AWESOME.

1 thing kept this from being a 5 for us....The beds. I noticed a comment from a previous traveler who mentioned this. The beds are not queen, they are double, or full. My husband and I are about 6 ft and a maybe 20 lbs over what would be considered optimal weight. The two of us could not fit in either bed together. (smaller people may not have this issue, lol!) The bed in the back bedroom is VERY soft. It appears to be a new mattress, and would sleep one person just fine. When we were both on it, it sunk way in to the middle, and we were quite uncomfortable. The bed in the front bedroom was comfortable, just too small for us. Beds are pretty important to us when choosing a place to stay, and we scan reviews for info in this area because a poor nights sleep can harsh your vacation groove.

Owner's Response: I encourage folks interested in this Craftsman to read through the reviews to determine how most guests have enjoyed the beds. The master bedroom features a queen size bed (60"wide X 80" long) with a new memory foam temperapedic mattress. The 2nd bedroom features a full bed (54" wide X 75" long) with a pillow top therapeutic mattress. Homes built in the early 1900's have smaller rooms than modern-day homes. I hope you will come to enjoy this lovely 1914 Craftsman home.

Quaint craftsman cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at this charming old craftsman cottage. The kitchen is well-equipped with cooking utensils and nonperishable sundries, the beds were comfy, and the living room is tastefully decorated with a bookshelf full of interesting reads. The private front porch area was the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine in the evenings. The cottage is located in the colorful Whiteaker area, and is within walking distance to several fun coffee shops, restaurants, and breweries. Eve and her property manager were both incredibly helpful and accommodating - I would highly recommend this place!
