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 also has a queen 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.

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 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.

Look no further, I am serious. We have stayed in vrbo's from east coast to West, north to south over 15 years. This includes several in Eugene. Here is what I will say, the beds are incredible, the house has a warmth and charm that has to be experienced to understand. The craftsmanship in the woodwork and architecture is incredible. Every detail is to period of the houses building date, yet totally comfortable and functional. The owner, Eve, is the best corresponder as an owner I have ever dealt with. She is totally available while being completely invisible. We come to Eugene 3 -4 times yearly to visit our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. This will be my first choice and would likely rearrange trip dates to stay here. As an old commercial said, "try it, you"ll like it". SMoody

Very nice craftsman style home

A very nice and quiet home. It was in a great location and easy to get around from the house.

Even though we were here during bad weather we were still able to sit on the wonderful front porch, occasionally.

We would stay here again and have a place to come to for some down time after an exciting college day.
