- english, spanish
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 enjoy meeting new people and sharing the points of interest around town and I am very respectful of privacy. I like to provide an experience that complements the guest' interest for their time here, so I am happy to interact as it suits the guests. I am usually available by email, phone or text when I am out of town and not present on the property to meet guests.
Eve purchased this House in 2009
Why Eve chose Whiteaker
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 House unique
The cottage offers a private retreat set among beautiful landscaping and gardens. The cottage is set within the historic Whiteaker neighborhood, offering some of the best restaurants and music venues within only a block or two from the house.

This cottage is 5 min. from our sons coffee shop, so the location for us couldn't have been more convenient. Thanks for providing such a comfortable space to come back to each night. We had a little trouble finding the front gate on very dark nights. Our one suggestion is to have better lights along the stone path leading you to the back cottage.
I am glad you enjoyed the Cottage! Eugene doesn’t have many street lights, so it can be dark in the evening. It’s good to use the flashlight feature on your phone to help locate the entry gate. Thank you for the suggestion to increase the number of lights along the foot path.
A bit difficult to find in the dark we arrived around 9pm. Ince we located the property it was very comfortable.
I spent 5 weeks while looking for a home to buy...had chosen this place because of the charming garden photo, and was not disappointed. Something was blooming at all times, and the raised beds provided several dinner salads.
My only concern had been the proximity to the train tracks, as I am a very light sleeper but miraculously, I never heard the train whistle once I was asleep. The bed was extremely comfortable. All in all, the cottage helped me relax during a rather stressful time. I won't have to, but I would stay there again ;-)
Feels like home.
This house was instantly comfortable for our recent visit to Eugene. A perfect holiday retreat for my husband and I as we visited our two sons, who both attend U of O. The woodwork is warm and charming, the kitchen has everything needed to cook for a family, and the porch and yard are welcoming. Eve is easy to communicate with, and took care of everything quickly and easily. We will be back to stay again soon.
Great central location
We walked or biked everywhere when we stayed - stores, restaurants, the river trail, downtown. Great little cottage.
Very nice place to stay.
The cottage and adjoining back yard was a really delightful way to enjoy Eugene, Many great pubs and restaurants within walking distance. We will come back.
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.
This beautiful Cottage is located in the Whiteaker neighborhood; a thriving, up and coming, eclectic and artistic area of Eugene offering some of the best restaurants (Grit, Mame', Izaka Meiji, Tacovore, Pizza Research Institute), a popular music venue (Sam Bond's Garage), natural food store (Red Barn), award-winning bakery Sweet Life Patisserie, Ninkasi Brewery and Territorial Winery. Also located nearby is the 5th Street Market, an upscale shopping center with boutiques, fine dining, movie theatre and more. The house is located 5 blocks from the beautiful Willamette River and bike path that extends along the river. The University of Oregon campus is nearby, and easily accessible by bike along the bike path or by car.
