About the Owner

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. I love being a host, providing a beautiful home and garden for others to experience and feel at home during their visit to Eugene. I love meeting interesting and friendly people and I look forward to hosting you!

Wonderful home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. It's in a great location and walking distance to restaurants and shops. Beautifully decorated with lots of great seating areas and a nice table outside next to a fresh fig tree. The owner was very helpful and accommodating - we would definitely stay here again!

adorable and conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

The house is super cute and was in immaculate condition! The midcentury furnishings were right up our alley! The house's location is convenient to quite a few cool things: definitely visit the New Frontier Market one block away. Eve recommended Tacovore which was fantastic and we also hit up Laughing Planet for a healthy and delicious meal after a day of hiking (though we started at Sweet Life Patisserie before the hike for some amazing pastries)! We walked downtown to the Hult Center for an outdoor concert--not having to find parking was a bonus.

Some other pluses about the house: it was well stocked with basic kitchen and bath necessities and the backyard was private and beautifully landscaped. The only downside would be the studio house that is located right outside the back door and while Eve was staying there during our visit it might be awkward to have other guest renting it and being so close.

Overall I would recommend this house. It was very clean and convenient for doing things in town as well as close to area vineyards, U of O, and other Oregon sights.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My daughter wants to convert into a full time rental during the UofO school year. Comfy beds. Would be nice to have a place in front of house that was ours to park.

Owner's Response: Heather, I am pleased you and your daughter enjoyed Jackson Star as a home! I am sorry to hear you did not have a parking space directly in front of the Star. There are 3 parking spaces directly in front of house, so parking is typical calmly not an issue. Thanks! Eve

Adorable and cozy bungalow perfectly suited our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Jackson Star was the perfect place for our family of 5 to stay during graduation weekend. All rooms and beds were comfortable, and we had all we needed under one roof. Eve was the perfect host, and incredibly hospitable from the moment we booked the stay. Would recommend highly to anyone looking for a place in Eugene, with ideal walking distance to local restaurants and breweries!

The cottage was so cute. Very tidy and clean with a welcoming feel. It was stocked well with everything you would need. Cute garden to relax in at the end of the day. Eve was so wonderful to work with: responsive and courteous. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat!

From the Owner

The moment I walked in to this house, I loved it and could see the potential to create a beautiful home for vacationers, and thus the creation of Jackson Star began! The craftsmanship is of high quality and it is obvious the house has been well-cared for over the years. I loved the floor plan on the main level and the loft is truly dreamy on a clear evening with the stars and moon visible from the bedroom window in the loft. The art studio behind the house has a gorgeous view of the trees and flowers that characterize the neighborhood. The neighborhood is full of great restaurants, markets and bakeries all within walking distance . Serene. Beautiful. Peaceful. Great neighbors!
