About this listing

Beautiful, luxurious craftsman-style studio cottage. Comfortably sleeps 2-3. Full kitchen, WiFi, cable, HD TV. Quiet, private College Hill location, close to UO & downtown. Relax by the gas fireplace or on the private patio. Off-street parking.

The space

Immaculate craftsman-style Cottage on the Kerns-Chase property. The Kerns-Chase House, listed on the historic register, is one of the original turn of the century homes on College Hill. In place of the former dilapidated carriage house, now stands an adorable cottage designed and built by the owners under an historic alteration permit. Newly constructed in period detail, the 430 square foot cottage is beautifully decorated, with 9 ft ceilings, picture rail and maple hard-wood floors. The gorgeous interior was hand-crafted by Greg in clear fir trim and built-in cabinetry, with incorporated full length mirror. The clear fir was sourced from recycled Pacific Northwest high school bleacher seats! Don't worry, we removed the gum from the bottom before milling it. Luxurious queen-size bed on solid hand-made maple platform frame. An additional, comfortable full sized futon couch/bed for one more adult or two children. Soft, comfortable, quality cotton sheets and bedding. Fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, dishwasher, microwave and gas range. Cozy gas fireplace. Tiled glass shower. Tankless water heater for unlimited hot showers. Washer/dryer. This studio was designed, created and outfitted with guest visitors in mind. If you are looking for something special, this is it!

Guest access

The cottage has wifi for your use. 39" HD TV with Comcast cable channels. Sony Blu-ray/DVD player for watching DVD's and accessing your Netflix/Hulu/Youtube, etc. Bring your username and passwords to access these features. The Cottage has it's own washer/dryer. A private patio with outdoor seating overlooking the garden. Adjacent off-street parking for our guests.

Interaction with guests

We live on the property in the original Kerns-Chase house, and will be available to help you get settled and answer any questions you may have.

Rule #1: relax and enjoy yourself! Beyond that... NO PETS please, inside or out. NO SMOKING inside the Cottage or outside on the property. NO ILLEGAL DRUGS. NO VAPING or SMOKING marijuana in any form, medical or otherwise... Please do not use our good white towels to remove make-up. (If you need towels for that purpose, let us know and we will provide some.) It's okay to have a guest or two over to visit, but the space is not suited to more than that. To protect the beautiful wood floors we ask that you please remove your shoes; if it's a hardship for you we understand. Please let us know if you need the Futon. We will happily set it up for you and provide bedding. Please do not try to set the Futon up yourselves! It is a bit complicated and we do not want it to get broken. No bikes inside please; we provide a place to lock bikes outside if needed. Please maintain quiet between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am. Thanks so much!

Jane and Greg are the perfect hosts -- there if you need anything, but not intrusive and very respectful of your privacy. The cottage is exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is very quiet and having your own off street parking spot is great. It will be my first choice in accommodations whenever I visit Eugene.

This is a lovely cozy cottage. It is beautifully decorated and well equipped. The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to cook meals and bake cookies as well! There is a nice, big-screen TV. The neighborhood is very pretty and close to University of Oregon's campus. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Jane & Greg's cottage is a perfect place to stay in Eugene. It is charming, in a great location, and impeccably clean/comfortable. Having your own personal parking spot right outside the front door of the cottage makes staying here extremely convenient. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Eugene.

Sweet, well-appointed, urban cottage in a great neighborhood! The first day we left the car in the driveway and explored Eugene completely on foot, including the Owen Rose Garden and Skinner Butte Lookout. The next day we toured 25 miles of the covered bridge bike trail in Cottage Grove. The Willamette Valley offers gorgeous opportunities for active exploration, and some great little wineries. Jane and Greg were attentive and instructional in communicating prior to arrival. Their little cabin was the perfect in-town getaway, and within walking distance of breweries!

Too perfect. Brand new studio apartment close to downtown. Bed, gas fireplace, queen bed, washer, all perfect. From what I was told Greg built it and did an amazing job. Jane communicated everything and sent a document with all the details. Together they are a great team!

Jane & Greg User ProfileJane & Greg is a superhost.

Jane is from England, and in her youth chose a trip to America over a used, red Triumph Spitfire. Greg grew up in Texas, but departed to seek his fortune at the earliest legal opportunity. We met on a windsurfing trip in Baja, Mexico in 1990. We later flew to Baja in Greg's Cessna to get married there, bound for better or worse by Mexican civil law. We removed the back seats of the aircraft, and stashed mountain bikes and camping gear in their place. We still go back every winter to kite-board at our casita in La Ventana. We have two daughters, adopted from China five years (URL HIDDEN) international family!
