The space

We offer a comfortable main floor bedroom, adjacent to a full bathroom. In addition, we recently remodeled a large daylight basement room. (We may be able to also offer some additional bedrooms if needed for a special situation)

We share our home with Rosie, a gentle golden retriever.

The neighborhood

Close to everything, yet it feels like a respite in the forest! The beautiful Wayne Morse Family Farm (previously known as the Morse Ranch) is just up the street at the end of the next block and offers some very nice walking trails. There are many restaurants, bakeries, cafes and other shops in walking distance too!

Eugene has exceptional bus service for a city our size. The nearest bus stop is just over a block away on Willamette Street. Several routes go down the street. If you have a car, there is safe free parking in front of the house.

House Rules

Be cheerful! We don't expect you to experience any problems, but if you do be sure to let us know and give us a chance to resolve them! Enjoy your stay!

If you have a car please park on the street in front of the house. It really should be safe. If you are nervous because of something valuable in the car (including a bicycle) it's OK to bring it in -- we have lots of storage space available.

The house is on a quiet street and the room is in the basement enough room to sleep three (two in a queen size bed and we brought a blow up mattress). The hosts offered us food and drink and friendly conversation. They and their dog Rosie were very welcoming.

Richie and Linda were excellent hosts, generous and enjoyable to talk and socialize with. The entire group and I found their house relaxing, and a comfortable place to stay. I am so glad we were able to stay there and I highly recommend the destination to anyone.

Richie was an enthusiastic host, and was flexible in meeting my group's housing needs for several nights. The house is in a great neighborhood, walking distance to a great park and a small shopping center with a supermarket. Richie was fun to talk to but we also had plenty of privacy. Great espresso!

Richie & Linda were incredibly wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful home & welcomed us in as if we were friends. They have a beautiful back yard & live in a nice neighborhood. This is the first time we stayed in a room in someone's home & I have to say that Richie & Linda set the bar really high as hosts. I would definitely recommend their little bit of paradise.
