The space

Secluded suite sleeps three with additional guest beds available. The charming casita room has twin beds covered with quilts that carry out the theme of the room. Adjacent to this bedroom is a bathroom with shower. In the separate sun/sleeping porch is a single bed. The bath is shared. Sleeping accommodations may be rented individually. The entire suite may be rented for exclusive use at an additional cost. The cost for the exclusive use of the suite is $250.

This suite was designed by Percy Bentley, a well-known Oregon architect, probably in the late 1930s or 1940s. As with most of the house this area has been restored little by little.

Our house is not a new house; it is an old house. Spots and blemishes are part of the aging process. We have not attempted to take this house into being brand new. We have respected the wrinkles it has gained over time. Styles and fashions have changed, but we have remained true to the essence of an old family home, in this instance a home that included what was probably a rumpus room complete with space for a juke box.

Now much of our folk art collection is in this space. It is not a house for minimalists.

Windows and balcony open onto wooded acreage where deer and raccoon track their paths. Yet, from here you can walk to Autzen Stadium, Hendricks Park (Eugene's oldest park encompassing 78 acres of mature forest), Hayward Field and Matthew Knight Arena. This location is perfect for extended stays, UO game weekends, athletic events, and/or for families visiting students on campus.

Bedroom with twin beds $140. for two persons; $185. for three persons with single bed in sun/sleeping porch; $250. for exclusive use of entire unit including 400 square foot living area and vintage kitchenette. $45 per night for additional guests above three persons. Sun/sleeping porch is available as additional sleeping accommodation for other parties unless the entire suite is rented for exclusive use ($250). December through April three night minimum.

While it is sometimes possible to accept last minute reservations, generally we prefer to have at least a day in advance notice at a minimum

This space is not appropriate for young children.

Other things to note

Airbnb was conceived as a way for hosts to welcome guests into their home. Over the years more commercial ventures have used this platform to simply make empty rentals available.I understand that this is what some people are more comfortable with; however, I hope that the full description on our site makes it clear that we believe in the original concept of Airbnb.

What a delightful visit we had! The vintage Tudor style home simply oozed history, love, family, and Mexican folk art. Our host, and her family, could not have been more welcoming and engaging. Breakfast was an elegant surprise and delicious as well. We were treated like family and I would return for a stay in a heartbeat. Thank you, thank you, Karen!

We stayed at Karen's listing for one night. We really enjoyed our stay. The view is fantastic, and the house is an architectural gem. The decor is eclectic and interesting, reflecting Karen's interest in travel and politics. I'd recommend it for couples, a group of friends or families with older children, but this listing is not for toddlers or young children.

Response from Karen:
Thank you Tiffany. It is always wonderful to get a 5 star review from an Airbnb host. And I agree with you; "this listing is not for toddlers or young children." With our many floors, staircases, balconies, art and antiques this is not the place for children who need diligent supervision.

Great stay, very warm and welcoming. I would recommend for anyone coming to the Eugene area. Great location, beautiful Tudor home, you can't beat it.

Lovely experience; the privacy of the suite allowed us to have a traveling cousin visit us after the game. Karen immediately offered us wine from her wine party (Elizabeth Chambers Cellars) earlier in the day.

This was my first time using airbnb and I can say the experience could not have been better. First off, the home is amazing! Fantastic architecture, art collection and location. Secondly, Karen was a fantastic host. She is very kind and was able to answer all of the questions we had while staying there. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking and I will certainly look to book with her in the future.

Beautiful neighborhood with trees and vines. We had no idea that area was in Eugene. Hostess had our room ready and welcomed us at the door.

Avid readers, writers, art collectors, artists and gardeners. The restoration of our home in Eugene and the construction of our stone house in Mexico are our abiding avocations/vocations. It seems that both are works in progress as are our lives. We have transitioned from participation in politics at every level to focusing more completely on writing, gardening, making art and working glass. However, we do consider ourselves to be progressives.

After careers as professional educators and administrators we established an art gallery drawing upon our life long experience in the arts. From the art gallery we retired to a more peripatetic life living between Mexico and Eugene. We both have always been active in the nonprofit volunteer world and have moved from civic committee work to a greater involvement in environmental and homeless issues, and arts organizations. We have a cat named Stinky whom we love and a cat named Tramp who is a juvenile delinquent.

I am an inveterate collector and am of the belief that you cannot have too much of a good thing. My husband does not agree with me.
