The Space

This wonderful room high above the Willamette River and Autzen Stadium accommodates two to four guests in dual full-size beds. Read and relax after a busy day in these comfortable quarters furnished with antique birdseye maple and cherry furniture.

Should you have more in your party an adjacent bedroom with mahogany four-poster full-size bed is available. The two bedrooms when rented together are $230. for double occupancy in each room.

The vintage bathroom, original to this 1928 home, is immediately across the hall from your bedroom and may be reserved for your exclusive use.

A very special place and a very special feeling, just steps away from Pre's Rock and walking distance to campus this is the perfect place to relax after an active day. Most track and field fans are familiar with the location, the tradition, and the history of the residence.

Nearby are Hendricks Park, 78 acres of mature forest with Douglas fir trees over two hundred years old, and the 12 acre Rhododendron Garden containing over 6000 varieties of plants. Hiking, jogging, and birding are outside your door as is the marvelous 1.6 mile Ribbon Trail that laces through the park.

The University of Oregon campus and its event venues are within walking distance.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Once again, another fantastic weekend spent with Karen! Always going above and beyond. Karen has truly turned into a dear dear friend!

    November 2013
  • What a fantastic weekend! Thank you so much Karen for your warm hospitality and lovely conversation. Your home is amazingly eclectic; full of history and stories....and the view!! Our room was perfect! I'm not sure I will ever stay in a Eugene hotel again, you will always be my first choice! In fact, just hours into our visit we already booked our next trip to Eugene with Karen!

  • Beautiful, classic tudor home with great views. Comfortable and classic.

  • We were in town visiting college and the location of this home was perfect. Karen and her husband were gracious hosts and made our quick stay easy and effortless. Breakfast was an added unexpected bonus. If our daughter decides to be a DUCK, we will definitely make this our home base for visits.

  • Fabulous hosts, house, and location. My husband and I had a fantastic time! Karen and Carl... it was a pleasure to meet you both.

  • This is an incredible home and Karen is an incredible host! Clean sheets, clean towels, clean home, great location and incredible views overlooking Eugene - the pictures do not do it justice!

    Each morning while we were there (not sure if this is always the case) Karen provided a continental breakfast of muffins, bagels, juice, coffee, hard boiled eggs and yogurt - delicious! As if that weren't enough, Karen was kind enough to share with us her knowledge of the area and the history of Pre's Rock which is literally just a few steps down the road.

    I stayed here for the first weekend of the 2012 Olympic Trials and found that the track, campus, and downtown are all within a comfortable walking distance although the steep hill this house sits atop can be tiring to climb multiple times per day.

    I do not know when I will be back to Eugene, but when I do return I certainly plan on getting back in touch with Karen to stay in her marvelous home!

writers and artists and sporadic social activists
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, and working glass. 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 emphasis on environmental issues and arts organizations. We have a cat named Stinky whom we love and a cat named Tramp who is a juvenile delinquent.
