Yet another fantastic weekend with Karen! Thank you for opening your home to my mom and myself. I look forward to our morning conversations! Accomodations were awesome as usual! We are seriously considering looking into a trip to visit your Mexico properties! Safe travels my friend, can't wait to stay with you again.
Karen was a great host. The location was great with a beautiful view. The room and bathroom were clean and the breakfast spread was perfect.
Thank you thank you Karen for yet another wonderful stay. We were in late and had to leave early (unfortunately) due to the early game time but look forward to our next visit when we can spend some quality time with Miss Karen. Rooms are amazing, home is welcoming, and this is our home away from home for Duck games!
Our host was most welcoming and the accommodations were fantastic. The views and atmosphere were fantastic, the only thing eclipsing those items was our hosts hospitality. Breakfast each morning during our stay was a fantastic perk!
My Eugene Marathon experience was perfect and Karen's home and hospitality were essential ingredients. The first thing we noticed was that "Pre's Rock" was about 100 feet from the house. We knew right then that this would be a special place.
The house was very comfortable, although it was a little warm in the mid-day heat (on our weekend temp was in the 90s, so it was just hot everywhere). Escaping the room to the deck to watch the amazing sunset under tall fir trees overlooking Eugene made up for any discomfort. Our conversation covered politics, religion, philosophy, and the color of outer space. I can only imagine it was inspired by our picturesque surrounding.
The house was clean but not pristine. Every room had It would take days to look at all the incredible artwork on the walls. Ask Karen a question about one and she will gladly regale you with the history. It's worth a listen.
Above all, Karen was an amazing host. The "self-serve continental breakfast" was a simple, hearty meal full of organic goodness. Karen also got up at 4AM to make sure us marathoners got our fuel early enough. To say it was "self-serve" is to use the term very loosely. Karen made sure we had everything we needed.

About the Host, Karen
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.
