About This Listing
This hand-built, light and cozy studio is called the ‘The Nest’ (380 sf). The Nest is the guest house of a local artist Betsy Wolfston and her partner Michael who live next door on the property.
The space is pretty much one large room with a beautiful and simple separate bathroom. A kitchenette includes a sink, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, small refrigerator and dishes, and a few coffee and tea choices. Sleeping accommodations are a queen size bed in its own nook and a pull out sofa bed. The Nest has a very cozy gas/wood stove - perfect for Oregon rainy weather - ceiling fan, DVD/TV player, ipod docking stereo, and all original artwork. It also has its own porch/deck with table, umbrella and chairs and gas grill for you to enjoy the outdoors. Wifi access of course!
Situated in the heart of downtown Eugene, it is an easy one plus mile walk to the University of Oregon and the Hult Performing Arts Center. One of the best bakeries in town - Sweet Life - is four blocks away. The Nest is located on the east/west bike path and is one block to a couple of different bus stops. We have easy out front parking and are conveniently located in a friendly, quiet and safe neighborhood. The Nest is artistic in its hand crafted details - a very relaxing and warm home away from home. We pride ourselves in its impeccable cleanliness - only green cleaning products are used. We also subscribe to the Green Power option of our local utility.

Special rates apply for home U of O games, track events, and some festivals.
The Nest is a very comfortable, extremely clean, quiet and beautiful place to stay in Eugene. The neighborhood is delightful and walkable to downtown and Whitaker. Betsy and Michael were very welcoming, but also gave us ample privacy. The kitchen was handy for making simple breakfasts. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets and towels were first rate.
"The Nest" was truly a cozy and restful guest house - Michael and Betsy provided excellent information so that I could easily access the house upon my arrival and I enjoyed walking the neighborhood which was also no more that a 15 min walk to Saturday's farmer's market and coffee shops/restaurants.
The Nest was a wonderful place that we were able to call home for a few days. We came down for the Eugene Marathon and had a wonderful time. It was spacious with tons of natural light, clean, and had all the amenities that we needed. We were close enough to campus, breweries, and everything that we wanted to see and do. Michael and Betsy were courteous and gave us our space while being nearby if we needed.
We will definitely keep this in mind next time we are in town.
Loved staying at The Nest. Very comfortable and cozy. It's in a charming neighborhood & you can walk to everything in Eugene.
We had a great first time airbnb experience at the Nest! It was a great cozy space with lots of privacy. We had everything we needed (and more!) and Michael & Betsy were easy to communicate with.
We would definitely stay again!
Betsy and Michael's cottage was the ideal place from which to explore Eugene for a couple of days. Communication prior to arrival was easy and efficient, they were very gracious and friendly in person and gave us a number of excellent recommendations for the neighborhood. The cottage is pleasant, light, with many personal touches and feels more spacious than the square footage would suggest. Would definitely like to visit again.
