We took a hiatus from listing the cottage, but we are putting it back on the market for a few select events this year. Located in a quiet neighborhood just one mile south of the University of Oregon campus and in equally close proximity to great hikes, fresh NW cuisine, and downtown Eugene, the cottage is a great base from which to explore the Willamette Valley wine country, wander the eclectic neighborhoods of Eugene, or partake of world-class sporting and musical events.

The space
This custom-built modern cottage is located in the heart of lush and beautiful southeast Eugene. One mile south of the University of Oregon campus, the cottage is conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants, markets, laundry, fantastic walking/biking paths, and most anything you might need.

The cottage sleeps two and features a queen-size Murphy bed with a very comfortable Serta mattress. If you've never slept on a bed that folds out of the wall, this is your chance!

Other features and amenities include:
- Kitchenette with half-size refrigerator, sink, microwave, Cuisinart automatic drip coffeemaker, electric kettle, toaster, dishes, glasses, and utensils
- Simple and lovely private bath with shower stall
- Lofted ceiling with skylights and tons of natural light
- Radiant floor heating (if you come during the winter months, your feet will love this)
- Ceiling fan
- Lovely views and shaded seating area to enjoy our Oregon garden, featuring hundreds of blooming trees, shrubs, and ground cover as well as a kitchen garden from which you can sample blueberries and raspberries during the summer months.
- Private entrance
- Secure wireless Internet
- Free parking on quiet street
- Convenient access to local bus routes & several great parks

The cottage was constructed by a local design-build firm and its eco-friendly design has received coverage in the local press.

Please feel free to contact us with questions or to inquire about availability.

Thanks for your interest in the Garden Cottage! We have many return guests who have made this their regular home away from home. We hope that you will, too.

Where you’ll be

Eugene, Oregon, United States

In addition to being in close proximity to all the great Eugene offerings above, the cottage is just a half block from Eugene's historic Masonic Cemetery, where visitors can stroll the wild rose-lined paths and read about the notables who colored the town's vibrant history. It is also three blocks from Amazon Park, which boasts fantastic running trails (Adidas & Rexius), tons of green and picnic space, a skate park, and fantastic outdoor pools (for the summer months).

Historic Hayward Field (where Steve Prefontaine ran to his glory) is less than a mile walk north down lovely University Street, where the trolley car used to carry folks to and from campus in days of yore. And, if you aim to explore fantastic hiking paths, we are only a few miles north of the Ridgeline Trail, which features an incredible vista from the summit of Spencer's Butte. The cottage is also in very near proximity to other local trails (Adidas, Rexius, Ribbon, Willamette Riverfront, Mt. Pisgah) for runners, hikers, and explorers of all levels.

And we are, of course, situated in the South Willamette Valley, which means you will also be well-positioned to explore some of the region's best wineries, or to make day-trips west to the Oregon Coast or east into the Cascade Range.

Barry and Laura are professionals living and working in lovely Eugene, Oregon. We moved from New York City twelve years ago, and we have fallen in love with the Northwest. We enjoy exploring new places, meeting and talking with people, and learning new perspectives on the world around us - both at home and through our travels in various parts of the world. As travelers, we seek an authentic experience and try to avoid the well-trodden path. Our Garden Cottage offers exactly this, which is why we are excited to welcome fellow travelers to stay with us in this private cottage on our property. From our own experiences, we know different types of trips may lend themselves to different types of engagement with hosts. We try to create a welcoming, yet private environment for our guests. We can be as engaged or hands-off as you like. In our leisure time, we enjoy cooking, hiking, gardening, and entertaining. Barry is an avid runner, swimmer, and biker. Laura is a crafter, musician, walker, and writer. We both received degrees from the University of Oregon and are dedicated fans of the Oregon Ducks. We love to be of help and we invite your questions. We have had many wonderful experiences staying in other people's guest houses, many of which we found through Airbnb. We are excited to provide a home away from home for our guests and to share our beautiful garden. The South Willamette Valley is a vibrant, peaceful, and unique place. Our Garden Cottage is perfectly situated to explore all it has to offer and is a central location from which one can easily take a day trip to the coast or to the mountains, depending upon what suits you. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our little slice of paradise in the Pacific Northwest.
