The Space

Nothing like it in Eugene. Situated in the woods and walking distance from the University of Oregon Campus with all its amenities. Indulge yourself with a stay in a 1928 Tudor Revival home filled with art, antiques, and history. Perhaps the greatest views of the Willamette Valley from every room, this home brings to mind the great days of the university, track and field. Eagles and osprey soar over head, the river runs below, deer visit the front door, and the spirit of what makes the hill unique fills the house.

The vintage restoration proceeds a bit at a time, lovingly done by the members of the family. Styles and fashions have changed, but we have tried to remain true to the essence of an old family home. From flappers, through the Great Depression, to World War II, and Viet Nam war protests the memories resonate. Moving on to Prefontaine, Olympic Trials, weddings and celebrations, and the triumphant Oregon Ducks this wonderful old house has been a part of it all.

  • Wow, thank you so much for opening your house to 11 football fans! The place was great, and Karen and her husband are excellent hosts. The only downside was the lack of TV (especially for those with Saturday morning hangovers...no matter we made our way to the WILD DUCK to watch the early games and explored campus from there). For those that are looking for a walk-able location to the Stadium or the Track, you have to be in shape, but this is an excellent location, especially for larger groups.

  • Home was perfect for our stay in Eugene to have our daughter spend time at University of Oregon where she was just admitted. Walking distance to campus, beautiful view of the town and Autzen Stadium, and a half block from historic Pre's Rock. Karen is an incredibly caring and thoughtful host, making breakfast and telling us about the history of U of O and Eugene and the wonderful Fairmount area. Beds are comfortable, home is an architectural gem, and location is serene.

  • Karen, thx so much for letting us stay on such short notice. It was excellent and a beautiful place.

    Keep up the fight, likewise I will over here w/the Pacific lamprey (you got it right). One thing that has been on my radar is to ferry across from Guaymas into Santa Rosalia and mtn bike down to Los Cabos. Will be sure to ask your advice if I can make it happen.

  • The stay was a lot of fun and the house and the family have a lot of great stories. They do have a cat, so do not stay there if you are allergic. Great views and fresh breakfast, made our stay a fun one.

About
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.
