What a slice of heaven! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage Loft. The loft overlooks a beautiful garden, and beyond that, a large open space with an incredible view. We found ourselves on the deck as much as possible, admiring the gardens, watching the birds, relaxing, and taking it all in.
Inside, the loft was perfectly appointed, and spotlessly clean. We were treated to yogurt in the refrigerator, along with fresh fruit and coffee. Such a nice touch.
The Laurie was warm and welcoming. A great communicator in every way.
What a lovely, lovely place. We had a wonderful experience, and look forward to returning some day.
The room was perfect, the kitchen served us nicely the deck right outside was great. This place is in a great location close enough to get to town but far enough to enjoy the outdoors.There is also a walking trail right behind the house, so you dont have to go far to enjoy it.The room is to the side of the main house so you get your own entry so it feels very private, you even get a parking space in the car port. Staying here made us feel like vips.
The sweet little loft was perfect for our quick visit in Corvaliss. Laurie was nice to stock it with fruit and coffee! The gardens are beautiful and the location was convenient.
This place is an oasis! We were not even ready for the level of comfort, beauty and function and the Garden Cottage provides. A soft bed, hot shower, easy location and gorgeous garden help to wash away any travel pains. We felt completely refreshed for the day ahead and have never felt more comfortable at an Air B&B! Thanks Laurie and Luis!
The little Garden Cottage Loft was fantastic. Great setting - overlooking a garden. Great location - right next to open space with running and hiking trails. Great room - plenty of space, everything you need, clean and tidy. I'll be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Laurie's place during graduation weekend at Oregon State University ('GO BEAVs!'). It was close to town and shopping, but very much in the country. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchenette more than adequate, the scenery was beautiful, and the general ambiance lovely. We would HIGHLY recommend a stay here.
I was in town for my elderly father's 80th birthday, and after spending a month in New Zealand and using Airbnb extensively, decided to find a local listing here in Corvallis. Laurie's cottage was simply beautiful, and a lush garden setting that I found out was because their family was in the landscaping business. The cottage was upstairs, which might be an issue for some older folks, but it was a charming self contained unit that was clean, well designed, and well appointed, and included a nice second story deck to enjoy either coffee on in the morning, or an evening cocktail as well. If I had an issue at all in 2 nights there, because it was in the high 90's, the AC and ceiling fan couldn't be turned on high enough, since the queen bed was tucked under a roof gable around the corner. But I survived, and Laurie and her husband were most kind and enjoyable hosts!

Born and raised in Corvallis, I met Luis while volunteering in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica. We moved back to Corvallis, started a landscaping business and a family. We'd love to share our beautiful spot in the country with you!
