We had a very comfortable stay at Deirdre's apartment the evening before the Eugene marathon. She met us on arrival and showed us up the stairs the the apartment. The property itself is serene and feels quite private. Apartment: up the stairs, the apartment has a loft-like feel with lots of natural light. It's airy and clean feeling with plenty of space and a nice bathroom. Amenities: kitchen basics are provided, including a nice selection of teas and good coffee (beans and a grinder.) We made use of the small fridge. There are robes and even slippers that are washed between guests. Extras: there were a few snack items (granola, peanuts, yogurt in the fridge.) Our favorite "Extra" were the homemade carrot-zucchini-apple muffins. They were phenomenal.

I like living in Oregon. Raised our family here. Love the outdoors. Have an organic garden and a home based business. We do lots of cooking and take a casual approach to living and traveling. Like independence when traveling and would enjoy like minded travelers. Am willing to accomodate to visitors but not fuss over.
