This is my second stay with Karen, this time in the Four Poster Room. The room is comfortable, open and with a convenient bath across the hall. Breakfast was fantastic once again. Really, if you're coming to Eugene and going to be anywhere near the University of Oregon, this is a fine place to stay.
Karen was an amazing host. We got to her home very early but she welcomed us with open arms. She was so gracious when greeting us. I felt instantly welcome in her home. She showed us around, helped us get situated in our rooms, and explained how to get back in to the house later that night. It was all so comfortable and just as she described in her ad on airbnb. Everything was clean, comfortable, and the views were amazing. We walked from her home to the UofO campus, then on to Autzen. A very easy walk. Thank you Karen for making us feel so welcome. I look forward to staying at your home again some day.
Karen was amazing. She had that great balance of friendly and helpfulness, without being too overbearing as some hosts can be. Her house is absolutely incredible, the room was beautiful and had an amazing view, and her cats are pretty awesome to boot. Looking forward to staying there again when I get the opportunity.
What an incredible, memorable experience! Karen's home in the Eugene hills is magical. We had heard great things about Eugene -- and enjoyed our time throughout -- with this Airbnb visit as a real highlight.
Karen was warm and welcoming, and her home is unique in so many ways: truly a trip into another world! We enjoyed meeting other guests and learning about local history. I'm an avid jogger and the Alton Baker Park nearby is itself enough reason to move to Eugene. :)
We will definitely return to Eugene and would love to stay here again. And, we enthusiastically recommend Karen and her gracious home to others!
Karen was fantastic, and went above my expectations to make me feel at home! The house is incredible, and was like a step back to a slower paced, more civilized time. The room, bed and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Close to the city, so you hear noise from the freeway which can be minimized by shutting the window, but isolated enough to hear some animal sounds at night! Amazing breakfast in the morning too!
We had a nice stay. Very clean, amazing view, great breakfast and Karen is a wonderful host. I would recommend her house for anyone. Plus, she's right next to Prefontaine's memorial rock which was very moving.

About the Host, Karen
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.
