Our studio with kitchenette is nestled in the heart of the Whiteaker neighborhood. A bustling and eccentric urban area in Eugene that is packed with breweries and restaurants . It's also close to downtown, Autzen stadium, Sweet Life and the river.

The Space

Our 320 sq. ft. cottage is an efficient studio. Two fit comfortably in a queen bed with an additional sofa twin bed for a child. It's situated in Eugene's oldest neighborhood. Esquire magazine calls it "one of the weirdest neighborhoods in America". It's a mix of bohemian vibe, urban funk and hippy love. Within a 5 minute walk, you'll find Ninkasi (local beer brewery), Territorial (a local winery), Vanilla Jill's (a local organic frozen yogurt co.), Sam Bond's garage (a bar/venue for amazing shows), PRI (the most unusual pizza you'll ever try), Meiji (japanese pub), Mame sushi (a new hole in the wall that serves world class sushi), a host of traditional mexican and thai restaurants, and of course, my bakery, Sweet Life Patisserie.
The river is a short jaunt, as well as most places in Eugene as it is centrally located. On street parking and bus stops right out front.
Keep in mind, this cottage is located in the center of a busy neighborhood. You'll often hear music from the local venues at night and an occasional rowdy bunch in the park next door. The energy of the neighborhood is festive and unique.
The cottage has a bath with shower, a fully stocked kitchenette with fridge and hotplate, and a queen sized memory foam mattress. There is also a 4 person hot tub with access to a beautiful deck.
Locally roasted organic coffee and assorted teas provided.
We're busy on our farm and at the bakery, so you probably won't see too much of us, but we'll greet you and make sure you're settled in.

  • This was possibly our favorite place we stayed on our road trip from CA to Canada & back. The cottage was adorable, cozy & well appointed. Lots of little details were provided to help travelers feel at home. The location couldn't be better either, awesome restaurants and bars are all within short walking distance.

  • We loved this place! We wish we had had more time there and will definitely be coming back. The little house is perfect, all details have been thought of. The garden is beautiful, lush with blueberries when we were there. The hot tub was a great evening treat. The location could not be better, in a great neighborhood with many excellent restaurants near by. Our hostess, Cathrine, introduced herself which we always like and was clearly available if needed. Her treat of a gift card to her bakery, another amazing place to eat within walking distance, was a wonderful perk. We want to come back and eat our way through the neighborhood after hiking all the nature spots nearby.

  • We had a very nice stay in the Cottage. Everything was very clean and well cared for. It's obvious the hosts have put a personal interest into the quality of the property; everything was great, including the welcome instructions.

    So much nicer than staying in a hotel -- thank you Scott and Catherine.

    Response from Scott And Catherine:

    Screen door is a great idea, especially since it can get warm in there. Thanks!

  • This was a great little spot to spend the night! This cute little cottage was in an eclectic neighborhood close to all sorts of cute shops and delicious eateries. The whole process was easy as pie and we slept very comfortably. Definitely want to come back - highly recommend!

  • We had a lovely evening at the cottage on a quick visit to Eugene. Just the calm, quiet, clean, private place we needed on a road trip--with the energy of the Whiteaker just a few steps away (a great market for our short term needs, terrific restaurants/bars, and of course Sweet Life!). So sorry we never got to meet our hosts, but the beauty of the place--including the hot tub late at night on the summer solstice--gave us a good sense of who they are, and we hope we can meet them next time!

  • We LOVED staying at this cottage! It was perfect. Not one complaint, and many compliments. My partner and I stayed for two nights while he was attending a conference at U of O. The cottage is beautiful- well designed, clean, very comfortable, and surrounded by a gorgeous garden. This cottage has everything you need for a fun and relaxing time in Eugene including a very comfortable bed, a patio overlooking the garden, towels, and a kitchen stocked with cooking supplies, coffee, and tea. Also enjoyed the hot tub! The location is great, right in the middle of a fun neighborhood with good food, bars, and parks. About a fifteen minute walk to downtown, and a 40 minute walk to the University of Oregon. Visited the Sweet Life bakery and it was delicious!! HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone visiting Eugene, we couldn't be more grateful to our hosts and I wish we could have stayed longer!

  • It was wonderful to have a place to call home on our honeymoon. The cottage was clean, quiet and comfortable. Neighborhood nightlife was perfect, plenty of fresh local food, drinks, music and dancing all within a very comfortable walking distance.
    I would suggest this cottage to anyone who is looking for locally grown relaxation.

I own a patisserie in Eugene, Oregon with my sister. My husband Scott and I built our dream home 3 years ago. Now we're embarking on a new adventure of starting an organic farm so we can grow berries and flowers for our bakery. We rarely stop to breathe, but when we do we enjoy cooking and eating good food, hanging with our niece and nephews, dinners with friends, and making beautiful things grow.
