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.
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. There is also no AC.
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.

Scott and Catherine were very helpful with our stay in Eugene and at their Cottage! They communicated how to check in and also left a guidebook about the area. The grounds were beautiful and the cottage was very clean and comfy. They left fresh eggs from their farm for us to try (unfortunately I forgot this in the morning but I appreciated it nonetheless). They also left pastry from their patisserie as well! So delicious! I used to own a cafe so I love a good pastry :) The cottage had everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely stay here again if we are back in Eugene!
We loved our stay here! The cottage was clean, inviting, and had everything we needed for a short visit to Eugene.
This place was exactly as described! Very clean and accommodating, an excellent retreat in the midst of a bustling neighborhood. Great proximity to delicious food and drinks, as well as groceries. The hot tub was just what the doctor ordered after a long day on the road!
We loved our stay! We stayed one night (April 18, 2015). The property is beautiful and private. I really enjoyed the hot tub after our five hour drive. The cottage had everything we needed, a comfortable bed, nice sheets!, and a small kitchen and bath. Scott and Catherine left a gift card for their bakery which we visited on our way out. It was a lovely spot with good treats and coffee. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our first Airbnb booking such a fun and pleasant experience. :)
The cottage was splendid and we wished we had had more than one night there. Will certainly be back next time we're in Eugene visiting our son. it's in a great neighborhood with fantastic restaurants and nearby breweries so plan to spend two or three days there if you get the chance.
We received an email from the host outlining everything we needed to know but didn't see the host while we stayed there. We loved the cottage, the backyard and hot tub and I highly recommend this property as a wonderful place to stay when visiting Eugene. The neighbourhood had many different options for eating and drinking and we loved the independent and artistic vibe of the area.

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 enjoy growing, preserving, cooking and eating good food, playing with our niece and nephews, dinners with friends, and making beautiful things grow.
