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.
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.
We are often out at are farm and will not be there to check you in. Instructions are listed for directions.
Quirky, walkable, lots of fun neighborhood bars and restaurants.
Buses, taxis, bikable and walkable.
We had an amazing time. Me and my friends will be back... Amazing little cottage. Great location. Catherine even stopped by to make sure we had enough of their amazing pastries in the freezer. I couldn't imagine a better place to stay!
We loved it! Nice and cozy, but everything we needed. The temperature was perfect, too. We woke up to frost in the yard, but the house was nice and toasty.
All of the furnishings and amenities were top-notch. Lots of tea and coffee, frozen pastries (if they say EDF, they're vegan!) and we even loved the body wash in the shower.
The location was awesome, too! Easy walks to Cornbread Cafe, Wandering Goat Coffee, Sweet Life (Scott and Catherine's bakery), Pizza Research Institute and tons of other great places.
We'll definitely be coming back.
This is a lovely little cottage, very quiet and comfortable.
Though it was a quick stay, I had a wonderful stay in the cottage. It was sunny and spacious, and adorable inside and out. Scott and Catherine were extremely fast at responding to my last minute reservation. I appreciate their great communication and hospitality and would recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, and charming experience.
This is a comfortable and convenient place to stay when you're in Eugene. The cottage is well-lit, well furnished, and has plenty of conveniences. Everything is as listed.
Charming cottage that met our needs perfectly. We were meeting friends for the rest of the weekend renting the Urban Whitaker House and Catherine was so gracious to let us move directly into the house early so that our day was easy. The Cottage and House are in a great location to experience and appreciate so much of what makes Eugene special. The Cottage, House, and especially the hospitality of Scott and Catherine are beyond special!
Fantastic location and the place feels twice as large as it is. We felt immediately at home, especially with their excellent tea selection.
The neighborhood was really great and we look forward to making time to check it out more on a return visit.
The Pizza Research Institute restaurant was not what we were expecting, but in the best way possible. I can't wait to go back there.
