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.

I stayed at the Whiteaker cottage for one night. There is a lovely yard and the cottage was clean and Ikea furnished. I had a little difficulty getting the internet to work, but was able to call the host and Catherine took my call right away and I got it working promptly. I thought the cottage had kind of a funky smell to it, so i opened the windows, which helped. The neighborhood is alright, there may be some security issues due to the number of homeless people in the area. I was instructed not to leave any valuables in my care, so i did not. But, there is a lot of foot traffic in that neighborhood, a bar just a few doors down across the street and a small park next door that is not one you would be excited to hang out in I was excited about the hot tub but there was some sort of gathering in the house the night i was there, so I didn't end up using the hot tub. If you want to be walking distance to the restaurants and such in the area, you are in the midst of several.
Catherine and Scott's cabin was charming and comfortable, and the description of the neighborhood was accurate. A special treat was the gift certificate for their bakery, which is a few blocks away.
My daughter and I so enjoyed our stay with Scott and Catherine. The cottage is adorable, comfortable, quiet, clean and in a fun location. We would definitely stay again!
Great place! This cottage was so adorable. Perfect for a nights stay. Great for two people. I loved the way it was decorated and put together. Totally IKEA but adorable. I would def stay there again if I went to Eugene. Thank you!
This is my ideal AirBnb setup - a private cottage with all of the necessities, and not too expensive. I liked everything about it - the bed was so comfortable, the location near lots of restaurants and the most awesome bakery, there is a little kitchenette for making tea and a refrigerator for leftover eclairs and cream puffs.
My host was so kind as to mail my phone charger back to me right away.
There is a sweet little dog to pet when one misses one's own.
I really liked this place. If ever in Eugene again, I would try to stay here.
This is a wonderful place. Upon my arrival , Catherine brought me a chair and there were great treats in the freezer.!The location is perfect and close to great food and bars
The Whiteaker Cottage was welcoming and clean! Upon entering the cottage, we were treated to a gift certificate to the Sweet Life Bakery (which the hosts own). We enjoyed the vegan treats we got there immensely.
The space had everything we could have needed for cooking or enjoying the hot tub. The only complaint was there wasn't enough hot water for two showers.
We would definitely book the space again!
Thanks for your hospitality!

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.
