About this listing
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.

Had a great stay at Catherine's cottage. Brilliant neighbourhood.Fair warning though to all who, like us, are only familiar with the metric system: If you order a large pizza at the PRI, you will receive a LARGE pizza...
The cottage was absolutely wonderful. Perfect space for my husband and I and our pups! The gardens are gorgeous!!! We will surely be back on our next trip through Eugene.
A beautiful, incredible place to stay in Eugene! We were so happy with the entire experience- booking and communicating with Catherine was a breeze, and the cottage couldn't have been more perfect. What a beautiful guest home that is well loved and well cared for. And within walking distance to a million fun things! Thanks for helping to make our vacation perfect- we hope to be back soon.
Our host's , although not present in the main house, made us feel very welcome. They emailed to let us know that they wouldn't be in town during our stay but left a number to reach them if we needed anything at all. Directions were spot on, description of the cottage was as advertised and photographed. Lovely property. Would like to have stayed longer!
Clean and comfortable cottage in a beautiful garden. Great communication from Catherine. Great spot near some of Eugene's best breweries, would stay again.
This cottage was absolutely adorable and definitely felt like an urban escape. The check in process was simple, all amenities were stocked, and it immediately felt like home to us. The park next to the fence had some questionable characters in it, but as per the owner's instructions, we brought all of our luggage into the cottage and there were no problems whatsoever. Would definitely stay here again!

About the Host, Catherine
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.
