About this listing

Our beautiful 2 bedroom house 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 urban modern craftsman home was built in 2007. It is remodeled from a 700 sq. foot cottage and was built by us! It has an open and spacious feeling and yet is cozy and warm with repurposed lumber and modern amenities. There is a hot tub along with a beautiful deck for relaxing in the summer. There are two large tvs and wireless. There is a dance/workout room and an office. Two bedrooms, one with a king, one with a queen. Both have bathrooms, one with a walkin shower, one with a clawfoot tub. There is room for air mattresses for several more guests. The house is fully furnished. There is also a cottage in the back of the property that will sleep 2, and is also available to rent. (Please see Urban Whiteaker Cottage) This is not a party house. We have neighbors next door and they all like to sleep at night. That being said, a good time can still be had before 11pm!
It's situated in the heart of Whiteaker, 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 ((website hidden)).
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 house 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.
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 is our first time using Airbnb so I don't know if this is normal... if so, I apologize for misspeaking. I didn't feel comfortable in this home because I felt like the owner never left. When you walk in you get the feeling like they just grabbed their toothbrushes and walked out... their bath robes were still hanging, all their shower toiletries were still out, etc. I also didn't like that she would let her self in to do laundry without letting us know in advance. We just couldn't relax 100%

The Urban Whiteaker House is always a treat. It has all amenities, great location and has anything you need for a wonderful quiet get away or a big family get together. We love this home and hope to enjoy it for as many duck games as we are able to attend.

A unique home built and furnished with loving care and attention to detail. It's both a welcoming place to lounge, with a kitchen fully stocked (and more) to prepare a meal, and a jumping off point to the restaurants, bars and galleries in the area. The neighborhood is walkable (and a trip to the host's patisserie is highly recommended). Catherine was an accessible host who insured our arrival and check out went smoothly. Communication with her was pleasant and easy. The best place we've stayed!

This home is beyond (URL HIDDEN) is warm, well though out, creative, comfortable, well maintained. Though the neighborhood is not the greatest there was no time in which we felt unsafe. We would HIGHLY recommend booking it.
