Born and raised in Corvallis, I met Luis while volunteering in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica. We moved back to Corvallis, started a landscaping business and a family. We'd love to share our beautiful spot in the country with you!

We visited the Garden Loft for a romantic getaway on Valentines Day, last year. We were so impressed by the accommodations, the host's generosity, and the surrounding area, that we vowed to return for a full weekend. So, just over a year later we finally got the chance to do just that. Once again, the room was perfect, the weather was perfect so we could spend nearly the whole day sitting on the deck that overlooks beautiful pasture land and the host's private garden on the creek. With a microwave, a nice mini fridge, coffee maker, toaster oven, and even a single burner hot plate, you are self-contained for a hibernation if that's what you want. Or you can be in downtown Corvallis in 10 minutes to enjoy the lovely campus, great variety and quality of food, bakeries, coffee, and micro brew. Corvallis is no slacker when it comes to hip places and spaces, and gets an A+ in friendliness. You could easily ride to town or enjoy the spread of the serene valley Eastward on your bike, as there are numerous paved paths. And the Garden Loft is right at the base of Baldy Hill, a parks & rec operated open space with a path system suitable for walking or mtn biking where you will ramble through expansive green fields and enjoy the distant views of the Three Sisters to the east and the coast range to the west. This is our new go-to slice of heaven. And when your day of restoration is complete, you will fall into one of the most comfortable beds you've ever slept in.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage Loft. It's in a beautiful setting, surrounded by green hills and trees all around. It was clean and actually more ascetically pleasing than the pictures convey. I found Laurie to be very accommodating and appreciated her willingness to work with us and our travel plans. I would recommend staying here and hope to stay here again in the future!
Wonderful private location just a couple miles out of town. The loft is perfect for a couple to enjoy a low-key stay. Bald Hill Park has numerous running and walking trails right outside your door, loved the creek in the back. Laurie made us feel right at home~providing a light snack in the morning, and very responsive in every way.
Definitely would stay again!
Our host made us feel welcome by anticipating our needs. Laurie asked what we liked for breakfast and then provided our favorite breakfast for us while we were there!
This Airbnb experience was perfect from top to bottom. Very responsive reservation confirmation, great communication and clear instructions from the host and we felt extra care was taken to make sure we would be comfortable and had breakfast. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very inviting, private and cozy. The view from the deck was fabulous and the creek that runs behind the cottage was full and and we were delighted to be able to fall asleep to the sound of the rushing creek. This was a very easy and stress-free experience and I highly recommend Laurie and Louie and their sweet little cottage! Thank you so much!
The Garden Cottage was true to its description: very cozy, clean, comfortable, private, well-equipped, and with a beautiful view of gardens and nature park. For such a quiet, idyllic country setting, it was also a quick 5 or 10 min drive to OSU, which was our destination. Laurie's instructions were clear and friendly and we felt very welcome!
We booked two nights for our daughter and son-in-law for a little "babymoon." They loved the cottage and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
This, my first Airbnb experience, provided me with excellent accommodations in an interesting place hosted by friendly people who made me feel at home. Laurie and Luis are new friends I'm looking forward to seeing again!
The garden cottage—an efficiency apartment on the top floor of a garage used only for storage, not cars—sits next to the Madrigal's house. Guests can use the attached carport, convenient in rainy Oregon.
The kitchenette is fully stocked with utensils and dishes, plus a microwave and a small refrigerator. Although the cottage lacks a cooktop and oven, a large hotplate is provided for light cooking. A television on a swivel mount is viewable from the bed or from a comfortable couch.
The cottage has a fine, private view of the adjacent Bald Hill Farm Nature Preserve, where I spent several enjoyable afternoons hiking on trails ranging from easy strolls to slightly challenging grades.
Despite its quiet, rural feel, the cottage is located surprisingly close to the city of Corvallis. Dozens of pubs and restaurants, along with stores and shops, are a quick, 4-mile drive away. Besides Trader Joe's, Corvallis has all of the major "big-box" stores, in case a guest forgets to bring along any needed supplies.
Our experience was perfect. Breakfast foods, coffee and all amenities were available. The cottage was immaculate and very functional with great amenities. The location is next to a popular hiking/running area, which is in a beautiful country setting. The property is very attractive with a beautiful garden area. We will return here again and recommend this property to others.
This is the perfect place to stay. It is airy and cozy, right next to a big park where you can walk for miles and get views of the Willamette. Clean, kitchen is equipped with whatever little meals a traveler would want to make, heat control is good and fast, has a 2nd story porch with chairs, next to a babbling brook and their garden. Summer would be nice, I went in late fall. In the farm and fruit/nut tree region. Also very low stimulus decorations, no chintzy textures, soothing color scheme.
Great communication on needs and family get together are always my favorite, the laughter and love resonated. Thanks for infusing the house with good energies.
Laurie and her husband were great. They left the cottage very neat and were respectful of the resort rules.
We have known Laurie and Luis for over 25 years and always enjoy getting together with them for fun, games, traveling, and just hanging out. They are friendly hosts, making people feel comfortable and relaxed at their lovely home and garden.
