About Pam Basilius
It is my intention in opening my home for rent to offer comfort, bring happiness to people and make magical memories for children they will carry with them for a lifetime. Life is so challenging for many especially now. It is my way of creating a business that is green, brings peace to people and gives back to the community.
Pam Basilius purchased this Farmhouse in 2000
Why Pam Basilius chose Springfield
The reason I chose to buy my house in this location was because of the beautiful land, views and very quaint, homey house and walking distance to the McKenzie River. It was a happy home with 11 children being raised here and you can tell there was a lot of love. We are a mile off I-5 and 4 miles drive to downtown Eugene. The feel of out in the country but close to everything.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
You and your family get to experience farm life. We are 1928 working farm nestled in an old Walnut grove with very old vegetation and flowers. There are hummingbirds that feed daily and live here year round feed. The birds feed off feeders just a few feet from house. We are a 5 minute walk from the beautiful McKenzie River.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fun on the farm!
Pam is an amazing hostess. She was always looking out for our comfort! We had a delightful stay!
We had the pleasure of staying on the Peaceful Sanctuary property for five days, and we couldn’t have had a better stay. Pam was a warm, informative and gracious host. She made sure that we had everything we needed to ensure that we had a memorable trip.
The home was well appointed, comfortable and lovely, and the gardens were beautiful and serene. Everywhere we looked there was something in bloom! We quickly fell in love with the friendly and affectionate alpacas, dogs, chickens and cat. When Pam was tending to the animals and gardens, she patiently answered all of our questions about the area and animals. Being a city mouse, I enjoyed learning about the care of the alpacas and chickens. I wanted to take Fozzie, the alpha alpaca, home, but alas, he wouldn’t fit in my suitcase.
The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to make delicious meals, and the eggs that Pam provided were incredibly delicious! After a long day it was nice to retreat to the comfortable bed- I don’t think that we have slept so soundly in months!
I cannot recommend the Peaceful Sanctuary highly enough. I came wanting respite, and left feeling renewed.
Sincere thanks Pam, I can see why so many of your guests leave as your friends. I am grateful to have found a friend in you. I can’t wait until our next visit!
Thank you for the very kind review. It was great having you at the farm because you were into learning about the animals and living off the land. It's always exciting to be able to share my passion with nice folks who appreciate what I do. I am glad you are coming back and I look forward to your stay. Making friends with wonderful people like you that stay at the farm fills my heart with joy! PS - thanks for locking up the chickens for me.
What a peaceful and charming place to call "home" for our time traveling in Oregon. Pam is an amazing host- she is always available and goes above and beyond to make sure your time here is very comfortable and enjoyable. The sweet animals on the farm are so much fun to watch and interact with and the fresh eggs are quite tasty. The house is beyond comfortable with everything you could possibly need and the beds make you never want to leave. The location is perfect, close to everything yet still provides that "country- like feeling", and a short walk to the river will live you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. A great home base to explore all that this area has to offer, from hiking and camping, to breweries and wineries. A huge thanks to Pam for sharing her home, animals and plentiful knowledge about Eugene. We would definitely recommend this peaceful sanctuary to anyone!
It's been a pleasure having you and Kris stay at the farm. You are great guests! I appreciate you offering to help with the animals and looking forward to showing you how to trim goats hooves. It's so rewarding to have guests stay at the farm that want to learn about sustainable farm life and to learn about caring for my animals. It's been new adventures for us too taking my dogs and yours on a pack walk. I am happy you are enjoying your stay. Thanks again you are amazing!!
Loved our time at A Peaceful Sanctuary
We had such a wonderful time at Pam’s place. Fresh eggs in the morning, crisp white comfy sheets, friendly animals and an overall peaceful vibe. I loved spending time reading in the garden and our walk at Fall Creek state park was rejuvenating. Her place is close to everything! I would recommend Pam’s rental to anyone looking for a peaceful respite.
Thank you for the nice review Beth. I appreciate and treasure my return guests. It was great to see you both and to go hiking with you was a treat. See you next year!

Thank you for the nice review. You and Karen were such great, fun guests. I appreciate you inviting me to hike with you and having a barbecue at the farm. I'm glad you had such a nice time and got to experience some of our beautiful parks and hiking trails. Hope to see you again soon..
Charming and relaxing
Five of us stayed comfortably in this really charming house surrounded by animals! It is in the perfect location, close to stores yet you feel like you are out in the country with the river just minutes away. We enjoyed checking out the town, floating on the McKenzie, and hanging out in the yard (which truly is a peaceful sanctuary). The alpacas are amazing, so friendly and sweet, we fell in love with them all. We also got to meet the goats, collect eggs from the chickens, and hand out with the dogs (three of the most well behaved chihuahuas you will ever meet) and Merlin the magical cat. Pam was great about letting us tag along to check out her animals and making sure we never ran out of eggs. We are already planning to make this a yearly thing!
It was great having you ladies stay at the farm. I am glad you had such a fun time. My alpacas sure loved all of you. Thank you so much for the framed print and table decoration. I hung the print on the wall of fun. Thank you for staying with us. See you next year.
Since A Peaceful Sanctuary is located on the out skirts of town, with the wilderness on one side and the city on the other. Our farm has the feeling of being out in the country yet close to everything. We are conveniently located on a bike path so getting around of your bike is easy and safe Our farm is close to Malls, theaters, many restaurants, a great Micro Brewerys, a post office, dry cleaners, liquor store, or go hiking Mt Pisgah, take a short 1 hr trip to the coast or the Cascade Mts, A big local favorite is to go tubing down the McKenzie River..............
