This remodeled and comfortable 2 story cottage that was originally built in 1910, is not only a perfect getaway, but also in an ideal central location. Hardwood floors, a private back porch, and a relaxing balcony off the master bedroom are just some of the many features.
This house has beds for 4 people, but can accommodate 6 people.The upstairs bedroom has a king sized bed, while the downstairs bedroom has 2 twin beds. There is a double futon in the living room..as well as 2 single folding sleeping mats in the closet if needed..There are 2 bathrooms..one upstairs and one downstairs. House is 1250 sq ft.
McDonald Theater, Autzen Stadium, Fifth Street Market, the Hult Center, the Library, Saturday Market, the University of Oregon campus and Hayward Field are all only a few minutes away....House is approx 2.3 miles from the University Campus.
Easy walking distance to various restaurants, Frontier Market, Sweet Life Coffee & Pastry Shop, Fisherman's Market, Monroe Park and much more.
I am an RN and Photographer here in the beautiful state of Oregon…Love to travel & crave the ocean and tropical weather. Spend as much time as possible in Jamaica and with family on Maui.
Kalona purchased this house in 2008
Growing up on the Oregon coast, Eugene was always the 'big city' for us:) I have always loved the mellow University town feel the Eugene has. Initially we had thought of purchasing a house further away from town….but having chosen this location, I couldn't be happier! It has the quiet neighborhood and wonderful neighbors, but with the ease of access to anywhere!
Our location here is ideal! Having grown up in the country, it is a wonderful thing to be able to walk just down the street to Sweet Life for a cup of coffee, to the market or out for lunch. We frequently see concerts at MacDonald Theater and The Cuthbert, catch shows at the Hult Center and games at Autzen Stadium..It is wonderful to be within a few minutes of everything.
I hesitate to write this review because once everyone realizes what a special place this is we may find it booked whenever we want to stay there again! First of all it is obvious that the owner takes very good care of the house. Everything is clean, well-organized and well-maintained. Light switches and supplies are clearly labeled. There is a house book that lists items that might be needed and where they are stored. And if questions arise the owner can be readily reached by phone, text or email. Secondly, the layout of the house and the owner's choice of paint and fabric colors are very soothing. Thirdly we could walk to numerous restaurants, the University of Oregon, friends' homes and other amenities. We look forward to staying there again.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Such a warm and cozy home. Well stocked with everything from kitchen items, household items, laundry detergent, and so much more! Particularly enjoyed the great selection of teas. It was so nice to return to this home, after a long day out and about in Eugene town. Kalona was a joy to work with! My deposit was refunded immediately . . . Thank you Kalona! We will return to your lovely home on our next visit to Eugene.
Very comfortable and clean home. Everything we needed to have a relaxing vacation. Within walking distance to groceries and restaurants. Customer service was amazing. I would love to stay again!
We were visiting from Minnesota and stayed in this VRBO. It is just a wonderful home, and has everything you could possibly need, and more. Kalona, the owner, is extremely responsive and accommodating, and has done a wonderful job of providing a warm, inviting "just like home" place. We cannot recommend this house as a place to stay. You won't be disappointed! If we are back in the Eugene area again, we will definitely booke this house. Thank you so much, Kalona!
**Only note I would make is we couldn't get the kitchen window open. Not sure if it was just "us" or if there was something in the way. There was a twig on the sill, not sure what for. BUT, it did not affect our time there AT ALL! :o)
This is the 2nd time I've stayed in this sweet cottage while visiting Eugene and Cottage Grove for cycling, and it will be my 1sr choice on my next trip too.
The kitchen is well stocked, beds comfortable and location is close to walking to restaurants and a sweet corner grocery open late with many unique foods.
My only concern for some folks staying here would be the lack of air conditioning and very steep stairs up to the main bedroom. It was in the upper 90's when we visted and i am use to the heat but i dont think many could tolerate this heat with only fans moving hot air. Parking is also tight with one space for a car which is none too large, and street parking. These are my only criticisms of what is still a great little house, nice quiet neighborhood, close to food, and central location. I just wanted to point out if you cant tolerate heat or difficult to ambulate steep stairs, it might not be a good choice for some. I love staying here and will return on my next trip if its available.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kalona's cottage. It looks small from the outside but feels much bigger once you settle in. Very efficient use of space with room for 2 couples or a small family. Kitchen was great with many items to use for cooking. Living room is very comfy with a decent tv/cable setup. Internet worked great. It was quite warm when we arrived so we fired up all of the fans. There is no AC so when one of them quit working soon after, Kalona had a replacement for us within an hour, now that is great hosting. Very clean well setup home and we will definitely be booking again.
