Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This quaint and charming home is centrally located ,in the heart of downtown Eugene, Oregon. It is only a brisk walk from the eclectic Whitaker / Blair Boulevard neighborhood with its many ethnic restaurants and grocers, gourmet dining establishments and great music venues. One of Eugene's best bakeries is only a few steps away! Deliscious! The Pizza Research Institute and Papa's Soul Food Kitchen are extraordinary and Sam Bond's Garage is a popular music venue for local, and not so local, artists. Just down the way a bit is the Hult Center where touring companies bring theatre and music to Eugene and where the notable Eugene Symphony, the Mozart Players and the Bach Festival perform to the delight of local and international audiences. For a change of pace , take public transportation, or drive,the short distance to Matthew Knight Arena, Autzen Stadium, Hayward Field or PK Park where top notch athletic competitions never fail to thrill and inspire.

Setting: The Madison Guest House greets the visitor with an inviting country garden displaying a variety of seasonal flowers and shrubs that soften the urban landscape and lend a tranquil air to the cottage. Tucked behind a cedar enclosure you will find a quiet oasis with space for relaxing, reading or meditating as well as for casual dining...

Beer: Micro brews are another part of the culture and economy of the area that has seen steady growth in popularity. Home brewing is also well supported in the region and worth investigating. Several establishments in Eugene specialize in local brews and offer tastings periodically.. Some of these are within walking distance of this property..

Throughout Oregon wine has become a prominent part of the culture as well as the economy. Within Eugene and the Willamette Valley are some of the best wines produced domestically. Wine tasting tours , barrel tours, are offered at various times during the season. Tasting rooms are located throughout Eugene and are easily accessible by foot, pedal, bus or car.Micro brews are another part of the culture and economy of the area that has seen steady growth in popularity.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The Madison guest house is our home away from home. We love the home and location. Run or walk a few blocks to the Willamette bike path and rose garden with a coffee shop and brew pub on the way. Carolyn thinks of everything for her guests with gourmet coffee and lovely furnishings. We just love staying here!

Adorable and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful find, it was so adorable inside and out and was a perfect fit for my family stay in Eugene for a couple of nights. Everything was very clean and the house is full with everything you might need. The house is adorably decorated and you just feel instantly at home, even had a little bit of relaxing music playing when we walked in the door. Would recommend anyone to stay here and will for sure be staying here again, the next time we visit Eugene. Carolyn was very sweet and quickly available for a couple of questions we had when we were there.

Comfy & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

I brought my 2 adult children to Eugene for a family vacation and we truly enjoyed our time at this house! The location was so close to downtown which made everything convenient. The bedding and pillows were 5 star hotel quality! We had all we needed in the kitchen and everything was very clean!! We had a wonderful time and this home made it feel like home!

Very charming house. Beautiful inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week while my daughter was in the hospital. Having such a nice cozy place to come back to at the end of a long day at the hospital was so nice.

The details that have been put into this house are amazing and thoughtful. The whole house was clean and the beds were very comfortable.

The yard was very well maintained with lots of beautiful flowers. It was the first thing we noticed about the house. Very inviting.

I would stay here again for sure. A lot nicer and cleaner than a lot of motels I've stayed at.

I can't thank Carolyn enough for opening her home to us.

There isn't a single thing we didn't like or that I would change.

I would highly recommend this to everyone.

Comfortable home in great central location.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, feels larger than it is, home close to everything in Eugene. We come almost every year to cycle and this year we rented thus home to try something different and we are glad we did! It was very much appreciated due to the fact that it had air conditioning and had lots of room and comfort to our group that stayed there. We were happy to discover the incredible bakery about one block behind the house in an alley. The fisherman's market which is one of our favorite restaurants is only a couple of blocks away and downtown is only about a 10 to 15 minute walk. The house is located a hop skip and a jump from the bike paths that lead down to the Willamette River and very easy to get on the freeway from this house. The kitchen was well appointed and it was so nice to have coffee and tea already supplied and some leftover goodies from folks that had stayed there earlier as well as plenty of condiments which were quite appreciated as well as cooking utensils and appliances. We will definitely try to rent this house again next summer when we come down for our 5-day trip to cycle in Eugene and Cottage Grove.

Eugene, Oregon finds itself in the enviable position of being located less than two hours from the beauty and drama of the Pacific Ocean and the grandeur of the Cascade Range of the Rocky Mountains. For those interested in outdoor activities this area is unsurpassed. Fly fishing and drift boats, sailing and water skiing are all within a few minutes drive. A trip to the ski slopes is only a day trip away as is a walk on the beach at sunset and all the fresh seafood you can eat. For the competitive athlete Track Town USA is amazing . NCAA, Olympic trials, Eugene Marathon and multiple trail runs, half marathons,etc. consume the spring and summer calendar.

Other Activities: mushroom hunting, wine tasting, Beer Week,art and music festivals
