About Kenny Barr

We moved to Eugene separately, in 1975-1976. Both of us thought if we liked the area then we would stay, and if not we'd leave. We've never left. We love the Pacific Northwest, and especially Oregon. Loving Eugene says a lot about us personally. We enjoy meeting new friends, and know the area very well in case you're looking for some recommendations.

Please tell us a little about your planned visit. It helps us when we know who we're speaking with. Thanks.

Kenny Barr purchased this house in 1990

Why Kenny Barr chose College Hill

This is where we live year round. Our home is in the back of the property, in an apartment that's mostly over the garage (separate everything.) The location is ideal. Walking distance to groceries and restaurants; walking and bike trails along the Willamette river; the UO campus including Hayward Field and Matthew Knight Arena; buses that leave to the doorstep of Autzen Stadium a few blocks from the home; a short jog to both the Amazon Running Trail, and also the Prefontaine Trail. And there's an easy drive to the Oregon Coast, Cascade Mountains, Crater Lake, rivers and lakes, rafting and fishing, mountain biking, golfing and winter sports. An outdoor paradise.

Eugene also has a symphony, ballet, opera, galleries, the Bach Festival, and numerous cultural events. The Cuthbert Amphitheater in summer months is an unbeatable venue for concerts of all types.

What makes this house unique

One of 'Eugene's finest neighborhoods'. Quiet and tree lined, every home is different. The Location couldn't be better. In addition you get Jeanne and Kenny as your very gracious hosts.


* For Football Fans this home is approximately 3 blocks from the busses that will take you to the doorstep of Autzen Stadium. *

Guestbook comments from the owner

You made my son Dave's wedding so much easier for us! Thank you for your gracious hospitality. Beautiful home. I would recommend it, and you folks, as an A+++ experience. Be well.

Perfect Launching Pad!

  • 5 of 5

Close to campus and downtown! Comfortable beds. Well supplied kitchen - holy cow, there's even a wok! Short drive to the airport, McKenzie River, Corvallis, and beyond. Very clean, hospitable, and well worth every penny!

Great Area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Eugene and very much enjoyed the property. The owner was really gracious and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed. The house was very nice, user-friendly, and even though we had an intense heat wave without air conditioning, the house stayed cool because of all the lovely trees around it.

The outdoor area isn't terribly private but is beautiful and even has a nice view.

Highly recommended as the perfect hotel alternative!

We really enjoyed our stay at Kenny's house in Eugene. It's on a quiet, tree lined street. Very clean. Excellent kitchen. Comfortable beds. Easy access to stores and sites in Eugene. Lovely view of Eugene from the back deck.
