Beautiful, craftsman-style home in the hills, close to U of O

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,463 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and beautiful flower gardens

This beautiful craftsman-style, four bedroom, three bath home is only minutes from U of O, yet is tucked away in a quiet, tree-filled neighborhood, a three minute walk from Laurelwood Golf course. The house was built in 2007, combining classic craftsman exterior style with a modern interior and modern amenities, including central air conditioning.

The kitchen features cherry cabinets and granite countertops. It has Dacor stainless built-in appliances, including a five-burner gas cooktop, microwave, and a convection oven. There is a maple butcher-block kitchen island, with two bar stools for informal eating and chatting with the cooks. The kitchen is well-equipped with dishes, silverware, cookware, utensils, herbs, and spices. You will also receive a dozen farm fresh eggs and organic coffee with your stay.

The kitchen and dining room have a lovely hickory floor, while the living portion of the great room is carpeted. There is a cozy gas fireplace, a big flat-screen TV, Comcast, Netflix programs for a fee and a Blu-ray player with streaming capability. There is strong WiFi signal throughout the house for your laptops, iPads, iPods, and iPhones.

The master bath has a travertine tile floor, tub surround, and custom shower. It also echoes the kitchen cabinetry with a cherry vanity, mirror frame, and storage cabinet. It has twin sinks in the vanity. The two other baths have granite counter tops. The master bedroom and two other bedrooms are on the second floor. Each features a queen bed.

There is one bedroom on the main floor, with a queen-sized bed. The mattresses are high-end models, and are very comfortable. The living room and each bedroom has its own Comcast-connected TV and Blu-ray player. The Blu-ray players have Roku-like steaming capability, so that you can use your streaming services, such as Netflix.

There is a wooden deck just off the dining room with a teak dining set, and a natural gas grill. Enjoy the cool of the evening, having dinner or drinks on the deck. It is so lovely and so relaxing that you will never want to leave.

Recreation opportunities abound. In addition to the convenience of the nearby Laurelwood golf course, you can take a day to raft the McKenzie river, make a day trip to the giant dunes at Florence, or go mountain biking on the famous singletrack of Oakridge, home of Mountain Bike Oregon. Oakridge is an easy, scenic, one-hour drive from Eugene.

You can charge your electric car while at the house, with a regular wall outlet, or a level 2 EVSE. Please note all renters must be 25 years of age and produce a copy of a valid drivers license.

This home rental is so beautiful that I fell in love with it.

What makes this house unique

Lovely house for a family trip

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood. We had a wonderful time there. The manager and owner were really easy to work with. The stove was not functioning perfectly, but overall, it's still a great place to stay at.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know something was wrong with the stove. I replaced the light bulb and was unaware the stove was not working perfectly. We are always available and encourage guests if something is not to their satisfaction to contact us right away. Thank you for staying with us. Hope we see you again. Sincerely, Pam Basilius

Very nice, recommend!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house - well located, maintained and well kept. Fresh eggs and coffee beans are a nice touch. I'd suggest that the add either mention that you need to bring your own soap and shampoo -- most VRBO houses I've been to have those available so was a bit surprised that only a hand soap was provided.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Our apologies, we keep soap, shampoo and hair dryers in each bathroom for our guests. Apparently the previous guests had taken the soaps and shampoo. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. Hope to see you again.

Family Winter Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property. The home is beautiful, spacious, very comfortable and in a beautiful, serene location. The house is well laid out and suited our adult family. The flow of the kitchen, dining, and living area is perfect for family interaction. The bedrooms are a perfect size and the beds are the most comfortable beds I've slept in at a rental property. The bed linens and towels are a great quality. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials and I especially appreciated the "green" cleaning products . Great grill and patio. Close to Vineyards, the coast, and great walks around town or along the Willamete River. I hope this property is available for my next trip to Eugene.
