About the property

Studio unit; conveniently close to town yet with a peaceful feel.

Fully enjoy your visit to Corvallis with the privacy and comfort of our unique guest studio. With sunflowers peeking at you on the second floor deck by summer and geese flying overhead through the fall and winter, your stay is sure to be a relaxing experience. The view of the surrounding ornamental and edible gardens from the deck is beautiful and ever changing with the seasons. Abundant flowers and fruits bring the hummingbirds and cedar waxwings close to your doorstep!

The guest studio is on the second floor with a private entrance. Its cozy 325 square feet includes a kitchenette, living room and bedroom combo, as well as a separate bathroom. There is a queen bed with an organic mattress, and thick folding foam mats that can be used for children upon request. This space is finished using sustainably harvested and low toxicity materials, including locally grown hardwood. It’s tucked away on a quiet street two miles from OSU campus, one mile to a local natural foods grocery store and adjacent to Willamette Park with miles of maintained trails and bike paths along the river.

Amenities include skylights, radiant floor heating under bamboo flooring, air conditioning, custom tiled shower, queen bed with an organic mattress, restful furnishings and a deck overlooking lovely gardens and natural open space.

About Katie Goldberg

We poured a lot of creative energy into creating this space so that our out of town families could have a nice retreat during their visits here with our family. We're happy to open it up to others to enjoy as well. We live across the garden from the Sunflower Guest Studio and have been renovating, building, creating and gardening here for fourteen years. We appreciate living amidst the natural beauty of Oregon, with the coast one hour away and the mountains just a two hours drive.

Katie Goldberg purchased this studio in 2010

What makes this studio unique

The studio is located within easy walking distance of the 287 acre Willamette Park. It features miles of walking and biking trails, a full frisbee gold course, playing fields, playground and Willametter river views and access. We really enjoy having this natural open space literally out our back door.

We loved our stay here! It is a darling studio with everything we needed. The hosts were great to work with and the studio is exactly as pictured. We will definitely stay here again next time we need accommodations in Corvallis.

Quiet Sanctuary in Corvallis

  • 5 of 5

I love this little studio! I felt like I was sleeping in a treehouse at night listening to the leaves rustle but with all the modern amenities like radiant floor heating, updated kitchen and appliances, cozy bed and luxurious of both worlds!

quiet and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I rented the studio for 4 nights. I came to visit my daughter, who lives and works in Corvallis. The studio was very clean and had all I needed. I loved coming "home" to this studio at the end of the day. Or, when my daughter was working, it provided and nice relaxing place to be. The surrounding area is perfect for walks. I was able to have my daughter over for dinner a couple of nights, as the kitchen was well equipped. The chickens were fun to greet in the morning, however I never heard a peep out of them. The decor was very warm and calming. I didn't run into Katie, the owner, but I felt well cared for. Thank you!

Felt like a second home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Studio for 1 month for purposes of spending some time with our son and 2 year old grandson. It was the best investment we ever made for it provided us a picture/timelaps of a 2 year old grandsons development stages.

The Studio had all the modern day amenities (even toys for our grandson), was very clean, private, and the AC worked as it was needed since Corvallis's temps exceeded 100 degrees in July.

It is located closed to the city,parks,restaurant,golf courses and still has the country feel.

We highly recommend the Sunflower Studio and will make our home away from home again on future visits to Corvallis.

Katie & Josh, thanks for your hospitality

Perfect for me

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 3 weeks at the Sunflower Studio. I came from Wisconsin to spend some time with my daughter and granddaughter. Having previously lived in Corvallis for two decades nearly 19 years ago, thisnteip felt like "returning home". This studio was the absolute perfect fit for me. The chickens provided a lot of entertainment each morning as I tossed them some scraps. The location allows for privacyas the studio is situated across a big beautiful yard/garden from the main house. The decor inside is a little "zen like". Beautiful and simple. It's well stocked with necessities. The food coop is less than 1 mile away; a lovely riverside park and walking trail is even closer. Downtown is about the same distance.

I teach a university online class - the studio was an excellent work environment for me while my grandchild was in school. The owners, Katie and Josh, were unintrusive while also very responsive. Overall, this was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this roomy studio.
