We found an amazing piece of land and had the privilege of beginning with bare land. We designed and oriented the location of the house to take in light, passive solar, and views of nature from every room. Out our back patio is the sound of the creek year round. There are very frequent sightings of deer, birds, turkeys and more. It's a place that allows for nature to permeate the soul.
Views of a nearby mountain, access to the creek, walking trails on the property. Good road cycling routes are right off our driveway. Nearby is the UofO, city of Eugene, restaurants, Emerald Valley Golf Course, wineries, nearby wedding venues, rivers for rafting, plenty of outdoor adventures.
Interaction with Guests
We meet guests with the key and for check in. We live on the property in a separate building than the house when rented. We highly respect your privacy and need for the outdoors, allowing you to forget we're here, but welcome your questions to make your stay more enjoyable or for tourism information.
Even though this property is away from it all, it is also very near civilization when desired. 6 minutes away a lovely café featuring local musicians Friday nights, another local bakery with local ingredients made from scratch, and all the necessities not far. There are several excellent wineries 15-30 minutes away. In Eugene, 15-20 minutes away are many local craft brewpubs. Emerald Valley Golf Resort is 6 minutes away.
This property has the best of both worlds with easy accessibility but very private and in the woods.
There is a public transit bus stop a 10 minute drive from the house.
Other Things to Note
There are no pets are allowed unless first authorized by owner directly. In that case there is an additional $100 pet fee. If an event of an unauthorized pet the full $300.00 refundable deposit will not be refunded and fully retained by owner. Wifi is available with our best known rural available option of DSL. Cell phone coverage is spotty so owners provide landline for unlimited calls within U.S. If you have need for streaming or several devices simultaneously desiring Wifi, please ask us ahead for specific details regarding quality. We are currently upgrading the speed and quality with a recently discovered option 5/22/14. Please ask if a concern.
We are interested in continuing to rent to the fantastic guests that are respectful of our house and property at least as well as if it was their own investment. We have fabulous experience renting to wonderful guests that are very respectful. If any accident or damage occurs, the common courtesy protocol of telling the owner and working it out fairly and respectfully is our continued desire. We are very reasonable and have confidence and trust that upcoming guests work this way as well.
Smoking is not allowed at all in the house. In only rare occasions it must be only on the patio or porch. The smell would be considered damage and Forest fires are at risk.
