TWO BEDROOMS WITH VIEWS ABOVE THE VALLEY
Two guests. Queen bed.
Bathroom en suite.
An elegant curved staircase with cast bronze railing leads from the art and antique filled main floor to this secluded mini-suite. Cozy and comfortable, sheltered by tree tops, this is the perfect room in which to relax after a game or curl up with a book. Leaded glass windows overlook the entire Willamette Valley and Autzen Stadium. The Willamette River runs below; osprey and eagles circle the tops of tall Douglas firs; wild turkeys wander through the neighborhood.
Unique, historic, romantic, secluded, built in the Roaring Twenties this romantic room softens the music of the trees to a murmur.
There is easy access to hiking, bicycling, and running trails. Pre's Trail is close by and Hayward Field, the most elegant track and field facility in the United States, is only .6 mi. away. The Matthew Knight Arena is even closer.
Vintage pieces from England, including a faux wood grained armoire for storing your clothes, furnish the room. A queen bed, en suite bathroom, and Victorian parlor stove complete the picture.
Visit for major events and stay a few extra days.
Track and Field:
EXPERIENCE THE TRADITION OF TRACK IN TRACKTOWN USA. THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY, LOOKING DOWN ON THE PREFONTAINE TRAIL AND NEXT TO PRE'S ROCK.
Two to four guests. Two double beds.
This wonderful room high above the Willamette River and Autzen Stadium accommodates two to four guests in dual full-size beds. Read and relax after a busy day in these comfortable quarters furnished with antique birdseye maple and cherry furniture.
The vintage bathroom, original to this 1928 home, is immediately across the hall from your bedroom.
This not a new house; it is an old house. Spots and blemishes are part of the aging process. We have not attempted to take this 90+ year old house back to being brand new. We have respected the wrinkles it has gained in time. Styles and fashions have changed, but we have remained true to the essence of an old family home.
This is not a house for minimalists. Collections are layered. Even a closet is turned into a mini art gallery.
A very special place and a very special feeling, just steps away from Pre's Rock and walking distance to campus this is the perfect place to relax after an active day. Most track and field fans are familiar with the location, the tradition, and the history of the residence.
Nearby are Hendricks Park, 78 acres of mature forest with Douglas fir trees over two hundred years old, and the 12 acre Rhododendron Garden containing over 6000 varieties of plants. Hiking, jogging, and birding are outside your door as is the marvelous 1.6 mile Ribbon Trail that laces through the park.
The University of Oregon campus and its event venues are within walking distance.
Guests have access to all common areas on main floor; these rooms include the main floor living room and dining room. The main floor balcony is also accessible. The main floor kitchen generally is NOT available for guest access without prior arrangements. Guests do not have access to the office.

While arrival and departure times are somewhat flexible, guests should make every effort to meet the times they set.
Airbnb was conceived as a way for hosts to welcome guests into their home. Over the years more commercial ventures have used this platform to simply make empty rentals available.I understand that this is what some people are more comfortable with; however, I hope that the full description on our site makes it clear that we believe in the original concept of Airbnb.

Avid readers, writers, art collectors, artists and gardeners. The restoration of our home in Eugene and the construction of our stone house in Mexico are our abiding avocations/vocations. It seems that both are works in progress as are our lives. We have transitioned from participation in politics at every level to focusing more completely on writing, gardening, making art and working glass. However, we do consider ourselves to be progressives.
After careers as professional educators and administrators we established an art gallery drawing upon our life long experience in the arts. From the art gallery we retired to a more peripatetic life living between Mexico and Eugene. We both have always been active in the nonprofit volunteer world and have moved from civic committee work to a greater involvement in environmental and homeless issues, and arts organizations. We have a cat named Stinky whom we love and a cat named Tramp who is a juvenile delinquent.
I am an inveterate collector and am of the belief that you cannot have too much of a good thing. My husband does not agree with me.
