“Lovely Heritage House”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

We arrived after dark and the house is a little difficult to find as the streets are poorly lit but with a GPS, it wasn't bad at all. The house itself is well-lit and on a street corner. There just don't seem to be any street lights other than the corners and the neighbourhood is definitely older and a bit run-down. It is a five or ten minute drive off the I-5 when you don't know your way.

That being said, the house itself was lovely. Lots of antiques and decor to look at. Very clean and many details attended to. We stayed only one night. My back has been bothering me a lot lately and I managed okay on the bed in the Matisse room. Enjoyed a really tasty dinner at The Ring of Fire, very nearby drive.

The lounge areas are furnished with antiques as well which are so pretty but not the most comfortable to sit on for long. However, it is a Heritage house so part and parcel of it.

I appreciated the efforts in the morning to accommodate my gluten-free, dairy-free diet. Breakfast was simple, but very nice thank you.

We had to be in Eugene for a meeting, so decided to come down the day before. Jack was there to greet us when we arrived and gave us a short tour of the beautiful and historic house. The room was lovely and well laid out with a lot of little touches for comfort. Jack cheerfully accommodated our need for an early breakfast, which was delicious, and gave us great directions to the local Sweet Life Patisserie where we had fantastic desserts in a cheerful atmosphere. We will definitely stay again when in Eugene.

Spent only one night in this beautiful home , wish we could have stayed longer. Meticulously restored with wonderfully detailed exterior paint, carefully manicured garden and interior filled with lovely antiques - clocks, furniture and unbelievable grand piano. Owners very helpful and delightful .highly recommended.

My husband and I so enjoyed our stay here. The host, Jack, was gracious and helpful with a couple of suggestions for the rest our mini tour of this beautiful part of Oregon. The home, a fine Victorian, is beautifully restored, well-appointed and very comfortable. It is on a quiet residential street and has a stunning garden.

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay for one night while we visited his daughter at the University of Oregon. The weekend we had planned to arrive was completely booked. So we postponed our trip for a day and was lucky to find a room at this beautiful B&B. The owner, Jack, gave us a history lesson on the place. My husband loves historic buildings, so this was a true find. Since we were the only people there, Jack allowed us to choose any room we wanted, no extra charge. We chose the Monet room. For an old home, we barely heard any noise. Breakfast was a yogurt fruit parfait, banana bread, and an egg scramble. Oh! Don't forget to visit the butler's pantry where you'll find fresh fruit, fresh baked cookies, sodas, water, coffee, etc.,

The most beautiful and gracious B&B we have ever experienced. Jack was welcoming and helpful, the grounds were spectacularly landscaped, and we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite which was absoultely beautiful.

We recently stayed at this wonderful B&B. The accommodations were lovely, very clean and well managed and maintained. Our host, Jack, created a comfortable setting offering tips and recommendations. The room had everything a quest could require and breakfast was also a treat each morning. Guests were allowed to choose their time and this is not always the case in all B&Bs. We had a relaxing,enjoyable experience and would recommend this spot.
