We rolled into the Eugene area on the third week of our USA, road trip, & let me say we had stayed at many Bed & Breakfast properties along the way. This one was the Best! The first place to start is feeling welcome & wanted at a property, which Karen did so well. Tom was out of town, but we would like to return and meet him someday. We drove down the driveway to a beautifully designed home sitting in paradise-quiet along the McKenzie River. When you walk into the home it is large, warm and inviting. Our room was spacious, in fact every room was spacious with good use of space and ease of use. The bed and all the furniture is super comfortable. A highlight is the artwork throughout available for purchase from local artists and Karen! We were welcomed with a glass of wine and this wicked good appetizer featuring Tom's homemade bread and vegetables from the property cooked up by Karen into a delish ratatouille. The next morning's breakfast was perfection, starting with an apple pastry & the freshest fruit. Eggs and way you want.....I ordered poached, a little runny....they were spot on, and more of Tom's whole wheat bread! with a butter bell. :) Last, I would like to thank Karen and Tom for the cleanest B & B I have ever stayed. The bathroom was spotless, in fact, the entire property is very well taken care of. In summary, I give McK O B&B an A+ in every area. We will return.

Arriving from the Netherlands after a long flight and a two hour drive, we immediately fell in love with McKenzie Orchards B&B . Spacious, clean rooms, the best beds you can imagine and wonderful breakfast. We stayed for 6 nights and still felt sorry we had to leave... Hosts Karen and Tom gave us great suggestions for day trips in the area and beyond. We would love to come back one day...!

My girlfriend and I traveled to Eugene from Boston for her job interview and we had the great pleasure of staying four nights at the McKenzie Orchards Bed & Breakfast Inn (in the Paradise Bedroom). It was a joy getting to know our hosts Tom and Karen, who provided incredible hospitality, a wealth of information, excellent food, great conversation and laughs. They are truly warm and caring people who love what they do, and we were so happy that we chose to stay here. A wonderful time! Tom not only had great directions for us (around town and the state), but also was so knowledgeable and helpful with information about activities, events, restaurants, neighborhoods, and the local community. The beautiful home is a quiet and relaxing place to stay, and we found it very easy to get comfortable. Our room offered a nice level of privacy, great comfort and space. The spacious grounds gave us a nice chance to get an up-close look at turkeys, deer, lots of birds and hawks, and even a chance to feed apples to the horse next door! The serene location seems perfect for a bed and breakfast, surprisingly close to Eugene, but with the feeling of being “away from it all”. We would highly recommend staying here and will gladly tell friends about it. No complaints at all! We especially loved the delicious and creative breakfasts (with fresh locally-grown fruit, home-baked muffins, waffles, omelets, and quesadillas), the night-time snacks (with vegetables straight from their personal garden, cheese and great local wines), and especially the conversation. Tom and Karen were wonderful, and we cannot thank them enough for their generosity and hospitality and for making our time in Eugene so enjoyable. We greatly look forward to attending some cooking classes here after our relocation to the area!

On short notice, my wife and I planned a short trip to Eugene, OR to get a feel for the area as we search for that ultimate retirement location. Wouldn't you know, we picked the week of both the NCAA Track and Field Championships and graduation at the University of Oregon. But luck was on our side as we were able to get the last remaining room at McKenzie Orchards. What a Find! You can tell this is a home built to be a B&B and not a home converted to a B&B. Every detail is designed with the guest in mind, from the gentle rise of the stairs, to the convenience of an elevator, to the strategically placed outlets for the oh so necessary charging of gadgets, to the layout and location of the rooms so that you feel as if you are the only guest at the Inn. To say the food was very good is an understatement. Tom handmakes the breads and pastries from scratch every morning with something new each day. They even make their own jams/jellies from the fruits grown in their orchards. And while you eat in the spacious common area, you are treated to the works of local artists which hang throughout the Inn. As a matter of fact, we loved one so much it is now hanging in our home as a constant reminder of how special our stay was at this scenic and classy location. As for our hosts, Tom and Karen were the perfect mix of cordiality and helpfulness without being overwhelming. Want directions to anyplace, they get it for you with background info on your destination. If you want company as you feast on their great food and wine, you can't ask for better than these two. Intelligent, witty and very unassuming. Add to all of the above the stunningly beautiful and peaceful location and the convenience of being within a few minutes of Eugene, and you have the perfect formula for a fun, relaxing and memorable travel experience. I repeat….What a Find! David and Patti Smith Altadena, CA

We originally discovered McKenzie Orchards while searching for a dog-friendly BnB near Eugene while our son was attending UO. Although this is a few miles out from campus, the setting is lovely and the property is wonderful. We enjoyed our stays there so much that we booked the entire property (more than a year in advance) for our son's UO graduation this June. We had family members driving in and flying in from all over the country for the event. Karen and Tom went way above and beyond the call of duty to host all of us for a memorable weekend, including catered meals for as many as 22 (more than just our overnight guests). Although our son has now graduated and left the area, we will find an excuse to head up that way again, to a place we now think of as one of many homes away from home.

Karen and Tom were our host and hostess on the final night of our high school girlfriend reunion. It took some convincing to let us rent the guest cottage for one night, but they finally agreed. My four closest friends and I were exhausted from our travels through Oregon upon arrival at McKenzie Orchards B&B. We were also awe struck at the beauty of Oregon, but our final night in the guest cottage was the topper. We were able to sit out on the second floor veranda overlooking the McKenzie River and backdrop of mountains to the west while we enjoyed our last night close friendship while laughing and joking. All I can say is thank you Karen and Tom for helping me to give my friends one of the best memories we have made together. God Bless and God Speed.

What a find! The location of this B&B is absolutely beautiful, and the accommodations are upscale, comfortable and very reasonable. We are pissy travelers, and are too often disappointed with properties that are overpriced or otherwise are not as advertised. Not so with MacKenzie Orchards! If you are prone to dog-cations like we are, this B&B could not be more perfect with a couple of rooms that have easy access to the outdoors, and a huge field/meadow where the dogs can romp, play and run. We plan to visit Eugene more often now that we’ve found MacKenzie.

The McKenzie Orchards B&B is a delightful, relaxing get-away. I really loved soaking in the jacquzzi. We spent 3 days at the B&B, and supprised our hosts with an impromptu family party on Friday night. The Reid's were gracious and made everyone feel welcome and at home. If we are ever anywhere nearby, we will defineitly book another stay.

More pluses to this place than the brochure states! Owners have thought this place out and attention to detail makes the stay great.

We had an extraordinary weekend at the McKenzie Orchards B&B. Our room was beautiful, spacious and had all the comforts of home, plus a wonderful patio and view of the property. We were treated to a leisurely, sumptuous breakfast each morning, prepared with many homegrown fruits and vegetables. The hosts were very attentive to all of our needs. We will be returning next spring and plan to stay at the B&B again. Our highest recommendation to anyone looking for a quiet and pampered get-away.
