My sister and I visited Eugene to attend my sons wedding. We were looking for a place that not only was safe and comfortable, but relaxing and a special treat! We found the perfect place at the Oval Door. The hosts Nate and Brian were exceptional and the breakfasts were outstanding! I would highly recommend staying here!
We are so glad you two had a good time! We absolutely loved having you stay! Brian's working on new recipes as I type, so you'll have to start planning your next trip :) Looking forward to seeing you both again. (Thanks so much for the review!)

We are so glad your first experience was a good one! Hopefully we'll see you again! Thanks for visiting and for the review!

This B & B is so welcoming and comfortable. The breakfast are perfect. I've stayed twice now and when I leave, I can't wait to go back again!
5 on May 11, 2016
I have stayed at the B&B several times while visiting my son who attends the University. The location is great for walking to the library, Bijou Movie theater and excellent restaurants. The B&B breakfast is fantastic and the rooms have everything one needs. An additional perk is a pass (small fee) to the Downtown Athletic Club which is a great fitness center.

What a gem of a place. Great location. Great breakfast. Great decor. The only thing I would suggest is to put lotion in the rooms. I loved my stay here. Will definitely choose this spot again.
5 on May 03, 2016
Wonderful place to stay. Easy walk to restaurants. Breakfast was so, so good! The hosts are fun to visit with. This B & B is very clean and welcoming. Our room was up two flights of stairs, so might be a problem if you have issues with stairs. You are welcomed with a glass of wine you pour yourself from a bottle with no label. My only complaint would be that they serve a local wine with the label on it!

We just spent 3 nights at the Oval Door B&B. Our room was lovely and spacious; the breakfasts were delicious, plentiful and varied each day. Nicole was our host during our stay - what a delightful host she was! And since we had to leave on our final day for a very early plane, she packed us both "breakfasts to go" - her suggestion! Eugene is such a compact city that everything we wanted to do was within a 5 minute car ride or a 15 minute walk - a great location for the B&B.
5 on February 20, 2016
This was a repeat stay at the Oval Door and,, as always, we truly enjoyed the excellent made to order breakfasts, the attention of In-keepers Melissa and Nicole, the ambiance of the cozy bedroom and library and living and dining areas. Everything was super clean, well-thought out, and ready for enjoyment by guests, even homemade cookies and complimentary wine. How many other B & B's provide ear plugs for guests with sensitive hearing?!!! It was not noisy but I found it an example of the thoughtfulness and efforts of our hosts to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I cannot recommend the Oval Door highly enough!

From the cozy well appointed room, to the magnificent breakfast, to the heartfelt welcome and introduction to Eugene - everything about this stay was a real delight. Looking forward to a reason to be in Eugene again before too long so I can have another stay at this extremely well run B&B. 5 stars all the way - you will love it!

My stay was wonderful. Upon arrival the inn looks a little more old fashioned then I realized from the pictures online. But as soon as I got inside I got to experience a wonderful and beautiful inn with so many amenities that were thoughtful and kind. Melissa showed me around and was so kind and understanding. The breakfast was amazing both mornings and they were considerate of my food allergies. If you are looking for a cute and central place to stay in Eugene then this is the pace for you. Thanks for the great experience Oval Door!

We stayed in Forget-me-not. Very nice room. Clean and bright. The breakfast was fabulous. Location-wise this place is great. Walk anywhere downtown. Zero complaints, would highly recommend!

I've stayed at the Oval Door many times since 2004. I love it! Excellent food. Close in for Eugene. Very attractive rooms. And most important, the innkeepers are the best. They are personable and very welcoming!

Larger more comfortable rooms than typical bed and breakfast, very nice stay.

This charming yet modern inn has a great location close to downtown and University of Oregon. The furnishings are comfortable and attractive, and downstairs there is a wraparound porch with tables and a swing, and an old fashioned library. Breakfasts are generous and creative. Rooms are quiet and clean, with a small frig available on each floor. Stairs may be difficult for some guests.

We chose the B&B for its central location in downtown Eugene. The staff was friendly and room was nice. The breakfast was great and quite filling. I would stay here anytime I come back to Eugene.

This was my first B & B stay and I loved it. I felt very at home and completely safe. They showed great attention to detail without be fussy. I was concerned about noise from other rooms or hallway traffic, but this home is very quiet! I never heard a thing! I look forward to visiting again.

Lovely place! It was a pleasure meeting Nicole and Scoop. The room was clean and cozy. The whole building is decorated with great taste and makes you feel at home. My husband and I found both our breakfast choices delicious and filling. Overall, it's definitely the place to stay in Eugene.

A perfect two day stay with the best in a morning breakfast and visit with pleasent like minded guest.

I enjoyed the environment of the house. It's very clean and tidy, gives you the amenities you need and the other occupants were delightful at breakfast. Breakfast was very good. The menu had things in it I've never had before.. The poached pear was delightful and loved the Gruyere cheese in the omelette!! I especially like the lication since my son lives less than 6 miles from the Oval Door. Will definitely stay here again!

Visiting my son at the UofO with my sister, we has the good fortune to stay at the Oval Door. This beautiful old home with its vintage decor is so very charming. The "room keeper" was lovely, helpful, and engaging.

Loved this well run and very comfortable B&B. I will stay here in the next visit to Eugene Bill &Joanne Vancouver,B.C.

This charming B&B is our favorite place to stay when visiting Eugene. The rooms are all great, well appointed with nice decor. The large house is lovely,quiet and has a lot of character, including a library! Nicole and Melissa are wonderful, providing their guests with anything they may want or need. Breakfast is our favorite with a two option menu complete with fresh juices and home made muffins. We lingered over our meal at our last stay to enjoy the company of our fellow guests. Coming back next month!
5 on January 31, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Bamboo Room! The Oval Door is a lovely home with great service and spectacular breakfast! I only wish we could have stayed longer!
5 on January 11, 2015
Stayed two nights and truly enjoyed the room and hospitality. My Host was extremely happy and that made the stay even more enjoyable. I was in Eugene for medical, and being nervous, this very nice B&B along with incredible breakfasts made me feel more like being at home. The room was very clean and well maintained. Will be staying here again, but for FUN reasons!!!!!!!

Sweet details-- the Christmas decorations happened during the stay, and transformed the already lovely space into a very festive and magical place. I always enjoy Nichole, she is a very kind and talented chef. I love the emphasis on a fruit and whole foods.

I will definitely stay at the Oval Door on my next visit to Eugene!
5 on November 22, 2014
I stayed for two nights at the Oval door and when I arrived, I was severely jet lagged, I have to say, the minute i stepped into the room, I felt so relaxed and I slept like a baby, the bed is so comfortable. the room looked so beautiful. the following morning, I had breakfast prepared for me by Nicole, best breakfast ever!!! Nicole was so nice and helpful, and such a great cook. Overall, this stay at oval Door B&B is one of my best memories in Oregon!
5 on November 17, 2014
Melissa and Nicole are the most gracious hosts and provide outstanding breakfasts and tasty treats for your room. If you aren't hungry when you awake, you will be when you open your door and take in the fragrant aromas of baked goods and breakfast downstairs. The rooms are spacious, very clean and well appointed right down to the robes and complimentary glass of wine in the hall refrigerator. We stay at the Oval Door every time we are in Eugene and this is the most comfortable and relaxing home away from home. The Oval Door is located within a few blocks of downtown where there are plenty of excellent restaurants and several music venues that provide a wide genre of music. We have been visiting the Oval Door for years, as recently as last week, and would recommend the Oval Door to anyone whether for a night or a week.

I ALWAYS stay at the Oval Door when in Eugene. It's the most homey, comfortable B&B I've stayed in. I love the rooms (stayed in almost all of them), the wonderful breakfasts, the service and the helpful recommendations of Melissa and Nicole (owners). I can't say enough nice things about The Oval Door.. Great location also.

We stayed at The Oval Door for 2 nights. Not long enough. Very friendly. Great management. The breakfasts were unique, and outstanding each morning. It was quiet at night, even though it was downtown. The scent of fresh chocolate chip oatmeal cookies was always in the air, as they were baked daily. Good location. Excellent food. Wonderful people. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. For my Father, it was a great 1st B&B experience, but set a standard difficult to follow. Ken
4.8 on September 02, 2014
You can't beat the location. It's an easy walk to downtown, several good restaurants, cute shops, the Saturday Market, the Fifth Street Market, and Univ of Oregon. Our room was small but comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent, with sweet and savory options every morning. Melissa, one of the owners, is a real estate agent. We are interested in relocating to Eugene, so she took us on a tour of neighborhoods and properties, and marked the neighborhoods we liked on a map for us. She is patient and very knowledgeable about the area. This isn't an overly fancy B&B, but it's very homey and comfortable. We will definitely stay again at the Oval Door.
4.6 on September 02, 2014
Worry free, clean and friendly. Gracious hosts with coffee service and a great on time breakfast.

I am a regular at the Oval Door whenever I travel through Eugene. This B&B is superb.

This B&B is very well run by two charming ladies. They both have a love of food and entertaining, which is evident in every aspect of the B&B. The room was super comfortable, and the breakfast was outstanding - we loved our stay. Also, the complimentary beverages and cookies are a great touch!
4.8 on August 23, 2014
We were pleasantly surprised with our spacious room (Queen Ann's lace), the tasty breakfast, not to mention to complementary wine, beer, coffee, cookies, etc. and were glad we chose a B&B within walking distance to many good restaurants.
5 on August 16, 2014
Room is clean and the right size for 2 people. Our room does not have a bath tub, only a shower, but that was fine with plenty hot water. Very quitet neighbourhood. Having breakfast with other guests were nice. And it was tasty as well. Highly recommend this place!
5 on August 08, 2014
Loved this B&B. My fiancée and I stayed in the forget me not room. The rooms was in spectacular shape, very clean and orderly. The Oval Door is situated in an easy to get to location with lots to do nearby. The breakfast was the best I had ever had, but don't tell my fiancée ;). I'm putting down the oval door as my go to place when I'm travelling to Eugene.
5 on August 06, 2014
Very accommodating, we arrived late and they gave us information on how to get to our room. Breakfasts were delicious! And the whole house is very charming. I will be visiting again
4.6 on July 28, 2014
I was very happy with the accommodation. We stayed in the Wild Rose room and it had a twin bed for my teenage daughter. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. The breakfast was outstanding. Fresh fruit, homemade scones that were still warm and a poached egg on whole grain bread, avocado and tomato. If my daughter decides to attend UO I will definitely stay again. I would highly recommend the Oval Door.

So helpful in every way. Great breakfast! Comfortable bed and good air conditioner!
4.4 on July 21, 2014
We were met at the door by the owner, Melissa, who welcomed us to drop off our suitcases in the room before the actual check-in time since it was much too hot to leave them in the car all afternoon. Her hospitality (especially the food!) was exactly what we needed. We also purchased the Oval Door Cookbook which promises many more exceptional breakfasts in the future. Thank you!

I discovered this BB a few months ago, and so far have stayed there twice as I occasionally travel the I-5 corridor from California to Washington. I plan to continue to make this my overnight in Eugene. Can't say enough good things: the house itself is charming and has an interesting history; the bedrooms are beautiful; everything is very clean; if you want to relax without going anywhere there is a library with lots of reading material, comfortable places to sit, a computer, and wine and glasses for you to help yourself; the living room and areas on wraparound porch have inviting furniture; parking is off-street and lit; there is a buffet outside the bedrooms with help-yourself water, tea and cookies. Breakfast itself is a treat. The owners are accomplished chefs and the breakfasts are delicious. You can also sign up for the time you would like coffee delivered to your room in the AM (one of my favorite "perks") All in all, I highly recommend this BB.
5 on July 07, 2014
I enjoyed my stay and will come back

Such a comfortable oasis! Very cozy and appreciate all the special homey touches like readily available coffee, tea, beverages and cookies. Alot of care has gone into this place. Wonderful breakfast!

Nice place, friendly host, great breakfast. Also a good location - quiet neighborhood street walking distance to perfectly good food. Very comfortable living room, provided wine, beer, soda, coffee, tea all day - this was a rare treat. Breakfast was outstanding. Room was nice - nothing special, but a perfectly nice b&b room. Will be first choice if I return to Eugene.
5 on June 07, 2014
This is a delightful retreat within walking distance to downtown, but quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is in the dining room and is perfect for morning conversations with fellow travelers. The food is superb. There is complementary wine and beer available. It felt like going home to Mom's house, well at least those Mom's in the movies and books. Good night John boy! We were there for two nights. We were in town looking at property. Then we headed up to the Seattle area for a few days. We loved our experience so much we booked an extra night on our way home to Sacramento. This will be our go to place as we make our plans to move to Eugene next year. Dan and Ruth

My sister and I had a very nice 1 night stay at the Oval Door B & B in Eugene, Or. It is very convenient location, we were able to walk to dinner and downtown. From the book full of menus, to the freshly baked cookies it was all we needed for a very enjoyable stay.
5 on May 09, 2014
Being a frequent and far ranging traveler for more than twenty years, I have encountered the entire spectrum of the hospitality industry. From Five Stars in London to tents in the arctic's northwest territories. And without reservation or exception, I can say that my three night stay at Eugene's "The Oval Door" B&B was comprehensively the best travel accommodation I've ever had. From the big picture: the location walking distance to downtown, to the layout, perfect in size and proportion, ease of parking, exceptional cleanliness; to the details, the best breakfasts I've ever eaten in a B&B, the coffee stations, the ease and efficiency of communication of guest needs, the library, the "hands-off" not hovering and trusting the guests to be conscientious and courteous without going over a textbook sized list of rules. The experience was all the more surprising as, from the names of the guest rooms I had lesser expectations, but I found the owners Melissa and Nicole to be exceptionally educated and supremely good at their business. In fact, as I lay in the king sized bed on the third floor looking out the window at the electric green foliage covering the property's 200 year old trees, I thought about asking if they would consider copying their business model in a franchise. It's that good.

I love this B&B. When I can't get in I am so disappointed. Just had another lovely experience there this week. Cathie from California
5 on April 16, 2014
My husband and I were headed down to California from the Seattle area on a road trip to visit friends, so we decide to stay in Eugene for the night. We booked a room in the Oval Door for a Thursday night and they offered a mid-week discount which was nice. We were greeted warmly and ushered to our room after being offered a glass of wine and freshly baked cookies. The room was so lovely and welcoming. They really put effort into small details that made the space extremely comfortable. The next morning we enjoyed visiting with other guests as we were treated to a truly delicious breakfast. We were so pleased with our stay that the following week on our way back up the coast in the pouring rain we called the Oval Door and took their last room for the night. We didn't have any qualms leaving the coast for Eugene to what felt like our home away from home!
4.0 on April 05, 2014
Perfect location - easy walk to wonderful restaurants, Kiva market (amazing local wine collection), the train station, and pleasant walks. Very efficiently and comfortably run. One small issue with short supply of hot water, but the owners are getting that fixed. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept soundly.
4.8 on March 30, 2014
This was my first stay in a bed and breakfast. It was just the calm and relaxing moment in time I was looking for. I went in with some thought in my head of what it would be like, and left with knowledge that it is something so wonderfully different. I hope to plan more stays both here at The Oval Door as well as other places across the map!
4.6 on February 24, 2014
I was in Eugene for just one night for a job interview, and decided to stay at the Oval Door rather than a not so nice motel nearby, and I am glad I did. We stayed in the English Daisy Room, since it was the cheapest, and we're still in university and therefore trying not to spend all our money in one night! It was worth the difference to stay here rather than the motel. While the room was nothing too fancy, it was nice for the night and had everything we needed! We roamed around the rest of the house a bit, and it was perfect for just the one night. We arrived after hours, but there is a person whose available overnight for assistance who showed us around, which was great! There was complimentary beer, wine & cookies! We also got coffee delivered to our door, which was wonderful! The breakfast was also delicious! I'm vegetarian, and they accommodated my needs, although I would probably let them know in advance if vegan, since everything I ate besides a grapefruit (which was so yummy since they broiled it) had dairy in it. The owners let us check out late even though we had forgotten to mention it earlier, so that was really wonderful. If I am back in Eugene for a visit, I'll definitely consider The Oval Door.
5 on February 18, 2014
Everything about this place is pure hospitality. Laid-back, comfy - it feels like you're at your favorite relative's house. Beautiful library, plush couches and complimentary beer and wine. It's a low key place to settle in and relax. Great location to walk to restaurants, and an incredible breakfast feast in the morning. I won't stay anywhere else when I'm in Eugene.
5 on February 10, 2014
This is the third time we have stayed at the Oval Door - and every time the stay has been wonderful. The rooms are always comfortable and exceptionally clean. The breakfasts are worth the stay alone! Many B&B's require that you have breakfast at a set time - here you can have breakfast at any time within a two hour period - plus you have a choice of breakfast items! (You can also order in-room coffee in the morning) Both Nicole and Melissa are wonderful hosts and really want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
5 on January 16, 2014
We have stayed many times at the Oval Door and it is always our first choice of a place to stay in Eugene. A very convenient location for walking downtown or to the river walk and exceptionally friendly and helpful inn keepers. Plus the breakfasts are delicious.
4.8 on January 01, 2014
The Oval Door is very clean and quiet, and the innkeepers are respectful of the level of privacy guests require. It is conveniently located near downtown Eugene, and free parking is provided. The breakfast is delicious, may be delivered to own's room, and my request for vegetarian, gluten-free meals were accommodated. My only, very minor complaint is that I didn't see any of the "homemade cookies" mentioned on the website!

We stayed in the Morning Glory room - at the top of the B & B and it was wonderfully private - and spacious. The owner was very helpful with making recommendations about activities, restaurants, etc. And the breakfasts were outstanding. We're very sensitive to noise and the location was a little noisy, but either keeping the window closed or using earplugs fixed that. We will definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Oval Door in Eugene. A short walk to the downtown (many great restaurants, art galleries, exhibits and the Saturday Farmer's Market, which is exceptional) and not a far drive to many local wineries. On-site parking, friendly and welcoming hosts and terrific food/breakfasts. The house itself is lovely, with a wrap-around veranda, and our room was clean, quiet and very well-appointed. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks for your stellar contribution to our Oregon adventure.
4.8 on September 22, 2013
Fantastic bed and breakfast with wonderful touches such as coffee delivered to your room in the morning and chocolates by the bed. Complimentary beer and wine are available for guests to enjoy along with delicious homemade cookies. It truly feels like a home away from home with guests sitting around the dining table for breakfast exchanging stories and tips for things to do. Will stay again next time I am in Eugene however the bamboo room beds were rather uncomfortable so will choose another room.

We've stayed at the Oval Door B&B many times and always enjoy it. The location is outstanding, literally within short walking distance to the very interesting downtown. It is in a lovely neighborhood with many fine old houses. The inn itself is always clean and inviting; the staff couldn't be nicer and the breakfast is the best! I highly recommend The Oval Door for anyone staying in the Eugene area.

5 on August 24, 2013
Owners and staff were warm, friendly, and welcoming. The flexible breakfast schedule and coffee in your room in the morning was unsurpassed. And, breakfast was delicious! We stayed for 5 nights and every morning breakfast was different. The room was always clean, and the bathroom spotless. It was nice to sit outside on the porch and read or have coffee or a glass of complimentary wine. We had a very relaxing stay and would love to come back someday! Thank-you from the happy couple from Connecticut!

Very clean and comfortable room. Fresh, healthy choices for breakfast. Super delicious, too! Only a 3 or 4 block walk to the Saturday Farmer's Market. A 7 or 8 block walk to a bike rental shop and to the Park along the Willamette River.

Great food, great room, great house, warm staff. Oval Door made my stay in Eugene comfy and easy. Loved it!

Melissa and Nicole have created the ideal B&B environment. Their hospitality is second to none! The food is fabulous. Our bed was the most comfortable and the sheets the thickest, softest I've ever slept in.

the Oval Door is exactly what you'd expect in a top level B&B. luxury,charming and beautiful baths. a romantic friendly feel, topped with a sumptuous breakfast. thank you Melissa for a wonderful experience while staying at the Oval Door. oh and a great location.

The owners of The Oval Door were as charming as their establishment and very helpful as well. We had a very late arrival and they gave us accurate driving instructions as well as easy entry into the bed and breakfast. Breakfast was one of the primary reason's we booked our stay at The Oval Door and it was truly delicious.
4.4 on August 09, 2013
This is my very first B&B stay. This visit to Eugene was to be visiting with people so the road work right in front of the inn did not dampen the stay as much. I would definitely enquire about any unavoidable situation like that in the future when I want to return for a quiet relaxing stay. Otherwise, I love the hosts, the people I've met. The bed is very comfortable. Room and bathroom is very clean. And I woke up every morning (not an early person) to be able to eat Melissa's cooking. I would definitely be looking at Oval Door for my next visit to Eugene. Thank you everyone for a lovely stay.

The Oval Door has everything we were looking for in this style of vacation. Welcoming, relaxing, super clean beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, friendly and a great location. This B&B is perfectly siituated where we could park our car and stroll downtown where there were many choices for dining, shopping and a super Saturday farmers market. thanks to Melissa being the perfect hostess, even packed an early morning Togo breakfast to catch an early early morning flight.
5 on July 20, 2013
This was my second time staying at the Oval Door - the first time was so exceptional, I had to come back. And this time I brought the whole family! The Oval Door is just a wonderful place to stay, location is perfect and the food is splendid. Melissa and Nicole are there to make your stay perfect, and willing to meet any request. You won't regret your stay at the Oval Door!
5 on July 05, 2013
Everything was just as promised. The owners were delightful. And breakfast... absolutely scrumptious!

Had a delightful stay. They were able to accommodate our daughter joining us for Fathers Day breakfast. Felt at home. Able to hang out in the quiet house.
4.8 on June 10, 2013
We came down for a one-night stay for our daughter's wedding in Eugene. Easy, easy deal! Plus, the room was comfortable, clean and the food was excellent!
5 on June 10, 2013
I have stayed at the Oval Door several times. It is perfectly located for anything in Eugene, parking is sufficient and the grounds lovely. They did everything just about perfectly (and I do visit a fair number of B&Bs). Perfect cookies; FABULOUS owners/service; charming rooms. Would not seriously consider staying anywhere else in Eugene!!
4.8 on June 04, 2013
Lots of extras and a gourmet breakfast to boot. Wine in the evening and a fridge with soft drinks and beer all day. Walking distance to everything. Great hosts.
5 on June 01, 2013
The Oval Door is clean, quiet and comfortable. Walking distance to the Saturday market and town and located on a tree-lined neighborhood street. The breakfasts are fantastic and the owners are friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended as a place to stay in Eugene.
5 on May 28, 2013
The nicest b&b hosts I've ever met! I would definitely stay here again! The house made me want to cozy up and enjoy the day right there at the house. Breakfast was super delicious, and the company at the table was pleasant.
4.6 on May 27, 2013
We had a delightful stay here. Melissa was wonderful to meet our needs. I would recommend the Oval Door to anyone traveling to Eugene, OR.
3.6 on May 26, 2013
Overall, we would give this B&B four stars. We have not stayed at B&B's before, so do not really know how it compares. Everything was perfect; the food was outstanding.

Very romantic and cozy. Larger room than was expected, and wonderful breakfast and amenities. Outstanding value. Thanks!

We stayed a night at the Oval Door because we were seeing a show at the McDonald Theater. We walked to the theater, as well as the Ninkasi Brewery and then in the morning strolled around the University of Oregon campus. Breakfast was delicious and our room was adorable. Thanks!
5 on April 08, 2013
The home, the welcome, the accommodations, the arrival cookies & refreshments, the wonderful breakfast, and the other guests ALL contributed to a memorable stay. We arrived tired, and departed feeling refreshed, renewed and looking forward to a future visit at The Oval Door. Don't miss this gem if you are visiting Eugene.
4.0 on March 31, 2013
Very classic environment with cozy, clean, rooms! Staff are very accommodating and helpful, we were offered complimentary drinks upon our arrival. Downsides: walls are paper thin, I felt like the whole house could hear us at whisper tones, if it was a full house I could only imagine we would've heard everyone else too. Was expecting more from breakfast, and more choices to choose from. But overall was a very lovely experience at a great value, will return!
4.8 on March 20, 2013
Beautiful bed and breakfast located in a very nice easy going downtown Eugene neighborhood. Wonderfully decorated, fabulous meals, very comfortable, friendly hosts. Every detail was perfection. Walking distance to conveniences. Easy access to shopping, freeways, etc. I was unfamiliar with the area but found that I could easily navigate to anywhere I needed/wanted to go. I look forward to return visits.
4.2 on March 12, 2013
Inn keepers have thought of everything to make you feel at home. Quiet neighborhood and excellent breakfast.

Great location, fabulous innkeepers, clean and comfortable...they think of everything!
5 on March 05, 2013
My husband and I are re-locating to Eugene and stayed in the Oval Door before purchasing a home. Nicole and Melissa made a possible stressful time for us a very pleasant situation. From the gourmet breakfasts to fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, it felt as if they were always available tending to our every need and endless questions without being the least bit intrusive. I look forward to staying with them again sometime and will definitely recommend it to our out of town friends and family. Shelby & Tommy Young
4.8 on March 05, 2013
Actually a Christmas gift from our daughter. Our visit was luxuriously relaxing. The immaculately kept older home was charming and we felt very welcome to spread out into the main floor rooms. Still am wide eyed about the generous offerings in the hallway refrigerators. And fresh homemade cookies. Wow. Jan and MaryAnn Northey
5 on March 04, 2013
We love the Oval Door for its ambience, the quiet, the good beds and the scrumptious breakfasts. We also meet interesting people around the breakfast table.
5 on February 19, 2013
This is the 2nd visit I have made in 2 months, first with my husband then on a business trip to Eugene. I absolutely love the atmosphere and the owners as well as the night innkeeper are wonderful! I honestly look forward to the next time I have to travel. I leave 4 kids and a husband at home when I go and it is tough but having a nice comfortable homey place to stay helps. The winter special has made it workable for me to stay on business under our budget. Thank you!!! I/We will be back.
5 on January 24, 2013
OVAL DOOR provides consistently outstanding B&B in a welcoming, respectful enviroment!
5 on January 11, 2013
On our way back from the coast and stopped in Eugene to visit friends. We love the Oval Door and have stayed there many times. In fact when we are in Eugene we will only stay at this great B&B. The owners are so thoughtful and accommodating that you just think that you are at home. We especially love the cookies on every floor and sitting in the library enjoying a complementary glass of wine. Thanks so much Jean and Dewayne
5 on January 03, 2013
Our experience far exceeded our expectations. We much more pleased with our stay here than any other place we stayed on our trip. We will stay at this B&D any time we are in the area. Larry & Linda Dennis

I stayed here with my elderly mother for five days over Christmas vacation. The breakfasts are wonderful, the beds very comfortable, the owners delightful and the rooms charming. I highly recommend the Oval Door.
4.6 on December 02, 2012
The house is lovely and the service is wonderful. The only thing to be aware of is the bedrooms are up a long flight of stairs.
5 on November 25, 2012
Our second stay at the Oval Door was even better than the first. The neighborhood is ideal and the atmosphere is perfect.
5 on November 04, 2012
We have stayed at the Oval Door over a number of years on treks up and down I-5. It's always a treat and Eugene is a delightful city.
4.4 on October 28, 2012
After a full day of activities in Eugene, this was a delightful place to come home to and relax.
5 on October 17, 2012
We stayed at the Oval Door B & B for a weekend getaway and it was perfect. In addition to a spacious, quiet room, the breakfast was outstanding. I frequently stay at B & B's and The Oval Door ranks at the top of the list. A big thank you to Nicole and Michelle for the warm hospitality.
5 on October 14, 2012
My only hesitation in writing a great review of The Oval Door is that I'm worried I might not be able to get a room the next time I visit my daughter. It's conveniently located near downtown. The rooms are comfortable (and cute) and the breakfasts are gourmet good. There were some vegans in our group and our hosts made lovely options for them. On our last day, we had an early flight and our hosts made us a breakfast to take on the plane.
3.6 on September 19, 2012
Comolimentary drinks, book shelves, enjoyable guests, and comfortable location made our stay memorable one. By Oval Door, we will remember Eugene forever.
3.6 on September 17, 2012
The Oval Door has amazing chefs and a nice, comfy "living room" atmosphere. Being in an old house, however, you do get a lot of interior noise, the temperatures are hard to control if you want it cooler (maybe not often?), and the train noise is really loud.
4.8 on September 13, 2012
My wife and I have stayed in many B&Bs throughout New England as well as in the midwest. The Oval Door compares with the best of them. Rooms were beautifully appointed, spacious and clean bathrooms, and the food spectacular. The proprietor was friendly and very accomodating. We will be going back for sure.
5 on September 13, 2012
We arrived after normal hours, but were given clear instructions prior to our arrival of how to check-in. We were warmly greeted by the house keeper who happened to be on site when we arrived and she was able to provide great dinner suggestions. Our room was pleasant and the beds comfortable. The street traffic noise was a little loud around 7am (we opened our window while we slept). Breakfast was very good. A great deal for the price!
5 on September 07, 2012
This was our third stay at the Oval Door, and THE place to stay in Eugene. Excellent breakfasts, helpful and friendly staff, very clean throughout. Private baths in every room, free coffee/tea/wine/soda all day and night, and great homemade cookies should you need a snack. Internet service and WiFi. Highly recommend.
4.0 on September 06, 2012
I notified Melissa I would be coming in early in the AM (she confirmed) but was not told that my room would not be available when I arrived. Also, after driving 336mi to get here I was told that there was no bathroom for me to use because they were all in the rooms! Had to find my own bathroom & return at 2. Would help to have that clarified for other early birds. I only met one of the owners, Melissa. She was quieter than other B&B hostesses...didn't inquire about my stay or engage in conversation. She did get right on fixing the downed internet and made a great fritatta the morning I left! Otherwise, room/cookies/amenities fabulous. Parking lot is for smaller vehicles but plenty of on-street parking options. Superb location, lovely building.
5 on September 04, 2012
Had a really nice stay-- love the cookies and free beer! Little touches make such a difference. And the breakfast was delicious. Walking distance to shops and restaurants too.
4.4 on August 30, 2012
One of the nicest B&B stays I've ever had. The breakfasts were outstanding - fresh baked breads and pastries and local ingredients in the made from scratch main courses. Clean and comfortable bedrooms and public areas. Warm hospitality without being intrusive. Nicole and Melissa are terrific!
5 on August 27, 2012
Oval Door B&B is one of the best inns we have ever stayed at. The room was comfortable, the innkeepers delightful and the food outstanding. The location is perfect, we could walk to our son's apartment and to downtown restaurants. Looking forward to staying with them again in the near future.
5 on August 27, 2012
They had no rooms available. Why don't you check this before you keep bothering us for a review? Otherwise you get fake reviews.
4.8 on August 21, 2012
Although the B & B is in an older home, we had air conditioning in our room and everything we needed. The only drawback is having no elevator, which can be difficult if you have a heavy suitcase to lug up a long staircase.
5 on August 17, 2012
Another outstanding stay in what has become our "second home" when we visit our daughter in Eugene, Oregon. The Oval Door deserves 5 stars!
4.0 on August 14, 2012
I needed a place to stay for one night while traveling to the southern Oregon coast area. The Oval Door was about halfway for me. It easy to get to from the freeway, had plenty of places to eat nearby, and was a clean and comfortable stay.
5 on August 13, 2012
This was our first B&B experience, and wow, we were so impressed! The home is relatively new construction, done in the original style of the 1920's era neighborhood. The proprietors were very friendly and gave us very clear instructions on all aspects of our stay. We had a nicely appointed room, including having a private bathroom. But what really blew us away was the breakfast! Choice of an amazing home cooked egg frittata or sumptuous raspberry-sour creme pancakes to die for! Add in fun conversation with the other happy guests around the dinner table and we wished we had booked a longer stay!
4.8 on August 13, 2012
We always stay at the Oval Door when we come to Eugene to enjoy some "culture," i.e. performances at the Shedd.

4.8 on July 30, 2012
This is my third visit and I hope to come again. Lovely, convenient location, wonderful ammenities : access to fridge, beverages, home made cookies and out of this world breakfast! Highly recommend.
4.6 on July 30, 2012
The location is perfect (right in the middle... a walk from everywhere), the innkeepers were super cool and helpful, FRESH AMAZING COFFEE, free craft brews in the fridge, and lastly... the rooms were HUGE and really really nice. There is nothing I would improve!
5 on July 15, 2012
The owners have created an elegant, comfortable, and pleasant environment for guests. The shared areas are inviting. The smell of freshly baked cookies each day was comforting. A nice glass of wine on the lovely porch was delightful. Very nice to meet the other guests over a delicious breakfast. The Oval Door didn't raise room rates during the Olympic Trials which says a lot about these owners.
5 on July 08, 2012
The Oval Door was by far one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Our room was so comfortable and clean! Our breakfast was to die for and those late night cookies...Yum! Nicole and Melissa have a real gem...only place we will stay on our next trip to Eugene, Oregon!
5 on July 06, 2012
A lovely place with generous service and ammenities. Would stay again.
4.4 on July 06, 2012
My stay was short and sweet. But I can't recommend The Oval Door highly enough - My room was nice and clean and my bed was warm and comfy. This charming B&B also comes with Nancy, the loveliest hotel manager/caretaker you'll ever meet. As I had a super early morning train to catch, I missed breakfast, but Nancy made me a special little breakfast pack so that I didn't have to eat expensive-not-so-yummy-train-food. Wonderful stuff!
4.6 on June 25, 2012
We were greeted at the door by Nicole, who is incredibly gracious. She shared with us the operation of the B&B and then took us to our room at the very top of all the stairs on the third floor. Our room, the Morning Glory, could not have been more perfect or more comfortable. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, organization, or amenities! The bed was so comfortable that we actually thought about getting one just like it. King size and the best mattress ever! We look forward to staying there again.
4.6 on June 24, 2012
Right downtown, walk anywhere, lovely porch to relax on. Very quiet setting, easy parking. Big tub and high powerful showerhead, guest robes, big comfy bed with huge pillows, coffee brought to your room in the morning! I will certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
4.8 on June 24, 2012
My husband and I have stayed at the Oval Door many times and it is always a treat. There is warm hospitality and outstanding food. We like the location which is an easy walk to the main shopping/restaurant area and also isn't far from a delight river trail.
4.4 on June 19, 2012
Nice location walking distance to restauratns and stores. Owners were great. Perks such as beverages and library were unexpected. Everything was better than expected.
4.6 on June 12, 2012
This bed and breakfast was recommended to me and I was extremely happy with it and would recommend it again to anyone staying in Eugene. There was lots of room in the house to relax aside from the rooms, a guest computer, sofas, complementary wine and home made cookies. I really loved the breakfast, we had fritata and french toast - mmmmm.
4.2 on June 06, 2012
My stay at The Oval Door was quite a pleasant one. Nicole, the Innkeeper / chef, did a fabulous job at making us feel welcome. Highlights include enjoying complementary wine while sitting on the cozy window-seat in the library and indulging on the extravagant breakfasts that were freshly prepared. The total bonus were the homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies left outside my room. The only slightly negative point about the stay was the varying temperature throughout the inn- one room would be freezing and the next would be hot, so bring layers!
5 on May 22, 2012
I spent two nights here in May 2012. I've spent a lot of time in luxury hotels all over the world, but I've never been in a cleaner place with more impecable service! I highly recommend The Oval Door. The breafasts are amazing!
4.8 on May 16, 2012
The Oval Door is a great Eugene location and B&B. The ammenities were above and beyond and the breakfast was fabulous. I definitely recommend this B&B to those who like the intimacies of a home rather than a hotel!
5 on May 13, 2012
Everything was perfect. This was a perfect place to stay for Moms' Weekend. Fun on campus and quiet and relaxing at the B & B.
5 on May 09, 2012
and hotel had the same gracious welcoming. The breakfast was outstanding all from scratch and homemade. The warm cookies in the afternoon was a nice touch too! We will return!
5 on April 26, 2012
I stopped at the Oval Door in Eugene for a short vacation visit with family. I'd never stayed at a B&B before and I was delighted. The staff all were warm and welcoming, the room was very pleasant and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, and I had some wonderful conversations with the folks I met at the breakfast table. I plan to stop over the next time I'm in Eugene.
5 on April 23, 2012
Great location, very quiet, immaculate, comfortable the best breakfasts and gracious owners.
5 on April 15, 2012
The Oval Door perfectly combines elegance and casualness. Elegance: careful attention to detail; rhythyms of innkeeping attenuated to guest comfort; spacious well-kept sleeping and common rooms; unbelievably good food. Casualness: friendly, warm and open; in the center of the city, near downtown, university, and bike paths; very comfortable place to kick off your shoes and relax. Can't say enough good things about this lovely establishment.
5 on March 26, 2012
The owners and host are very welcoming with a relaxed atmosphere. The house is well kept. We stayed in the morning glory room. It was nicely decorated without too many decorations. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was nicely laid out. We had only wished we could stay another day to just relax and enjoy the soaking tub. The breakfast was delicious with two entree choices and a great fruit parfait and scones. The provide cookies, drinks and other things to help you enjoy your stay. It's in an easy to find location in dwtn Eugene. I would definitely recommend it and hope to go back.

We felt very welcome at the Oval Door. The staff provided for our late arrival. In the upstairs hallway, We found hot tea and coffee on a tray and a cookie jar of home-baked chocolate chip cookies. We signed up for what time we wanted coffee in our room the next morning and breakfast in the dining room. In our lovely room, there were chocolates by our bed, bathrobes hanging in the closet, and stamped postcards on the desk. The breakfast the next morning was outstanding. A different version of eggs Benedict using goat cheese, lox and a sour cream sauce. Talk about gourmet! Next time were in Eugene, we're booking again!

I have stayed at The Oval Door numerous times over the past 6+ years. It is always a place that enables me to look forward to business trips to Eugene. I can be very productive and very cozy simultaneously....and that cannot be said for many places. The location is within walking distance of the downtown core yet it is very quiet. The owners are very helpful but not intrusive. The food is delicious and I always want to stay longer than I can.
3.8 on February 05, 2012
We adored our time here. We are planning our next date weekend in the Queen Annes Suite again!

We stayed in the Morning Glory Room, it was beautiful. The service was nothing short of amazing! And can I say one of the best breakfasts ever! And I am dairy free and I let them know ahead of time and was well taken care of. I will be recommending this B&B to all of my friends and will definitely stay there again. W~
4.6 on January 30, 2012
We had a quiet & peaceful stay and enjoyed being able to walk to all the great shopping areas. The bed was so comfortable and the room & private bathroom...spotless! Fresh cookies & beverages available near our door each day. We will definitely return and can happily spread the word about...The Oval Door!

We were in Eugene for our nephew's gallery show. The Oval Door room and breakfasts were superb. And the inkeepers couldn't have been more accommodating. We had family in from California and Washington. We were able to meet in the living room prior to dinner and after the show. It was such a lovely place and worked perfectly for our needs
4.4 on January 17, 2012
I can not say enough about the incredible food we were served every morning during our three night stay. It was outstanding. We felt very at home at The Oval Door.

First of all the location of the Oval Door to Eugene central is great! Walking distance to many attractions. The theme and interior decor of the Oval Door was very comforting with antique and current furniture. It is very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Actually I did not want to leave. The breakfast food is to dye for...I was so spoiled!

Aces. If you can't like The Oval Door you can't like anything.
3.8 on October 16, 2011
We enjoyed the friendliness of the inn keeper and appreciated being left to ourselves. There's no air conditioning in all of the rooms only one that I know of. And the windows don't have blackout shades so street light kept me awake. And the bed was too hard for me but perfect for my husband. The food was very good and the rooms are nicely decorated. Overall comfy, warm and welcoming.
4.2 on September 25, 2011
We have stayed at the Oval Door twice now. Both times have been a very pleasant experience. They were very accommodating with our dietary requirements. I highly recommend staying at the Oval Door.
4.4 on September 25, 2011
We stayed in Queen Annes lace for two nights. Our room was very large and comfortable. The room had a portable airconditioner that was loud and turned on and off. I didn't think it cooled the room off the way Central Air would, but it was a heat wave when we were in Eugene. The proprietor Melissa was very nice and the property is in a nice quiet neighborhood. Lots of drinks including beer, win and soda were supplied through out the day. Just enough parking spaces and there appeared to be street parking available also. The food was good and there were wonderful cookies on our arrival. Overall a very nice stay.

This is the 2nd visit my husband and I have made to the Oval Door, and once again, we give it very high marks! The hostess, Melissa, greeted us at the door with warm cookies.

The location is perfect to walking to town yet peaceful for sleeping at night. Thanks for a wonderful visit!

My wife and I had a nice time staying for three nights. Melissa's breakfasts were amazing, there was always refreshments available, and the cookies gave me some extra pounds.
4.6 on August 30, 2011
very, very good. the only thing I would do differently would be to install a bathtub instead of a shower - but then that would mean taking-down a perfectly good shower, so what's the point of that? breakfast was very good - neither mingy nor overblown - though as a consumer of strong coffee, I still needed my espresso. the hosts are outgoing, thoughtful, and well-organized.

Our stay at the Oval Door greatly exceeding my expectations. The entire building was immaculate - from the common area, to the dining room, to the rooms we were assigned. The owners have thought of everything! We were greeted with complimentary wine, beer, tea, sodas, etc. Have a craving for something sweet? No problem - there are biscotti waiting for you. Everything was well-planned, from the amenities in individual rooms, to the "library" where you could pick up movies, music, games, books, etc. We only had one night at the Oval Door and could see spending a week, using it as a hub to explore the surrounding area. Breakfast was fantastic, from the juice selections to the egg-in-a-hole. Also, there are many restaurants within walking distance for a nice dinner. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I loved The Oval Door Bed & Breakfast in Eugene, OR. The innkeepers, Nicole and Melissa, are accommodating and personable, and they serve up delicious breakfasts (they are graduates of the Culinary Institute)- the fresh blueberry crisp was a wonderful 'starter,' and we were given a choice of two entrees that were different on each of our three mornings). The rooms are lovely- simple, but beautifully appointed and tasteful...it is one of the few B&B's that was not too 'girly' for my husband's taste. I would have appreciated an additional well-lit mirror to use when my husband was using the bathroom. The inn and the room was wonderfully clean, and the only reason I did not rate it with 5 stars for cleanliness was a faint odor of mildew from the shower curtain in the bathroom. We appreciated the complimentary beverages, water, wine, and homemade cookies available for guests, as well as the library, and the porch swing for reading and relaxing. I highly recommend The Oval Door, and we will stay there again if we have a chance to return to Eugene. Many thanks to Nicole and Melissa for our very pleasant stay! Mary Sue and Ben, Dallas, Texas

We were in town to ride the Blackberry Bramble Century. We needed an early start and the hosts made sure we had an early but tasty and nutritious breakfast before our 100 mile bicycle day! The cookies and tea whenever you want them are a nice treat!

My wife and I spent two great days at the Oval Door. Our room was larger and better appointed that we expected. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were gourmet quality. Homemade cookies and good wines are available in the late afternoon/evening. But do pay attention to the published arrival times or you may find no one to admit you when you arrive. We had to park on the street both evenings as there were inadequate spaces in the lot.

This is a beautiful B&B. Our room was lovely and the building was warm, welcoming, and charming. The breakfast was amazing! I would definitely recommend the Oval Door and would definitely go back if I was travelling through Eugene again.

Peaceful oasis, great breakfasts, love the coffee delivery to our room. Great to come back from a day in Eugene to the mouthwatering fragrance of baking cookies.

We chose to stay at the Oval Door over our "weekend off" from our 2 week college hunting trip of the west. It was lovely - the breakfasts were incredible and our fellow guests quite fun.
4.6 on July 28, 2011
The only thing that was wrong with our stay is that we should have arranged to stay in Eugene for at least one more day. The gals do a great job.
5 on July 28, 2011
We enjoyed a comfortable stay as well as delicious breakfasts. Melissa and Nicole were amazing hosts and even went out of their way to secure a reservation at another B&B for us in October (during a U of O football game) because they were booked. Also, my daughter forgot her calculator for an exam at U of O and they graciously lent her theirs for the day. The room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. The living room downstairs was inviting and wine, beer, sodas, and yummy homemade cookies are readily available. We will be back soon!!!
4.8 on July 12, 2011
We were very satisfied with our stay and will be staying there again if we are in the Eugene area. Food was exceptional and the rooms were large and comfortable.

No attention to detail is spared in making sure that your stay at the Oval Door is superb. From warm cookies to complimentary cold drinks to extra blankets and pillows....the innkeepers are always a step ahead.

A very clean and cozy B+B. I had a comfortable 3 day stay at the oval door and would definitely come back on my next visit to Eugene. The price was very reasonable and the breakfasts were wonderful. Highly recommended by this traveler.

Nicely renovated. Quiet location. Very good breakfast. Very clean and roomy room. Air conditioning is perfect and quiet. Bathroom has instant air heating. Parking is a bit tight (well it is a residential area) and under camera surveillance.

Very comfortable accommodations and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

The Oval Door is a lovely B&B in the heart of Eugeen, convenient, great food, nice room!

From the view of the towering horse chestnut tree out our 3rd floor window to the incredible breakfast (sensational scones, decadent eggs Benedict) to the homemade cookie jar (addictive!) to the dinner voucher and suggestion of a fabulous French restaurant (BELLY!), we couldn't have been happier with our one-night stay at The Oval Door. The room was sparkling clean and our little diamond-shaped window in the bathroom was charming. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the entire layour was open and uncluttered, unlike many other B&Bs where you can't sort out your things from their things. Nicole couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating and everything was just wonderful. I took a risk in on this one (internet reviews only) but was well rewarded for my trust in fellow travelers high marks for this charming establishment with THE single best breakfast in Oregon.
5 on May 19, 2011
We always look forward to staying at the Oval Door whenever we are in Eugene. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfasts are always delicious and well prepared. All the rooms were filled during our recent stay so the conversation at the breakfast table was lively and interesting. The innkeepers are always helpful and go the extra step to ensure that their guests are well taken care of. And, the smell of fresh baked cookies that greet you when you return every evening! We felt like little kids, running to the cookie jar.

Want coffee brought to your room in the morning? Enjoy gourmet breakfasts? Like a little complimentary wine? This beautiful, centrally-located b&b has all that plus free, off- street parking, gorgeous rooms with private baths, free wifi and a friendly, helpful staff. Enjoy!

I have been returning to The Oval Door in Eugene for 13 years. It is a welcoming destination when you are in Eugene, OR. Nicole and Melissa are wonderful cooks and innkeepers.
4.6 on May 15, 2011
This was a wonderful place to visit en route from Washington to California. The innkeeper was extremely accommodating and very helpful with restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was delicious. Will definitely consider this B&B on any future trips through Eugene.
5 on May 11, 2011
This is my 3rd or 4th visit and I am always very happy with the service, the cleanliness of The Oval Door. It is so nice to be greeted in the morning with the wonderful smells and smiles from the host. The rooms and decor is warm and inviting and Nicole is ther perfect hostess. Ron Oster San Diego Ca.

Loved the rooms, the food, the people, the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Fantastic place to stay. It was very peaceful, relaxing and quiet. I would highly reccommend it.

My daughter and I stayed at the Oval Door for a Long weekend, we were there for the 2011 Marathon. Nicole and Melissa were very accomodating to our needs. The breakfasts were superb. The rooms outstanding. They accomodated our bike rentals, gave us suggestions for dinner, and even provided a high carb breakfast the day of the marathon without us even asking. We will stay here again if we are in the area. A beautiful house. Nice touches with the cookies and the wine/soda.

Thank you for some great food and extremely comfortable accommodations. You helped make our trip to Eugene even more special.

I think this is my 5th or 6th stay in about 8 years. Oval Door has always been a lovely place to stay and eat. The staff members are wonderfully accomodating and always makes me feel comfortable and relaxed after a long day of work. I can't imagine ever staying anyplace else in Eugene.
5 on April 28, 2011
We were very pleased with our stay at the Oval Door. Gracious is the word that comes to mind. The breakfasts were fantastic, the room very comfortable, the sheets were soft, neighborhood quiet.
5 on April 04, 2011
Our stay at the Oval Door was excellent. The personal touches were fantastic - coffee delivered to our room in the morning, and a choice of entrees for breakfast. Also, the bed was extremely comfortable - moreso than my bed at home!
4.4 on March 18, 2011
I would absolutely stay here again. However, I'm a decaf coffee drinker and picky about the quality. My only complaint is the decaf was not up to par. Truly, every else was wonderful.

We recently stayed at the Oval Door and loved it! It is charming and kept up-to-date, but still feels like a comfy old home. The Innkeepers pay attention to every detail and even accommodated my husband's "gluten free" needs. The room was beyond lovely, with a huge soaking tub, large bed, TV, and coffee or tea in the room. We had a glass of wine in the library in the afternoon (no charge), and enjoyed sitting by the fire and relaxing. The food was imaginative and sumptuous. I want all the recipes - which I found on their website! We found that when we needed something, it was there for the asking. If we wanted to be left alone, no one bothered us. We had such a warm and amazing experience that we can't wait to go back! We are going to plan a vacation around the Oval Door.

Very disappointing this time. I am a repeat customer.. more than a half dozen stays. Unfortunately this time the service was very poor. I felt like an intruder in the home when greeted by the B&B owner. In fact, I thought I had been met by a new employee and did not realize that she was the owner until I called after the visit to express my concerns. Next day the breakfast was not edible. What should have been the highlight as it had been in the past, I had a spinach/egg dish that had an undercooked egg that simply I could not eat. When I called later, the response I got from the partner about my visit was equally unsatisfactory. I had apparently come at a time that was hard on the other partner and she hoped I would try them again. No offer to make it up to me. No offer to figure out a way to make this visit more palatable. Needless to say, I won't be back. Sorry for this comment this time. However, a B&B is all about the service and the breakfast. This time, Oval Door far under-served this guest.
4.2 on March 07, 2011
This is a wonderful B&B in Eugene Oregon. It is within walking distance of downtown and the Saturday Market. The price is very reasonable considering the amazing breakfast. The also have a refrigerator full of drinks for their guest and home made cookies which was a welcome treat after running around U of Oregon all day with our daughter. Nicole and Melissa are lovely woman very willing to help you with ideas of outings in the Eugene area.

Fairly centrally located and in a town that is easy to navigate, this was a great alternative to local downscale motels. Personable, great food and quiet.

We had a wonderful time at the Oval Door the atmosphere was warm and inviting. the rooms were large and nicely decorated. the beds were very comfortable. the food was the real treat. the breakfast was an adventure every day.

Welcoming Innkeepers and home environment. It was a lovely 5 day stay in lovely surroundings, nice guests and delicious breakfasts. Coffee, Tea and Drinks were always available. We took advantage of the warm fire in the fireplace while visiting with our family and playing games in the library. Our bedrooms were very comfortable and quiet. We highly recommend the Oval Door and hope to return again. Sally Valle - Houston, Tx.

I knew the neighborhood because I grew up 6 blocks away. I live in San Francisco now. It was nice to have a place to come 'home' to after spending the day with family (my Mothers 75th birthday party). Slept extremely well in their Morning Glory room. Enjoyed 2 sumptuous breakfasts prepared by Nicole and Melissa.
5 on December 17, 2010
I was in Eugene for business that required that I stay for an entire week. I loved being at the Oval Door - it felt like home. Christmas decorations were going up and everything was perfect. The owners and staff are extremely welcoming and great cooks. Highly recommend this for a relaxing stay in Eugene.
5 on December 13, 2010
The best night's sleep on the road I've ever had! Peaceful & rejuvenating atmosphere; impeccable service. We were made to feel at home immediately, from the in-room coffee service to the fresh baked treats in the cookie jar, this place is fantastic! Can't wait to come back.

Very comfortable, but lighting a bit poor if you like to read. Recommendation for dinner was perfect for our needs.

Nicole made an effort to meet all of her guests and we enjoyed an early evening glass of wine in the living room.
4.6 on October 14, 2010
Very comfortable with great innkeepers. Outstanding breakfasts. Beds and linens were first class. Very nice to have wine and cookies available in the evening. Common areas including living room and library/den were a great place to meet and talk with friends from the area. Internet access including the use of the house computer was very appreciated.

A fantastic B&B which felt like home. The library is a great place to cosy up on the window seat with a good book and glass of wine. Or relax in the sitting room. A full list of restaurants in the area (with menus) is available but don't eat too much - the breakfasts are great! I would definitely return.
5 on August 18, 2010
We have stayed at the Oval Door on four separate occasions while visiting our daughter in Eugene. All of our stays have been from 4 to 6 days. We have recently booked our fifth stay for two days in December. Melissa and Nicole are wonderful innkeepers. Their breakfasts are always delicious and they are considerate of the needs of their guests. The rooms are extremely clean and feel like home!
4.6 on August 18, 2010
I have stayed at Melissa & Nicole's B&B numerous times, and will ALWAYS stay there when in Eugene. They are the super at providing 'just what you need', and are also a very business friendly for us business travelers... wi-fi, a computer & printer we can use, and just a great place to get away from it after work. I stay at a lot of B&B's, and this is one of my top 3!
5 on August 26, 2009
Spent 6 nights at the Oval Door and had the most wonderful experience! Charming home, wonderful hosts, spectacular breakfasts, immaculate rooms, with not a detail overlooked. So many little "extras" that made me feel pampered....I highly recommend staying here when in Eugene.
5 on July 21, 2009
We had a wonderful stay here. The room(size and bed) were so comfortable. The breakfast was the best (necterine and blueberry granola baked). The staff and Nicole were so pleasant to talk with. We had conversation with many of the other guest. It is fun learning about other people and how they live.
5 on May 11, 2009
I've staying at B&B's, and this is one I will definitely return to. It was priced right, offered privacy, good location, and a wrap-around porch (my favorite!).

The Oval Door is nestled in a residential neighborhood within walking distance of d/t Eugene. Excellent , warm, friendly atmosphere. Large rooms, skilled help. the best for your money.

What a lovely B&B. Surrounding tree and inviting breakfast was wonderful.

I have returned to the Oval Door several times, and my wife loves it, too! I am usually here on business, and they fit that need very well. Free hi-speed internet, and computer and printer should I need it, GREAT coffee brought right too your room, and a very nice breakfast. They even had some nice complimentary wine in the evening!!!
4.6 on December 06, 2007
We were in Eugene last August. We stayed here for 4 days and enjoyed the experience greatly. The room was excellent, the food was beyond excellent as was the coffee and hospitality. We hope to return again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Oval Door. The rooms are beautifully appointed but not fussy. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were friendly but lowkey. The b and b is located in a nice quiet neighborhood. I felt very relaxed at the Oval Door and would definitely stay there again.
