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.

Great Stay

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!

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!

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 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!
