My mom and I were pleased to find a room with two twin beds. The beds were firm and comfortable. Our room was well equipped, especially enjoyed the free wifi, drinks and our own private bathroom. Breakfast was fantastic. We both really enjoyed our stay. Thanks

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.

Great Location

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.

A wonderful stay

Loved this b&b. No negatives at all, very clean, quiet and the best breakfast ever. Loved our stay in the "bamboo" room, with a king bed and huge bathroom. Great location, within walking distance of Eugene sites, attractions and restaurants. Highly recommend.

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.
