It is with great pleasure that I write this review for my stay at McKenzie Orchards Bed and Breakfast. The MO BandB was the perfect location and venue for a very peaceful celebration of my birthday. The accommodations were exceptional. Our room was big enough for 3 adults and I particularly appreciated the fact that there were no tv's in the rooms. The dining and living rooms (which were always open and available to us) overlooked a very large open area with the beautiful McKenzie River running right at the edge of the property. The proprietors were most gracious and provided a unique atmosphere for this special celebration. We were invited into a very professionally designed and equipped kitchen to watch them prepare our dinner. Both Karen and Tom are gourmet cooks who were eager to share their excitement for preparing and cooking our extraordinary dinner, which was delicious and prepared to perfection. My sister ordered a special cake for the occasion which was created by Karen's sister, Orah, a fabulous baker. Absolutely delicious and it received rave reviews by all. The next morning breakfast was served with homemade scones, raspberries, whipped cream, lots of fresh fruit, eggs (to order), meat if desired, homemade multigrain bread and raspberry jam. Tom and Karen made our stay at McKenzie Oaks relaxing and peaceful. They are wonderful folks... kind and generous.The goodness of the proprietors, the incredible meals, and the peaceful setting made for a wonderful experience.

My husband and I stayed two nights and this is a hidden gem in the country. Quiet, close to the river and very relaxing. Tom and Karen are great cooks and hosts. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom is large and the double head shower was a added bonus. We definitely will return.

My husband and I stayed at the McKenzie Orchards Bed and Breakfast for two nights, along with my 2 siblings and their spouses, for my nephew's wedding in late June. My husband found it online and we couldn't have been happier!! We stayed in the Paradise Room and it was a huge room (about 650 square feet) and clean as could be! The bed was comfy and the bedding and towels were luxurious. We enjoyed the TV room downstairs after the wedding to just hang out and enjoy our time together. Tom is a great cook and is extremely personable, as is Karen his wife. They compliment each other and take great pride in their Bed and Breakfast. If you are looking for a place to stay in this area, this is the place for you!! You will not regret your choice of accommodations. We will certainly stay here again, when we are back in the Eugene/Springfield area. Thank you Tom and Karen for a wonderful visit!! The Brady's, Wards and Yassemedis'

The hosts were very welcoming. We learned a lot about bees and building your dreams!

We spent one night at the McKenzie Orchards Bed and Breakfast as part of a several-days-long trip from California to Washington. It was, by far, our favorite stop (before reaching our other favorite B&B, the Green Cat in Poulsbo, WA)...if only ALL B&Bs could be like this! The attention to detail, cleanliness, and quality of every aspect of this operation is top notch. Tim & Karen Anderson

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
