About this listing
Cozy up on the comfortable easy chair with a good book from the bookshelves surrounding the Captain's bed or a book from the shelves in the living room. If you have postcards to write or computer work, the bureau desk provides a place to work.
My warm, ranch-style home in West Eugene has two private rooms--this listing has has a single captain's bed (available during summer months only). A second bedroom (a separate listing) has a bunk set that consists of a twin on top, a full bed on the bottom, and a twin trundle bed underneath. There is one shared bathroom in the house which has a tub/shower.
Accommodations are best suited for 1 or 5 guests with the possibility (ask first) of additional guest(s) in the living room which contains a hide-a-bed that will sleep two comfortably.
I share my home with Rascal, a well-behaved Jack Russell Terrier who is curious but quite polite after he meets and greets you. He isn't allowed in the extra rooms. Mango, a cockatiel, occupies space in the laundry room. She loves to whistle and she will mimic your whistles.
The large backyard is shared with Beauty, Elsa, Road Runner, and Goldie, four chickens who provide me with eggs. In addition to the girls, are Ruby, a pet rabbit, and a wild rabbit who enjoys visiting every day who has been named Rosie by my grandchildren.
As my guests, you have access to most all of the rooms in the house. The living and dining rooms serve as a common area for all, with books and games, as well as a TV with a DVD and vintage VHS library. You are welcome to share this space with me watching TV, listening to music, reading, or conversing if you'd like.
The covered patio and yard are available to you. Enjoy a barbeque; sitting around a fire telling stories, roasting marshmallows, making S'mores, or sipping a glass of wine; swinging on the rope swing; or playing a game of croquet.
There is high-speed Wi-Fi for your internet needs.
You also have shared access to the well-stocked kitchen to prepare coffee or tea at any time, as well as store food or beverages in my refrigerator. If you wish to cook meals, let me know in advance so I can prepare space for you.
A continental breakfast will be provided each week day morning, with coffee or tea available. On weekends, a full breakfast will be served. Dinners available for an extra charge. For those guests staying 7 or more nights, one dinner will be included. You may join me in preparing the meal.
Interaction with guests
I have hosted many people over the years and have thoroughly enjoy interacting with them through stimulating conversations, shared meals, and food preparation. However, I know privacy is needed and important. I value my privacy, so I am sensitive to that for my guests. While socializing is fun, I will take the lead from you.
Other things to note
During the school year, normal check-in is 5 pm and check in during summer months is 2 pm, but if you need something different, I'll accommodate whenever I can. Check-out on single night stays on weekdays only is 9 AM. Multiple night stays and Saturday and Sundays are 11 AM, but again I'll be flexible when I can.
Let me know what you need when you book. Other amenities? Just ask! Many things are possible. I could even provide you with the use of a picnic basket and blanket.
Come stay with me!
I do not allow smoking or pets.
Quiet time from 10 pm until 8 am.
I appreciate it if:
1) you take your shoes off in my house in rainy weather; I have a place by the front door for your convenience.
2) you would not take food or beverages (except water) in the guest rooms.
3) you would help by cleaning up after yourself.
Cancel up to 24 hours before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
