We hope that you will feel welcome in this comfortably furnished, 3 bedroom/1 bath home, conveniently perched in a quiet residential neighborhood, 2 miles from the University of Oregon, historic Hayward Field and the Music School's Beal Hall. Restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, bakeries, markets, running trails & paved bike paths are all nearby. The house itself includes a well equipped, modestly stocked, kitchen as well as 2 queen beds and 1 full-sized futon in 3 separate bedrooms.
We only discovered, after we had bought the home, that it had been, at one point, a Zen retreat. The translucent covered entry that still exists from that time was designed as a calm place in which to pause while one took off ones shoes, before entering the quiet, meditative space inside. You can still feel that sense of peacefulness in the home today. It is a warm, calm, friendly space.
Guests have access to the whole house. We do not live there, but live nearby, in the country outside of town. We bought the house the day it came on the market and our intent is to live there, eventually, when we do decide to move back into town. Please treat it with respect.
A covered deck on the back side of the house just outside the dining area, looks west over our gently sloping yard and, in warm weather, offers a quiet space to sit and enjoy the westerly views beyond.
There is parking for one car in the driveway and additional street parking has never been a problem.

We will be available to walk our guests through the home and describe the neighborhood amenities most of the time. Please do call if you have any questions. We are always available by text, email or phone.
Mazzi's Italian Restaurant is roughly 4 blocks downhill, on east Amazon. The owner's son, also named Mazzi, has opened a bakery and espresso bar, the Hideaway Bakery, in back. On warm summer evenings an outdoor Pizza Night (last year it was every Tuesday. Check with Mazzi.) is wildly popular. Get there early!
We have left a sheet of neighboring shops, restaurants and grocery stores on the kitchen counter for your convenience.
Please respect the neighbors by not being noisy after 9 p.m. Please do not smoke any substance inside the house or garage.
No pets, please.
