About the property

Private Sunny Room Close To Everything

You'll feel right at home in this spacious and light corner room in our simple yet elegant home. (The rental is NOT for the entire home. Your host lives in the home and will be present).

There is a private full bath, kitchen, patio & gardens. This is one of the best neighborhoods in Eugene with close access to just about everything.

This warm, east-facing corner room has hardwood floors with a simple and fresh look. My guests often tell me that this one of the most comfortable beds and that they slept quite well. There is a desk and chair, bed with a nightstand and lamp on either side of the bed and a sitting chair.

There is closet space and a built-in dresser if needed.

The house is simple yet elegant, clean and comfortable. The patio and organic gardens are quite pleasant to sit in and read or enjoy a glass of wine and nibble on cheese.

I will provide organic coffee.

Guest Access

WiFi, kitchen, full bath (world's smallest full bath:), living room, patio and gardens, washer and dryer.

Other Things to Note

Because I work from home I have to keep my home clean and tidy. When I am with clients (either by phone or in person) I am unable to be available to my guests until the top of the hour--Tuesday -Thursday. Once in a while clients that I see face to face may need to use the guest bathroom.

About Lisa Anderson

Two of my big loves in life are being in nature and dancing. Rivers, creeks, lakes, the ocean. Hiking, biking, strolling, snow shoeing. Camping. As to dancing, my current obsession is West Coast Swing after a few years of being a ballroom dance devotee.

I also love my home. I moved into this one in June 2013 and have been making it the simple yet elegant home it was meant to be.

Then there is the dog. Lucy I adopted a few years ago. She is a small red and white Border Collie or something like that. She loves people and is quite wary of other dogs (so NO PETS, please).

Deep conversation, creativity, spirituality, gardening, good belly laughs all feed me immensely.

I love my work as a career and life coach. I have been doing this business since 2004. It is such a rewarding way to be of service: helping others know and express their true calling and create what they want in their lives both personally and professionally.

I have lived in Colombia, South America--at the height of the Civil War--and taught English there for the British Council. I've done home stays with several families in Guatemala as part of a language immersion school. This was my mid-life crisis reinvention time.

When I travel I prefer to stay with people I know. I get to experience the culture first hand, not as a tourist. I hope that I may help you enjoy your stay in Eugene more deeply.

Lisa Anderson purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa Anderson chose Eugene

I have been in Eugene for since 1977. I lived in a sweet little bungalow home that I transformed over the course of 20 years. But it was starting to feel cramped. So I started looking. And looking. And looking. I just wasn't finding anything out there. I was on all the sites multiples times a day. Then I saw something on Zillow in a category called 'Make Me Move' with one very dark photo of the kitchen. I drove by and liked what I saw and contacted the owner. And contacted. And contacted. He finally got back to me and it was definitely love at first site. The place was a bit of pig sty when I first saw it but I could see all the potential here. So like Michelangelo I have been sculpting and just removing what doesn't belong here to let let what does shine through.

What makes this house unique

If you don't need an entire house nor want the impersonal nature of a hotel and are way past staying at youth hostels this is the place to be. Staying with locals is one of the best to get to know a place.

My favorite feature when I first saw this house was the hallway. Yup, the hallway. It wraps around the covered patio with huge windows pulling you outside. I also loved that this wasn't a box shaped house. There are a few angles that are just enough off 90 degrees to catch your attention.

Beautiful room with a kind and friendly host!

  • 5 of 5

First off... this home is in a beautiful neighborhood away from downtown Eugene. There is shopping and some eateries not too far away. I enjoyed a secluded run one morning through the quiet streets. The room itself is large, nicely decorated and clean, with a very comfortable bed. There is a large corner window with a nice view of the street... loved the blinds that open from both directions - nice touch! The available bathroom is through a hallway and kitchen nook area and is very small as the specs indicate. It is so small that a over average sized person may not be comfortable, but it was just fine for me. Lisa welcomed me like a family member and we had some nice chats during my stay. She was very accommodating and checked in (but not excessively) to make sure I had what I needed. She made her kitchen available and provided good, made-to-order coffee each morning. If I was coming back to Eugene on my own, I will definitely stay with Lisa again.

Owner's Response: Thank you. You were an awesome guest and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the bathroom IS small: 36 square feet. :D A large person would feel cramped. I haven't had any complaints from anyone. It is clean and newly remodeled.

Better than I expected, having never done the room thing before.

  • 5 of 5

The house was located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood within walking distance of a Safeway and some restaurants. The room was quite spacious and the host very generous in sharing all the comforts of her home. I was surprised to feel so "at home" in a stranger's house.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's home is a great place to stay while visiting Eugene. It's in a beautiful quiet area but really close to all the places that we needed to go.

We were only there for 2 nights and had no need to interact much with Lisa but she was very accommodating of our requests and we greatly appreciated that.

Lisa's dog Lucy is quite loveable and well behaved.

Small bathroom is correct but no negative factor.

  • 4 of 5

You are staying in someone's spare bedroom, just so you realize that fact. It may not be everyone's style. But, the news is all good. It is a lovely room in a lovely home in a lovely (and convenient) neighborhood. Lisa is a gracious, kind and helpful owner, very quiet and unobtrusive. There is a "man's best friend" who is friendly and well-mannered. We spent two very comfortable and relaxing nights while exploring Eugene. Lisa was willing to communicate as much or as little as we requested. Unfortunately she has no control over the weather which visitors will quickly realize can be RAINY. The rain may keep us from returning to Eugene, but if the opportunity should present itself, we would not hesitate to stay in the Sunrise Room.

Owner's Response: It was great to host you here. Funny--I don't even remember that it rained when you were here. I guess I've grown accustomed to it. Summers are absolutely glorious in Eugene and almost always bone dry. Do come again.
