Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Eugene

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

This is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath farmhouse that is located on a 30 acre certified organic farm within the Eugene city boundaries. The farm has over 2,000 feet of frontage on the Willamette River.

The farmhouse has been redone but still has the original wooden floors, an insert fireplace and it is on its own 2 acre lot. Note, it is a home from the 50's and is nice and spacious but is not a deluxe luxury accommodation. There's no DVD player, big screen TV etc.... but there is a beautiful, quiet setting for you to enjoy (and fast wifi).

Each room is decorated with furniture and items from the owner's years of living overseas.

Guests are free to walk to the river (about a 5 minute walk), see the horse stables, visit the organic farm (or even pitch in and help if they desire!)

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Property Manager/Owner

I am a "semi retired" educator who has had the great experience of living and working overseas for the 16 years. I ran the farm from afar and came and worked all summer each year to try and keep things up (it didn't work very well :>).

Now, I am home and loving being able to work the land and live on this beautiful piece of property year round.

I live on the property further back.. My son and my mother, who's 87 years young work here most days and we have Wwoofers (from the World Wide Organization of Organic Farms) who live here for various lengths of time to learn farming.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Willamette Valley Oregon

It's unique. It is a working certified organic farm and it has beautiful river frontage. I have also decorated the house with items that I obtained while living abroad. (Please note that it's about a 5 minute walk to the river's edge from the house).

Guests can observe a real working farm and buy fresh, organic produce right from the farm!

What makes this farmhouse unique

A person can bike from here easily and/or hike the property or the old boat landing at the end of the road. It's a unique opportunity to visit a farm and see all of the animals and crops.

Quiet with easy access to all areas of Eugene and Springfield

House is roomy with plenty of counter space in the kitchen area. It is in a nice location to explore the areas between Eugene and Corvallis.

I enjoyed my stay at the Creative Farmhouse. Nice and peaceful riverside. Stargazing in the night. Each room had full of interesting stuff from overseas. Don't forget to try their fresh and tasty organic products. Definitely to stay again.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

The Creative Farmhouse was WONDERFUL!

What a beautiful farm, and such a charming old house. Shaundele was fantastic. We asked for cream for our coffee after getting in late the night before, and she couldn't have been kinder or more accommodating.

The property is AMAZING, and the best part is that if you are interested and want to know more and interact and learn, you can, but if not, and you want to stay to yourselves, that's just fine, too!

My favorite surprise was the rope tree swing by the house, where I could watch the horses and enjoy overhearing the happy conversation of our friends and family from the front porch, looking up into the branches of an in incredible tree like we just don't have at our home in the Ozarks.

The beds are comfy, the towels are plush, the water is HOT, and the artifacts from around the world are fascinating.

This place is not stuffy! Our friends from Eugene loved visiting us here and walking to the river and mysterious "pashmina's tent" on the property.

We'd stay here again in a heartbeat next time we're in Eugene.

Peaceful house in the countryside

  • 4 of 5

The house is set in a beautiful area and was very close to the Oregon Horse Center. We were in town for a horse show, so it was nice to be able to find something so close. We enjoyed looking at the collection of furniture and books from around the world. We were able to bring our two dogs with us, and they enjoyed exploring the enclosed side yard. Shaundele was very easy to work with when our trip plans changed.

Beautiful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent the whole week in that house during our summer vacation. We had lots of quite and peaceful moments in that house and around on the property. The house is located on the quite street with the view on the nearby hazelnut farm. From day 1 Shaundele and all of her family and friends made us feel welcome. Kids were patting dogs, cats, horses, were feeding chickens and swinging on the long swing located next to the house. We were swimming in nearby Eugene's pools, buying local food from the market and bread from the local bakeries, were picking blueberries from the nearby farm (got there by walking from the house) and had lots and lots of blackberries. We also were singing songs near the fire at the evening along with Shaundele's friends and volunteers. We had so many wonderful moments so it was hard to say good bye. We will definitely come back. Thank you, Shaundele, for sharing that all with us!

Sweet farmhouse, quiet neighborhood, very nice owner.

  • 3 of 5

We would most definitely return to this very nice place. It's in a great location which has a very lovely country feel-- super quiet -- and yet is quite close to town and highway access...the best of both worlds. The house is equipped with everything you need, a nice kitchen (which we didn't really use because we were visiting family), laundry facilities and wifi. The owner is very nice and easy..and nearby which is helpful. It is a farmhouse and therefore has a farmhouse feel about it...not fancy in other words...but roomy and more than adequate. And you'll find interesting books there and signs of an interesting life spent in exotic places. Our dog loved the grass area outside for frisbee playing..kids would too, I imagine. And being able to walk to the nearby river is another delight worth mentioning. I would have given this experience more stars except for a couple of things that could easily be fixed: the lighting in the house is not great. Very harsh and not condusive to reading. Our bed was comfy but most of the other furniture is not very comfortable and there isn't a good arrangement for visiting with others in the living room. As my husband said, "It's not a living room set up for living." Furniture is relegated to far corners with a big open space in the middle. You could certainly pull in chairs from the dining room but that wouldn't be comfortable either. And..again...the lighting is bad. The shower door is really meant for a bathtub so you have to stoop to get in and out...a real head-banger and not great for a bad back. And we had to rig a way to close the bedroom curtains for privacy as there are no shades and the curtains don't really close. (Not that there are close neighbors, but we aren't fans of undressing in front of big dark windows at night.) Since we were always out with family, none of these things presented a big problem for us but fixing these things would make a huge difference, I think. It's not easy to find dog-friendly places in Eugene and of all the ones we've experienced, this one has been the nicest. As I said, we'd go back and feel at home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We have struggled with what to do regarding the living room furniture. Everything in there is original, handmade pieces from Bangladesh that we brought back with us. In keeping with the theme of the farmhouse, we have not wanted to add other pieces. Most of our guests have enjoyed the different pieces and the fact they are authentic and interesting.I am sure though, that we can come up with a solution to make it more comfortable for our guests!
