General description

  • Main home
Comfortable and spacious modern home on 5 acres in the country. Located in the foothills of the Cascade mountains 30 miles southeast of Eugene, OR. Quiet and private park like setting along a river. Close to Willamette National Forest and beautiful hiking, biking, and other places to explore. Country living at it's best! 30 minute commute to groceries/shopping/town. Satellite internet- a tad slow, but it works for Netflix, email and internet. No cable or satellite TV reception. Great nearby neighbors for support, if needed. A very beautiful and peaceful setting in the lush forests of western Oregon. Keep in mind that this is a temperate rain forest with daytime winter temperatures likely in the 30s-40sF and often cloudy and rainy.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 dogs
  • Fish
Our two dogs are a 7 yr Kelpie (very serious, attentive and loves affection) and 5 yr old Border Collie (funny, goofy & gets very excited at cars and things with wheels). They are nice to be around with plenty of personality. They are pretty easy going, but being high energy breeds, they like to get at least one good long walk in a day. We have great places to walk from home. We also have two fresh water fish tanks. We also have some house plants that need watering. All pretty easy to deal with, but needs a certain level of attention to detail.
House is pretty low maintenance with all modern conveniences (internet can be a tad slow), but it is a ways out in the country in a somewhat remote environment close to the Willamette National Forest. (We are 8 miles from the nearest stop sign! )
House sitter would have to be comfortable being 30 miles away from the nearest grocery stores and such. This does not require a lot of work to house sit, but requires the right person to be very comfortable in a rural setting away from most people and towns. Very good neighbors nearby for support, if needed.

Quiet country living in a spacious and comfortable home. 30+ minute commute to stores. It is a beautiful natural setting along a river, with paths through the forest and many nearby places to walk, hike & bike. Ideal for someone that loves solitude, quiet, the outdoors and does not need to regularly be in town, around a lot of people or with super fast internet. It's a peaceful and beautiful forest retreat with a couple fun and affectionate dogs.

  • Art and music
We have a piano, guitars, ukulele, 500+ CDs (mostly rock, but lots of Jazz, blues, and other stuff), some books. A great place to relax, read, go for walks, cook (we have a great kitchen with lots of gadgets and space) write, work on crafts. We don't eat meat, so would request that if a house sitter is cooking meat, they do it on the outside grill. Covered deck.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Mountain
  • Countryside
  • Forest
Eugene is a quaint University town to visit with great food, beer, wine, coffee, parks and other attractions. Most people love western Oregon for it's diversity of natural beauty. We are about 2 1/2 hours to the ocean. 2 1/2 hours to Portland and Columbia River Gorge Area, 1 hour to the Cascade mountains, 1 1/2 hours to high desert in central Oregon.
