General description

  • Main home
Quiet 5 acre horse property only 7 miles from Springfield, Oregon (near Eugene). Close to the McKenzie River. Large, comfortable home with two available bedrooms, hi-speed internet, central heat/AC. Two well-mannered horses and one very friendly dog.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A dog
  • 2 horses
We have two horses that need to be turned out to pasture in the morning and returned to the barn in the evening. Daily stall cleaning and feeding. Our horses are easy to handle but previous horse experience is required. One medium size dog that lives in the house and needs to be fed twice daily. We have a large kennel yard that she can spend part of the day in, but if the weather is cold she prefers to be inside most of the time. She loves to play and cuddle, and she can be left alone in the house for up to 8 hours without worry.

The home is 11 miles (about 20 minutes) from Eugene/Springfield's largest hospital. It is 22 miles (30 minutes) from Eugene Airport (EUG). The nearest full-size grocery store is 8 miles, and there is a smaller market and a bar/restaurant 3 miles away in Walterville.
