Come enjoy Eugene, Oregon, an eclectic university town, with a rich cultural scene that includes (when not in the "Time of Covid") the SHEDD institute, HULT Center for The Performing Arts, the historic U of O campus, plus plenty of active outdoor opportunities : hiking,biking, paddling, birding, skiing (nordic and alpine). A sixty mile drive west thru the coast mountain range will being you to the Oregon Coast, with sand dunes, hiking trails, and charming small towns. Or drive seventy miles east, to the pass at the top of the Oregon Cascades, along a lovely mountain highway, plenty of hikng on both E& W side of the Cascades. Some call Eugene "Track Town USA". But for me, it is my home-sweet-home-town, friendly, active, respectful, colorful, inlcusive
My home sits on a quiet street in the middle of the FAN, Friendly Avenue Neighborhood, one of the more established and desirable areas for long term residents and home owners, full of well-cared older homes/gardens with colorful garden alleyways. My home is solid built, 70 years old, with significant recent remodels adding a sophisticated touch, while still cozy. Two small bedrooms, one of which is the main loft bedroom, with double bed. Small guest room with single bed. Private fenced-in back yard. Hammock and lots of summer shade in back yard. My home is three miles from the U of O, one mile from downtown. You can bike, walk, bus. Plenty of on-street parking at my home.
Cats Oscar and Felix are twelve year old siblings, Ziggy is their younger adopted sis. They love to play/sleep together, explore outside, gaze out windows, and enjoy a warm lap. They have their own cat door, for acess to inside/outside. No cat box duties! Cat lovers only please, no smokers. Arrive one day early please, for orientation and hand-off, stay in my guest room, the night before my departure, if you want.
Reference ......I house sat for Cathy 3or4 times and found it to be a wonderful experience (thus repeating the experience again, several times!). Cathy’s 3 cats are very independent, able to go in and out of the house as desired, they are easy to care for. Cathy’s house is clean with all desired amenities and she is easy to work with. Her house is in a great neighborhood with a natural food store within walking distance and bus service nearby. All in all, I would recommend housesitting for Cathy and her cats!! Mary Morin. .
