Short version: Look no further for a room in Eugene...book here! Delicious breakfast, great space, and the most gracious hosts. Longer version: I loved the bed & breakfast! The new owners, Nate and Brian, have done a wonderful job keeping the wonder and charm while modernizing the place a bit. I stayed in the English Daisy, and it was perfect!...

We have stayed here several times over the years. A few months ago, a couple of guys bought the place, and to our way of thinking made it better. Why better? Well, to start, they got rid of a lot of the cute clutter. More room to move around now. A cleaner look. And my wife and I really liked...

We had a great stay in Eugene at the Oval Door. Brian and Nate were great hosts, knowledgeable, good tips for dining at the the Vintage and the breakfasts and extra goodies very nicely presented. Having a bag of laundry done and beautifully folded was very welcome. We would recommend this charming place with a lovely comfortable bed.

My boyfriend and I arrived here completely haggard after a multi-day trip across the country. After making sense of all the one-ways in Eugene for the first time, we arrived at this delightful b&b nestled in the neighborhoods right outside of downtown. I remember the carpet in the front room was very cushy, and though I know there were multiple...

Thank you for the thorough and thoughtful review! We truly appreciate it! We're so glad to hear you guys had a good time and enjoyed your stay. As a side note: We do have plans to update the furniture once the busy season is over and move the feel of the place into more of a modern lodge. Hope to...

Kudos to Nate and Brian who made our stay very enjoyable and put on a great breakfast of baked spiced oranges, bread infused with tea (who would've thought?) and eggs benny. They just took over the inn a few weeks ago but I foresee a bright business future for them. They just need the step up their game a touch...

Thanks so much for the kudos and the review in general! We appreciate the kind words! We hope to see you on another trip! As for the coffee, just a note that we partner with a local Eugene-based roaster, which typically gets fantastic reviews. We'll certainly keep a pulse on the feedback on it, though. As coffee lovers ourselves, we...

My husband and I stayed at the Oval Door for 3 nights for our son's University of Oregon graduation weekend, and Nate and Brian were excellent hosts. They honestly thought of everything we could possibly want or need. We stayed in the Bamboo suite on the top floor, and found both the bedroom and bath to be immaculately clean, inviting,...

Our week at the Oval Door coincided with renovations, the long-term owners Melissa and Nicole moving out, and the new owners Brian and Nate taking over, so it was not exactly 'business as usual' - more on that later. The B&B is in a three storey house, and all the public and private rooms are spacious and very comfortable; it...

Thanks so much for the review and for your confidence in us! We appreciate both very much. And thanks again for your patience with the siding construction and management transition. Hopefully we'll get the opportunity to host you guys without construction in the background! You both were a delight, and we look forward to crossing paths again. Cheers!

Had another terrific stay at the Oval Door while visiting Eugene OR. As always, owners Nicole and Melissa were wonderful hosts. Breakfasts were delicious as were the chocolate chip oatmeal cookies in the afternoon. New ownership is planned as Nicole and Melissa are moving on after 18 years. New owners have large shoes to fill. Hope it stays fabulous. Thanks...
