Lovely en suite room in organic B&B. USA-made products & locally-made furniture. High-end queen mattress, made in Oregon from natural latex with organic pillowtop. Heated cork flooring, tiled 2-person shower and private patio framed by fruit trees.
Velo provides a unique experience for guests by combining the hospitality of a bed and breakfast with privacy more akin to a hotel.
Both of the Velo guest rooms have spacious and modern bathrooms, and all guest spaces are separate from the hosts' living areas.
Velo features gourmet vegetarian/vegan breakfasts served by the founder and former owner of Eugene's popular Morning Glory Cafe. Breakfasts are always organic, and we offer gluten-free items for those with gluten sensitivities.
Fresh-made organic sweets are set out each evening for all to enjoy. We are always happy to cater to your dietary needs or preferences; just let us know in advance of your stay.
Limited wi-fi is available in both guest rooms, and an environmentally-friendly passive cooling system means its comfortably cool in the warmer months. Heated cork floors are delightfully warm in the cooler months.
This listing is for our Tandem room, which features a very large tiled two-person shower with tandem shower heads and a private patio with 2 chaise lounge and a cafe table.
Bath amenities include locally-made and cruelty-free/vegan bath products such as Pacifica, Sappo Hill and Sacred Earth Botanicals.
The room also features a "sleep sound" machine with soothing ocean, babbling brook, wind, rain and cricket settings.
Velo is a LGBT-friendly accommodation.
Guests staying at Velo enjoy a separate guest entrance and a guest-only living/dining room area with patio. Friends or family renting both rooms enjoy the luxury of having the whole bed and breakfast to themselves!
Interaction with guests
Your hosts live next door to the bed and breakfast and are available most times for questions and assistance. Guests should expect to see their hosts from time to time in the guest common area working to provide the cleanest possible accommodations and the best possible service. We are always happy to help with dining, recreational and sightseeing recommendations, but our default hosting style is to give our guests as much privacy as possible.
Other things to note
Velo sits on over 5 acres of sloped forestland, and features short trails throughout the property for onsite birding, hiking or running.
A friendly cow, a couple of chickens and a duck, a couple of cats a guinea pig and a small dog reside on the premises. However, B&B indoor guest areas are always 100% pet-free.
This is one of two beautiful rooms on the premises; please see "Green Accommodations at Velo B and B" for our other available room.

Velo Bed and Breakfast Policies:
There is a refrigerator for guests to use, however, we are a vegetarian establishment and as such ask guests to bring only vegetarian food inside the premises.
Velo is a shoe-free space in an effort to keep the premises as clean as possible for guests at all times. The cork floor is very comfortable for bare feet, however some may prefer to bring their own slippers.
No burning of any kind for any reason is allowed inside the premises. Velo provides many LED flameless candles for guests' use in their room.
While the B and B is segregated from the main part of the house, guests should expect to see their hosts from time to time in the guest common area working to provide the cleanest possible accommodations and the best possible service.
Verizon is currently the only provider in this area for high-speed internet service, which means we have limited data access, just as one would have for a smartphone, for example.
Each room is allotted access to 250 mbs of data per day, plenty for guests to check email and surf the web. However, streaming of video or audio (ie hulu, youtube, Pandora, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), etc) will likely exceed this allotment. Once guests have exceeded their allotment, our system will terminate internet access to that room and will not reactivate it until next day’s check-in time. Guests may want to suspend their devices’ automatic download settings during their stay so as not to inadvertently use up their data allotment.
For entertainment, guests are welcome to watch movies from our dvd collection, and for those who do not have laptops with them, we have dvd players available for guests’ use as well. Just ask!
Well-behaved children ages 10 and over are welcome!
Guests may not sleep overnight on the guest common room couch.
