Large master bedroom with attached private bathroom in shared home located in quiet rural neighborhood less than 5 miles from downtown Corvallis. Easy access to multiple trail heads for your biking, running, and walking enjoyment. A well-appointed kitchen, and multiple charcoal grills make our home the perfect spot to relax in the country. Large backyard is great for yard games and our forested property with a creek is fun for kids to explore with lots of wildlife viewing opportunities.

The space

As this is our home that we are opening up for travelers wishing to visit Corvallis, all the comforts of a primary residence are waiting for you here! Charcoal for the grills, cooking/baking essentials, spices, etc, as well as yard games, including cornhole/bags, and lots of board games. The walk-out basement (includes entertainment den and wet bar) stays wonderfully cool in the heat of the summer and toasty with a wood burning stove in the fall and winter. You'll also have access to HBO Now and Netflix.

For the birders, our feeders are located outside the kitchen window where you can enjoy our frequent visitors including black-capped and chestnut-backed chickadees, red-breasted nuthatch, song sparrows, dark-eyed juncos, black-headed grosbeaks, Steller's jays, hummingbirds, and occasionally band-tailed pigeons.

Our home is located within walking distance to Bald Hill Natural Area and a short drive (or run/bike/walk if you don't mind some black top) to miles of single track trails.

Guest access

You'll have access to the common areas of a 4 bedroom 3 full bath home, with your own private bedroom and full bath.

Interaction with guests

We live in the home with several graduate students and our dog, so will be available at all times.

Other things to note

There is a dog in the house and he believes that any visitors have come specifically to meet him, so if you don't like dogs, this might not be for you.

Peter is a great host! Although in this case, we didn't get to meet in person, he was very proactive in sharing updates on the situation regarding the total solar eclipse, shared advice, and gave tips on local dining and activities. Check-in was seamless. The house is a clean, spacious retreat on a large lot in a private, wooded neighborhood. It is a short drive to Corvallis, a fun, bustling college town. Everything was at least exactly as expected, and more!
