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!

My husband and I stayed at the Oval Door for the first night of our honeymoon 13 years ago, and just stayed again last night to celebrate our anniversary. It also happened to be the first weekend that Nate and Brian, the new owners, were at the helm, and we had a lovely visit. When we arrived, Nate met us...

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...

Beautiful B&B! The lady who runs it is very sweet and does a great job! Within walking distance of lots of food and shops! Breakfast was delicious! She had a menu to choose what meal you would like! Enjoyed the library they had too!

We have been staying here while attending the UW - Oregon football game. For the longest time we bounced around at a number of locations. We discovered the Oval Door some 10+ years ago and LOVE it, returning on game day. The Inn keepers are the best and work to ensure that you have an enjoyable time. The breakfast IS...

Beautiful old house, great service, and close to downtown, what more could you want? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a beautiful room with a comfortable king size bed on the top floor of the inn. We will definitely be back.
