It’s easy to see why Eugene is lovingly called the Emerald City. Nestled at the southern end of the Willamette Valley, this city of more than 160,000 residents shines with its lively arts scene and stunning greenery. Aside from an abundance of museums and cultural events, the city is also known for being a center for outdoor recreation. As a bustling college town, Eugene is home to the University of Oregon along with many other institutions of higher learning. It is also where Nike had its humble beginnings before becoming a household name in sporting apparel.
With “Track Town USA” as one of its monikers, Eugene held its place as the track and field capital of the world for nearly 40 years. In 2021, the city will be hosting the 18th Track and Field World Championships. Whether you’re visiting Eugene as a sports fan, art enthusiast or a simple sanctuary-seeker, there are a lot of places to stay in that truly evoke the city’s vibrant spirit.
With high ceilings, large windows and a stone fireplace, this dog-friendly luxury home is truly a haven in the woods. This four-bedroom house has a large hot tub, gourmet kitchen, and walk-in closet that can make anyone feel like a celebrity. There is also fitness equipment available if you want to burn some carbs. If you feel like having a movie marathon, there’s a movie theater downstairs.
The Saturday Market, where crafts and local produce is sold, opens nearby. There’s also the University of Oregon nearby, perfect for a nice afternoon stroll.
Luxurious home with lots of entertainment & more - dogs okay!

Although this dog-friendly property is a few miles from downtown, it is located near a hiking trail should you wish to go rugged and traverse the natural environment.
