We are looking for plans in 2020. August 2021, we are the host of the World Track & Field Championships (first ever in the US), if you're planning to attend, we'd like to consider a trade with you.

West coast US, Oregon wine country near ocean, come stay during August 2021 World Track & Field Championships at Univ of Oregon!

Our 3,500 square foot home sits on 5 wooded acres, but only 23 minute drive to downtown Eugene and the University of Oregon. Eugene is "Track Town USA", where the USA Olympic Trials are often held. We are a 3 minute drive to Fern Ridge Lake with parks, swimming, picnic areas, kayak/canoe rentals, paddle-boarding and fishing. We are located in the heart of wine country, the Willamette Valley being one of the premier wine-making regions in the world for Pinot Gris and Pinor Noir, with over 25+ beautiful wineries nearby, our favorite is about 10 minutes away. Oregon is also very big for beer craft/micro brewing, with several pubs and tasting rooms in our area. Our home is approx. 45 minute drive to ocean beaches, near several rivers and lakes, and about an hour to the local snow ski resort in the winter months. We are less than 2 hours to Portland, and a few hours to Crater Lake National Park (7th deepest lake in the world), both which can be done as a day trip. There are also several golf courses nearby. Eugene has some wonderful restaurants and boutiques and an active nightlife. Saturdays downtown there is the Eugene Saturday Market with crafts, food and music. During July, the neighboring town of Elmira hosts the Oregon Country Fair, a festival that is known throughout the US. If you have young children, we have a pack and play crib, high chair, and car seat. The Eugene airport is only 11 miles from our home.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: EUG Eugene Mahlon Sweet Field - 11.2

We live in the small town of Elmira, which is a suburb of Eugene. We love being just outside of town to have privacy and quiet in nature, yet takes 20 minutes to get to the main city (Eugene) each day, with a beautiful drive past the lake. Behind our property, there is a 100 acre common area with hiking trails that we are a part of, so you can come hike in your own private woods, on groomed, marked trails. There is also a neighborhood farm down the street that sells fresh produce. The small town of Veneta is 10 minute's drive, where there is a grocery store, restaurants, gas, etc. so although you are "country", all the conveniences are very nearby.
