CopperTree House is located in the beautiful Southeast Hills of the Willamette Valley in Eugene's finest neighborhood on a private cul-de-sac surrounded by Douglas fir trees but just minutes from Hayward Field, Matthew Knight Arena, and Downtown Eugene. Grocery stores and shops are just down the hill. Walk the Ridgeline Trail towards Mount Baldy or take a trail to Hendricks Park and the University of Oregon campus, then return to enjoy your private indoor Sauna or the outdoor, covered and private Hot Tub. Soak in the Japanese-style soaking tub with an endless supply of hot water or enjoy the curbless, rainfall shower. You'll also be fully digitally connected with a private landline phone; dedicated IP internet connection(WiFi & Wired); 2 High Definition Televisions with HD cable (w/Xfinity OnDemand) & smart blu-ray players featuring free access to Netflix, Amazon Prime & Hulu Plus w/ Showtime.

The bedroom features a queen size bed with a cozy, ultra comfy memory foam mattress with 800 thread-count sheets, a television, blu-ray player and large closet with full length mirrored doors. The living room features a queen size memory foam sleeper sofa as well as a twin bed which is curtained for privacy (and great spot to nap or escape a snoring spouse). The living room television is also equipped with a set of wireless headphones for late night movie watching! Step outside of the living room to the private covered patio with sitting area. Outside the living room, you’ll also find the 2-person Hot tub and we even provide the robes and towels!

The wonderful bathroom has a curbless shower with an overhead showerhead and 2 hand shower attachments. The Japanese-style soaking tub allows for a unique, luxurious and relaxing bathing experience.

About Kevin Leinbach

Together since 1998, John and Kevin have lived at CopperTree House since 2003. A top to bottom remodel in 2005 created CopperTree House’s spacious 1st floor suite, intended to provide a private, luxurious and yet accessible living space. The 1st floor steps were replaced with ramps to accommodate an aging parent. John & Kevin previously managed long term rental properties in Portland, Eugene and Florence, Oregon. Our 1st floor suite has not only housed Kevin’s parents, but also several friends, including one who was recovering from a motorcycle accident! Although we have incorporated accessibility features, our main focus has always been on making the unit attractive and comfortable for whoever stays there.

John is a former interior designer who is now helping people to go Gluten Free, teaching classes and providing consulting services through his website, KitchOut. He has recently begun releasing a series of Gluten Free cookbooks. Originally from Oklahoma, John has lived in Eugene since 1996 and graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Landscape Architecture. Kevin grew up in Eugene. He moved to Portland in 1984 and graduated from Lewis and Clark College with a Theatre Degree. Kevin was a producer for the New Rose Theatre, a professional theatre company in downtown Portland, Oregon before joining his mother in her work as an Astrology counselor and published author. Kevin returned to Eugene in 1997 to help provide care for his parents as they aged. After his parents passed away, Kevin returned to Astrology and is now giving readings and teaching private classes available through his website PlutosChild.

Kevin Leinbach purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Kevin Leinbach chose Eugene

CopperTree House is nestled into the hillside, with lovely filtered views of Eugene and it almost feels like we’re living in the trees, instead of on the ground. The cul-de-sac is quiet and private, with only local traffic and great neighbors who get together several times a year just to hang out. It’s almost like living out in the country. Yet the location is so convenient, with easy access to both Interstate 5 & downtown Springfield (to the east) and Amazon Parkway (to the west) leading to all the downtown Eugene attractions, yet with minimal traffic to slow you down.

What makes this apartment unique

While this is not a stand-alone property, it is a completely private unit but with the owners (both working from home) who are nearly always available to answer questions and give assistance. From offering directions to recommending restaurants to making introductions to the neighbors, we can offer an informal concierge service that is not usually available with an isolated property. If you give us a heads up, we will happily stock special pantry items, chill your favorite wine, make special arrangements and do our best to accommodate special requests in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible. And, of course, any necessary maintenance can be handled immediately.

Located in the Southeast Hills of Eugene, you will have easy access to everything the Southern Willamette Valley has to offer. Access the U of O campus in 5 minutes by car or take a pleasant 30 minute walk to Hayward Field past the Laurelwood Golf Course or Hendricks Park. Quick, 3 minute access to I-5 (past the LCC Campus) can take you north towards Portland, south towards Crater Lake and, of course, connect you to the east or west – you’ll get to the Cascade Mountains or the Pacific Ocean in a little over an hour.

Like a spa resort in a great location - the best!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay - it has a hot tub, sauna and wonderful soaking tub plus all the high end amenities and beautifully decorated. It is in a lovely and quiet neighborhood which is just a short drive to downtown Eugene. I wish we could have spent most of our 6 days there just relaxing and enjoying the resort, but alas we were house-hunting in Eugene. We hope to come back and just bliss out in this spa-like resort. Our stay there was enhanced by the delightful and very helpful hosts - John & Kevin - who live upstairs. They give you your privacy and are very professional. Plus they are truly decent and caring people who were very helpful to us with recommendations, etc re. Eugene, and it was a pleasure just chatting and laughing with them. Great place to stay & great hosts - what more could you ask for.

BEST PLACE TO STAY IN EUGENE!!!! Quiet, Residential, Only 15 minutes from Autzen Stadium!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this place! It's listed as an apartment but it feels like home! The pictures do not do it justice. I loved opening up the bathroom window to beautiful forest trees, and being able to get away from the city. We came down for an Oregon Duck game and after the craziness, it was nice to come back "home" and relax. The Rainfall shower is amazing, and the Japanese soaking tub is HUGE! The owners have thought of everything! The little room with the twin bed was so cute! The hot tub was perfect and the back area was very private and beautiful. Everything from reserving the house, to check-out was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. If we come back to Eugene, we will definitely be reserving this home again! We ate at Ambrosia which was amazing and not too far of a drive. Make sure to call and make reservations! Best Italian we've had in a long time. (the owners of the home have a notebook with a lot of recommendations and so glad we picked this restaurant they listed)

So, if you're coming to Eugene for a game, to visit family, or whatever may be, you will be charmed by this home and amenities. (and it's the same or less than a hotel!)

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely. We had privacy and everything we needed for a week away. We didn't interact much with our hosts, but when we did see them they were friendly and helpful. I had assumed that since they had ramps and the shower was a roll in, there would be safety bars at the toilet and shower. I should have asked. I have all the portable equipment, just failed to bring it. No problem tho, with a short trip to the local Walmart, all was resolved (portable equipment obtained). I'm only mentioning it so that anyone else who needs the info will know. It has no bearing on whether we enjoyed our stay. We did. And should we visit Eugene again, we will definitely try to book this apartment.

Owner's Response: Donna, we sincerely apologize for our lack of the proper facilities to fully accommodate your stay and appreciate your patience with our lack of thoughtfulness. We recently had someone else ask about the very issues your raised prior to booking, which has made us more aware of what needs to be available. We will certainly be more prepared should you choose to return!

Loved the grounds and amenities inside the home.

  • 5 of 5

There were beautufu gardens outside when we arrived. The condo was extremely clean with amenities that were unexpected, including a garden tub and a sauna inside. Beds were comfortable. Great rental. Very relaxing .

WOW ! This describes this VRBO. Located in a beautiful neighborhood. The private outside area is amazing and lush with beautiful landscaping. You can sit and hear the waterfall and birds and enjoy the quiet solitude. Kevin and John thought of everythng you need to make your stay comfortable and more. The wine and sparkling water were an amazing extras. If you want a vacation experience well above the normal "hotel" stay book your VRBO with John and Kevin.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved (lerved for Woody Allen fans) Coppertree House! The property was fantastic and Kevin and John were wonderful hosts.

We started our days baking in the private sauna and bathing in the Japanese soaking tub. We ended them in the outdoor jacuzzi. So relaxing and therapeutic!

One of the days, we just lounged and took advantage of the reading nook and abundant interesting books. We cooked simple breakfast and dinners in the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed the delicious wine that they kindly provided.

The location was private and quiet yet a short drive to downtown. One day, we visited the nearby Cascade Raptor Center which ended up being one of the highlights of our trip.

We have stayed in many "VRBO" homes in a few states, and this was one of our very favorites.

We will definitely be back. Thanks Kevin and John!
