Secret Garden is an intimate, European-style Boutique Hotel one block from the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Within walking distance to Matthew Knight Arena, Track City – Hayward Field, Steve More Prefontaine’s Memorial, Hendricks Park, Autzen Stadium, Willamette River and riverside bike paths, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Maude Kerns Art Center, Beall Concert Hall and several Restaurants including Agate Ally, Beppe & Gianni’s Trattoria, Studio One Cafe, Wild Duck and McMenamins. In the late 1990s when Becky Kaiser became steward of this stately home once owned by the Baker family of the distinguished newspaper, the Eugene Register Guard. She brought with her the aura of her grandfather, Henry Kaiser, known as the father of modern American ship building. As the small inn’s proprietor, Becky Kaiser developed its themed charm from the book The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.Since May 2008 when Don Flinn assumed ownership, Secret Garden’s charming staff continues the tradition of providing a sophisticated level of comfort and courtesy. The common rooms consist of a large lobby with intimate seating areas with fireplaces, two large dining rooms & gorgeous gardens ideal for weddings, meetings and social gatherings. Delicious on site catering provided and the attention to detail to create your perfect event. The staff enjoys sharing knowledge of the recreational pleasures of the Willamette Valley including the annual Oregon Bach Festival, Oregon Mozart Players, Prefontaine Classic, UofO Football & Basketball games, NCAA Track & Field, wine tastings at nearby King Estates and always golf, especially at Bandon Dunes on the Oregon coast.
