Arriving at Century house after a five hour drive, Jean - the owner - greeted my mother and I with a smile and warm cookies just out of the oven. Her 102 year old home is beautifully updated, with just the right mix of original charm and modern comfort and convenience. Jean is engaging and solicitous but respectful of space and privacy. Her three lovely guest bedrooms, each different in size and amenities, are comfortable and inviting. Breakfast in the gracious main room is fresh and tasty. Friends who are not guests can be included in the breakfast for an additional charge. Century House is walking distance from Willamette University, the State Capitol and the original downtown area. A wonderful experience.
