This is a beautifully restored Queen Anne-style home. Everything about it is immaculate. The owners are very accommodating and helpful. The gardens are great, with lots of private nooks. I would go back in a heartbeat!

A fantastic B and B.Jack has everything waiting for you. Besides your room he has cookies and coffee available when you check in. The breakfast is immaculate and besides a great bed and nicely decorated room and bathroom he has a fabulous manicured garden all around the home. This is a Victorian Home stay which will not disappoint you. We...

A group of us stayed at the C'est La Vie Inn in Eugene during a bicycle tour of the Willamette Valley. I can't say enough good things about the host and his communication with us before our visit and during a tumultuous time when our our original transportation plans fell through. The property was beautiful and the breakfast served was...

This is one of the coolest, nicest places I've ever had the pleasure to stay! To say the house is gorgeous is an understatement. It is positively magical! The innkeepers did not skimp on any detail when they restored this place. Everything, down to the door hinges, is authentic and either beautifully restored, or is a high quality replica. The...

My new wife and I discovered the C'est La Vie Inn through some of my co-workers and thought about reserving the Casablanca Suite for the night of our wedding in mid-July in Eugene. When I phoned and spoke with Jack, he suggested we come and check the place out before we confirmed any details. During our visit, we talked about...

My wife and I stayed there during the Eugene Marathon because it got such great reviews and it truly lived up to its name. Jack was a great innkeeper and did a great job playing host to everyone. The breakfast was great and the staff accommodated my wife's specific dietary requests. The inn itself was beautiful and the garden was...

What a gem! Wonderful host and beautiful inn. You'll never see a Victorian in this kind of restored (better than new) shape. Exquisite attention to detail, this really is a labor of love which the owners are kind enough to share. Don't compare it to hotels or other experiences. We enjoyed sharing breakfast with the other guests and highly recommend...

This inn is tucked away in a neighborhood with a beautiful garden. The inn keepers have created a beautiful experience inside and out. They are very attentive to their guest. They have thought of every detail. The only downside for us was that the bed was super soft and uncomfortable. We will try a different room on our next visit.

This is the most elegant, well appointed and well organized bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in -- but don't think that means overly formal or stiff, not at all. Owner Jack was a charming and fun host, even firing up the outdoor G-gauge railroad although none of the guests that day had kids. Jack is an avid gardner...

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this lovely B and B. The grounds and decor are beautiful, and our room "Gauguin" was inviting and comfortable after a long day of driving. After sleeping more soundly than I had in months, breakfast was delicious, the company was delightful, and we regretted planning to stay only one night. The...
