Quite A Find

5 on January 01, 2015

Spent three delightful nights here: warm, quiet, comfortable, cosy, welcoming, with delicious food, in the most beautiful surroundings...quite a find!

Stress-free Destination

I opted for this lovely bed and breakfast to end a recent business trip. Curbside charm only builds anticipation when you arrive. The grounds are artistically groomed, with a breathtaking array of flowers. Attention to detail may be found throughout the inn, from the dish of chocolates in the dining room to vases of flowers in the rooms. The innkeepers are quite friendly and most accommodating. The location is superb. Rooms are quiet and immaculate, with beautiful furnishings. Breakfast is phenomenal! Highly recommend this establishment.

Excellent staycation

My partner and I stayed in the Casablanca suite for our anniversary. We are from Eugene and just wanted a night away from home. The inn was gorgeous, filled with Victorian antiques. Jack, the innkeeper, met us as the door and showed us around before dropping us at our room. We selected the room because of the jacuzzi tub, which was giant! They had everything we could have wanted; a variety of snacks and beverages , books, magazines, even those little extras like q-tips and cotton balls, in case we'd forgotten ours. Breakfast was amazing and at our exact requested time served in the dining room. Even though I don't usually eat breakfast I finished almost everything that was placed in front of me. The innkeepers even honored out request for late check-out at noon for no extra charge. Overall we had a wonderful time and could not have asked for a more beautiful setting and top-notch service and amenities. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an excellent B&B experience in Eugene.

Authentic Queen Anne

The house preserves its historic feel but at the same time is one of the most well-appointed bed & breakfasts we have stayed in.

So Sweet!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The room was beautiful as well as the grounds, and it is all extremely well kept. And stocked up much better than any other room we have ever stayed in. They even keep fruit and cookies out for a little midnight snack. You get a homemade breakfast every morning, and Jack is so, so friendly! He is one of the sweetest men we have ever met. The location is perfect as well! It's right in the middle of town, so you can walk to several places. But so serine. We would recommend it to anyone!

Loved our stay

We enjoyed a lovely stay at C'est la Vie. The Casablanca Suite is absolutely wonderful along with the beautiful gardens. Jack and Ann Marie are such great hosts. We look forward to another visit.

Overnight in Eugene

What a fun place! We loved the history of the house and all the attention to detail the owners paid to the restoration. And I think I could live upstairs in the carriage house... We'll be back!

Lovely Getaway

4.8 on September 05, 2013

C'est la Vie is a wonderful place to get away for a few days. It is a unique and beautiful Inn that has peaceful rooms and a gorgeous garden. You can tell the owners of the Inn take great pride in it! Breakfast is delicious and there are many great restaurants within walking distance.

Great place to stay in Eugene

June Vacation

5 on June 29, 2013

This is certainly a diamond in the rough. As we were driving down the street looking for it, we kept thinking "what did we do?" However, the moment we spotted the home, we were delighted. The gardens are spectacular and the home is quaint and beautiful. Our host couldn't have been more helpful, the breakfasts were delicious and they share recipes! We had the private suite over the garage and it was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. They thought of everything - the smallest details were taken care of. We definitely would recommend it and will definitely return the next time we are in Eugene.
