“Beautifully Decorated B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

We enjoyed one night at CLV on a recent visit to Eugene. As others have stated, this is a beautiful property that is well maintained. Our room was nice decorated and comfortable. The pantry was a nice touch with beverages and fresh cookies. Jack was a delightful host. The breakfast was just ok, not what I expected from such an elegant B&B. Despite this, I would certainly stay here again.

My husband and I greatly appreciated the hospitality at C'est La Vie in Eugene! Jack was a gracious host; even waiting up for us as we got into town so very late. What a nice thing to see your host, standing on the porch awaiting our arrival and helping us in the door and showing us around.

The linens were heavenly. The house was relaxing and quiet; i only wish we had been able to visit a little bit longer. Next time, for sure!

My daughter and I stayed at C'est la Vie on an extended trip visiting colleges. It was wonderful- a lovely place, very comfortable room, and Jack was a fantastic Eugene ambassador. We couldn't have hoped for a nicer stopover. P.S. Ask for the guided tour of the garden.

Jack and Anne Marie have lovingly restored the elegance of this lovely lady of a house, attention to detail is felt in every aspect of your stay. Attntiveness on the part of the owners without hovering and perfect comfort in the bedding and appointments of the rooms. The breakfast was continental cuisine wonderful fresh fruit and souffle and quiche at our stay and in the evening the guest fridge is stocked with fruit, milk, juice, soda and sometimes the cookie jar has fresh hot additions to have with your tea or coffee.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Charming, beautifully-maintained B and B, extremely friendly and helpful owners who make this feel like a home away from home. My 6th or 7th visit.

We were touring U of O with our daughter and I wasn't looking forward to another Best Western-type of experience in a college town. C'est La Vie is a charming, comfortable restored Victorian B & B and provided the intimate experience I was looking for. Jack was a very firendly, attentive host, who shared the history of the home, as well as his recommendations for places to eat. We had a great sleep and very nice breakfast. It's located only about 10 minutes from the U of O campus and is definitely the nicest home in an otherwise unremarkable neighborhood.

This is a beautiful house with a lovely garden and a gracious host (unfortunately, I did not have an opportunity to meet the hostess). The house is restored to mint condition with period furnishings and tasteful decoration. The rooms are impeccable. The garden is incredibly pretty (and I truly appreciated the little tour of it that the host offered me). The neighborhood is pretty and the breakfast was yummy. If I sound like I'm gushing, well, I guess I am, because I think this place is a real charmer and a real find.
