A' Tuscan Estate Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 8 McMinnville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 December 2012

I don't even know where to start on what all we liked about this place! My husband and I were on a mini honeymoon back in October and stayed at A'Tuscan for 2 nights while we were touring Oregon wine country. It was fabulous! We typically are not B&B people so we rented the Craftsman Apartment. This was a private full 1 bedroom apartment in the Coach House next to the main house. We loved this apartment and would have enjoyed more time in it. The bed, which we are very picky about, was extremely comfortable. And Liz, I still want the website for those sheets, they were amazing! Next time we go, I would like to buy some fresh ingredients and take advantage of the full kitchen and the great dining room. Liz was extremely accomodating, and on the morning I wasn't feeling well and couldn't stay to finish my breakfast (at the time I had just had the 1st of 6 procedures done on my mouth) she packed it up for my husband to bring back to me. Which was fantastic. Being a semi-foodie, I coulnd't wait to try Jacques breakfasts after all the reviews I read. I must say, they did not disappoint! I mean he presses his own truffle oil, what more can you say. Truly 5 star breakfast and perfect way to get a base for a day of wine tasting. We found we never craved anything to eat until late in the day after one of Jacques breakfasts. Beyond his cooking skills, he is truly a unique man to talk to, my husband and I greatly enjoyed our conversations with him. Liz and Jacques, thank you for making us feel so welcom in your home. We have already been thinking about a first anniversary trip back!

We recently stayed at this "Tuscan Estate' Bed & Breakfast and have nothing but praises for this establishment and their owners, Liz and Jacques. This old inn has a cozy atmosphere with a small garden. Love the collection of old irons, the culinary books and magazines available in the lobby. The inn has been kept in excellent shape and we were surprise how quiet it was. The room was not that spacious and moving around limited. The bed was very comfortable and the décor pleasant. Parking was no issue, right on the side or in the front entrance. They both went the extra miles to make our stay as memorable as possible. Liz helps us with our special wedding anniversary dinner reservation to a local high end restaurant, gave us information on local wineries, while Chef Jacques prepared amazing French breakfast meals for us. His presentation was artistic and have a fond memory of his egg truffle dish that was out of this world. His quince and blackcurrant homemade marmalade were so good, we had to order some to take home along with his homemade delicate truffle oil. We also appreciated the special attention to our dietary needs and all the food he prepared, visibly with much love, were amazing. Rare are those who meet my challenging :Chef Palette", Jacques is the first in a long time, thank you for such memorable culinary delights! Our only regret is that he no longer opens his place for dinner. In any event, we highly recommend this place and will return there when we have a chance.

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-October, and I am struggling to find anything more to add to all the positive things already said by the reviewers here. It felt like we were being welcomed into their home and Liz and Jacques went out of their way to accommodate our needs. My wife is a vegetarian and the breakfasts for her were fantastic as well as the breakfasts of the others we were traveling with. When we told them of our plans for wine tasting and for the Air Museum, they were quick with ideas, discount tickets and directions. Their suggestions for eating in McMinnville were right on the mark. Jacques is quite a character and we enjoyed talking to him about our travels in France...an unexpected "extra".

Room Tip: Like most B&Bs, the rooms are all a little bit different. If you have certain things that are im...

We spent two nights here in mid-October 2012. It truly is a delightful place. The rooms are well furnished with included bath. But the real attraction is the cooking of Jacques. The breakfasts we're simply unbelievable. My wife is lactose intolerant so Jacques provided wonderful alternatives to the quiche and home made croissants he served me. One morning it included a happy face of two eggs on toast in a smiley face. Another he provided a benedict with a spinach and potato pancake with egg on top while I was enjoying a tasty mini creme brulee with fresh fruit. The residence is in easy walking distance of McMinnville's main street with wonderful shops and wine tasting opportunities. I've stayed in b and b's around the globe this one is certainly among the top five.

I can restate all of the positive comments from previous posters; the lovely rooms, congenial hosts and amazing breakfasts or I can just suggest that if you are researching a convenient, comfortable B & B in the heart of the Willamette wine country and want that 'special experience', you can stop looking. This is the place. Cleanliness, comfort, cuisine, helpful owners and value for the experience all rate A+.

Our first visit to OR for wine tasting and we couldn't have found a nicer place to stay. Liz and Jacque are perfect hosts with Liz being a very knowledgeable go to for sightseeing and travel information. Needless to say Jacques breakfasts were out of this world and whenever we mentioned where we were staying to anyone they all were of the opinion that this is the place to stay. The property and rooms are beautiful and in my 30+ years of travelling this was the most comfortable bed and pillows that I ever slept on. We will be back for another visit very soon.
