This is a wonderfully renovated bed and breakfast Queen Anne Victorian from the late 1880's. Four guest rooms, all in French Impressionist themes. The collection of antiques and entire house decor is amazing and wonderful. The hosts are congenial and provide an excellent breakfast. The front and back yards are beautiful gardens and immaculately landscaped. The location makes it easy...

Yes...this is it. One of the most beautiful Queen Anne restorations I have had the pleasure to see, let alone spend time in. Rooms are perfectly appointed. Hosts are generous and kind and have thought of everything to make your stay pleasurable. Highly recommend.

Our room -- the Matisse -- was wonderful. Large and quiet and beautifully furnished. The bathroom was ultra clean and large and boasted a shower and claw-foot tub. Jack, our host, was able to help point us in the direction of restaurants. And he served a delicious breakfast. We are a bit wary of b&bs but this inn was so...

We have stayed two time here, as our daughter attends The University of Oregon. The house and gardens are amazing. There is an incredible crow's nest that is perfect for sipping tea...or wine. The owners are incredibly helpful and the breakfasts are to die for!!! Stay and you will be very glad with your choice!

Seven years ago we ended our review with “we’d stay there again”, and we’re glad we did. We rented the entire place for a long weekend for a family wedding. Jack and Anne-Marie and the whole staff were especially accommodating, letting us choose a time for breakfast, being flexible about other timing, and being surprisingly calm when the overloaded Happy...

The inn is is a great location while visiting Eugene. We had the VERY SMALL Gauguin room. (if you are a big person, get another room) Thank goodness the inn had central air conditioning because when we were there it was 104 degrees in Eugene. The grounds are beautiful and you can tell Jack puts lots of effort in keeping...

This home was quite beautifully restored and the grounds are absolutely lovely. There was a slightly unpleasant "Old house smell" that diminished our enjoyment. The innkeeper, Jack, was very attentive. The breakfast was not anything spectacular. We were asked what time we wanted to have breakfast the night before, but then ended up waiting a half hour before being served...

Indeed, that particular morning was not representative of what we normally offer our breakfast guests. The sudden illness of our venerable kitchen cook had an palpable effect on the quality and timeliness of the meals. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

We enjoyed our stay in the Casablanca suite over the 4th of July weekend. The inn and garden are beautifully maintained and decorated with style. Located in a quiet neighborhood. Our suite was large and had a small kitchenette. Breakfast was wonderful and Jack was a first class host.
