Meet the Innkeepers ~ C’est la Vie Bed and Breakfast

Your innkeepers at C’est la Vie Bed and Breakfast,  Josh and Miriam have been married for 34 years.  They moved to Eugene in 1993 and have two adult children and three grandcats.

“We had owned rental properties for over two decades and had been thinking about consolidating our properties when C’est la vie presented herself.  We had lived in the neighborhood for over 12 years and could see the inn from our bedroom window.  Josh likes to joke that I wanted to become an innkeeper after binge watching the Gilmore Girls! I work at the University of Oregon as an administrator and Josh retired as a Chief Information Office in 2015.

“Being an Innkeeper is the perfect business for us.  Josh had years of construction experience before going into IT and he’s an amazing cook and gardener.  We like to say that this property called to him because she was in need of some serious love and care to address deferred maintenance.  It’s hard to find someone who wants to work on an old house, so luckily he has the skills to do it himself.

“For me, I love talking to people from different places and hearing their stories.  Owning an Inn is like traveling without having to leave home.  The best part is that we didn’t have to leave our wonderful Eugene neighborhood to own an Inn.”

C’est la Vie Inn Bed and Breakfast is a preeminent place to stay in Eugene, whether visiting local family or friends, celebrating a wedding or anniversary, or transforming a business trip into something less arduous, you will find that the Inn is quite ideal.  Since its renaissance in 2007, this handsomely restored bed and breakfast inn has been recognized as one of Oregon’s premier examples of Queen Anne architecture and offers a quiet urban oasis for the traveler with discriminating taste
