The Lanzarotta Bed & Breakfast: Luxury Meets Nature in Oregon!

the Lanzarotta Guest House in Eugene Oregon

The Lanzarotta Bed & Breakfast is a unique and special bed and breakfast in Eugene, Oregon. As we drove in on the windy country road, we were focused on spotting deer in the trees, that could dart in front of our car at any moment.

We were deep in the heart of nature, and the tall trees arching overhead like an urban barrel lining the sides of Hamm Road, felt like we were in a movie.

Once we pulled onto the long gravel driveway leading to the Lanzarotta Bed and Breakfast, we were greeted by 40 acres of Oregon forest stretching into the heart of  Southern Willamette Valley wine country.

The owners, Beth and Mark Lanzarotta, had a dream and wanted to share it with the world. Using wood harvested directly from their property, they built the Lanzarotta Bed and Breakfast (most of it they built themselves) and added two luxury guest rooms. These rooms attach to their house, giving guests all the privacy of a hotel, with the warm feel of a four-star B&B.

Rooms at The Lanzarotta Bed & Breakfast

Our room, the Pacific Yew Suite, was a literal treehouse. It’s the most romantic and sought-after room at the Lanzarotta Bed and Breakfast, and we could hear sounds from the local wildlife all around. The suite is a large second-story room filled with handcrafted woodwork that’s so rustic and lovely.

The wood was milled right there on the property from the beautiful Pacific Yew trees, a slow-growing hardwood found in this unique area. All of the details in this suite felt so personal, and they were handcrafted by Mark.

Despite the rustic feel, our suite was filled with modern amenities like Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a refrigerator, and a microwave (to name only a few!) The large kitchen and cozy sitting area gave us all the comforts of home. Lying in the king-size Tempurpedic bed and looking at the stars through the skylight was pretty magical.

The suite was flooded with natural light. The forest views from the wrap-around deck made the space feel like a sunlit sanctuary as we rested after our long drive. Beth and Mark’s passion for the Lanzarotta Bed and Breakfast and local craftsmanship shows in every detail.

The other part of B(ed) is the B(reakfast) and oh my, what a treat! Beth whips up fresh homemade treats, with juice and coffee each morning at 8.30am. The breakfast room is bright and welcoming and simply begs you to linger.

We lingered over breakfast and learned all about Beth and Mark’s story as we chatted together and sipped our coffee. One of our favorite parts about traveling is getting to meet interesting and lovely people from around the world and to listen to their stories.
