When you hear the phrase "laissez les bon temps rouler," which in English translates to "let the good times roll," the first place you think of is probably New Orleans.

But after this week's Escape, your first thought might just be MaMere's Bed & Breakfast in Monmouth, Oregon.

Why? It's a Big Easy-inspired inn—replete with furnishings reminiscent of a masquerade ball—about 60 miles southwest of Portland. Your package includes a two-night stay for two ($120), daily breakfast for two, a bottle of Willamette Valley's finest wine, and a box of chocolates.

Located smack in the middle of the Willamette Valley, which is gaining traction in the wine world for its luscious Pinot Noirs, MaMere's is equidistant from the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains—the perfect spot from which to explore this trifecta of wine, sea, and mountain fabulousness.

Though you're surrounded by some of Oregon's most beautiful landscapes, you'll want to unwind at the inn before you let the good times roll. MaMere's owner, Terri Gregory, has painstakingly restored and decorated the house with French and New Orleans flair in every detail, and the result is at once vibrant and calming.

Each of five funky rooms (three with shared baths) is adorned with mint-condition retro furniture and original artwork, and three of the rooms come with queen-size beds while the other two have a full-size bed plus a daybed with trundle. After you've found your bearings, borrow a bike and take a relaxing ride to the beautiful lavender fields of nearby Lavender Lakes Farm.

When you're ready to see the sights, you'll have choices—more than 400, actually, if you're looking to visit one of the many wineries in the area. Never fear: Terri can recommend one of her favorites.

You may also choose to explore the stunning Oregon coastline, about an hour west by car, or the Cascade Mountains, an hour east by car, where you can ski, snowboard, hike, bike, tube, or pretty much anything else your outdoor heart desires.

There's something for tout le monde—that means "everyone," which includes you—at MaMere's. Book this week's Escape and let the fun begin.
