Maxwell House was the perfect place to stay. An easy walk into the heart of downtown and the Whitman campus, the delicious breakfasts were a delight to the senses. The owner's attention to detail enhanced every aspect of our visit from the first chocolate chip cookie out of the oven to the warm fire in the evening.

Great B&B at the perfect location - within walking distance to downtown Walla Walla. Angie (innkeeper) was wonderful, and she cooked wonderful breakfasts both Saturday and Sunday. We'll stay there again if/when we go back for a weekend getaway. Tom & Lezlie Post Falls, Idaho

A Great B&B!

We had a great time at the Maxwell House B & B. Penny was a wonderful host and we loved our breakfast each morning. Our room was very inviting and the king size bed was perfect. We highly recommend the Maxwell House B & B if you are going to visit Walla Walla.

So glad we found the Maxwell House

This is our favorite B&B. We've stayed at the Maxwell house 3 times in the last couple of years, and each time has been a true pleasure. The historic house has been beautifully renovated and furnished. It's in a lovely neighborhood, and in easy walking distance to the college and downtown. Most of all Penny is a marvelous hostess and a treasure. .

Wonderful experience

Staying at this bed and breakfast was our first experience at one. It was wonderful. Much better than a hotel room. The innkeeper was so friendly and willing to offer information on the area, but it was also very quiet and private. The bedroom suites are so comfortable it was like we were at home and in our own little world. The neighborhood was clean, quiet and beautiful. Very near a large nice park and the college while being only a few blocks from downtown. We would highly recommend this B and B

The Maxwell House B&B is homey, clean, and a nice quiet place to stay. The breakfast was excellent, and the other people staying at the Maxwell House when we were there were very friendly. The conversation was excellent. Our hostess was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Charming & Beautiful B&B

Our family was visiting Walla Walla to visit Whitman College. Although we were traveling in northwest to visit some other colleges with our daughter, we all fell in love with the Walla Walla area and had an especially memorable time at The Maxwell House. Penny, the inn keeper was fabulous. She was personable and very accommodating. Her B&B was everything we hoped it would be.

Great Location and Relaxing Visit

I chose this location because I am alumnus of Whitman College and I thought the shadiness of the trees in town would make the summer days cooler. We were not disappointed. We were able to walk to eat in town and to stroll around campus. My wife ran each morning and found the town very easy to navigate. I would highly recommend the Maxwell House Bed and Breakfast.

Ben & Marisela Stay

We were looking for a nice getaway from our kids and found a gem at the Maxwell House. They were very gracious and accomidating the whole weekend. We would recommend the Maxwell House to anyone who is looking for a nice weekend in Walla Walla, Wa. The best part (besides the great breakfast!) was sitting the backyard drinking wine in the evening. Thank you for a great weekend! Ben & Marisela

Wonderful Experience!
