Wonderful Experience!

4.8 on May 28, 2014

This was an excellent place to stay while going wine tasting in the region. We will definitely stay again when in the area, and would recommend to our friends!

Beautiful bnb

Had a fantastic time. Beautiful house and great location however the full payment was taken out of my account the day before we checked in with no warning. Not appropriate the day before payday and before vacation, usually you get an option to use a different card at the location that may work better for you.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for this input regarding the early credit card charge. Since the cancellation policy is 7 days I felt ok in charging your card 2 days early but will take this comment seriously and not do so again.

Love this Place

Will certainly visit again. Thank You Penny for your wonderful hospitality.

Beautiful home on Whitman campus

4.8 on April 10, 2014

We had a wonderful time and were so pleasantly surprised and how wonderful the home was. Went with two couples and we were both thrilled. Penny was outstanding and very accomodating to our needs since I had made an error in my online booking but she figured out a way to make it work for all of us. She's within a short walk of the downtown area through the Whitman campus. We'll definitely be back.

A wonderful B&B experience in Walla Walla, WA

4.6 on November 07, 2013

Our hostess/owner was warm and wonderful, and made us feel like special guests in her home. She joined us in conversation but was not at all intrusive. The two breakfasts that we enjoyed, prepared by Ms. Maxwell, were delicious and beautifully served. Our room was large, light and nicely decorated and contained all that we needed. Our king-size bed was especially comfortable and luxurious. The only addition we would have liked was a reading light on both sides of the bed -- there was only a lamp on one side. The in-town location is very close to Whitman College and an ideal base for wine-tasting and exploring the city, too. We definitely recommend the Maxwell House B&B for your stay in Walla Walla, WA.

Penny was wonderful, my sister and I loved our stay there and would go back again. We stayed during a race weekend we were participants in, on race morning, Penny prepared a custom race breakfast to accommodate our running needs. She even made our breakfast early that morning so we could be out the door on time. We stayed 3 nights and the other breakfasts were fabulous too. Downtown is walking distance, and a safe night walk, we hardly used our car at all.

Great Bed and Breakfast

Great location, wonderful host. The breakfast was very good.

Just Lovely!

4.6 on October 13, 2013

Our 3-day stay at The Maxwell House was totally relaxing and quite lovely. Penny was very accommodating, both before and during our stay. She has furnished the house to perfectly straddle the line between special and comfortable. Lots of little touches add interest and elegance, but we absolutely felt at home. Breakfasts were served at our convenience each morning and included a nice variety of tasty treats; homemade cookies, coffee and tea were available at all times. We loved the location adjacent to the Whitman College campus; downtown Walla Walla with its wide array of restaurants and tasting rooms is a pleasant 15-minute walk.

Great location!

We had a wonderful experience at the Maxwell House. Penny was very welcoming when we arrived. The room was spacious, warm, and clean. The breakfasts were delicious. The location was perfect for walking to downtown. It was a little to cold to enjoy the garden or front porch, but imagine that we would have spent some time reading in the garden if it were summertime. I highly recommend this accommodation for the quality and the price.
