Our visit to Walla Walla

4.2 on August 21, 2014

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

5 on August 20, 2014

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

4.8 on August 05, 2014

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.

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!

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

4.2 on April 23, 2014

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.
