Maxwell House--The best!

5 on September 26, 2017

We always stay at Penny's Maxwell House when visiting Walla Walla. The inn is beautiful with many high-quality finishes and furnishings. Penny is a delightful hostess who is always happy to see us return. Penny's chocolate chip cookies are yummy, and her breakfasts are divine. The Maxwell House fills up fast, so make your reservations early--you won't be disappointed.


Fabulous Place to Stay in Washington Wine Country

I can not think of a better place to stay in Walla Walla than the Maxwell House. It truly is one of the finest bed and breakfasts. The inn is conveniently located within a few blocks of Whitman College and downtown Walla Walla. Downtown has many tasting rooms and restaurants, and Is about 9 blocks away. The inn iis located in a beautiful residential area with a covered front porch and comfortable back patio. There is free WiFi and parking behind the inn. Our room was extremely clean, beautifully furnished with plenty of room. There are only 4 rooms, so it was quiet. The innkeeper, Penny, is a gracious and helpful hostess. She welcomed us to the inn with refreshing glasses of iced tea and fresh cookies. Breakfasts are outstanding, and Penny is helpful with restaurant and local attraction information. If you are headed to Washington wine country, I would highly recommend staying here.


Would definitely return!

From the moment we rang the doorbell, Penny treated us as very special friends! Such s beautiful house, and our room was lacking for nothing, Not a short walk to town, but easy walk to the Whitman campus for wonderful walks! Penny accommodated the gluten-free issue beautifully. Highly recommend this B&B.

Amazing B&B experience!

Penny is the most thoughtful hostess and spoiled us rotten. Gourmet breakfast daily, fresh cookies in the afternoon, and lovely patio and porch to relax on in the cool of the evening. All in a charming house in a historic neighborhood. What's not to like!


Great wine getaway

Loved the Maxwell House B&B. Beautiful, well kept turn of the century property. Clean, spacious, quiet with a great shower. Penny is a darling hostess and proudly prepares incredible breakfasts. I recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Walla Walla.

My family (4 generations) rented the house for three nights and really enjoyed the beautifully decorated and comfortable home atmosphere. Penny was a wonderful inn-keeper and provided delicious and eye appealing breakfasts. Thank you Penny for providing the stage for our wonderful week-end. Joan B.


Like Coming Home!

The Maxwell House B&B is one of our favorite places. The quiet, relaxing atmosphere puts everyone in a wonderful frame of mind. You can actually see people becoming more relaxed from day-to-day. Penny is such a delight and a gracious host: Great conversation and suggestions about the Walla Walla area. And, of course, the warm cookies every afternoon are everyone's favorite.

Fantastic place to stay. Close to downtown but far enough away and located in a lovely neighborhood. Penny is a fabulous and caring hostess. Looking forward to returning as soon as the schedule allows it.


A wonderful home!

Wonderfully appointed, beautifully decorated, immaculately kept, and graciously hosted by Penny! The house is gorgeous, ideally located, and quiet. Penny's home-cooked food sustained us as we toured around wine country. A serene time in a great area of our state. Thank you Penny!
