Great stay on Maxwell B&B

5 on October 17, 2016

We had a fantastic stay on this B&B, Penny was a friendly host and helped us in everything we needed. The breakfast is delicious and the house is really beautiful.

Thank you so much for your review. I hope B&B's will be your new choice of where to stay! See you next time.

Just as beautiful as in the pictures

The home is absolutely beautiful. Located across from the college and only a short and beautiful walk through tree lined streets to downtown Walla Walla where there are so many shops and restaurants you could take a couple of days just wandering there. The home has a lovely front porch and a very inviting patio. Private off street parking. Inside the home is a wonderful example of a Craftsmen Home and beatiful furnishings and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. Breakfast was wonderful both days, blueberry french toast with strawberry topping was unbelievable. Fresh cookies and plenty of tea and fresh coffee in the butlers pantry. But the star of the B&B is Penny. She is so genuine and sweet and wants to make sure everything is just the way you want it. It would be a no brainer anytime we would be in Walla Walla we would stay at the Maxwell House.

We had a lovely stay. The location is perfect for strolling to downtown through the Whitman College campus. The house is historic and will take you back to another time!
