Penny's Delightful attention to detail

From her smiling welcome when she opens the front door, to her beautifully set breakfast table she assures that your visit is custom fit to your needs.

Wonderful place!

We had an excellent stay at the Maxwell House. Penny is the perfect hostess and the room was lovely. We even met some great folks who have been staying there for wine release weekends for 10 years! The location was perfect--close to downtown and convenient to get to all the wineries as well.

Such a lovely host!

I've stayed with Penny several times now, and she is an unfailingly generous host-this time meeting me at the airport! I love staying with her--rooms are comfortable, the porch inviting, and attentive service at breakfast.

Penny was extremely accommodating to us and our dietary limitations. Her puffy eggs were very tasty. We would stay there agin.

A Gem In Walla Walla

Just a wonderful place in the heart of town, down the street from Whitman College. We stayed two nights and enjoyed it immensely.

Great stay on Maxwell B&B

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.

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!

Gracious and beautiful in a perfect location

Innkeeper Penny made sure all guests felt welcome and had complete information for enjoying the town and wineries. She also makes awesome chocolate chip cookies.

Fabulous Wala Wala stay
