The Owner purchased this house in 2008
We had visited Walla Walla for the first time in April 2006 for a friend's 50th birthday. We stayed in a VRBO vacation home and that's how it all started. We fell in love with Walla Walla, the climate, the community and especially the WINERIES! We wanted a place of our own as well as being able to share this experience with others.
The big maple trees, the historically old homes and the vast acres of vineyards are so relaxing and take you back in time to a peaceful and inviting place to relax.
We named Clara's Cottage after Rebecca's mom who passed away in 1996. Clara loved old Victorian homes, antiques and old trees. We have decorated the home in her taste, using some of her antiques and trinkets. We have also provided guests the 'Legend of Clara's Cottage' which is an intriguing history of Clara's Cottage . . . or what could have been its history.
As a guest, you will feel like you are back in time by the neighborhood that Clara's Cottage is in. The big park, Pioneer Park, is just 1 block away and is terrific for a stroll in the early morning or evening. Many wineries are within walking distance in the historical downtown area which has some amazing restaurants as well. You can curl up with a book in the living room, looking out at the beautiful gardens of Clara's Cottage or you can enjoy a good game of cards whether it is poker or a family game in the the family room. The best part of staying at Clara's Cottage is it is truly a 'home away from home' where you will want to return time and time again.
We are back home now and reflecting on the wonderful time we all had at Clara’s Cottage. You have done a great job of keeping it charming and up to date. Not one person was in need of a thing! It is all there. I only wish that we were there long enough to enjoy the back yard.
We stayed at Clara's Cottage for 5 days for our daughter's graduation and it was simply spectacular.
There is nothing missing for a family, group, or couples to have a marvellous holiday. There is so much room, the bedrooms are enormous, the beds are comfy, there are two living areas that can accomodate all situations. Cal has made sure that when you arrive it is like being in your own home, there are towels galore, extra blankets, enough plates and glasses to serve multitudes!
The garden is divine, and the outside area a wonderful place to sit and have a glass of wine in the late afternoon.
I can't recommend Clara's Cottage enough. You won't regret staying there.
We had a wonderful birthday and college graduation weekend at Clara's Cottage. It was an ideal and roomy place for friends and family. We gathered for dinners and cook outs, and hung out in the backyard and on the porch. We also enjoyed using fresh herbs from the garden! The kitchen was well-stocked and the beds were very comfortable after long days.
We loved our stay at Clara's Cottage. The house is warm, comfortable and well appointed. We really enjoyed the personal touches in the house. It was perfect for our girls weekend in Walla Walla. The neighborhood and location near the park was lovely.
Nice place and affordable for first time visit. Would definitly recommend to people going for the first time. Had all the amenities as described, great kitchen. Beautiful flower garden. Clean and maintained, everything was in working order. Great time was had by all, would definitly do again. Check out the Mill Creek Brewery, close and affordable. Also would highly highly recommend the Marc, Vineyard Lounge, try the Kobe Burger, best burger ever had, great staff and very helpful. As for wineries would highly recommend the South Region, Saviah and Zerba, great people and made the trip that much more enjoyable and trying new wines so much easier.
We had a wonderful time this week-end. Clara's Cottage was wonderful and perfect for us gals. We enjoyed the big sectional couch and bathrobes for everyone. I would highly recommend Clara's to anyone visiting Walla Walla.
