Overview

Washington House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Library, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Located in Walla Walla’s favorite neighborhood, the Juniper Guest House is like no other vacation rental. The house is just blocks from the downtown area, the beautiful Whitman College campus, and the famous John Olmsted designed, Pioneer Park. Step inside and take a look, you will not be disappointed.

The Juniper Guest House was built in 1909, the same year that Pioneer Park was opened to the public. This beautiful mission-style, arts and crafts home is the perfect place to stay, while you explore Walla Walla and the lush valley that surrounds it.

The house features four bedrooms, each showcasing queen sized beds with exquisite bedding, a dining room accommodating six, parlor including game table and desk, living room, full kitchen sporting island seating for four, and finally, three well appointed bathrooms (one with jetted tub), and large finished basement with wet-bar for entertaining and room for banquets.

Outside, you will find a gorgeous and beautifully outfitted front porch, a back deck for entertaining, and fully fenced yard.

About John and Vince

My name is John Sterlin. I was born and raised in Walla Walla Washington!

Why John and Vince chose Washington

My husband and I chose to turn our future retirement home in to a vacation rental to help defer the costs of maintaining two residences. We opened a business on Main Street in Walla Walla so purchasing a house to stay in while we worked at our business seemed the right thing to do. We love Walla Walla and most of all, we love the house! The moment we walked in the front door we fell in love with the house just as we know you will!

What makes this house unique

We absolutely LOVE the front porch of this house. Every morning we have coffee while enjoying the beautiful street and every evening we sit and enjoy a glass or two of wonderful Walla Walla wine! The living room, parlor, and dinning rooms are all just beautiful with their un-touched arts and crafts style wood trim built-in seating. This house is our zen and it will be yours as well.

Beautiful home - close to town - amazing furnishings!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night visit at this lovely home. The rooms were beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Downtown was close, plenty of good restaurants, and I was amazed at the number of wineries just a few minutes away.

The only downside was that my husband is handicapped. We stayed on the main floor, where most activities took place. However, to get there you had to go up a very narrow stairwell with about 7-8 stairs that were quite steep, with no handrail. We also had a clawfoot tub in the master bath which really needed grab bars to safely get in and out. There were walk-in showers downstairs and upstairs but that meant more stair climbing.

Best decision EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 family members that met up in Walla Walla, WA (halfwayish point between Portland and Boise). The 4 bedrooms and huge basement space made it comfortable for everyone to get a good night's sleep! There was a lovely, large living room, an eat-in kitchen, a small sunroom and wonderful backyard deck and grassy area for everyone to socialize, or not, as desired. Having the ability to have private spaces for down-time was key to a stress-free weekend. Having the full kitchen saved us lots of money we would have spent on restaurants. All in all one of the best family gatherings we've ever had! I would definitely recommend this place. It's the home I wish I had without the hassles of owning a large home ;)

Superb.

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations. We had three couples, us and our two married children and their spouses. Each couple had a self-contained area (upper, main, lower), each with its own bathroom. The main floor is really great and beautifully furnished. The kitchen was perfect for group meal prep and hanging out and pretty well appointed. The various sitting areas indoors and out are great for conversation, reading, whatever. The front porch, a sanctuary. The ONLY drawback was the pillows, which were very bouncy and uncomfortable and the sheets, which we thought were polyester and also not comfortable. Otherwise, everything about the house and yard was flawless. The alley access and parking are an added bonus. This property is ideal for multiple couples and good sized families. Plenty of space; tasteful touches; and turn of the century charm. We loved it.

Charming house in gracious neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this absolutely lovely 4 bedroom home in Walla Walla. The house is a short walk (12-15 min) to town through lovely tree lined streets with gorgeous homes to look at while you walk. Juniper House is full of vintage curios and furniture which adds to its charm. It has a wonderful front verandah just made for sipping Walla Walla wines in the evening or starting your day with a cup of coffee. It is a quiet neighbourhood and lends itself to great sleeps. We would highly recommend this place and will stay there again.

The house is everything as advertised and more. It is in a quiet neighborhood just 15 minutes walk to downtown. The furnishings and decorations are beautiful and comfortable. We would definitely rent this house again.

A beautifully maintained historic home

  • 5 of 5

John and Vince have a great eye for detail. The home provides plenty of dishes and wine glasses. We were a party of 6 women for a wine tasting get away. There was enough beds for us to be comfortable. The sunroom was perfect for coffee in the morning. We lucked out with the weather on our last day. We got to enjoy the back patio table at dinner time. We will return again. Side note: we did end up driving our car into town both days because it's a mile away. But the walk would be beautiful.
