Charming Creek Side Cottage Close to Whitman and Wine Tasting

Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Location is KEY! Our Charming Cottage is well off of the street, next to a year round creek. In the spring it is frequented by ducklings and their family's.

We've landscaped the space to provide a special experience for our guests, with plenty of sun and seating outside by the stream. Large mature trees grace the neighborhood, keeping the area cool and green. The cottage sits behind a house with quiet full time renters. If you bring your car, we've reserved the driveway for you. But you might prefer the bikes we have provided for your easy access to all the area had to offer. Downtown Walla Walla with multiple wine tasting rooms and Whitman campus are so close, you won't want to use your car. Multiple routes leave from the Cottage for rides and walks along the the lovely neighborhood streets.

Inside the cottage is bright and sunny and spacious. The Kitchen is fully stocked for cooking the fresh produce you bring home from the farmers market. Or to reheat the left overs from so many great restaurants with in walking distance. Safeway is a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive away.

In the bedroom you can look forward to a restful night in the top quality king sized bed, complete with luxury linens. We also just completed a remodel of the bathroom; new vanity, shower and all new plumbing.

What a treat for your next retreat!

About Meredith

Retirement seems to be so close! Just have to get those kids through college and then we can play!

Meredith purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Meredith chose Washington

Our daughter chose to attend Whitman College, and we're glad she did! While visiting her in WW we found this property and loved it. The property consists of 2 houses, with the 'Cottage' in the back of the property. Initially we rented the Cottage to Whitman visiting professors, but we decided it was perfect for our vacations. And yours too!

What makes this cottage unique

I like walking around our neighborhood; to the ballpark on summer evening for a ball game; to the bakery in the morning for fresh bread, or the Farmers Market for veggies. A bike ride up Mill Creek is a must do, if you have your bike along on your stay. Soak your feet in the cool creek on a hot day. And a Theater performance seems always to be in production. So much to do and so little time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing weekend away, your cottage is adorable and was perfect! Everything about it was exactly what we needed/wanted for the weekend. Fritz loved laying in the grass and watching the little stream. Walla walla is so dog-friendly and he loved tagging along with us all weekend! Apart from the wineries and relaxing outside at the cottage we loved how walkable everything was. Great location!

We truly enjoyed our stay and will totally use your cottage on future trips, and we have already told several friends about it as well.

Wonderful walking neighborhood, with large mature trees for shade and fall color. Very close to the Whitman campus, and downtown. If you would like a car-less, careless vacation, fly into to the regional Airport and take public transit to this vacation rental (contact us for details). Borleske Stadium is walking distance from the cottage, for Walla Walla Sweets baseball games..

quiet and relaxing weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great place to spend a weekend. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. When we had a question about check-out, Meredith was quick to respond and super helpful. The location was convenient to restaurants and wineries, and the neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. We would absolutely stay here again on another trip to Walla Walla - thanks for a relaxing weekend away!

Quiet, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is quite roomy with all the amenities. There is a sweet garden with a stream and chairs for reading outside. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. There are even good reading lamps, something frequently absent from rentals or hotels. The washer and dryer were even better than the ones I have at home! It was the perfect place for our stay.

Super comfy, clean, quiet and close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, the vrbo pics do not do this place justice. Charming older cottage completely remodeled, functional and fully equipped. Beautiful garden in a lovely, quiet neighborhood that is inviting and relaxing. We would have used bikes except one had a flat but no matter since the Whitman campus, Safeway and entire downtown are a pretty easy walk. This was our first visit to Walla Walla, just goofing around tasting wine and sightseeing and this place was a perfect home base. Owner Meredith was very conscientious, preemptively insuring we had proper driving directions and the house lock code before our trip. In all, a superior and happy experience we would repeat without hesitation. A highlight was the gorgeous drive to spectacular Palouse Falls!

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the cottage very close to Whitman and a short walk to downtown Walla Walla. The cottage had everything we needed to feel comfortable and when the sun came out we enjoyed some wine and snacks at the picnic table by the creek. The bed was comfortable, the cottage was clean - all in all a great place to stay.

Beautiful yard, lovely cottage, comfortable, charming, cozy, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Best place to stay in Walla Walla. We have been there twice and will definitely be back. Easy walk into town, peaceful and quiet at night. Kitchen with all the basics for cooking at home, including spices, but a dishwasher would be a nice addition. Safeway nearby. King bed is comfy, and the whole place is always kept super clean. Having laundry on site is convenient for longer stays. We bring our bicycles down and ride out to Waitsburg in the mornings - a nice ride, about 60kms return, and we only ever see about a dozen cars once we're on Lower Waitsburg Rd. Make sure you check out Brown's winery in town if you are there on the last Thursday of the month... they have a movie night that is not to be missed. If you are there in summer season you can go catch a Walla Walla Sweets baseball game (so fun!).

Owners are always helpful. Wifi is free and reliable.

No downsides to this place at all!
