We travelled with friends to Walla Walla from Portland for a short wine country getaway at the end of September, 2008. We particularly wanted to stay at this property based on personal recommendations of others. We were forced into Sunday and Monday nights even though booking months in advance since it is very popular and they have only 4 rooms.
The winery was not open to the public, it was the start of harvest and the weather was perfect. The staff is excellent but it's very low key. The old farm has had all of its building well restored, with two being turned into guest rooms, and with two more in another building that houses the inn office. The Bunk House, where we stayhed, was charning, with a view of the vineyards and winery, front & rear sitting areas, a well-equipped (full kitchen) and in very good condition.
Breakfast is included and was excellent and ample both days we were there. We met the owners (who live in a large older house on site) and they were cordial. A bottle of wine was complimentary in our room.
Being about 8 miles east of Walla Walla, bordered by wheat fileds, it is a beautiful getaway if you don't mind the short drive to town. There are 37 acres, including a creek with a hammock nearby, and a large garden, to explore.
