“Great country retreat”
Reviewed 29 October 2008

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.

This is one of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed. We were in the Bunkhouse, which was adorable, but it did have a slightly odd odor. We never figured out what it was, I suspect it was just due to the age of the building. However, that nice big bathtub made up for it (and the tilework around the bathroom mirror was really lovely). If we stay there again, we'd choose one of the larger cottages that have cable TV, just because we'd been away from TV for several days, and would have liked to have been able to watch one national newscast. We'd driven in from Yakima and didn't really feel like going out for dinner that night. So we picked up a surprisingly good chicken Caesar salad, a couple of pears, and a fresh baguette from the local Safeway, and shared a bottle of wine on the brick patio behind the Bunkhouse. It was wonderful! And thanks to the innkeepers for stocking decent wine glasses, it made our to-go dinner much more enjoyable. We also met a very sweet tortoiseshell cat, but we can't remember her name. I was fortunate enough to get several photographs of the sun setting over the vineyard outside our back door. It was very warm that night, but we kept the bedroom windows open and slept quite well. Breakfast was served in what I think is the winery tasting room, which was gorgeous. All I remember was eating sweet pineapple and Rainier cherries in an open-beamed room, while sipping smooth, rich coffee. I wish we could have spent more time there, not only on the Abeja winery grounds, but exploring the many wineries in Walla Walla.

This is unquestionably one of the best lodgings we have ever stayed in. We stayed two nights in the Locust suite. This beautifully furnished 840 sq ft unit was worthy of being a second home. The attention to detail is amazing. The owners seemed to spare no expense to refurbish some old farm buildings to create an upscale special occasion place that should satisfy even the most demanding clientele. This property is about 10 minutes from downtown Walla Walla on its own acreage with an electronic gate ensuring privacy. As you would expect, the breakfasts are terrific.
