Spent 3 nights in this B&B while enjoying Vintage Walla Walla, a fun wine event held annually. Penny was a most accommodating and gracious host. The queen bed was extremely comfortable and dressed in quality linens with a featherbed and down comforter and down pillows. The en suite bathroom had a great tiled shower with fluffy towels and nice bath products. The fresh daily rose from Penny's garden was a nice and appreciated touch. With all those positives, I would have to complain that the tiny sitting room had no comfortable place to sit and read and was dark. There were no drawers, so we had to leave our suitcases out and the small wardrobe which stood in for a missing closet was not very convenient. A few changes in the furnishings and lighting could make this a much more comfortable place to stay. That said, the downstairs living room with fireplace was lovely and we probably could have used that. The location (a block off the Whitman College campus and 4-5 blocks from downtown) was fabulous and in a sweet, tree-lined neighborhood.
