Waitsburg cottage description

The Teahouse is a completely refurbished, century-old cottage, located on a very quiet, dead-end street – NOT on the main highway! It's just a short and pleasant stroll to Main Street, downtown Waitsburg. The cottage has been tastefully decorated in a gentle Asian style, on a half acre private fenced lot surrounded by mature pine trees. Very private, very quiet, very cozy!

Visitors to wine country will find it especially convenient to return to this relaxing, comfy home after a day of tasting. Here you may refresh and relax, and then walk to the best bar in eastern Washington, dine at a great southern food restaurant, or simply cook up a meal in your own kitchen with supplies from the nearby farmers' market and fromagerie. Our guests also receive a complementary bottle of wine – good wine! – for each night of their stay.

Summer days in here in the valley are sunny and quite warm. Summer evenings in Waitsburg are glorious, warm and dry. The night sky is filled with stars and there are very few insects. Spring and fall are quite beautiful, with daytime temperatures climbing into the 70s and 80s, and cooler evenings (bring layers!). The Teahouse is convenient to Walla Walla, yet a world apart, with no traffic (and no traffic lights!). Waitsburg is pedestrian-friendly and authentic. This is small town America at its best – like a trip back in time.

Custom wine tasting events and guidance on local wineries and restaurants are available from the owners, who live across the street and are intimately connected with the region's food and wine purveyors. Outdoor recreational activities abound. Bird watching can be done from the comfort of your patio – Waitsburg is on a major migration path for dozens of species. From April through November there are wine events, rodeos, vintage car shows, theatre and music festivals and many other outdoor activities happening throughout the region. The area is a haven for bicycle riding, hiking, antiquing, rafting, skiing, fly fishing, golf and just about any outdoor activity you can name.

Waitsburg is also the only town in Washington with its own camel. We'll give you walking directions and a bag of carrots to take when you go visit Izzie - a kids' favorite and a real sweetheart. You will never meet a gentler camel. Bottom line – we love this place; we live here year-round, and we are absolutely certain you won't want to leave once you've stayed here.

Please check the comments that some of our early visitors have left. And don't hesitate to write us with your questions. If we can do anything to make your visit to wine country more enjoyable, we are happy to oblige!
