Property description

Experience the artful blend of historical elegance and modern convenience at the James McCool House in Walla Walla, WA. Originally built in 1895 by James McCool, son to a Walla Walla founding father, the home has served as the residence of some of the area’s most prominent figures over the past 100 years. In 2010, the home was completely and carefully restored. The large stately rooms, with soaring ceilings and wood accents, welcome you to a warm and inviting environment.

This 'pet friendly' guest home has approximately 3,000 square feet of living space, including 5 bedrooms (including 2 master suites) and 3.5 bathrooms and sleeps up to 12. There is 1 California King, 1 King, 2 Queen, and 2 Twin Beds. Additionally, there is a Queen sized pull-out couch in the family room. This guest home is wonderful for large groups, especially those that want more privacy than offered at a hotel or B & B.

Eat-in kitchen has brand new appliances and opens into the formal dining room, which seats up to 12. Slide open the original cedar pocket doors and connect the family room to the formal dining room. Outdoors, the private landscaped backyard is the perfect setting for a relaxed barbeque with friends and family. Enjoy a glass of wine on the wraparound porch, and the second floor master bedroom balcony is the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee. Further, to help kick off the celebration, a complementary bottle of wine will be waiting for you upon your arrival!!

Centrally located, The James McCool House is only one mile from downtown wineries, shops, weekend Farmer's Market and Whitman College. Short drive from Stateline wineries & airport tasting rooms. Visitors won't find a better value for a wine country guest home than The James McCool House in Walla Walla! (in the Walla Walla, Napa Valley and Sonoma wine country areas.)

Ideal for wine country getaways, family reunions, holiday gatherings, corporate retreats, golfing, hunting or to simply enjoy the wonderful town of Walla Walla.

Walla Walla Vacation Rentals

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Tracy and her brother Chris discovered this wonderful, but neglected home in 2005. Though the home was showing its age of more than 100 years, the home's underlying grand and proud features were clearly evident. Drawing on Tracy’s passion for historic homes, her talents as a designer, and inspired by their late grandmother, the next several years were spent painstakingly bringing the house back to its stately origins, while making sure it was equipped with all of the present day conveniences. 'Our motto throughout the restoration was ‘quality takes time’, and we think its effects can be seen in the details throughout the home. Welcome to our home and the fantastic town of Walla Walla, Washington! '
