We are three long-time friends who have worked together, traveled together and celebrated life's journey together. We love to cook and drink good wine, especially when shared with family and friends. Casa Cavatappi has become our perfect home to indulge these passions

Why Linda Smeins/Richard Bulcroft chose Walla Walla

We are wine lovers who have been coming to Walla Walla for the past twenty years, and we continue to enjoy the town's unique blend of casual friendliness, 'down home' character and sophistication. After one memorable visit, when we did not want to go home, we began to look for the perfect home away from home so that we could spend more time here. Having found it, we decided to to share our love and knowledge of this wonderful place with others who appreciate good food and wine. Life in Walla Walla is a blend of casual friendliness, 'down home' and sophistication.

What makes this house unique

The character of the home preserves a way of life; it is about taking time and enjoying life fully.

Lovely spot for friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here, joined for meals by our college daughter and friends - all ready for home cooked food after dining hall fare. Great kitchen well stocked with supplies and equipment made cooking for hungry kids a pleasure. Spacious living space encouraged the kids to linger in front of the fire and play games - much to the parents' delight. Beds were comfortable, water hot and plentiful, spaces clean and well maintained. So much so that we stayed an extra night. We definitely recommend this lovely spot! And we will be back!

Quaint Updated Home with lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities and great location! We enjoyed the common areas for playing cards and having meals. The older home has all the charm of its age (wooden floors and detail) and all the updates of convenience (new kitchen and baths). Darling porch and within walking distance to downtown.

Linda and partners. Thanks for the opportunity to share your home. It is beautiful and well suited for a large group . It accommodated our family nicely. Appreciated the opportunity to check in a bit early and leave a bit later. We had a great weekend and hope to rent again next year!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The back yard was shady and a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon glass of wine.

The location was great, only about a mile from the heart of town where we enjoyed numerous great restaurants and tasting rooms. We would definitely stay here again if visiting Walla Walla in the future.
