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.

Charming well furnished home with awesome kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Richard are very good about replying to all my questions and concerns months before my arrival. They were accommodating to my changes. The house was super clean and have great hardwood floors with the expanding dining room table. We enjoy cooking in the kitchen which is well accessorized. This is truly a loved home and cared for by the owners. It was like traveling to my home away from my home with all small items you would have at your home. Thank you to you and your staff for maintaining such a lovely home.

Delightful home for a Walla Walla visit

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples who spent 3 nights in mid May on a wine tasting trip. The house interior has been updated but retains a charming craftsman style; that plus the comfortably furnishings made it a pleasant place to relax after a hard day of wine tasting. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked with dishes, utensils, and supplies, and we enjoyed fixing dinner there every night. Air conditioning was much appreciated as several days were unseasonably hot. The welcoming bottle WW Syrah was so good, that we went down to Saviah to buy more. Walking into the center of town along Palouse Street takes about 15 minutes and affords great views of grand old mansions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks for sharing your home.

My book group loved it

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay the house has a lot of character. The only thing was one of the bar stools bench was loose and the downstairs shower head was not attached which made for some interesting washing of the hair. The deck was absolutely fabulous and the walk to town was delightful and very do able. There were beds for everyone and we loved how well the kitchen was stocked. We will be back!!

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.
