Why the Owner Chose Walla Walla, WA, USA:
The Haven is steps away from Whitman College and Main Street in Walla Walla, WA. Guests enjoy a stroll along the creek through campus to get to the downtown core of Walla Walla. More and more wineries have opened tasting rooms downtown, making the location of the house ideal for a safe walk home. The historic neighborhood of 100 year old homes, tree lined streets, and local parks make a perfect place to walk or ride bicycles.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Haven was one of the first vacation homes in Walla Walla. Of all the properties now available, guests say it is in the perfect location - a beautiful neighborhood and easy access to downtown. One activity that our guests have really enjoyed is a private wine tasting at the house. We also offer winery and restaurant recommendations and at the house we have a collection of brochures of local activities. Read the sampling of guest comments for a first-hand account of memorable experiences at The Haven.
