Property description

The Haven is a 100 year-old home on Pearson Street, in a beautiful historic neighborhood several blocks from Whitman College and Main Street in Walla Walla.

The Haven was set up in 2006 specifically as a nightly rental. It is a distinctive comfortable place for family and friends - perfect for those that drink fine wine, handcrafted beer, and specialty cocktails. Relax and enjoy the patio with Jacuzzi hot tub - perfect for sunning and lounging in your private backyard.

This well-maintained and updated (3 plus bedroom/ 2.5 bathroom) home has distinct architectural features including Victorian fish-scale shingle siding, spacious front veranda, and second story sleeping porch.

It is designed to provide the ideal Walla Walla experience for families and friends - wine clubs, girlfriend getaways, bachelorette weekends, bookclubs, reunions, cycling groups, golf weekends.

Don't miss your weekend morning walk to Main Street for the Farmer's Market. For an outing to town to shop, wine taste, or have dinner, take our two-seater pedal surrey. Or take the surrey to one of the local parks and use our picnic supplies for a relaxing Saturday afternoon.

For a quiet evening at The Haven, utilize our Bose home theater system with 50-inch TV. HD cable channels, current and classic dvd's are available. Select a CD from our library or just plug in your iPod to fill The Haven with music. A vintage piano is also available for your enjoyment. Local and regional publications, as well as recommendations for dining, shopping, and touring is provided. Be sure to check out the assortment of books and our collection of family favorite board games.

Enjoy our various entertaining spaces which can accommodate gatherings such as cocktail parties, wine tastings, barbeques, and family feasts. Shake up a martini at our free-standing bar or utilize our distinctive serviceware and place settings and sit down for an elegant dinner.

Have a casual meal on the front veranda or in the backyard. Help yourself to what is in the pantry and fresh ingredients from our seasonal culinary garden and use the gas bbq. Lounge about the Jacuzzi Hot Tub and soak up the sun by day and head back into the spa for special star gazing at night.

At the end of the day, sleep comfortably on our pillow-top beds with quality linens - King, Queen, Full, and two twins.

The Haven is an ideal opportunity for wine enthusiasts wanting to learn more about the Walla Walla appellation! Customized tours, tastings, and unique events available for Haven guests.

Proximity to Whitman College makes The Haven ideal for inviting your student's roommates and fellow Whitties over for a home-cooked meal.

The Haven can also be used for the day or evening as a corporate retreat. We can assist you with meetings and seminars held at this unique location. Additionally, catering services are available when entertaining clients at The Haven.

About the owner: The Haven is part of Haven Walla Walla, Inc. - a tourism, lodging and marketing business in Walla Walla, Washington. I love the growth of tourism in town and enjoy assisting guests to make sure they have the best possible experience in our valley. I also consult with businesses in strategic planning and marketing. I hope you can join in the fun! Check out my blog - Life in Walla Walla -Sue Bicknell

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.
