2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private Cottage Surrounded by Garden Oasis
About Gay Ernst
We're both Washingtonians: Gay grew up in Walla Walla, and Chuck in Longview. After fulfilling careers, we both are now retired from the boardroom. We're not retired from work, though, as we spend nearly all our time--spring through fall--in our 2.5 acre, tree, shrub, flower and vegetable gardens.
Why Gay Ernst chose Walla Walla
Gay's parents purchased this 5-acre parcel in 1971. It was used originally as horse pasture. In 2003, we had our home built on the property. In 2014, we had the Cottage built, which we now offer to guests as a tucked-away-in-a-beautiful-garden vacation rental.
What makes this House unique
The views out every window are gorgeous, for they all look upon the gardens. The house and the grounds are immaculate. Outdoor seating areas are numerous and relaxing. If you're looking for comfort, coziness, privacy, security and beauty, the Cottage @ Garrison Gardens is for you!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The property is very private and the grounds are beautiful. The only thing I would suggest is to bring your own pillow if you require extra support. However everything was tip top and great!

Stunningly Beautiful Cottage
Words cannot express how amazing this cottage was. So cute and clean with everything you might ever need to the smallest details in the cottage. So comfortable and cozy. Looks like a model home inside and out. The grounds are incredibly beautiful. So amazingly landscaped and kept up. A garden everywhere you look. I cannot recommend this more. The absolute perfect place to stay in Walla Walla.
Pictures don’t do justice to what a lovely space this is...
Property immaculate, beautifully situated, well equipped, and completely comfortable. Would absolutely stay again
Thanks so much for your complimentary review of Cottage @ Garrison Gardens. So glad you enjoyed your stay, and please do come stay with us again! Best-Gay Ernst
We loved our three day (Memorial Day weekend) stay at the Cottage. This was our first real visit to Walla Walla and the cottage was perfect for our needs. VERY quiet with well manicured and interesting grounds. The cottage had everything we needed and more. Beds were comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. Best of all, it’s well situated and close to everything; highway 12 is just a minute or two away. Everything in Walla Walla was close and downtown was easily accessible.
For those liking early morning walks/exercise, the Mill Creek Trail runs right behind the sports complex and is a paved trail that runs for quite some distance. You can access the trail from the street (look for the signs). Easy to walk to. Mr. Eds has a great breakfast and is not far from the trail as well.
We had zero issues during our stay and will stay here again during our next visit if available.
Cottage @ Garrison Creek is less than a 5-minute walk to the Mill Creek Sports Complex, and a scenic, 15-minute walk along Mill Creek to Bennington Lake. Bike paths and walking paths are also just a few minutes walk away. The Cottage is very close to Walla Walla Community College campus. Guests can walk there in less than 10 minutes.
