For a two-night stay, our party six enjoyed the excellent accommodations, the splendid breakfast, the freshly baked cookies and the service and pleasant company of Penny, the owner and hostess. Maxwell House occupies a spot very near Whitman College in one of Walla Walla's three fine historic neighborhoods, within walking distance of a fine historic park. It would be hard... More

Penny is the consummate hostess. Her breakfasts are the best we have had at any B and B. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The house is perfectly located close to the college and downtown. it's also very easy to get to all the wineries, which is what we enjoyed during our stay.

Our eight wine group members took over The Maxwell House for a weekend of biking, shopping, eating, walking and wine tasting. Penny is truly a gem of a hostess!! We were greeted with freshly baked cookies and, after a tour, received the "keys to the kingdom." Literally! As the first to arrive, my friend and I were given the key... More

We frequently go to Walla Walla for wine tasting and general relaxation. While there are several wonderful bed and breakfasts in Walla Walla, The Maxwell House is now our favorite. Penny, the owner, is a very gracious hostess. The 110 year old mansion has been tenderly cared for and restored. Penny's breakfasts were delicious and the chocolate chip cookies in... More

We stayed 3 days at the Maxwell House B & B while on a wine tasting tour of the Walla Walla area. Penny, the owner operator could not have been any more hospitable and friendly. She was very flexible with our excessively late check in greeting us with a smile. The food was outstanding and served when she said it... More

This was our first trip to Walla Walla, and we stayed two nights at the Maxwell House. Absolutely adorable little B&B, Penny is the hostess with the mostess, and the food was incredible. I stay at B&Bs frequently, and this left nothing to be desired. Our room ("Clearly Crystal") was just perfect - beautiful decor, super comfy bed, bathroom was... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Maxwell House mid September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is a well restored early 1900's home very close to Whitman College and just a few blocks from the heart of down town Walla Walla. Our room, the ravishing Rose was surprisingly roomy, and most importantly to us, the bed... More

When we headed to Walla Walla for a short respite and get away, we had no idea we would have as much relaxation and enjoyment! We went on a whim and called on our way to make reservations, realizing it was after the Labor Day rush. We are so very thankful we found Maxwell House. Penny greeted us at the... More

What a nice find this B&B was. My wife, Peggy, and I wanted to return to Walla Walla for my birthday celebration. We had not stayed at a B&B in Walla Walla before and decided to give it a try. The Maxwell House could not have been nicer for us. We love to walk, and its location next to Whitman... More

When most people think of Maxwell House, they think of coffee, and not very good coffee at that. From now on when I think about Maxwell House I'll think of the wonderful little B&B Nancy and I stayed at in Walla Walla, Washington this weekend. Located in the center of the Whitman College community and a few short blocks from... More
