Large group in town for a funeral

Can anyone suggest housing options for us. We have a large extended family of about 35 people going to Walla Walla for a funeral the last weekend in September. There are all ages including small children. I'd like for us to all be in the same place, but if not, a few different homes would work too. I have looked at the 3 vacation homes listed in Trip Advisor and they are all full. Any suggestions? Maybe slightly outside of town? Thank you.

Thank you. It seems to be a busy weekend. We'll keep looking. Are there other towns close by that may have something? We don't need anything fancy, just a place to be together. The burial is in Walla Walla, so the closer the better.

We ended up staying at Super 8, which I thought would be a little run down, but they were nice. Staff was friendly. They let us use the breakfast room for a gathering one evening and the pool was wonderful. I'd hoped for a few houses, but this worked out. Also the churches were so helpful. We found the Presbyterian pastor to do the service, and his church was booked so the Methodist church down the road let us use their building. It was nice to have such collaboration between churches. We had a wonderfultime in Walla Walla.

Lisa glad it worked out for you. People on the east side of the Cascades are known for their friendliness and helpfulness not that the people on the west side aren't but it's just a bit different.
