Updated: Sep 30, 2014
Peaceful Countryside Retreat; Bike Or Walk To Top Wineries

The Barn is named for what were once horse stalls and hay lofts. It is a classy restored barn that has been transformed into a beautiful guest cottage. The Barn provides you with all you need to stay for the weekend, a week or even a month. It comfortably accommodates 4-5 guests. The downstairs incorporates a comfortable living room and dining banquette complete with a farmhouse bench perfect for relaxing, reading, watching tv and dining. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to use with stainless appliances, gas range, apron front sink, rustic concrete countertops, open shelving and lastly great coffee! The master bedroom includes a king bed with cozy linens and goose-down filled duvets. The loft is its own private retreat, complete with queen bed dressed in top-of-line linens. The main bath has a rustic tumbled stone walk-in shower and spa quality towels. One of our favorite parts of the Barn is the large private patio where you can BBQ on your own gas grill and converse with family and friends while sitting around the spacious outdoor table and fire pit. Bikes are available and we highly recommend you use to visit the local wineries and enjoy the picturesque country side. Even with the country setting, you are just 3 miles away from downtown.

About the Owner

Jeff and Megan Holbrook purchased their property in 2005. Megan knew instantly that the pony barn on the back acre would make an amazing guest cottage. Jeff is a Concrete and Excavation Contractor and applied his skills and hard work to make the dream a reality. The Barn construction was complete in Spring 2013'. Megan is a Registered Dental Hygienist whose love for design and meeting new people has made the Barn a true ' home away from home.' Their most treasured successes are their two beautiful children, Callee and Trace, and a silly Dog named Lexi who loves to greet the guests as they arrive. They also enjoy camping, riding dirt bikes, running and just being together. Life to them is about following dreams and believing they will come true.. And it has!

Amazing, wonderful, perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Hello Fellow Travelers!

I was lucky enough to stay at "The Barn" for a month! It was a perfect place to stay and the owners were great to work with.

First off, the owners are extremely easy to communicate with, a huge plus!

The Barn itself surpassed my expectations. The decorations are perfect and thought out down to the mason jar cups with red and white stripped straws, the cushioned mat to stand on while in the kitchen, the basket of extra bath supplies in case you forgot anything. The mattress on the bed is very comfortable, and comes with lots of real pillows. I say real b/c I have stayed in so many hotel rooms that only come with square pillows. I love a good pillow. The shower is amazing, I want to go back just to shower there again. If you are there long enough to use the appliances you will love them, they are all perfect.

The entire house looks like it should be showcased on Apartment Therapy, Houzz, or any other major design blog.

Meghan welcomed me with chocolates and notes in the house! The house also comes with a book of recommendations, notes about the home, books on wine, magazines etc.

Every detail is perfectly thought out. I highly recommend staying at The Barn, you will get a true Walla Walla experience. I have also stayed at a handful of hotels including the Marcus Whitman which is very night but The Barn really gives the full charm of being in Walla Walla.

Rustic Elegance in a Cozy, Modern Package

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in many VRBO properties and The Barn is among the top on our list. Megan and Jeff put a lot of love in the details of this barn and it shows--from the well appointed modern kitchen, to the spa like bathroom and the incredibly comfortable master bedroom. The bed is heavenly! There's plenty of room to relax, even with our two sons (ages 23 and 17) who joined us on this trip. Every space in The Barn is very clean and has everything you need. The Barn sits off a quite country road, yet it's centrally located to many of the wineries & downtown Walla Walla.

Megan and her family are amazing hosts. We arrived very late our first night due to storms over the pass. She had treats and wine waiting for us, a welcome note and some great information for our son who is planning on working in the wine industry. So thoughtful and kind! I highly recommend The Barn for your stay in Walla Walla!

THE BARN :: A MUST!

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible experience staying at Jeff and Megan's "The Barn" ~ first time to Walla Walla and I must say, an wonderful place to stay! Megan greeted us with a welcome sign, wine, chocolate and nut platter. The detail at the barn is so gorgeous! Can't wait to stay there again! We all especially enjoyed our surprise visitors when we were sitting outside by the fire.... Bobby and Bandie. The two most friendly cats we have ever met! We highly recommend staying!! Thank you Megan ~ remember you can come decorate my house anytime! :)

Beautiful Barn

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to write and say what a fabulous time we had in the Barn! Even the photos didn't do this sweet space justice. Meg and family have created a lovely, well appointed, truly enjoyable place to stay. The kitchen has everything you need and more, the patio is perfect for drinking tea or coffee in the morning, and the bedrooms adorable. Also, I have to say this was THE MOST comfortable bed I've ever slept in (and I love my bed at home!). Meg's restaurant recommendations were spot on including Whitehouse Crawford, Brassiere Four, Bacon and Eggs and the Maple Counter Cafe. We tried them all and rolled all the way home! Thank you for creating such a lovely space and we will definitely be back!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
The barn is a true gem. It was a perfect escape for 2 couples, with a great location in one of the best wine areas of Walla Walla. We particularly were impressed with the quality of the barn - great attention to detail. After several various stays in the area, we can say that this was the best! We will definitely return in the future.

One word "Awesome"

Walla Walla is what I imagine Napa California looked like 75 years ago. It is a beautiful agricultural community with a blossoming wine industry.

I stayed with 4 of my friends at "The Barn" for a wedding that was held nearby. The surrounding area was beautiful and "The Barn" itself is absolutely amazing.

Jeff & Megan have created a great place to stay in Walla Walla. I wrote a review in their guest book telling them they have to change the name from "The Barn" to "The Chateau" because of the beautiful craftsmanship that went into this house. The shower here is the best shower I have ever seen, I want to copy it and install it in every house I ever own.

Jeff & Megan not only provided us a beautiful place to stay but they also were the most gracious of hosts. Five not-very-sober guys came back from the wedding to find ice cream sandwiches in the freezer!!!

WHAT??!!??!!?? --------> AWESOME

Location

From the Owner

When you drive down the lane to The Barn you instantly get a 'Wow' feeling. Our place is a casual country setting; very cozy and nestled among big pine trees. You will hear birds chirping, frogs croaking but not a rooster in the morning. It is an escape from reality of the daily grind. Every amenity is top quality, while the setting is perfectly simplistic and peaceful.
