Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 26, 2016
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 to rent downtown 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!

Great dog friendly premium cottage

  • 5 of 5

Megan and her family put together an awesome upscale 5-star 2-bedroom cottage in a very nice area of Walla Walla. Sharing the same lot as her home, your own cottage feels very seperate with very nice landscaping providing privacy. Within 1 down the road you pass by scenic vineyards and tasting rooms for a great run or walk. Our two dogs loved the space and after a long day of driving we also enjoyed the most comfortable leather furniture and king sized bed. If you are looking for a very well appointed cottage in a location that is close to everything this is the place.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Megan and her beautiful family couldn't have been more gracious to my 4 friends and I as she welcomed us to our annual retreat of 20 plus years. This beautifully renovated barn was so cozy and perfect for our wine tasting and sometimes just hang out in our pajamas kind of adventure. The cozy fire pit was a welcomed conversation center for our barbecue outdoors. I would highly recommend "The Barn" for family or friends! Thanks Megan! You are awesome!

Wonderful Christmas business trip/ vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was at The Barn for a business trip for a length of 13 weeks. The barn was very clean and extremely comfortable. It would be perfect for two couples to stay there. It is within walking distance of several wineries (1 to 2 miles). The walk would be fun with another couple or your friend after a few glasses of wine. The barn is located behind the owner's home, however, there is a lot of privacy. The owners are very nice, and respect your space and privacy. The Barn is less than 5 minutes from town, however if you like to cook, everything you need (plates, cups, pots and pans) is in the barn. The owners provide the toilet paper, soap, paper towels, ect. needed for a weekend stay.

I plan to return to Walla Walla, and when I do, I will be calling this same place FIRST.

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!

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.
