Having return guests is the highest compliment for an Innkeeper. When guests from Portland checked in for Autumn Release Weekend after having been here five times previously I was eager to hear their plans. They do a lot of internet research and know which wineries they will visit and between us have made dinner reservations for the 3 nights. They reported each morning at breakfast what a good time they had had and what good food and great wine they had enjoyed. They really make the most of the 3 days visiting 4 to 5 wineries each day and dining each evening at one of our fabulous restaurants, again enjoying a bottle of local wine.
They are morning walkers and made their way to Main Street before breakfast to purchase a few goodies (Bear Claws, etc) from Walla Walla Bread Company to take back home and prolong the week-end. They travel extensively so I feel especially flattered they have made reservations for next year.
Thank you Walla Walla wineries, restaurants, shop keepers and residents for making Walla Walla such a wonderful experience for our guests.
