**Officially Licensed Vacation Rental**

Welcome to the Liberty Bungalow! We are proud to present our lovely, comfortable, and well-appointed vacation rental, right in downtown Walla Walla.

THE ROOMS…

One of our goals for creating a unique vacation rental was to offer a variety of experiences within the rooms of the home. We converted the lion’s share of the garage into a home theater complete with a 70” TV, recliners, indirect lighting, hundreds of DVDs and an excellent surround sound system. We paid special attention to acoustics and sound insulation (there’s even an insulated exterior-grade door) so the theater wouldn’t disturb the rest of the house.

We wanted to make the living room a fresh and inviting space perfect for relaxation. We chose colors and materials that are vibrant yet serene. There are comfy ergonomic chairs and a huge picture window for occasional people-watching, and a desk and computer (another source for streaming music or movies, if desired).

Around the corner from the living room is our lovely kitchen and dining area. We built in separate space for coffee, tea, and wine – you can spend a morning watching birds out the back window, in the shadow of the Marcus Whitman Hotel. The full-scale kitchen makes you feel right at home with all the amenities you need to dine in.

A bright and cheerful hallway entices with a huge historic map of Walla Walla and interesting memorabilia – see how many historic places you can find just mere blocks away.

At the end of our “historic hallway” is the master bedroom, which offers a warm and inviting array of colors and materials, including a comfortable Queen bed and cozy chair and ottoman. The master bedroom has a 32” TV with cable, and a smart blu-ray DVD player as well. And there’s plenty of storage with the built-in closet and drawers.

We’ve named the second bedroom the “Library” because it features fully-stocked bookshelves (as well as many board games), and because it offers you yet another unique atmosphere. The built-in headboard anchors the generous Queen bed, while a quaint reading chair and lots of mood-lighting are perfect for a pleasant afternoon with a good book.

The bathroom features fresh soft towels, a full tub/shower combo with new fixtures, and a dual-flush toilet! We’ve designed the bathroom to be bright and airy, with a large glass-block window that shines on a vivid color palette and a shiny white shower surround.

THE EXPERIENCE...

There are so many ways to revel in your stay at the Liberty Bungalow. Start your day with a cup of coffee in the bamboo-fenced backyard. Then hit the town (on foot!) for brunch at Bacon and Eggs (for the savory lovers) or Maple Counter Café (for the huge waffle breakfast lovers). Check out the local merchants like Main Street Furniture Company or Book & Game – from spring to late summer, wander over to the popular Farmers’ Market on 4th and Main. Come back and fire up the backyard BBQ! There’s plenty of room to enjoy a meal outside, or in the kitchen dining area, or even in the theater (TV trays and all!). Later, you can kick back with a bottle of wine and enjoy a high-def movie in a movie theater-like setting, or curl up with a good book and cup of tea, or just relax in the living room.

Or…hit the town again (on foot!), and check out the pubs and wine-tasting rooms, or grab an ice cream cone at Bright’s on Main, or a coffee and dessert from the Colville Street Patisserie (amazing), right on the same street as the Liberty Bungalow.

THE TOWN…

As most people now know, Walla Walla is a wine destination. We love wine, too! And you couldn’t rent a vacation home closer to the myriad downtown tasting rooms than the Liberty Bungalow! Our in-wall wine rack is stocked with a complimentary bottle of local wine for your enjoyment. We are also coffee lovers, and we proudly furnish the Liberty Bungalow with our favorite coffee, freshly roasted at the Walla Walla Roastery – aptly- named the “Liberty Blend.”

A piece of Walla Walla history is just across the street, at the Kirkman House Museum, a lovingly restored 1880 home of a prominent local family. A block or two away is Whitehouse-Crawford (once a planning mill and furniture company, now a luxury restaurant) as well as the tallest building in town: the Marcus Whitman Hotel. The rest of downtown holds far too many fascinating buildings and stories to list here…luckily, you’re within walking distance of it all! A short drive puts you at Fort Walla Walla Museum, another goldmine of information about the Walla Walla Valley’s heritage and its people.

Beyond downtown, there are plenty of adventures for wine lovers (over 100 wineries call Walla Walla home) and history lovers alike, including nearby historic towns of Dayton, Waitsburg, and Milton-Freewater. Enjoy exceptional golf at Veteran’s Memorial Golf Course (less than a mile away) and Wine Valley Golf Course (about 10 minutes away).

Walla Walla is host to many art experiences all year long, from ever-changing local art on display, to top-notch plays and exceptional music – the Walla Walla Symphony is the longest continually operating symphony west of the Mississippi!

For more ideas on site-seeing in town, visit the Chamber of Commerce which is NEXT DOOR (entrance around the corner on Sumach St.)

About Corey and Brandon

Brothers Corey and Brandon, born and raised in beautiful Walla Walla. We purchased and remodeled this wonderful bungalow in 2014, and are excited to offer a comfortable and perfectly located destination that is right in the heart of what has made our beloved home town an attractive vacation experience.

THE SERVICE...

Customer service during your stay is our top priority. If there’s something you need, please let us know. Between the two of our families, we are always available to help with any questions you might have. We firmly believe that face-to-face customer service is great when it’s requested, but the appeal of vacation homes is self-sufficiency and privacy, which we strive to honor. That said, we are happy to assist you with anything you may need to the best of our ability. We hope your experience at the Liberty Bungalow will be truly unique, memorable and enjoyable.

Why Corey and Brandon chose Walla Walla

Excellent location, just a couple of blocks to everything historic downtown Walla Walla has to offer.

THE NAME …

We chose the name “Liberty” Bungalow because, as kids growing up in Walla Walla, we loved going to movies at the Liberty Theater on Main Street. The theater closed in August of 1985 (“Fright Night” was the last movie to play there, if you want a local factoid that is impossible to find online or in newspapers). Later after its official closing, it was lovingly restored - seating and sloped floor were covered, but not removed! - and became part of Macy’s department store. The building itself is also still intact – the lobby is nearly unchanged, with it’s beautiful staircase that leads up to a landing that hosts a display case detailing the Liberty Theater’s history. The building’s distinct architecture almost as glorious as in its heyday, sans the neon sign and marquee. Our vacation rental is only about 3 blocks from this historic landmark which is so dear to us, so we took the opportunity to pay homage to the Liberty Theater by using its name, as well as incorporating a general movie theme throughout the house. We even included a Liberty Theater DVD section featuring movies we saw at that theater!

What makes this house unique

Many aspects we think you will enjoy about staying at The Liberty Bungalow include: located in historic downtown; dozens of wine-tasting rooms, unique restaurants and shopping within blocks; centrally located for easy day trips in any direction to enjoy everything the Walla Walla Valley has to offer. Golfing, skiing, boating, fishing, hunting, cycling, parks, museums, historical landmarks....and much more!

Loved The Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

Brandon and Corey have thought of everything in their bungalow getaway and the location is perfect for walking to downtown wineries and restaurants. This home is very clean and it was very easy to settle in and feel at home. The beds are comfortable, the linens are good quality, and there were lots of amenities. We intend to stay here again in the future and would highly recommend it to others.

Adorable cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with friends for a wine tasting weekend. House is stylishly decorated, beds are comfy, and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. Home theater was a fun bonus. And, it's in a great location! Steps from downtown yet quiet. Would recommend this place to anyone I know.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This terrific cottage fit all our needs perfectly. Really clean and in brand new condition, the place could not have been more comfortable. The opportunity to leave the car and walk everywhere was a pure bonus.

Increadible!

  • 5 of 5

It's the best. Even has shampoo. Plan extra time to binge on movies in the home theater. The coffee station was much appreciated. Even has condiments and tea. Close to grocery store but also 2 blocks from downtown wineries and restaurants. We rented bikes instead of a car and it was an easy ride to everything. Even farther out wineries (other than intense heat). AC was a dream. Will stay again!!!
