While Walla Walla's winemaking history dates back to the mid-1800s, only recently has this region become one of the country's premier wine destinations. For those who want an experience that incorporates history along with complimentary gourmet breakfasts daily, a stay at The Inn at Abeja is a must. This century-old farmstead in the foothills of the Blue Mountains boasts a collection of uniquely restored buildings, including the old Summer Kitchen, now a two-story cottage; the “Chicken Coop” with a private garden; and the Bunk House, which has been transformed into a quaint studio cottage. Each freestanding structure is its own private accommodation, while the spacious former horse-and-mule barn has been transformed into the winery, which specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon. A sense of solitude abounds on this 35-acre estate, leaving visitors to enjoy the area's serene beauty.
