Before our cycling adventure gets too far in the rearview mirror, I wanted to write a blog about the best Bed and Breakfast we stayed in during our cycling odyssey.
Admittedly all of our accommodations on our 347 mile, nine-day trip were good. ¬†No complaints about any of them. ¬†But one in particular really stood out and if you are traveling through the Pullman area I can’t recommend it high enough.
Carla and Rich Wesson have spent the better part of a decade turning their beautiful little homestead into a secluded, rural and relaxing destination, only minutes from downtown Pullman.
The couple single-handedly built the bunk house (where we stayed) and the barn house (an apartment that sleeps four),
driving every nail, laying every piece of tile and creating a home away from home comfort ch√Ęteau. ¬†The attention to detail is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in all my travels. ¬†Beautiful woodwork highlights the bunk house inside, and spectacular gardens surround it on the outside. ¬†Wildlife and birds are abundant in the peaceful setting.
And then there is the hospitality. ¬†Rich and Carla love getting to know their guests and we enjoyed great conversation over the delicious breakfast each morning. ¬†Carla’s homemade fruit galette, omelettes, pancakes as well as locally sourced fruit, yogurt and sausage provided us the start to our day for cycling.
Rates are very reasonable (we paid $140 per night) and although they are often booked ahead
for football and Mom’s Weekend at WSU the rates for those weekends are also very good. ¬†We would stay here again in a heartbeat – in fact I am sure we will visit again someday. ¬†I now consider Rich and Carla friends. ¬†I’ve never said that about any Bed & Breakfast I have stayed in.
Consider a trip to this beautiful region, maybe at a time of year that isn’t overrun with Cougar football fans, and enjoy the serenity of the Wesson Bunkhouse, and the hospitality of Rich and Carla. ¬†We sure did.
