Finding Hidden Gems for Lodging

Wesson Bunkhouse, Pullman WA, Worth a Visit

Location: Washington

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.


The front of the Bunkhouse

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 château.  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.


Hearty breakfast

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.
