Built in 1909, the distinctive and intimate Green Gables Inn envelops guests within the comfortable confines of five elegant rooms, nestled among serene, tree-lined streets. Each potential slumber-party destination has flat-screen, cable-equipped TVs, wireless Internet, and a mini refrigerator for keeping computers and TVs ice cold, and select chambers feature gas fireplaces, claw-foot tubs, antique furnishings, and private balconies. All temporary tenants can awaken stomachs with a complimentary continental breakfast, including yogurt, granola, and pastries, offered 7 a.m.–9 a.m. daily.
Then, starting at 9 a.m., Green Gables' chef handcrafts hot meals to quell cavernous appetites, offering a changing menu of favorites with a variety of scrumptious sides. Minutes away from fine dining, local events and attractions, wineries, and Whitman College, Green Gables gifts guests a prime locale for a weekend getaway or a night of observing mountains in mating season.
- On a quiet, shady street, this large 1909 home, with its three big front gables, is only a block from the Whitman College campus, which makes it a good choice if you are here on college business or to visit your kids. Two sitting rooms downstairs are furnished with antiques and have fireplaces at each end that make it quite cozy on a chilly evening. ¬– Frommer's
