Green Gables Inn
Green Gables Inn
"We were on a tour of the historic homes of Walla Walla and Green Gables Inn was a stop on
our itinerary. Pick me up in a couple of days, I said to my companions, as soon as we stepped
across the threshold. I very much would have liked to stay on, to peruse the old books in the
book selves, to soak in a claw-footed tub, to sink into cloudlike bedding, to sit in front of a
crackling fireplace, to pretend it was 1909" Lorry Patton.
Green Gables Inn had many uses over the years. It was built in 1909 for Rowland Hugh and
Clarinda Green Smith on homestead land owned by Clarinda's parents, William O. and Mary
Green, early residents of the area. It remained a private home until 1978, at which time it
opened as a home for nurses. In 1990, Jim and Margaret Buchan purchased the historic home
and carefully converted it to a luxurious bed and breakfast inn.
Names of the five bedrooms are adopted from the L.M. Montgomery book, "Anne of Green
Gables." and uniquely decorated with antique furniture, restful accessories, personalized bath
amenities, fluffy terry bathrobes, candy and seasonal fresh flowers.
