Eritage Resort Opens in Walla Walla
Eritage Resort is Walla Walla’s newest luxury destination. Set on 386 acres and surrounded by vineyards and wheat fields, it provides a unique setting for meeting and event planners.
“While only ten minutes from downtown Walla Walla,” says Deb Carter, Events Manager, “Eritage Resort feels miles away from the business world. It is a place of natural beauty, personalized service, and exceptional dining. The conference and meeting spaces provide all the necessary professional amenities within an inspirational setting, along with personalized service and exceptional dining.”
The resort features six meeting and event spaces. The 720-square-foot Private Dining Room is well suited for small banquets and conferences for up to 50 guests and includes a Smart TV for presentations. For additional outdoor space, the adjacent 2,340-square-foot Backyard Patio features a large outdoor fireplace and views of the Blue Mountains. A smaller conference room seats 12 and also includes a Smart TV. The Living Room and Bar is ideal for a small cocktail reception for 15 guests and the Eritage Dining Room for banquets up to 50. Next to Lake Sienna, the 24,000-square-foot Great Lawn accommodates 400 for a reception. Meeting amenities include WiFi, audiovisual capabilities, on-site catering, a full-service restaurant and parking.
“The Eritage events team is dedicated to providing an exceptional experience for every guest,” said Carter. “Our culinary team creates custom menus based on local and seasonal ingredients, and they can assist with wine tastings and pairings. We provide full concierge services for arranging floral and décor, audiovisual rentals, music transportation and more. We are singularly focused on providing an exceptional experience.”
Presently, there are ten luxury suites. Each has a private deck or patio with sweeping views of the landscape, a fireplace, seating area, soaking tub, and guests receive a complimentary continental breakfast. Ten additional villas are slated to open in the spring of 2019. Resort amenities include WiFi, in-room massage services, a lake, pool and an on-site restaurant managed by James Beard Award-winner Chef Jason Wilson.
For team-building or after-event activities, area attractions include wine tastings, wine tours, golfing, hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, museums and performance arts including the Walla Walla Symphony. Eritage Resort is minutes away from Walla Walla Regional Airport, three hours from Spokane International Airport and four hours from airports in Seattle and Portland.
