The Purple House History

Take a trip back in time to a gentler, more gracious way of living with a stay at The Purple House Bed and Breakfast. This elegantly remodeled Queen Anne style mansion was built in 1882 by Dr. Pietrzycki, a Dayton pioneer physician and philanthropist.

Today, the Purple House weds modern-day comfort with the more relaxed culture of yesteryear. Situated on a quiet side street in Dayton, Washington, it is the crowning jewel in a town recognized as the gateway to the beautiful Blue Mountains, a favorite destination for hiking, skiing, hunting, and fixhing. Dayton is also a historical gem, boasting two complete districts on the National Historic Register and dozens of well-preserved Victorian homes.

Dr. Pietrzycki's home was a haven of culture and gracious living in the last century and that tradition is lovingly continued by the present owner, who adds the refinement of the European tradition in which she was raised. Prepare to be pampered with pleasant company, delightful surroundings, and unforgettable cooking. Your first stay at the Purple House will make it one of your favorite destinations.
