Jim and Gail are the most incredible hosts! They are so warm and welcoming that it really feels like you are staying with friends and by the end of our stay, that is what they are. We are fortunate that they had a room available. The house has a great history and even though there were other guests, it was very quiet and private. It is a great location right on the water with great views across the water to both Vancouver Island and Whidbey Island. Watch the ships and ferries sail by. There are long walks down the beach that is right outside the house and a short walk into town for the shops, restaurants, and theater - the Rose Theater is a classic. The breakfast was always delicious and very filling. We highly recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Commander's Beach House is the only bed and breakfast that is located right on the water in downtown Port Townsend. You can walk on the beach to Fort Worden or easily stroll three blocks along the water front to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. Three of our rooms face the water and have private baths. Our fourth room faces the garden and has a shared bath located inside of the room. You can enjoy views of Admiralty Inlet, Mt. Baker, Whidbey Island, all of the boats and ships that go into Seattle, as well as vintage wooden schooners and yawls. Eagles, herons, otters and seals are frequently seen by our guests. A full sit down gourmet breakfast is served at individual tables or on our veranda, weather permitting. Come fall asleep lulled by the sounds of the sea and "relax and solve nothing"! ... more less
