This B&B is in an ideal beachfront location on Hudson Point, near restaurants and a marina and within easy walking distance of Port Townsend's historic main streets. All the rooms are clean and comfortable and three of them (the Lighthouse Suite, Island View Room, and Schooner Room) offer superb views. There's a spacious living room where excellent gourmet breakfasts are... More

Relax in the adirondack chairs looking out over the water with the mountains in the background. We watched sea gulls and then to our delight noticed a bald eagle - magnificent. The B&B is welcoming, cozy and with delightful hosts! Port Townsend is a great little town - a variety of restaurants and shops to peruse while strolling through the... More

Wonderful place. Jim and Gail are unbelievably kind and friendly, willing to help anybody with anything. The inn is perfectly situated for exploring Port Townsend, with beautiful views. A nice, relaxing getaway. Hope I get to come back!

What a wonderful first night to start our week trip to the Seattle WA area. This was my husband's first B&B experience and Jim and Gail have now set a high bar. The room was comfortable and so quiet. Loved hearing nothing but the gentle waves, an occassional sea bird and the fog horn of the ferry in the morning.... More

My sister and I had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Breakfasts were delicious with good variety over the four days, and the house was warm and inviting. Gail and Jim checked in on us regularly to ensure we had all we needed.

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay just a couple of blocks from downtown, I highly recommend this. Jim and Gail were happy to share their recommendations on where to spend our time while in Pt. Townsend. The room was comfortable and the views across the water were incredible.

My sister and I stayed one night here in a very comfortable bed in the cute Schooner room. Gail was very accommodating as we came later than we had anticipated. I gave her a call to let her know and she was very gracious. She even upgraded our room from the one we booked (Sunflower room) to the Schooner with... More

Jim, the innkeeper, was an absolute delight and very welcoming. He made us feel right at home the minute we got there. The house is full of history and stories, and Jim had a wealth of knowledge about the whole area. The porch faced an amazing view of the Strait and the mountains. It was so peaceful to swing out...

We recently spent three nights at the Commander's Beach House. We were a bit apprehensive at first as we usually stay in hotels, but we really enjoyed our stay! Jim and Gail were very warm and welcoming. They have created a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere in their house by the sea. The bed was very comfortable, and the breakfasts were delicious.... More
