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

When the front door opened and we were greeted before we even made it to the front porch, I know we were in for a special weekend. The views from the porch, living room, and our bedroom of the water and distant mountains were amazing. Each morning we awoke and watched the beautiful sunrise and the changing colors of the...

Jim and Gail are wonderful hosts. The setting is ideal, and the weather for our two day stay couldn't have been better. Beautiful sunsets from the porch. Clear nights from this location were perfect for star gazing. Take the cushion and a blanket from the porch and watch the sun come up, as we did, from the wooden swing not... More

Called the day before and got a room. Check their website; there was a huge discount available. Jim and Gail were welcoming and unobtrusive hosts. Sunset and evening views over the straits and to the East were beautiful; very comfortable bed and quiet sitting room downstairs. Lots of curiosities to look at and enjoy. Only downside is common to most... More

So it was getting late, didn't want to drive home in the rain. Happened to see a Vacancy sign. Found out there was a vacancy and we decided to stay. Very happy we found them. Wonderful old home on the beach. Walking distance to downtown Port Townsend. The room was very nice. Great views. Breakfast was excellent. Very quiet at... More

We enjoyed our two days at the Beach House. We planed to drive up to the park, however just ended up staying in town and enjoying walking around the main street. Gail and Jim are very hospitable and breakfast was very nice, including the coffee. It is the best view in town!

What a spectacular location these folks have: views views views of the water, and a perfect, short walk into downtown. Jim and Gail are gracious and low-key, and they set exactly the right vibe for either the road-weary sojourner or the percolating enthusiast. Their dog is pretty cute, too.

This past year we had our wedding at the Commander’s Beach House and it was the most wonderful and magical event. The owner’s Jim and Gail were absolutely fabulous. Not only were they super easy to work with they made sure their beautiful bed and breakfast was ready for our event. Situated right by the beach with the beautiful grounds... More

What a great little find! The Commander's Beach House is a comfy old home located on the beach near the marina, making convenient access to all of the downtown businesses while giving the feeling of getting away from it all. Upon arrival, we were informed that we had the house to ourselves and were treated to a free room upgrade.... More
