Wonderful home, cozy, quiet, great breakfast, beautiful view, very comfortable bed, home and country interior and very welcoming hosts. It is right on the beach, opened the windows and the waves gently rocked us to sleep. We felt at home, it was hard to leave. Can't wait to come back.

It is an amazing place with beautiful views and very warm hosts. Jim and Gail were very hospitable and courteous. Jim is a funny guy, It took me a while to get his... More

Generous attentive hosts and a cozy room. We loved being on the water and so close to the maritime center. The decor is lovely, lots of beautiful bird prints. I loved the vegetarian breakfast our first morning. Thank you.

I stayed there while on a short road trip. This place did not disappoint. Very comfortable/cozy. more importantly, when I left, I felt warm and happy thanks to the great vibe from the place itself, the owners, and the fellow guests. Everything is in walking distance and water view hits the spot.

We had a great time. Breakfast was wonderful every morning with spectacular views of the beach and inlet. Our first morning we saw 2 eagles and a seal within about 200 yds of our table. Walking distance to both uptown and downtown, great restaurants (let Jim get you reservations - really), and the refurbed Rose Theater. Plenty of parking and... More

We visit Port Townsend at least once a year and always try to stay at the Commender's Beach House. Such a relaxing atmosphere with fabulous beds (we've slept in them all), beautiful water views, soothing shore sounds and tasty breakfasts. One of our favorite pleasures is walking into town for dinner at one of the many delicious restaurants. The beach... More

We are inlanders who love the sea so this visit was a real treat. Port Townsend is the ultimate seaside community and the Commander's Beach House was the perfect setting to enjoy our time there and have an authentic maritime experience. The house is part of the historic port so is convenient to the marina and facilities as well as... More

My wife and I stayed at The Commander's Beach House for a short weekend getaway. The B & B was in a great location, right on the sound and next to the downtown area. The breakfasts were amazing! What made our stay extra special was the hospitality of the owners, Jim and Gail. This place was a great value!

Fabulous Puget Sound views and warm hospitality offered by Gail and Jim. Schooner is my favorite room, but all rooms are lovely. I've stayed at least once a year since discovering CBH six years ago. Port Townsend a delightful town to explore.
