My wife and I were on an unplanned road trip when we came upon this beautiful and ideally located bed and breakfast. Beautiful place, great value, excellent food and wonderful hosts. We will surely return.

There were many things I liked about this place but other things that bothered me so this will be a mixed review. The house is in a central location so we could walk to see all the stores, museum and restaurants. There is a large covered porch at the back of the house with a spectacular view of the ocean....

Had wonderful weather and hospitality and breakfast! Second time I have stayed there. The garden is a joy to walk through. We got lots of good advice on restaurants as well. Biked along the coastal bike trail for a delightful day and then hiked up at Hurricane Ridge the next day.

Jim and Gail, the inn keepers, could not have been more accommodating to us, as we looked for some R&R that would truly be relaxing and refreshing. We appreciated all the thoughtful touches, the delicious (gluten- and dairy-free for me) breakfasts, the lovely decor, the world class location and view. The beds are unusually comfortable, and the views are unparalleled.... More

My husband and I stayed at Commanders Beach House in Port Townsend on July 3 & 4th, 2015. What a wonderful stay it was! Jim and Gail are great hosts. Their home was so welcoming. They served a wonderful breakfast. We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite. It was a very nice and comfortable room and the view was awesome! The... More

We wish we had the opportunity to give this place a try, but my sister made the reservation a month before our vacation, and filed what she thought would be the confirmation email. It turns out the link in the email didn't work and when July rolled around and she tried to access it for our reservation we couldn't remember... More

As the owners of a small family owned B&B my husband and I endeavor to provide wonderful experiences for our guests, as reflected by our over 215 "excellent" reviews. When a guest makes a reservation we enter into a contract with them that guarantees that the room they booked will be available for them unless it is cancelled in accordance... More

A private waterfront retreat. A large and well maintained flower garden separates you from the world. Within the confines of the front yard there are varied places to relax, glide or swing. The maritime traffic provides entertainment along with seals, sea gulls and hummingbirds in the foreground and Islands and Cascade mountain views the background. Peace and tranquility are the...

Jim and Gail made us feel like we were part of the family. We felt right at home. Plenty of laughs, fantastic location and wonderful breakfast each morning. It's located right on the beach and you can walk to town easily. Would highly recommend a stay at the Commander's Beach House when you visit Port Townsend. Loved every minute of... More

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Commander's Beach House with our innkeepers, Jim & Gail. They were awesome. We loved being on the water, hearing the waves and listening to seagulls! Jim drove us to Fort Worden which allowed us to hike around the Fort and then back to the Commander's Beach House. Breakfasts were delicious and gave us... More
