My husband and I have always enjoyed stayed here many times in the past and this year was no exception. Jim and Gayle went out of their way to make our 25th anniversary a memorable one. Jim and Gayle are great hosts: funny, gracious and a fountain of knowledge for fun things to do and see locally. The Beach House... More

I'm not sure whether it's Jim or his dog Cutter who ultimately makes you feel immediately welcome but either way...from the minute the door opens you feel like this is your home, even if it's just for a few days. I had never stayed at a B&B before, I have always been a bit of a hotel kinda traveler, but... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Commander's Beach House twice now. First time two years ago, again just last weekend. Both times we were in the second floor Lighthouse Room. Very comfortable furnishings including of course the comfy bed. Downstairs, the public space is homey and furnished with antiques from the era when the local US Navy officers... More

We enjoyed our weekend in Jim and Gayle's home. They were great hosts, gracious, friendly, relaxed, and encouraged the feeling of mi casa es su casa. The accommodations were comfortable and they provided an appetizing breakfast, good coffee, and a house wine for later in the day. It was quiet, close to the water and walking distance to the "old"... More

The inn keepers, Gail & Jim, are so welcoming and friendly. The bed & breakfast is located on the water with wonderful and relaxing views of the water and islands. Sitting in the front yard watching and listening to the waves is really heavenly. You can even hear the waves in your bedrooms - lulling you to sleep. The house... More

I had the good fortune to take my mom on a two night mini vacation to Port Townsend Washington. We stayed at quant, clean, homey, bed and breakfast that had a lot of history and was located right on the water . There is nothing like waking up to an amazing sunrise with the smell of salt water while listening... More

My husband and I stayed at the Commander's Beach House on a recent trip to Port Townsend for a wedding. I'm really glad we made reservations here after looking online, because it's a well-hidden gem within easy walking distance to the Maritime Center and downtown PT, but tucked away past a marina. The house is really unique and the rooms... More

My wife and I stayed at the Commander’s Beach House on Sept 10-11 and it was a truly memorable experience. We were lodged in the Lighthouse Suite and cannot recommend it highly enough. The rooms are bright and airy, yet cozy and romantic at the same time. The view – oh, the view! Morning sunrises and evening “super moon” rises... More

The tranquil beauty of the Northwest, Puget Sound, Cascade Mountains, and the very quaint Port Townsend all just a step off the front porch of Commanders Beach House. That would be more than enough to draw us back year after year for the past 10 years. But the real teat is the warm hospitality of Jim and Gail. Always there... More

What a wonderful place to stay in Port Townsend. On a recent visit, it was very sunny and warm. I spent many hours on the porch facing Admiralty Inlet enjoying the view and the breeze. The breakfasts are very special and something different every day. We stayed for four days and I could have stayed another week, it was so... More
