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

In a town full of many good lodging spots, Commander's Beach House sits at the top of the list for several reasons. It is located directly on the shore - step outside, cross a broad lawn bordered by flowers, and touch the sandy beach. It is in the lower part of town - an easy walk to many restaurants and... More

Gail and Jim were warm and wonderful hosts and the rooms were beautifully set up. There's a large cozy living room equipped with snacks and tea and a huge backyard right on the water. And breakfast was delicious and filling even though they were catering to a lot of dietary restrictions. I'm already looking forward to a return visit!

We rented the whole house while in Port Townsend for our daughter's wedding at the Maritime Center. The hosts were wonderfully accommodating and available but never intrusive. The breakfasts were delicious, varied and ample. My husband is gluten-sensitive, and with advance notice, they marvelously adapted our menu. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. My mother-in-law stayed in the downstairs room... More

I was gifted by my dear friend with a two night stay at The Commander's Beach House. I can't imagine a more wonderful spot. The setting is beautiful, inside and out. My friend and I enjoyed excellent breakfasts on the porch facing the water and mountains. The house is elegant and interesting, but also very relaxed and comfortable. There are... More

I would have to write two reviews with two perspectives to get this right, but will try in one. We were a little disappointed upon arrival to find the inn right smack in the middle of an RV park, but then the inn is on the water and has an amazing view. My impression of the inn is that of... More

We just loved our stay at the Commander's Beach House. The B&B had a nautical theme which made it fun especially since we were on the water and close to a marina. The view from the porch and grounds was fantastic. it was within walking distance to Port Townsend's shops and restaurants. Our hosts were gracious and informative.

We stayed at the Commander's for the first time in Feb. 2014. We were back again Aug. 2014, we loved it the first time and will be back a 3rd time! We were treated like family. We love the Light House Suite, the breakfasts are yummers. It is in a great location, you can walk all over town. When I... More
