We wanted to stay at a B & B in Gig Harbor itself, close to the water, with perhaps a view, but our instincts and research kept leading us to Bear's Lair which is located about ten minutes drive from the harbor. Immediately upon arrival we knew we'd made the right choice!
A wonderful property built by the owner's in a secluded wooded area that is quiet and peaceful, with a wonderful and warm interior. We stayed in the Dahlia Room, a very nicely appointed and sizeable room, with a comfy king-sized bed. The lounge/breakfast area that is for all guests, is large, yet cozy, and invites one to linger with a book and a coffee.
The attention to detail that owner's Jen and Giulio have invested into this bed and breakfast, is evident not only in the fine woodwork of the building and furniture, but also in what I call the "extras", like a fridge stocked with drinks, plus cookies and candies which are available 24/7, along with all the nice touches to make your stay more pleasant and effortless. Breakfast was delicious with lovely presentation, all prepared and served by the friendly Jen, who takes the time to get to know her guests and make you feel welcome.
We will return, and highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
