My husband and I went here to celebrate our very first anniversary and were floored by how pleasant and comfortable our stay was.
We landed ourselves here simply because large groups had booked out the first hotels in Port Townsend that Google showed us. It turned out to be the best accident ever! We stayed in the Tower Suite and loved the views throughout the day. Cindy and Nathan are incredibly welcoming, helpful, and considerate. Their dog, Ursa, is better behaved than any dog I've met yet, and I'm usually nervous around new dogs.
Their breakfast was a treat, 3 hand made courses shared with all the other guests. Their coffee blend (which they crafted themselves at Sunrise Coffee Co.) was delicious. We also loved being welcome to wander the house and grounds. Easy walking to town, helpful restaurant tips, and truffles every night.
One word to the wise: look closely at the room you book, as it does list each individual room's bathroom situation on their website. We thoroughly enjoyed having a tub and bath salts even though the shower head did not have a place to hook up high. I can see how that could be a challenge for some individuals. Plenty of rooms do have showers.
We found our stay to be well worth the cost and will be back the next time we want to get away!
