As if it wasn't enough just to return to our favorite Port Townsend to photograph and explore it's charm, we had the greatest of good fortunes to reserve a room at the Commander's Beach House. Gail and Jim made us feel immediately that we were honored guests and we found that nothing was missing to make this stay memorable. We could have spent our whole two days just in this fabulous place. The taste and presentation of the breakfasts was flawless and wishing Gail would write a breakfast cookbook. Beds were extremely comfortable and we slept like babies in the quiet house. Two blocks from the heart of town made a car unnecessary. I especially loved browsing through the common areas looking at the antiques and all the colorful and unique knick-knacks. Go visit. You will want to return often.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Commander's Beach House is the only bed and breakfast that is located right on the water in downtown Port Townsend. You can walk on the beach to Fort Worden or easily stroll three blocks along the water front to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. Three of our rooms face the water and have private baths. Our fourth room faces the garden and has a shared bath located inside of the room. You can enjoy views of Admiralty Inlet, Mt. Baker, Whidbey Island, all of the boats and ships that go into Seattle, as well as vintage wooden schooners and yawls. Eagles, herons, otters and seals are frequently seen by our guests. A full sit down gourmet breakfast is served at individual tables or on our veranda, weather permitting. Come fall asleep lulled by the sounds of the sea and "relax and solve nothing"! ... more less
