“Good Eats + Great Price = Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2006

The Inn at Rooster Hill is a quaint, freshly painted, four-story country home on a lush 2.5 acre lot, complete with apple and plum trees, blackberry bushes, two large maple trees with tire-swings on them, and huge patio decks with outdoor dining tables. When we got to the front door, we were greeted by Peggy, the Inn's owner/manager/chef/tour guide extraordinaire, and by Harley and CoCo, the Inn's resident Golden/Lab Retriever and Bichon Frise, respectively.

Peggy and her husband Layne have made the Inn feel warm, friendly, clean, and new. The dining room has several round bistro-style tables, cozy armchairs, antique chandeliers, and rooster-themed wall hangings. The adjacent sitting room has a small DVD library (which included recent hits such as the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Batman Begins, and King Kong), as well as maps, brochures, and other tourist information.

Peggy showed us to the Andrews Room, our travel- and astronomy-themed suite; the bookcase had dozens of back issues of National Geographic, a World War II-era globe, and several reference books on the physics of the universe. The linens and the black-and-white striped duvet were brand-new, as were the matching hand-sewn decorative pillows. The beautiful queen-sized bed frame was made of a deep, chestnut-colored wood. The bed itself was comfy, no doubt thanks to the thick, pillow-top mattress pad. The kitchenette had a microwave, a coffeemaker, microwave popcorn. The bathroom had locally made lavender soap and lotion.

The Inn uses organic and nontoxic cleaning products and avoids using heavy chemicals at all costs, even in the hot tub, which Peggy and Layne keep spotless thanks to a combination of bromine and natural enzymes, rather than chlorine.

Peggy also cooks with fresh, locally grown ingredients. For breakfast, she made me a vegetarian crustless quiche that was chock-full of flavorful zucchini, onions, and crimini mushrooms. She also puts out a table of continental breakfast items, including vanilla yogurt, granola, and fruit salad (so that you can build a do-it-yourself yogurt parfait), juice, coffee, and homemade bran muffins with an assortment of tasty jams.

After a long day of driving and hiking. we decided to soak in the hot tub (conveniently located outside our window) after grabbing a bite to eat in downtown Port Angeles. The temperature was set to a perfect 104 degrees. We sat and watched the stars.

As other folks have mentioned, the best part of staying here was Peggy and Layne's generosity and hospitality. They made us feel like family and welcomed us into their home. They gave us so many ideas for places to see, restaurants to try, etc. They gave us maps and made sure we knew how to get to where we wanted to go! We are already planning to go back in a few weeks. This place is a hidden gem!

My stay with Layne and Peggy at The Inn at Rooster Hill was one of the most pleasurable road trip experiences I've ever had. I don't know how they pulled it off, but they made me feel more at home, than, well... I feel at home. :)

The home, the grounds, the room, and the food are all amazing, but I think there's a certain spirit going on there, for lack of better words, to the place that sets it apart from anywhere else. You'll see what I mean.

Enjoy!

This was the best bed and breakfast experience I have ever had. I spent many wonderful summers in Victoria B.C. being spoiled by my Grandma. Peggy and Layne made me feel that special again.

The breakfast was much better than my memories of tea and toast though and there is so much to do in the area, two nights was just not long enough. I wonder if they give a discount if I stayed a whole week...or more.

From the moment we drove up the driveway bordered with twinkle-lit shrubs; we were entranced. This rural property is only a short drive from the Port Angeles ferry terminal, but you feel a world away! The inn is large, but the warmth and hospitality from innkeepers Peggy & Layne, make it feel cozy and homey, too. Things we liked: Our very comfy bed, in "Andrews" room; oversized fluffy towels for the big, clean hot tub; views of mountain and woods from decks on each floor; charming & interesting accents throughout the entire inn; liqueurs and other evening treats; TV/DVD in privacy of our room; in-room fridge; large closet & bathroom; our beautifully set individual dining table for the delicious breakfast in the parlour. We wish Peggy & Layne success with their new inn. It's a winner!
