“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and I spent a full week at The Parsonage...our home base for our travels to Seattle, Wenatchee, Mount Rainer, Snoqualmie, and Friday Harbor in the San Juan Island. John and Mary, made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The property is lovingly cared for inside and out. The gourmet breakfasts are simply too good to miss. Gig Harbor is a beautiful getaway, GREAT restaurants, quaint shops, not too far from any tourist hot spot, and the perfect position for views of the ever elusive Mount Rainer across the harbor. We left with good memories, full stomachs, a glorious view of the mountain and two new friends. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

“Fantastic!!”

First experience at a Bed & Breakfast and it was absolutely great! Our family (5+) were attending graduation at University of Puget Sound and wanted a new and different experience with lodging. John & Mary were absolutely outstanding, very personable, accommodating and made us feel like one of the family. Always there to help us in any way, suggesting things to do and see in Gig Harbor and providing directions and any materials that would help. Breakfasts were fantastic and delightful and Mary was always sure to ask for any suggestions, idea regarding what our party would like. The Parsonage Bed & Breakfast is absolutely beautiful and a hidden treasure that we will definitely be visiting again!

It was a great place for my husband and daughter to relax while visiting Gig Harbor. The owners make you feel so welcome and at home. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wanting a home feeling for your stay. The breakfast is amazing.

“Lovely food and beds, location, innkeepers”

person found this review helpful

John and Mary are gracious innkeepers, and warm and friendly and funny. The husband-wife team prepares tasty breakfasts that don't repeat (we stayed a week and oohed and ahhed each morning). We felt welcomed, and always were met with kindness. Top-notch experience. The Paraonage is just a couple of blocks from a look out of Gig Harbor where you can watch the sun come up over Mt Ranier (on a nice day, which we had!). Beds are comfy. Home is tidy. High praise for the Souzas!

“A great bed and breakfast and wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our three week tour of the North West this summer.The accommodation is of a high standard and although we had to share a bathroom with other guests this was really not a problem. We were made to feel very welcome and particularly enjoyed meeting the other guests at breakfast and the homely personal attention from the hosts Mary and John. Gig Harbor is delightful and we wished we could have stayed for longer to further explore the area.

We are so glad you selected The Parsonage B and B for your Puget Sound region visit. Most visitors take advantage of our great discounted group rate and book both rooms. When the rooms are individually booked, they share 1.5 baths. We are careful about cleaning the baths each day when the rooms are booked separately. You were delightful visitors from England and we so enjoyed getting to know you! Thank you for staying at The Parsonage and for your wonderful 5 star review!!

“Great location, very comfortable, delicious food and wonderful hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed here (5 adult family members) between 1 & 8 September 2013 and will definitely stay here again when we next visit Seattle. John & Mary are the best hosts that you could wish for and went out of their way to accommodate our travel and touring itinerary. The gourmet breakfasts were truly delicious and a tribute to Mary's culinary skills and John's prolific garden. The rooms are beautifully furnished, as is the whole house, and the beds are very comfortable - although the cot is not as comfortable as the beds, according to our daughter! We can thoroughly recommend The Parsonage to any visitors.

We stayed here with friends for three nights before traveling to Alaska. Their beautiful re-furbished parsonage/home was a perfect base for exploring Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Mt. Ranier, Seattle. John and Mary make you feel right at home. Their homemade breakfasts were all outstanding. Example: pumpkin souffle with pecans, citrus smoothie, watermelon slices, homemade scones, bluebarb crunch made with rhubarb from their fabulous gardens surrounding the house, and every plate was garnished with teeny flowers picked from their garden, also. Beautifully set table in the dining room. Your very own cozy robe is available should you choose to relax in their hot tub. We had a king bed which was very comfortable. A small , personal refrigerator is in your room, also.
