This is a lovely B&B and the owners take special steps to give excellent service. The Inn’s 3-course breakfasts are delicious and there are tasty chocolate chip cookies at the end of the day. The Inn’s location is on a bluff across the street from the magnificent County Courthouse and within walking distance of the town center and ferry. The owners take the time to provide you with an interesting history of the inn and Port Townsend, plus the staff dresses in period costumes to carry out the feel of the original period of house. We were in the Master Suite with views of the harbor and a delightful sitting area that was just perfect for enjoying a book or a glass of wine at the end of the day. My husband and I both loved this room and the Old Consulate Inn in general. It is a wonderful place to stay.
