The moment Cindy greeted us at the door of her establishment, we stepped back in time. The Christmas tree by the front door and tasteful decor added festive atmosphere away from home.
Stranded in Port Townsend by cancelled ferries Cindy looked after us like lost puppies. Hospitality took on a new dimension.
We opted for her most basic room (since we were paying for two hotel rooms that night) and loved it. The bed was super comfortable, there were delicious truffles on the dresser and the attention to detail was impressive.
Cindy and Nathan certainly lived up to their motto to make our stay nothing short of extra ordinary.
Too bad we arrived and left in the dark, so we never enjoyed seeing it at daylight but we hope to back some day to enjoy more than one night at the Old Consulate Inn.
Cindy got up early to pack us a breakfast we just couldn't miss and thoroughly enjoyed on the ferry back to Whitbey Island.
