We just spent the last two nights at this amazing B&B. Gail and Jim are not only gracious, and wonderful hosts, they open their home and their hearts to those who enter . It is apparent that his more than a job, it is a passion. Gail creates these scrumptious breakfasts, and Jim, well, what can we say, he and my husband were kindred spirits, even though Rob is a crazy "Canadian" eh Jim ? LOL. We stayed in the Island View room and were awakened both mornings with sunsets over the ocean right outside our window. Life does not get any better. We were treated to the delights of Port Townsend and everywhere we went, we were greeted with warm smiles and welcoming kindness. We were blessed to share the B&B with a delightful young woman from Seattle and we look forward to seeing her on stage accepting her academy award for costume design. All we enjoyed this weekend, made our Thanksgiving one of true gratitude and thankfulness for all we enjoyed. You will not be disappointed with your stay at The Commanders Beach House. This was our 2nd visit and we are planning our 3rd, 4th, 5th, ...you get the hint. PS thanks for the wine ,a lovely gesture from Jim and Gail as repeat customers.

- 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
