“The Commander's Beach House in Port Townsend, WA is a great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2009

Last weekend my wife and I spent in Port Townsend, WA at The Commander's Beach House B&B. If you're planning a visit to PT, I would highly recommend this place. Not only is the inn tastefully done, but the food is great and the owners two of the most fun innkeepers we've had the opportunity to stay with. We've stayed at dozens of inns up and down the west coast and this one rates right up there toward the top.

We could not have been received more warmly. The owners are more than accommodating with their terrific personalities. The location is outstanding, and far exceeded our expectations. This B&B is absolutely spotless! Breakfast is lovely (and delicious) on the front porch overlooking the deep blue. Our room had an ocean view and was very comfortably arranged. It was so relaxing and quiet, and definitely hard to say good-bye!

CBH was an awesome experience for us. My wife and I had wanted to go for months and we were quite pleased with our stay. No tv and plenty of down tme to walk and talk. Sipping a glass of wine offered by our hosts when we first arrived while sitting in the sun with a light cool breeze was a great greeting to the Northwest. Cocktails and great seafood at very reasonable rates a short walk away. Our room, the Lighthouse Room, has great views and listening to the waves lap on the shore at night was lulled us to sleep. Taking a few minutes to watch the daytime sea traffic into Seattle was really fun and we even spent some time poking around in the antique mall. I sense that women usually write these reviews but I enjoyed it so much I had to write. Jim and Gail are very hospitable. Try CBH. You will be as enchanted as I am.

The Commander's Beach House is a gracious combination of the Hostesses Yankee background and the Host's Washington State humor (A happy wife is a happy wife). This is basically a three-couple B&B with both red and white wines constantly available. Our hearty breakfast featured peach mango juice, apple nut pancakes and apple streusal toast. The house itself has been nicely restored and is situated on a very wide beach. You can hear the lapping of waves all night, which made our stay very restful.

Port Townsend (PT) has been a yearly get-away for my husband and I for the past nine years. He proposed in PT seven years ago and we just headed back for our six-year anniversary. We decided to try something new and found the Commander's Beach House online. Let me start by saying, it was the most relaxing stay at Port Townsend to date and we have found our new favorite B&B. Jim & Gail are so warm and welcoming...we found ourselves staying an unexpected second night. We feel in love with their charming house, their dog (Cutter), Gail's sweetness, and Jim's kind but funny personality. It was a perfect get-away and so looking forward to our next visit at the Commander's Beach House.

If you visit Port Townsend you should stay at this great little B&B! The location right in front of the beach is superb (10 steps backward from where I took the attached photo and I'd be in the water!). Plus, it's only a short walk to the marina and both the downtown and uptown areas.

Our room, while on the smallish side, was very comfortable. The lack of drink-making facilities in the room was more than compensated for by those on offer (incl wine!) in the lounge, which has stunning views across the sound to the Cascade mountains - on a clear day :-)

The homemade breakfast was both substantial and delicious. The real highlight, though, is the relaxed and friendly welcome and service provided by the owners. As well as assisting with a minor illness, they were extremely helpful in recommending things to do and see, restaurants to try, and assisting us with subsequent travel plans.

Highly recommended.
