The Commander's Beach House is an absolutely charming B&B. We spent three nights there in March, off-season, a bit cloudy and cold, but the warmth at the Beach House more than compensated for the weather. The location is spectacular, right on the beach, with views of the Cascades when the clouds part. You're only a couple of short blocks from the beautifully restored Victorian downtown. The rooms are comfortable, spotless, and nicely decorated, but the hosts, Gail and Jim, are the real drawing card. Their warmth, hospitality and sense of humor made our stay there one of the highlights of our vacation.
- 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
