We landed on our feet at this interesting home with colourful gardens and spectacular views.Best of all though the caring and 'larger than life' owner who is a 'cordon blue' chef presenting 5 course breakfasts that set one up for the day.In addition she is a very knowledgable travel agent about the area and offers personal and helpful advice about local restaurants.We have no reservations in recommending this B and B

Sometimes one can't explain a feeling they get after being somewhere. This is one of those places. The best word I can use to describe this place is "enchanting." My 20-year-old daughter and I were on a mother-daughter trip. On a whim, we decided to stay here two nights in the most expensive room. It was worth it. We are still reminiscing. Our room was like a house; it was huge! It even had two Lazy-boy recliners. We had incredible views of the ocean with Victoria and the San Juan's in the distance. As stated in a previous review, this place is an interesting mix of antiques and asian decor, but with good taste and all the amenities one would expect. The grounds are like a lush, peaceful botanical garden. The owner, Jeri, is an incredible cook and hostess. Each breakfast was a delicious three course meal! Jeri was able to offer helpful guidance in what was worth seeing in the area. I have stayed at many bed & breakfasts over the years that were wonderful, but this is truly special place!

We originally found this amazing place 17 years ago in Sunset Magazine. I called to see if I could get reservations for Valentine's weekend. Well, This Valentine's Weekend we stayed again. It was our 16th Valentine's weekend we stayed. We have also gone in July for the Lavendar Festival and in October for the Crab Festival. We have stayed at Domaine madeleine at east 20 times! Why you ask? The place is amazing! The owner Jeri is wonderful at what she does. The grounds are beautiful especially in the summer. The House is right on the water, and the five course breakfast is to die for. We have stayed at other nice B&B's in Napa and Seattle, but none compare to this one. Whether you are coming for a weekend, or a week. Don't pass this one up.

We were intending to stay 1 night here but after our breakfast and first night, we asked for another night. It is January so we were given an excellent rate and we were the only guests for both nights. The B&B is the right blend of comfortable hospitality and tasteful style. We enjoyed the winter gardens, the eagles chirping from the shore and the ships passing. The owners are interested in solar power as well as organic gardening. At this time, they are designing and building an aquaponic system for growing garden vegetables as well as fresh fish for the table! It was an inspiration.
The breakfast/brunch deserves a chapter in itself; freshly juiced tangerine, apple crepes, chocolate croissants, fruit compodes-- all homemade there. It was almost too much for my little french heart to take!

While researching our trip to the Olympic peninsula, I came across the National Geographic website "Road Trip" http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/road-trips/olympic-peninsula-washington-road-trip/ Domaine Madeline was mentioned as the place to stay in Port Angeles.
I read the reviews on this site and booked 2 nights thinking it was as a slam dunk.
I never thought it would be as outstanding as it is, Jeri is the warmest, friendliest hostess you could ever imagine, everything you could imagine she has thought of and provided. I have never felt so comfortable away from home. My wife owns a travel agency and we have stayed at many top notch resorts. None of them outshine Domaine Madeline. Breakfasts are incredible, Creative and delicious, you wont need lunch. We enjoyed conversations with other guests hearing about their travels and getting new ideas.
Stay here as many nights as you can!!!

My husband and I ended up at Domaine Madeleine by a "happy accident" (the place we intended to stay double booked us). So glad we did! We chose to stay in "The Cottage" for our three-night stay to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was like being in our own little house, tucked in among the towering fir trees and beautiful wildflowers. There's a little waterfall, a foot bridge, and park-like area to stroll in, just beside the small patio off the cottage. Bed was super comfortable. TV/VCR worked great, and we brought our own movies but there is an extensive library in the main quarters to choose from (free). Wonderful cookies and beverages always available. Gorgeous views. Elegant dining room with the best food we've ever had at a bed and breakfast -- in both taste and presentation. The owner (Jeri) is friendly and warm, but not intrusive. Sequim, Port Townsend, Port Angeles all easily accessible. We didn't go to Victoria this trip, but this would be a great place to stay if you want to take the ferry from Port Angeles and go over for a day trip to BC.

Room Tip: The cottage is "quaint and cozy" -- not as elegantly fancy as some of the other rooms perh...

Over the course of six nights, we stayed at three different B & B’s in the Port Angeles / Sequim area (two nights each). Although this post is a bit lengthy, it is a review of all three, and is intended for comparison purposes....at least for three of the B &B’s that are available in this area.

This comes with the usual disclaimers: our tastes may differ from yours, we may have different budgets, we may have different notions of quality and value, we may have different interests, yada, yada, yada.

Also, apologies for the length of this post, but our philosophy is, the more information the better when choosing where to stay.

George Washington Inn
Your first impression of this property will be memorable. The long driveway is lined with the purple of lavender plants (it is also a working lavender farm), and the two story inn is an impressive structure as it has the design and footprint of George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
The interior is just as impressive as the exterior. We had a private entrance on the ground floor, but our suite was upstairs and Dan carried our luggage up. We stayed in the General’s Suite ($280 /night). It was large and airy with a large bathroom, a king-sized bed, flat screen TV, and kitchen area that included a fridge, microwave, sink, and 4-seat dining table. The bedding was extremely comfortable, the bathroom toiletries/amenities were exceptional, the kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, silverware, and the cleanliness of the room and the common areas was exceptional. In other words, this inn has all of the small touches covered the way you would expect from a premium property, which this definitely is.
Although the front of the property is impressive, the back of the inn is equally, if not more impressive. Off of our suite, and running the full length of the inn, was a covered veranda (great for inclement weather) that afforded an unbelievable view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. You can watch container ships, cruise ships, military ships, and nuclear subs(only seldom) pass by. It is so quiet and peaceful, it could easily lull you to sleep.
The breakfast room is below the upper veranda and offers the same exceptional views. The size and openness of the veranda and the breakfast room certainly add to the ambiance.
The food was also exceptional, with an offering of fruit, an egg dish, and lavender flavored biscuits of pastries (remember, it’s a lavender farm also).
Janet and Dan are very friendly hosts/owners and provide excellent hospitality.
The only con we encountered was the shower/bath in the General’s Suite. The shower has a rain shower head which is located over the center of the jacuzzi tub. It is surrounded by a circular shower curtain. This is visible in the photos of the suite. Because the tub is rather deep and the floor of the tub is not flat but irregular, getting in and out of the tub can be cumbersome, and the irregular floor makes for unsure footing. In addition, the controls are behind the curtain which makes adjustments a bit problematic. This could probably be solved by reconfiguration and installing a small separate shower. I would not stay in this particular suite again due to this issue.
All in all, the George Washington Inn is an exceptional B&B, and we would definitely stay here again.


Domaine Madeleine
The Domain Madeleine is another exceptional B&B. Although the entrance is not as impressive as the George Washington, these grounds have their own exceptional qualities. Like the GW, there are fantastic views of the Strait, and the peace and quite are alluring. They may not have a covered veranda for inclement weather, but they have multiple seating areas, and one very special place to sit.
When facing the water, there is a new stairway built at the far right end of the property that leads to the beach. For various reasons, beach access is not allowed, but don’t despair. There is a bench provided at the first landing of the stairway. When sitting here you are in a different world. The only sounds you hear are the waves crashing below, or the occasional ship that passes by. Being an early riser, I sat there both mornings and was kept company by a sap-sucker, hummingbirds, and bald eagles that nest nearby. If for no other reason, this made it worth staying here.
We stayed in the Renoir Room ($250 /night) one night and the Monet ($215) the other night. Both rooms are spacious and well appointed with extremely comfortable bedding and great attention to detail and small touches. There is no fridge in either room, but there is one available to guests in the main kitchen, which is accessible at all hours. In addition, there is an ice machine in the main kitchen area.
The major difference between the Monet and Renoir rooms is the Monet has a gas fireplace, a small corner shower, and a large jacuzzi tub, whereas the Renoir has no fireplace, and has a large walk-in shower only. The Renoir does include exclusive use of a separate living room where there is a fireplace.
The Domain M highly advertises its five course breakfast, and with good reason. The food is truly exceptional. The second morning we had a pistachio encrusted halibut that was out of this world.
Like GW, this is an exceptional B&B, and Jeri and her staff provide fantastic hospitality.



Inn at Rooster Hill
The Inn at Rooster Hill operates in a different spectrum than the George Washington or the Domain Madeleine. It is for the more budget-conscious and has more of the feel of a boarding house. The property is not nearly as nice nor as maintained, and there is no view nor attraction to the location as it is located on a dead end in a rural neighborhood just outside Port Angeles. We stayed in the Roiel (pronounced royal) room ($179) which was quite spacious with a jacuzzi tub, corner shower, and a large walk-in closet that also contained a fridge, microwave, and sink.
Unlike the GW and DM, the small touches and details are missing, an indication that corners are cut to save money and keep prices low: no bar soap at all, no lotions, the bedding is adequate and, in addition, the rooms are cleaned only every three days if you stay multiple nights. No fresh sheets (and the bed is unmade), no new towels, and if you use any plates, glasses, or silverware, it won’t get cleaned for three days. This is freely stated on the website.
The food is adequate but nothing special and, back to the missing details, there was only sugar for tea or coffee, no artificial sweetener like Splenda or Sweet and Low. The common area and the dining arrangements are small, although you can eat on the deck if you wish. All in all, as mentioned before, it has the feel of a boarding house, where special amenities or frills aren’t provided.
That said, the rooms are clean, there is plenty of hot water, and the location affords a quite night’s sleep. In addition, Peggy and Layne are very hospitable, very free with information and, for the budget conscious, the rooms are less per night than the GW or DM, and there is no two-night minimum. Also, some of their policies are a little more flexible than the upscale B&B’s.

In conclusion, since our budget will allow for it, the George Washington Inn and the Domain Madeleine run neck and neck as our preferred B&B. They each have their own special attributes. If you are looking for an upscale B&B experience, you can’t go wrong with either place. They are both truly exceptional properties. We have stayed at many B&B’s and we don’t say that lightly. If instead you are very budget-conscious and don’t care about the location or frills, the Inn at Rooster Hill will definitely meet your needs. Like was mentioned before, they simply operate in a different spectrum.
