We were so lucky to have snagged Pilot's Cottage many months in advance of Port Townsend's fantastic annual film festival. Having visited PT several times, we knew exactly what kind of property we wanted to stay at this time: A single-family home, smack dab in the heart of the action, but not so smack-dab that it was noisy, and not...

As I write this, I am sitting on the front porch, looking across a small harbor that is filled with boats. Just a beautiful place to watch the sun come up in the morning. Today we walked in town, coming back by to drop off things we bought, since it is so close. Yes, this cottage does have a special...

Our family rented this cabin for the 4th of July. The location is great but we found the house to be lacking in a lot of things we might expect for a rental. The rooms were okay but weren't very clean...we ran into lots of cob webs and broken windows/screens. We couldn't find garbage bags and there was no hand...

Management response:

We adore most of our guests!~ This took some imagination to write. Our expectations are gentle. I personally showed them the firecracker red recycle bin, found it empty when they left with a bag of mixed diapers & McDonalds recyclables. Our cute Disney soaps for the kids were unwrapped and few of the ten towels supplied for number in party,...

About the neighborhood
The Pilots Cottage, a talisman in a timeless postcard setting facing a jaunty fleet of wooden small craft and yachts. A private hideaway just 25' from the waters edge on a sundrenched, corner. Downtown ammenities and the new Maritime Center begin just a block close. The neighborhood is a working seaport of boatbuilders, sailmakers, riggers, foundrycraftsmen,and boat haul out with chandlery Sailing classes for all ages can be arranged by the week or a one time session on a rowing or skippered sailboat.
Kayak rentals or guided tours are a summer treat in the shallows of local waters.

There's something to do here every day, all year round.
We have two state parks nearby and a third across the inlet to Whidbey Island, Fort Worden, a quick drive or beach hike away Fort Towns...
