Lucky lucky us to have been guided by the dozens of adoring reviews on tripadvisor to The Commander's Beach House in Port Townsend! Everything positive we read turned out to be absolutely true during our 2-night stay. Gail and Jim are warm, genuine, fun, and funny, so welcoming and generous with their time and helpful recommendations. Their B&B is comfortable, relaxing, charming, and beautifully situated for views, wildlife watching, and exploring. CBH is easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and entertainment, or a wonderful hike along the beach to the Point Wilson Lighthouse. What a treat to park the car and forget about it for 3 days. We stayed in the Island View room which was sweet and spacious and looked over the Inlet. Our private bath down the hall was spotless and well-stocked. Breakfast was creative and delicious and we were lucky enough enjoy it on the veranda one day, thanks to unexpected lovely weather. We walked past several other lodgings that get high marks on tripadvisor, and they do look great, but we've found our Port Townsend "home" at CBH and can't wait to return one day!
- 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
