And so it was that Jeff and I found ourselves on an adventure to Port Townsend, Washington. What a quaint little town it is! With a whimsical little downtown with delightful docks. Lots and lots of beautiful old buildings!
Commander’s Beach House, 400 Hudson St.Port Townsend,WA, 360-385-1778
The Commander’s Beach House is the only bed and breakfast located right on the beach in Port Townsend. It is 60-70 feet away from the beach. There were no bugs. We stayed in the Island View room and the first thing we did was open up the window wide so we could hear the sounds of the water lapping against the beach. The privacy was astonishing and I couldn’t believe how close we were. It felt like we owned the beach.
The beach house was built in 1934 and is decorated in a relaxed Cape Cod style.
There are 4 bedrooms, three with private baths and 1 with a shared bath which is accessed from inside of the room. Two of the rooms have fireplaces as does the living room. There are spectacular bedroom views of Whidbey Island, Mt, Baker and the Cascades, Point Wilson Lighthouse and the Admiralty Inlet shipping lanes.
The back porch, and views from it:
The interior of the Bed and Breakfast was full of lively, whimsical things. Lots of nautical trinkets. Lots of books. Beautiful music. Full of personality and life.
We ate breakfast as we watched a giant bald eagle chase some pesky crows away. Awesome.
Go visit The Commander’s Beach House and tell them Froggie sent you.
They will take care of you. They have all sorts of brochures of things to see, and menus from all of the local restaurants. I was given the rundown on good food the moment I asked. Great hospitable couple!
