Wife and I go to Port Townsend every late Spring/early Fall for a few days of get away, but go often on day trips. Never thought of staying at "The Swan" until last year when we saw it as we walked the town to the far end. It was a good decision. We stayed in one of the small cottages.... More

I agree with the others who stayed here that the location is quiet with respect to street noise and other distractions. I also agree that the room is comfortable and clean. The chairs on the verandas of the building are a very nice touch. But, the other reviewers that I read did not mention that you can hear conversations, bathroom... More

We had one of their little cottages. They have managed to take a small space and make it feel very comfortable and they have included lots of thoughtful amenities. Each cottage has its own parking place. The location is absolutely perfect for walking around the town and several good restaurants are close by. The staff is very helpful. It should... More

Dear Guest, The greatest pleasure of staying in a cottage is sitting out in the individual garden area, relaxing in the Adirondack chairs, and just watching the world go by. Thank you for enjoying your visit with us! Best regards More

I arrived in Port Townsend on a busy weekend in late July. There was a blues festival at Fort Worden and it was tough to get a hotel room! My favorites were full so I gave the Swan a try. And I was glad I did. While not a historic building or blessed with a killer view, it was clean,... More

We reserved a "Deluxe Suite." I'm not sure why it was deluxe, or why it was a suite. It was a standard room, small, with queen bed, with a standard, small, bathroom. That said, it was a pleasant stay. The room furnishings are tasteful and comfortable. Quiet: we were on the ground floor, and did not hear any noise from... More

This place is such a gem. The penthouse was perfect for my family of six. I almost don't want to gush too much because it'll be harder to get reservations. The place was spotless.

We stayed in a cottage, perfectly suited for two people. The layout was functional and cozy with enough room for making tea and preparing foodstuffs.
