We were on a trip part of which covered the territory from Port Townsend along 101 down to the Oregon coast and beyond. We wanted a place to stay close to Rialto beach and the Miller Tree seemed to be about right for us. And, it was. A place has to be clean and our room and bathroom was very clean and inviting. The location is a bit off the main street (101) in town, but rather easy to find directly down a side street.
We were greeted by a very friendly host who showed us the inn and explained how it works. There is a porch, a parlor (living room) and two rooms with tables for breakfast – one is the main one but there is an adjacent room in case extra space is needed. The breakfast area has a continuous supply of many kinds of packaged snacks – peanuts, other nuts, granola bars, cookies, etc. The rooms have a small refrigerator that is lightly stocked with soda and small cans of juice. These goodies are free for the taking if you are a guest. There are a variety of rooms, with kings, twins, etc. and most if not all have en suite bathrooms. I recall a total of 8 rooms – some of which are not in the main house. We stayed in the sunset room, which is one of the lower priced rooms, but with its king and bathroom was fully adequate. It faces west. I think all rooms have a TV and a dvd player. Ours did, but we did not use them. At least a couple of the rooms have gas fireplaces (which might be nice if you visit in colder weather).
Our bed was very comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom had good towels and the shower (separated from the toilet and sink – very useful) worked well. The rooms in the inn tend to be filled with various things – things on shelves, things on the walls. These are not an intrusion and not in the way, but if one had to find a single word it might be the word cluttered. This over states it, but does cover the base. Breakfasts are rather nice and offer plenty to eat. In addition to a hot breakfast, there is a selection of cereals that one can have instead or in addition.
All in all, this is a friendly place where the host and hostess make it clear that they want you to be happy. The host knows all sorts of things about the area and will give you any advice you seek. He will also make local calls to check things out for you - e.g. is that restaurant you might want to try actually serving salmon tonight. There is adequate off-street parking. We would not hesitate to stop again when we pass by Forks. [PS: apparently they have a cat that does not enter the guest rooms. We did not see it.]
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Three-story 1916 farm house, located on the edge of town. 8 guest rooms each have a private bath, TV/DVD player and free WiFi access. 3 of these rooms have a whirlpool tub and gas fireplace. A full, hot, sit-down breakfast is included in the room rates. The inn serves as a base to explore the west side of Olympic National Park, including the Hoh Rain Forest (45 minutes away) and the Pacific Ocean at LaPush and Rialto Beach (20 minutes away). Recently, it has become a stand-in for the Cullen House, on tours exploring sites mentioned in Stephenie Meyers' "Twilight" book saga. However, our inn looks nothing like the Hollywood version, which is located in Portland, OR. ... more less
