“Great Place to stay in Port Townsend!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

After spending a full week in 3 other rental locations in Port Townsend we found the Suite at the Fountain and have never looked back! The apartment is quiet, spacious and very well appointed. If you love to cook and sip wine you'll find everything you need in the kitchen. Nice large deck with barbecue and outdoor table and chairs - totally private - even though you're smack dab in the middle of downtown. It's also the little things, like fresh flowers on the table when you arrive, lovely locally made lotion and soap and an added bonus of having 2 bicycles available. It's the perfect spot to walk to venues where you'll find great music and dining, especially with the many music festivals that are held in the area. Sheila and Dave are really nice people and we always feel welcome when we arrive. Highly recommend a stay at the Fountain!

A Suite at the Fountain's website describes the apartment as "quiet, spacious, modern, comfortable -- with all of Port Townsend's amenities within walking distance," and that's exactly what we found to be true when we stayed there for five nights recently. Trust the photos on their website -- no "creative license" or "enhanced" photography here.

The location is great not only because everything is within easy walking distance, but because the suite rests in a pastoral setting with a wooded hillside and a beautiful little park just outside the door. Sitting on the large deck, you'll have a hard time believing that you're right in the middle of a city. And yes, despite being in the middle of Port Townsend, it's so quiet that you'll never have to worry about getting a good night's sleep.

The apartment is neat, clean, and well furnished. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen large and well equipped. Although we didn't use it, the wood-burning stove would be a treat on a colder night. Water pressure and water temperature in the bathroom leave nothing to be desired.

In the interest of full disclosure, anyone who has difficulty navigating stairs may want to give the suite a miss because you have to go up about 15 of them to get to the apartment. Of course most will find the stairs no obstacle whatsoever.

Last but not least, Sheila and Dave are wonderful people to work with. They take their role as hosts very seriously and are dedicated to making their guests feel right at home. We wouldn't hesitate for a moment to stay here again on a return trip to Port Townsend.

We spent three nights at The Suite at the Fountain and loved it. It worked perfectly for us, two separate rooms a kitchen and lovely living room as well as outside decking. The suite was very well equipped and Shiela even gave me keys so I could use the laundry room outside office hours. It is in a superb location right across from some lovely restaurants and the The Rose Theatre. We really enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to others. The only slight issue is the fridge should be replaced as although it was spotlessly clean it shows its ages and lets the place down ever so slightly!! We loved the place, a very special wee haven and Shiela & Dave were so generous with their tips and recommendations. A definite winner in Port Townsend!!!

Right downtown yet it feels as if you're in a secluded park! Looking out our windows we saw lush green ivy on the deck with trees on two sides. Wonderfully relaxing. So nice to have a kitchen and fridge for leftovers and snacks (and breakfast when you don't want to rush out). The furnishings are tasteful. It could not have been better!!! We walked up the steps at the fountain and then 3 blocks to Aldrich's market (local grocery/produce/soup bar/sushi), Pan d'Amore bakery (wow), Sweet Laurette's Café (coffee & food to die for). One block from the apartment is the Writer's Workshoppe bookstore (excellent) and the Alchemy Wine Bar (where we heard classical guitar). Our favorite restaurant in the world (that we both enjoy): Khu Larb Thai is less than 2 blocks away. Our favorite functional art gallery is within 4 blocks: Earthenworks. We loved it! We'll be back!

We spent 3 nights. Sheila and Dave were amazing hosts - accessible, helpful, had all the local knowledge and useful tips and ideas to make our stay very enjoyable. The suite is very quiet - which surprised us because it is also right downtown, within walking distance of everything you could think of (e.g. Bakery!!). Kitchen was well equiped. Extra pillows, towels, etc. available. LOVED the patio for morning coffee overlooking the sculpture garden. You'd never guess you were downtown with all the lusch greenery. Great pubs and restaurants are very close-by, but we had zero noise from them.

The suite was designed and decorated in the '70s, and has been lovingly maintained. Everything is very comfortable and there are plenty of useful modern features / upgrades (e.g. newer wood-burning fireplace). So nothing's missing that you may need or want.
