We stayed in the larger of the two suites for 3 nights. There aren't a lot of choices in Port Townsend for families, but this worked out great for us. Our kids are older (10 and 13 at the time); the owner did tell us the property wasn't welI-suited for younger kids because of the balcony. I really wanted something with a view and this one was fantastic.
The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for a family of four. We were also able to take our small dog, with the caveat that she couldn't be there by herself. There was a decent-sized kitchen with a table, along with a separate sitting room. Only downside was that we had to buy our own paper towels and dishwashing soap because there was none on arrival and the owner was out at the time we discovered this.
Don't expect 5-star luxury but everything was very clean and the location was not too far from town. We drove to downtown because of the hill but if you want some exercise, you could walk. Although the owner lives downstairs, she was not intrusive. We enjoyed our stay and would return.
