“Bay Cottage Perfection”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

It will be difficult to improve on the experience available at Bay Cottages in Port Townsend. The peaceful setting, intimate closeness of Discovery Bay and the friendliness of the proprietor make this a rare treat. You are on the water here, tuned to the tides and the rhythms of the life in and around the bay. The lodging is charming, with tasteful, carefully chosen decorations and utilities.

Room Tip: The cottages are best for couples while the apartment in the main house is for larger groups, perhap...

The cottage and the waterfront access were charming and the perfect retreat for any length vacation. The cottage, which was one of two on the property had a full kitchen that the proprietor stocked with just the right equipment for cooking or just enjoying morning coffee and orange juice, which he has waiting for his guests. Another great touch are his chocolate chip cookies and strawberries and sherry for a nightcap to enjoy on the small porch outside the master bedroom. There is a gorgeous patio overseeing the water outside the main house that has tables, adirondacks and a firepit to enjoy morning coffee or the sunset after a walk on the beach. The beach access is right off the house and has a direct ten mile route to Port Townsend for an ambitious runner. The proximity to Port Townsend, Chimacum Corner (the local farmstand) and Finnriver cidery are an indispensable part of this treasure of a retreat. The website for this property does not nearly capture the charm of this gem.

Room Tip: Three places on the property to stay; a large cabin with two bedrooms and full kitchen, a smaller ca...

The cottage is a 1930s style cottage with a southern facing set of windows and deck. It looks out over Discovery Bay. Although the age of the cottage is obvious with crooked floors and gaps here and there under doors, it still has a charm of it's own. The location is perfect if one likes quiet and privacy. The beach access is readily available and one can walk (or run) for miles and see beautiful scenery and even some wildlife (we saw river otters playing on the beach and a bald eagle). Ed, the caretaker/owner is extremely accommodating and goes out of his way to be helpful. Although the place could be a little cleaner in the more out of the way corners and on certain walls, the most important places were clean. Since there were 4 of us we were in the larger Bay Cottage, but Jenny's Cottage (a little closer to the beach) would have the better view and seemed a bit nicer.

Room Tip: Don't worry about all of the "no parking" signs from the place next door. There are tw...
