“oceanside getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

From the moment we turned onto the gravel driveway down to the main house, we knew this was going to be a wonderful place to stay while we explored the area. Ed, our host, was gracious and inviting, with the cookies and strawberries adding to the welcome. The cottage in the main house was quaint and unplugged, with a rustic charm befitting a home built in the 30's. The beach was amazing and you could walk for miles looking for shells, ocean glass and other treasures. Sitting on the patio in the afternoon with a book or good conversation while listening to the ocean was very relaxing. We truly enjoyed our stay at Bay Cottage and would definitely return for a future stay.

Room Tip: Jenny's cottage is a very nice cottage for a small family

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Bay Cottage. With its quiet and peaceful setting. We loved walking on the beach. Which happens to be private. You can walk for miles and treasure hunt. (sand dollars everywhere).
The owner Ed was great. He was very accommodating and friendly. We will plan another trip back to Discovery Bay next year.
Thank you Ed:)

What a disappointment. Horrible smell, probably from mold mostly hidden under bulging white panels apparently glued to the ceiling. Apparently furnished with Goodwill rejects. Dirty, including a nice collection of dead flies on the window sills. No screens on windows. Impractical shower. And no wifi, although Ed claims there is some spot elsewhere on the property when there are 'four bars'.

Left early, without being reimbursed for last two nights and found a nice hotel room in Port Angeles for less cost.

I don't know who actually writes the other reviews, but be warned.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

We spent two nights in the Seaside Cottage and truly enjoyed our stay. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. There were many small things that made us feel really welcome: a hand-written letter after our reservation with information about our upcoming visit, fresh strawberries and cookies in the cottage, as well as coffee, sherry, and several other things. The location is wonderful.

From the moment we opened the door to this cottage, we were charmed by the magic of this setting. The cottage is delightfully "unplugged" - no need for TV or any other "entertainment" a peace filled place indeed. The Bay is gorgeous & walkable, the nights are quiet. The host is a
wonderful blend of friendly, yet gave us our privacy. We will return. Margaret/tribeoftiger NC

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...
