Headed up to Port Townsend for a recuperative weekend with my wife and could not have found a more relaxing and rejuvenating place than The Commanders Beach House located right on the water at Point Hudson Marina. Consummate hosts Jim & Gail both made us feel like we were part of their family and catered to our every whim without being ever-present. Jim, the resident raconteur, who is hysterical and has the town wired, was able to provide suggestions and/or reservations if need be, for any activity imaginable. Gail’s breakfasts were spectacular. The nights were punctuated by rolling waves and the distant sound of sea buoys that lulled us throughout the evenings on incredibly comfortable beds. Get up early and watch the breathtaking sunrise over Whidbey Island. Grab the Lighthouse room if available for unmatched views.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Commander's Beach House is the only bed and breakfast that is located right on the water in downtown Port Townsend. You can walk on the beach to Fort Worden or easily stroll three blocks along the water front to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. Three of our rooms face the water and have private baths. Our fourth room faces the garden and has a shared bath located inside of the room. You can enjoy views of Admiralty Inlet, Mt. Baker, Whidbey Island, all of the boats and ships that go into Seattle, as well as vintage wooden schooners and yawls. Eagles, herons, otters and seals are frequently seen by our guests. A full sit down gourmet breakfast is served at individual tables or on our veranda, weather permitting. Come fall asleep lulled by the sounds of the sea and "relax and solve nothing"! ... more less
