A Lighthouse on Hammersley Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Shelton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2011

Lucked into finding this B and B on Trip Advisor. I don't think I've ever seen a place with all 50+ reveiws that were 5 out of 5, but now I understand why.

First, the setting is spectacular. We brought our kayaks to go up and down Hammersley Inlet (it's pretty easy - time it right and the tide does most of the work), and thought that staying at a B and B would be a fun way to do that. The house is right on the water, on a low bank. We saw seals, and while kayaking we saw blue heron and a lynx or some other large wild cat species.

The house is spectacular. The innkeepers - Phil and Kelly - built it themselves 5 years ago as a B and B. Huge entry area, great living room with river rock fireplace, a library, and downstairs there's a huge theater room and a game room, a small fitness center, and a bar to use (they don't serve alcohol of course but you can bring your own). The kitchen is an open plan and just huge - two islands. It's not for guests, of course, but it's very attractive. They have also situated several eating areas inside and outside the house, so if you want privacy you've got it, plus several areas for relaxing inside and out.

Loved the huge huge room with private bath. They have 4 rooms the rent, and the innkeeper's private area is on the other side of the house and out of the way, so you don't feel at all like you are intruding as can happen at B and Bs.

Another nice surprise was breakfast. It's a full breakfast and very tasty, and different each day. And of course the beautiful setting just adds to that.

Phil and Kelly went out of their way to make you feel welcome and kept inquiring if there was anything they could do for us. Nice folks and great hosts.

While staying there we kayaked out to Hope Island, which was fun, went to the Mason County Fair which was small and rural and great, hit the Saturday Farmer's Market, and enjoyed outstanding beer soup and beers at the Grove Street Brew House. But really the best part was just hanging out at the house and watching the world go by on the inlet.

We look forward to a return trip!

What an awesome gem. This B&B was a modern and up to date place. It is absolutely Beautifull inside and outside. The grounds in the back faces Hammersley Inlet and it is a beautiful site. We stayed in the Hawaiin room. It was comfortable and roomy with a privagte bath and sliding door to the deck out back and a georgous view of the inlet. It was piecefull and very relaxing. The host's Phil & Kelly are the most personable & friendly I have encountered at a B&B. They are not just good hosts but great people. The details they have put into the place and the service they provide makes you feel like you are part of the family. I can't say enough about how much my wife and I and my sister & brother in-law just loved it. This is a five star place. We are coming back soon for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Perfect, relaxing, and pieceful experience.

We just returned from an overnight stay at this delightful B&B - our hosts, Phil & Kelly, were warm and welcoming - and the inn itself is awesome!! It is spacious (over 10,000 sq ft) with a light and airy feel - more modern in design than any other B&B we've visited - there are four guestrooms (2 upstairs and 2 down) plus a lower floor with workout room, pool table and bigscreen movie viewing - we stayed in the Zen room - beautiful - the inn sits on a huge lot on the water with lots of areas to just sit and watch the boats go by, relax and maybe catch sight of some deer - Kelly's food was not only delicious but artfully prepared (with the help of hubby Phil) - her marionberry scones were heavenly and the Canadian bacon crusted quiche with brie and parmesan was to die for - this inn is a tribute to their love of people and entertaining and was truly a labor of love in the design, building and furnishing - we cannot recommend their hospitality nor their home highly enough!!!

We wanted to stay in a place that was close to take a trip to the Olympic National Park, but after getting to Phil and Kelly's B&B we did not need to go anywhere.

First of all the service was amazing. The hosts made you feel very comfortable, and the house was beyond all expectations. My daughter who was along with us on the trip said that Hammersley Bay part of our trip would be the highlight of our 2 week vacation.

The room was perfect. We were in the Captains Quarters...it had a king bed and a fold out single. All the rooms have a view of the bay which is a real plus. And it was clean which is my number one concern. All the rooms are decorated with Kelly's special touch. And my favorite area was the barstools looking into the kitchen. The plan of the house is open so you never feel cramped.

Highlights were: the breakfast in the morning, the putt putt golf area, walking when the tide was down on the shore, gazing out to the bay and the most wonderful hosts.

The house was amazing. It exceeded our expectations. Phil and Kelly are naturals at hosting and making you feel welcome.

My wife and I were " last minute" seaching for a unique way to celebrate our 4th aniversary when we came across the lighthouse on hammersley web site.
At first we thought. After studying their site. This is too good to be true. But we were in a pinch to find a location. So we decided to give them a try. We were not dissapointed. The place was FANTASTIC!!!. Everything they advertised and more.
Phil and Kelly were the ultimate hosts, They thought of everything. They even had a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. The facility was clean with plenty of space for Private conversation (if alone time is what you desire).
The breakfast menu was home cooked and varied daily. The setting was waterfront and came complete with a local seal population.
This was the perfect way to spend an intimate event with the one I love most. In our book there is no other B&B that compares. At any price. We're so glad we found you. We will be back. Thank you Phil and Kelley for a most gratifying experience.

Phil and Kelly are the gracious owners of the Lighthouse on Hammersley. From the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome and relaxed. This is a very spacious B&B that is decorated immaculately. The accomodations are roomy and comfortable and we had a wonderful view from our deck. The whole house has a very nice open feeling that makes it all the more inviting. We enjoyed a quiet evening in the theater on the lower level and could have played ping-pong had we not been so relaxed. Our breakfast was amazing! The grounds are beautiful with plenty to enjoy no matter what time of year you visit. This was a wonderful place to "get away from it all" and we are looking forward to our next visit, Lord willing. We highly recommend "A Lighthouse on Hammersley" for your next B&B adventure.

Room Tip: King bed = Captain's Quarters!!!
