My husband and I spent one night at Hammersley B & B in Shelton this week and absolutely loved it. I first read the ratings here on TA and wanted a place to celebrate our anniversary while on our way to the beach. This place far exceeded our expectations. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the drive and price. The location on an arm of Puget Sound is gorgeous, the grounds lovely, and the home redefines B & B. Owners Phil and Kelly have outdone themselves creating a luxurious retreat with decor right out of a magazine. From the moment we arrived, when Phil greeted us at the door and helped carry in our luggage, until we left, we were welcomed like friends. The 4 rooms are all large with full baths, and all have balconies with a view of the waterfront. There were fresh flowers in our room, and some special treats in honor of our anniversary. There's a basement with pool table and fooseball, and a movie room with lots of DVDs. The whole feel of the place is like a modern, open lodge, with a huge stone fireplace and one of the largest kitchens I've seen (it has two islands). The breakfast was wonderful with yummy muffins, fresh fruit yogurt parfait, and individually baked breakfast casseroles. We ate while looking out on the sound, watching seals swim by.
We've stayed at other B & B's, which are generally in older homes with small bedrooms and maybe a shared bath. This place redefines the concept. We'll definitely be recommending Hammersley to our friends and family, and hope to return. I just wish we could have stayed another evening.
