We've visited Mt. Vernon in Virginia five times and this B&B is a near-exact replica of it--except for electricity and TV. This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. The view is breath-taking, and this is a PERFECT place. Probably the best place that I've ever stayed, and it was worth every penny. My wife and I loved sitting on the quiet back porch and watching the sun set. The lawn is perfectly manicured and this place is spotless. This is a very special place with more than enough stuff to make you think this is a recreation of the real Mt. Vernon on the other coast. For the first time in about five years, I had the time to read a book, which I borrowed from the extensive library at this inn. The hostess worked hard to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The morning breakfasts were incredible. This is one of the best-kept secrets that we've found. We are counting down the days until we can stay again at this wonderful find.

Room Tip: We had the smallest room, the Surveyor Room, but it was more than big enough for the two of us. And...

Green Features: They use some type of geothermal system for heating, I think.

We stayed here for 3 nights for our 42nd anniversary, and we could not have been more pleased with our B&B choice. Dan and Janet were gracious hosts - very patient and helpful, and always ready with a smile. Our room was large, comfortable and spotless, with a pleasant "virtual" fireplace and beautiful views of the mountains and the lavender fields. The lavender store was fun to visit, and we enjoyed having Dan describe his oil still and his work distilling lavender and pine. Breakfasts were quite special with fantastic food items and great views of the water and Canada. We have stayed in many B&B's both in the US and abroad, and this is easily the best of the bunch. Our next visit is in the planning stages!

We stayed here for 3 nights during our tour of Olympic National Park. My partner and I had a fantastic time on this trip, and we attribute that largely to the quality of the George Washington Inn. We are extremely seasoned travelers, and we felt a singular sadness in leaving that we have not felt for many properties before or since.

Pros:
The rooms are capacious and elegantly decorated. The Inn is quite large, but only has a few rooms. As a result, each room is allocated plenty of space.

The views from our room were gorgeous--the Inn's lavender fields from the front window, the water of the sound (?) from the back window.

The bathtub was seriously unparalleled. After hard days of hiking, the jets in our private tub were a lovely way to end the day.

The breakfasts were lovingly prepared and uniformly delicious. It felt like Christmas waking up in the morning and wondering what Dan had in store that morning.

Cons:
The fireplace in the room is not an actual fireplace per se. It is a sort of hologram of flames that comes with a heating vent above it that blows hot air. Besides the general qualm of a 'fake' fireplace, the vent was placed such that it was hard to feel any substantial warmth when the fireplace was turned on.

We stayed at the Inn for 3 nights on our August vacation to Olympic National Park. The innkeepers were very cordial and helpful, showing us around the property once we arrived and greeting us at breakfast every morning. The grounds are beautiful, complete with a large balcony back porch right outside of your room. Coffee, cookies, and tea were available 24/7, and a small fridge was in our room. We stayed in the Surveyor's Retreat, which was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was served each day on the back porch overlooking the water, and it had a unique twist each day. The strawberry and rhubarb french toast and cinnamon rolls were fantastic.

We didn't know what to expect just by looking at pictures and reading other people's reviews. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised not only that the inn lives up to the expectations but exceeds them. It's clean, and peaceful, and quiet, and inviting and I could go on and on. Martha and her husband (sorry I forgot his name) give you this "homey" filling and you truly feel like you belong there. The room and bathroom were extremely clean, the view is amazing and breakfast.....well....that in itself is a treat. If they have the apple soup please don't pass it up, it's amazing.
I would go back any chance I have.
If I could make one suggestion to the owners would be to offer diner so you don't have to leave this place while you are there.

Room Tip: Ask for the room that allows you access to both verandas

This is just a beautiful, beautiful setting. Lavender fields, other flowers, back deck looking out over the Strait toward Victoria, then out the front toward the snow-capped Olympic Range -- all took our breath away. Wonderful breakfasts. Very fascinating place, recently built as a loving recreation of Mt. Vernon. Unfortunately, we spent most of our time up in the National Park, so we didn't get enough time to just kick back and enjoy the surroundings there at the Inn.
