“Wonderful place to be on July 4!”
Reviewed 24 October 2010

My wife, daughter and son in law stayed for three nights in early July. It was a great base from which to explore the northern penninsula. Dan and Janet were delightful hosts - very knowledgable sources of information as we planned our daily excursions and they gracefully tolerated of our coming in late from those excursions were prolonged.
Dan led us up to the cupola atop the roof on the night of July 4. There are windows on all sides so it was the perfect place to see the numerous small fireworks displays that take place in that part of our country. For the better part of an hour we watched them pop in and out of view in every landward direction. I've been around for close to six decades and watching grassroots fireworks from the top of an exact replica of Mount Vernon is on my short list of best ways to celebrate the 4th of July.

Stayed July 2010, travelled with family

This bed and breakfast was the absolute perfect place to relax after a very busy day of travel. It would not be possible to say enough nice things about the inn keepers as well as the inn, service, breakfast, views, etc. My husband and I are already planning a trip back as soon as possible. The breakfast was incredible! The entire place was immaculate, inside and out. We have absolutely NO complaints, and would recommend this place to anyone! Can't wait to go back!

We arrived early (about 2:30pm). Our hostess opened the door and stood blocking it. She told us the rooms were not ready. She was abrupt, bordering on rude. She did not invite us in to relax while the rooms where prepared. She did not introduce herself. There were NO cars there, no other guests, and the place is huge, with enough room for an early guest to lounge around and relax. When my husband asked to go to the bathroom, she finally let us in to the lobby and hovered around. She grudgingly offered us coffee AFTER about 10 minutes. She was the OPPOSITE of welcoming. We left and returned about 2 hours later She was significantly changed. Now, she welcomed us and explained about the keys and took us to our suite. She did NOT give a tour but pointed rooms/areas out instead. The suite was beautiful, but frankly our bedrrooom set is more expensive and the bathroom was poorly arranged. The view was awesome, the breakfast was good. The price was WAY TOO MUCH. I have traveled extensively both in the US and abroad. I have stayed in pensiones, B&B's and 5 star hotels. I was apalled at the price compared to the sevice/rooms. I have paid $500 per night in the past and loved it. Frankly, however, the whole experience was simply not worth $300 per night.

DanAbbott, Owner at George Washington Inn, responded to this review, 22 September 2010
"Thank you for reviewing GWI. All guests' comments are important to us, and afford us the opportunity to grow.

Innkeeping is a 24/7 responsibility. The short period of time between check-out and check-in is a flurry of activity as common areas and guest rooms are cleaned, laundry is done, and the inn is made ready for arriving and returning guests. Depending on how many rooms need to be turned and how much needs to be done in each room, it may require every minute of that short period of time. When these guests arrived early, the room was not ready. We graciously offered to hold their luggage while they did some sightseeing, we offered a cup of coffee (which was declined), and we offered to suggest things they might want to do in the area until check-in. However, since we were still cleaning common areas as well as rooms, we could not offer a quiet place for them to come in and relax. It was obvious that they were displeased, but perhaps they didn't realize all that we still needed to accomplish before 4:00. We made every effort throughout the remainder of their stay to make it a pleasant and enjoyable weekend.

If you want the ultimate in elegance inside and stunning scenery outside this is the place to stay. From the moment you enter through the front door it is a 'wow' experience and the rooms do not disappoint . We were fortunate enough to see a gray whale from the balcony at the back of the house and then from the grounds themselves overlooking the straits.

I would absolutely recommend staying here if you can and if you are traveling around and looking for a similar standard take a look at 'A Lighthouse on Hammersley' - I'm sure there are more Band Bs of this standard but for us these two were just outstanding .

Port Angeles is an ideal spot to endeavour the Olympic Peninsulaand the San Juan Islands, or Vancouver Island. And the the George Washington Inn is an ideal focal point, without many comparable alternatives in the area. This was simply one of the best B&B experiences we encountered in the U.S., primarily attributed to the hospitality offered by Janet & Dan, and - of course - the reference to The Father of the Nation: Perfect service, a fantastic room with great views (including watching deer during breakfast). Similar to some other great locations the inn keepers reduce your choices to yes or no - and adaptability helps tremendously to improve the experience. If you're looking for an opportunity to learn about the general, this is an excellent place to be, and we'll certainly return.

The only possible area of improvement, not attributed to the Inn but to the surroundings: There's no restaurant close by which would match quality, friendliness, and service capabilities of the Inn.

A replica of George Washington's Mt. Vernon finished in 2008 on the bank of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This is a wonderful place to stay. The hosts were helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were plentiful, quite tasty, and unique. The rooms, and the entire house, are extremely clean and well furnished down to a pair of binoculars for use during your stay. The king bed we had was very comfortable. My wife and I liked the accommodations so much that we extended our stay. This is one of those few B&B's that is brand new with all the modern amenities but with the colonial charm of George Washington's home. I would highly recommend this brand new inn for your stay on the Olympic Peninsula.

This place was designed to look like Mount Vernon. However, it is very modern and efficient. Great rooms, lovely baths and the innkeepers are pleasant Wonderful view of the Straits of Juan de Fuca. A great place to stay if you are doing the Olympic Peninsula Loop.
