morning with sunrise photos begging to be taken & then a delicious
 breakfast....your attention to detail is wonderful!! Blessings on you,

What an amazing festival! The boats, the workshops, the weather could not have been better!!!
Dancing till midnight to the great bands was such a treat. And the food... Lopez Isl. Creamery ice
cream, fish tacos, paella, great curries and wonderful salmon. Yum!! The hospitality at the Commander's
 Beach House is always the best and what a great spot to watch the sail by from. We will be back...again
and again....

Gail & Jim---What a lovely three days we had here with a setting to die for, wonderful
breakfasts, and gracious hosts. Thanks for a first time visit that I hope won't be the last!.
We loved our little dinner on your lawn and of course, sitting at near midnight in the chairs
 on a warm clear August night, viewing a golden moon shining on the water, and looking at
tars with the sound of waves lapping the shore. It doesn't get better than that!

It's been said before, "A lovely piece of paradise". Salt air, seagull cries,

Paradise on the beach

This is a fantastic location for anyone who enjoys strolling on the miles of beach
that adjoin this property just minutes away from downtown Port Townsend. The
 host and hostess are enthusiastic about making one's stay comfortable whether it be
relaxing on the waterfront lawn chairs or settling in to their B and B. There are lots of
 interesting things to do nearby, visiting the Maritime Centre, learning the historical
 aspects of the former Quarantine Station, or just watching the action in the boatyard.
 One starts the day with a great breakfast in the Commander's House and ends it with a
 super meal at the nearby restaurant on the waterfront, just a three minute walk. Highly
recommend this B and B!!!!!!!!!!!

SNOW in Port Townsend!! But some sun, some rain, wind, calm...a bit of everything for a perfectly wonderful
 visit in the Island View Room. We had everything we could have wanted and then some! We loved our stay here. Thanks for great hospitality and good suggestions for places to eat and things to see. We hope to return again.
