We hopped in the car on the Thursday after Christmas and decided to just get away for an overnight . . . somewhere! We ended up in Port Townsend and just picked this B & B in the dark, on a whim. So not me! However, we were not disappointed! Decorated for Christmas, it was inviting and warm, We stayed in the Renaissance Room and it was spacious and lovely! The bathroom was stocked with fluffy towels and local soaps and lotion - and not the sample size, either! The queen size bed was very comfy. Breakfast was wonderful! It was delicious and there was a full table of guests. We enjoyed visiting with everyone and only wish we had more time to spend there! Now that we have had a taste, we will be back! So, what are you waiting for? Get that reservation made. You need to see for yourself! Thank you, Nathan and Cindy!
