About the neighbourhood
Described as an 'Oasis in Time', the Fairmount Beach House is perched on the edge of Discovery Bay, only 15 minutes from Port Townsend. One of 3 historic seaports in the U.S., Port Townsend is known for its fine Victorian Architecture and small town charm. Located in the 'rain shadow' of the Olympic Mountains, the area averages only 17 inches of rain a year. The beach house is less than an hour from the Olympic National Park, Olympic Game Farm, Victoria, B.C. ferry, Kingston and Bainbridge Island ferries. Visit Troll Haven or Seven Cedars Casino, just minutes away. Fort Worden State Park (the site of the filming of 'An Officer and a Gentleman'), boasts beautiful sandy beaches, hiking trails, lighthouse, bunkers and plenty of history.
