Historic home situated at the heart of the North Olympic Peninsula in Washington state, at the gateway entrance to the Olympic National Park and to the international ferry terminal to Victoria, B.C. Port Angeles has a temperate, marine climate with mild temperatures and is sheltered by the Olympic rain shadow (average annual precipitation of 22-25 inches). These factors make the location of this B&B attractive year round. Off-season travelers from larger regional markets of Seattle, Portland, OR and British Columbia supplement summer tourism revenue. Annually, over 4 million people visit the nearby Olympic National Park; most stay several days or longer and many return.
This is the perfect opportunity to live, play and work in one of the most scenic places in the country. It's all here for you and your guests. Port Angeles has been named #5 in the Top 10 Small Towns, 2014 by Livability.com, a national website that ranks quality of life and travel amenities of America’s small to mid-sized cities.
"Port Angeles’ highly ranked natural amenities, low food costs, low crime and high community involvement help make the city one of the nation's best places to live and visit, especially for crab lovers. Sculptures, murals and other artwork found downtown help tie modern-day Port Angeles to its past as an outpost in the Pacific Northwest, a logging town and home for Native Americans. The downtown area overlooks the bay and is filled with cafes, galleries, gift shops, bookstores and restaurants.
A stroll along City Pier in downtown, provides fantastic views of this city's major attractions. To the north is the Strait of Juan de Fuca, where massive ships float by carrying lumber and cargo while smaller vessels bring fresh-caught crabs to the docks and kayakers paddle around a sandy beach. Looking south offers a glimpse of the snowcapped mountains in Olympic National Park, a pristine playground for hikers, bikers and skiers. It's easy to see that residents of this small town have plenty of choices when it comes to having fun and getting exercise."
Hiking, beachcombing, fishing, sailing, boating, wonderful award winning wineries, gourmet restaurants, fresh air, sunshine, clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and the year-round lush green of the forest. Port Angeles is just two hours from Seattle and 1 1/2 hours from Victoria, B.C. It is the largest city on the Olympic Peninsula with Peninsula College, a regional hospital, a deepwater harbor and a US Coast Guard base. The B&B is located just 11 blocks (.5 mile) from the Olympic Discovery Trail that parallels the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Mt. Angeles and the Olympic National Park are just minutes away.
