Would you like to fall asleep lulled by the sound of the waves? The Commander's Beach House is located right on a sandy beach near the Point Hudson Marina and within three blocks of the shops and restaurants in downtown Port Townsend. Hike our beach to Fort Worden and explore the Marine Science Center or visit the Point Wilson Lighthouse. A short stroll will bring you to the beautiful rose and seasonal gardens of Chetzemoka Park or the marina, filled with classic wooden boats. If you prefer, explore the tidepools on our beach at low tide, hunt for agates and wishing rocks or launch your kayak and paddle in to town. The Commander's Beach House is a Cape Cod style home built in 1934. Until 1955 it housed several commanding officers and their families that were stationed at the nearby medical facility. The Commander's Beach House has been an operational bed and breakfast for seven years and provides a relaxing escape for those who truly want to experience a home on the beach.

Our first B&B experience and it did not disappoint. This was by far the better choice over any motel/hotel. Great oceanside location. Listening to the waves lapping the shore all day/night. Easy walk to the historic downtown area. Gail provided a very tasty and memorable breakfast. Many extras provided insured genuine comfort and relaxation. Looking forward to our next visit.

Terrific days spent at the Commanders: great room with fine bed and linens, super-friendly gracious & generous innkeepers, easy to walk to all stores and restaurants, wonderful gardens, grounds, and beach walks ... definitely want to go back and enjoy the [only (?)] hottub in Port Townsend b&b's.

Gail & Jim and Captain Cutter (our mellow yellow lab)
Gail is an avid kayaker, and loves to be on the water. Gail sets crab pots in the summer and guests are often treated to fresh Dungeness crab!! Jim has binoculars and a spotting scope and loves to keep track of the marine traffic which passes by.

Our food is all prepared with fresh regional products, often purchased at our local summer farmer's market. The meal starts with seasonal fruit garnished with homemade flavored creme fraiche or yogurt. The Seafood Souffle is a delicious blend of crab, shrimp amd mild white fish seasoned with lemon and dill and topped with a cheesy white sauce. Potatoes, roasted with sprigs from our resident Rosemary bush, and freshly baked fruit breads, muffins, or scones accompany the meal.
