My wife surprised me with a weekend getaway at the George Washington Inn. It exceeded any expectation I had with amazing views, hospitality and touch of history. We booked the same room for next year and am looking forward to it already!
Very unique property. We stayed in October, well after the bustling lavender season. It was quiet and offered a meditative environment (which I needed) with the beautiful view of the mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca. We loved it so much that we made the next reservation on the way out. Looking forward to going back in different season.
History and hoteliery are happily married here; we stayed in the presidential suite and received a royal treatment. Fronting the expansive waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Inn is a faithful replica of the first US president's home in Mount Vernon on the Potomac. References to George Washington's life and career throughout the lodge may at times feel too much and be overwhelming, but the attention to historical detail and accuracy cannot be faulted. In fact, there is no fault to be found in the accommodations anywhere: a gourmet breakfast every morning, hosts eager to satisfy your every need and wish, peace and quiet around the clock. A perfect 18th-century place to unwind from the hectic and stressful life in the 21st century. We need to add a comment on the rating score above: we wanted to give "outstanding" to all categories but the fifth button would not click on; obviously a website design flaw!
We stayed at Lost Mountain Lodge for a week, using it as a base to explore the Olympic Peninsula. The Moonbeam suite is a large, nicely decorated room with lots of chairs and a very comfortable bed. There was a fireplace (that we didn't need in the summer) but which added to the sense of comfort. Breakfasts were amazing with different servings each morning. Lots of veggies and fresh fruit plus the option of gluten-free bread. Snacks, soft drinks and water were always available. The grounds are lovely with lots of room to walk and smell the lavender. Everyone working there was generous and helpful. Thank you Dwight, Kathy, Jen and Sophia! We'll be back.
We had a great time at the Greenhouse - wonderful room with a great view of the bay - Craig and Michelle are very welcoming and helpful - breakfast was great both days. Highly recommend a relaxing stay here.
Our stay at the Sea Cliff B&B was one of the most enjoyable stays. The owners are a delight and so accommodating to your needs. The home and setting is just outstanding and if you are looking for a lovely and relaxing place to stay you come to the right place.
Having been to the George Washington Inn twice before but never staying there overnight I already had some pretty high expectations. I'd met and talked to the people, seen the property and already knew this place was special. You just don't understand how really big the rooms are until you've stayed in one. You don't know how really classy the breakfast is until you've sat at one. And without being heavy that breakfast is going to hold you a while. A brief conversation with Dan and Janet while you are in the gift shop isn't going to show how charming and genuine the owners are. You've got to walk the grounds for an hour to really experience how majestic and relaxing it is and don't forget there is wildlife. In the mornings and evenings we got very good looks at deer and eagles every day. Not glimpses, they would walk or fly through as if it's their home (and it is.) We spent the Lavender Festival weekend at the George Washington Inn and at this point I doubt there is any better way to do it. We attended the street fair and farmers market one day and when the crowds became too much returned to the peace of the inn. One day except dinner we did nothing but "be at the inn." We met the charming vendors who come to the inn for the festival, sat and listened to various musical groups they hosted ranging from Country to woodwinds to piano soloists. There were educational opportunities seeing how they extract the essential oils from the lavender, bee keeping demonstrations cooking with lavender and how they roast their signature coffee. They also had a craft area where children (and moms) could craft using lavender. To call it a five star experience almost feels an understatement.
Couldn't ask for more! The outdoor setting and the facility are both phenomenal. Wish we could have stayed longer! Janet and her staff are attentive without being overbearing. Definitely recommend.
We found Sea Cliff Gardens a perfect place to stay while we were in Port Angeles. We enjoyed the fact that it was secluded and quiet. The furnishings were comfortable and added to the charm. When we arrived, it was a bit chilly so the low fire in the fireplace provided welcome warmth. Every day there were different kinds of cookies. There is a refrigerator available for guests and a microwave for heating things up. Breakfasts were varied and served in courses, beginning with fruit and a pastry, e.g., scone. The entries were creative and quite filling and twice we had sorbet to cleanse the pallet. Bill and Laura go out of their way to make your visit perfect. We were asked about food allergies and preferences for pillows. Sea Cliff is the type of place we would return to should we be in the area again.
Amazing property. I thought I was entering a secret garden and then the views from my room of water were just incredible. I only stayed here for about 12 hours, but the stay, the property, the service, the breakfast reigned supreme! The nicest inn keepers ever!
We only stayed one night but would have loved to stay much longer. This B&B was exceptional. The view of the Ocean and Olympic Range from one location was wonderful. The home was designed as a B&B and our hosts were careful to make sure their guests were well cared for. Our room was spacious and wonderfully furnished. This place is special..
We discovered Sea Cliff Gardens and booked it for two nights but I wish we had stayed longer. What a beautiful, enchanting, elegant and romantic and very special place to stay. Bill and Laura go out of their way to provide beautiful amenities and a fantastic breakfast served on china and crystal. Can't wait to go back and stay longer. The gardens are so beautiful and our room so comfortable.
We just celebrated our anniversary and elected to stay at the George Washington Inn. This place was absolutely phenomenal. The views were remarkable, the grounds where beautiful, the breakfast was fantastic and the room was perfect. Dan and Janet do everything they can to make your stay special and one to remember. Truly gracious hosts. Thanks for having us and looking forward to returning.
Take a deep breath and let your body unwind as you are about to enter a place of peace, calm and relaxation. Walk under a giant arbor and follow the winding cobblestone path through giant pine trees and lush gardens to your enchanting destination. Though just recently built as an inn rather than a home, one would think they were stepping back in time to the early 1900’s to one of the historic New England inns. Your path leads you to a large welcoming front porch with comfy rocking chairs. You make a mental note that says; “I need to spend some time right over there in that big rocking chair with a good book.” The accommodations at Sea Cliff Gardens ae amazing. Each Victorian style room is meticulously designed with comfort and relaxation in mind. Our room was that of a 5-star hotel suite replete with museum quality antiques, cozy fireplace, comfortable king-sized bed adorned with the finest of linens, huge soaking spa for two and spacious bathroom. The oversized picture window at the far end of the suite provided two comfy rocking chairs where we sat with a nice bottle of wine and looked out over the lush rear gardens reminiscent of the nearby Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Gazing past the garden and gazebo lies the sea and the Strait of Juan de Fuca with the city lights of Victoria in the far distance. Our hosts, Bill and Laura could not have been more accommodating. A bountiful breakfast served each morning on fine china started each day off with interesting conversations with other guests. Bill and Laura’s acute knowledge of the area offered us numerous options for places to see, dine and explore. If your vacation plans take you to the Port Angeles area of Washington The Sea Cliff Gardens offers you a 1st Class ticket to comfort, relaxation and a beautiful place to come home to after a full day exploring the beautiful northern end of the Olympic Peninsula.
Our stay ar Lost Mountain BnB was great. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed the beautiful grounds and quiet atmosphere. Very convenient for day trips to coast and the Olympic National Park¿¿ Host Dwight was excellent on recommendations for restaurants and day trips.
Lovely lovely place tucked away close to the Port Angeles entrance of Olympic National Park. Full service hot breakfast was very good....but the rooms themselves were the highlight of the stay - very well appointed, terrific views and overall a wonderful experience.
My husband and I just spend the past weekend celebrating our anniversary at the George Washington Inn in Sequim. We live in the neighboring town and have rode our bikes past the estate many times saying, "we've got to stay at this beautiful place!" This B&B truly deserves a 5 star review from every perspective. The Inn itself is breathtakingly beautiful and spotlessly clean with careful attention to every detail. It is situated on a bluff overlooking the Straight of Juan de Fuca with incredible views of both the water and the mountains. The estate is on a 10 acre lavender farm, complete with charming gift shop, and feels completely peaceful and serene. Breakfast is at 8:30 each morning and Janet (owner/chef) went out of her way to accommodate our special dietary needs. Breakfast was 3 delicious courses with in house roasted coffee. Dan (owner) served our breakfast with a smile and entertaining stories about the Inn and the area. The location is in the Sequim farmland but close to both Sequim and Port Angeles and the North Olympic Discovery Trail. I would highly recommend this B&B to any travel and food enthusiast!
Stayed overnight for a taste of Olympic Penninsula. Well worth it. Located on the cliff overlooking the Straits. Big picture window in a grand room made for beautiful scenery. Room was appointed with all the amenities and great sheets to boot! Breakfast was delicious in courses. Plate size was just right! Bill and Laura are lovely, fun, gracious hosts.
We were in the Port Angeles area for a wedding and chose to stay at the George Washington Inn. We spent four nights in the Surveyor retreat and absolutely loved our stay. The owners, Dan and Janet, are very friendly and helpful. They were very accessible and ready to answer our questions and address our needs. The room was warm and inviting and everything was neat and immaculate. The property is beautiful and backs to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It was delightful to enjoy an amazing breakfast while sitting on the piazza every morning looking out across the water to Victoria, Canada. The inn is located on the Olympic Peninsula and is close to a variety of sightseeing opportunities and nature hikes including those at nearby Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park. We are definitely looking forward to our next stay at the George Washington Inn.
I so wish we had stayed more than one night. Bill and Laura were so welcoming. Laura even made dinner reservations for us at Bondies Plate in Sequim ( excellent ! ) Our room with a private hot tub and cliff/garden view was absolutely one of the loveliest I have stayed in. The B&B is beautiful and the gardens are not to be believed. Truly indescribable. Go ! Stay and enjoy this amazing B&B.
