    Right in Old "Uptown" but close to "Downtown"

    by

    .
    Please Note: Call the hotel before getting your hopes up. There was a "for sale" sign in front of the hotel in mid-September 2010.

    I did not stay at this "hotel" (or should that name be used?). However, I stumbled across it while exploring the old Victorian houses that are located in the "uptown" area. It is several blocks to "downtown" Port Townsend. This is not a far walk at all. This is one of the spectacular old properties (built in 1889) in this city, and help make it a unique place to visit.

    The hotel is set on top of the hill in the old residential area of Port Townsend, and this part of town is very peaceful. There is no through traffic at all on the surrounding streets, and in fact most of them are quite narrow, so that other than paving put down decades ago the streets (including the lack of sidewalks and their very narrow nature) hasn't changed much for over 100 years.

    Based on the web site, the house has a number of different rooms, all of which are available for a different rate and have different features. I am quite certain that the rooms with the best views are the ones with the highest price.

    Unique Quality: Both interior and exterior of this traditional old Port Townsend home are pure - Port Townsend? I know not how else to describe this place. It is one of the preserved houses that is such a Port Townsend gem, and being in a quiet residential area would make it a good place to relax.

    The building is registered as a historic property, but the historic plaque in front of the house is rather uninformative about the history of this house.

    Directions: Corner of Adams & Clay Street. Go uphill to Adams from Quincy and Water street, downtown. Very close to bus stop for Jefferson Transit bus route 11.

    stay in one of Port Townsend's finest Victorians

    by

    Built in 1889, The Ann Starrett Mansion was then contracting mogul George Starrett's homage to his wife. With frescoed ceilings, stained glass windows and a free-hung three-tiered staircase, the mansion is considered Port Townsend's most ornate Victorian. Eleven rooms are available for rent and while not cheap, they run web specials that make them a much better deal. Being able to travel mid-week in the off season does have its advantages.

    Unique Quality: Their website is quite elaborate and you can choose one of the 11 rooms after viewing and reading a description. Currently, they are running a pay for one night, get a second night free if you come mid-week. Prices vary with the room but look to be in the $200 per night class.

    Directions: This parallel street to Water Street is uphill from town and close to the Saturday Farmer's Market. That's how we saw it.
