Overview

Port Townsend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-7)

Privacy and proximity are the best combination for a happy visit here. Relax in a quiet, safe environment just minutes from the Port Townsend waterfront. The “Guest Nest,” a newer house, rests peacefully in a park-like setting, nestled into 5 acres of private woods. Yet it is less than 4 miles from historic downtown Port Townsend. A clean and modern single-level property, this 900 sq. ft. home comes equipped with everything to give you comfort and convenience. Perfect for those who want the luxury of seclusion and convenience in their getaway. You can relax, read on the deck, watch TV or grill something for dinner. Be in town in minutes via car or bike.

The Guest Nest's many amenities include: A full kitchen equipped with dishwasher, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice maker and stove/oven. The dining room table seats 6 people. Two cozy bedrooms with forest views will welcome you at the end of a long day of recreation. One has a queen-size bed and convertible sofa/bed; the other has a full-size log bed. The living room has a 42” HDTV with Apple TV channels and Netflix, DVD player, movies, books and board games. The living room sofa is also a very comfortable queen size high-end futon bed. The house has free wifi and gets strong cell phone coverage. The bathroom includes a large, walk-in shower with bench, a blow dryer and soft towels. For your convenience, enjoy a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. The private side deck has a propane BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating, plus a grassy area. We also have a large social area with a pavilion, fire pit and picnic table that seats 10.

When you're ready to head into town or off to the Olympic National Park for an adventure, everything is nearby. Restaurants, galleries, theaters, grocery stores and shops are all just a short drive. We are also conveniently located to the ferry terminal, old Port Townsend, Fort Worden State Park, Discovery Bay Golf Club and many beaches. Our town provides many festivals throughout the year and offers a variety of recreational fun such as horse riding, sailing, boating, crabbing, fishing and diving locations.

There's plenty of parking at the Guest Nest for your visitors or your boat. Bring your bikes or running gear to enjoy the 8-mile Larry Scott Trail forest and waterfront path right near the Guest Nest. We're less than 1 mile from this popular bike and walking trail that winds through the forest then along the water right into Port Townsend. Or just enjoy the serenity of The Guest Nest: bring your binoculars for birdwatching; your journal for quiet reflection; and sleep in peace without traffic noise.

About The Owner

The hosts, Bill & Lisa, have worked in the hospitality business for 15 years.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Port Townsend

There is so much to do in Port Townsend and The Olympic National Park, including hiking, beach combing, festivals, golf, wineries, art galleries, antique shops and craft beer pubs. Port Townsend hosts the famous Wooden Boat Festival and Jazz Festival. Our town is a great place for relaxing, enjoying fine restaurants or beach walking. Port Townsend is part of the Olympic Rain Shadow/Banana Belt. Cities inside this area enjoy more sunshine and less rain than the rest of the Northwest. And Port Townsend is the perfect home base to enjoy day trips to the San Juan Islands, Olympic National Park, the Hoh Rain Forest and Forks.

What makes this house unique

Privacy. Beautiful wooded setting. Ideal for couples, girls getaways or families. Extensive outdoor space including a deck with BBQ, a private forest, fire pit and pavilion.

Guest Nest

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 enjoyed staying at the Guest Nest. The kids loved being able to bike and hike from the house. It is a very quiet and beautiful get-away that is close to town.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

So many great things to say about our little get-away! I don't think I have ever stayed in a more clean house or hotel! Everything a family could need was right at our fingertips. Lots of movies, washer and dryer, comfy beds and linens. We just brought in food! We really had no desire to leave much! Close drive into town. Bring bikes for your kiddos! Fire-pit, trails, play structure, sand pile, nice deck. We did an Easter egg hunt and it was the perfect setting. Truly-you won't be disappointed.Thank you Bill and Lisa for accommodating our family and guests.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My two kids and I stayed at this rental while visiting family in Port Townsend. Everything was wonderful! The kids loved the toys and movies, and the outside play areas. I loved the well stocked kitchen, deck for reading and enjoying the fresh air, and the multiple comfortable beds. The property is just beautiful and was a peaceful retreat with plenty to keep us occupied in the short time we were there. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We'll definitely be back!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. The house was just right. Comfortable beds, big kitchen, terrific TV set up. Very quiet location but just minutes to town. The pictures really don't do it justice. Felt like home. Bill & Lisa were perfect hosts. Can't wait to come back!!

Comfortable and Convenient Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend at the Guest Nest and loved the comfort, cleanliness, stocked supplies such as movies and guest teas, and the proximity to historic downtown Port Townsend from the rental. Our toddler was sick during our entire stay, and of course in that beautiful part of Washington it did rain one day, but since the rental was so comfortable and kid-friendly we still managed to enjoy our mini-vacation and time together in the house. We would love to explore the wooded property and trails around the rental the next time we stay at the house, and there will be a next time!

Nice spot, kid friendly

  • 4 of 5

Nice new place, quiet location. We had 4 adults and 2 small kids, and there was plenty of room for the 6. Kitchen was efficient and good assortment of pots / pans to do some cooking. Bill (the owner) was responsive on getting checked in and out.
