The historic 1909 Cedar Cove Inn invites you to a place of comfort, relaxation and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Settle in and enjoy the stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and Sinclair Inlet as boats sail across the sound. Relax by the fire in the summer cabin or take a stroll to visit the local shops.
The Inn has been lovingly restored to its historic grace, offering guests a visit back in time where the pace is gentle and relaxing.
The home overlooks Port Orchard Bay, Sinclair Inlet and the Olympic Mountains.
Located at the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula, guests can choose to stroll along shorelines, explore the Olympic Rain Forest, visit Pike Place Market in Seattle, or take in the local art galleries, museums, wineries, antique shops, theater venues and dining experiences.
The house was built in 1909 by Peter Nordby and his wife Anna. Peter founded the Nordby Supply Company in Seattle and in 1908 moved to Port Orchard. He was actively involved in establishing the town, building the new wharf, “one of the best on the Sound,” the Central Hotel, now the Olde Central Antique Mall, and many business ventures in Port Orchard. Peter Nordby was one of the founders of Kitsap Bank and its first President.

Wow! In fact I'll double down with another Wow! Our family just finished a six day stay at The Cedar Cove Inn. Let me put it this way. If the entire state of Iowa was paved with asphalt with the Cedar Cove Inn sitting alone in the middle it would still be worth staying at because the house is so amazing, so beautiful and the proprietors so kind and gracious. Of course it sits majestically overlooking Puget Sound. Now to practical points that will be of use to people. We experienced Cedar Cove as a family compound but it's a bed@breakfast that also, perhaps primarily, rents by the room. I told my wife I could easily see staying as a couple because there are so many magical spots. It can accommodate a couples' inclination to mingle but preserve the option of privacy. As for a family gathering it was indescribably perfect. Gil and Kathy were kind and helpful but truly unobtrusive. They were available for help or suggestions. To preserve the coolness Gil closed the west outside blinds around 3:00p.m.but otherwise you would barely know they were there.....and we were a full family of conversation and pealing laughter. The location is surprisingly accessible to Seattle. A five minute walk down the hill and you're at the ferry. Tacoma is pretty darn close and there are trains that go right into Seattle. We had a great day seeing all the sights and closed it out with a Mariners game. Port Orchard is a handsome town, a perfect base to explore different regions. You're even closer to the Pacific coast. A bit of a haul but yes you are closer. In closing I would add that the property is incredibly well maintained. The photos accurately depict what to expect but in fact can't do it justice. No matter how long you stay you will still be discovering details of perfection and unerring good taste.....courtesy of Gil and Kathy. Thank-you both. Long review and guess what? Haven't even scratched the surface of what I loved about it.....p.s. Just read this to my wife and she said it would be a sin not to mention how perfect the kitchen is for a family that loves to cook. She's right.
Those are just some of the adjectives that came from our family on our weekend reunion at Cedar Cove. From the oldest to the youngest, it was unanimous - this house was perfect.
First of all the hosts were great - making arrangements was easy, and Kathy greeted us to give us all the info we needed, about the house and the area. The house itself is even better than the pictures. Beautifully restored and furnished, and absolutely spotless. We spent the first hour just exploring all of its nooks and crannies. It's big enough for everyone to have the privacy they needed, but still cozy enough for us to be together - on the porches, looking at the amazing view, in the music room listening to our family talent playing the piano, in the parlor just reading and playing games . . . on and on. The bedrooms are large and quiet; beds were great. The kids loved the front and back lawns - they played bocci and croquet and just ran around enjoying the sunshine.
The kitchen is huge and stocked with everything we needed. Our family made meals for twenty without crowding or mess. Parking was generous - we had eight cars and would have had room for more. Location is great - easy walk down into Port Orchard for a visit to the tall ships, Saturday Market and antique shops, and handy to all the other amenities we needed - stores, ferries, freeways.
I could go on, but really, no need - this is just a great place. Try it.
My family and I recently had the privilege of staying at the Cedar Cove Inn. We found all aspects of the resort to be above our expectations. The surrounding areas were beautifully landscaped. The views of Sinclair Inlet and the Olympic mountain range were stunning. The Kitchen featured modern appliances and offered plenty of counter space. The dining room and family room were well furnished and also offered phenomenal views. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a relaxing time at a fantastic location.
I stayed here with my family last weekend and had a wonderful time. This house is very well kept and has amazing views of the water. My family loves to cook so to have a kitchen large and plenty of dishes was awesome. All of the rooms were comfortable and well decorated with their own charm. The hardwood floors throughout the house are beautiful. They even had a crib for my daughter to sleep in. This is the perfect place for a family weekend or for a couple to come get away for the weekend. It is in perfect walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants as well as the Port Orchard marina and park. Very fun weekend, would definatly come back!
A group of friends has taken over this whole B&B for the last 3 years and intend to do so again in 2014. We use the entire B&B including taking over the kitchen.
The rooms are great, the common space quite spacious and the kitchen is huge (like a catering kitchen). We all love it and look forward to returning again and again. Description and photos are accurate, property beautifully maintained, owners helpful but not intrusive at all.
We haven't stayed individually with strangers in the other rooms, but there is a good deal of privacy and in the common spaces, plenty of room to settle without having to interact with others if you wish. The grounds are lovely and the 360 degree wrap around deck provides shade or sunbathing.
What an amazing place to stay! The entire house has been 100% redone from the ground up and the craftsmanship that was put into it is wonderfully old school and no detail was missed. Further, the views are to die for...on the top of the hill overlooking the bay and the hosts bend over backwards to make sure you are taken care of, while at the same time, not getting in your way. A perfect balance of service and privacy.
This truly is one of the most amazing properties I have ever been in and I travel a lot all over the world.
If you get a chance to get out to Port Orchard, WA make sure you stay here. You will definitely not regret it.
