Europe In The State Of Washington?

“All problems have a solution,” we hear, and people always seem to be right! So when the solution you are aiming for is “the perfect European vacation”, but the Euro is getting in your way… No problem! The solution you are seeking is right in your North West Washington “back yard”, and it’s called: Port Townsend, Washington.

Port Townsend is a city with the European flavor you crave in food, wines, (both imported and/or the splendid local reds and whites), architecture and culture.

Lodging here can also be a charming “one of a kind” experience, in the Victorian Mansion that belonged to Anne Starrett, in the very heart of Up Town.

Your delights here start entering. Here in Port Townsend, the precious wooden carved stairs offer you the harmony you would expect from a song. And on the way up, you bring your delighted eyes to the painted “cpula” as the climax of your first visual ecstasies.

If in the other wonderful Victorian “treat”, The Old Consulate -which, like its name indicates, was built to serve that very honorable purpose; and still distills the irresistible charm and elaborate beauty of its time.

You can lodge, overlooking the amazing Puget Sound, if you lodge in the James House.

There you’ll find the charm of elegant and well chosen antiques all about; but each of the rooms will provide you , in all comfort, a flavor all it’s own!

But Port Townsend is all this and more.

Port Townsend is a compendium of all these gifts in the middle of crystalline waters for you to admire, and sail and kayak or wind-surf. There are also luscious woods for your appreciative eyes; growing in the midst of homes, gardens, parks, and beside some lovely beaches, for you to hike at your leisure.

Fun, cultured, multi-talented people are all around; entertaining themselves in art or arts and crafts, and entertaining you with their art, and their stories.

You can expect excellent taste and variety in boutiques; and excellent, affordable antiques -if you take some time to look.

An unforgettable visit to Port Townsend will quench well your thirst for the European flavor…in your very own back yard!

Life invites you to Port Townsend….

And a deer or two on your space, grazing gracefully the lawns they grace with their grace. In Port Townsend you can hardly avoid playing with words, and finding poetry; whether it is verbal, emotional, or visual

In Port Townsend you’ll find old, beautifully carved woods in the lobby of “The Rose” movie house you attend and the Victorian bar and restaurant you treat yourself to afterward.

Movies are excellent selections (as the Oscars came to demonstrate). The Live Theatre is truly splendid, and even migratory birds love to meet you here on their way South or North!

Not only can you drive to Port Townsend from Seattle, Victoria BC or Vancouver BC… now you can also fly from Seattle, and Port Angeles. You can sail in, or come on foot. You’ll love it -And we’ll love you!
