About the property

Our daughter has always called this 'The Ferry Boat House' because you can watch the ferry boats as they move in and out of the port. This house is a wonderful blend of 1880’s Victorian charm and relaxing beach house comfort.

Fully furnished three-bedroom, one bath home with an incredible view of the Bay and mountains. This house is very conveniently located one block from the fountain staircase and is less than two miles from Fort Worden. The main floor bedroom has a queen-size bed and the second floor bedrooms each have a full bed plus one has a twin size bunk overhead.

The living space is equipped with a TV, VCR and DVD player plus plenty of room to stretch out and read a good book. There is a formal dining room plus the kitchen has a table and seating for six. Off the kitchen is a large deck perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view.

This is a quiet neighborhood where you can park your car for the duration of your stay and walk almost anywhere you want to visit.

Why Teri and Bill Spelbring chose Port Townsend

Port Townsend is an incredible town with great people and wonderful amenities.

What makes this house unique

We love this house and location because there is the small town feeling with amazing amenities. We have a bakery, spa and community center all within one block of the house. Two blocks away there is a wonderful grocery store with a deli inside. There are also numerous restaurants within blocks of the house yet it's still in a small neighborhood where everyone watches out for each other.

A treasured place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th stay at Ferryboat House. The house is the same, easy to live in, a happy place. Owners are thoughtful and it is well equipped if a bit like every vacation place, full of random kitchen wares and a cacophony of linens. Furnace and equipment in good working order. The garden a bit overgrown but beautiful w/dandilions trimmed by friendly local deer. In a great location walking distance to Uptown shops and weekly Farmers Market as well as Downtown tourist shops, good eateries and a fabulous old time movie theater, the Rose.

Great house ! Great location !

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal location in Uptown Port Townsend. The house is comfortable, clean and well equipped for an extended stay. The rooms are large and light; the neighborhood is quiet, yet close to everything.

The eat in kitchen and upstairs bedroom have water views of Port Townsend's downtown waterfront. You are within short walking distance of both downtown and a local market. The owners are nice and responsive to your needs.

I really enjoyed the stay here; you will love Port Townsend.

Wonderful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is so great! The bright kitchen nook is a great place to sit in the morning and watch the water. The beautiful large deck is a great happy hour/dinner location, again with great water views. The house has everything you could need for either cooking in or there are great close by options for eating out. The central location to both downtown and uptown provided lots of opportunities to walk to dining, theater, art galleries, shops, etc. We are looking forward to returning. This was a really relaxing place to stay and we enjoyed our visit tremendously.

Immediately felt at home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to soak in everything that Port Townsend has to offer while staying in this charming victorian home. We have enjoyed this gem several times over the years & recommend it anyone who truly wants to fully experience this area. The home welcomes its guests with warm victorian character; a bright sunny kitchen/dinette to enjoy your morning tea/coffee, clean well furnished bedrooms (3), bathrooms (2), kitchen, dining room and laundry room. At the end of a day out-and-about, the large deck off the kitchen is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine while looking across the bay. We were able to easily walk to the bakery, farmers market, uptown shops/restaurants, downtown shops/restaurants, concerts on the dock, movies in the best theater ever (Starlight), Maritime Center, marina (beautiful wooden boats), live theater, live music and wonderful people. The owner provided area information and resources for us to make our stay the best it could possibly be! If you are looking for a welcoming, comfortable place to stay while enjoying all that Port Townsend has to offer, this is the place! Expect to take home wonderful memories and the desire to come back as often as you can.

Always a great stay! Cozy, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Been here several times in recent years and every time i'm reminded why i've been back. The house is spacious, yet cozy. The corner kitchen window(s) provides the perfect morning light and allow you to enjoy your coffee with with a partial view of the Sound.

Meanwhile, the location couldn't better (couldn't be better!) as it sits smack dab between downtown and uptown - plenty of shopping, exploring, waterfront access, restaurants, etc. all in a few minutes walking distance. The local grocer is only a block or so away too making it a super convenient trip when needed.

As a bonus, the local neighborhood deer often make an appearance in and around the yard, providing a small taste of tranquil wildlife - making for a great photo opp or simply a few minutes of enjoyment.

Can't wait to get back! Only an hour from the Seattle/Bainbridge ferry, and the perfect small town experience for a temporary getaway or long term stay.
