A lovely home for a large group.
Two large families shared this lovely 6,000 sq ft historic home for Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to prepare a Thanksgiving feast and enjoy it in the beautiful dining room. (We did bring our own turkey roasting pan.) The butlers pantry and extra back porch pantry provided extra room for food storage and for everyone to make tea, coffee a meal or snack. The children loved exploring the four floors and played many games of hide and seek and Mafia. At times I even wondered if there were actually 8 children in the house ages 9-18. There are many beautiful art pieces, paintings and furnishings to make you feel like you stepped back in time.
The reason I did not give this home 5 stars is that it really needs a deep cleaning. The dust was thick. The upholstered furniture and some of the beds are worn out and all the window coverings need a wash. Four out of the 12 people in our party were experiencing allergic reactions to the dust. If you go pack your Zyrtec. :-)
It was a fun four days and we enjoyed our time in the Commanders home. The house is not spooky and we did not see any ghosts. Just a lovely old lady of a house.
A perfect family reunion home
This is an amazing home! The Victorian furnishings were lovely--we felt as though we had stepped back in time. The kitchen was so well stocked that we never brought in the crock pot, electric griddle or large serving bowls we brought with us. We never ran into the ghost at all (they had filmed an episode of Ghost Adventures featuring this house and it aired on one of the nights that we stayed) but perhaps the happy sounds of a happy family kept the ghost at bat. We all voted to come back here in two years--everyone loved it!
Perfect Christmas getaway for family!
This house was absolutely perfect for our large, multi-generational family at Christmas. We were speechless when we walked in and saw the entire house had been decorated for the holiday, including a full-size tree in the living room and Christmas carols playing on the radio. It felt welcoming from the moment we arrived. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone, with different room set-ups that accommodated a variety of ages and needs. The house was well-stocked with everything we needed and the beds were extremely comfortable. There is a hidden playroom on the top floor full of toys for little kids, and a rec room in the basement for kids and/or adults. The three gas fireplaces on the first floor made everything warm and cozy. We would recommend this house for groups of any size - there is so much room that you can have as much or as little privacy as you want, and we actually "lost" people on several occasions!
Commander's Quarters sleeping up to 18, is a unique, 7B, 4 Bath, historic home just a few minutes drive to the beach and wreck of the famous 'Peter Iredale' near Fort Stevens State Park
