About Judith

We live next door to Aunt Clara's Cottage so you won't be alone. If you need something just knock on our kitchen door. We're here to help you have a great time. And, if you're here to work or finish writing that 500 page novel, you can have complete privacy.

Aunt Clara's Cottage is a valued extended-stay member of the Port Townsend Chamber of Commerce.

Judith purchased this house in 2000

Why Judith chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

From Aunt Clara’s everything in the Port Townsend National Historic District is easily walkable.

Park your car in front of the cottage then forget it.

It’s only a three minute walk to the Rose Theater and the DOWNTOWN stores and restaurants.

A four minute walk to Aldrich’s Market ( aka “The Center of the Universe”).

And two minutes to the UPTOWN shops and Saturday’s award winning Farmer’s Market.

Very clean. House cleaner tidies up every 2 weeks. Privacy, quiet, & comfortable with a dynamite View.

What makes this house unique

Most people love sitting at the window watching the boats and eagles.

It's a magical place when the flowers bloom and a comfy & cozy place when it rains.

We loved this charming 1940's cottage in Port Townsend

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a charming property with beautiful views of the Bay and ferries; a gorgeous english garden that surrounds the house and fills the back yard; a comfortable living room/dining area with Direct TV; a good bed (!) and a fully stocked kitchen. It is in a lovely quiet neighborhood of Victorian homes and yet walking distance to downtown and uptown areas. The owners of the property, Judith and Robert are really nice, friendly, helpful but also respect the privacy of their guests. We really appreciated them. We also fell in love with Port Townsend. There is so much to do, great bookstores, art, music and events. We also visited the Olympic National Park and Neah Bay and Victoria. Its a great base for travel around the area by ferry or car. We highly recommend Aunt Claras cottage and hope to return for future visits.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this well cared for, comfortable cottage, located in a beautiful garden. Their outside dining areas were greatly appreciated. We found Port Townsend to be a great walking town, with many small cafes within easy reach. There are many activities in Port Townsend during July; we took advantage of many of them. Judith and Robert were knowledgeable, helpful hosts, and we high recommend this accommodation.

Just what you're looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this cottage was ideal for a month in Port Townsend! Private, quiet, cozy and very comfortable, yet right in the heart of Uptown. A quick walk to anything you need: groceries, sushi, coffee, fine dining, yoga, farmer's market, art-house films -- all that PT has to offer. Can't wait to return and live the PT dream all over again. Thank you Judith and Robert!
