On an errant notch of the Olympic Peninsula, bounded by the Puget Sound on one side and a Douglas fir-dotted landscape on the other, the Victorian hamlet of Port Townsend is a glowing tribute to a bygone era.
But what started as a bustling seaport has blossomed into a funky town abuzz with hip, youthful activity, from poetry readings and jazz nights to farmers' markets and festivals. Step back in time on this week's Escape to the eco-friendly Huber's INN Port Townsend, which delivers all the charm of Victorian architecture but none of the quirks (each room even has its own thermostat).
You'll get a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($189) or Fridays and Saturdays ($199), in the best available room, plus daily continental breakfast for two, a bottle of wine and chocolates upon arrival, and a $10 dining credit at Alchemy Bistro and Wine Bar.
The Kah-Thai Suite, appointed with a king-size bed and private bath, boasts views of a nearby lagoon, while the Garden Suite comes with two bedrooms—each with a queen-size bed—and a shared bathroom (perfect for two couples). Continental breakfast each morning is packed with treats like almond and orange gluten-free cake and organic brewed coffee or tea.
Once a booming city with hopes of becoming the West Coast's largest harbor, Port Townsend today is home to about 10,000 residents. But instead of longshoremen, you're likely to meet artists, travelers, and fun-seekers—the town is bustling with historical walking tours, boutiques, galleries, wine bars, and restaurants.
It all goes down about a mile east of the inn, in historic downtown. Each vibrant block offers colorful Victorian homes and stately red-brick buildings, earning the neighborhood a spot on the country's exclusive list of National Historic Landmark Districts, and a youthful energy at places like Sirens pub, equipped with a deck on the water.
Outdoor pursuits, meanwhile, are best fulfilled on the Larry Scott Memorial Trail, which starts just a quarter-mile from the inn and traverses a chain of bluffs to afford gorgeous coastal scenery.
After dinner at Alchemy, a new upscale eatery downtown serving the best of France, Italy, and Spain with a uniquely Pacific Northwest twist, head back to the inn and uncork that bottle of wine. Or save it. If it's anything like the town it came from, time will treat it well.
"The rooms are super cozy and there is also a beautiful side yard where you can watch the birds in the lagoon across the street. Robert and Leticia are wonderful hosts and can give you lots of advice on things to do in Port Townsend."-- TripAdvisor
