We couldn't stay away for long! We chose to add another night to our Pacific Northwest journey and after staying with Sharon a few days ago we decided we would spend another night on our way back to Seattle. Once again a lovely experience- Sharon is a wonderful, kind hostess and her breakfasts are a real delight!
Sharon is a very nice lady. Her house has a great view face to the sea. Her rooms are warm and clean. She always has a smile. My kid said he like every thing there. She bring us to a lady's farm to feed lambs. Sharon is a smart lady, she will tell you many interesting things.
Her breakfast is very good and health. We had a great vacation there.
Our stay with Sharon in Port Angeles was absolutely lovely! Sharon was a total sweetheart from from the moment we met her and her house is lovely and clean with a very comfortable bed and spacious living area. She made us an absolutely amazing breakfast before we hit the road. Thank you, Sharon!!
My husband and I enjoyed our one night stay at the Captain's Bay by the Sea hosted by Sharon. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves and in the morning I took a long bath in the very large clawfoot tub.
Sharon was very accommodating and fixed us a lovely breakfast with home made bread. Yum!
The house was easy to find and is lovely inside but also is undergoing remodeling to fix it up. Fine by us as our own house is always undergoing some project.
A lovely spot and host.
Sharon was wonderful and the room and home were just as the pictures illustrated. The room was cozy and we had a great night's sleep. The home is located on a hill overlooking the water, so from our bed we could open the drapes and look out across the water!
Sharon fixed us a lovely breakfast and was as sweet as can be. The location of her home is perfect walking distance to town and there are small restaurants/bars closeby. We went the next morning to hike at Olympic National Park, which is 20 mins away so this is a great night's stay if you plan to check out the park. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!
Sharon was a dear host. She has a cool house and provides cozy accommodations and wonderful, welcoming conversation. She went out of her way to provide a lovely breakfast in the morning. Well done!
The host, Sharon, is a wonderful sweet person that makes you feel warm and welcome as you are. She is extremely accommodating to your needs and loves having you there. She is resourceful of the area as well. She is will have a ton of brochures for you too if you want to know more about activities in the area.
The space, there is a bedroom with a sitting area upstairs and bathroom, it felt like having a small 1 bedroom apartment, which was fantastic to say the least. You could drop off all your stuff in the bedroom and then play games or read in the sitting room without having to spend every moment in the same room with someone if you are traveling with others.
The overall house, you will be downstairs on the main floor for breakfast, please be aware the host is doing remodeling to this lovely home. It caught be off guard at first that some things seemed not complete, but she has done so many wonderful things to the house you barely notice after short time.
Internet connectivity is very good and a welcome reprieve compared with other areas in Port Angeles and surrounding places.
The views from every angle of the house are amazing too. You almost just want to stay in the house and relax instead of doing any other plans you had. I will definitely be coming back and staying just to stay and have no plans.
Very minor bummers:
1. The tub is the shower and takes some adjusting and takes a bit to get used to. Plan to take baths, they are much more relaxing anyway.
2. There are other people in the home, a foreign exchange student and her daughter and boyfriend. They are all very polite and try there best to not exist while you are there. It did not bother me in the least but it might matter to others.
3. This is a wooden older house. You will hear old world charm like sticky doors and creaky floors throughout. I found it extremely comforting, but again some people would like to know.
I absolutely loved being here and plan to visit again. It was wonderful to find a home away from home. Thanks for everything Sharon and keep in touch.
