Great place. Great location - 5 min walk to Fort Worden and less than 10 min drive to the main town area. Very clean. Terrific service - Vicki even mailed me my electric toothbrush when I forgot it!

The Nature’s Refuge is a great cozy spot between Fort Warden and downtown PT. It had everything we wanted for some much needed relaxing time off.
