What IS it, about a periwinkle house? Your private room is in this light and open, peaceful home on a quiet street in Port Townsend, approximately 30-40 minutes walk from historic downtown. It is tucked in by the blackberries, wild roses and fir trees, next to one of PT's walking trails.

The space
I love meeting travelers! Even if you're just popping up to Port Townsend from Seattle, everyone always has a story, and a lens on life that broadens my own. Welcome to my home.

The house is located in what I call "the suburbs" of Port Townsend: not Uptown, not Downtown, but atop one of the first hills as you're heading away from each. It's about a 5 minute drive - or a 30-40 minute walk to downtown. Your room is peaceful and calm -- the kind that makes you exhale when you walk in. The knotty pine doors, simple rocking chair, a wee bit of art, and a fluffy blue duvet invite you to slow down, snuggle in to your queen-sized bed, and relax (don't be thrown off -- sometimes I'll have a sunshine-yellow and white duvet cover on the bed... still inviting, still comfortable). The room-darkening shade makes it easy to sleep-in.... We'll even stop Time for you -- pausing the pendulum on the old kitchen clock, leaving it silent, while you sleep.

In order to create a space where you can get away from the trappings of modern life, there is no TV, but feel free to access the wi-fi to watch movies on your laptop using headphones. (I tend to turn off the wi-fi late at night, for better dreaming... but it'll be back on, in the morning!) I enjoy getting to know my guests, so please feel welcome to enjoy the main living areas of house.

In the summer months, the front porch is a wonderful place to hang out. As you'll see, the garden is a work in progress... deer, bunnies, butterflies and birds are always around - it gets a bit Disney-esque around here, and if you don't move too quickly, the deer will glide in and rest on the garden knee-wall, while you're drinking your tea. I think you'll enjoy being here!

Guest access
When you arrive, walk up the gravel path and knock on the bright blue door.

You are welcome to use the kettle to make yourself some drip coffee or tea; I don't have a microwave, and the kitchen is generally not available for guest cooking, but the fridge is available if you need to stash some groceries or leftovers from your dinner out. Feel free to enjoy the house and garden... or to stay in your room, and have some alone-time. As you wish!

Port Townsend, Washington, United States

The neighborhood is quiet, with easy access to wooded trails. We actually have little kids who play and ride their bicycles in the street (like back in the old days), about a block up the road. In the other direction, at the end of the block, there's a stellar view of Mt. Baker, and out into the straits. Plenty of blackberries to pick in August... and that kind of ease that prompts us to say with a combination of wonder and gratitude, "Wow. We live here."

During your stay
I am in and out of the house: my healing arts studio is right in the neighborhood, and when I am not with clients, I often do admin work from home. Occasionally I will head into my room for privacy, if I am on a conference call.

I tend to have good friends come and go occasionally, so there are times when the house is not quiet. That said, it IS generally pretty quiet around here... although I've been known to hum or to break into song, as I'm going through my day. (Don't worry: I can carry a tune!) :)

I DO enjoy getting to know my guests, so please join me for a cup of tea or glass of kombucha! OR... please feel free to spend your time in your room without any pressure to engage. I am very easy going, and go with whatever flow is happening.

[Note: the room is quiet with the door closed, but if you desire an extremely quiet environment, you may want to stay elsewhere.]
