The space

The Parsonage was totally rebuilt in 2008, turning the 1901 first minister's house into a lovely 2350 SF Victorian 2-story that offers this lovely KING BED ROOM to guests. GROUP DISCOUNT OPTION: Book both listings for $252/night. The charm of an older home is captured in the angles and high ceilings of the rooms. The king bed room is located on the 2nd floor. Guests have use of the house. The bedroom has a small refrigerator, flatscreen TV that offers Netflix, DVD player, and air conditioning. It has a high headboard with shelves, two night stands, and a chair. Guests enjoy a lovely sitting room near the bedroom where they can use a microwave, and have early morning coffee or tea. The living room and dining rooms downstairs are also available for TV watching, relaxing, or games. We provide beach towels for guests who want to lounge in the eight person hot tub in the backyard. Bathrobes are also available. When the weather warms, guests enjoy the backyard patio under the shade pavilion. Everyone raves about the comfort of the beds and our terrific gourmet breakfasts. There is free WIFI, a computer printer and book exchange.

Guest access

Guests have use of the entire house, including the laundry room. The garage is available for bicycles, golf clubs, or luggage. The kitchen is available for light use with all the kitchen ware.

Interaction with guests

I live on the other side of the house. Guests have good privacy, but they may see me a few times a day. I serve guests breakfast and do not join them. This way they feel like a king and queen for the day! This also gives them some privacy and time to plan their days. I am here, however, to help guests with any issues.

Other things to note

We offer a DISCOUNTED GROUP RATE WHEN THE KING AND QUEEN ROOMS ARE RESERVED TOGETHER. THE RATE IS $252.00 PER NIGHT, plus tax. We also love serving guests healthy meals with consciousness about high cholesterol, lactose and glutten-free issues, and other health concerns. Garden produce, herbs, and flowers are used for the breakfast meal.

My husband and I had such a nice welcoming stay with Mary. Room and bathroom were comfortable and clean. Home was beautiful and close enough to the harbor to enjoy beautiful walks. Mary was a most generous host and prepared delicious breakfast for us, would stay here again in an instant.

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying with John and Mary! They were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. The room itself is cozy and has everything a guest could want, including mini-fridge, TV and DVD player with Netflix. The bed was quite comfortable with luxury linens and pillows. Though the bathroom is shared with the other guest room, it is adjacent to the bedroom and nicely equipped. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and service was on par with fine dining while maintaining casual conversation. Very enjoyable. Definitely recommend!

Warm and Welcoming...What a great stay we had with John & Mary at The Parsonage!! Their home is absolutely beautiful - no detail left unattended!! Breakfast was out of this world delicious. The Parsonage is just blocks away from beautiful downtown Gig Harbor. Thank you, John & Mary!!!

Mary User Profile
Response from Mary:
Kevin was given immediate notification of our inability to take his reservation, due to The Parsonage B and B being fully booked for his requested dates. Airbnb fully refunds the customer and charges the owner a $50 fine for not accepting the reservation. We advertise on many sites and cannot accept "instant bookings" based on the site calendars. It is too cumbersome for us to manage the calendars for our two guest room B and B. We also offer a group discount when both rooms are booked at the same time.

Mary User Profile

Mary is a Tacoma native. She had a great 44 year marriage to John, whom she met in college and married the week after graduation. John and Mary moved to Gig Harbor, a quaint little town just outside Tacoma, in 1992. Together they embarked on a very successful real estate sales career. Mary still likes to refer people to the best veteran agents serving the area. She has a wealth of information about the Puget Sound region, its people, local events and festivals, activities, and not to be missed tourist highlights. Today Mary enjoys semi-retirement, playing competitive tennis, skiing with family and sharing her lovely home and John's gardens with bed and breakfast guests.
