Reviews for this vacation home rental in Port Townsend, Washington
Lake Stevens, WA
What a charming vacation house!
October 28, 2015
This house has all you need! Just bring the food and good company and you're set for a good time. We were really impressed with the huge deck and the large backyard that is right on the water. We didn't get to use the firepit because it was raining but we will if we come back this spring or summer. The layout of the house makes it seem much bigger than what we had anticipated. It was such a nice surprise to get there in the evening and find the (flameless) Halloween candles going and the gas fireplace lit. It is so super cozy. My husband loved the large recliner that sits right by the bay window that overlooks the water. The kitchen is fully stocked with toasters and blenders and all the utensils you could want for. The house was very clean and the beds were nicely made. The location of the property is so quiet and peaceful, we were in heaven. QFC and Papa Murphy's are also only about a 15 min drive away which was awesome. There was a big stretch of waterfront that we had all to ourselves once you walk down a few steps from the backyard to the beachfront. We loved seeing all the birds!! One of the trees had almost a dozen hummingbirds in it!! Next time we will bring binoculars for sure. The WiFi had a very strong connection which was appreciated. We brought our two year old and she loves to watch movies on her kindle so that was an added bonus. There are even board games under the shelf by the tv if you have a few extra people to play with. OH and there is WINE people!!! If you forget to bring your own wine, there are several bottles of wine that you can choose to buy for a very reasonable price, which we thought was a wonderful touch! All in all, we loved it here and would love to come back again. Thank you for letting us share your home for the weekend!
What a wonderful review Melanie.Thank you! We try to make the house cozy & inviting so our guests feel welcome when they arrive. Knowing you have a 2 year old I wanted the house to be nice & warm. Hopefully the next time you stay it won't be raining and you can spend more time on the beach and around the firepit. My grandchildren love exploring the beach. They find little crabs, starfish & sand dollars. We look forward to your next visit. Sandi & Rich
October 25, 2015
My daughter and I had a great time enjoying this house and the great view. Peaceful, relaxing, everything we were looking for and needed. The TV instructions were a little confusing but we figured it out. I need to apologize to our landlords, I forgot to unload the dishwasher. Thank you for sharing you home.

Wow!! If you want to get away and enjoy the beach , this is it!! We absolutely LOVED every minute of it! Sandi and Rich knows exactly how to treat their guests. We stayed 9 days and still didn't want to leave. We were calling it "home" coming back from an outing. It felt that nice to be there. Loved it!! Thank you Sandi and Rich
We finally had rain while you were here. It has been such a hot, dry summer. I know being from CA, you didn't mind the rain. You and Rich still went crabbing. Thank you for the delicious homemade jelly and lip balm. I've never known anyone who made their own lip balm. My lips feel so soft after using it and I love the minty flavor. Thank you for choosing the Fairmount Beach House for your summer vacation.

The Perfect Getaway
August 18, 2015
After reading all the reviews on The Beach House our expectations were very high. We were not let down. Not one bit. The new remodel sparkled and although we BBQ's steaks and ate on the deck with an awesome view, we could have eaten off the floor! It was THAT clean! We saw a seal heading into the bay, several herons (one right in front of the cabin) and many bald eagles. The plums on the tree in the yard were very good. We both hated to leave but appointments in the city called. I suspect the cabin wouldn't have been available anyway. It seems to be booked most of the time and we could see why. We do plan to return to Rich and Sandi's beautiful retreat as soon as we can find an opening. Thank you both for a wonderful stay!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I appreciate how clean you left the beach house. I was able to clean in record time, which allowed me time to weed and water the flowerbeds before our next guests arrived. Rich said it was a pleasure meeting you and Barbara. Hopefully I will meet you both the next time you stay.
LOVE THE BAY AND DECK!
June 22, 2015
We had such a fun time at this place. I went with a friend and our children came to visit with their friends. We hung out on the deck talking, eating, reading watching shorebirds, enjoying the sun and fresh air. One morning a bald eagle with a snake or fish in its talons flew right over our heads and right then another eagle swooped in and grabbed the snake in its talons and they swirled around in the air fighting over the prey. What a sight! We also saw plenty of eagles and herons and other birds. We went swimming in the bay and walking on the beach. You can't walk at high tide because the water comes all the way up to the steps (delightful!) but all the other times there is a beach to walk on. There are also hiking trails nearby in various parks. There is a lovely big lawn for frisbees or whatever and a wonderful fire-pit for sitting around the "campfire' at night. The stars were wonderful too! We loved this place!
Thank you for the review Theresa. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time at our beach house and that your boys could join you with their friends. It has been a long time since I swam in the bay. We used to water ski in front of the house too. I hope you made many lasting memories on your visit to Discovery Bay. Thank you again!
Valencia, CA USA
Excellent place to stay
June 22, 2015
The location is amazing. It is on the beach and is so quite and tranquil. Enough space for 3 adults and more...it comes with a fully equipped kitchen and two bedrooms. After a really busy week on vacation, this was the perfect place to come and to just relax. Situated close to Port Angeles and Port Townsend (about a 20 minute drive in either direction) this is a great place to see the coast of Washinghton. Sandi was absolutely amazing to deal with and I wholeheartedly recommend staying at the Fairmount Beach House. You will love it.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review Lesley. I'm so glad I was able to change your dates for you..sorry your plans didn't allow you to stay longer. Our son and daughter in-law live in Valencia and Rich and I are looking forward to visiting with them in your neck of the woods. We've never been to Valencia. Thank you for staying at our beach house and we hope you will return.
Cozy Cottage on the Water
May 29, 2015
My husband and I stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. The cottage is centrally located between Port Townsend and Sequim, so we were easily able to spend one day visiting Port Townsend and another visiting Sequim with a half hour car ride each way. The cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen, so we were able to prepare both breakfast and dinner "at home" with food purchased at The Food Co-op in Port Townsend and The Chimacum Market in Chimacum. We also enjoyed spending time on the deck relaxing, looking at the tranquil water view. Overall, a nice place to stay in the area, especially if you are looking to bring your dog as we did.
A Fun May weekend

This is our second time visiting this charming getaway. Terrific layout, and the owners are great. Can't wait until next year. Allyn Chevalier
Cozy and comfortable with amazing view
April 28, 2015
I was so impressed when I walked into the cottage. It was laid out nicely, the view is from the entire front of home and it was spotless. I wish we could have stayed longer. It was a perfect get away from the city. Peaceful and quiet.

Gem on the Bay for Pam, Pat, and an Old Dog Lu
February 15, 2015
We spent a week doing BFF things with my friend's old dog. Everything was perfect. The house is well maintained, stocked with everything you could possibly need, beautiful view, comfortable beds, big fluffy bath towels... I could go on and on. Sandi and Rich have a real gem in this two bedroom and one bath beach house. Even the Old Dog LOVED the fireplace in the living room which kept us all toasty warm. It was such an easy walk on the beach, when the tide was out, and we collected a few beach treasures including a couple of pieces of beach glass.

After some stormy weather when we arrived, the next few days were calm and clear. The stars that could be seen from the deck of this cozy house were breathtaking! The air is so clear and the expanse of sky so broad. The house is very sweet, the fireplace made it cozy and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great Gals Getaway!
December 6, 2014
This home is in a beautiful location with a great view. Myself and my 2 best friends rented this house for 2 nights and our favorite aspect of the trip was how conveniently located this house was to so many fun places. You can also tell the owners take great pride in keeping this home clean and in great condition for visitors.
Hi Jaime...I'm so happy you enjoyed our beach house and exploring Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula. Living here I tend to take it all for granted. I love having friends visit so I can "play tourist" and show them around. We truly live in a beautiful area. I hope you and your friends return. Thank you for taking care of the beach house!

Fairmont Beach House

Enjoyed two lovely days at this great location. You have your own piece of Paradise with great views and all the amenities one would need. Nice dining set on the expansive patio in which one can really soak in the atmosphere. There is also a firepit with wood included that we didn't get a chance to enjoy but will next time.
Great Place to Stay Near Port Townsend
October 4, 2014
We knew this was a great find when we first walked onto the property. First greeted by trees full of chirping birds in the large private secluded yard that takes you right down to the water's edge with a view across discovery bay. The apple and pear trees were full of ripe fruit. There a large deck overlooking this peaceful setting. Then we stepped inside this immaculate home decorated with many touches that reflect someone who wants to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. We found the location very conveniently located between Sequim and Port Townsend. We will definitely return.

Fairmount Beach House
October 1, 2014
Absolutely terrific rental. Well thought out. Can't stress enough how cool this place was. Brought our dogs, and they even made friends with the local dogs. Great View. I knew it was going to be great when I originally talked to Sandi the owner. She was most pleasant. Her husband and her did a really nice job. Hope to come back next year.
comfy and cozy cottage
September 26, 2014
The beach house is delightful, with a wonderful view of Discovery Bay, an excellent location to enjoy the area, and all the little extras that helped to make our stay quite enjoyable. Our biggest problem was we wish we had scheduled more time there ; just sitting on the porch was so relaxing and pleasant that it was a part of the day that we looked forward to the most
September 7, 2014
This was an excellent place to stay and I would highly recommend it to others, and if I'm in the area again, would rent it again! The beach house was comfortable, had everything we needed and more (including games, a kite-which my son loved flying on the beach, videos and a fully stocked kitchen) and was a great price for our family set up. The lower part of the house worked well for my parents and our family (2 young kids) had the top and loft. The kids loved staying in the sleeping loft and barely came down while we were in the house. The location is 'far' from town (not walking distance) but it's one block away from north beach. Easily accessible by bike or car to the rest of the town, and the owners were happy to accommodate us with early check-in. Thanks for the great 48 hours in Pt Townsend!

Dear Sandi & Rich, Seven nights of peace, quiet, and rejuvenation. We had plans to see this and that, but ended up just sitting and truly taking in the breathtaking surroundings. Ventured out for crab and clams, but that's about it. It was perfect! Your home is just beautiful, we were so impressed with all the thoughtful touches. The road is very quiet, we met a couple neighbors as the neighborhood dogs came to welcome our own two dogs. Otherwise, we wouldn't have even known we had neighbors it was so beautifully landscaped for optimum privacy without impeding that drop dead gorgeous view. As we are planning to relocate to the Sequim area we hope to be visiting FBH again to explore the area... if we can ever get off the deck, that is! Thank you for everything. You made this easy, all the way around. BTW, FedEx delivers with a smile. I left my medications home on my kitchen counter! We arrived at FBH at 4pm, had our neighbor grab the meds and race to FedEx by 4:30pm, and was answering the doorbell the following morning at 9:30am. Didn't miss a beat! With sincere appreciation, Lani & Mike Tucker, with pampered dogs Riley and Bodie P.S. We left a new box of sugar as a donation to the spice cabinet that came in SO handy! Until next time, thank you again and again!
August 22, 2014
Remodel very comfy and quaint 1000 square feet. Nice layout. Every detail and supplies well thought out. Beautiful gentle lawn many fruit trees with slope down to beach. Timed the tides well and we had great fun beachcombing. Saw an Otter jogging for the brush. Easy drive to Downtown Port Townsend proper. In a neighborhood. Nice and quiet. Need to keep firm control of dogs as the road in and out passes close. Established stay command on steps on leads and no problems. They were in heaven on the beach. 2 outdoors hoses to keep all clean. Back deck is great and big as it covers the width of house. We will return!
August 5, 2014
This is a very nice, cozy, beautiful beach house in a quiet nice neighborhood. we had a great time during the 3 night stay. so glad for finding such this pure treasure in discovery bay!!
Great Beach House. Great Vacation
July 1, 2014
Thank you for the comfortable and clean beach house. We had fun. Excellent access to Port Townsend and the Olympic National Forest. We enjoyed the large deck and being right on the water. We built a fire each evening in the fire pit.

A friend and I stayed here for the weekend. We loved the view from the back deck, especially the herons and the otter. The place was comfortable and well-equipped, with the exception of a less than great coffee maker. We'll go back.
I'm sorry you had trouble with the coffee maker. It is a more expensive one, but obviously a little confusing to use. We have since purchased a Mr. Coffee, which everyone is familiar with.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate the feed-back so we can make changes, when necessary.

We celebrated our 35th anniversary at the Fairmount Beach House. Beautiful weather, lots of privacy and amazing animal sitings from the deck. Sandi was great to work with and did everything she could to make it a memorable stay. We are already talking about when we can come back.
I was thrilled that the weather cooperated and was perfect for your anniversary weekend. I hope you were able to enjoy some of what Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula have to offer. Although, sometimes it is just nice to relax for a weekend without running here and there. I am looking forward to your return to our beach house.

Relaxing Beach House Getaway
June 1, 2014
We had a great time at the Fairmount Beach House. It is a quiet, peaceful location with a beautiful view. I enjoyed walking the beach each morning and listening to the sea birds. The house was perfect for the two of us. The kitchen is well stocked and having a washer and dryer was really nice.
I too love the mornings at the beach house, sitting on the deck with my cup of coffee. Rich and I travel and I'm always noting what is lacking in the condos/vacation rentals we stay in and then make sure it is available at our beach house. I urge our guests to let me know what they would like to have at the beach house to make their stay more comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you for choosing the Fairmount Beach House for your vacation.

We were thrilled about the accomodations and the location. From Fairmount House we could drive to Port Townsend, the Dungeness Spit and native American complex in Sequim, waterfalls in Quilcene, ferry rides, excellent restaurants everywhere, and Whitney Gardens in Brinnon. All of these were within 15-20 minutes and were well worth many more. This house was a lucky find for us and hope others enjoy it as much as we did. Braswells

Fantastic vacation rental home
May 10, 2014
This was our second stay at wonderful Fairmount Beach House with its spectacular location on Discovery Bay. The house itself is comfortable, clean and great for making our own meals. But the best thing by far is the superb view and the great deck to enjoy it! We loved walking the beach at low tide and seeing all the wildlife--several eagles, osprey, ducks, a seal and an otter, etc., as well as finches, robins and even a California quail. Beautifully maintained grounds and very quiet location. Thank you again for an unforgettable stay.
Thank you for choosing our beach house again, Susan. It was wonderful to fianlly meet you. I was thrilled when you gave me a signed copy of your book, Torn Apart-The internment Diary of Mary Kobayashi. I enjoyed reading this well-written book and my friends are asking to borrow it. I look forward to reading it with my granddaughters when they are older. Thank you again!

Fabulous, Beautiful and Clean Must Stay

We stayed at the beach house to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. It was the perfect place one could ask for! Beach access and view was just awesome! THe house was neat, clean and had all the amenities required (along with a grill). The property is nicely maintained. Owners of the property are wonderful people. We missed being at the beach house after we returned and we have decided to go back to the Fairmont Beach House again in the future!

I stayed at the Fairmount Beach House with a friend for a winter getaway from Seattle. Lovely, roomy house with a knockout view. Cozy, close to town and very restful. I hightly recommend it!

Beautiful home right on the bay
November 4, 2013
Like the rest of the reviews, this is a great get away. Loved the view and all the creature comforts of a real home. We will be coming back in warmer weather so we can enjoy the deck and barbeque. Loved all the fruit trees--not often you can go somewhere and pick your snack right off the tree! Thanks again

Great Stay Despite Fogged In Western WA
October 26, 2013
This is a very sweet property! Clean, well-equipped and maintained, comfy and inviting. The crown jewel of the property is the easy access to the water with a spacious deck with a fantastic view. The rare luxury of this property is an owner that accepts well-behaved pets. My sister's Golden Retriever made full use of the water ALL weekend! WE had a wonderful time despite the fog which covered all of Western Washington the weekend we were there.

September 28, 2013
We just moved to Port Townsend and needed a place to stay until our furniture arrived and we could move into our new house. Sandi and Rich were incredibly accommodating so that we could stay at the Beach House - they are wonderful innkeepers. The house is lovely and the view is spectacular. We would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet secluded place right on the water - if we ever have more guests than we can accommodate at our house, we will book the Beach House!

This was our second time. We enjoy the vast outdoor space for our mini daschund and the privacy. Very clean and very good communication with the owner. This a perfect place for those who want privacy, peace and beautiful surroundings.
Nice, relaxing place
August 15, 2013
Very nice place. You can tell it is a labor of love by a careful owner. Clean, well-maintained and exceptionally well-equipped. Big lawn going down to water was great for our little dog. Beach is nice for shell collecting. We really liked it.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our beach house and to share your experience. You are correct, it is a labor of love. The house has been in Rich's family since the early 1940's and was built at the turn of the century. Discovery Bay has a very interesting history, as does Port Townsend.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Love the Fairmount Beach House!
August 9, 2013
Even better than described, the Fairmount Beach House was the perfect choice for a mom-daughter-granddaughter getaway this summer. Perfectly situated between Port Townsend and Sequim (about 15-20 minutes to either), we were just far enough "away from it all". Don't miss a stop at the Key City Fish Company in PT for crabs or the game refuge in Sequim. Berry picking, beach combing and fires by the beach make this one of the best of many rental homes we've selected in the area. Book your reservation and start dreaming!
Thank you for the glowing review Karol. I have to tell you, I was cleaning the beach house before your arrival and the washer wouldn't spin. I panicked, called my husband and we made a whirlwind trip to Silverdale for a new washer. While I did the laundry at our house, he hooked up the new front loader at the beach house. So...you were the first to use the new washer. I'm glad you, your daughter and granddaughter enjoyed the Olympic Peninsula. Thank you for staying at our beach house.

Wonderful Beach House
July 18, 2013
We loved our stay at this property. Kids played in backyard and at the beach. We roasted marshmallows in the fire pit by water front. We prepared good meals and ate on the deck enjoying the beautiful view. Had incredible weather while there and took short rides to downtown for sightseeing, park and museum. We all had a lovely time in Port Tonwsend.

Wonderful get away
June 20, 2013
We just returned from four days at the Fairmount Beach House with our two companion dogs! It was wonderful! The location is perfect, in the midst of many activities and exploring. We visited Sequim, the trails in the Sequim peninsula, Dungeness Spit, and down towards Port Hadlock and Ludlow, Mount Walker and Quilcene. There are many parks within a short driving distance to explore. The Saturday market in Port Townsend was a treat for all. The house is right in the middle of all these attractions. The best part of the day was coming back to the huge deck and relax watching the birds go from the nearby wetlands to the end of the bay. Just magical! The house was remodeled very tastefully and is very comfortable. Everything you need for a self contained stay. Would go back again any time!

Can I move here please
June 15, 2013
Will rent here over & over & over again. Love the house, the yard, the location. House stocked with all needed items. Big yard & small private beach which dogs loved. So comfortable, a home away from home. Sandi was a pleasure to deal with. I have already recommended to several people. A bonus was our 32 ft class A motor home fit easily in the driveway. Already looking at dates for next year.
The Perfect Getaway
June 13, 2013
First off I want to say a big thank you to Sandi and Rich for providing such an awesome place to stay.. Never being to Port Townsend before I had great anticipation of wonderful things. First being the most coziest of homes. The pictures don't do this wonderful home justice.. upon entering the home it had a wonderful smell so inviting and we fell in love immediately.. We had perfect weather and had our lunch outside the very first day, just sat there for hours enjoying the birds and breeze.. It truly was a wonderful stay. You know when you are away and you can't sleep because the beds are not comfortable, well these were we slept so well I felt I was sleeping on clouds. As we were up for a wedding on this visit I made sure to mention what an amazing place we were staying at and of course insisted on us giving our special find up for there future visits. We will for sure be back....
I had my fingers crossed for nice weather for the wedding you were attending. Although, a little rain is a sign of good luck on the wedding day.
Thank you for the feed back on the comfort of the beds. That has always been a high priority.
We welcome you and your friends anytime.
10 Stars If I Could
March 2, 2013
This is a top notched house. Very quaint, clean, well stocked and so close to the water. The water side deck is fabulous, both view and size. I tried the new BBQ, enjoyed steaks and water view in the evenings. I highly recommend you contact Sandi and Rich, you will not be disappointed at all.
One of the best experiences ever!
February 25, 2013
We came to stay here as a birthday weekend for my husband's 40th birthday. His parents came to join us from England and we all stayed for three days of joyful uninterrupted bliss :) The accomodations are spotless, the beds cozy and comfortable, and the deck with the view was magificent. We saw eagles and other birds...and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. So much so that we called Sandi on our last day and begged to stay one more night...which we did :) Great energy and love in that place. You can tell it is a place that people have celebrated being together for a long time :) will go back again for SURE!!!
Thank you for the lovely review Charmaine. I always enjoy hearing about our guests' experiences at the beach house, which has been in my husband's family since the early 40's. Rich and I love sharing the house and property so others can make wonderful memories also. Looking forward to your return!

Clean and Cozy
February 22, 2013
This two bedroom beach house was right on the water with an amazing view of Discovery Bay. The house was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed. Although there are other houses in the area, they are out of view so the beach house was very private as well. Loved it and will definitely be back!
Knowing how busy everyone is these days, we really appreciate that you took the time to write a reveiw of our beach house. Thank you also for leaving the house so clean. It didn't even look like anyone had stayed there! We look forward to you staying at the beach house again. Sandi
February 18, 2013
Upon my arrival to one of the most cutest cabins I have ever seen, I knew this was going to be the beginning of a great weekend and I was still in my car. Upon my entry, I knew I had made the best choice as it was warm and inviting with the soft fragrance of Scentsy. I wondered around the inside of this cozy little cabin just looking at all of the love that the owner's put in to this home on the bay. You can tell the owners love this place by the way it is taken care of. Immaculate is an understatement. The beds are more comfortable than anything you could get anywhere else. The bathroom and kitchen have everything you need and more. Huge deck. Beach to walk on. I believe this home was built in the early 1900's so that only leaves a lot of character there to make it a very calming/relaxing/welcoming place to stay. The floors don't creak when you walk on them. The little touches around the cabin really make it the warm and cozy cabin I was looking for. Just sitting still and relaxing, you will notice all the little details. If you have never been to this area, this is the place to stay to begin your getaway. The beautiful drive to town took 20-25 minutes. I found myself driving slower just so I could take it all in. Each time I returned it felt the same, very inviting. Not your typical rental. For us it was like housesitting for a dear friend and you want the house to look exactly like it did when you arrived. We are already planning our next weekend to include a couple more days. You will not want to leave. I know we didn't. Thank you Sandi & Rich for all you have done to not only make my time spent there a wonderful experience, but for others as well. I have so much more to say, but I will save that for all my friends and family that are wanting to get away as well. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for such a descriptive, positive review of the beach house, Paula. We appreciate the time it took you to write it. Thank you also for the darling shopping bag. Did you make it? I left it at the beach house for guests to use as they shop in Port Townsend. They passed an ordinance where eveyone has to bring their own shopping bag or you will becharged a nickle for each bag they provide now. Your shopping bag was a wonderful and thoughtful gift that will surely be used over and over again. Thank you also for taking such good care of the house and treating it as if it were your own. We love to share the beach house with others and hear of their experiences. I feel as if I already know you with all the emails going back and forth. Thank you again Paula...you are welcome back anytime!

What a great retreat for the Holidays, or any day for that matter. The Fairmount Beach House is very comfortable, nicely decorated and truly a home away from home...only with a fantastic view. And the fact they are pet friendly made it the perfect fit for us. We will be back.

This was our second stay at the Fairmount Beach House and everything was just as we remembered it from our last stay. The addition of WiFi was nice. The house is very comfortable and clean and our dog loved romping around the large yard. We'll definitely return!

This is a very pleasant, well-maintained cottage. There is almost no sense that there are other people around in this season. Large yard which goes down to beach, there are good views of Discovery Bay from the cottage, and there's a quiet road for walks when the tide is too high to walk on the beach. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with adequate equipment. The cottage was plenty warm. The owners of the cottage were very helpful, cheerful, personable people who sincerely want to help if there are problems. If you are planning to go to Port Townsend on a daily basis, expect to spend about 40 minutes on the round trip.
Thank you Robert and Janet for the wonderful review. Somehow when it posted, it came across that I wrote the review, which I didn't, I was responding to it. I enjoyed getting to know you through emails before you arrived. Rich and I would love to meet you both in person. Hope you are able to stay at the Fairmount Beach House again. Thank you for taking such good care of the beach house.

We had no idea what to expect and were amazed when we walked in the door! Super clean and totally private, the love that goes into this place shows. Everything you need and then some. Really perfect, could not have asked for a cozier more enjoyable stay. Thank you Sandi!!
Thank you Jan. We love hearing that our guests had an enjoyable stay at the beach house. This is my husband's family home. Family reunions, holiday celebrations, quiet times as well as music and laughter has filled this home. Our children rode their bikes down Fairmount Rd., fished from the beach and played baseball in the yard. Lots of wonderful memories were made here. We hope you will return to make more of your own special memories. Sandi

Perfect little house at the head of discovery bay. 1 large, 1 small bedroom. Enough dishes and utensils to host a dinner party. Sheets and linens were nice & good quality. Fresh flowers welcomed us. Large lawn was fun for the kid & dogs, a few easy stairs to the beach, fantastic views, friendly owners and neighbors .Daughter had a blast beachcombing all week! 10 minute drive to the QFC in Chimacum, 20+ minutes to Costco in Sequim. 15 minutes to Downtown Port Townsend for fun shopping and lots of restaurant choices and parks for the kids to play. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Fairmount Beach House

Even better then the photos and description show! The house , grounds and the bay are absolutely beautiful. The owners Rich and Sandi met us at the house when we pulled up. Very nice and conscientious people. We met a good portion of the neighbors who were equally friendly. We had a little Washington "Liquid Sunshine" the first couple of days followed by real sunshine the rest of our 10 day stay. We caught and ate enough fresh crab, clams and oysters to feed a platoon. The resident eagle flew by every morning as we sat out on the deck. Our two Boston Terriers enjoyed exploring every nook and cranny of the grounds and most of Fairmount road. The location was central for our boating adventures on the Straight and Hood Canal. It was really hard to leave when the time came.

From the moment we walked into the beach house we were relaxed, the view is incredible and the house itself was spotlessly clean, we felt instantly at home. We didnt bother to eat out, just grilled on the deck and then lit a fire in the fire pit to round off the day. We can not wait to go back!!

Just as stated, a wonderful relaxing stay on the ocean. The house was delightful, and provided everything we needed. Will definitely try to come again. Thanks,

Fairmount Beach House is the perfect getaway home away from home. It had all the amenities, was nicely decorated, and most importantly, comfortable! The property on Discovery Bay is large and spacious in a quiet neighborhood. The deck is very large and would be a great place to hang out in the summer. We will definitely be back!

Charming Waterfront Cottage

Our 3 night stay at Fairmount Beach House was wonderful. It has every amenity and is quite close to Port Townsend, which was one of our requirements. The view from the living room and kitchen/dining area is spectacular. There is a laundry area on the back porch and Direct TV, as well as a selection of games and books. The kitchen is well stocked and the bed was extra comfy. 2 space heaters and a gas stove in the living room kept things cosy. The place was spotless when we arrived. A major bonus was that we were able to take our small well behaved sheltie with us and he loved the place too. One minor complaint: there were a few too many artificial plants and flowers. It is a relatively small space and would benefit from the old adage "less is more." Other than that, a truly great little gem on Discovery Bay.

Lovely Beach Home Vacation Experience
October 17, 2011
The Fairmount Beach House is the cleanest vacation rental that we have ever used and incredibly well appointed. That being said, the real draw to this charming home is the exquisite view of Discovery Bay. The home is located privately about 20 minutes from downtown Port Townsend. It has an incredibly large yard that our little Norwich Terriers loved. My husband and I would recommend this rental home to anyone that may be looking for peace, quiet and solitude. This home fits the bill.
A magical place..

Everything at the Fairmont Beach House was beautiful. From the vivid green scenery to the flowers and sweet cottage-home, to of course, the indescribable view. Even the pictures don't do it justice- you just have to see it in person to truly see the wonder in this view. We had a perfect time here. Everything was spic and span, welcoming, and peaceful. I would not change one thing about it.. Renting this property for any amount of time is far more than worth it. I highly, highly recommend!

This had to be one of the best vacations I have ever taken. The view from the deck was awesome. Used the house as a base for sightseeing. Had both sunny and cloudy weather and on the days it was cloudy, just kicked back and relaxed. Would definately do it again.

Fairmont Beach House definately met and then exceeded our expectations. I have rented many beach houses and have never had this much luck. We found this home welcoming, spotless and comfortable. The backyard goes right down to a private beach where there was sand dollars and shells. In the morning we ate breakfast on the back deck and looked over the bay. It was the first trip for my sister and I and our college age girls to get away together, we well definately go back to the Fairmont Beach House...Beautiful!!

Beautiful location right on the water. The house is immaculate and the master bedroom extremely comfortable. Working with Sandi was a pleasure.
Wonderful, clean Puget Sound Family experience!

We had a wonderful time at the Fairmount beach house! The porch is excellent and you can't beat the access to the water. Our 12 year old son discovered how much he loves the water here and would disappear for hours at a time combing the beach. We saw lots of birds: bald eagles, ospreys, black-headed grosbeaks, western tanagers, common terns, the ubiquitous gull. We also saw harbor seals who would come up and feed at low tide each morning. Fresh crab and shellfish (although a ban was up on the shellfish) were abundant. The cabin was clean and Reid family and their neighbors were extremely hospitable while giving us our space at the same time. We loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

The view was gorgeous and the deck our favorite place to hang out morning, noon and night. The house was meticulously clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed taking our kayaks out in the bay right from the yard. And on top of the sun, fun and beautiful views, the owners' friends brought us fresh-caught crab right from the bay. What a treat! We plan to be back!

We just spent a weekend here and it was so peaceful. A very well organized and clean house. The views are amazing and the location is great. We hope to come back sometime soon.
Wonderful, relaxing stay

This is a very special accommodation. The house was very clean, comfortable and cozy. Since some of the trees had not leafed out yet, we had a panoramic view of Discovery Bay. It was very quiet, only local traffic on the road. We enjoyed coffee on the deck every morning, listening to the sound of the waves on the beach and bird songs. Already thinking about the next time we can visit!

This property was everything we were led to believe and more! Everything was extremely clean. The kitchen was stocked with every item one would need and the quality was nice. The decor was calming and pleasing without being overpowering. The beds were so comfortable it felt like home. The deck and its view was terrific. Within easy reach of Port Townsend and Sequim, there was plenty of touristy things for the energetic to do. For those with more relaxed tastes the deck and the oceon provided it all. I sincerely recommend this property. Diana Stafford

I cannot say enough about how lovely this house, yard and beach front are. The place was immaculate and blooming with flowers inside and out. The decor was charming and extremely tastefully done. A gorgeous, quiet, convenient location too.

Beach House Relaxation
April 7, 2010
Four of us set out to stay here in early march, honestly expecting rain and storms the three days we were there... But instead we were treated to something I have rarely witnessed. Sitting on the back deck watching a picture perfect sunset in the distance as the clouds wisped right by us. We could see the rain falling far off on the water and opposite coast from where we were, but it did not hit us at all. The house had everything we needed to relax and have a good time. We decided to hike out to the lighthouse on Dungeness Spit in Sequim on Saturday, which turned out perfect. 10 miles later we were sitting in Smittys burger joint eating some of the best burgers around Washington, although the chimacum cafe was pretty stellar as well. There are pamphlets for most if not every restaurant in town as well as various activities. The only downside to the beach house was leaving. It was hard to say goodbye even after only a few days. This is definitely worth coming back to time and again. Thank you Sandy!

We just got back from vacation. We realy loved this place. It was quiet, secluded, and just what we needed for a relaxing family vacation. The house had all the necessities. We would definately recommend this place. The view is amazing.
Relaxing, fun and lot of amenities!

This house was perfect! It really is right on the beach with a fabulous view and plenty of yard space to enjoy, complete with campfire pit. The deck is awesome, and the grill made for some great outdoor cooking. Coffee in the mornings on the deck was one of the best parts of our trip...before the kids woke up :) The owners have thought of everything their guests could want/need. The kitchen was well-supplied with ample pots and pans as well as other tools and gadgets; we found it very easy to cook in. The beds are comfy and there were plenty of blankets, pillows and towels for all of us. There were even rubber boots and shovels for us to go clamming. Thank you for thinking of everything and allowing us to stay in such a pleasant and peaceful place.
