What a joy it is to have renters who love your property as much as you do! All of our renters have been super but Ben and Sherry were over the top.

Spectacular View and Serene Surroundings

This is a lovely place to enjoy an Olympic Peninsula getaway. It's very close to Port Townsend, but also a quick jaunt into the Olympic Mountains for hiking, swimming, etc... We stayed for 3 weeks and enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the sunset in the evenings, surrounded by beautiful landscaping...roses, poppies, fresh herbs, etc... I highly recommend checking this place out!

A relaxing home away from home

The Aerie House was all we hoped for and more. Our getaways are usually to remote cabins, but even though the cabin (which was quite large and more spacious than we expected) was adjacent to the owners' home, it felt very private. The property is situated on a hill with a great view of Discovery Bay and amazing sunsets. There are woods behind and places to walk and explore right out the door. The cabin also has a nice deck area out front with comfy chairs where it was nice to relax at the end of the day. We saw many birds and there was a hummingbird feeder on the deck and the Rufous hummers put on quite a show all day. The birding highlight was seeing an owl in the evening while it was still light outside, sitting in a tree right outside our back door. The cabin was extra clean. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owners were super nice and also gave us a lot of privacy. The early check-in and late check-out times were much appreciated. The resident dog and cat visited at our invitation and both were a joy. Besides relaxing at the cabin, we explored the surrounding area, spent a day in nearby Port Townsend and took a walk around Anderson Lake which is very close to the cabin. There is a lot to do in the area, and next time we'll make it up to Hurricane Ridge. I recommend Aerie House as a great place to stay if you're looking for peace and quiet and natural beauty, while still being close to Port Townsend.

Owner's reply:

What can I say? Cheryl was so nice that I wished we had talked more. They also left the place so clean that I felt they had used too much of their vacation time doing my work. My only complaint, and this applies to most renters, is that you're spoiling our dog!

spring renewal

A blissful retreat at the most extraordinary location in Port Townsend. Absolute comfort, quality, and peace for renewing mind, body and soul. A gem to be returned to, time and time again. The hosts are of the utmost pleasurable, kind and accommodating people. We would choose to stay no where else.

Gene and Libet Gardner

Owner's reply:

Well this is a bit awkward. Shannon, I don't think you stayed here, but on the other hand that sounds just like us!

Lovely, peaceful surroundings; terrific view; very clean & comfortable & spacious. Convenient location yet in a world of its own. One night too little time so hope to return next year!

Lovely and peaceful place

Gene and Libet's apartment is a lovely place in a gorgeous setting, a great view of Discovery Bay and miles of trails outside the door (though we didn't get time to walk). The owners had a book with maps, hints, tips, and helpful suggestions waiting on the table when we arrived. We enjoyed meeting cat Norton and dog Tostada, they were perfectly behaved. Strongly recommend this place for anyone wanting peace, quiet, beauty, meditation, restful sleep, wonderful sunsets.

Port Townsend Mini Holiday

The cottage exceeded all our expectations with respect to location, cleanliness, furniture,attractiveness and supplies. We even had homemade buns on the kitchen counter upon arriving. The view and tranquillity is incredible. We experienced the most awesome sunset on the Thursday evening. The gardens are also very attractive. I would have no difficulty whatsoever, recommending this location to friends and family.

Quiet, Peaceful - Excellent hosts!

My husband and I took Memorial Day weekend away from the busy city for a little R&R out in Port Townsend. Wow, was this a nice place to stay! It is a beautifully designed cottage overlooking Discovery Bay. Nice sunsets with cocktails or morning coffee on the deck! Everything you need – grill, kitchen, king sized bed, TV etc. Its great for staying in and relaxing, or just as good as a home base for seeing some of the area attractions like Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, Port Townsend, and all the neat farms and stores in the area. The cottage is bigger than the pictures let on – it is just super comfortable. Lovely hosts, that got us all the information we needed and excellent hospitality. Many thanks to them for letting us rent the cottage for the weekend – don’t pass this one up!

Owner's reply:

These people were too easy! He may look like he parties, but the place was immaculate and we hardly knew they were there. Almost (almost) felt bad taking their money.

Aerie Cottage

Lovely, lovely cottage. Equally lovely landlords. If that weren't enough, the view is fabulous!! I loved every minute of my stay--coffee on the porch taking in the beautiful water view, woods and quiet privacy. Also comes with resident cat "Norton". What more could you ask for? I visit Port Townsend as often as I can--this is by far my favorite place to stay.
