What is the Best Olympic Peninsula Lodging?
When you’re planning a visit to the Pacific Northwest, you may find yourself asking, “What is the best Olympic Peninsula lodging?” The answer is clear: The award-winning George Washington Inn, which was voted the Best B&B by the Peninsula Daily News in the Best of the Peninsula roundup for three years running, 2013, 2014 and 2015!
History Buffs Love Our Olympic Peninsula Lodging
The George Washington Inn is located on the Olympic Peninsula in Port Angeles near Sequim and is a replica of George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon. Just as Mount Vernon overlooks the Potomac River in Virginia, our inn overlooks the Strait of Juan de Fuca affording panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the Olympic Mountains, and our gorgeous lavender farm! History buffs, in particular, love the detail in which our bed and breakfast was constructed. They also love our annual events that celebrate the life and accomplishments of our first president. One such event is the annual George Washington’s Birthday Tea which combines our appreciation for America’s first president with the elegance of a traditional tea service. Other events include the Washington Lavender Festival and the NW Colonial Festival.
Our Lovely Lavender Farm
The George Washington Inn strives to emulate Washington’s passion for agriculture and land stewardship, and we believe that’s reflected in our Lavender Farm. Our field of organically grown lavender sits on top of a geothermal field that provides a natural source of heat for the inn. It also ensures a quiet environment so you can enjoy listening to the eagles calling to one another as well as the ocean waves lapping against the shore. The lavender bud and pure essential oil from our Washington Lavender Farm are the key ingredients in all of our “Martha’s Own” and “By George” lavender products, which we sell in our farm store from May through September and in the inn’s gift shop throughout the year. Just imagine the fragrant scent of lavender wafting on the breeze as you sit on our beautiful porch, taking in stunning views of pristine nature. That is possible when you book your stay at George Washington Inn. Such a stirring scene makes our inn the best Olympic Peninsula lodging, but we’d argue this singular place makes us stand out in the entire country!
Experience Whale Watching
Our location on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Puget Sound also makes our inn the perfect launching point for whale watching excursions. We offer several package options for whale watchers who also book their stay with us. In addition, it’s entirely possible that you’ll catch a glimpse of a whale breaking the surface for a breath of air from right here in our own back yard. These majestic creatures never cease to amaze us or our guests.
Our Convenient Location
The George Washington Inn’s convenient location makes it easy for travelers to explore the Pacific Northwest. We’re just minutes away from dining and shopping in Port Angeles and Sequim and minutes away from the million-plus acre Olympic National Park. Nature enthusiasts, hikers, cyclists, and fishermen – just about anyone who takes pleasure in the beauty of creation will enjoy the convenience of George Washington Inn.
