Washington's oldest inn.
Built in 1896, this Victorian retreat is the state’s oldest continuously operating inn. Old-growth wood paneling and an abundance of stained glass accent its wealth of charms. Despite its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, it doesn’t offer water views. An emphasis on comfort makes up for this deficiency. All of the 15 rooms are furnished with period antiques and have private baths. Most also feature individual decks. A ground-floor suite showcases French and American antiques and a claw-foot tub; its French doors lead out to the herb garden. One of the inn’s highlights is its food, which focuses on fresh local ingredients. At breakfast you’ll be delighted by the homemade sausages and sauces. Morning meals will surely tempt you to check out the inn’s nationally acclaimed Shoalwater Restaurant.
