Why Deborah and Stephen Moriarty chose Port Townsend
Port Townsend is a wonderful place to visit. There are always festivals and shows and many fine restaurants and cozy coffee houses. The Phillips House is a taste of the colorful history of Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula and we would like to share it with others.
What makes this House unique
The Phillips House is in uptown Port Townsend with sweeping views of Port Townsend Bay. There is nothing more wonderful then watching the sailboat races on Sundays, unless of course you are in them, or the sun rise over Mount Rainier. These are the views from the many windows overlooking the waterfront. The house was changed little, except for the addition of a workable kitchen, during the renovation. It still holds all the charm and style from the time it was built by Mr. Phillips in 1872.

Great View - Great Location
A charming home with a wonderful view and located within walking distance of many of the activities in Port Townsend. The owners were very cooperative and flexible. There is ample space and the beds are comfortable.
It is a great place to base out of to enjoy the local and regional activities.
Nice home, very chilly weather but the library was very cozy! Wish the couch was more comfortable🤔
Beautiful property, gorgeous view. Owners are very accommodating, even texting half way through our stay to make sure every thing was going well.
Love the town, lots of adventures!
It was quite a February in the PNW - unusually snowy and cold. I am glad you were still able to enjoy your stay. And, about that couch, I must get something more comfortable. Somethings came with the house and just didn't leave when they should have! Thanks for mentioning it.
I hope we see you again.

Beautiful fully restored older home in ideal PT location
Gorgeous house. Pictures don’t do it justice. House is blocks from the “uptown” business district (where the Saturday Farmer’s Market is located) and a matter of 50 yards to the stairs to “downtown.” Very quiet neighborhood/street. Lots of deer. A beautiful church on almost every corner. Especially gorgeous upstairs bath with claw foot tub.
For those traveling in the warm months:
Be sure to check out the beach at Fort Worden- quiet and lovely.
Also there’s a Fifties style restaurant downtown that’s good for kids- sit on the patio. (Insider tip: they keep strange hours so be sure to check ahead).
There’s an especially cute and affordable gift shop a few blocks away called Petals.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
A month of lifetime memories
We loved everything about our stay at the Phillip's House. It was immaculate on our arrival. Everything in historic Port Townsend was within a short walk: farmers' market, grocery store, waterfront, antique stores, shops, restaurants, ferry...everything you'd want. We loved the bay window with the view of the ferries coming in and out of the harbor and seeing the daily visits of deer. The owners have done an outstanding job of anticipating everything a family needs for a comfortable stay.
Thank you! We aim to please!
Wonderful home to to include in your VRBO listings
The house was comfortable and clean. The hosts had flowers, wine, candy and a bag of coffee to greet us, very nice. The view of the Pudet Sound is breathtaking. The hosts are kind, considerate and cordial. We would highly recommend this home to anyone who wanted to stay there.
Thank you for your kind review. We try our best to make the Phillips House comfortable for our guests. We are VRBO users ourselves and know how wonderful it is when we arrive late at night to our destination knowing that we don't have to stop at the grocery store to pick up coffee and condiments for the morning.
Hiking, biking, sailing, golfing, walking, shopping, kayaking, theater, dining, art, culture...Port Townsend has it all.
