A Magical Discovery
From the lamp-lit forested drive that led us to the Heart of Discovery to our host’s warm welcome to the luxurious yet relaxed atmosphere of the beautiful home to the golden glow of the sunsets and the morning chirping of the birds, our stay was a perfectly happy one and we can’t wait to be back. Thank you, Bruce, for your kindness, caring, and thoughtful attention to every detail.
Beautiful view & house
The house had everything we needed. There were three couples and we were all comfortable.
Fantastic home with amazing views!
We came to stay at the Heart of Discovery to explore Port Townsend. Bruce was an amazing host! He was available for questions and very attentive to anything we needed. This home is spectacular. The views of the Bay and mountains was breath-taking. Bruce has thought of everything from toiletries to tea to dishes of candies to fresh flowers in the home. The wood burning stove was cozy and easy to operate and the kitchen was completely stocked! We will definitely stay here again and we wholeheartedly recommend the Heart of Discovery to anyone seeking an amazing home on Discovery Bay!
Beautiful getaway on Discovery Bay
This is a beautiful home nestled in the quiet area of Discovery Bay. The loudest sounds are the birds in the morning (very peaceful). The home sleeps 3 couples very comfortably, and is so welcoming it's hard the leave. The views are spectacular. You're in for a treat!
Gorgeous view, fully stocked kitchen!
We had a fabulous time at this great home. The kitchen had everything you’d need and more (foreman grill! Espresso maker!) and the beds were super comfy! We enjoyed day trips to Fort Warden, Port Townsend, and Olympic Game Farm and even got to enjoy some snow on our last night! One thing I will say if you are traveling with kids is that the house is filled with treasures that are not great for toddlers- we spent lots of time moving things to higher levels so the kids couldn’t get them! Brice was very helpful with meeting us for check in, leaving chocolates (yum!) and shoveling the snowy driveway!
We had three couples stay at Heart of Discovery and it was absolutely wonderful. The house has a beautiful view and a perfect layout for a group to cook, eat, chat, and wander together or separately. Each couple had an ample bedroom with very comfortable beds. The kitchen was better stocked than any other VRBO or AirBNB than any of us had ever experienced, enabling us to easily cook meals for our group.
Bruce thoughtfully left a variety of drinks and a container of biscotti for us. He also had beautiful fresh flowers in vases around the house. He really thought of everything to make our stay perfect.
