Hey Charlie - just wanted to leave a quick comment on the Starret Mansion.  We were fortunate to stay there during our recent visit to Port Townsend. aWe were very impressed with the house itself as well as everything it offers.  The views of the water are fantastic, and its central location in uptown is ideal.
