Serene Waterfront Inn in the Heart of Gig Harbor
On the Waterfront Inn’s 1,500-square-foot wooden deck, you can sip coffee and get an unimpeded view of sailboats and ducks cruising past in Gig Harbor, Washington. The inn, constructed from a circa-1918 fisherman's house, is the only lodging directly on the water in tiny Gig Harbor. Smithsonian magazine named Gig Harbor one of the 20 Best Small Towns in America in 2012, and the inn is just a half hour’s walk from the charming local shops and restaurants of downtown.
Most rooms at the Waterfront Inn feature a river-rock gas fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. Each of the nautically named rooms has a distinct personality, too. The Lookout room has a vaulted ceiling and is done up in cool white linens.
Feel free to grab one of the Waterfront Inn's kayaks and go for a paddle on Gig Harbor, named the top harbor by Coastal Living.
Gig Harbor, Washington: Historical Fishing Town with Quaint Downtown Shops and Wineries
Gig Harbor, located on a bay of Puget Sound about 45 minutes southwest of Seattle and between the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, has traditionally been a boat-building town and fishing hub. You can learn more about the history of the seafaring community at the Harbor History Museum, where a 65-foot fishing vessel is on display and personal stories and artifacts give visitors a glimpse of what life in Gig Harbor used to be like.
These days, people come in droves to appreciate the town's lovely vistas of Mount Rainier, as well as the antique shops, art galleries, and upscale boutiques along Gig Harbor's historical downtown streets. The area is also well known for its wineries, most of which have tasting rooms and tours available to the public.
