The Five Seasuns Bed and Breakfast Inn



The Five Seasuns Bed and Breakfast Inn

About the Innkeeper

I am Caroline, the innkeeper at the Five SeaSuns. After an early career in the hospitality industry and later career as an educator and director of education programs, I'm now following my dream as an Innkeeper. I love meeting people and enjoy making them feel at ease and comfortable in my inn. I also love to cook, using fresh fruit and vegetables in season, and I especially enjoy baking pastries, such a almond croissants or my grandmother's cinnamon roll recipe. I'm passionate about nature and enjoy sharing details about all of the wonderful outdoor activities available here in the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. 

Our goal at the Five Seasuns is to make sure that every guest can relax and find a peace within that sometimes gets lost in the hustle of today’s busy world. We do everything we can to make sure every guest feels at home and leaves with fond memories. This includes delicious breakfasts, homemade cookies, comfortable robes, an inviting living room, where you can unwind with a book or game and a cup of tea, and beautiful gardens.

Please visit and make the Five Seasuns your place for relaxation while you explore Olympic National Park and everything else that the Olympic Peninsula has to offer.

        

About the Historic Five SeaSuns Bed & Breakfast Inn

This historic home was built in 1926 by attorney, Thomas F. Trumbull, as a showcase in a new era of construction.  The Dutch Colonial design provided for more open stairways and plentiful windows allowing natural lighting throughout the home.  It was one of the first homes in Port Angeles to boast of having two full bathrooms in the upstairs. 

The pergola on the south side of the home was a part of the original construction and provided the perfect spot for Mrs. Trumbull to entertain the society ladies of Port Angeles for afternoon tea.  You can still enjoy a cup of tea and one of Bob’s cookies under the pergola today while enjoying the waterfall and fish ponds.

Mr. Trumbull came to the Olympic Peninsula to work with the timber and railroad industries in the expansion of the railroad to the west end of the peninsula to meet the demand for timber in the war effort. A part of that railroad bed still exists on the north side of Lake Crescent, know as the Spruce Trail.  

He later became a circuit judge and we are told was always uncomfortable in owning the home, feeling that it was too ostentatious for his position in the community since the home was completed shortly before the Great Depression… 

The home sold in the mid-40’s to the Smith family who owned the “Soda Pop Factory” and the ice plant.  They continued to be a “place to be invited” in the community with large backyard barbeques for their closest 100 family and friends. 

The home remained in their family until 1994, when Bob and Jan Harbick purchased it and lovingly restored it to once again be “the place to be” in Port Angeles.  They opened their home as a B&B in 1996 and shared its elegance and charm with their guests for nearly 20 years before retiring in early 2016.

I share Jan and Bob's love for this beautiful home, and I look forward to continuing their tradition of excellence in hosting guests for years to come.
