About the Historic Five SeaSuns Bed and Breakfast
This historic Washington State 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 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 Caroline’s pastries or cookies under the pergola today while relaxing in the gardens and enjoying the waterfall and 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, known as the Spruce Railroad Trail.
He later became a circuit judge, and we were told that he was always uncomfortable 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. The house 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 and decorated it with lovely period antiques. They also built the 5th room, the Indian Summer Carriage Suite. They opened their home as a bed and breakfast in 1996 and shared its elegance and charm with their guests for 20 years before retiring in early 2016.
Since 2016, the 4th owner of the home, Caroline Proulx, has continued the tradition of providing outstanding hospitality, sharing the beautiful home with historic charm with guests, and hearing guest stories. Come 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.

COVID 19 Safety Precautions
The safety of our guests and staff is our number 1 priority during the pandemic. As a result:
We invite guests to take advantage of self check-in and check-out to encourage physical distancing practices. If you would like, simply give us a call from your car, and we will provide a door entry code.
Please note that a statewide order is still in place that requires people to wear face masks indoors in public areas and outdoors in public areas when 6 feet of physical distancing can’t be maintained.
We are staggering breakfast seating timings to ensure safe practices and are offering seatings in two locations as well as a “to go” breakfast option.
We continue to follow CDC protocols for sanitation and cleaning with additional attention to disinfecting door knobs, light switches, and all hard surfaces frequently. We are also proud to have been designated a AAA ‘Best of Housekeeping’ property, which means that housekeeping at the Five Seasuns significantly surpassed expectations, as measured during the AAA on-site inspections.
For multi-night stays, we will not refresh rooms, but we will provide fresh towels and other amenities as needed.
