A west coast replica of George Washington’s Mount Vernon, that serves today as a first-class Bed and Breakfast inn and lavender farm in his namesake state, turned 5 years old on February 16, 2013. George Washington Inn® held its Grand Opening in 2008 on the Saturday of Presidents Day weekend. It’s five year anniversary happens to fall on a Saturday as well.
The owners and innkeepers, Dan and Janet Abbott, are grateful to each of the builders who had a part in its construction and the hundreds of guests who have stayed in this unique inn facility over its short history. The surrounding ten acres, now being converted into a lavender farm, enhance the beautiful setting with the oceanfront and Olympic Mountains providing a breathtaking panorama. Here are a few of the pictures that were taken of the construction process and the eventful day that opened the inn. The inn has become a crown jewel along the bluff between Sequim and Port Angeles. The Olympic Peninsula has never been the same since.
George Washington Inn has a bronze plaque over the front door that reads: “Dedicated to the Glory of God and to the Faith of George Washington – February 16, 2008”. May it continue its mission for many more years as people come to share this incredible gem along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, in the shadow of the Olympic National Park and the Olympic Mountains.
