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 as almond croissants, my grandmother's cinnamon rolls, and mini cakes. 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 great memories. This includes unique rooms with comfortable beds and fine linens, delicious breakfasts, homemade cookies, cakes, and pastries, an inviting living room with a fireplace, where you can unwind with a book or game and a cup of tea, and beautiful, lush gardens.
All of our guest rooms are unique and charming. Looking for a main floor room with a king size bed? The Summer room has both. Looking for a spacious room? Check out our Winter Suite or Indian Summer Carriage House suites. Both have queen size beds and lots of room. Seeking an economical rate? Take a look at our Spring and Autumn rooms, our 2 smaller upstairs rooms with double and extra long double beds respectively. Or, give us a call, and we'll help you decide.
We offer free high speed internet, a guest refrigerator in the main kitchen, coffee, tea, and cocoa whenever you'd like, and amenities such as blowdryers, robes, irons, and ironing boards in every room.
We are a non-smoking inn. Children 12 and over are welcome. Pets are not allowed as some of our guests have allergies.
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 Caroline's pastries or cookies under the pergola today while 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, 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 love sharing this beautiful home and gardens with guests, hearing guest stories, and providing outstanding hospitality and service to ensure that everyone has a restful and memorable stay.
