Nice to see that these buildings are kept up and being used consistently. We were in town 4th of a July, what a fun spot for an Old Fashioned Fourth! Kudos Port Townsend! Can't wait to visit again.

Sorry - I don't know their policy about cancellations because I live nearby. Contact them right away though, so someone else can take the spot. They are in high demand I hear.
