An interesting alternative lodging—especially for families and groups—is one of the former officers’ homes in Fort Worden State Park (360/344-4400). The 32 houses have mostly been refitted with Victorian-style furnishings and modern conveniences. These cozy homes sleep 7–14 guests. Rates begin at $104 per night for a one-bedroom apartment unit and go up to $375 for an 11-bedroom barracks. Because of their popularity—especially during summer festivals—reservations for these houses should be made far in advance.
