DIRECTIONS TO CHEVY CHASE BEACH CABINS
The Seattle/Bainbridge and Edmonds/Kingston ferries leave about every
45-60 minutes. The Keystone/Port Townsend ferry leaves about every 90
minutes and is occasionally subject to tide closures (we highly recommend
reservations). You do not need reservations, but do be prepared to wait
during peak travel times (3pm-7pm on Friday is the busiest). Visit http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/schedules/current
for a current schedule.
Via the Downtown Seattle/Bainbridge Island Ferry:
Take the Bainbridge Island ferry from the downtown Seattle waterfront
on Pier 52 (801 Alaskan Way). Follow Hwy 305 straight through Winslow
and Poulsbo. Merge on to Hwy 3 North towards the Hood Canal Bridge. Cross
the Hood Canal Bridge and follow the directions below*.
Via the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry:
From I-5, follow signs for the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry, exit 177. Follow
Hwy 104 to the ferry terminal, and once off the ferry continue on Hwy
104 through Kingston and Port Gamble and follow the signs to Hood Canal
Bridge. Cross the Hood Canal Bridge and follow the directions below*.
From Sea-Tac Airport and Tacoma:
You have a number of options when traveling from the airport and the Tacoma
area to the Olympic Peninsula, and traffic is a major variable. You can
either travel North on I-5 towards Seattle and follow the directions for
the Downtown/Bainbridge Ferry or the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry. The other
option is to head through Tacoma and travel across the Kitsap Peninsula.
The Tacoma route could be fastest if you would be battling peak ferry
hours (3pm to 7pm) and commuter traffic, but the ferries could prove faster
if the Tacoma Narrows Bridge is backed up. Either way, you should be able
to get to Port Townsend in about 2.5 hours if traffic and ferries cooperate.
Driving Around: Take I-5 South towards Portland. Merge on to Hwy 16 West
via exit 132 (towards Gig Harbor/Bermerton/Sprague Ave.) and cross the
Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Hwy 16 West becomes Hwy 3 North. Turn left on Hwy
104 West and cross the Hood Canal Bridge. Follow the directions below*.
the Hood Canal Bridge:
About 5 miles after crossing the Hood Canal Bridge you will see a sign
for Chimacum/Port Townsend, Hwy 19. Take that right. Follow that road
10 miles and pass straight through Chimacum (not much to see-a cafe, school,
etc) and Port Hadlock. When you are just out of Port Hadlock you will
see a Carpet One on the right. Take the left immediately after Carpet
One (Four Corners Road), and follow that road for a mile. If you reach
the airport you have missed the Four Corners Road turn. Continue straight
at the stop sign where you will see a Shell gas station and the intersection
of Hwy 20. At this point, the road turns in to South Discovery Road. Follow
the road for about another mile and you will see a large white Victorian
home on your left--3710 South Discovery Road. If you reach the golf course
you've gone too far. The office is located on the side of the house with
the large, mossy elm trees.
From the WA Coast, Victoria BC, Port Angeles and

for about 6 miles. Follow directions below.**
From Olympia and Portland, OR:

Angeles). Turn right on Hwy 20 and continue straight for about 6 miles.
**Take a left at South Discovery Road (you will see the Shell gas station
on your right). Follow the road for about a mile and you will see a large
white Victorian home on your left--3710 South Discovery Road. If you reach
the golf course you've gone too far. The office is located on the side
of the house with the large, mossy elm trees.
From British Columbia, Bellingham and Whidbey Island:
If you are not already on Whidbey Island: from 1-5 South
take exit 230 toward Hwy 20 (Anacortes/San Juan Ferry). Continue on Hwy
20 across Deception Pass and across Whidbey Island. Follow signage to
the Keystone ferry at the South end of Whidbey Island. Follow directions
from Downtown Port Townsend.***

***From Downtown Port Townsend:
If you are arriving on the Keystone Ferry, take a left from the ferry
dock (downtown Port Townsend is to the right), and follow the main road
(Hwy 20/Sims Way) out of town for approximately 2 miles until you reach
a stoplight at Mill Road/Discovery Road. Take a right at the light (you
will be at the "Welcome to Port Townsend" sign) and an immediate
left on to Discovery Road. Follow Discovery Road for about 3.5 miles.
Turn in to the driveway of the large white Victorian home on your right,
just past the Discovery Bay Golf Course--3710 South Discovery Road. The
office is located on the side of the house with the large, mossy elm trees.
