Your Host, Marilou Sullivan
Welcome to Port Townsend, my hometown.
I want to help you enjoy this wonderful place where my family has lived for more than 100 years.
About Accommodations and More is a business that treats you how I like to be treated as a traveler: with courtesy, honesty, promptness and personality.
I’ve been in the overnight accommodations business since 2001 although I managed my first apartment building in 1973 while working for Alaska Power & Telephone Co. After rising to Vice President of Personnel and Regulatory Affairs, in 1998 I retired to be more available for my children. A successful stint as president of the Kiwanis Club of Port Townsend, at that time the second largest such club on the West Coast, highlighted my years of community service.
A friend requested my help in 2001 managing a Port Townsend romantic getaway, The Big Red Barn. My reputation as a businessperson, and an event coordinator, has led other property owners to recruit my services. I am fortunate to only work with and for people I respect and properties I love, because that translates into a great experience for our guests. It’s also a family business involving my husband and three daughters.
I enjoy the hospitality business. Although all of the properties are managed with self check-in procedures, I am just a phone call away and meet many guests personally. It’s the personal touches I offer that make a difference: Advice on ferry travel and parking, dinner destinations, accommodating children and/or pets, working with wedding parties or family reunions, and simply making your experience the best possible.
