Plan your next getaway to this charming coastal town in Washington. Our Westport vacation rentals afford a true Pacific Northwest beach experience—with temperatures in summertime hovering below 70 degrees, you can skip the bikini or swim trunks. Visitors flock to this area every year for its beautiful ocean views, to watch surfers ride the tumultuous waves, and to taste incredible local seafood.
With a population of about 2,000 people, Westport is ideal for its cozy, small-town vibe. It’s 130 miles from Seattle—and a popular day-trip for the city’s residents—and only a few hours from the dramatic landscape found in the Olympic National Forest. Whether you’re craving a day of exploration in the city, or in the trees, Westport is perfect for a home base.
Just because you won’t be laying out in the sun doesn’t mean there’s a lack of beach activities. Ascend the spiral stairs of Gray’s Harbor Lighthouse—the tallest in Washington—to watch the waves crashing on the shoreline. If you’re in Westport on strictly-seafood business, be sure to stop at one of the eateries along Westhaven Drive for grilled tuna steaks or hearty fish and chips. The marina is a nice place to take a stroll and is full of activity, with boats and fishing trawlers returning with the catch of the day. The Maritime Museum is also nearby, featuring displays of lighthouse lenses and whale skeletons.
If it’s outdoor adventure that you seek, our Westport house rentals are about two hours from the unrivaled scenery of the Olympic National Forest. Be sure to take a day trip to this special place teeming with moss-covered trees, roiling blue waters, and craggy mountain peaks.
Come experience for yourself what makes this unique beach town so unforgettable. Check out our Westport vacation rentals today—you’ll love this perfect slice of Northwestern coastal life.
