Heather, an elopement photographer from Seattle, wanted to celebrate her birthday with family and friends.  She and her husband, their toddler, her childhood best friend, and her two rescue dogs headed up to Port Ludlow for a vacation.
 
The Port Townsend area has a special place in her heart, as it’s where she and her husband got engaged.  It’s not their first time staying in Port Ludlow and they know and enjoy how quiet and restful it is. She chose to stay at Port Ludlow Vacation Rentals company, a member of the Vortex VIP lodging managers group.

VIP: What made you come out to Pintails Lodge for your birthday?
 
Heather: We chose it because it was dog friendly, it was on the water, it looked so cozy and inviting, and it’s close to Port Townsend.  
 
VIPs: Glad you thought it looked cozy and inviting!  Was it that way in real life compared to the pictures?  
 
Heather: It was.  It was so welcoming, well appointed, it had great energy, it was cozy, and we loved the water views.
 
We also hadn’t known about the carriage house.  It was such a great set up for us.  My best friend stayed there, and my toddler didn’t wake her in the morning.  The floor plan was great.
 
VIP: What activities did you do while you were in town?
 
Heather: This trip we just chilled together after a really busy season, but the next time I come down I’m bringing my paddle board.
 
VIP: You have your own paddle board?
 
Heather: I really love paddle boarding.  Because the house is right on the water, I’ll bring my own and I’ll be able to go paddle boarding as much as I would like.
 
VIP: Sounds like a great plan!  I hope even without the paddle board you left your vacation feeling relaxed and rested?
 
Heather: Oh my goodness, yes.
 
VIP: You said “the next time”.  Do you think you’ll come back?
 
Heather: We’re already planning to book again with my parents in May or June.
 
VIP: Thanks, Heather!  Can’t wait to have you back again.

Sponsor: Pintails Lodge – Picture yourself sitting back with your eyes closed - the gentle sea breeze blowing through your hair. The faint call of the elegant pintail ducks waivers in and out of your earshot as the sweet and salty smell of the sun hitting the bay wafts across your face. Sit on the veranda overlooking the marina and enjoy the sailboats puttering out toward the crystal blue waters of the Puget Sound, almost weightless in the calm waters. The sunlight dances on the surface and shimmers like gold. – (Click here for Pintails Lodge)
