Old Alcohol Plant Inn

Constructed in 1910, the Old Alcohol Plant building was originally owned and operated by Charles H. Adams, father of the famous photographer Ansel Adams.

Classen Chemical Company made alcohol out of sawdust at this plant, closing it’s doors in 1913, remaining quiet for 65 years.

In 1978, Ray Hansen set sights on the building shell and the potential it presented. Investing nine years and over $4 million, Ray and his wife Jeanne created a hotel and resort called the Inn at Port Hadlock.

After several changes in ownership, government officials closed the doors on the Inn at Port Hadlock in 2011 due to taxes owed. A small group of local philanthropists saw potential in the property, purchased and renovated it, then reopened the hotel in 2016 with a mission in mind and a new, old name. 

The walls of this sturdy hotel provide lodging for community members in need, create jobs to enhance our economy, and provide a beautiful waterfront location for private events and classes.


“This is a fabulous venue. the food was terrific the surface was terrific the decorations were wonderful and the people that work there are very accommodating. We looked at the rooms because our friends were going to stay there and the suite we looked at was just amazing. We can't believe that we have such a nice place to have an event eat a meal or send people for a room in Port hadlock Washington.” -Theda C

“The staff was helpful and very accommodating. The location is a short drive from either the Seattle/Bainbridge Ferry or the Edmonds/Kingston or if you choose you can drive around with easy access from Tacoma. Amazing location for all the adventure you may be looking for; be it outdoor hiking, boating, food, music, as well as the Arts. The Inn even has a full rotating Art Gallery. Live music on the weekends and a very inclusive PNW menu. This venue would also be an incredible place for events and weddings.” -The Content Scout (travel blogger)
