Bainbridge Island house description

Waterfront luxury beach house with spectacular 180-degree views of Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Cascades, and the Seattle skyline from all living areas (including from bed in master bedroom). Private hot tub (May 15-Oct. 15). Located at Skiff Point on the eastern shore of Bainbridge Island, the Rising Moon Beach House is just a 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle, and only minutes by car from the ferry landing.

This vacation rental is the top two floors of a house perched on a coastal bluff overlooking Puget Sound. Spectacular in any season, its crown jewel is the master suite, with panoramic views of the mountains and Seattle from the queen bed and also from the deep soaking tub in a tiled, slate-floored bathroom.

Night and day, wildlife abounds along our coastal bluff. Many bird species are regularly seen, including bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, loons, swallows and songbirds. We have a year-round population of iridescent-throated hummingbirds that probably will visit you on the deck (you also can see them lying in bed in the master bedroom). We have seen (and heard) Orca whales from the yard, as well as pilot whales, sea lions, seals, and otters.

The master suite on the top floor consists of a large bedroom with a sitting area and loveseat, and a raised bed nook with a queen bed surrounded on the south and east by 7-foot long windows that afford a panoramic view of Puget Sound, the Seattle skyline and Mt. Rainier. A furnished deck off the master bedroom provides the same view, and is a delightful spot for your morning coffee. The second bedroom, also on the top floor with a queen bed, pampers your senses with its designer colors and views of the City, Puget Sound, and Mt. Rainier.

The living room features a gas fireplace, huge bay window, and cushioned window seat looking out to the water and professionally landscaped yard. Patio doors lead from the dining area to a large private deck for bar-b-ques. Or if you prefer to be even closer to the water, next to the bluff is a bluestone fire circle where you can build a campfire. Nothing is more relaxing than sitting next to a crackling fire, listening to the rhythm of the waves on the beach--unless it's soaking in the hot tub, which is accessed by a bluestone path around the side of the house, or lying in bed and watching the moon make a silver path across Puget Sound.

The ever-changing view from your windows and yard will include every variety of maritime traffic that plies the Puget Sound shipping lanes, from cargo ships heading into Elliott Bay, to tankers, cruise ships, tug boats, Coast Guard cutters, and even aircraft carriers.

It's an easy walk from the house to the historic Rolling Bay Cafe for your morning coffee, or the Island Music Center for an evening of jazz or bluegrass. Live theatre and musical performances are also offered at Bainbridge Performing Arts in Winslow, a 10-minute drive from the house.

Bainbridge Island has an abundance of excellent restaurants, seven artisan wineries and tasting rooms, two state parks, and the award-winning Bloedel Reserve with 150 acres of spectacular gardens, ponds, and trails. In season, you can bring your fishing gear and waders and try your luck in front of the house (access to the beach is just half a block down the street), or you can rent a kayak in Winslow and explore Bainbridge from the water. Most likely, though, you will want to spend most of your time enjoying the Beach House, where the stresses of the world melt away.

Your hosts live on site and are available if you need directions, suggestions for sightseeing, or any other assistance.
