The Loft Suite offers a romantic feel but offers the best views on the property. It has its own entrance and is on a second level. You enter in and go up an inside staircase. Everything is on the main living area. There is a comfortable and beautifully done railed ladder that has rails on both sides, posts at bottom and top with a ballast that takes you up to a sumptuous queen size bed up in a loft. You'll view Puget Sound and have a fantastic view of Mt. Baker and you will feel like you're sleeping in the treetops! There is a flat screen television and DVD/Blue Ray player in the Loft living area as well as a television up in the bedroom. The Loft Suite has a fully equipped kitchenette so you can eat in if you desire. You can cook and enjoy the lights of Seattle from the dining table as well as everywhere else on the main living area. The bathroom has an old fashioned claw bathtub with shower. This unit also has a brand new queen size sleeper sofa that can sleep two people. This sleeper is very comfortable as it has had some added comfort to it for a good nights sleep! Four people can comfortably enjoy this suite and offers you a beautiful getaway.
Lose yourself on our country island with beach walks, unique shops, galleries, great restaurants and world-famous Blodell Reserve. The majestic Olympics, historic attractions and Seattle are all within easy reach. Your Hostess and Inn Keeper will assure you have a memorable visit. Short and Long term stays are available.

ReviewsWrite a review
First of all THANK YOU Kristin for providing such a wonderful, high-quality, nurturing weekend getaway for me and my husband. We are from Kirkland but needed a weekend to ourselves. Your loft studio provided the perfect environment for connection, meditation, creativity, and even cooking! You treated us to amazing chocolate and the amenities were equal to any 4 star hotel. You provided the best sheets, towels, soaps, and even robes! You've decorated the place with warms and art and comfort. I highly recommend the loft studio and the property, which includes the Carriage House. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Even in the middle of the winter (it snowed while we were there!) it's a beautiful view with lots to do (but we chose to just stay in the studio the WHOLE time!). The only thing about the loft studio that one needs to be mindful of is that the bedroom is a loft... it's up a ladder into a comfortable room. So if you are afraid of heights rent the Carriage House otherwise it's a perfect "nest" to sleep in!

About the owner: Skiff Point Guest House was originally founded by Janice Parker. Jan's daughter; Kristin is the owner and hostess carrying on her mother's legacy. Kristin has been running the inn over the past three plus years now. This is a very special place to myself and my guests. I have had guests that have returned every year for the past many years which makes this a home away from home for many of my guests who have become dear friends. 'Come as strangers and leave as friends'. Following in my mother's footsteps I am carrying on her legacy..... I love making this a special place for my guests, giving them a wonderful place to stay and enjoy. I always leave little special touches for my guests including treats like dark chocolate, perhaps a bottle of wine for those that are staying for a week or more, fresh flowers, bath salts, and more... I want my guests to feel like they are really getting a treat and I love being an innkeeper. Your comfort is so important to me! My mother tastefully decorated the units with her gift of interior designing and a great eye for beauty! I had made some wonderful changes to the suites and am continuing to make upgrades to the units to make them more luxurious and inviting for everyone to enjoy. As your hostess I am happy to help you make your travel plans, personally talk to you about any questions you might have and provide all that I can to make your visit that much more special.
Why the Owner Chose Bainbridge Island:
Why pick Skiff Point Guest House & Retreat? The view and beautiful surroundings with privacy! You also will feel the peacefulness this place has to offer. Skiff Point Guest House & Retreat is family owned and has been passed down to myself and my brother from our mother. She loved this place and wanted it to be a special retreat for guests to enjoy and go away with long lasting memories feeling pampered and rested.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It's the location and the view that make guests fall in love with this home. You will feel the sea water breezes coming up off the bluff, watching the bald eagles soar and simply relaxing will give you all that you need to have a relaxing getaway. The Loft Suite offers a romantic setting and the Carriage House also offers the same but each unit has its own feel. The Carriage House is great for families as it's layout is a bit more spacious and offers a little more privacy for all. There are two queen size beds and the master bedroom closes off with French Doors so you have plenty of privacy from other family and friends that may be accompanying you. The Loft Suite is so romantic and you will enjoy a view that you will never forget!
