Bainbridge Island studio description

Skiff Point Guest House and Retreat has two inviting private and spacious units; The Loft Suite (which has the best views on the property offering panoramic views of Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, The Cascade Mountains and Seattle!). The Carriage House is in its own dwelling. Go to listing #565191 if you would like information on the Carriage House and would like to book a reservation.

The Loft suite has a kitchenette, basically a fully equipped kitchen, lovely living area, dining and sleeping areas offer casual elegance and comfort. Warm light fills the spacious two-story high-ceilinged suites. Relaxing private balcony expands your amazing views. Watch the boats go by and the eagles soar. The view does not get any better than this!

The Loft Suite offers a romantic feel and has the best views on the property! It has its own private garden entrance and is on a second level. You enter in and go up an inside staircase. Everything is on the main living area. Once you have made it up the stairs you are looking right out at Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, Cascade Mountains. From the comfortable living space you see it all including fabulous views of the water and Seattle!

To get to the master bedroom you will climb a very 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. Remember to book you summer trip early in advance. The Summer months fill up early so mark your calendars!

There is the Rolling Bay Cafe to get a cup of espresso or your favorite tea, cider or hot cocoa. This cafe offers daily baked pastries, breakfast sandwiches as well as lunches. Across the street is a mini market that carries all the basics you might need as well as a large selection of wines. Next door there is Villa Rosa which has the best Italian food around. Meatballs and lasagna are a favorite here. You can eat it in their bistro setting or bring it back to your suite to heat up and enjoy with a view.

The Ferry is located only 5 minutes away by car as well as the downtown area called 'Winslow'. You will find a lot of restaurants and boutiques, galleries and there is the new art museum.

              Skiff Point Guest House and Retreat has two inviting suites on the property. (The Loft Suite) and (The Carriage House, listing #565191). Inquire with your dates and I will respond quickly to let you know if it is available.

              Both units are with fully equipped living, dining and sleeping areas offer casual elegance and comfort. Warm lights fills the spacious two-story high-ceilinged suites. Relaxing decks expand your amazing views.

              The Loft Suite offers a romantic feel but offers the best views on the property. It has its own private garden entrance and is on a second level. There is a comfortable railed ladder on both sides with posts at the 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 and on a cloud as some guests have described! There is a flat screen television with Dish Satellite and blue ray player in the Loft living area as well as an LED television up in the bedroom. The Loft Suite has a fully equipped kitchenette to eat in if you desire to 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 new queen size pull out sofa that can sleep two people. Four people can comfortably enjoy this suite and offers you a beautiful getaway.

              The Carriage House is in a completely separate dwelling and sits further back on the property away from the bluff. The Loft Suite has the best location on the property. Just ask your hostess and she will be happy to accommodate you with any questions you may have. There is your own parking spot as well as additional parking for extra guests.

              Enjoy the lovely gardens ass well as the property grounds that offer a spectacular view. Walk down to the beach or enjoy the forest trails across the street.

              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. There is a local historic mercantile building located within walking distance that offers organic produce, garden plants, home nautical items as well as clothing and don't forget to get some freshly baked bread. There is also the Rolling Bay Cafe that offers daily baked fresh pastries and serves lunch. Across the street from the cafe is a mini market and an Italian Deli where you can eat in their bistro setting or bring back to your suite to cook up or re-heat. Their lasagna is the best! You have all you need if you do not feel like venturing out far. There is also Rolling Bay Winery down by Manitou Beach which is also located within walking distance to Skiff Point Guest House. We are located just short of 5 minutes drive from the Ferry terminal and downtown area. There is a new bus called 'The Frog Hopper' which is new this year. Travelers can pick the bus up at the Ferry Terminal for $7 and it takes you to the popular locations on the island including Rolling Bay Hay & Feed which is walking distance to Skiff Point, it also takes you to other locations like Lynnwood center for shops. the TreeHouse Cafe (great pizza) an event center, The Beach House Restaurant, and of course the Frog Hopper takes you to the historical 'Frog Rock'. This bus only runs July through September. We are hoping it will expand its months of operation and also it is possibility in expanding off the island. There is also Kitsap Tours which gives you a great historical tour.

              You will feel like you are really getting away here at this special place where memories begin and last a lifetime. Please call if you would like to inquire about availability and if you have any questions you'd like answered. As your hostess and innkeeper I am happy to accommodate you in anyway I can. You can go to our website to view more information at www.skiffpoint.com or go the our facebook page for links to area attractions and events. Hope to hear from you!

I have had guests that have returned every year after year 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 Studio:
              It's the location and the view that make guests fall in love with this private guest house/studio. 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 offers guests a view that you will never forget!
