Bainbridge Island cottage description

Welcome to Bainbridge Island! We are happy to share our cozy little cottage with visitors from near and far who come to find out what island living is all about! Just a beautiful 35 minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle and a short 3 mile drive or cab ride from the Bainbridge Ferry terminal, leave your mainland worries behind and come stay in this quaint, well-cared-for 1930s farmer's cottage. The views of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound from all the rooms in the house are soothing and spectacular. Bed is a full-sized bed (smaller than a queen) due to room size restrictions. A cot is also available with advance notice. Enjoy fresh-brewed Pacific Northwest coffee every morning as you watch the eagles soar over the Bay, then go for a walk along Manitou Beach, just a 2 minute stroll down the hill. Head to island favorite Bay Hay & Feed for morning coffee, pastries and conversation, just 8 minutes away, and while you’re there check out their amazing plants, garden supplies, and general store.

The Northwest is meant to be moist, so if it's raining you can hole up in the cottage with board games or a movie, but if you're adventurous (or you come in the summer, and it's gorgeous) grab a complimentary umbrella and head out to explore all the island has to offer. The Bloedel Reserve or Bainbridge Gardens will delight with their botanical wonders. Sample some of our seven island wineries or spend the day checking out the art galleries and shops along Winslow Way. In the evening, enjoy dinner in Winslow or nearby Lynwood Center, pick up some amazing Italian take-out from nearby Via Rosa (1/2 mile from the cottage), or make a meal in our cozy but well-stocked kitchen. At night meet up with friends at one of the island pubs, enjoy a movie at one of the two island cinemas, or hit the blackjack table or dance floor at nearby Suquamish Clearwater Casino, just across the Agate Pass Bridge connecting the island to the Kitsap Peninsula.

Speaking of the Peninsula, use Bainbridge as your home base while you explore surrounding Northwest favorites like Poulsbo (aka Little Norway on the Fjord), Port Gamble’s with its 1850s logging town activities, Port Townsend with its historic Victorian charm and the amazing Olympic National Forest.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: We grew up in Memphis, TN and Seattle, WA but we have lived on Bainbridge Island since 2003 and just love it here. Our kids are getting older so we're planning to down-size eventually, possibly to this lovely property. In the meantime we're happy to share it with visitors so they can come to love this place like we do.

              Why the Owner Chose Bainbridge Island:
              Close to the beach, full sun, right in the middle of the island, close to everything - what more could you ask for?

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              - Beautiful view of Mt. Rainier & the water - Lots of sun - SO close to the beach. Nice beach combing. - Huge yard. Great for dogs who like to run/fetch - Great spot for walking/running/biking - Just 1/2 mile walk to Bay Hay & Feed & to Rolling Bay Cafe (excellent cup of coffee). - Close to the ferry and downtown Winslow Way with all its amenities.
