"For two weeks, including the Thanksgiving Holiday for 2014, our family enjoyed this very warm and cozy beach house. It ended up to be a perfect place for the 7 of us who were there, including our three grandchildren ages 5, 8 and 11 plus their dog. The view was spectacular since the home is right on the beach. During our stay, we had snow with freezing conditions for a couple of days which only enhanced the view. Our daughter, son-in-law & their children enjoyed fishing from the bank out front and we all went on beach walks to search for shells & treasures. The 4 bedrooms with queen sized beds were most comfortable with exceptional bedding. Brent, the home's owner was easy to contact with any questions or concerns regarding the house. We can only imagine what it would be like to spend time at this home during the summer where one could spend most days on the deck & sand. We look forward to our next stay! Mike & Carol"

"First, I would like to thank Katherine and Al for their gracious hospitality during April 2015. “Wow” as my wife said. My wife and I celebrated our second year anniversary and yes, our honeymoon at the same time. We spent 10 nights visiting many cities and I left Seattle for the last few evenings. I am originally from Seattle and knew what to expect from the Puget Sound.
The views of Seattle in the morning and especially in the evening are so spectacular. Viewing the Puget Sound with the binoculars (two sets) was even more surreal from the living room. Waking up with your loved one with the sunshine and vivid blue sky was heart breaking. In the master bedroom, we felt connected to our surroundings.
Being one that goes to sleep late, I wandered the house reading some of the books about Bainbridge Island. There are two books on the piano, but I read one in particular that shared the rich history of Bainbridge Island late into the wee hours. Each member of your family would enjoy the historic photos and hearing the ringleader of the house reading the history of this island.
We took a two-mile walk around the house and my wife was a happy butterfly being able to experience what the Rising Moon Beach House has to offer. During our walk, she totally enjoyed the experience of seeing old Western Red Cedars and Fir trees surrounding the island, beautiful homes that all complimented each other and especially Katherine’s & Al’s hospitality and home made this a five star experience.
I received “The” blessing from My Wife that she would like to relocate to the Seattle area, especially Bainbridge Island when I retire in the near future. She is already planning to build a small house on land that I purchased many years ago on the Key Peninsula. Smiles and thank you Katherine & Al.
Explore the house and experience the beauty that Katherine and Al want all to feel in your Heart and Soul. Open the book at the living room window and write about your thoughts, feelings and experience before you must go back to reality….Work. There is a special message that my wife left in the book for those that dare to experience what she is sharing. I know the message was in total bliss. This message is for all, yet I was asked not to read as this special message for you.
P.S. The pantry at the house is well equipped so be aware as I was forewarned. The house is very clean and well maintained. The landscaping in the front and back yard was impeccable."

"This suite provided us with everything we needed. The view is amazing! Watching boats, ships, and even rowing teams was a real treat for us. The patio has some really cool brickwork and lots of little extra details. The interior is cozy and well maintained. We regret we could not stay longer. We plan to return soon. By the way...for knitters there is a lovely shop downtown!"
