There is a rock fire pit on the beach side for roasting smores and sitting around a campfire with loved one's. We just purchased a propane fire pit for the deck to keep you warm during Pacific NW chilly evenings. We have converted the boathouse into a unique and charming bunk house with a full bed and a daybed, a dresser for your belongings, with a door that opens up to the lagoon, and a heater. It is better than spending the night anywhere else. We have full speed internet wifi, HBO and television, washer and dryer, full kitchen, barbecue, outdoor beach fire pit, outdoor deck propane fireplace, extra bunk house, washer, dryer, children friendly, great parking, privacy, your own lagoon to swim right out your door, the puget sound to boat and swim in, romantic, away from it all, tourist attraction, cook in or go out, a complete stay with more than everything you could possibly need.

This adorable cabin's charm is quintessential Pacific NW chic. Located at the end of the spit with privacy abound. The entire house has been updated and remodeled to fit all your modern desires with the old-charm feel. Kayaking, swimming, beach walks or simply lounging on the deck which sits over the lagoon. Full sun from sunrise to sunset, the best of both worlds. Abundant wildlife, eagles, herons, seals, otters, waves lapping in the foreground, all the serenity of the beach at your disposal.

Our beach house has everything you could possibly want and more. 2 bedrooms with queen size new beds, luxurious linens, pull-out coach with tempurpedic pad, loft with an office and a separate inviting bedroom with a twin bed all with spectacular views of the puget sound, and mountains. The dining room, is separate for great entertaining. There is one full bath, a living room with a gas fireplace. There is a unique and stunning boat house that has been converted into a bunk house and is over the lagoon on piers. There are wrap around decks with a BBQ, tons of seating, umbrellas, and on the other side of the house is a beach with a fire pit for cooking smores, and sitting around with friends and family. Swim in the lagoon which is warmer than the other side; beach towels provided.

Walk down the spit and find an incredible public Park, called Fay Bainbridge, one of the best beaches on all of Bainbridge Island. Take long walks on pebbled and sandy beaches for miles. Just 10 minutes from the main town to shop and pick up your groceries to cook in. If you desire to eat out, there are a plethora of tasty restaurants situated all over Bainbridge. A short 35 minute ferry ride delivers you to Seattle and all it offers: Pike Place Market, The Seattle Center with the Space Needle and Chihuly Exhibit, the Aquarium and Zoo and much more. It's all here waiting for you!

Please note: Check-in is 4 PM and Check-Out is 11 AM.

Thank you and enjoy your best stay ever!

Lovely little cottage in a beautiful setting. Accommodations were superb. Many nice details in the cottage. Beds were super comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped and the owner, Carhy, was really nice to deal with.

Wonderful little gem.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful beach house in a great location. Quiet and peaceful and decorated perfectly. The house is stocked with everything you could need. Even in the kitchen! We really enjoyed combing the beaches and kayaking. Loved watching the seals, dolphins and the birds. Lots of great things to look at during low tide. Anemones, crabs, jelly fish, oysters, clams, snails and tons of sand dollars! Really enjoyed the fire on the beach. Thanks to Cathy's husband for having it built and ready to light! Close enough to see the sights, shopping and ferries but you feel like your far away from everyone. Thanks for a great stay and for sharing your little piece of the beach with us.

Really enjoyed our short getaway to Bainbridge Island! The house was nicely appointed, kitchen well-stocked and the beds very comfortable. We were able to take the kayaks out and even saw a seal! Cathy was responsive when we had questions. Really enjoyed staying at this property!

Cosy and beautifully decorated house in the most perfect setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at High Tides Too. The house is ideally located between a lagoon and the sound. We had breakfast on the deck directly overlooking the lagoon, and apéritif on the beach. The owner, Cathy, made sure we had everything we needed... From kayaks, to a ready-to-light fire pit, she puts some serious thought into the well-being of her guests. Well-stocked kitchen, beautiful decoration, high quality beddings, great outdoor sitting areas, amazing views... this house is simply perfect.
