About Pat McShane

We have been fans of Bainbridge Island for a very long time and when the opportunity to acquire this home arose, we couldn't resist. We have spent over three decades managing award winning hotels and saw this house as a great chance to blend our professional experience with a love for the island.

Both of us are avid cyclists, and kayakers which are some of the many outdoor activities that you can enjoy on Bainbridge.

We hope you have the opportunity to stay with us and enjoy all that our location has to offer.

Pat McShane purchased this house in 2012

Why Pat McShane chose Bainbridge Island

We fell in love with this house because of the stunning view of Seattle and Puget Sound from every room in the house. The other advantages are its low traffic south island location, great cycling, kayaking, diving and wonderful light filled rooms.

What makes this house unique

This is a great house for activities such as sipping coffee while watching the sun come up over Seattle and the cascades, sitting on the beach with a campfire or just walking the dog to Halls Hill Overlook.

For those wanting more physical activities the south island location is convenient to cycling over to Lynnwood for a morning pastry, jumping on one of the hiking trails close by or kayaking to Blakely harbor.

Rockaway Beach Road is one of most sought after locations on the island because of its outstanding views and quiet south island location. The south end of the island is the quieter location and does not have the traffic of 305 to contend with.

Wow

  • 5 of 5

The only reason we would hesitate to write a review is because this place is so spectacular, we want to be selfish and keep this hidden gem to ourselves. Then we won't have to worry about availability!

Honestly Pat & Carla - thank you for sharing your lovely property with us. We look forward to returning in the future.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This home is as nice as it appears in all the other reviews. It is perfectly furnished with everything you can even imagine you need. The beds are very comfortable. The home feels warm and welcoming. The views are mesmerizing. Once we got to the home, we just wanted to stay in the relaxing environment and skip the hustle of the city. Traveling back and forth to Seattle was quick and painless on the ferry whether by foot or car. Both bedrooms are upstairs and share a bath. The loft queen bedroom has no doors so the privacy is limited. The loft is directly over the kitchen and living area so there's no closing your door and sleeping in! Of course, this place is too beautiful to sleep in! Pat is a responsive and helpful owner. I would highly recommend Pat's home and hope to stay here again myself in the future.

We spent four days and it was truly amazing. The home is very well equipped, the area is beautiful and the view - oh my - the view is spectacular. We will absolutely be back to this home in the future. Pat and Carla take very good care of their guests and it was a joy to spend time in their home. Very highly recommend!!!

A perfect home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Bainbridge Island is a great location....easy access to Seattle as well as to activities on the peninsula; this home could not be nicer or the owners more accommodating. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay, much of it just watching the activity on Puget Sound. We hope to return for even longer than the 8 days we spent here this summer.

Rockaway Review

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Rockaway home July 11-18 ,2017 and it was everything we had hoped for. The setting is excellent.Close enough to town to have easy access to all Winslow offers,but distant enough to feel we were living at the beach. There is a large Masterbedroom that is very comfortable and a queen bed in the loft,on the second floor. Ample washroom and laundry facilities. The owners have tried to,anticipate the needs of their guestsmandmthe property is very well supplied.

And then there are the views. The ocean and mountain views are spectacular.A very special place. The only concern that one might have is to note that if you have young children, there is a fairly large opening at the stairwell on the second floor so you have to keep an eye on the kids to make certain there are no mishaps.

All in all, an excellent vacation property and excellent hosts.

Ray and Linda Rutman
