Discover the BEST sandy beach on Puget Sound! Enjoy an unobstructed, breathtaking view of Seattle, Bainbridge Island, and Mount Rainier from atop a south facing bluff.
Plan your day as the morning tide rolls gently in and out of the bay. Smell the salt air and indulge in the sounds of a beach awakening. Watch as bald eagles soar in clear sight, and herons search for their perfect morning catch. Otters play, dogs fetch and people stroll. Welcome the fresh evening air, as the lights of the Seattle skyline decorate the night sky.
This rural residential area, is just south of Kingston on the part of Puget Sound called Port Madison. It was originally established (in 1916) as a summer community for Seattleites. The Indianola dock, built when the Mosquito Fleet boats supplied the majority of transportation on Puget Sound, was easy access for weekending families. Now this local landmark has been converted for recreational use (shortened to 870 feet), and the center of on-going local activity.
THE PERFECT PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION, ROMANTIC ESCAPE, GIRLS GETAWAY, OR COMPANY RETREAT!
Indianola is conveniently located just one hour from downtown Seattle via a 35 minute (Seattle/Bainbridge) ferry ride, and another 25 minute drive to PARADISE. You can also take the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry (10 minutes from the Beach House), or drive around via the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. We are MINUTES to Suquamish, Poulsbo, Kingston, and Bainbridge Island, and just seven miles from the popular Clearwater Casino.
Bring your own boat and launch it at the public boat ramp in Suquamish, and moor it to our buoy. The months of April through the end of October, we provide 2 small dinghies and six (single person) kayaks for your use - lifevests included! Enjoy DIRECT beach access from the patio.
