Why diane kurzontkowski chose Bainbridge Island
we found these cottages and the location reminiscent of cape cod where we grew up - "sweep out" cottages, great for a romantic get-away or piling the whole family in. We love the location, warm in the summer protected from the northern winds, southwestern exposure for lovely sunsets. We like being able to walk 1 block to the movie theatre, bakery/deli, morning latte, 3 restaurants and a small grocery store. Our favorite activities include hiking and biking from the cottages.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottages are so close to Seattle, a 35 minute ferry ride, but a world apart. Step back in time to your own classic cottages!

Perfect Place for a Work Retreat
The cottage was just perfect for the four of us to get away from all the other things to do at home and focus in on this intense project. The beds were very comfortable and the sofa is almost the size of a twin bed and has the best view in the house. It was also great to sit around the living room and brainstorm but also take a mental break to watch the ferry come and go at the mouth of the bay where the cottage was situated. Great grocery shopping at the Town and Country Market and local dining were also big pluses. I would really love to come here for a vacation because working here was fantastic.
You and your team were fantastic guests. We are so happy you were able to enjoy the views and comfort of the cottage while on your work trip. Also glad to hear you were able to take advantage of the local restaurants. We are really very lucky! Come back in the warmer months and you'll be treated to outside live music at the wine bar just down the street and time in the hammock at the beach ! -Diane
Heavenly Beach Front Retreat
Pleasant Beach Cottage, perched on the shores of Rich Passage, is a dream come true. This charming vintage home, with tasteful updates that have made it cozy and comfortable, make it the perfect retreat. Add in nearby Fort Ward Park and it's many beautiful hiking trails half-a-mile south; and Lynwood Town Center, complete with an excellent bakery, movie theatre and numerous good restaurants (we specifically recommend Beach House) half-a-block north; and the result can only be described as heavenly. Just as important is that Diane could not be a better host. She is gracious and generous, responds quickly to questions or problems, and clearly cares deeply about the guests experience. Thank you for making the summer of 2018 one of our best ever. We are already planning our return trip.
Lovely location, not a 5 star property
Enjoyed the location right on the water. Did not enjoy the absolutely filthy upholstery both indoors and outdoors. It's hard to be comfortable when there is nowhere to sit. Additionally, the kitchen lacked the basic elements to prepare meals. Would not return.
My sincere apologies for your experience. The outdoor cushions indeed were tired, but always brushed clean between visits. We now have brand new upholstery on the outdoor patio sofa and chairs! The inside furniture covers are washed periodically, and if they were need of washing before your visit, I do apologize. I will be getting a new manager for when i am out of town so that no one experiences this again. As for the kitchen, there are two sets of cooking ware as well as utensils and cooking oil, salt, pepper, herbs. I have found that is always appreciated and enough. We do not stock a full pantry or refrigerator; only the basics. I am sorry if that was not made clear.
I am glad to hear you enjoyed the view and location.
Great place to stay. We will be back. Couple of issues but the location can't be beat.
Location near Lynwood is incredible. The location on the bay is just tremendous. Totally an outdoor place. You find yourself on the back porch, back yard, porch over the water or in the water a lot of the time.
House is old, there were zero pots and pans, we had to buy our own from Costco. The clawfoot tub is cool looking but for those who shower it is a little difficult to navigate. The bottom is not flat, it curves down so you really have to think about balance. I actually told my sister to stay elsewhere because there was no way she could stand in the tub.
The owner is very responsive and that was great. I probably could have told her about the pans for cooking but we just got our own.
In the end we will likely go back. We have family on the island and now that I am used to the tub it should be just fine!!!
I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the cottage and the location!
I must admit I am absolutely baffled by the fact that you were without pots and pans though! ....Unless the last renter absconded with all the cooking ware and the housekeeper didn’t notice (i was out of town but usually personally check the house all the drawers and supplies)? I do apologize and of course you should not have had to purchase those. I will check the cottage as soon as the present renters check out.
Family of 5 enjoyed our time at this charming beach house!
This is one of my most favorite places to visit when I come to Washington. The location is perfect with the nearby shopping, restaurants, and easy access to the ferry. We were able to walk on the BI/Seattle Ferry to enjoy a quick afternoon trip to Seattle, making back just in time for dinner at the house. We loved enjoying the beach, sunset, watching the ferry cross, and the backyard is perfect for playing catch and having dinner near the water. The home was clean & comfortable and fit our family of 5 perfectly. The owner is very accommodating & was great with her communications. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beach house! We hope to return soon.
so happy you enjoyed your stay! we are lucky to be near the bakery, good wine bar and restaurant, and still have a quiet back yard on the beach to share with otters and eagles :).
we welcome you back anytime!
Fantastic and great location
Quintessential beach/cottage house! Adorable!
thank you! we call it a "sweep out" cottage - nothing too fancy - - just a classic 1930s cottage on the beach - we feel it's really all anyone needs and are so glad you enjoyed it.
Bainbridge Island is rich in the arts, has fantastic restaurants and wineries and great biking and hiking right outside the door of the cottages. Bainbridge Island is located a short 35 minute ferry ride from Downtown Seattle.
