Perfect Place for a Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

Beautiful piece of waterfront property with well-maintained lawn that slopes gently to the water. Great photo opportunities each day as the Seattle- Bremerton ferry sails by almost hourly. The house is a cute place, clean, nicely decorated, and has an adequately-equipped kitchen. The bed in the main bedroom was extremely comfortable. The house seems to be poorly insulated, though, and is quite drafty, so it is not so good for a winter-time rental. I was able to stay warm while I was there by keeping the thermostat turned up, but the furnace ran almost continually. The antique claw-foot tub in the bathroom looks cute, but special care must be taken climbing in and out for showering as there are no hand-holds or grab bars - so renters who are in the "senior" age bracket should just be aware of this potential hazard. Despite these criticisms, I would highly recommend this place as a summer rental for anyone who enjoys a gorgeous spot on the water.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our waterfront cottage and the comforts within! As you may have noticed, we have several new windows (in the kitchen and dining room) and will continue to replace more for better insulation. In the meantime, cozy down comforters and a good heating system will hopefully do the job. Hope to have you back in the summer or any time !

Perfect Girlfriend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our girls trip was made even more special by staying in the Pleasant Beach Cottage. The views are spectacular, gorgeous grounds, the cottage is clean and cozy, and it's location perfect and so quiet! Never tired of watching the ferry.

Diane, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and very personable. We appreciated the list of things in town....just a short walk away.

Definitely looking forward to booking again! Thanks for sharing your amazing property, Diane!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! It does indeed make a great girls get away. I always figure almost anything that works for a couple can work for a couple of gilfriends: wine bar, beach walks, shopping (maybe better for the girls get away!). We've even had working mini-retreats here. We look forward to your visiting Pleasant Beach Cottages again. Warmly, Diane

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were the first family to stay in this endearing home when it came on the rental market. The view of Puget Sound was phenomenal. While there we spotted a bald eagle, a seal, water fowl and dozens of small birds. The home is well equipped, allowing us to prepare most of our meals on-site to be enjoyed overlooking the waterfront. It was peaceful and quiet, with outstanding beds for a good night's sleep. It was conveniently located, a very short walk from an outstanding bakery and other little eateries. The location near Ft. Ward Park also gave us a great place to take morning walks. We would be happy to return for a visit. Next time we'll rent a kayak for paddling around the quiet cove.

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.
