About the Property
2 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Sound, Mt. Rainier, & city views
The cottage is located on Puget Sound with stunning southern views of the water, Mt. Rainier, and Washington State Ferries. The Seattle skyline and lights are viewable from the bulkhead and fire pit. It is a great place for a stress-relieving break or more active pursuits.
One of the things we enjoy most about our cozy cottage is watching local wildlife. Bald Eagles are easily seen from the home and deck. Seals, sea lions, cranes and other critters pass by daily. Orcas played off our beach in June 2013 and 2015. What a treat!
At low tide, throw on your water shoes and head to the beach to visit tidal pools brimming with colorful starfish and sea anemones. It’s great for anyone with a curious mind and is young at heart.
The Cottage is situated along a popular maritime route with Mt. Rainier as a backdrop. The water is studded with ferries, naval ships (including aircraft carriers and submarines), ocean-going ships, sail boats, yachts, kayaks and even paddleboards. If you like, you can use our 2 kayaks to explore yourself!
Another option is to use our five (5) hybrid/mountain bikes to ride along the largely flat South Beach Drive into Ft Ward Park and then on to Lynwood Center (Pleasant Beach). Lynwood Center has an art house theatre, bakery, restaurants, cafes, boutiques, ice cream, small grocery and a Sunday farmers' market.
Visit Winslow, the Island's primary shopping district which is 6 miles from the Cottage. You'll find everything you may need including groceries, retail therapy, movies and many excellent restaurants and pubs.
If you want to play golf there are several in the vicinity.
If gambling is your fun, a casino located just off the north end of the Island. For cycling enthusiasts, Bainbridge Island is a well known bike riding destination.
The Island Also offers numerous trails and walks including one just up Toe Jam Hill Road and others at the foot of Blakely Harbor, as well as numerous others throughout the Island.
The Island is home to several wineries and a distillery if you are interested in tasting some of our local products.
Or, if you are just looking to get a break from it all, you most certainly can find relaxation and a retreat in our cottage all by itself. No need to leave.
All rooms have water views. The cottage features a beautiful and extremely well-equipped Kitchen.
The very comfortable Living and Dining rooms provide captivating views of the comings and goings on the water and the lights from West Seattle. In the evening, the illuminated ferries will remind you of Christmas tree ornaments.
The 2 Bedrooms have queen beds, flat screen TVs, and hummingbird feeders that attract birds from dawn until sunset – year round.
Both Bathrooms have skylights. The Master Bath has a low curb, walk-in shower with a small seat. The Main Bath has a claw foot tub where you can relax, watch the sky and trees above.
The deck enjoys sun during the morning and early afternoon and then shade in the afternoons. Relax on the outdoor furniture, have a sun-filled breakfast or lunch and watch the eagles soar past.
Continue down the steps towards the water for areas where you can sit and enjoy views of Seattle skyline, relax in a two person hammock, enjoy the fire pit, paddle kayaks, or hop down to the beach to explore tide pools and collect shells and cool rocks at low tide.

About the owner: We split our time between Seattle and Bainbridge Island truncated by attacks of wanderlust. We enjoy sharing what we know and love about Bainbridge and Seattle.
Why the Owner Chose Bainbridge Island, WA, USA:
The View!!! From the moment we walk through the front door, we were stunned by the views of the Mountain and the Sound. Our original plans were to re-build and modernize the cottage, but instead, we improved it and still love it. We lived here for two years and commuted to work from the Island. We have found that the cottage is a fantastic place to 'chill' or 'get jazzed'. We love the feeling of being away from it all, but its only a short distance into Island centers - Winslow or Lynnwood where dining, pubs, entertainment and shopping options are numerous. Additionally, Seattle is just a short ferry ride away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This place puts the 'C' in Cozy, the 'FUN' in Functional, and provides a bead on maritime and wild life comings and goings. Its a great place to enjoy the Pacific Northwest at its best. Whether from the comfort of the cottage, the expansive deck or down by the water, this is the place for you. The kitchen is well-equipped, with just about every kitchen tool or appliance. Additionally, the Hummingbird feeder at the kitchen sink provides close encounters with the birds year round. Too cool! The living room is nicely decorated, and comfy. It's large windows on two sides provide a fantastic view of the water and wildlife moving past. The expansive wrap around deck provides a bird's eye view of the water, the mountain, wildlife and maritime traffic.
