Come and enjoy our Waterfront Beach Cottage.
The Cottage is located on Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound. It has stunning southern views of the Sound, Mt. Rainier, and Washington State Ferries. The Seattle skyline and lights are viewable from the bulkhead and fire pit. It is a fabulous 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 from time to time. 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 young at heart.
The Cottage is situated along a popular and busy 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 4 kayaks to explore for yourself!
Another option is to use our four (4) hybrid/mountain bikes to ride along the largely flat South Beach Drive into Ft Ward Park and then on to Lynwood Center (Pleasant Beach). Enjoy the art house theatre, bakery, restaurants, cafes, boutiques, ice cream, small grocery and a Sunday farmers' market.
Or visit Winslow, where the Seattle ferry lands and also the Island's primary shopping district. Winslow is 6 miles from the Cottage. You'll find everything you need including groceries, retail therapy, parks, walking trails along Eagle Harbor, movies and many excellent restaurants and pubs/winery tasting rooms.
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 is blessed with trails and walks close to the Cottage, but also throughout the Island.
The Island is home to several award winning wineries and a distillery. The grapes come highly regarded Eastern Washington vineyards. The tasting rooms are eclectic, friendly, fun & scattered through Winslow and around the island.
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 ornaments.
The 2 Bedrooms have queen beds, flat screen TVs, and hummingbird feeders that attract birds from dawn until sunset – year round.
The "Middle Room" has a queen size sofa bed. Firm, comfortable, no back breaking bars to disrupt your slumber.
Both Bathrooms have skylights to gaze at the sky & tree boughs above. 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.
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 rocks at low tide.
