About the Property

Studio apartment with hot tub

Little Rabbit Studio is on lovely Bainbridge Island. Bainbridge Island is the closest Puget Sound Island to Seattle. A ferry connects the Island to downtown Seattle. While we are in the village of Winslow, we offer the unique opportunity to both visit the exciting city of Seattle, and explore our relaxing and beautiful Island. The ferry terminal is at the end of our street, a ten minute walk away.

Downtown Seattle has many wonderful attractions: fabulous museums, galleries, world class restaurants, sports complexes, Pike Place Market, small boutiques, department stores, music venues, performance arts, sculpture park, restaurants, pubs, bars, nightlife, boat excursions. Activities abound for the active visitor and for someone more interested in exploring cultural opportunities.

Within the village of Winslow on Bainbridge Island, Little Rabbit Studio apartment looks out over a lovely garden of unusual plants and flowers. You are welcome to explore the gardens. A 100 year old apple tree outside your door attracts wildlife including many kinds of birds and deer. A patio has a path to an outdoor fire pit for evenings by the fire. A second private patio has a hot tub for your exclusive use.

The studio itself is equipped with a kitchenette for snacks and smaller meals which includes: convection oven, microwave, grill, single burner cooktop, and small undercounter refrigerator. Wifi is available. Heating and air conditioning are provided.

Although it's just 35 minutes by ferry from Seattle, Bainbridge Island is a totally different world. Travelers who enjoy the outdoors can hike, bike or walk in the Bloedel Reserve, Fort Ward State Park, or many other trails. The island feels rural, and local agriculture is a source of pride for residents with a seasonal weekly farmer's market. Bainbridge Island is also known for its strong visual and performing arts culture, and there is excellent shopping in Winslow.

We are located within the village of Winslow, which has art galleries, a fabulous art museum with primarily Northwest art, a history museum, and shops for clothing, housewares, and design. A waterfront trail winds around the village with views out to the harbor and bay. Kayak and bicycle rentals are right here in town!

The Island has 8 wineries, including one, Rolling Bay Winery, which was on the list of the 20 best wineries out of 600 in the state. Bainbridge Organic Distillery Vodka was named the number one vodka out of 1000 competitors from 25 countries. Excellent restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses and wine bars provide culinary adventures.

Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center has two full size pools with numerous swim lanes, a lazy river, sauna, and steam room.

Bainbridge Island has 38 miles of hiking trails.

Restaurants on the Island are varied: from ethnic (Thai, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Italian), to American (pubs, diners), to seafood, to many bakeries, and to gourmet. Dining is on the waterfront, in town, and other locations on the Island. Mora Ice Cream, in the village of Winslow, was named by Food and Wine Magazine as the best in the country.

While we are in the village of Winslow, and enjoy the proximity to services and shops, our dead-end street has a rural feeling, with soaring trees and lots of deer and wildlife.

Outside of Winslow, the rest of the island has many attractions: hiking trails, beaches, nature reserves, for example. There is also an interesting and captivating monument to the Japanese Internment during World War II. The first Japanese to be taken away from their homes and put in Internment camps were from Bainbridge Island.

Off the island, in addition to Seattle, the Olympic Peninsula is just over a bridge connecting Bainbridge Island to the Western mainland. Right off the bridge is a casino. A free bus to the casino is at the ferry dock at the bottom of our street.

About 10 minutes further is the town of Poulsbo, a town settled by Scandinavians that still has Scandinavian bakeries and shops. Further still is the town of Port Gamble, a scenic former lumber town with many historic buildings.

Further on, one can reach Olympic National Park, with its Olympic mountain peaks, waterfalls, trails, wildlife, and visitor center. Hurricane Ridge is a must-see drive up the mountains to one of the most beautiful places in the world. Hundreds of miles of hiking trails, a visitor center, skiing, and abundant wildlife are all right there. The city of Port Townsend is a historic town of 150 year old homes high on a bluff overlooking the sea. It's historic waterfront is well known for its shops and restaurants. Nearby the natural area of Dungeness Spit has an 8 mile trail along a narrow sand spit (water on both sides) to a lighthouse. Hikers are often accompanied by sea lions who swim along the spit. The walk back includes incredible views of the Olympic Mountains! Also near Port Townsend and Hurricane Ridge is the ferry to Victoria, British Columbia, for either a day or overnight trip. Many people go just for High Tea and a walk along the wharf. Victoria is also known for its museum which is worth a visit.

The Olympic Rain Forests are accessible on the Peninsula, as are glacier lakes with deep blue water surrounded by mountains. The Olympics are also the place to go for wild beaches with no commercial development. Surfers congregate in Westport while other areas are known for beach walks and quiet contemplation.

We are able to provide hiking information for both the Island and the Olympic Park, rain forest and mountains. We are able to give route suggestions, and recommendations for stops along the way.

Please note that our studio is best for people who enjoy the outdoors and quiet relaxation. There is no television. Wifi is available.

Car: Not Necessary

Little Rabbit Studio is easy walking distance to town and the ferry, so in that respect a car is not necessary. Many guests, however, wish to explore the island, do some hiking and even explore further onto the Olympic Peninsula. It is possible to enjoy the Island outside of town without a car if you are willing to take buses. Otherwise, a car will be advisable. Car rental is available on the island but it is highly recommended that you book in advance.


Owner info

About the owner: Originally from Missouri, I am a retired school social worker and counselor who lived in Seattle for the past 30 years before moving to the Island. My spouse is a dental hygienist. We have travelled extensively and our preferred accommodations are always vacation rentals where we can experience life as a local would. If possible, we like to avoid using cars and experience as much as we can on foot, train or ferry. We wanted our own vacation rental to be comfortable and private, yet with easy access to the things we love about the island.

Why the Owner Chose Bainbridge Island, WA, USA:
We traveled to Bainbridge Island often while we lived in Seattle. It is an ideal location! We have the uniqueness of island living, yet are close enough to the wonderful city of Seattle to go over for dinner, a show or one of the fabulous museums. We find, though, that there is plenty to do right on the Island and in the surrounding areas.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We offer quiet, relaxation, romance and a combination urban and island experience!
