Bloedel Reserve is now open to the public. Fantastic gardens. An Island treasure. BI Museum (BIMA) is also open, and free, every day of the week. It is located on the corner of Winslow and 305, which is the first intersection you hit when driving off the boat. Next to the BIMA is KidiMu – a great interactive museum for kids, but not free.
If you've never been to Bay Hay and Feed, it's a very cool store. It is located in Rolling Bay. It's t-shirt logo is legendary and is spotted in countries around the world. A beautiful nursery, some fun kid toys, an electric pony, clothing, usually some newly hatched chicks. It's an upscale farmer's store. Next door to it is a hole in the wall bakery that serves great lattes and good sandwiches. Sometimes soup. Tiny, so you sit outside in the Bay Hay and Feed nursery to eat. Kids can run around. http://bayhayandfeed.com/
If you are still into plants after the Bloedel, then a trip to Bainbridge Gardens is a must. A superior nursery and New Rose Cafe on site serves some great sandwiches. Again, outside, so weather a consideration. http://www.bainbridgegardens.com/NewRoseCafe.html
If you want to try something indoors, down in the town of Winslow, we have several adult and kid-friendly, tasty places.
1. Streamliner Diner – casual, sit down and order. http://streamlinerdiner.com/
2. Fork and Spoon - order at the counter, pick up and sit in courtyard. Directly across from nationally acclaimed Mora's Ice Cream. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/1/1589364/restaurant/Seattle/Fork-Spoon-Bainbridge-Island
3. Café Nola – most formal of all of these - http://www.cafenola.com/
4. Blackbird Bakery (good lunch food, too). If anyone likes knitting or just to browse in a yarn and tea shop, the Blackbird is right next door to the famous Church Mouse. I don't knit, but I love going in there. http://blackbirdbakery.com/
5. Bainbridge Bakers (good lunch food, too) http://www.bainbridgebakers.com/page/1m5qj/About_Us.html
If you want to be on the waterfront/marina/lots of boats, go to the Public House, aka The Pub (http://harbourpub.com/). They have good fish and chips, hamburger, salad, soup. It's a pub, but fairly good food.
Last on my list for breakfast or lunch is Roosters. Fairly non-descript. Right off the main drag on your way to the marina area. It's good food, good coffee. Internet café, but also great meeting place and if kids get squirmy, they can move around.
Dinner doesn't get better than Hitchcocks or Marche. Both have award winning chefs and both are on the main street - just 5 blocks or so from the Lego House.
Fay Bainbridge State Park, located on the northeast end of the island, is a great beach combing area. Low tides reveal a rich sea life.
If you want to catch a sunset, go over to Lynwood Center. You can also grab a good bite to eat at the Treehouse or take in a live concert. A favorite of the locals, http://treehousebainbridge.com/
There is so much more. Contact us for ideas. We've lived on the island for almost 30 years and we are still discovering its many charms.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We have lived on this island for 27 years. Five years ago we sold our family home out on the northeast end and moved into the town of Winslow. What a wonderful change. As much as we loved beach combing at Fay Bainbridge Park, we love living in town even more with the community theater, movies, restaurants and shopping. This island has it all - Grand Forest walks, tide pooling, strolling, biking, kayaking, Blodel Reserve, free museum with wonderful collections, island-owned library and the best 4th of July parade and fireworks anywhere (and our house has a front row seat). After our four children moved out and on with their lives, we turned our attention to figuring out our next steps.
Why the Owner Chose Bainbridge Island, WA, USA:
We bought this property 20 years ago imaging that we might build a house one day. After selling our family home, we knew we wanted to stay on the island, but we wanted to spend a couple of years renting before deciding our next steps. Eventually, we chose to go back into home ownership. Now that the house is complete, just as we did with family and friends in our former home, we decided to open it up to guests. Only this time, instead of welcoming people we know, we thought we'd meet people like us who use VRBO. It's a new venture for us to rent out our home, but so far it's been a wonderful experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When we began construction on the house, we had no idea we'd have spectacular views of Mt. Rainier, the ferries and Puget Sound from every floor. Our attention was more focused on trying to build green. We used insulated concrete forms (ICF), which fit together much like legos. No surprise that people call it the 'lego house'. But we were surprised when our talented friend, Carlyle Livingston II, made a model of it out of legos (see photo). Other talented friends, Diane Boncolini and Greg Mesmer of Mesolini Glass Studio, created a spectacular leaded glass door that brings delight to us on a daily basis. We love the gardens and watch with anticipation as the new plants begin to take root.
