About Peter

My family's Northwest roots go back over 100 years, and my happiest memories from every childhood summer on Agate Point, and continued tranquil life on Bainbridge Island. Now spending a lot of time in California, I wanted my young Daughter to experience the joys, outdoor activities, and serenity that Bainbridge so openly offers.

Peter purchased this house in 2013

Why Peter chose Bainbridge Island

There is simply nothing like Bainbridge Island...a mere 30 minute Ferry ride from dynamic Downtown Seattle, yet a lifetime away....unspoiled forests, rolling lawns, farms, walks, beaches, and cozy fires - in winter and summer. Plus Main Street Winslow and Eagle Harbor, offer art, quaint shops, wonderful chef-owned dining, and the best Waterfront Pub and Coffee house anywhere!

What makes this house unique

Very Private, warm, cozy and inviting for 2 or 10! With many in-home 'getaway' spaces for quiet reading and rest, in addition to 5 Private Bedrooms, 3 fireplaces, and a casually elegant kitchen.dining area that seats 10. All this, and surrounded by over 240 acres of the Grand Forest trails - walking, biking, or hiking, all with a very central Island location.

Golf Course Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were in the middle of a move, selling our home in Oregon, and starting a new job in Seattle, so of course it was a stressful time. We arrived exhausted, and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. The paths around the golf course and into the forest are lovely, as is the lake. The kitchen is well stocked, and home is spacious and family friendly. I wholeheartedly agree with other reviewers that Peter is an excellent and responsive host. After we had scheduled our time here and paid in full, we had a last minute change in plans, and he could have just kept our money -- but instead he offered a full refund, and we ended up rescheduling. His integrity and willingness to be flexible are deeply appreciated!

Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a wonderful location. We loved celebrating Thanksgiving with our family there. The house was perfect with lots of beds and a great common space and outdoor seating area. It is a perfect homebase for trips to Seattle, or there is plenty to do on the island and Olympic Peninsula. Thanks to Peter for sharing your wonderful home!

The perfect house for a family of 10!! It was very comfortable and we felt very much at home!! Peter was incredibly easy and a delight to work with! He had given us a list of wonderful things to do while staying on the Island and we did just about everything!! This house was a great choice! We all LOVED our stay!

Very nice, well equpped, beautiful yard.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we thought this house was excellent for a family reunion - well equipped, gorgeous yard, centrally located - we will stay again. The kitchen was a delight. The new double BBQ was a real treat. We loved the style of the house - very comfortable. The only area lacking was the mattresses could be updated. Everything else really was perfect.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thanks for the review, but I feel horrible that you didn't like the mattresses. They are all new within the past 3-4 years, and I purposely bought a selection of firmness since it seems that we all have different firmness preferences. Similarly with the bed pillows, some are soft down, some foam, and some are synthetic down so that everyone can have a choice. Sorry again, and I hope that I can make it up to you. Thanks, Peter

Our trip to Seattle was fantastic! We stayed in Bainbridge in a lovely home. All of our needs were met, and it truly felt like home. It was so peaceful there, yet so close to the action. Just a half hour ferry ride to Seattle. We were also in a great location to visit Mt. Rainier and Olympic National Forest. Our host was wonderful! I felt like I was dealing with a friend!

  • 5 of 5

This home was cozy and comfortable. It has plenty of dining areas and a beautiful back patio for our big family reunion. It is nestled next to a lovely golf course with a peaceful view. There are 5 bedrooms, large dining areas for a big family, and a fully stocked kitchen. We loved our stay and know that all visitors will enjoy it, too!
