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 Puget Sound North

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.

Excellent home and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The home on Bainbridge island is within 5-10 minutes of all important amenities including the historic downtown, ferry, and beaches. Our young boys loved being able to golf right out the back door. The Grand Forest is a quick easy 5 minute walk up the road with endless trails for exploring. The home itself was very spacious for our family of four. The neighborhood is very quiet and the back deck was a welcome place to relax in the evening.

Beautiful Home on Bainbridge Island

  • 5 of 5

We rented this 5 bedroom home on Bainbridge Island to celebrate and early Christmas with our adult children and their spouses. We travel together often, and this home met the requirements of larger beds, at least 2 bathrooms, big kitchen/dining area and lots of room to spread out and find personal space. The location of the home was ideal for us- near Seattle via ferry, but away from traffic and noise that comes with a stay in a large city. Bainbridge Island is charming and quiet with many terrific places to dine and shop. A car is needed to stay in this home as it is not within walking distance to the grocery or other shops or restaurants.

The home itself is a two story, 5 bedroom ranch style home with a large upstairs King master suite, Queen bedroom with fireplace, and full bathroom. Downstairs, the bedrooms are two twins, a bunk bed with twin upper and full lower, and a sitting/bed room with a sleigh bed and fireplace. (It also housed the washer and dryer behind closet doors). The beds were comfortable and the bath towels were plentiful. Travel sized shampoos, conditioner, lotions are available for anyone who forgot something. The living room was nicely appointed and spacious enough for our family to gather by the fireplace. We enjoyed the large kitchen, equipped with good quality pots and pans, appliances, plenty of dishes, and even condiments and little extras in the cupboards and fridge. We appreciated having the makings for coffee and tea on our first morning without having to go to the store! The dining table easily holds 8 and there is a glass top round dinette nearby for additional dining space or cards/games. The home is heated with central heating, which was easy to adjust. There is a golf cart for guests to use, although we did not take advantage of that during our stay. Peter had a bottle of wine waiting for us, and had decorated the house for the holidays with twinkle lights and some ornaments here and there. He was available to us via email or phone during the whole rental process.

The house is located on a golf course, with the path right behind the back yard. This let us walk to the Grand Forest (about 1/4 mile) and have a good hike, which was lovely, even in the 30 degree temps. On the trail we met people with dogs, horses, and got to enjoy huge trees and fresh air.

We really enjoyed our stay in this home and will plan to rent it again when our family meets together in the Seattle area!

Amazing, comfortable and beautiful home for family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to the Jacobsons!!

We had relatives from all over gathering on Bainbridge Isalnd for a wedding. The Meadowlark property was perfect to call home while we were there. We felt instantly at home and were provided everything we needed. I wish we had more time to enjoy this beautiful setting and it will definitely be our first choice for our return.
