Property description

Heron creek cottage is located between historic port madison and fay bainbridge waterfront park on the northern end of bainbridge island. Set on a hill nestled on the edge of a douglas fir forest, heron creek cottage views a glimpse of port madison bay and a pastoral landscape, home to friendly goats and chickens.
The sunny woodsy cottage is an ideal getaway for two people, but will sleep four (hide-a-bed couch in the living room). Heron creek has one bedroom with a very comfortable queen size bed, a separate bathroom (shower), full laundry facilities, a complete kitchen, and an inviting living room with cable tv, dvd, and wifi. An outside deck offers a patio table with umbrella that will seat six, and a bbq area. Convenient parking is next to the cottage. Guests are invited to tour the surrounding gardens that, for ten years, have been on local and national garden tours. Our location is an easy walking or bicycling distance to fay bainbridge park or frog rock, an island icon (each less than a mile). The seattle yacht club fo’c’s’le is a mile and a quarter jaunt for sailing enthusiasts. Three miles down the road is rolling bay community where guests may find a post office, bakery with fresh coffee, and “bay hay and feed”, a local feed, plant nursery, gift store, and country fashions. For convenience, guests may enjoy “via rosa”, excellent and authentic take out italian cuisine. A local jiffy mart is also available. Fresh eggs and seasonal produce from our vegetable garden can be picked and added to your meals. So come, relax and enjoy heron creek cottage. We look forward to meeting you.
