About Michelle Linquist

We spent 3 years looking for the Skyline House. The view of Seattle and Mt. Rainier stole our hearts during our dating years and we just never tire of the area. It's heaven on earth for nature lovers! We hope to someday retire on BI and spend every minute here! In the meantime, we enjoy sharing this wonderful peaceful home with fellow vacationers.

Michelle Linquist purchased this House in 2014

Why Michelle Linquist chose Bainbridge Island

Secluded enough to provide a peaceful and rejuvenating vacation yet with the conveniences of being only minutes from downtown BI and the Seattle ferry you won't be disappointed. The view is unforgettable!

What makes this House unique

Sitting on over an acre, the Skyline House has plenty of room for outdoor play and exercise for little ones or you can just enjoy each other's company or the company of friends lounging on the outdoor 2nd story porch while enjoying the view of the Seattle skyline, Puget Sound traffic, the Cascades and Mt. Rainier. If you're lucky, you'll even see the whales passing through!

                                                            Unbelievable home and views!

                                                            Elizabeth A.Louisville

                                                            We loved the views from this amazing home. The living room, backyard, porch, kitchen, and nook, all provided for fabulous family time, with the amazing view of the sound and Seattle to constantly look at. We didn't turn on the TV once, or go out to dinner - because the view was so spectacular, we couldn't leave it!

                                                            Michelle was incredibly attentive too. We had a slight issue with the refrigerator when we got to the house, and we had someone to look at it within an hour. She kept in touch with us via email throughout the weekend to help address any questions, she was so helpful and gracious!

                                                            The only thing that would have been better is having a queen sized bed in the lower level. That would be a nice addition, but the pullout was comfortable as well. Overall a great Easter weekend on Bainbridge!

                                                            Amazing house and stunning views

                                                            Rachel G.

                                                            We were left high and dry by another rental at the last minute for our New Years Eve get away and Michelle opended her home to us. The home is beautiful, with the most spectacular views. We loved cooking in the kitchen, eating in the formal dining room and taking full advantage of the views for the midnight fireworks! We are already planning our return.

                                                            Well-appointed, comfortable home with unbeatable views of Downtown Seattle.

                                                            We had a fantastic stay at the Skyline House! It was everything we could have hoped for in a vacation rental. An easy drive from the ferry, nice quiet area, and amazing views. The house itself had everything we needed. It was warm, cozy and inviting. Michelle was fantastic and very easy to work with. She truly cared about us and made sure she did everything to make our stay pleasant. I would only put one thing out for consideration. The house only has two "real" beds (the master king and bunk beds). The other two available beds in the house are sofa sleepers which were fine but true beds would have been preferred. Overall I would very highly recommend the Skyline House. We spent a very special Christmas there and it felt like home. Now we just need to figure out how we can get back for another vacation. If we can, we will book this house again in a heartbeat!

                                                            Beautiful home, awesome views, great vacation

                                                            We just stayed a week in this beautiful home, and it was perfect. The Sound and City views are amazing. We saw a bald eagle, a large pod of Orcas, and the USS Nimitz cruise by the 'backyard.' The home was very comfortable, the owners are very responsive, and we had easy access to explore Seattle, the Olympic Peninsula, and even did a day trip to Victoria BC. Highly recommended, will return!

                                                            Highly recommend. The view is spectacular!

                                                            We had such a lovely stay over the Thanksgiving week! I had a hard time peeling myself away from the many windows because the view of Downtown Seattle, the wildlife, Mt Rainier and the Sound are epic. At one point, we had three young boys staying in the house (ages 3-6) and there was plenty of space, inside and out, for them to run around and have a blast. If we are looking to stay in a rental on Bainbridge Island again, we will certainly try to stay here again!

                                                            The owner was very communicative before and during our stay. There were so many pleasant touches that really makes this location above and beyond.

                                                            The house was amazing. No detail was missed. From the view to the furniture. We really enjoyed the house. Michelle was amazing to work with we will definitely be back.

                                                            Enjoy the outdoor sport court with basketball goal, swing set in the backyard or just sit by the high bank water's edge under the cover of the peaceful belvedere. Guests can also enjoy seating on the back porch or porch swing that has breathtaking water and mountain views! And, for the griller in your family the view while grilling on the 5 burner grill (includes sear and side burner options for cooking) placed just outside the kitchen for convenience will never disappoint! Just minutes from the Bainbridge ferry and downtown Bainbridge, fine dinners, shopping, outings with little ones to the park or water are endless. Heart and Soul, a wonderful pottery shop that provides endless fun times of pottery painting or fusing glass with little ones, also provides a parent's night out opportunity on select Saturdays. Our favorite restaurants include Cafe Nola, Hitchcock's and Streamliner Cafe. Westside Pizza is great for a pizza night delivery!
