The perfect mix of natural beauty and access to modern wonders, this Bainbridge Island cottage is begging for a family or small group to visit and enjoy the sights and sounds of Bainbridge and Seattle alike.

The Artist's Retreat, situated on an acre of land dotted by old-growth trees and lovely gardens, can house up to four guests. It's conveniently located at the south end of Bainbridge Island, between Fort Ward and Bainbridge town, offering you a variety of choices for how to spend your day. Take in a small-town atmosphere on the island, duck over to Seattle for a day with your friends on a ferry, or take the kids boating, biking, or scuba diving at Fort Ward Park.

The living room offers a nice, cozy couch, perfect for relaxing with a good book - either your own or one from the home's private collection. The sofa is positioned by the patio doors, perfect for enjoying a nice summer breeze and admiring the trees outside. Winter visitors needn't worry, as a wood stove and fully stocked wood shed will keep everyone nice and toasty. The cabin even offers WiFi, so guests can stay connected technologically while enjoying the wooded surroundings.

A sturdy dining table tucked into the corner seats up to four guests at once, but more can enjoy something tasty at the elevated table in the center of the room that serves as a kitchen island. Missing only a dishwasher, the kitchen is well equipped, with all the small appliances you'll need to make something tasty, including a toaster, coffeemaker, and grinder.

The two bedrooms of the Artist's Retreat are both upstairs, one with a queen, the other with a king. The master bedroom also boasts an elegant chandelier and one of the two full baths, complete with an outdoor clawfoot tub and shower nozzle for versatility. The second bedroom also has its own bath with a standalone shower, and an additional half-bath includes a washer and dryer to keep everyone's clothes nice and clean.

The lovely gardens, cheerful birdsong, and gorgeous forested landscape allow for stunning views both inside and out - whether you're walking around with the kids or simply enjoying the occasional look up from whatever project you're working on indoors. The pea gravel patio also includes a gas grill and outdoor dining table that seats four for summer cookouts, perfect for coming back to after a day of exploring Bainbridge town's novelty shops or the islands many beaches.

Just a few miles away is the ferry terminal, which gives access to Seattle. From simply walking the city and searching for nooks and crannies to staples like the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, there's no shortage of activities awaiting you in the Emerald City.

The Artist's Retreat is a true gem, offering an amazing home with natural seclusion and easy access to urban exploration. Artists, small groups, and families alike will all find something to love in this incredible home.

About Vacasa, WA - Olympic Peninsula Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers. <br> <br> Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team. <br> <br> Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

                              Such a sweet and magical place!!! I wish it was mine!

                              Cristin S.

                              We just left this special getaway house and we alresdy miss it!! All of our needs were met! Comfortable beds, Warm, beautiful surroundings, lovely artwork, peaceful neighborhood with great walks. The bathtub was amazing with heated floors:) but my favorite was just staring out the windows at all the beauty, it is Spring so the blooms were just coming out. Great mediation spaces...book reading..art. This is the place to come and truly relax and unplug. We will be back! Vacasa was great to work with booking and checking in. Truly a unique gem!

                              Great Energy

                              Greg G.

                              Bainbridge is such an amazing treat. And this house helped!!!


                              Gregory G.Dallas, TX

                              This house is amazing. Open layout with awesome beds

                              Beautiful spacious cottage in quiet surroundings

                              Ruby M.

                              Just a ferry ride from downtown Seattle. We enjoyed our stay on the island.

                              Great property to disconnect and relax

                              Evan S.

                              I went to the property to read and work on a personal project. The house was great , well stocked with cooking equipment, and clean. Not having a TV or any other distractions was a huge bonus. The house itself is closer to the two neighbors than the pictures make it out to be but still very private and cozy. Also the stove is great, I'd recommended buying 1 to 1.5 bundles of wood per night from the Town and Country market before arriving. Finally be sure to bring an eye mask and earplugs, the bedrooms get quite bright in the morning and if it's foggy the ships will toot their foghorns at night.

                              quick stay and want to come back!

                              Melinda F.

                              This is a very comfortable house and I regret not having enough time to enjoy the house and the surrounding property more. The kitchen is very well equipped, which is a huge plus. I can't wait to come back with my family!<br />

                              <br />

                              The only thing I would change is that next time I'll rent a car. Not the easiest place to get around without a car and the house is located near the top of a very steep hill!
