Larry Fischer purchased this studio in 2003

Prior to moving to Bainbridge Island from Billings Montana, my wife and I had vacationed here for several years. We were always struck with the beauty of the area so when we had a chance to move here we didn't hesitate. We weren't disappointed. We have lived here now since 2003 and love every minute of it. It took a long time to find this property since waterfront property is hard to find and with 1 acre and a dock it was even harder.

Every morning Sandy and I spend time looking out our picture window at Fletcher Bay while having coffee and are amazed that we never get tired of watching the water and wildlife. The kinetic nature of water along with the variety of wildlife that use it is truly remarkable. It is a rare place to live and we are truly thankful of our good fortune to live here.

Wildlife including Bald Eagle, many different migratory waterfowl, Blue Heron, Sea Otter, Seal, Osprey, Canadian Geese, a wide variety of song birds, Deer, Raccoon, Fox, and the rarely seen but reportedly on the island, single black bear.

Kayaking, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, sailing, birding, and gardening almost year round. There is always some kind of flower blooming here year round.

PERFECT GET AWAY...RELAXING, CLOSE TO THE CITY, EVERYTHING AROUND!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from 4 days in the Bainbridge/Seattle area...and for our first trip away with no kids...WOW! The waterfront studio surpassed our expectations...it is beautiful, and they have done a great job decorating it while keeping it very functional. Everything we needed was there...and we loved the opportunity to get out for a misty morning paddle, go for gorgeous trail runs in the nearby parks/beaches/forests. The property is beautiful and it was nice to sit out overlooking the water, surrounded by their gardens, and enjoy our morning coffee.

It ended up being a perfect escape for us as we were able to use the ferry to easily get to Seattle for some "city days" of exploring...and also stay on the island for some "relaxing days" of paddling, running, eating great food, shopping at the market, and exploring Bainbridge.

I would highly recommend this accommodation to any couple wanting a place to get away and refresh. The owners were very responsive to our needs, and with having our own private entry, still felt as though we were on our own the entire time. It was wonderful.

PERFECT GETAWAY FOR TWO!

  • 4 of 5
I considered several Bainbridge rentals, but kept coming back to Larry's property. We wanted to come in on a day where it was already booked, but Larry accommodated us with one night in the larger (5 person) Cottage before we transferred to the Studio for a week. The Cottage is very upscale; the Studio was perfect for our needs, and we never wished for a full kitchen, anyway, since we mostly ate out. The grounds are stupendous, and will especially impress those gardening-lovers in your group. Note that the Studio does not have AC, which was not an issue for us since the evenings cool off quickly by the water. Sandy and Larry were gracious hosts, always happy to engage in conversation and anticipating the needs of their guests.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. It was nice having your here. There might be several days during the year it might get a little warm and air conditioning would be nice but most of the time it is very pleasant and not necessary. Fans in the unit usually suffice.

Also because the unit is on the water, as you mentioned, it cools down quickly after the gorgeous sunsets.

YOU'LL LOVE THE STUDIO, EVEN IF YOUR NAME ISN'T MICHAEL!

You'll love The Studio, even if your name isn't Michael!
  • 5 of 5
Apparently, The Studio is very appealing to those of us named "Michael" (see reviews), and with good reason! It is a special place!

My and I arrived in the late afternoon and headed straight for the dock to check out the view. Stunning. What a beautiful and tranquil spot --just as we anticipated, and the silence has to be experienced to be believed. We knew immediately that we had made the right choice to stay here for our getaway.

Gracious hosts Larry and Sandy have left no stone unturned -- The Studio is tastefully appointed, very clean and quite comfortable -- everything is first rate, and the view from the unit is amazing as well. Throw in kayaks for cruising Fletcher Bay and a fire pit to enjoy in the evening after a paddle, and that's what Bainbridge Island is all about! Well, that, and the hiking, biking, sailing, golf, beach combing, parks, garden tours, wine tasting, shops and restaurants, too!

Whatever your name is, don't be concerned about reserving The Studio. It's truly a little slice of Heaven, and I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here as much as my wife and I did -- or my name isn't Michael!

THE BEST LOCATION ON BAINBRIDGE!

  • 5 of 5
Bainbridge Island is such a pleasant, relaxing getaway. Wooded and peaceful places to explore and waterfront to enjoy all over... it's an island! But with a lovely downtown with great restaurants as well as cultural activities on the Island.

We just took our second trip there in the last two years and loved it as much as the first time.

And here is a BIG part of why we love it.... the serene, beautiful area known as Fletcher Bay and the accommodations at this welcoming, beautiful property known as Fletcher Bay Landing.

We loved it here in 2010 and again a few weeks ago. We have stayed in both of the spaces (the Studio and the Cottage) and they are both absolutely perfect. The Cottage is a bit more spacious with full kitchen and as cute and well appointed as can be. The Studio is cozy and amply spacious as well and it also as great amenities such as a convenient kitchen area.
Both are nicely updated and feel great to be in. Romantic, comfortable, clean as can be.

Both are literally steps from the water access, a dock with kayaks and canoe... just get in and go for lovely little trip around the bay or out to more open water which is very close by at the mouth of the bay. We were on the water frequently because it's so convenient.

Our hosts Larry and Sandra are the greatest. Friendly but affording you all the space and privacy possible. The property feels like you are at home in your own place. Just perfect.

Can you tell I'm high on this place? We got around the island a lot and decided that Fletcher Bay is the gem location. I'm confident you will love it!

IDYLLIC SETTING, WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATIONS, FRIENDLY HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
What a treasure---we feel lucky to have found this wonderful getaway! I agree with the first two reviews in my admiration of this beautiful bay, cozy studio and friendly hosts. I would also add that the guest book contains many more compliments, with several people saying they wish they could have stayed longer.
The studio is actually quite spacious, with very nice furnishings, a nicely equipped kitchen and many amenities, including a desktop computer, free internet phone, gas fireplace and large HDTV. But who wants to watch TV at a place that has so much to offer outdoors? Steps from the french doors you can choose from the bayview patio with gas fireplace, dockside patio with sunny south exposure or grab a paddle to explore the calm, protected bay in the free-for-guests kayak or canoe.
Larry was very friendly and accommodating and went out of his way to make our stay special. The price is a value for the experience you will have. A part of me wants to keep this secret to ourselves, but it is only fair to spread the word and share what a wonderful place this is.

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to begin. Hands down, our stay at the cottage at Fletcher Bay was perfection from start to finish. The owner, Larry, is kind, accommodating, and even though his private residence is on site, he allows total and complete privacy. The cottage and the property are absolutely stunning. The private cove offers one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. I could go on and on, but I'll just say this ... staying at Fletcher Bay was perhaps the best getaway I've ever experienced and I will get back there as soon as I can.
