Birdwatching: For those of you who are birdwatchers, you will be thrilled with what you might “spot” during your visit. The autumn, winter, and spring months bring extraordinary, migratory visitors to both the salt water estuary, and deep waters of Agate Pass. Amongst the confirmed spots: Black Oystercatcher, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Harlequin Duck, Long Tailed Duck, Surf Scoter, Common and Barrow’s Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Red Breasted Merganser, Double Crested Cormorant, Pigeon Guillemot, American Wigeon, Common Murre, Horned Grebe, Western Grebe, Surfbird, Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Black Turnstone, Sanderling, Western Sandpiper. During the summer months, the resident Great Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, and Mallard Ducks will entertain you down by the water. Just take a short walk to nearby Fay Bainbridge State Park, and listen to and look at the trees. Early morning and just before sunset are the best times for woodland birding.
Beachcombing: Test your beachcombing skills to find sand, seashells, stones and driftwood, along with gems of green, blue, red and orange sea glass. For the discerning comber, look for the agates, mostly orange, with the sun to their back, on the lowest of tides, right at the line between the large rocks, and the sand...
Misc. fun: Have you ever tried beach crocquet?....
My property was purchased by my late parents in the 70's, originally a small cabin which was totally rebuilt in 1992 to become a year-round home for my mother, June. I have many fabulous memories of spending glorious summers here as a child and still to this day it is a place that warms my heart and soothes the soul.
The Lake Isle of Innisfree
William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine beans rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow….
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; I hear it in my deep heart’s core.
June’s Place reminds me of Yeats’ poem, and staying here cures most ills and heartaches - I find there is no “cure” for leaving, except perhaps to return again and again. Thanks Leslie for making it all possible.
I was looking for a homebase to share for a weekend of Pacific Northwest beauty and this gem certainly didn't disappoint. The weather for our weekend stay ran the gamut from sunny to drenching rain but June's Place was spectacular regardless. The double waterfront views surrounded us with a plethora of bird life to observe (Herons were hunting below the back porch when we arrived, and the biggest Bald Eagle I have ever seen was preening itself on the beach out front not too much later). To be surrounded by so much natural beauty and still have the house be the centerpiece is impressive, but that's how we felt during our stay. The house is incredibly clean, well stocked, and ready for your extreme relaxation or cooking a gourmet meal without ever saying " I wish I had remembered to bring_____". I'm pretty sure that I've never cooked in a vacation home before where I didn't have to cut any corners, but this place was overwhelmingly well stocked and it didn't take long to learn the layout and find everything I needed ( and much, much more).
I can't recommend this property enough. Tranquil,romantic,warm, with views everywhere, sign me up for a return trip soon!
Had a great time at June's Place. The house had a great location, out on a spit of land. We saw six otters playing behind the house, the Olympics to the west, the Cascades to the east, and Mt. Rainer to the southeast. The house is well cared for, perfect for 4 people, and just so cozy. We had a nice fire in the fireplace, found the kitchen most helpful, and loved the deck. Took a walk down to Fay Bainbridge Park. We certainly would rent June's place again.
Everything we needed was provided. Neighbors and views are great. My daughter and I enjoyed site seeing as well as just hanging out. A good place to relax and unwind.
Saw dolphin, lots of shore birds, an otter or two and beautiful skies and sunsets.
My friend and I had the most enjoyable stay at June's Place. It's right on the tip so you've got water on both sides! The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and water views. The kitchen is well-stocked with anything you'd need to cook. We had so much fun lounging out on the deck and taking walks along the beach. And we loved the neighbor's gray cat who visited us daily for petting and purrs. The owner is prompt with her communication and makes booking easy. I can't wait to return!
If you stay at June's place be prepared to fall in love with Bainbridge Island. This house lets you experience a salt water lagoon off the back deck and Puget Sound at the base of the front yard. The house was neat and clean when we arrived everything in working order. The bed rooms were comfortable and whole house had a cozy yet open feel with ample views of the sound. For two winter weary midwesterners the surrounding beauty was a delight. Leslie was a delight to work with in the booking of this incredible property. I would recommend and have recommended this place to friends. Thank you again Leslie for making this an amazing week on Bainbridge Island.
My nephew married a young lady from Bainbridge Island. We were there for the festivities and stayed for a week to enjoy the area. June's Place was a highlight of our trip...such a unique and beautiful setting. Leslie, the owner, has thought of everything and then some! We were four adults, but we still made s'mores over campfires on our private beach. I loved sitting on the lagoon-side deck for reading and, during low tide, watching the sea gulls pick up clams and drop them on the roof next door to crack them open. We hiked and biked and won $450 at the casino! Our favorite spot for walking was the Bloedel Reserve. I would love to visit Bainbridge Island again and would definitely book June's Place for my stay.
