When I first visited Bainbridge Island many years ago, I fell in love with its beauty and tranquility. I vowed then that I would retire here. When this quaint little 1920's cottage on Beck Rd. became available in 2004, I grabbed it. It's a great place to stay while visiting relatives in the area, where you can enjoy your privacy and all the amenities of this artistic community. The Cottage is located just a couple of blocks from the best beach in Bainbridge, Lytle Beach. There you can find great sand, places to have a Bon Fire, boats left on the beach for the community to use and just plain walking. The Cottage is also a 10 minute walk from the newly refurbished Lynwood Center. With new Shops, Restaurants, Movie Theater, Grocery Stores and a magnificent Bakery, you have everything you need. The Cottage is approximately 4 miles from the Seattle Ferry. A car is suggested. I hope you enjoy The Cottage as much as I do! Owner, Teri Sinclair

I bought this 1920's cottage as a retirement home. I hope to retire and move to Bainbridge within 5 years.
The kayaking, within walking distance at nearby Lytle Beach is the best on the island. The fresh air in Bainbridge surpasses no other place in ther world. Seattle and Bainbridge Island in the summer can be the most beautiful cities. I love the rainy days during the winter when I can curl up next to the fire with a good book. I know you will also feel the same as I.
My daughter and I had a delightful time staying at this cottage. After flying across the country and dealing with the holiday crowds, it was nothing short of heavenly to arrive at the cottage and unlock the door to the totally charming and soothing colors, lovely and comfy furniture, and pleasing layout of the cottage. Getting up in the morning and heading down to the little shopping area to visit the wonderful bakery for fresh baked muffins, we could hear seals out on the water, something we sure never hear here in the other Washington! We had a wonderful time and hated to leave. The neighbors couldn't be nicer, and there are marvelous walks in any direction. We will definitely be back, and would have happily stayed forever! The owner and her daughter were a pleasure to deal with, and everything was just as promised.
We were looking for a quiet place to unplug for a few days with our 10 year old, and this cottage was ideal! It's absolutely charming, beautifully decorated, with high-end, fully stocked kitchen equipment - even a French press! Easy access to "downtown" Bainbridge, and we walked down to the beach in the morning to watch the Bremerton ferry cruise by. We spent 3 days reading on the porch, bonfires in the evening, exploring the island and sea kayaking during the day. We often found our daughter curled up in the chair in her bedroom reading the new books she bought at the bookstore on Winslow, and she didn't even think about turning on the tv the whole time! She's already plotting a return trip.
What a delightfully inviting cottage with amenities provided for all our needs even for entertaining! The cozy ambiance was comfortable and quiet and the front porch, back deck, and outdoor fire pit offered evening options.
What a fabulous little hideaway. The decor is to die, right down to the bathroom towels. Great location, a short walk to the beach with blackberries along the way (look up). Close to everything but feels a million miles away, and oh so private. A covered deck for inclement weather, a sunny deck for nice weather, and a gas fireplace to make the inside cozy as heck. The second bedroom now has two twin beds (different than what is shown in the photos). Very quiet, I can't believe how late we slept every morning in this super comfy bed, and the sheets are very high quality as are the kitchen implements (pans, knives). My computer-obsessed husband says to be sure and mention the 10 mB wifi. Kudos to the owner for her taste and style!
This cottage was the perfect place for our family of four to stay. It was clean and comfortable. The bedding and towels were high quality as were the cooking/kitchen supplies. Having the ability to do laundry was wonderful. We enjoyed the privacy of having our own yard with a nice patio for morning coffee time and evening happy hour. Bainbridge was delightful and we wished we could have stayed longer....next time we will! My only advice is to bring a fan or two if you are staying in the summertime as it does get warm in the late afternoon but other than that, we highly recommend staying here.
My husband, our twin 8-yr-olds and I spent a week at the cottage. The property is even better than the pictures - tastefully decorated, great backyard with a fire pit for s'mores, and plenty of room for relaxing.
We loved the location - just a few blocks from Lytle beach and about a 10-minute walk to Lynnwood Center (be sure to hit the French bakery).
The owner and manager were extremely easy to work with and helpful. I recommend this property without hesitation and plan to return next summer!
