Bainbridge Island Studio Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Loft Studio Sleeps 4

Skiff Point Guest House and Retreat has two inviting private and spacious units; The Loft Suite (which has the best views on the property offering panoramic views of Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, The Cascade Mountains and Seattle!). The Carriage House is in its own dwelling. Go to listing #565191 if you would like information on the Carriage House and would like to book a reservation.

The Loft suite has a kitchenette, basically a fully equipped kitchen, lovely living area, dining and sleeping areas offer casual elegance and comfort. Warm light fills the spacious two-story high-ceilinged suites. Relaxing private balcony expands your amazing views. Watch the boats go by and the eagles soar. The view does not get any better than this!

The Loft Suite offers a romantic feel and has the best views on the property! It has its own private garden entrance and is on a second level. You enter in and go up an inside staircase. Everything is on the main living area. Once you have made it up the stairs you are looking right out at Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, Cascade Mountains. From the comfortable living space you see it all including fabulous views of the water and Seattle!

To get to the master bedroom you will climb a very comfortable and beautifully done railed ladder that has rails on both sides, posts at bottom and top with a ballast that takes you up to a sumptuous queen size bed up in a loft. You'll view Puget Sound and have a fantastic view of Mt. Baker and you will feel like you're sleeping in the treetops! There is a flat screen television and DVD/Blue Ray player in the Loft living area as well as a television up in the bedroom. The Loft Suite has a fully equipped kitchenette so you can eat in if you desire. You can cook and enjoy the lights of Seattle from the dining table as well as everywhere else on the main living area. The bathroom has an old fashioned claw bathtub with shower. This unit also has a brand new queen size sleeper sofa that can sleep two people. This sleeper is very comfortable as it has had some added comfort to it for a good nights sleep! Four people can comfortably enjoy this suite and offers you a beautiful getaway.

Lose yourself on our country island with beach walks, unique shops, galleries, great restaurants and world-famous Blodell Reserve. The majestic Olympics, historic attractions and Seattle are all within easy reach. Your Hostess and Inn Keeper will assure you have a memorable visit. Short and Long term stays are available.

About Kristin Sheets

Skiff Point Guest House was originally founded by Janice Parker. Jan's daughter; Kristin is the owner and hostess carrying on her mother's legacy. Kristin has been running the inn over the past three plus years now. This is a very special place to myself and my guests. I have had guests that have returned every year after year which makes this a home away from home for many of my guests who have become dear friends. 'Come as strangers and leave as friends'. Following in my mother's footsteps I am carrying on her legacy.....

I love making this a special place for my guests, giving them a wonderful place to stay and enjoy. I always leave little special touches for my guests including treats like dark chocolate, perhaps a bottle of wine for those that are staying for a week or more, fresh flowers, bath salts, and more... I want my guests to feel like they are really getting a treat and I love being an innkeeper. Your comfort is so important to me!

My mother tastefully decorated the units with her gift of interior designing and a great eye for beauty! I had made some wonderful changes to the suites and am continuing to make upgrades to the units to make them more luxurious and inviting for everyone to enjoy.

As your hostess I am happy to help you make your travel plans, personally talk to you about any questions you might have and provide all that I can to make your visit that much more special.

Kristin Sheets purchased this studio in 1983

Why Kristin Sheets chose Bainbridge Island

Why pick Skiff Point Guest House & Retreat? The view and beautiful surroundings with privacy! You also will feel the peacefulness this place has to offer. Skiff Point Guest House & Retreat is family owned and has been passed down to myself and my brother from our mother. She loved this place and wanted it to be a special retreat for guests to enjoy and go away with long lasting memories feeling pampered and rested.

What makes this studio unique

It's the location and the view that make guests fall in love with this private guest house/studio. You will feel the sea water breezes coming up off the bluff, watching the bald eagles soar and simply relaxing will give you all that you need to have a relaxing getaway. The Loft Suite offers a romantic setting and offers guests a view that you will never forget!

Peaceful & beautiful retreat

Peaceful & beautiful retreat
  • 5 of 5
I dreamed of a luxurious treehouse to escape the city in, and I got my wish with this lovely property. Two dreamy days of staring out out the water - on the deck and on the couch and from the dining table. There are water and forest views out of every window, including skylights. The days I was there it mostly rained, and I was absolutely delighted to sit inside or on the covered part of the deck, waking up to the rain on the roof. Every night I took a bath in the clawfoot tub. The suite is wonderfully appointed with great attention to detail, like fresh spring flowers on the table, good coffee, and nice bath salts. Everything is clean and comfortable, and the towels and bed sheets especially are 4-star hotel quality. And then of course there is Kristin, who provided a very warm welcome from the time I booked through after my checkout. I hope to return and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you stay in my Loft Suite. It is a wonderful place to retreat to and get out of the city in just a short time. I am so glad you enjoyed all the special touches, especially the tub to soak in. Even though it rained that weekend I am so delighted you enjoyed it all! I would love to have you return! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your lovely comments you are so sweet! Do come back and I always love to give discounts to returning guests. Take care and hope to see you again sometime soon.

Royal Treatment

  • 5 of 5
First of all THANK YOU Kristin for providing such a wonderful, high-quality, nurturing weekend getaway for me and my husband. We are from Kirkland but needed a weekend to ourselves. Your loft studio provided the perfect environment for connection, meditation, creativity, and even cooking! You treated us to amazing chocolate and the amenities were equal to any 4 star hotel. You provided the best sheets, towels, soaps, and even robes! You've decorated the place with warms and art and comfort. I highly recommend the loft studio and the property, which includes the Carriage House. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Even in the middle of the winter (it snowed while we were there!) it's a beautiful view with lots to do (but we chose to just stay in the studio the WHOLE time!). The only thing about the loft studio that one needs to be mindful of is that the bedroom is a loft... it's up a ladder into a comfortable room. So if you are afraid of heights rent the Carriage House otherwise it's a perfect "nest" to sleep in!

Skiff Point Guest House and Retreat has two inviting suites on the property. (The Loft Suite) and (The Carriage House, listing #565191). Inquire with your dates and I will respond quickly to let you know if it is available.

Both units are with fully equipped living, dining and sleeping areas offer casual elegance and comfort. Warm lights fills the spacious two-story high-ceilinged suites. Relaxing decks expand your amazing views.

The Loft Suite offers a romantic feel but offers the best views on the property. It has its own private garden entrance and is on a second level. There is a comfortable railed ladder on both sides with posts at the bottom and top with a ballast that takes you up to a sumptuous queen size bed up in a loft. You'll view Puget Sound and have a fantastic view of Mt. Baker and you will feel like you're sleeping in the treetops and on a cloud as some guests have described! There is a flat screen television with Dish Satellite and blue ray player in the Loft living area as well as an LED television up in the bedroom. The Loft Suite has a fully equipped kitchenette to eat in if you desire to cook and enjoy the lights of Seattle from the dining table as well as everywhere else on the main living area. The bathroom has an old fashioned claw bathtub with shower. This unit also has a new queen size pull out sofa that can sleep two people. Four people can comfortably enjoy this suite and offers you a beautiful getaway.

The Carriage House is in a completely separate dwelling and sits further back on the property away from the bluff. The Loft Suite has the best location on the property. Just ask your hostess and she will be happy to accommodate you with any questions you may have. There is your own parking spot as well as additional parking for extra guests.

Enjoy the lovely gardens ass well as the property grounds that offer a spectacular view. Walk down to the beach or enjoy the forest trails across the street.

Lose yourself on our country island with beach walks, unique shops, galleries, great restaurants and world-famous Blodell Reserve. The majestic Olympics, historic attractions and Seattle are all within easy reach. There is a local historic mercantile building located within walking distance that offers organic produce, garden plants, home nautical items as well as clothing and don't forget to get some freshly baked bread. There is also the Rolling Bay Cafe that offers daily baked fresh pastries and serves lunch. Across the street from the cafe is a mini market and an Italian Deli where you can eat in their bistro setting or bring back to your suite to cook up or re-heat. Their lasagna is the best! You have all you need if you do not feel like venturing out far. There is also Rolling Bay Winery down by Manitou Beach which is also located within walking distance to Skiff Point Guest House. We are located just short of 5 minutes drive from the Ferry terminal and downtown area. There is a new bus called 'The Frog Hopper' which is new this year. Travelers can pick the bus up at the Ferry Terminal for $7 and it takes you to the popular locations on the island including Rolling Bay Hay & Feed which is walking distance to Skiff Point, it also takes you to other locations like Lynnwood center for shops. the TreeHouse Cafe (great pizza) an event center, The Beach House Restaurant, and of course the Frog Hopper takes you to the historical 'Frog Rock'. This bus only runs July through September. We are hoping it will expand its months of operation and also it is possibility in expanding off the island. There is also Kitsap Tours which gives you a great historical tour.

You will feel like you are really getting away here at this special place where memories begin and last a lifetime. Please call if you would like to inquire about availability and if you have any questions you'd like answered. As your hostess and innkeeper I am happy to accommodate you in anyway I can.
