We are a Seattle family that uses this great cottage occassionally on weekends.

Kristan Weller purchased this cottage in 2011

The cottage represents a wonderful combination of accessibility and remoteness. You can walk to town (Winslow) along the beach or through a beautifully manicured golf course and take the ferry right into the center of bustling Seattle. But when you are on the deck of the cottage enjoying the southern exposure and ferry/boat traffic entering the harbor, you are a world away.

Having full southern exposure is a wonderful thing in the northwest. This cottage is protected from the north winds and open to as much sunlight as possible. It takes some local knowledge to understand the impact of this, but when you are sitting on the deck on a 70 degree day and it feels like it's 80 you will appreciate the difference. Or in November when you are reading a book by the fire watching an afternoon storm - you will have optimal natural light vs a place buried in the trees.

FERRY TALE KINGDOM

  • 5 of 5
We feel like we hit the lottery with this lovely spot during a rare full week of Pacific Northwest sunshine! The house overlooks Eagle Harbor, where the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry passes by regularly. We walked or rode bikes into town often, explored the charming main street of Winslow, and took the ferry into Seattle's Pike Street and other sites. Each day we simply reveled in the beauty of this unique location; every night we built fires on the beach and enjoyed the stars. The cottage, bunkhouse, and studio are ideal for multiple-generation family gatherings, with plenty of gathering spaces as well as places to retreat. The house has been recently remodeled yet maintains a cozy cottage decor that is fresh and inviting. We found the beds comfortable and appreciated the quality linens. Our family likes to cook, so we were particularly pleased by the well-appointed kitchen, plentiful wine glasses, and sharp knives. I can't remember the last vacation I enjoyed as much. We hope to return again!

PERFECT NORTHWEST VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for a Northwest vacation. It's a beautiful ferry ride away from downtown Seattle, the house is as charming (and clean) as can be, the beach is fantastic for hours of fun for the kids (and adults too), the views are spectacular, and Winslow (a short 5 minute drive away) has some wonderful restaurants, bakeries, and shops. I highly recommend this spot for a fun family adventure!

INCREDIBLE HOME, INCREDIBLE SPOT, INCREDIBLE VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
I visited this adorable cottage with my two young daughters last summer and we had a great time. The girls loved the bunkroom and I loved sitting out on the deck each morning enjoying my coffee and watching the ferry go by. The location could not be better - you can walk right out to the water and there is a great firepit at the waters edge to enjoy after dinner. The house has everything you need. I highly recommend this home - we will definitely be going again!

The quintessential Seattle experience – this Bainbridge Island beach cottage is just a short ferry ride from all that downtown Seattle offers.

The property is one of the original island escapes – sitting on an acre of oceanfront land, the cottage is seen from the ferry as you enter Eagle Harbor. Built in 1907, the quaint 2-bedroom cottage with play loft and detached cedar-lined bunkroom has great character, and for extra guests can be combined with the adjacent carriage studio with king bed, bath and kitchenette.

The property is easily accessible from downtown Seattle via a 35-minute ferry ride and walk/drive through the Wing Point Country Club golf course to the private lane which accesses waterfront homes on either side of Wing Point. Located near the end of the point, the location is remote and peaceful and home to numerous bald eagles that nest in the surrounding evergreens.

The cottage faces due south, oriented toward the entrance to Eagle Harbor. It has original bedrooms (small!) one with a queen bed and the other with built-in bunks. There is a separate bunkhouse consisting of a queen and 3 bunk beds connected to the cottage by a short breezeway. The cottage deck has outdoor dining and sitting areas and looks out onto a large flat lawn and the harbor beyond.

The studio boasts some of the best views on the property with a vaulted ceiling, king bed, sitting area and kitchenette – and is an ideal spot for a nanny or grandparents.

There are numerous activities both on Bainbridge and downtown Seattle, allowing you to combine a remote island vacation with trips into the city to see the many sites that have made Seattle such a popular destination. The ferry is only a 20 minute walk from the house (along the beach if you like at low tide) and most of the major Seattle attractions are just a short walk from the Seattle ferry terminal – allowing you to leave the car behind.

Downtown Winslow on Bainbridge is also just a 20 minute walk (or take one of the vintage tandem bikes provided) where you will find dozens of independent boutiques and specialty shops including a wonderful assortment of restaurants, galleries and antique stores. Winslow also features three tasting rooms that serve five of the island's wineries as well as top-rated restaurants like Hitchcock, Marche and Four Swallows.

Naturalists will enjoy beach walks and destinations like Bloedel reserve - a 150-acre nature preserve, and gamblers can have a car sent for them from nearby Clearwater Casino – all convenient options on the island.

CNN and Travel and Leisure did a piece on the uniqueness of Bainbridge:

At the property, there are also numerous activities to enjoy - including 2 tandem bikes for rides in to town, kayaking the harbor, bocce ball, outdoor ping pong, or badminton/volleyball in the yard. Just a short walk up the lane is Wing Point Country Club where we can host guests for a round of golf, tennis or afternoon at the pool schedules permitting. We look forward to sharing this classic beach house property and all that Bainbridge Island has to offer!

Please note this is a non-smoking property.
