RECENTLY UPDATED PRIVATE GUEST HOUSE OFFERS GUESTS A QUIET & BEAUTIFUL GETAWAY!

Bainbridge Island House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Unit, 2 Queen Beds; One In A Private Bedroom & Second Bed Up In A Loft

The Carriage House has its own garden entrance and is in its own private dwelling. This is the perfect place for families and parties of 4 to 5 people as it offers guests plenty space, seating and two queen size beds!

One you get here you will have your own driveway and enter in through a private garden entrance. There is an outside staircase that takes you up to a deck area that has plenty of seating, a table and a BBQ! Enjoy the views of the Puget Sound, Cascade Mountains and the beautiful gardens.

Once you enter into this private guest house a spacious unit awaits you. The entire unit has just been updated with many things, furnishings, new bathroom vanity, window treatments, and more. Everything is located on the main living area with warm pine floors and area rugs to give it a soft feeling. This place is cozy with a wood stove to enjoy on rainy and cold evenings. (Your innkeeper will supply wood upon request, if available) The sky lights brighten this guest house and ceiling fan for those warm days. You will enjoy views of the gardens, flowers, fir and cedar trees as well as a view of Puget sound and the Mountains can be seen from the deck, master bedroom and the living room. Watch the birds as there are many here; humming birds, red headed wood peckers, starlings and the Bald Eagles are always soaring by. You can actually hear the wind underneath their wings.

This unit has all the amenities you would want for a short or extended stay. This guest house can be rented long term during Fall through Spring at a great rate!

You will feel right at home, very comfortable and feel like you are miles away from it all! Yet you are only a 5 minute drive to the ferry and 30 minutes you are in the great Emerald City 'Seattle'.

The Carriage House has a full size kitchen with a stove range and oven, dishwasher, full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender and a coffee maker. There are plenty of dishes, pots and pans and a dining table where you can enjoy your meals at. Nothing is lacking in this kitchen and the kitchen window you are looking out a the cedar trees giving you that Northwest feel.

The bathroom has a shower with a new beautiful vanity with a black marble top and back splash with self closing drawers and shelving for all your toiletries, etc.. Skiff Point pampers its guests with plenty of towels, hand made soaps from Sweet Life Farms of Bainbridge Island, hair dryer, toiletries and robes are provided for your enjoyment.

The master bedroom offers a queen size bed with luxurious sheets and closes off with glass French doors and curtains to give it a romantic feel but offers privacy from the rest of the house and your family members and friends. The bedroom also opens up out to the deck with glass French doors. It makes it a lovely place on a warm sunny morning and grab your cup of coffee and enjoy the deck from your bedroom with the French Doors opened. Enjoy all the birds and views of the ships going by as well as all the sailboats.

The bedroom does have a closet, cabinet, bed stands, sitting chair and windows looking out at the garden, the water and mountains.

There is a second queen size bed up in a cozy loft. The loft area is great for extra guests or other family members which is accessed by a comfortable railed ladder. There is a log beam that runs up along the ladder making you feel like you are up in a tree fort. Windows open up out to the cedar trees up in the loft so you feel like you are up in the trees. An airbed and air mattress are also available for those guests that do not wish to use the loft or you need for extra guests and family members. There is a one time minimal fee for guests using the loft to cover the cost of extra linens, and to have the bed made and loft area cleaned to make it very comfortable and clean for guests.

The Living room is very spacious with two couches, chairs and a large flat screen television. For your entertainment there is dish satellite, blue ray player, CD/radio, cards, books, puzzles and games. This guest house is nice and spacious so the whole family can enjoy time together and yet have plenty of room.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the gardens and encouraged to enjoy the main deck to enjoy the panoramic views. There are benches throughout the property for your enjoyment to view the birds, eagles, gardens, boats and of course the water, mountain and city views.

In walking distance you can get to the beach, stroll along Manitou Beach and view beautiful Mt. Rainier and Seattle. Go to Rolling Bay Winery for some great wine tasting which is located right off Manitou Beach. There is the Rolling Bay Music Hall formerly called The Music Guild for occasional concerts which is just up the street from Skiff Point Guest House. Also you can walk to Rolling Bay Mercantile building which has been restored as it is historic and carries a lot of history of the island. It has a garden nursery as well as home nautical items, clothing and local organic produce including farm fresh eggs and milk. There is also a cafe to enjoy espresso, teas and daily baked pastries, bread and lunch as well. Across the street from there is also a mini market for the basics and an Italian Deli that serves lunch and dinner in a casual bistro setting or take back to your private guests house to heat up and enjoy with a view! They are known for their meatballs and the best pasta around! There are also lovely walks you can take in the quiet neighborhood, go down to the beach or walk the trails through the woods just across the street. There are bikes on the premises for guests to enjoy as well.

Skiff Point Guest House is only a 35 minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle and then you are in the downtown area of Bainbridge Island called Winslow. Skiff Point is only a short 5 minute drive from downtown Bainbridge Island. Bainbridge Island is your great gateway to the Olympic Peninsula where you can explore many places; state parks, historic towns, beaches and many walking trails. There are many attractions and places to visit and only a short distance away. Be up in the mountains in an hour! On Bainbridge Island there is a lot of family fun things to do as there is a Kidi museum as well as the new art museum and historic museum for all to enjoy. Plenty of shopping, boutiques, galleries and restaurants here on Bainbridge Island. There is the Blodell Reserve which is a must see attraction which has many walking trails, an enormous variety of plants, trees, ponds and a Japanese Garden and structures including the Blodell Mansion that you can tour. Enjoy the Grand Forest, many trails and parks that Bainbridge Island has to offer.

I do hope you decide to stay here and I would love to accommodate. You will love it here and I love to give my guests a memory of being pampered, feeling rested and I always leave fresh flowers and chocolates for my guests as well as lovely touches.

All the windows have received new blinds and there are new couches in the unit as well. Some of the pictures do not show some of the upgrades this guest house has received. I am always trying to do something new every year to the properties here.

If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to accommodate and help you in any way I can to make your reservation as easy as possible. I do look forward to your stay here.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Wow! This guest house is so quiet at night you can hear a pin drop. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation and a clean comfortable place to stay with a great view from the balcony, you have to give Skiff Point a try. The owner is as nice and helpful as it gets. I stayed in the carriage house and it was perfect! My only suggestion is that if you want to travel around at a distance then I would rent a car. For me, taxis and tours worked just fine. I plan on going back. It was that wonderful a stay.

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 few years now. This is a very special place to myself and my guests. I have had guests that have returned every year for the past many years 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 house in 1983

Skiff Point Guest House is a special place to me as now its been passed down to my brother and I. This property made me want to leave California behind and stay here where it makes you feel at so much peace. Hearing the waves lap up on the shore and the Eagles soaring certainly make you melt into this beautiful home. The gardens and all the birds are wonderful to watch, even those occasional deer that want to eat the flowers and plenty of squirrels around too! I have to say the memories and all the guests that have come to stay year after year make it that much more special.

You will fall in love with this place since you get a bit of everything, a view of the water (breathtaking), and the views of Seattle, the ship traffic going by, a walk in the forest or take a trail walk down to the beach simply makes it all a treasure. What a great location too! Only a 5 minute drive to the ferry and be in downtown Seattle in 35 minutes.

Lovely, clean, well equipped

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House was lovely. It is comfortable, fully equipped with everything you would need, including a full kitchen, Internet, satellite TV, robes and plush towels, etc. It's nicely decorated and cozy. The owner is very helpful and friendly. I'm giving it an excellent rating, with one caveat: be advised that the advertised rate does not include use of the second (loft) bedroom -- that is extra.

Owner's Response: I want to thank you for your lovely comments and for staying in the Carriage House. I am glad you all enjoyed the amenities and the robes! I love giving my guests all the special touches making them feel special; fresh flowers and chocolates as well as hand made soaps. It is so important to give my guests a lovely place to retreat to that is clean and has all the comforts of home. I wish I did not have to charge the extra fee for the use of the loft and the 2nd queen size bed. The fee helps so that extra time and attention is given to make up the loft area nice and cozy so its special for those extra guests. I strive to make sure every guest that stays in the Carriage House has a wonderful and tranquil experience. Here at Skiff Point Guest House is is so important that guests are pampered and treated to plenty of nice towels, robes and luxurious linens. Skiff Point is delighted to give discounts to returning guests! Thanks again for staying here and I am so glad you had a wonderful stay, I love to receive comments, thank you, thank you!! Take care and I welcome you all back sometime soon. Best wishes to you!

There is much to do when you arrive on Bainbridge Island. A must see is Blodell Reserve which has beautiful trails of endless varities of plants and trees. Pritchard park memorial and it's sandy beach. There are 3 museums to visit; The art museum, Kidi Museum and the Historic Museum. Come in July for the Lavender festival in Sequim or the Garden tour here on Bainbridge Island. Great farmers market every Saturday. Take a days trip over to Seattle for whatever you desire, fine dining, a concert or visit the Space Needle or an underground tour of Pioneer Square. Visit Port Townsend or a trip over to Canada and see the beautiful city of Victoria. There is the crab festival in Port Angeles in October too! So many things, so many places and all within a short distance and time you can see it all but you must give yourself enough time so make it a long visit if you can.
