Why Julie Schulte chose Puget Sound

After looking at real estate for two years we found the cottages. We love the location, warm in the summer protected from the northern winds. We like being able to walk 1 block to the movie theatre, grocery store, bakery/deli, morning latte and 3 restaurants. Our favorite activities include hiking and biking from the cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are so close to Seattle, a 35 minute ferry ride, but a world apart. Step back in time to your own classic cottages!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were the first family to stay in this endearing home when it came on the rental market. The view of Puget Sound was phenomenal. While there we spotted a bald eagle, a seal, water fowl and dozens of small birds. The home is well equipped, allowing us to prepare most of our meals on-site to be enjoyed overlooking the waterfront. It was peaceful and quiet, with outstanding beds for a good night's sleep. It was conveniently located, a very short walk from an outstanding bakery and other little eateries. The location near Ft. Ward Park also gave us a great place to take morning walks. We would be happy to return for a visit. Next time we'll rent a kayak for paddling around the quiet cove.

It was breath taking when we walked in.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful weekend here at this property. It brought us so much serenity and love by just being there. It was tastefully decorated and enough provisions were prepared for us. everything was clean and pristine. Owners left us a beautiful welcoming note with some of their favorite places to visit on the island. That was helpful as we were new to the island.

We would go there again. the only wish we had was to have had a firepit. I realize the liability for that might be too high, however.

Thank you for a beautiful memorable weekend.

wonderful beach retreat!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family. Clean with comfy beds, and a great lawn to play on outside. Appreciated the buckets and beach tools, as we spent many hours combing the beach for shells/rocks. Friendly neighbors. Kitchen had everything we needed. Super close to cute Lynwood area with shops and eats. Would definitely recommend staying there!

Great beach cottage setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beach cottage; very comfortable, peaceful setting overlooking the water and great location by Lynnwood Center. If we were to comment on anything, it would be the yard in need of some TLC. However, it didn't affect our stay for the week. We'll be back!

Perfect Birthday Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house for an extended weekend enjoyed our visit tremendously. We have two small children (1 & 3 year old) and having the beach + lawn right next to the house was perfect. Both kids loved gathering shells and playing by the water. Also having a flat lawn right next to ocean is great and enables families with kids enjoy the scenery while playing/hanging out with their family.

The whole point for us was to get away from the hectic work life and take a breather. The house worked well for this purpose. Most of the sides facing the ocean/beach are full of windows which ensures that you can have a great view from many rooms. The beds and bedding was extremely comfortable (as others have also mentioned). I really liked being able to walk to Lynnwood center and get fresh bread and a growler of local beer to enjoy.

Highly recommend!

Bainbridge Island is rich in the arts, has fantastic restaurants and wineries and great biking and hiking right outside the door of the cottages. Bainbridge Island is located a short 35 minute ferry ride from Downtown Seattle.
