Why diane kurzontkowski chose Bainbridge Island
we found these cottages and the location reminiscent of cape cod where we grew up - "sweep out" cottages, great for a romantic get-away or piling the whole family in. We love the location, warm in the summer protected from the northern winds, southwestern exposure for lovely sunsets. We like being able to walk 1 block to the movie theatre, bakery/deli, morning latte, 3 restaurants and a small grocery store. 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!

Perfect Place for a Work Retreat
The cottage was just perfect for the four of us to get away from all the other things to do at home and focus in on this intense project. The beds were very comfortable and the sofa is almost the size of a twin bed and has the best view in the house. It was also great to sit around the living room and brainstorm but also take a mental break to watch the ferry come and go at the mouth of the bay where the cottage was situated. Great grocery shopping at the Town and Country Market and local dining were also big pluses. I would really love to come here for a vacation because working here was fantastic.
You and your team were fantastic guests. We are so happy you were able to enjoy the views and comfort of the cottage while on your work trip. Also glad to hear you were able to take advantage of the local restaurants. We are really very lucky! Come back in the warmer months and you'll be treated to outside live music at the wine bar just down the street and time in the hammock at the beach ! -Diane
Family of 5 enjoyed our time at this charming beach house!
This is one of my most favorite places to visit when I come to Washington. The location is perfect with the nearby shopping, restaurants, and easy access to the ferry. We were able to walk on the BI/Seattle Ferry to enjoy a quick afternoon trip to Seattle, making back just in time for dinner at the house. We loved enjoying the beach, sunset, watching the ferry cross, and the backyard is perfect for playing catch and having dinner near the water. The home was clean & comfortable and fit our family of 5 perfectly. The owner is very accommodating & was great with her communications. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beach house! We hope to return soon.
Fantastic and great location
Quintessential beach/cottage house! Adorable!
Charming, authentic "old Bainbridge" cottage in an ideal location
I booked the cottage for a girls' weekend with two friends. I live on island, and knew the location would be perfect for us. The adorable house has been thoughtfully updated while retaining much of its historic character, and everything was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed morning coffee on the patio, watching otters frolic on the floating dock. My friend lounged happily in the hammock each afternoon, and we all loved the fire pit. Our only grumble was that we should have booked three nights instead of just two. Diane was responsive to messages, and graciously arranged for us to check in early. A stress-free, easygoing, happy experience from beginning to end. We are already planning our next visit!
Spectacularly beautiful, plus comfortable and convenient!
Best vacation rental ever
We loved all ten days, rain and shine. Gorgeous gardens and views, otters, bald eagles, water fowl, dramatic tides, a perfect place for kayaks and paddle boards.
The house is clean, well decorated and private; the spacious patio area across the wide lawn, right on the water, has a fire pit, a big oval table and chairs.
The beds and bedding are good quality and comfortable, and the kitchen is well arranged. We spent time just gazing at the water and forested peninsulas, and watched the ferries pass far enough to be a delight instead of a disturbance.
It is so quiet, and yet just a short walk to the charming village of Lynnwood Center.
We will definitely return.
Gorgeous views, comfy beds, quality bedding, well-stocked kitchen, extra towels, perfect location -- walking distance from a cool, old movie theatre and some very good restaurants...and did I say, gorgeous views?! You can tell that this property is loved and well-cared for -- exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, and very functional throughout. What a relaxing and fun place to be!
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.
