Relax in the privacy of your classic 1930's beach cottage. Located on Pleasant Beach, Bainbridge Island's best no-bank, sandy beach. The cottage faces west for beautiful views and the afternoon sunshine. The yard is professionally landscaped and the beach is accessed by only a few steps. Relax in the claw-foot tub or read a book on the covered porch. Enjoy quality high thread count cotton sheets, along with robes and towels. Stroll the beach for agates, sand dollars, shells, bald eagles, herons, otters and seals. Stretch out a beach towel and enjoy the warm sunshine and waves lapping against the shoreline. Take a nap on the hammock between two cedar trees. Barbecue a salmon and eat by the beach on the patio. Great biking and hiking directly out the front door. An easy walk to your morning latte and bakery, restaurants, Walt's neighborhood market, The Historic Lynwood Theater, along with the new Pleasant Beach Village stores & restaurants.

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.

This charming cottage is a rare find! Beautiful and serene waterfront setting; well appointed, comfortable and relaxing ambiance within. The details are well thought out and the home is equipped with every want and need. This lovely cottage made for a delightful Christmas week stay. Julie and Don were most thoughtful and considerate in all of the preparation for our arrival---the table was donned with a lovely poinsettia and a happy, sparkling Christmas tree was in the living room! Such a personal touch!! Do not hesitate to consider this property for your next stay on this wonderful island!

The Bainbridge Island Beach House never disappoints!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at Julie and Don's property here on Pleasant Beach for as long as we've been coming to Bainbridge, which has been several years now. Since the reviews have been perfect, I'll just say that they're spot on. The attention to detail, from the plush towels, ultra-comfortable bed and linens, to the small details like the Nespresso and French press are unlike anything you will be able to find at some formulaic B&B.

It's like stepping into your own home, but with a better view!

Wonderful stay—felt like coming home!

  • 5 of 5

We used to live on Bainbridge Island, and after moving back to Seattle, feel the need to go back and visit every so often:). The pictures (while very representative of the cottage) don't do it justice. It's a remarkably charming and comfortable place. The beds were extremely comfy, the towels were amazing, and we very much appreciated the thoughtful details provided by our gracious hosts. The kids (ages 5 & 7) loved the beach and the short walk to the local frozen yogurt place. We loved staring at the water, watching the ferries go by, drinking coffee (then later, wine) on the back porch. A wonderful, restful weekend we hope to repeat at least once or twice a year! Highly recommended!

Bainbridge beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Charming, cozy, very well maintained and loved beach cottage. My kids loved the hammock, exploring in the low tide and walking back and fifth to the little town.

The island is beautiful and think the beach cottage was the perfect fit. We will back!!

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.
