Larry Fischer purchased this studio in 2003

Why Larry Fischer chose Puget Sound

Prior to moving to Bainbridge Island from Billings Montana, my wife and I had vacationed here for several years. We were always struck with the beauty of the area so when we had a chance to move here we didn't hesitate. We weren't disappointed. We have lived here now since 2003 and love every minute of it. We searched quite a while to find this property since waterfront property is hard to find and with 1 acre and a dock it was even harder.

Every morning Sandy and I spend time looking out our picture window at Fletcher Bay while having coffee and are amazed that we never get tired of watching the water and wildlife. The kinetic nature of water along with the variety of wildlife that use it is truly remarkable. It is a rare place to live and we are truly thankful of our good fortune to live here.

What makes this studio unique

Every day we see wildlife including Bald Eagle, many different migratory waterfowl, Blue Heron, Sea Otter, Seal, Osprey, Canadian Geese, a wide variety of song birds, Deer, Raccoon, and Fox..

Kayaking, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, sailing, birding, and gardening almost year round. There is always some kind of flower blooming here year round.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property! So relaxing, lovely sitting areas. Bed was super comfy! We loved having the free bikes and kayaking. The Indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit added to our experience. We picked fresh blackberries daily and rented a three hour sail experience from Dream boat Adventure. We totally enjoyed our week long stay.

Charming Bayfront Studio

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Larry's Bayside Studio. So peaceful and relaxing. The dock was the perfect spot to read all afternoon. The modern finishes in the studio were so pretty! Can't wait to come back

Beautiful place, amazing views, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying here, the hosts were great and had tons of equipment for us to use during our stay. We even saw a seal swimming around in the bay as we paddled around one day!

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Sandy's Bayside Studio was the perfect weekend stay for me and my husband. The room and view was relaxing and everything we could've asked for. The studio is attached to the main house but we still had complete privacy. The bikes were fun to use, wish we took the kayaks out. Next time! Overall, excellent stay and plan on returning!

seattle vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate and the gardens we're gorgeous! It was the perfect place to stay for our Bainbridge Island vacation. It is far enough to be away from it all but close enough to get everywhere we wanted to go quickly. Larry greeted us shortly after we arrived and gave us excellent tips on dining and site-seeing! We also took a small boat ride which was a real treat! I can't recommend this property enough. If you are looking for a 5 star property with wonderful hosts this is it!
