Welcome to June's Place- a sunny beach home with a soul located on the exquisite and tranquil Pt. Monroe. Discover the front beach footsteps away from your door or relax on the spectacular natural Ipe wood back deck on the lagoon. Tastefully appointed interior incorporating a blend of contemporary and 100 year-old antique furnishings. High-quality, well-maintained home with natural bamboo flooring throughout. The main living area with views to the beach surrounds a natural wood burning stove for warm conversation. Relax in the sitting room with a good book, watch a movie or the wildlife in the lagoon. Create a meal in the fully equipped kitchen and dine on the back deck over the lagoon or inside with views to the front beach. Enjoy a beach fire or have a picnic! Play a game of croquet or savor a stroll along the beach. Slow down, experience the exquisite surroundings, rich wildlife and changing of the tides
Birdwatching: For those of you who are birdwatchers, you will be thrilled with what you might “spot” during your visit. The autumn, winter, and spring months bring extraordinary, migratory visitors to both the salt water estuary, and deep waters of Agate Pass. Amongst the confirmed spots: Black Oystercatcher, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Harlequin Duck, Long Tailed Duck, Surf Scoter, Common and Barrow’s Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Red Breasted Merganser, Double Crested Cormorant, Pigeon Guillemot, American Wigeon, Common Murre, Horned Grebe, Western Grebe, Surfbird, Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Black Turnstone, Sanderling, Western Sandpiper. During the summer months, the resident Great Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, and Mallard Ducks will entertain you down by the water. Just take a short walk to nearby Fay Bainbridge State Park, and listen to and look at the trees. Early morning and just before sunset are the best times for woodland birding.
Test your beachcombing skills to find sand, seashells, stones and driftwood, along with gems of green, blue, red and orange sea glass. For the discerning comber, look for the agates, mostly orange, with the sun to their back, on the lowest of tides, right at the line between the large rocks, and the sand...
My property was purchased by my late parents in the 70's, originally a small cabin which was totally rebuilt in 1992 to become a year-round home for my mother, June. I have many fabulous memories of spending glorious summers here as a child and still to this day it is a place that warms my heart and soothes the soul.
The Lake Isle of Innisfree
William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine beans rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow….
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; I hear it in my deep heart’s core.
June’s Place reminds me of Yeats’ poem, and staying here cures most ills and heartaches - I find there is no “cure” for leaving, except perhaps to return again and again. Thanks Leslie for making it all possible.
I was meeting children who live in the area. We were so thrilled with the house and location. The kitchen was stocked with every conceivable cooking pots and utensils. We ate in more than out. There were fabulous games...we played Trivial Pursuit for hours. We also enjoyed the bedrooms and bathrooms; particularly, the soaking tub. My daughter sort of lived in there! Neighbors were very congenial.
We walked to a park at the end of Point Monroe, which was beautiful! We Also visited Bloedel Reserve; spectacular. Thank you, Leslie, for one of the best vacations with my children ever.
Beach in the front, lagoon in the back. Incredible views from everywhere. We loved this house!
Our first time visiting Seattle and the spectacular area of Puget Sound, and we could not have asked for more! What an idyllic setting this impeccable and cozy home on the spit offers. We were mesmerized by the water views from both the front porch and the back deck. The house is spotless and comfortably furnished with good beds and bedding, which is a must as far as I am concerned. June is a tremendous host, and she goes the extra mile to ensure that this is a peaceful and relaxing home away from home. Her insight made our stay on Bainbridge delightful! We would definitely choose to stay here again!
Loved my stay there. The outdoor areas were my favorite and the beds were very comfortable. We weren't as comfortable in the living/tv area and had some trouble figuring out how to play a movie. Over all great and we'll be back. Great for a couple of people in need or r and r.
June´s place is located in one of the nicest part of Bainbridge Island. It is right at the beach with an amzing view. the House is great and well equipped:
We will certainly try to come back again.
