Our guest cottage, located in Bainbridge Island's trendy Lynwood neighborhood, blends the new with our rural mini farm and our friendly goats. Our island is 30 minutes from downtown Seattle by ferry. Enjoy the best of both worlds, wine bar and restaurants. We are a small working farm just steps away from Puget Sound and a public beach. The cottage is seperate and private, with a romantic fire place.

The space

Our cottage is roomy and comfortable. There is a cozy seating area and the propane fireplace makes it romantic and warm even on a chilly day. Due to our insurance we are only allowed to accommodate 2 guests and there is no stove or oven . There are many restaurants in our area and a deli nearby for sandwiches, etc. The windows look out onto our mini farm with large trees, woodlands and grassy lawns. Parking is next to the cottage. There is a patio with table and seating for nice weather.
The park's trail is adjacent to our property and the public beach is just a short walk away.
If you would like me to make up the pull out sofa please let me know before you arrive and I will have it ready for you.

Guest access

Guests can walk easily to the trail beside the property which is a lovely walk or a run or hike for those who like more exercise. The beach is about 400 ft in front of the property and we have seen Orcas playing in the waters of the sound from the beach. There is bird watching at the Schel Chelb Estuary a few hundred feet down Point White Dr. This section of Bainbridge is very popular with cyclists.

Interaction with guests

Our home is located next to the guest cottage and we are available to help in any way we can. We will provide fresh towels daily and if the guests have forgotten to bring something we will try to provide it for them. We will change the sheets after one week if the guests are staying longer than 7 days. We do not provide daily housekeeping. Guests are welcome to ring our bell or call us for directions or just to ask about things here on Bainbridge or elsewhere in the vicinity and we will try to answer their questions or direct them to someone who can if we don't know the answer.
We do have goats, and they are generally quiet unless they have spotted a cayote or something they deem to be a danger then they may sound an alarm. We also have an old pug dog (13). Her name is Bobbie and she is the Queen. We hope you enjoy the animals and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Other things to note

We ask that guests lower the thermostats if they are going to be gone for the day. Think green, please recycle bottles, cans, paper and all recycleables. There is a garbage can and recycle can in the small shed behind the cottage, but just put the bags outside the door and I will take them when I pass by. The City of Bainbridge has banned plastic bags so guests will find a re-usable grocery bag in the guest house. Check in is 3:00 PM and check out is 11 AM. These times can be flexible under certain conditions.

No more than 2 guests are allowed due to our insurance restraints which also prohibit cooking in the guest cottage other than microwave, toaster, and coffee/tea pot.
We do not allow pets because our old pugs are very territorial and do not get along well with others. Also, the goats are very afraid of dogs and are even afraid of our pugs, which is another reason we do not allow pets.

If something is really dirty and has to be washed the large wash tub in the laundry room behind the guest house is available to use - we're talking boots, bicycle tires, etc. The washer and dryer may be used by guests, please do not over fill washer and feel free to use the laundry supplies. Please don't feed the goats, they will beg, and they have delicate tummies. We will be happy to introduce you to them and to the chickens, the pugs and the crazy cockatoo.

What a wonderful stay! Perfect location, so quiet and cozy. Appreciate the extra towels and bedding and the fireplace is great in damp PNW. We appreciated you greeting us and for the thoughtful wine and biscotti. Above and beyond. Thank you for a special page in our book of memories. :)

This is an ideal location for visiting Bainbridge. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Lynwood Center, and an easy drive to downtown. The cottage itself is wonderful, with all the necessities provided. And quiet? It was incredibly peaceful. Vicki and Jim are fantastic hosts. I can't say enough nice about this place. Go and see for yourself - you'll be glad you did.

Victoria was such a great help with everything. It made our stay very easy. It was private, quiet and charming. The very short walk to the little town is along side a beach with an amazing view on a clear day.

Victoria's place was the perfect getaway. Victoria was a delightful host and everything was clean, comfortable and inviting. We loved meeting the goats so much and walking across the road with our sand chairs to sip some wine on a small, quiet beach where we could watch the boats go by and relax. We will be back!

Great option for couples who want to explore options outside of urban Seattle area. Place is quiet and comfortable with easy access to ferry. Also good jump off point to explore Olympic National Park as you are only short drive to Port Angeles area from Bainbridge Island. Hosts Vicki and Jim are wonderful and cottage is spacious and comfy including A/C, Direct TV and coffee/cookies and a bottle of wine!

This is a great Airbnb and I recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet location close to the beach and to the shops and restaurants of Pleasant Beach. The separate building that comprises the Airbnb had everything we needed and more including restaurant menus, trail maps, plush bedding and towels, and fresh cookies. I thought we might hear the goats, but we didn't hear a thing......just the quiet of this pastoral setting. Victoria and Jim were terrific hosts and we hope to stay at their Airbnb again soon.

My husband and I have lived aboard and captained a sailing catamaran for many years in South Florida and the Bahamas. We have lived on Bainbridge Island since 2005. After living aboard our boat here we decided to change from sailors to farmers and purchased our 3 acre property in 2009 after living on Bainbridge since 2005. We love the community and our neighborhood, plus the ability to take a ferry and be in downtown Seattle in about 30 minutes. This is truly the best of both worlds.
