We had a great stay at Ben & Deb's place! It was clean and a beautiful setting on the island. Close to the ferry and downtown - walking was easy to shops and restaurants. Our 6yo loved the trampoline, but we didn't get a chance to try out the hot tub. Lovely house and Ben and Deb…
Pleasant place in quiet neighborhood. Sparsely furnished, which is probably good for a family with kids. Be advised (as the hosts do point out clearly) that there are no closets available to guests. Our group of three found this rather inconvenient. Nice kitchen, well equipp…
Response from Ben & Deb:
Thanks for the review Beth. It was a pleasure hosting you guys. Yes, we are clear in our listing that this is our primary residence and therefore do have the closets locked, but because of this inconvenience we have conveniently located hooks and coat hangers throughout the house for guest use. If a guest is bringing a suitcase of items that need to be hung ours may not be the best suited vacation home.
Ben and Deb were wonderful hosts! Very easy to get a hold of and quick on responses. The house is located close to everything and such a cute place. We were traveling with a 4 year old and an infant and Deb provided a pack and play for the baby and had plastic dishes out for our…
This is a true hideaway on a great island. If that's what you';re looking for, this is really great. Winslow has everything you'd expect in an up-scale suburban small town, including a Whole-Foods like supermarket, a sense of small-town, and great food. Relaxing yes, visiting Sea…

Thanks for the great review Jim! It was a pleasure hosting you guys. For any potential guests reading his note about ferry wait times. I just wanted to clarify that the ferry to Seattle does run every hour just not exactly on the hour. You can check the schedule for any given day on the WA State Ferry website so you time your ferries just right and don't have to wait. Sometimes in the height of the summer on a Friday evening coming from Seattle or a Sunday evening leaving Bainbridge there can be a wait to get a car over, but if you are walking on there is never a wait.
We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at Ben and Deb's cottage. Our extended family also rented out the studio, which was great for proximity, while allowing some privacy. The family friendly amenities keep us coming back, in particular the hot tub and trampoline!
