There’s an island in the middle of the Puget Sound that you simply must visit. Begin your journey with a short 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle’s Coleman Dock. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. Before you know it you’ll be pulling into the picturesque Eagle Harbor, ready to embark on a new adventure. Island charm isn’t just a catchphrase; it’s our reality. Bainbridge offers the perfect blend of rural, small town charm, an abundance of year-round recreation, and the big city amenities you crave.
From the moment your journey begins, you’ll enjoy picture perfect views. Like much of the Pacific Northwest, our island is bathed in natural beauty. On sunny days, the towering peaks of Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, and the rugged Olympic Mountains make frequent appearances. It’s the perfect place to spend a day, a week, or more. We aren’t just a rural island with pretty views, though. Bainbridge Island is home to seven artisanal wineries, a micro-brewery, an award-winning organic distillery, a vibrant and historic downtown, plenty of parks and green spaces, a world-class art museum, and exceptional restaurants.
There are several choices for lodging on the island, including Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, Hotels, and charming island vacation rentals. Some lodging is available within walking distance to downtown businesses and attractions, and others are situated around the Island. You can even choose to stay on the water if you so desire. Whatever it is you’re looking for, we have it. Come see what it’s like to live the charmed life on Bainbridge Island.
