We look forward to welcoming our fully Covid 19 vaccinated guests to our quaint, cozy, self contained cottage! The cottage is nestled in the secluded oasis of our backyard. We live in a lovely neighborhood, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Enjoy strolling through our garden, sitting on the deck in front of a little wood burning fire pit, soaking in the private hot tub and just relaxing~

The space
Our guests continue to compliment us for creating such a lovely sanctuary in our backyard~ The cottage is decorated in a Moroccan motif, influenced by our 3 years of living and teaching in Morocco. There is a built in corner desk, perfect for guests who need space to work. Tranquility abounds. The peaceful sound of the waterfall, and lushness of our spring and summer gardens will please you. There is a queen size memory foam bed/pillows that guests LOVE, along with our large cedar shower. For your convenience, you will find a Nespresso maker/creamer, toaster oven, single burner cooking unit, small fridge, dishes and utensils. Our gas BBQ is also available for your use. We provide a bottle of complimentary Washington wine, fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels and cream cheese for your first night stay. There is excellent WIFI connection. Also for your comfort, there is a Bluetooth speaker for your use. Just plug in your iPhone!
The HOT TUB is divine! Comfy fleece robes, slippers are in the cottage for you. We are a mile from the ferry and within walking distance to town and services. We are also on the bus line. This is a terrific location! Many guests choose to walk to town.
Having lived and taught on Bainbridge for over 28 years, Carl and I would love to help orient you to the island and plan your visit.
Book your stay and come see for yourselves!

We LOVE being AIRBNB hosts, welcoming people to our lovely island lifestyle. My husband, Carl, and I are retired Bainbridge Island teachers. I retired from elementary school teaching in June 2014, after 40 years in the classroom. Carl's career also spanned 40 years in both elementary and middle school classrooms. We LOVE to travel! The HIGHLIGHT travel/living experience for us was teaching at the Rabat American School in Morocco from 2008-2012. We have returned 3 times since we left! We love the people, the culture, the diversity of the environment. We have 4 sons. Andrew lives in Poland, (with our 8 year old grandson, Andy, whose mom is Polish) Alex lives in Bali, Tom(wife/Amy/1 year old grandson, Liam) live in Akron, Ohio and finally, Ben, lives close by in Seattle. They all live very interesting and fulfilling lives. Carl enjoys his busy life as a local woodworker. I enjoy my volunteer work at our local food bank as well as supporting refugee causes. I also run an after school enrichment club for 4 kids once week that I find richly rewarding and...FUN! We love to meet new people, sharing our collective life experiences. We know you will enjoy staying in our cottage so give us a call and come see for yourselves.
