A Seattle View at Rockaway Beach, Bainbridge, WA

We spent a 4-day weekend on Bainbridge Island in mid-June 2010. Accommodations on the island are limited. This led me to look for alternatives. I came across Bainbridge Island Vacation Rentals. We looked at several offerings from them and chose "A Seattle View at Rockaway Beach."

The house faces due east on the southeast corner of the island directly on the Sound. Across the Sound is the Seattle skyline. It's less than 50 feet from the water. The Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry comes directly at the house before it turns north to Bainbridge harbor. Mt. Rainier is visible to the south just over the trees.

Seattle-Bainbridge Ferry, Seattle, WA

The quickest way to get to Bainbridge Island is to take the ferry across the Puget Sound. It's about a 35 minute ride and runs about once an hour. Their schedule is here.

Interestingly on a couple of the trips we had escorts as we crossed the Sound.
