Bainbridge Island’s charm, natural beauty, rural character and central location in the heart of Puget Sound make it a great place to live, work and play…for a day, a week or a lifetime!
Located 35 minutes by ferry from Seattle, the island enjoys a wonderful combination of farms, wineries, hiking trails, scenic vistas, and local arts. As you approach Bainbridge Island by ferry or bridge, glimpse the quiet harbors and homes along the rocky shoreline and the densely forested hills. This vibrant, diverse community, rich in history, culture, and natural beauty, is ready for you to explore.
With Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountain Range to the east, the Olympic Peninsula, backed by the Olympic Mountains to the west, and Mount Rainier looming to the southeast, Bainbridge Island features picture-perfect views and abundant recreational opportunities year-round.
The island is now home to seven artisan wineries, a brewery and an organic distillery. The vibrant village of Winslow, just a short walk from the ferry, features a number of restaurants and one-of-a-kind shops and a waterfront park. Each month of the year is packed with a full schedule of events and activities.
