Come Shop, Play and Stay!

View our lodging special here

As the crisp cool air of Autumn makes way for the bite of Winter and the holiday season, Bainbridge Island has some fun activities in store for everyone, from the littlest lads to the young at heart and everyone in between.  Putting candy and wilting jack-o-lanterns aside means making room for cornucopia, wreaths, and candles.  It also means it’s time to shop for others during the holiday season.  Just in time for the season, participating merchants on Bainbridge Island are offering a drawing for five $500 shopping sprees as well as a wonderful child’s gift.  Just fill out an entry form at any one of the participating merchant locations by December 19 and you could be one of the lucky winners! Here is a link to the program. Continue reading

Holiday Artisan Shopping Guide 2018

Shop Hand Crafted Bainbridge for the Holidays!  Gather a carload and shop all over the island…

Unique gifts thoughtfully selected telegraph the value of personal connections, and the holidays are a common time to reaffirm sentiments of love, compassion and care. Bainbridge Island gets into the spirit of Christmas. Downtown is a bustling festive hub of activity; merchants dress up their displays with sparkle and pizazz, Santa comes to town, and the giant star on top of downtown’s tallest tree shines brightly for the winter solstice. Islanders take pride in shopping locally, and greet one other on the streets as they make the rounds of the local businesses. Continue reading

Local Dining at Hey Day Farm

heydayfarm6One of the many wonderful things about Bainbridge Island is the community. Hey Day Farm has successfully captured the spirit of community on Bainbridge Island by hosting Community Dinners on Tuesday nights at their farm located at 4370 Old Mill Road NE. On a recent Tuesday evening, I attended this Community Dinner with my husband. We parked our car and arrived to the scents and sights of a blooming garden with the Inn at the Farm in the background where Tadao Mitsui was preparing the dinner in the kitchen of the Farmhouse. No reservations are taken at the Community Dinners which are offered year-round from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Continue reading

2018 Oktoberfest on Bainbridge Island

Oktoberfest 2018 Bainbridge Island, WA Beer GardenOktoberfest is a tradition that started over 200 years ago when Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12th October 1810. Everyone in Munich was invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event.

“Glamping” on Bainbridge Island!

A new overnight treasure is tucked away on the northeast end of Bainbridge Island in our own little Fay Bainbridge Park. Two darling cabins are nestled in the woods a short little trail hike from the beach. These cabins are pet and family friendly but would lend themselves to a romantic “glamp” by the beach as well. This is a perfect spot to set-up base for an island adventure of hiking, beach combing,   wine tasting, or just exploring this amazing island. Especially lovely are the private front viewing porches with sturdy but comfortable Adirondack chairs. Leave the city lights and noise behind, relax in the woods, hike the beach and watch the wildlife but sleep in a warm cozy cabin. “Glamping” at it’s best! Continue reading
