Bainbridge Arts and Crafts

Current Exhibits at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art

There are so many wonderful reasons to visit Bainbridge Island. While things like the natural beauty and charm of this small town draw people in, great attractions like the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art keep them here.

Bainbridge Island has consistently been ranked as one of the top getaway destinations in the state of Washington. It’s easy to reach via the Washington State Ferry system from downtown Seattle but feels as though it’s miles away. Whether you’re here to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, want to get out and experience nature in the Pacific Northwest, want to spend some time shopping and dining out, or just want some romantic one-on-one time, you’ll see that Bainbridge Island is an ideal place for all of that and more.

Downtown Winslow has undergone dramatic changes in recent years, with a number of new restaurants, shops, wineries, and other venues opening up. The most notable addition to Winslow Way has been the construction of a new state-of-the-art Bainbridge Island Museum of Art facility.  Come visit us this winter, and enjoy the current exhibits before they change.  To get started, simply find and make your reservation at one of our many unique and luxurious lodging properties on Bainbridge Island.
