These Bainbridge Island Restaurants Will Need Your Support This Summer

If you live in the Seattle area, odds are you’ve heard of at least some of our acclaimed Bainbridge Island restaurants.  Bainbridge Island has consistently been considered a top destination for foodies in the Puget Sound area, thanks to big-name restaurants like Brendan McGill’s Hitchcock Restaurant, chef Greg Atkinson’s Marché, and newcomer Ba Sa.

You’ve always been able to count on a great meal from Bainbridge Island. And now, after being largely shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, these restaurants are going to need your help now, more than ever before. And truly, there are more great restaurants than you can try in a single day, so make sure you plan in a few overnight stays when it’s safe to do so.

Our lodging properties are located all over the island, including downtown Winslow. Browse through our great offerings, and when it’s safe to travel again, come stay with us for a few days on Bainbridge Island. Continue reading

An extended clan of Orcinus orca known as the Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKWs) socialize and forage in inland waters of Washington and British Columbia. The SRKWs form tight family bonds and offspring remain with their mothers their entire lives. They are intelligent, extremely social and undeniably charismatic, but unfortunately they are also very much at risk. Listed as endangered in 2005 their population has been slow to recover and their numbers are now at an all time low. Certified marine naturalist Susan Marie Andersson has watched this wonderful iconic mammal from the shores of Bainbridge Island and will be talking about why they are in danger and what needs to be done to help them recover so that they are here for our future generations to experience. Admission: $3 suggested donation
