Bainbridge Island Waterfront Rental: Rising Moon Beach House

If you’re looking for the quintessential Bainbridge Island vacation rental, go no further than the Rising Moon Beach House.

Perched on a bluff overlooking Puget Sound on Bainbridge Island’s Skiff Point, this luxury Bainbridge Island waterfront rental house boasts a hot tub and 200-degree views of downtown Seattle and majestic Mt. Rainier from virtually every room!

Spectacular in any season, The Rising Moon Beach House‘s crown jewel is the master suite, with panoramic views day and night from seven-foot windows. Connected to the suite is a private furnished deck (perfect for morning coffee), and a deep soaking tub in a tiled, slate-floored bathroom. Enjoy the ever-changing view from your windows and yard – cargo ships, Coast Guard cutters and tug boats heading into Elliott Bay.

Beyond the Rising Moon Beach House‘s master suite is a second bedroom that features designer linens in Asian motif. The living and dining areas include a gas fireplace and a huge deck with outdoor seating and a gas barbecue. A fully equipped kitchen, laundry room with new washer and dryer, a seasonal hot tub, and even a piano round out the living areas.

For the nature lover, night and day, wildlife abounds along Bainbridge Island’s Skiff Point. Birds from swallows and loons to osprey and bald eagles are regularly seen. The Rising Moon Beach House boasts a year-round population of iridescent throated hummingbirds that frequent the deck. Further afield, Orca and pilot whales, sea lions, seals, and otters frolic in Puget Sound.

The Rising Moon Beach House is located just three miles from the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry. It’s also an easy stroll to one of Bainbridge Island’s favorite walking beaches, to the historic Rolling Bay Café or the Island Music Center for an evening of jazz or bluegrass.

Where to Enjoy Gorgeous Views of Mt. Rainier

Locals know Wing Point, the north pillar of the entrance to Eagle Harbor, as the former home of a powerful former Senator from Washington State, Warren Magnuson.  The house on the tip of Wing Point still hugs the low the bluff in its prime location, facing the Sound, the Mountain, the sunrise, and the storms.

Inside Eagle Harbor, a stone’s throw from the senator’s former estate, the waterfront is lined with homes of current Bainbridge Island residents, including Abode on the Sea.  Abode on the Sea is an antiques-filled beach-front apartment, tucked in along the northern bank of Eagle Harbor, above the kayaks and seagrass.  With dinette and kitchen, fold-out sofa and queen bedroom, the cheery Abode on the Sea can accommodate a variety of family holiday options as well as longer-term stays.  In earlier days, the Harbor was alive with the clang of shipbuilding at Hall Brothers Shipyard, but now, Abode on the Sea is witness to local yachts and power boats and the hourly passage of the ferries — the island’s lifeline to nearby-by Seattle.

Just north of Wing Point on Bainbridge Island’s eastern shore is Yeomalt Point and the  Yeomalt Beach House.  Yeomalt Beach is Wing Point’s quieter neighbor, sitting in full view of the Cascade Mountains, the shipping lanes that bring goods from around the world to Seattle, and of the grain terminals that take Washington State wheat to far corners of the Pacific. The Yeomalt Beach House, a beautifully furnished 3-bedroom beach-front home, is perfect for the girls’ weekend, a writers’ group, or a place for the bride and her attendants to prepare for the grand event. Yeomalt Beach has an exquisite and expansive view of the Puget Sound from Mt. Baker to Mt. Rainier, and the contemporary atmosphere at Yeomalt Beach House lends itself to groups and multi-generational families — both practical and romantic at the same time.

If you choose Bainbridge Island as a destination after the clatter and clutter of the summer visitors have subsided, you cannot do better than late Autumn. The mid-Autumn weather lends itself to long beach walks into town, local fresh produce in a roast or salad, the art of local wine-makers and distillers, and sumptuous fires in the evening.  This is the season locals like to keep to themselves — the reward for patience, the light revealed, the Puget Sound at its best.

Enjoying Dusk on Puget Sound

What can be more beautiful than watching the low winter light on the Puget Sound? The exquisite gloaming that comes early this time of year just begs for us to stop, have a cup of tea or glass of wine and watch nature’s miracle.

The gradual shift from crisp illumination with a pink sunset tinge into a warm blue hazy scrim obscures imperfection and shrouds our differences with in dusk that reminds us we are in the Pacific Northwest. Observed, that view offers the peaceful thought that night shrouds our differences and within our space, light inside that serves as the campfire that becomes a place of security and communion.

Down a long winding country lane on Bainbridge Island’s eastern shore is Eagle’s Perch Guest Retreat. It’s spectacular view is hidden, revealed only as you walk into the great-room and kitchen. If you are lucky and “the mountain is out,” you will have a breathtaking view of Mt. Rainier. Turn to the left, and Mt. Baker, the next volcano north, shows its snow-cap above the Cascades. The property is aptly named as an eagle family nests to the left of the deck and scans the boating traffic on Sound from a tree on the right – offering us a hint of nature’s grace.  Eagle’s Perch Guest Retreat includes three bedrooms, a full kitchen and laundry, beautiful great-room for extended family visits to the island, for writing groups and class reunions. Space to gather and space to retreat.  For winter stalwarts and summer celebrants, the deck sports a large hot tub. A BBQ, plenty of seating, and the stunning view of the Cascade Mountains and the shipping lanes of the Puget Sound top off this lovely high-bank waterfront property.

For the more gregarious, Kellerman Creek reflects the warm nature of its hostess, Jean Kellerman. A complete catered breakfast from Jean’s dining room overlooking Puget Sound is the perfect way to get a great start on the day, and to get to know Bainbridge Island as well as Jean’s links to other islands where she has lived. A long-time resident of Hawaii, Jean’s studio guesthouse reflects that connection with gorgeous Hawaiian quilts, prints, and gracious ambiance. Kellerman Creek guesthouse is a perfect couple’s intimate get-away — warm, gracious, and welcoming.

Working our way south towards Winslow, Skiff Point Guesthouse and Retreat is one of the few properties that offers both accommodation and a separate meeting room. Skiff Point includes two guesthouses, each with a cozy loft bedroom, beautiful and thoughtful appointments, and stunning high-bank views of the Puget Sound. Sunsets on Mt. Baker will add golden light to the already golden atmosphere of Skiff Point Guesthouse and Retreat. Skiff Point’s meeting room is suitable for executive retreats and workshops, making the package offered at Skiff Point Guesthouse and Retreat unique among privately-owned and owner-operated accommodation on Bainbridge Island. Skiff Point is close enough to town for excursions and wine tasting, but far enough away to enjoy the intimacy of the shipping lane on Puget Sound view. What a perfect way to work through stress-inducing issues that executive retreats entail in a peace-inducing setting and after-work ambiance?

Feel the mantle of tranquility descend as you walk out on one of these the decks, a glass of exceptional wine from Bainbridge Island’s growing wine industry, and watch dusk descent on our little slice of Puget Sound. Welcome to Bainbridge Island.
