Thank You For Visiting Destination Bainbridge

The coronavirus pandemic is affecting all overnight lodging on Bainbridge Island. We look forward to the day when we can welcome you to this beautiful destination with a handshake or a friendly Island hug!

The governor of Washington State has issued a Stay Home Stay Healthy order, discouraging residents from leaving their homes, except to conduct essential business, through May 4.

During this unsettling time, we understand some people need to travel to Bainbridge Island to take care of family members or to conduct essential business. The proclamation identifies lodging as an essential business and our larger Inns and Hotels on the Island are open for business. Vacation rentals are available on a case-by-case basis.

Lodging owners are working hard to ensure overnight guests are comfortable in a clean, healthy environment. In addition to enhanced cleaning and sanitizing, our hosts have enhanced staff training, implemented easier check-in procedures and room quarantines. Online ordering, take-out, and curbside delivery food service are available from many local restaurants and wineries. Grocery stores, gas stations, pharmacies, and some essential retailers are also open.

Most hosts have modified cancellation and refund policies. If you need to change your reservations please contact your host directly to reschedule your visit or to request a refund.

If you are planning to attend an event or visit a favorite Island attraction, most parks, wineries, and restaurants are temporarily closed, except for takeout. We invite you to visit BainbridgeCurrents to learn what events have been canceled or rescheduled, and the Bainbridge Island Downtown Association to learn what businesses are currently open in a more limited capacity. Also, travel to our Island may be difficult, with limited flights to the Seattle area and reduced ferry service to our Island.

Please visit our Find Lodging and Promotions pages for specific details about availability and links to the accommodations currently providing overnight service. We wish you continued good health and safety, and we look forward to once again welcoming you to Bainbridge Island in the near future.
