Beach House in Historic Port Madison w/Dock & Hot Tub!
Bainbridge Island Puget Sound

Beautiful place inside and out!

  • 4 of 5
We had 9 guests stay two nights and couldn't have been happier. The kitchen had all the amenities one would need for cooking any meal of the day. Certain bedrooms are definitely better than others, be sure to take note of the room with the two bunk beds when reserving. We did, but I think it still surprised some, ha! The hot tub was clean and worked great, the two bathrooms were also clean and nice. The pictures make the place seem more out dated than it is. The neighborhood was quiet and great for morning jogs/walks along the water.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a nice stay! Yes we are very clear that part of that 10 sleeping count includes two sets of bunk beds so people are not thinking couples. Sounds like we need to update pictures as much has been done to the house to update over the past two years. And isn't it spectacular to wake up to that amazing view every morning! Hope you can join us again.

Wonderful vacation home, wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 women spent our 30th annual "women's weekend" at the beach house in Pt. Madison for the second year in a row. It is in a lovely location overlooking historic Pt Madison and house takes advantage of the view from the hillside it sits on. The house accommodates our group well with ample sleeping accommodations, good layout and space for our gathering. The kitchen has more than enough of the basics for a group who likes to cook together, The beach is close and good walks can be had through the neighborhood. The house is very clean and well maintained, and quite comfortable, even in the dead of winter. Ann, the owner-manager, is great to work with, very responsive and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this vacation property.

The pictures do not do the property justice!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for a week during our son's wedding and it was perfect.
The pictures do not adequately describe the beauty of the property.
The floor to ceiling windows on one side of the house all look out over Port Madison..the rooms and view are spectacular.
Everything is furnished..we did hunt for plates for 2 days...they are in a drawer under the knives.
The house is very kid friendly. We did not have kids but is would have been perfect for them..even special plates and glasses. Thanks Phyllis

Beautiful, comfortable, low-maintenance-- perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I had five of my friends from around the country come to Seattle to celebrate my 40th birthday. We wanted a place that was close to the city for transportation, but secluded and woodsy/watery feeling. This was ideal! A quick drive from the ferry, we went out to a great restaurant one night (Marche) and cooked the rest of the time. The kitchen is very well equipped, the instructions for check in/check out were very clear, we were all happy and comfortable the whole time. Thank you!

perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
I rented the cabin for a girls weekend getaway. The cabin had everything we needed and the location ideal; halfway between Bainbridge and Poulsbo. There were 10 of us and we all had plenty of room and really enjoyed the big kitchen and living room. The view is amazing! The pictures don't do it justice!

Great Local Rental!

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented this house while our house on the island was under repair. The owners were very prompt in responding to my requests and the rental process could not have gone any better. The house itself was equipped with everything one would need for a short or long stay and we found it to have plenty of room to accommodate our active family. The location is very convenient to the island's amenities and also has an amazing view of Port Madison and the Olympic Mountains. Definitely would recommend a stay here especially since the owner's were so easy to work with!

From the Owner

Jake's Retreat was the original owner's little piece of heaven for over 55 years. It has been passed down to his kids who are keeping if for their children to enjoy. The original house was build in 1910 and has undergone three major additions/remodels that have tripled the size of the little cabin that Jake bought with his young bride in 1956.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : SeaTac International at 30 Miles Nearest Ferry : 15 minutes at 10 Miles Car: necessary

Bainbridge Island is a wonderful getaway only 35 minutes by ferry but worlds away. The town of Winslow has lovely restaurants, shops, groceries, and all services in a small town feel. The Olympic Penninsula is only a 30 minute drive northwest of the Hood Canal bridge where you can enjoy hiking, cross country skiiing, sightseeing, ocean beaches, and golf. If you choose to stay close and tour the Island take advantage of its quaint Island ambiance. If you want big city excitement Seattle is a scenic 35 minute ferry ride away where you can take advantage of all a big pacific rim city has to offer and then come back to your quiet spot on the Island as the end of the day!
