It is managed by two sisters, one who lives in Oregon and one in Seattle who along with their brother look forward to their children enjoying this property with their children!

The views are unbeatable; the house is comfortable but a bit dated.

  • 4 of 5

The island itself is one of our favorite places to date. The location of the home and views it offered were unmatched by any of the other rentals our family had.

The only downside is that the home is a bit dated. Some minor things did not work well, but having kids in the home was easier knowing we didn't have to watch them like Hawks.

Because they allow pets, there was quite a bit of dog hair throughout the home. We have some allergies, so that was a bit tough, but we managed just fine. Otherwise the home is comfortable, offers everything you would expect (and more!), and was incredibly comfortable for 5 adults and 3 kids.

I have NO doubt we will be back on the island SOON!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the view as much as we do. Sorry you experienced allergy issues. Our cleaning staff carefully vacuum the whole house after each guest. It is a comfortable space for relaxing and enjoying friends and family. My tip to you and anyone in the future is to let your host know right away if something isn't working so they can remedy it! Happy Travels

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were at Jake's Retreat for 4 nights in late July, and couldn't have been happier with this property. My husband and I took our two adult daughters, our son-in-law and 3 grandchildren here to spend time on Bainbridge Island and visit my sister and brother-in-law, who live on the island. The 3 children stayed in the room with the 2 bunkbeds, my husband and I slept in the Master, my daughter and son-in-law stayed in the double room, and my other daughter slept in the media room. The double bed that my daughter and son-in-law was in was a bit small for 2 tall adults, but for 4 nights it was manageable. The other surprise was that the media room didn't have a door, so my daughter didn't have any privacy. But again, for 4 nights, it was fine. Everything else about the house was perfect!! The house was very clean, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything imaginable you'd need to cook with, the hot tub on the deck was great, the games and puzzles were a nice addition, but most importantly, the view from the house every morning, afternoon and evening was unforgettable. The photos posted on the website do not do this property justice. I would highly recommend this home and hope to go back to enjoy it again.

Owner's Response: We were happy to have you. The view is truly one of a kind and we are so happy to share it! Sorry about the media room door surprise, I thought we had put that in our listing but if not I will do that. Thanks for the feedback.

Beautiful view, great house

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend there with a group of friends. We cooked meals in the kitchen and on the grill, sat in the hot tub, socialized on the deck, and slept well in the comfy beds. The view is great and the location is ideal. I highly recommend this property!

Great Retreat

This rental was a wonderful experience. The home was as advertised, clean, and so comfortable! It was great to find a home so prepared for our dog to come as well. Anne was great to work with, I would definitely come back. Thanks!

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 Nearest Train : Amtrack King Street Station Seattle at 15 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!
