Located in the center of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Bainbridge Island, is just a 35 minute ferry ride away from Seattle offering unlimited employment opportunities. Bainbridge Island is home to nearly 24,000 people and stretches 5 miles wide and 10 miles long. It is a charming, self-contained community, meeting and exceeding the day-to-day needs of its residents and visitors. It is a wonderful combination of farms, wineries, hiking trails, scenic vistas, and local arts.
Island residents are committed to preserving the sense of community and green spaces- agricultural land, forests, parks, and trails.
Residents cherish the natural beauty of the island, the stately firs and cedars, scenic bays dotted with small boats and views of the Seattle skyline at night, snow-capped Olympic Mountains to the west and majestic Mount Rainier to the east.
Bainbridge Island schools are among the top in the state and have been nationally ranked making it a sought out place for families to raise their children. The Bainbridge Island Public School System prides itself on small schools and small class sizes. Visit the Bainbridge Island School District web site for more information.
Winslow, the towns center, is full of charm offering a variety of restaurants, bakeries, museums, galleries, and retail stores. The simple streetscape retains small town character and a sense of place.
