Only a 35-minute ferry ride away from Seattle, the Bainbridge Island community wows residents and visitors alike with its stunning mountain views, gently rolling hills, and smalltown America feel.

In 2005, the island was named by CNN/Money and Money Magazine as the second best place to live in the United States. It was recognized again in 2011, earning the top spot in a nationwide study of the best island enclaves by TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

With gourmet food shops, a vibrant artisan community, and an impressive selection of local wineries, it’s no surprise that Bainbridge Island continues to be a favorite hamlet for those seeking luxury and a low-key island lifestyle.
