- Phone, email and address confirmed
- Hosted a verified guest
This luxury tipi is the perfect rental for a vacation on Bainbridge Island in Washington and can sleep up to two guests. The tipi is very cozy and inviting, outfitted with a comfy queen-size bed, log rocking chairs, occasional tables, reading lamps, warm robes, and slippers. Guests should bring layers, since evenings and most early mornings are cool, and summer days can be warm! There is a fan for warm summer days, but there is no heat in the tipi. Outdoor furniture is provided just outside the tipi and down by the pond, and the fire pit is stocked with wood for evening or morning fires (except when there is a city-wide burn ban in effect).
The tipi has a small refrigerator, closed containers to store food, and an outdoor fireplace but there are no cooking or kitchen facilities. Guests are welcome to bring food to eat on site, and many local restaurants and the two grocery stores on the island offer prepared food. The booking fee includes a continental breakfast of granola, yogurt, and jams that are all made on site. This is accompanied by French press coffee or tea, freshly picked farm berries, and fresh juice.
There is a charming bath hut in the trees, approximately 20 steps from the tipi, which is private and enclosed on three sides; the fourth side looks out into the woods. It houses a composting toilet, and hot water for showers and washing up. The hosts provide eco-friendly, handmade biodegradable soap, shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer, along with luxurious hand loomed organic cotton towels brought back from a trip to Turkey.

The property is a small working farm with berries, fruit, herbs and flowers; the owners have a commercial kitchen where they make jams, seasonings, caramel sauce, cocoa mixes, cocktail enhancements, handmade soap, and natural skin care products for sale. There are also chickens and two Jack Russell terriers on site. Guests are invited to tour the grounds and the studio while staying at Sweetlife Farm.
There is taxi service that meets every ferry, as well as Uber. There is a bus stop a mile from the property. Most shopping and restaurants are downtown, three and a half miles from the property, and other places worth exploring may make bringing a car more convenient, depending upon the type of experience desired (many folks don't leave once they arrive, except for hikes and bicycle rides and going out for food). Bike and kayak rentals are available downtown, within walking distance from the ferry.

This glamping site is a perfect retreat away from it all. The tipi sits near a pond and is snuggled next to the woods in the middle of Bainbridge Island on a 10-acre property adjacent to the Grand Forest, which is a woodland preserve that boasts miles of hiking trails. The island spans 11 miles and is four miles wide, and can easily be accessed from Seattle. Guests will find themselves just over three miles from the picturesque downtown, where there are shops, a historical museum, a regional art museum, fine dining, and the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry terminal.

- Bird watching
This island boasts plenty of exciting activities for guests to enjoy. Bainbridge is home to a local distillery, a local brewery, and a number of local wineries. The Bloedel Reserve, Battlepoint Park, Fort Ward Park and Fay Bainbridge Park offer spectacular places to play, hike, and enjoy the natural beauty of Bainbridge Island. Cyclists of moderate ability, due to the hilly terrain, flock to Bainbridge Island and Kitsap County for an ideal, picturesque place to ride. For guests hoping to enjoy a more leisurely stay, a relaxed stroll followed by a picnic is the perfect way to spend the day.
