WARNING: GPS WILL TRY TO TAKE YOU THE "BACK" WAY, which doesn't really exist. If it's taking you anyplace other than the intersection of New Brooklyn and Holly Farm Road, it's lost. Now for the eval: If you are looking for a romantic, plush getaway in the countryside, this isn't it. This is a working farm owned and run by a feisty retiree fighting to keep her organic farm, one of a vanishing few on the island. If you like being around such people (I do), then this is your place. You'll learn a lot about the island and its issues, and you might get to meet the llamas, geese, ducks and chickens she raises. You will definitely enjoy her breakfasts, which are not 5-star but quite delicious. She was even able to accommodate our need for gluten-free alternatives very nicely. Breakfast is in the kitchen around a table with the other guests, which offers an opportunity to compare notes on the area. Unfortunately, we weren't there on a Saturday to attend the Farmer's Market, but it would definitely be on the agenda otherwise. SUMMARY: It's more like staying on Granny's farm than a romantic getaway. Set your expectations accordingly and it will be a relaxing, enjoyable stay.

Had a fabulous time celebrating my friend's birthday here (Nan Bainbridge). Beautiful setting, Our host Patti was an absolute joy & the gourmet souffle, bread, & fruit breakfast was the best to be had. Would stay here again in a heartbeat..

My Husband and I stayed in the cottage in August. We were met by a very friendly hostess and owner. We loved the cottage, and made use of the hot tub in main lodge and also made use of our own bonfire in front of our cottage. Our cottage was simple but incl all the things we needed. NO Tv or Stereo, but that didnt bother us at all. The breakfast was wonderful!! THe grounds were kept up nicely. We are looking forward to staying there again soon, and feel that we found a gem in Brainbridge!

June 25,2011 Worst experience I've ever had. The house is dark and cold and needs updating and a few lights to read by with more than a 40watt bulb.Carpets look like it's been months since the last vacuum was used. ..maybe that explains the poor lighting. Hostess was absent when I arrived at 2:30 to check in and at 5:30 when I returned she was still absent with a note on the door directing me to a room that was a bathroom.I returned for the 3rd time at 7:00pm to finally have the hostess show me my room. (She explained that she was in a hurray and left the wrong instructions). The next morning I got myself up at 7:45 because there was a note posted that breakfast would be at 8am ...silly me. When I went into the kitchen nothing was happening and the hostess explained that that was because it was Sunday and breakfast was at 9:00am. I made my own cup of tea for breakfast with hot tap water at the sink.This women has evidently never learned how to make tea in a tea pot or how to be a hostess.

We stayed in the cottage and used the fire pit. The view from the sitting room window was serene. Patti was a delightful hostess and a gourmet breakfast was served in a tranquil setting. I would love to stay there again when I visit.

Our stay was fantastic! We stayed in the private cottage which was separate from the main house, although we were the only guests there. It was charming and comfortable. The farm was relaxing and refreshing and hearing Patti's daily farm challenges was quite fun. Her breakfasts were delicious, accompanied by great stories. We definitely recommend this charming farm for your stay on Bainbridge Island.

We went the first week of december, mid week and had the place to ourselves. Very quiet, very dark once night falls. Very peaceful. The breakfasts were excellent. Not much to do in Bainbridge itself, but be sure to go to Cafe Nola for dinner. Great food.

Stayed a night with my girlfriend in summer 2008. The owner, Patti, runs this place on her own and is one of the more charming, but down-to-earth women I have ever met. Great cook, and very welcoming but unintrusive. The downstairs suite is more private than the rooms in the house, but not very exciting (in terms of decor). Would be great for a traveling family with kids, however. Upstairs rooms looked beautiful. The location is well removed and very quiet. Overall, a very relaxing time and an unbeatable deal.
