Inn at Vineyard Lane
Reviewed April 30, 2012

In an era of amenities and customer service this inn takes a contrian approach. Things like a coffee maker, ice, or even a channel guide on the somewhat unmanageable TV are not available. The room was adequate. It is conveniently located in an apartment complex adjacent to the main highway, so it does have a store nearby for the less self-sufficient traveler. We happened to stay when the caretaker was not available, so we were offered cerial - no milk, yogurt, and juice. I thought the bare-bones model should be priced accordingly, but others may find this approach desirable. Happy travels.....

We drive up from Oregon every fall for our anniversary and always enjoy our stay at the Inn at Vineyard Lane. Cherie is a wonderful chef and hostess and her attention to detail is unparalleled. The room is always immaculate, comfortable, and inviting, and the little "sweet treats" and bottle of wine she leaves in the room for us is a welcome gift for our special occasion. I honestly can't say enough about how amazing it is to stay here year after year!

We took a quick little break from the business and drove over to Bainbridge to do some Christmas shopping and check out some of their eateries. We booked two nights at the Inn at Vineyard Lane. It was dark when we arrived, though only about 4:15pm. We followed the instructions emailed to us with the directions on parking and getting into the room. We stayed in the Birch room which is an upper level condo. We had a tough time finding the correct building, as there is very minimal signage and what's there is overgrown by shrubs. We meandered through the complex, finally locating the correct building and proceeded to get inside. The porch light was out, so I had to dig for my phone which has a flashlight app. That saved us. Finally we were able to gain entrance and the room is very nicely furnished, is spacious and comfortable. There is a gas fireplace which heats the room quickly, and a nice little touch was the individual desserts that were left in the refer for us. The remote control for the tv was out; needed batteries. I mentioned it to our host at breakfast the next morning and she immediately brought me batteries. The service is minimal but if you need something, the response is very good. I would recommend it for its comfort and convenience. Breakfast was decent though it's not as good as most of the B&B's we've visited. I think that if we find ourselves wanting to stay at Bainbridge in the future, we'll return. Now that we know how to get in!

Room Tip: We like the Birch. It has an additional window that lets in more natural light.

This inn is close to town and a nice surprise. The complex is a beautiful northwest modern style in earthy colors. There are townhouses and condos built around an outstanding perennial and conifer garden that includes a naturalized water feature. We were visiting Bainbridge to tour the gardens at the Bloedel Reserve and this place set the tone. Inside our room was a book of portraits and profiles of local residents which gave a sense of place to this special island. Comfortable and clean with a delicious breakfast - this inn is a good value.

We had a wonderful time touring the peninsula from this beautiful retreat. The room was very comfortable, spacious, and had everything we needed, and we enjoyed the breakfasts. The room was kept up-to-date and modern, the bed was amazing, and when the innkeeper heard we were celebrating our 20th anniversary she left us a bottle of local wine.

It's a pretty easy walk to town from the "Inn", though a little bit uphill on the return. We walked to the ferry and spent the day in Seattle, and down to town for shopping, with no problems.

As others mentioned, this set-up is a bit different from most; it's not really either a hotel or a traditional B&B; you rarely see the other guests. But it works very well if you are looking for peace and quiet. It's four rooms in condo association, with use of the clubhouse, right outside the rooms, for breakfast, fireplace, games, or reading. The condos had very pretty landscaping with flowers, little waterfalls, and a friendly duck.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting my sister who lives on Bainbridge. The beds at this inn are some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. This inn is a bit unique as it was built for people in the condos to be able to rent when their families were visiting. However, they also rent them to people. Cherie (sp?) who is the innkeeper is incredibly hospitable and a great cook.

I have stayed in other places on Bainbridge and would recommend this above them. It is very quiet and peaceful.
