Artists Studio B&B

A Bainbridge Island Retreat, Bainbridge Island, Washington, USA

Information and reservations:

Light, open, and inviting space with sweeping Puget Sound views. Fully furnished and available for rent. Natural light from abundant windows maximize the view, while wall space tastefully showcases original art from local artists. Steps away from Fay Bainbridge Park, a beachcomber's delight. Explore the island or relax in the sun on your own private deck. On a rainy day snuggle up by the fire with a good book.

The "Artist Retreat" option includes art lessons -- in oil or watercolor.

"Artist Studio B&B" in the Bainbridge Island Chamber Of Commerce October 2010 Newsletter:

"Claudia McKinstry, a long time Bainbridge Island resident, artist and teacher, has added a new slant to the already creative environment of the McKinstry properties; a lovely retreat called the “Artist Studio B&B.” This studio is a beautiful, light-filled studio apartment that has been turned into a bed and breakfast.

"Surrounded by lavish gardens and a sweeping view of the Puget Sound shipping lanes, guests are invited to relax, refresh and restore in an artful environment. A light breakfast of locally made granola, fruit and yogurt and the fresh eggs of onsite hens is made available for guests to eat at their leisure. Walks on the beach, or sightseeing on beautiful Bainbridge Island, may be all that is needed to complete a restful time out.

"Claudia is planning to offer packages with studio instruction in drawing, watercolor and oil painting in the two unique art studios on the property for guests with extended bookings."
