About Kristin Sheets
Skiff Point Guest House was originally founded by Janice Parker. Jan's daughter; Kristin is the owner and hostess carrying on her mother's legacy. Kristin has been running the inn over the past several years now. This is a very special place to myself and my guests. I have had guests that have returned every year for the past many years which makes this a home away from home for many of my guests who have become dear friends. 'Come as strangers and leave as friends'. Following in my mother's footsteps I am carrying on her legacy..... I love making this a special place for my guests, giving them a wonderful place to stay and enjoy. I always leave little special touches for my guests including treats like dark chocolate, perhaps a bottle of wine for those that are staying for a week or more, fresh flowers, bath salts, and more... I want my guests to feel like they are really getting a treat and I love being an innkeeper. Your comfort is so important to me! My mother tastefully decorated the units with her gift of interior designing and a great eye for beauty! I had made some wonderful changes to the suites and am continuing to make upgrades to the units to make them more luxurious and inviting for everyone to enjoy. As your hostess I am happy to help you make your travel plans, personally talk to you about any questions you might have and provide all that I can to make your visit that much more special.
Kristin Sheets purchased this House in 1983
Why Kristin Sheets chose Bainbridge Island
Skiff Point Guest House is a special place to me as now its been passed down to my brother and I. This property made me want to leave California behind and stay here where it makes you feel at so much peace. Hearing the waves lap up on the shore and the Eagles soaring certainly make you melt into this beautiful home. The gardens and all the birds are wonderful to watch, even those occasional deer that want to eat the flowers and plenty of squirrels around too! I have to say the memories and all the guests that have come to stay year after year make it that much more special.
What makes this House unique
You will fall in love with this place since you get a bit of everything, a view of the water (breathtaking), and the views of Seattle, the ship traffic going by, a walk in the forest or take a trail walk down to the beach simply makes it all a treasure. What a great location too! Only a 5 minute drive to the ferry and be in downtown Seattle in 35 minutes.

Seattle / Island trip
It was very relaxing. Lots of restaurants and sights to take in. Many activities we didn’t have time for.
Kristen was a fantastic host and provided everything to make our stay comfortable.
Wonderful place to stay. Kristin really knows the area and is ready to share it with you no matter what your interest. Deck has an amazing view of Seattle. Thank you for sharing your home with us Kristin.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House, especially the view from the backyard overlooking the Sound. Comfortable and cozy accommodations. We ate in for breakfasts and a couple of dinners and the kitchen was well supplied with utensils, as well as coffee beans, and granola. Kristin is a lovely host and went out of her way to ensure we were comfy and had everything we needed during our stay. We also enjoyed quality time with the resident four-legged host, Yukon. Highly recommend!
Loved the guest house with the great roomy loft. The water views from the deck just lovely.
Enjoyed every minute of Bainbridge Island and the quaint Skiff point guest house. Thank you for your hospitality we had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The wood burning stove was a cozy addition. Bay hay and feed just a short walk has such character and most anything you might need.
Wonderful host, setting, and Home.
Charming, quiet and picturesque location for a Bainbridge Getaway!
Kristen couldn’t have been a more gracious and solicitous host. We received detailed descriptions of what we could expect of this VRBO before our arrival and then a wonderful welcome upon our arrival. The gardens are wonderful, the suite fully stocked with fluffy robes, thick towels and all the kitchen utensils needed for a vacation stay. Wonderfully located to the Rolling Bay shops for a quick take out dinner from Via Rosa when we were too tired (lazy) to cook for ourselves. We will be back!
There is much to do when you arrive on Bainbridge Island. A must see is Blodell Reserve which has beautiful trails of endless varieties of plants and trees. Pritchard park memorial and it's sandy beach. There are 3 museums to visit; The art museum, Kidi Museum and the Historic Museum. Come in July for the Lavender festival in Sequim or the Garden tour here on Bainbridge Island. Great farmers market every Saturday from 9am to 1pm. Take a days trip over to Seattle for whatever you desire, fine dining, a concert or visit the Space Needle or an underground tour of Pioneer Square. You can leave your car here on Bainbridge Island and walk on the ferry and be in downtown Seattle in 35 minutes! Visit Port Townsend for many activities like a cider or wine tours (there are several to visit). Plenty of galleries and shops as well as restaurants. You can go up to Port Angeles for a trip over to Canada and see the beautiful city of Victoria. There is the crab festival in Port Angeles in October too! So many things, so many places and all within a short distance and a short time you can see it all but you must give yourself enough time so make it a long visit if you can so you can do all the things you would like to do or just relax here at Skiff Point Guest House and enjoy the breezes that come up the bluff, read a book out on the deck and just relax!.
