Once a tiny community of 3,000 residents, Bainbridge Island has now grown into a bustling town that includes plenty of senior housing options.
Whether you love your home and want to stay in the area, or are ready to escape the noise and traffic on the mainland, Bainbridge Island is a popular retirement destination. In fact, the area now hosts more than 100 different elder housing and care options, including special facilities for memory care and skilled nursing.

Our advisors love Bainbridge Island for its rich indigenous and nautical histories, and the fact that it offers the best of both worlds: the natural beauty and fresh air that come with being an island, but with easy ferry access to Seattle–it’s only about 35 minutes away. Not that you’ll have to leave often: the island has everything from shopping to cultural events like parades and a Friday night Art walk downtown.

The observatory houses a 27.5-inch reflector telescope and host stargazing events regularly.
