We're considering a move from Portland to Bainbridge this fall and I'm wondering if the community will be a good fit. We're a down-to-earth, low-to-moderate income (particularly for the next two years while my husband is in grad school), attachment-parenting family of five (our kids are young - 6 months to 6 years). Bainbridge is our first choice in the Seattle area right now because we are ready to leave the city (but need to stay close for employment), have heard that the schools are great, and we'd love to live in a small community.

Are there any Bainbridge residents out there who could give me a general sense of what it's like to raise a family there?

Many, many thanks!

I don't live on bainbridge, but have many clients who do! sounds like you would fit right in! I think the ferry can be a hassle, but seems not to faze my clients, many who commute daily! kid friendly, small town feel, with many progressive families and all that the big city of seattle has to offer just a boat ride away!
