Vashon Island house description

Sojourn House is a one level 1550 square foot house with a large back yard with patio. Well built in 1958, it has high ceilings, hardwood floors, and two bathrooms. We've renovated the kitchen, and it is stocked with all the dishes, glasses, cooking pots and utensils you could want. Hand-made vintage Persian rugs are throughout the house. There is original art on the walls, some interesting antique furniture and luxurious bed linens.

The living area has two comfy sofas, a fireplace, a reading chair, cable tv, and a semi-antique Persian Sarouk carpet.

The dining table adjusts to seat four to eight. A Persian Sarouk carpet which matches the living area carpet finishes the room.

Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, and two bedrooms have pairs of twin beds..There's another four-person table off the kitchen. The large backyard with patio is 80 feet by 120 feet.

We now offer free Wi-Fi!

Imagine an island the size of Manhattan, but with only 10,000 residents. Imagine 250 miles of paved road with only three four-way stops, and no other traffic lights. Don't expect souvenir shops or glitz. Vashon Island is 'upscale rural' with a large arts community. Live music in several venues every week-end. A difficult nine-hole private golf course. Four excellent restaurants.

Our only 'chain' eatery is a Subway Sandwich Shop. No shopping malls. You can get here by ferry, private boat or small plane. But there are no taxis or car rentals. No hotels or motels. Great views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. The beach is about two miles from the house. While sojourning on our Island, you may visit the lighthouse, go beachcombing, kayaking, fishing or diving.

You can bicycle our hilly roads, play golf, or walk one-third mile from the house to a restaurant or movie in the village. Enjoy Vashon Island Golf and Country Club guest privileges including swimming, dining, tennis, and golf. This is a great equestrian island, with lots of trails (horse rentals available).

Seattle and Tacoma are a 15 minute ferry ride away. There is also a 10 minute ferry to the Olympic Peninsula. Catch a metro bus into Seattle where the opera and theaters are world class. Tacoma's great Point Defiance Zoo is walking distance from the 'South End ' ferry landing.

Day trips are possible to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, the Olympic Mountains and Hurricane Ridge, and the Hoh Rain Forest. One family even went to Victoria, British Columbia on Vancouver Island in a day... but that is a pretty long day!

Please note that we do not charge a 'cleaning fee'.

                            We had a wonderful time on Vashon. Sojourner house provided a convenient location for all of our family to attend ours daughter's wedding at Triplebrook farm. The house easily accommodated 7 adults, was very clean and had all required kitchen appliances and conveniences. The short walk to Vashon town with its restaurants and shops was especially convenient for us as we didn't always have to make sure a car was available for guests at the house.

                            The Sojourn house was a great spot for our family to gather for a long weekend. The home is well maintained and all the amenities are covered. We were unable to connect to wireless internet with our computer however. The deck out back with a large yard provided a nice place to eat and relax while the kids played. We couldn't find a large pitcher to mix up powdered drinks but one was brought over the next day. An electric fry pan or something with higher edges would have been nice also. Cooking scrambled eggs for our group was a challenge. It was nice to be able to walk to town to check out the stores. This location also provided a nice location to be able to go geoducking at Point Robinson and fishing from the Tramp Harbor dock.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, girls getaway, tourists without a car.

                            Owner response: Wish we had been called about the internet problem. We weren't aware that the router had gone bad. It's been replaced, and the free WI-FI system is up and running again!

                            We were here for my son's graduation from University of Puget Sound. We found the house to be perfect for our family, with comfortable furniture and beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and a very helpful hostess in Gay. Only wish we could have stayed longer. The village with its charming little shops and restaurants is only a short walk away.

                            I stayed at Sojourn House for a month, and it truly was a wonderful "home away from home." The owners pay careful attention to detail and it shows. The house is beautifully furnished, the beds supremely comfortable, and the kitchen well-equipped. I especially enjoyed the cozy gas fireplace! It was nice to be able to stay in such a wonderful home, and so close to town too! I highly recommend Sojourn House.

                            Recommended for: People with disabilities, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, girls getaway, romantic getaway.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1993

                          About the owner: My husband, Neil, is a retired Boeing engineer, and I'm an antiques dealer. I had 'Owen's Antiques', an antiques shop on Vashon Island for 24 years, but now sell exclusively on the internet. We golf, and play duplicate bridge. We are theater and concert enthusiasts, and enjoy traveling in Europe. Neil skis, and has climbed Mt. Rainier twice. We lived in Teheran & Isphahan, Iran for 2 years. I sing in the 80 voice Vashon Chorale. I enjoy decorating and choosing the furniture, art and accessories at Sojourn House. Neil is active in Vashon's Rotary Club, and is on the board of the island Food Bank. He also helps coach the High School Golf Team.

                          Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island:
                          We live on Maury Island, which is connected to Vashon Island. We live in a 2-story house on acreage. We bought Sojourn House to be our down-sizing retirement home. Sojourn House is all on one level, which is a big plus! It is very centrally located near the small town of Vashon, so we'll be able to walk to the stores, and flag down the bus just across the street. Although the lawn is big, it's flat and much smaller than our current property.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Because we plan to live at Sojourn House someday, we are constantly upgrading and maintaining this attractive and well-built 1950's period 'ranch-style' house.
