Bayview Retreat offers the perfect location for your next vacation or weekend getaway. Its central Puget Sound location is easily accessible from Seattle, Tacoma, the Kitsap Peninsula and SEATAC International airport.

This private water view retreat is a great place to unwind and relax after exploring the many splendors of Vashon Island and affords you the opportunity for day trips to Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park and Mount Saint Helens. You could choose a sterile hotel or you can experience the charm and whimsical character of this picturesque property. The sunny southwest-facing 1.62 acre site has abundant wildlife, mature landscaping, many flowers, an organic garden and a large lawn for family games and outdoor events. It's a comfortable place to stay any time of the year.

Available year-round, Bayview Retrreat was opened in the spring of 2009. The immaculately maintained three story lodge offers 3500 square feet of living space and a 1620 square feet wrap-around deck. (790 square feet covered) Four bedrooms and loft are configured to sleep 14 guests in beds (4 top floor, 4 main floor, 6 lower level.) Additional sleeping options are available with a maximum capacity of 18 guests. The spacious great room has twenty-two foot ceilings, a river rock gas fire place and comfy leather furniture. There's plenty of space for entertaining in and outdoors.

The lodge is located right on the loop of the highly-sought after Burton Peninsula. It's a popular spot for islanders who enjoy walking, jogging and socializing as they make their way around the 1.4 mile roadway. Prime beaches and a 67 acre park with woodland hiking trails are less than two blocks to the west. A waterfront park, boat launch and kayak/canoe rentals are four blocks to the east. The historical waterfront town of Burton is four blocks to the west. At Burton, you'll find a marina, a country store, fire station, a popular espresso stand, marina, antique store, post office, church and many other unique island businesses. Just a few minutes by car north is the village of Vashon. There you'll find great restaurants, an art deco movie theatre, two supermarkets, a Saturday farmer's market and endless shopping opportunities. One guest wrote:

'It's one of the few places you'll find where you can watch bald eagles, deer and hummingbirds year-round from a private hot tub.'


This light and airy lodge has:

• 22 foot soaring ceilings

• Four large view bedrooms (sleeps 14 in beds on 3 levels (4 upper, 4 main, 6 lower). There's a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the loft. (max 18 guests allowed including children)

• Two large and conveniently placed bathrooms (easy access and they are separate from the bedrooms so anyone can use them)

• Water view great room with river rock natural gas fireplace (has comfy leather furniture and seats up to 10 - 12 and water view dining area for 10 - 12)

I'm currently not taking reservations for weddings, dinner parties or similar events. Sorry no keg parties.

Parking is limited to three cars in the driveway due to fire codes. Additional parking is available to the west of the driveway on Bayview Drive for up to 10 cars.

Great location: A Big Toys playground structure was added in the lower yard in 2011. It is suitable for children ages 5 - 12.

This beautiful log home sits on a peninsula known as the Burton Loop. At Jensen Point, you will find a public boat launch, picnic area, kayak rentals, and a rowing club facility. Feel like a hike? Burton Acres Park has 67 acres of woods and trails. The main corner of Burton is located about 4 blocks away, a casual 10 minute walk. Here you will find a country store, post office, church, fire station, antique store, flower stand, service station, b & lodgings, Metro Bus stop and various other businesses. Burton is rather centrally located on our island with easy access to the Tacoma or Seattle ferries.

                  Vashon Island, Washington, United States

                  Nestled in the 'Heart of the Sound' with views of water or mountains at every corner, Vashon is truly an Island. It can only be reached by a breathtakingly beautiful ferry ride. There is something magical about being on an island, the pace is slower, the people friendlier, the attitudes relaxed and our patchwork of pastoral and natural settings make it a refreshing Northwest getaway.

                  With 51 miles of shoreline, Vashon Island boasts the majority of waterfront property in King County. The Island is approximately 13 miles long and 8 miles at the widest point with a year-round population of about 11,000. Whether you are looking for a quiet, romantic place to relax or activities for you and the entire family, Vashon has it all! Quaint shops to visit, an eclectic mix of restaurants, local galleries, historical sites, musical concerts, places to hike, bike and enjoy outdoor activities.

                  Bayview Retreat is located on the highly-desired Burton Peninsula of Vashon Island. Nestled between Vashon and Maury islands the Burton Peninsula offers scenic vistas from every point. The lodge is centrally located with easy access to the Tacoma (10 minute drive south) or Seattle ferries (20 minute drive north). A few blocks to the east is Jensen Point. You will find a public boat launch, picnic area, kayak rentals, and a rowing club facility. If up feel like a hike Burton Acres Park (67 acres of woods and trails) is located across the street. The Burton Peninsula, also known as the Burton Loop (1.25 miles around) is a popular place for joggers, casual walkers and energetic pet owners.

                  The town of Burton sits (just a few blocks west) at the isthmus between Inner and Outer Quartermaster Harbor. It is a historic waterfront residential area. Today you will find a country store, coffee stand, post office, church, fire station, art gallery, restaurant, bed & breakfast lodgings, public marina, a lavender farm and various other businesses.

                  A 10 minute drive north of Burton is the village of Vashon. There you'll find more art galleries, great restaurants, an art deco movie theater, antique shops, grocery stores, banks, a quilting supply store and many other unique island businesses. There is a Saturday farmers market and lots of seasonal activities.

                  Seattle, Mt. Rainier National Park, Mt. St. Helens, and the Olympic National Park are all easy day trips from Vashon.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: I've been living on Vashon Island for the last 23 years. In 2000 I completed building Bayview Retreat. I'm a semi-retired advertising art director. Things I enjoy since moving here include: salmon fishing, boating, gardening, mushroom hunting, beach combing, painting watercolors and traveling.

                  Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island:
                  Bayview Retreat is located on the sunny southwest side of the Burton Peninsula, a very desirable location on Vashon Island. Besides the great Quartmaster Harbor views - there's a tremendous amount of wildlife.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  The property is 1.62 acres and very private. There are great sunsets and you can sit on the deck and watch the boats coming and going out of the harbor. Bald eagles, osprey, hummingbirds and deer are frequent visitors. Central location Bayview Retreat is located on the highly-desired Burton Peninsula of Vashon Island. The lodge is centrally located with easy access to the Tacoma (10 minute drive south) or Seattle ferries (20 minute drive north). A few blocks to the east is Jensen Point. You will find a public boat launch, picnic area, kayak rentals, and a rowing club facility. If up feel like a hike Burton Acres Park (67 acres of woods and trails) is located across the street. The Burton Peninsula, also known as the Burton Loop (1.25 miles around) is a popular place for joggers, casual walkers and energetic pet owners. The town of Burton sits (just a few blocks west) at the isthmus between Inner and Outer Quartermaster Harbor. It is a historic waterfront residential area. The town was named in 1892 by Mrs. Miles Hatch after her home town in Illinois. In that year development began in Burton with the Vashon College and the Burton Store. Burton businesses at that time included tourism, logging, shingle manufacturing, fishing and brick making. Today you will find a country store, coffee stand, post office, church, fire station, art gallery, restaurant, bed & breakfast lodgings, public marina, a lavender farm and various other businesses. A 10 minute drive north of Burton is the village of Vashon. There you'll find more art galleries, great restaurants, an art deco movie theater, antique shops, grocery stores, banks, a quilting supply store and many other unique island businesses. There is a Saturday farmers market and lots of seasonal activities.
