Car: Necessary

Walk along the beach of beautiful Paradise Cove, or bicycle, kayak, hike, read, bird-watch, fish, play boardgames, drink Vashon made beer or wines, relax and breathe easy. Featured repeatedly in Sunset Magazine and New York Times online, this is a creative community of farmers, writers, artists, entrepreneurs and Seattle commuters. Small, intimate Vashon Island, the original home of K2 skis, and SBC coffee, remains an outdoor and coffee lovers paradise. Ride a bike and sip coffee/eat ice cream at Minglement Roasterie or Cafe Luna, visit Wings Bird Seed Co. for information about birding, bring your kayak and circumnavigate the island! Attend our local opera or First Friday art tour. Make an appointment at Wolftown, a wolf rescue facility. Experience the magic of a quiet, intimate, laid back friendly island life. The island is about 12 miles long by 8 miles wide. Your Vashon adventure begins with a ferry ride (cars and cycles) from West Seattle (Faunleroy Ferry Dock, 20 minutes to Vashon), Tacoma (Point Defiance, 15 minutes), or the Olympic Penninsula (South Worth, 10 minutes) with views of other islands as well as the Cascade and Olympic Mountains. A Passenger Only ('the PO boat') to and from Vashon provides a 35 minute crossing to downtown Seattle for Seattle sightseeing on foot, during the weekdays. Visit famous Pike Place Market, SAM art museum, Pioneer Square, Experience Music Project (EMP) and the Space Needle. Your host owns Cinnamon Works at Pike Place so put in an order for our gluten free or regular sweets and find them waiting in your beach house! Ask for a tour of our sheep farm as well, particularly interesting to children during lambing season. Public transportation is available on island, yet a car is preferable due to limited hours of operation.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I moved to Vashon from New York City, was Director of Nursing of the local Care Center, adopted from China and married the owner of Pike Place Market Cinnamon Works, four years ago. We also have a small sheep farm on the island. I am an outdoor enthusiast, a botanical artist and love Vashon Island.

Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island:
We love having a small getaway on the beach. We live elsewhere and balance our time between the sheep farm, work at the care center, and raising Gracie. The sunsets at the end of the day from the 'Airie' provide the perfect ending for a beautiful, rich day.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
i love walking down the path from Bates Walk, waving hello to my neighbors, smelling the nasturtium that drapes down the walls of our beach house and being greeted by an eagle overhead or an otter in the water. Throwing in a fishing line from the bulkhead and catching several pink salmon 'on the fly' with Gracie last year was outrageous. A quick trip to the BBQ with our veggies from our farm or market; life doesn't get better.
