          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: Ron Bailey and Cathy Sutherland are long-time residents of the rainy city of Seattle. Cathy is the founding member and choreographer of several aerial trapeze acts and has taught gymnastics for many years. Ron is a master builder, craftsman, musician, band-leader, and along with Cathy, the force behind Seattle's Moisture Festival, a annual month long celebration of Variety Arts featuring acts from all over the world. Cathy and Ron have been entertaining audiences for years in Europe and the Northwest. .

          Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island:
          We have close family and friends living on Vashon Island and we love going there to visit them. When this 1920's cabin came up for sale, with its ideal location, we could see the potential and just had to buy it. It needed a lot of love and care and a lot of ivy removed. As the work advanced we knew we had a real Vashon Island treasure.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The peaceful location combined with watching the variety of boats passing by relaxed us in a way we hadn't felt in a long time. Immediately we felt that we were on vacation You are surrounded by the beauty of the Puget Sound just sitting in the living room or making a meal. My husband fell in love with the little house and brought me to see it. He fixed it up with the love he brings to all the houses he works on making it a special place to be.
