Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: This property was owned by our family back in the 1800's bought from William Vaughn himself and sold - (1979). We were able to purchase it back in 2011, 32 years later. Our love for this place is so strong, we wanted to share with others the same opportunities we felt.

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor:
The Blueberry cottage (Vaughn Bay) A place where freedom is felt and loved. Watching the magical sunsets, never one duplicated! Free roaming wildlife to watch and share with. The beach is filled with its own life. At low tide watch as the clams bask in the warmth of the sand - a song of their own. The small crabs find refuge under the rocks. With tides high or low it's a world of enchantment, hours of fun and relaxing

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Use the small Dock - launch for your own boat/kayak, or the public launch across the bay. Available to use: (2) new Costco kayaks, row boat, paddle boat, 4 person float fun Island and water slide (in season) Shopping and fine Dining: 10 minutes away, Maritime Gig Harbor offers waterfront shopping. The Blueberry Cottage: offers easy access to the Olympic peninsula, Olympic National Park and Hood canal. It is nearby Belfair - Shelton known for it's ATV trails and nature preserve. In season: Pick Blueberries and Raspberries
