About the Property

Farmhouse, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-14)

Lavender Hill Farm is well known on Vashon Island for our U-Cut lavender stand and farm store, open from late June through early August. The property has 1500 lavender plants and more than 15 varieties, as well as beautiful gardens and stunning views. Come vacation in this tranquil setting in a 1930's farmhouse, thoughtfully updated and spacious enough for a reunion of friends and family. The long farmhouse porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee overlooking the gardens, fields, Quartermaster Harbor and Mount Rainier. Listen to the bees as you stroll through the fields and wander into the town of Burton, just a five minute walk, for supplies, coffee, and some browsing or a meal on the deck of the Quartermaster Inn. Inner and Outer Quartermaster Harbor is a short walk.

The house is light and bright, with nicely appointed guestrooms and three bathrooms for guests. The kitchen works for a crowd, with two ovens, a large center island, 6 burner cook top and large pantry - and there's a second fridge in the basement. The living room has two seating areas, there are two tables in the dining room and the long porch table seats twelve.

Enjoy the stars at night, the quiet, and spend your days biking, riding horses, kayaking or just finishing a book or writing one (wireless internet throughout the house). The island has a movie theatre, movie rental (and you've got cable as well) and many concerts, performances and gatherings to keep you as active as you like.

Please visit our website for more photos and more info - see you in the lavender!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Tom works as the head of a labor union local in Northern California and Cathy is an actor who also runs a non-profit providing education in Cambodia, where we adopted our two younger daughters. We also have a grown daughter and son. Tom is also a writer of slang books - we live in Berkeley, California during the school year and hope to retire to Vashon eventually. We have learned a lot about lavender in ten years and love our time on Vashon.

Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island, WA, USA:
I've been visiting Vashon since 1994, when good friends moved here from Los Angeles. It's a very special place. Tom and I bought a small cottage in 2003 and fell in love with the lavender farm when we came to pick lavender. In 2006, we were lucky enough to buy it. We kept the previous owners' tradition of opening a U-Cut stand and farm store and have learned a lot about lavender. For three years, we participated in the lavender farm tour, a wonderful weekend with 2500 visitors coming to enjoy the lavender. Each year we run our lavender farm business from mid-June through July, with the rest of the year available for vacation rentals. We love our time on Vashon.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
What do I love most about Lavender Hill Farm? The view is amazing - Mt. Rainier, the boats in the harbor, the lavender. We think of it as Maine and Provence rolled into one, with snow-capped mountains as a bonus. It's quiet and the stars shine bright. I love working with the lavender - very relaxing. The house is big - it's so cheerful and so many places to curl up with a book. There's room for a lot of guests and the porch is the perfect gathering place! I soak in the claw foot tub in the master bedroom and then sink into the king-size bed. Truly a vacation from our lives in the Bay Area - and no traffic! It's also so easy to get here. The airport is a 20 minute cab ride or 30 minute bus ride to the ferry, and the island bus comes to our corner (and sometimes right past the house). The island has good restaurants, an arts scene, pools, and lots of opportunities for biking and hiking.
