About the property

*Please note the change in rates and capacity during the off season: Nov.1st thru March 31- Rates, 150.00-200.00 max capacity two people. We close our bunk house in the winter, we will consider up to four people but that would mean renters bring an air mattress and sleep in the living room,this could work well for people with small children.* Fish from the deck at high tide! Two charming cabins at the water's edge in beautiful Tramp Harbor on Vashon Island. Beautiful south facing Sound and Mountain views . Main cabin has eat-in kitchen, living room, bedroom that sleeps two and bathroom with shower. Secondary cabin is a bunk room that sleeps 4 to 6 with a half bath. Large deck area with jacuzzi, fire pit and built in picnic table.

About Lanette McDonnell

A little bit about us..... These cabins have been in our family close to 100 years. They are the only buildings that remain from a logging operation that was on the island. Crazy story, but our great-great grandfather actually won them in a poker game! We are going on five generations that have enjoyed them. Many memories have been made here and due to busy lives we find we can't enjoy them as much as we use to(though we go over there whenever we can!). Therefore, rather than let them sit empty on beautiful summer days we decided to open them up for rent so others can enjoy them and create memories of their own.......

Rest and relax in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

The beach cabin has all the history and wonderful location to make our weekend with good friends just right. Tide comes in. Tide goes out. Blazing fire in the fire pit. We'll be back.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place to stay. Rustic but has everything you need. Great place to relax. Lovely views, great little hot tub and a nice beach for a walk. We would definately recommend the Beach Cabins at the Water's Edge.

Delightfully Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

I had such a great experience staying here. I went for my first alone vacation with my dog. I went to the market once when I arrived and camped out happily for four days. When high tide came up to the deck, it was just one more treat! Lanette the owner was quick to respond to me before and during my trip. She made it feel like I was staying at a friend's cabin, everything was easy. It rained a lot while I was there but there is a covered portion of the deck which is perfect. In a hat sweater and blanket, I read outside watching the rain fall on the waves.

The house is near a busy stop sign but traffic died off around dinner and we were alone. There is beach on both sides to let the dog swim and hunt for shells.

I really enjoyed my time and am trying to figure out when I can go again that won't feel too soon for my husband and four year old!!

July birthday stay!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately beyond my doing I had to cancel my planned trip to this beach cabin, this summer. But I want it known how understanding and kind the owner was to me, she also promptly refunded what I had paid and wished me well.

This will lead me back one day to rent and experience her beach cabin on the water, maybe on another birthday!

Thank-you so much!

Rustic cabin in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in the blue beach cabins. Anyone who is there for the view and relaxation will grow to appreciate the rustic qualities.. Loved the deck and the small hot tub was a wonderful way to wind down for the evening. All of the modern amenities are there in the kitchen, and sat tv / internet is also available if you can't cut off from the world entirely. A quick 10 min drive into town also.
