Bufflehead Beach Cottage is located on Vashon Island—the heart of Puget Sound—where rural lifestyles and natural wonders coexist a short ferry ride from urban pleasures in Seattle and Tacoma. Our cottage is located on Shawnee Beach--one of Vashon’s most pleasant shores--and a traditional Native American harvesting and camping beach, rich in wildlife and views of the Sound and Mt. Rainier. County bus lines connect with downtown Seattle (foot or car ferries) and SeaTac Int’l. Airport.
Our beachfront home has an intimate contact with the water at high tide—hear the waves from the great room and feel the spray on the porch during winter storms; and low tide brings miles of beachcombing! The gently sloping shore is an invitation to swim, paddle, fly kites, send the kids out with pails and shovels…Kayaks and paddleboards can be rented at nearby Jensen Pt.; and fishing, clamming, and crabbing are possible in season.
Vashon Island hosts a vibrant arts & crafts community and over 15 restaurants and cafes. Our major stores (and restaurants) are 5 miles away (“uptown”), though we have an excellent espresso shop (NY Times 2012) and a old-timey grocery store within walking distance (quaint little town of Burton). Bicycling and walking on both roads and the Island’s extensive nature trails, bird-watching (Quartermaster Harbor is an Audubon hot spot), antique and second-hand stores, artist studios and galleries, cinema and local live theater, live music “uptown”, and abundant farmstands, --can fill your days when you tear yourself away from a comfy beach-front seat on our porch. Neighborhood walks on quiet back roads, or along the shorefront road to Burton, round out your vacation days.
Our freshly renovated cottage has three exterior porches, flower gardens, and a beautiful brick walk past heirloom apple trees. A cozy private bedroom with a hand-crafted queen-size bed and (the very best) sleeper sofa in the living room can sleep up to 4 persons. The kitchen is fully equipped for family dining. We have flatscreen cable tv, broadband wi-fi and a collection of movies on dvd. The library is stocked with nature guides, and a broad selection of literature and popular fiction. The light-drenched great room has a wood-stove and double French doors overlooking the beach—only 30 feet away.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
