About Alma Tramill

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.

Alma Tramill purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Alma Tramill chose Vaughn

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

What makes this cottage unique

Use the small Dock - launch for your own boat/kayak, or the public launch across the bay.

Available to use: (2) 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.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely perfect! We were lucky to have a break in the weather so we got The Kayaks out on Saturday. All you need to bring his food for the cabin is equipped with anything and everything you could possibly need. It's my fiance's birthday and Easter weekend and the owner left cinnamon rolls and a bouquet of flowers which was so sweet. The hot tub was probably my favorite thing and the View. I would suggest bringing yoga mats if you are interested in doing any type of stretch's or yoga Etc everything is Hardwood and this time of the year the grass is still wet. This truly is one of the best beach houses that I've stayed at. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with usđź’—

We loved the Blueberry Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best VRBO's we have ever stayed in. The property was so clean and had everything we needed! On our arrival there were yummy cinnamon rolls and fresh flowers on the counter. The hot tub was wonderful and my kids played for hours on the beach at low tide. The property is perfect for couples or small family. It is cozy but did not feel cramped. We will be back!

Quaint Retreat at the perfect price.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a perfect slice of heaven. The hot tub, views and nature setting, paired with the cozy abode was exactly what my friend and I were desiring in our retreat. It is quiet, clean, pretty private and has all the wonderful finishing touches that make a person feel comfortable. Alma thought of everything. We prepared our meals at the cottage and the kitchen was stocked with all the helpful pots, pans, and amenities that I would have at home. It was easy to tell that Alma put the extra love into this place, and staying there was truly nourishing. Thank you!
