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 Puget Sound South

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.

In season: Pick Blueberries and Raspberries

What a wonderful find!

  • 5 of 5

A friend from high school days and I were looking for a place to relax and catch up with one another. We sat on lounge chairs and watched the evening sun over the bay while the tide came in. When it got too cold, we fired up the hot tub and talked away the evening!

Blueberry Cottage is well-appointed, clean, and utterly welcoming. I would come again in a second!

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a night at the beginning of May. Updated, clean, beautiful and private. The house has everything you need and more (I even borrowed a pair of flip flops they left by the door!) The inlet water was very tranquil, we saw several harbor seals while out kayaking. We had dinner outside under the beautiful gazebo on the patio and watched the ospreys dive for fish.

Gem in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

A drive through the woods leads to this humble, small cottage located right on the water, with a great view of the Olympic Mountains.That view is best enjoyed from the hot tub in warm comfort. The fully equipped kitchen is available for fine dining on the beach. Or, elegant meals are available following a scenic drive to Alderbrook Resort.

Beautiful, relaxing, wonderful views!

We really enjoyed our stay at the blueberry cottage. The cottage itself is immaculate, cozy, and has everything you need. The setting is beautiful right on the water. We really enjoyed the hot Tub too. We look forward to returning perhaps this summer.
