Be a Keeper at the Pt. Robinson Light Station on Vashon Island
The island's own lighthouse station offers weekend and week-long stays in the two renovated keepers' quarters. The two residences share the beach with the lighthouse and other features of the historic light station. Both residences are available for weekly rental through the year and offer groups of up to six adults a wonderful way to enjoy the beach, the Sound and the islands of Vashon and Maury.
The Keepers' Quarters A at Point Robinson Light Station is a modest three bedroom, two-bath, two-story bungalow perched near the lighthouse on the shore of Puget Sound. It offers a wondrous porch looking out over the Sound and at Mount Rainier.

Why Eric Wyatt chose Vashon Island
Point Robinson - what a special gift this property is to the people of Vashon. There are not a lot of places in the world where you can witness whales breaching an arm length away, giant ships steaming by in the night or watch Great Blue Herons fish in front of a lighthouse. So, on behalf of our Island and the Vashon Park District, welcome to Point Robinson Lighthouse. You're going to love it.

Too Beautiful to Sleep!
When you drive up to the place, you can't help but say "Wow!" The setting is stunning. The two Keeper's Quarters are located right above the driftwood-strewn beach where small waves lap, eagles and ospreys soar, seals pop their heads up and sea lions can be heard barking. The homes are surrounded by a lovely, lush, green lawn bordered by a fence and lilacs and other flowers. Add to this the dazzling view of Mount Rainier and you truly have a paradise.
We stayed in Quarters A and the minute I walked in and saw the sturdy but nice dining room set with a sideboard and china cabinet in the dining room, moved on to the large and well-appointed kitchen and couldn't wait to walk through the cozy family room to see what was upstairs, I knew I had found something special.
My daughter and grandsons were with me. The boys enjoyed their cozy room with twin beds and my daughter and I each had an upstairs room with a comfy queen bed. The upstairs bathroom has a tub and the downstairs one has a shower. From my bedroom, I was able to watch the seals, eagles, tugboats, log booms, freighters, tide changes, sunrises, moonrises, Mt Rainier and the lights of Kent and Federal Way (I think). I love the chug-chug and the lights of the tugs and the speed of the freighters. I love it so much, I kept watching the ever-changing view from my window and hardly slept!
The place was clean and has every kitchen item you could possibly need. Many in triplicate. Bring napkins, food storage bags and seasonings other than salt and pepper.
The front porch is the perfect place to sit in a rocking chair and watch the ever-changing view and the people go by. Many of them ask questions about renting the Quarters. It was easy to recommend such an amazing and cozy place. I can't wait to go back!
Much of the guest info needs upgrading and I hope they do it soon to make it easier for guests. There was nowhere to find the wifi password, the recycling bins were not where they were supposed to be and there were multiple copies of instructions and information from many different years. It was easy to get current info by emailing or calling the property manager. He responded very quickly and courteously.
Vashon is a small, friendly, rural oasis only a short ferry ride from Seattle or Tacoma. The Vashon Thriftway has everything you need and more. There are not a lot of restaurants, but the ones I've been to are very good.
Quarters A. Was clean when we got there. Kitchen was equip with all needed utensils.
We completely enjoyed ourselves.
Quiet, cozy, and a spectacular expanse of water at our doorstep.
We loved our weekend in this house! We cooked in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen, worked puzzles, made art, and slept soundly. The rocky beach and water view offered endless interest.
Peaceful, comfortable and clean
I hope not too many people know about this home. It will make it more difficult to schedule the next time I return.
Seashells, Snow and Sunrises
Absolutely magical stay on Vashon Island. Thank you for providing a cozy seaside getaway.
Beautiful stay at the Lighthouse Keeper's Quarters
We very much enjoyed our stay at Keeper's Quarters. The house was warm and filled with very comfortable furniture that also added to the ambiance of being in this 100 year old home. It was delightful to sit on the porch and listen to the water that was so close during high tide that we felt like we were on a boat! It was wonderful place to relax and enjoy our time with our son and daughter-in-law. We made good use of the chess board, going for walks, cooking in the well stocked kitchen, and sleeping well to the sound of the water and wind. We had a very cozy weekend and highly recommend to others. Our daughter-in-law loves light houses so this was extra delightful for all of us. I hadn't thought of staying at a light house before and it was quite charming to do so!
The Keepers' Quarters are located adjacent to Point Robinson Lighthouse.
