About the property

Be a Keeper at the Pt. Robinson Light Station on Vashon Island

Vashon Park District offers amazing stays in the two renovated keepers' quarters at Point Robinson Lighthouse. The two residences share the beach with the lighthouse and several out buildings. Both residences are available for vacation rental through the year, offering you a wonderful way to enjoy the beach, the Sound and Vashon Island.

Quarters B is a two-bedroom, one bath, completely furnished unit with a full kitchen and sitting parlor. This house is restored to capture much of its 1919 historical condition. It can accommodate to four- six people.

The sunny kitchen in Quarters B evokes a time of homemade biscuits and slow Sunday breakfasts.

The sitting room boasts period furnishings and contemporary comfort.

This Quarter is perched near the lighthouse on the shore of Puget Sound. It offers a wondrous porch looking out over the Sound and at Mount Rainier.

Quarters B is part of a duplex comprising half of the downstairs and the entire upper floor of the house. It's next door to our caretakers, Jake and Julia, who live at the property with their two children.

Why Eric Wyatt chose Puget Sound North

Vashon Park District's Point Robinson Park is 10.0 acre shoreline park and historical and marine conservancy located on the east shore of Maury Island off Point Robinson Road overlooking East Passage. The site has provided fog and lighthouse service for vessels since 1885. The lighthouse has been fully automated since 1978. *Vashon Park District owns the upland part of the park; the remainder is on long term lease from the Coast Guard.

The property conserves an extensive sandy beach shoreline that wraps around the point, a saltwater marsh, and upland woodlands. Walking trails and a few picnic tables have been developed along the scenic shoreline providing dramatic views of East Passage, Tacoma, and Mount Rainier, and through the upper wooded slopes.

Pt. Robinson Stewards have fully restored the two Keepers' Quarters on the property for use as rentals. All proceeds from these rentals goes back into the park's restoration and maintenance.

What makes this house unique

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.

Adorable house, amazing views

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed for a couple days in December. We loved the view, the quiet location, and the comfy beds. The only downside was that the heating system was a little noisy.

Peaceful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

I live in Sun City Arizona, and while I love my desert home, the summers can be a challenge. This year, after another intense summer season, my son, his wife and I decided to spend a couple of weeks in the Pacific Northwest to experience, for a time, a different climate and a different lifestyle. Fortunately, we chose to book several days at Point Robinson on Vashone Island, WA. We were looking for some grey, chilly days, and some cool, crisp evenings....and maybe a few rain storms thrown in for good measure. We were NOT DISAPPOINTED!!! The weather was PERFECT!! A breath of fresh air for us tenacious desert dwellers!!! Our accommodations at Point Robinson were beyond our expectations. We felt completely at home in our fully furnished cottage, and were impressed by the care that was obviously taken to insure that guests are made to feel welcome. The trips we made into the quaint little island town did much to restore our perspective after a long, hot summer in our very warm state. The townspeople we met were kind and helpful, going out of their way to let us know how much they appreciated our visit. We took home many, many pictures of our stay at Point Robinson, along with memories of a "get-away" that will last us a lifetime. If you're looking for a "get-away", a place to recuperate from a busy, hectic lifestyle, we can recommend no better place than the beauty, and peace of Point Robinson.

Very positive

  • 4 of 5

Hi Eric, We recently stayed at Quarters B at the lighthouse. My only concern, apart from not having found all three keys, was the danger inherent in having the fire extinguisher so loose at the top of the stairs. I thought it might be an attractive nuisance to children.

Beautiful

We had an absolutely amazing time at Vashon. The house was incredibly maintained and preserved. We enjoyed the beach and forest and watching the ocean and all its goings on. Was a wonderful experience.
