Overview

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.

Beautiful views and the best location.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the lighthouse tour given by Captain Joe. Eric and Mo the manager and caretaker took good care of us and made great recommendations. We paddle boarded with dolphins and seals that were hanging out in front of our cottage. I would recommend this place to just a couple looking for a getaway or a family that likes to explore. A great place to enjoy nature.

Most awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay so we were excited to come back. We rented both houses for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the entire property with outdoor games, bbqs, mornings and evenings taking in the amazing view of the sound and Mt. Rainier. The houses are both so comfortable and have everything we needed inside and out. We were able to completely relax and enjoy our family. We also enjoyed the many great restaurants, shops and hiking trials Vashon has to offer. Can't wait to rent in the fall to see the Orcas.
