We moved to Vashon in 1997 after relocating to the NW and falling in love with Vashon. We feel so lucky to live somewhere so peaceful, with so much to offer and with the added benefit of all Seattle has to offer only 15 minutes away. We love to share the magic of the Island with people.
Mary purchased this cottage in 1997
Our Charming Mother-In-Law Cottage is only a 15 minute Ferry ride from West Seattle but a world away from the day to day stresses of life. Come relax on our peaceful property. The Cottage is full of charm and comfortable places to lounge. Lay in the hammock or watch the chickens in the yard. Take a walk around the block and see deer as well as views of the Seattle skyline and the Ferry making its crossing.
Feel like something more adventurous? There is tons of hiking, biking, and sites to see. Take a tour of the artists studios, the wineries, or just explore all the shops in downtown Vashon. Come home after a day on the go to your own little paradise. You can cook your own meal after shopping at one of the many local organic farms (or Farmers Market if its the weekend) or if you would rather, dine at one of the restaurants in town its only a 7 minute drive away.
We are 2 blocks from the Ferry that takes you to Seattle.
We are located on the bus line.
While the Cottage is completely self contained with its own driveway and entrances we live on the property as well.
Thank you! We enjoyed your cabin. It was clean, comfortable, quiet (except rooster) & convenient We will keep your info for future trips.
A beautiful setting, complete with a visit from a doe and spotted fawn. The cottage was sparkling clean. While obviously old, the fixtures and appliances were new. I especially enjoyed the front room windows, letting in light as well as a nice view of the yard and trees. Mary was very gracious and accommodating.
I lived on Vashon for 22 years, and decided to book this Mother-In-Law cottage so I could have a base on the island and be able to enjoy some of the island's beauty in the late evening and morning. This cottage was perfect. It is set on the property so that you can totally enjoy the space and quiet- and yet incredibly close to the North end ferry dock. It is clean, furnished very comfortable and has a lovely kitchen. I would recommend it to people who want to experience Vashon for a quiet get away! Thank you Mary for a comfortable, enjoyable stay!

Plenty of hot water in the shower, consistently excellent reception for wifi and everything you need in the kitchen to be at home. Even had another round of clean towels mid week. I couldn't have asked for a better place to call home for a week on Vashon island.
Thank you Mary and Linda.
Perfect getaway spot. Easy drive from the ferry, and minutes away from restaurants and shopping. The cottage and grounds were so peaceful and welcoming, we did not want to leave. Whether you like bopping around the island to see the sites, or sitting back with a good book this is the place for you to stay. We will definitely be back, and our sending our parents there for their anniversary. Thank you, for such a wonderful stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this sweet little cottage on Vashon while attending our son's wedding on the Island. Perfect for our family of three (Adults) and a friend visiting from Northern WA. We couldn't have asked for more. Our host was very accommodating by quickly responding to all of our questions and having everything in place before our arrival. The ferry schedule, popular eateries, and general local amenities were thoughtfully printed out for us in advance. Everything we could possible need was available to us. Clean, peaceful and artistically decorated, we fell in love with this little gem immediately. I would like very much to return to this beautiful island and to this very special cottage.
