Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island, WA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
