About Mary

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

Why Mary chose Vashon Island

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best family vacation .... Our family of 4 was traveling from Los Angeles to visit family in the Northwest. The cottage was perfect for relaxing in the backyard and enabled us to cook our own food in the kitchen. It was hard for me to find reasonable accommodations with a full kitchen. We enjoyed every moment and found the cottage well stocked with towels, blankets, etc.... The kitchen gear covered all my needs. I suggested to Mary one item that their kitchen could benefit from and she promptly went out to get it. It was so nice to be away from the noise from the city, enjoy the deer and enjoy the quiet. We will be coming back for sure.

Perfect quaint island getaway

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed the cottage and full kitchen amenities. Plenty of towels too! Watching deer right outside the door was delightful. We were surprised how private it felt considering it was attached to the main house. We didn’t hear or see Mary or Linda. That being said they were available by text to answer questions. We plan on staying here again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Family time in a charming little cottage with a delightful host. Even a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge!

Only complaint was not enough time to enjoy it. Next time will stay longer.

Thank you Mary!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage! The owners are very helpful and friendly. The cottage itself is very clean and comfortable. We slept great. We enjoyed the kitchen - just supplied the food. We took several walks both from the cottage and near the beach. The scenery is incredible. You can see the ocean through the trees from the private driveway . Saw several deer. The town has a great grocery store but also several charming shops and restaurants. We had a great lunch . One day we took the ferry which is not to far from the cottage into Seattle. We can't wait to go again! Thanks Mary and Linda!

Enjoyed peaceful beauty from a sweet cottage

  • 4 of 5

Mary and Linda have created a clean and comfortable cottage attached to their home on Vashon. Very convenient for the ferry and yet secluded enough to be in the countryside. Vashon has lots to explore and good restaurants just 15 minutes from the cottage.

Lovely, conveniently located home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the vashon cottage. It was incredibly convenient (right off the ferry) and had all of the amenities we were looking for. Although it's connected to the owner's home, it felt private. The rooster definitely wakes you up at 4am sharp, so utilize the ear plugs provided!
