About Susan or Emma

I'm semi-retired and enjoy photography and birdwatching. I've lived on the island for 28 years and wouldn't think of living anywhere else. I love to walk my dog on the many trails on the island as well as on the beach.

Susan or Emma purchased this Studio in 1987

Why Susan or Emma chose Vashon Island

I've always loved the woods. Always wanted to live in a forest or near a forest and this was what I was looking for. I'm a gardner and musician and love to travel around taking photos.

What makes this Studio unique

Forest setting but room for our animals. Private, serene, nature trails and star gazing.

                                                          We stayed for two nights in March and it was so quiet and serene for my husband and I. We really enjoyed the well appointed kitchen.

                                                          This was my second stay at Wren's Nest. I love the quiet and watching the birds and deer outside. It is very comfortable and convenient to all parts of the island. I'm sure I'll be staying there again next time I'm on Vashon. I highly recommend Wren's Nest for a single or a couple.

                                                          Thanks for you great review...and I'm so glad you enjoyed your repeated stays here at the Nest.

                                                          Snuggled in at the Nest

                                                          Although it snowed and had a bit of a wind storm while we were there, the Nest was comfortable, warm and relaxing. Simple and clean, it was a good set up for 2 people.

                                                          Thanks again!

                                                          A perfect cozy getaway. Sit outside and watch the birds or use it as a base to explore the island.

                                                          The Wrens Nest is a charming spot- perfectly cozy for 1-2 people with all of the essentials. The kitchen is well appointed if you decide to prepare a few meals, but there are several delicious eateries in town too. The bed is super comfy and between the baseboard heaters and the fireplace there was no issue keeping the nest snug and warm. I enjoyed lounging by the front window with a book and watching the birds. The little forest trail out back was great for a quick morning walk before heading out to explore the rest of the island. I definitely plan to be back!
