About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This detached mother-in-law has a rose covered, gated privacy entrance and a fenced, separate yard. A high-ceilinged great room with a warm wood stove and a large bedroom gives you plenty of space to relax while you enjoy the splendor of Vashon Island. There is a well-equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a washer and dryer. In the living area, there is a sleeper sofa. There is a small cable equipped television and wifi. Pets are accepted on a case-by-case basis. The property is on three fenced acres which you are welcome to share with guests of the big house or the owners.

Deer Cottage is within a hearty walk or easy bike ride to Vashon town, KVI Beach, Island Center Forest, the Arts Center, the Roasterie coffee shop and Minglemint organic grocery. We are a block from the forest park behind the school complex, a great place for a relaxing, easy hike.

About Rebecca

We are long time Washingtonians who have been taken to New York for work. We come back to stay on our beloved Vashon "farm" as often as we can, several times a year. we have a large extended family, who love Vashon as much as we do.

Rebecca purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Rebecca chose Vashon Island

Deer Cottage is a terrific little almost in-town but on your own spot from which to enjoy Vashon. It's comfy and convenient; walking distance to the fabulous new Arts Center, the wooded trail systems of the island, the Tramp Harbor and KVI beaches, and our favorite coffee spot, the Roasterie. We accept well-mannered dogs upon request. There is a fenced yard accompanying the property.

What makes this cottage unique

You can stay alone, or add on to a reservation at Orchard House, the main house on the property. It's a terrific spot for a family retreat or special event.

Rebecca was great and we loved the place. Our dog enjoyed hanging out in the yard with us (the hammock is especially nice) and very nice location. Loved it!
