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.

Wonderful fenced yard for pets. Cute and cozy!
Had a wonderful stay at Deer Cottage! Private, clean and cozy. Unable to get on WiFi or get much reception, however that just adds to the peacefulness of the place
I’m so sorry the Wi-Fi wasn’t working for you! Please let us know next time so we can reboot it for you. There isn’t much we can do about cell reception.
Cute quiet place, enclosed yard was good for kitties
Really nice quiet place
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!
Wonderful house for getting away and enjoying Vashon Island's character.
Clean. Cozy. Peaceful and Quiet. Better than being at home!!!
Very dog friendly. Completely enclosed large area for our dogs to run and play.
Charming, MIL type, but lots of space. I did see deer! This was my first time on Vashon, I was here for business but definitely want to come back to enjoy the island! Hosts were pleasant and informative (I was warned about the big Festival traffic the weekend I was to arrive, and was able to plan accordingly as streets were closed). The bathroom may not work if you have special needs or bad hips (the toilet and sink are elevated a few inches up) but it's not awful, just unusual. I'm not sure I'd be able to use it if I was in a wheelchair. But the kitchen has all cooking utensils and plates/silverware, and spices, and there's a coffeemaker with reusable filter, plus a compost bin outside in the lovely yard - with a hammock! I was there on some pretty hot days and the ceiling fans felt wonderful. Bed is comfortable, I think full size. The TV is small but really this is a place for bookworms (and there is a nice selection of books available). Oh and there's a washer/dryer with soap and bleach, works great. Would love to stay again.
Manager wonderful. Building very nice. Furnishing fair
Sheree was a jewel. We liked the location and wonderful pet yard. Offsetting this were furnishings and equipment needs. Circular sofa so so for comfort. Needed end tables and reading lights at a minimum. Broken lamp at dining table. TV non functioning either by remotes or controls on the set. Attention to these details would greatly enhance this rental. I think I would recommend replacing the sofa. Hope this encourages upgrading this rental.
So sorry you were unhappy with the couch! This is the first complaint we have received. As for the TV: we wish you had let us know it was difficult for you to operate; we could have helped. The same goes for the dining table lamp. We don't know that guests are having problems finding the right power switch (on the back wall) if guests don't tell us. We hope your next rental is more satisfactory!
