Surrounded by several hundred acres of forest and fieldand sitting high atop a bluff, this location has the most spectacular view of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier and the Cascade Mountains of any place on Vashon Island. A leisurely walk through the countryside gets you to the shore below where you will find a beach, a dock, and a turn of the century lighthouse to explore.

Behind the cottages, nestled amongst the Plum trees, there is a HOT TUB in a deck where you can soothe away your stress! This is a quiet place. It is an older homestead with mature fruit orchards and gardens, yet still blessed with glimpses of nature--Does and their Fawns, Eagles and Owls, baby Swallows stretching their wings for the first time.


THE NEST – Sleeps Two.
Swallow's Nest
A complete one bedroom cottage of about 250 squarefeet. It has often been described as a little doll house. The front porch has a swing with a view of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. As you open the front door, you enter an all purpose room that functions as a living room, dining room and kitchenette. It is furnished with a table and a couple of chairs, a rocking chair on an Oriental throw rug on a hardwood floor, and has a complete little kitchen with stove, sink and refrigerator along one wall. From the rocking chair you can see sunrise over the Cascade Mountains through lavender Rhododendrons. The bedroom has a queen bed with just enough room to get around it, a color television, and a view of moonrise over the Cascades and Puget Sound. Outside the bathroom window are Plum trees which flower in the Spring.


THE BIRD BLIND – Sleeps Two. nest_line_draw.gif (23644 bytes)
    This studio cottage is an expansive room with a pine ceiling and a large picture window overlooking the orchard, pasture and woods. It's furnished with a Queen size bed, color TV/VCR, arm chair, and a table with two captains chairs. The kitchenette, equipped with toaster
oven, microwave oven, hot plate, Mr. Coffee and refrigerator, allows for light cooking. The private bath is cedar paneled and has a shower over a tub.

    A guest who stayed in this cottage with his binoculars and birding manuals commented, "This has to be the most comfortable bird blind I've ever been in. The activity in the field outside is absolutely delightful!" And so it is. Another guest reported seeing 49 species in a week's time. Perhaps you will see Pheasants, Hawks, Gold Finches, Barn Swallows, Pileated Woodpeckers, or Hummingbirds.
