Bufflehead Beach Cottage
Bufflehead Beach Cottage is located on Vashon Island—the heart of Puget Sound—where rural lifestyles and natural wonders coexist a short ferry ride from urban pleasures in Seattle and Tacoma. Our cottage is located on Shawnee Beach--one of Vasho …
My husband and I came here to get away for our anniversary and it was absolutely perfect! No detail left unattended to! Such a cozy place to hang out. Loved the decor and the bed was so comfortable. We will certainly come back ASAP!
Bufflehead Cottage is exceptionally CLEAN and well-maintained. It is truly a destination for any season! If it is raining, there are many wonderful books, art pieces, and DVDs to choose from, as well as wi-fi. If it is not raining, the village is nearby. You can walk there at low tide along the adjacent beachfront. It is a lovely little place with perfect decor by the friendly and talented artist-owner, and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen for a round of cooking. There are board games and also a plentiful wood supply for the cozy woodstove. The porch facing the beach and water is comfortable and well-furnished for outdoor dining or activities. Each room of the cottage is thoughtfully decorated, and the beds are...oh so comfortable! With the water in view at all times, you will definitely feel connected to this great south end island location, knowing that you are far away from your everyday life. A restful holiday is in store for you at this perfect Vashon Island getaway. I will come again any and all seasons.
We stayed two nights in this comfortable little cottage as we said goodbye to our lovely daughter as she returned to Barcelona. This warm little cottage was just what we needed to lift our spirits and relax our souls. Christina is an incredibly gifted interior designer. The artwork is exquisite, the decor in all rooms is consistent with the feel of the cottage and beach. The kitchen is complete with anything you desire to prepare a meal or snack. It feels like someone actually lives here when guests aren't present. We plan on returning this winter to experience this place in the wet months of the year. Soup, book, and a warming fire are calling to us.
This lovely property is well decorated,clean, comfortable with the beach right outside your patio door. We enjoyed bird watching, shell hunting, walking on the beach and watching the tides come and go. A perfect place to unwind, reconnect with loved ones and read a good book. We will be back!
Bufflehead Cottage was all that we had hoped for and more. We had such a relaxing stay and enjoyed the company of the neighbor cat. I also loved the art work and couldn't resist purchasing a print to bring home.We would gladly stay here again.
This place is wonderful. Very clean, great view, nice furnishings, very comfy bed. Well worth the cost.
My wife and I were given a day and night at the Bufflehead Beach Cottage as a Christmas present. And, after staying the night, we both agree it was the most delighful Christmas present we have ever received.
The owner met us at the cabin and showed us through the inside. She was very nice and treated us as if we were old friends. The cabin interior was the cleanest we have ever seen. And that compares favorably with 5 star hotels, both in the US and Europe..
The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, with electric stove and oven. Lots of dishes, pots and pans. All rooms are relatively large and include a dining area, and living room with wood burning stove,and a ROCKING CHAIR, There is a seperate bedroom with TV, a nice sized bath with lots of light, an ultra clean shower, and washer and dryer. There was also a walk-in closet.
The interior is classy-rustic with lots of windows and glass doors, and original art every where you look. The windows look out on Quarter Master Harbor, that has many ducks, geese, and some other large comical birds. Cormorants, I think. .
Our stay was great. It would be a really great place, to sit down wih a good bowl of soup, a good book, some stormy weather, and a fire in the woodsove. .

This property is a vacation dream come true. A cozy cottage right on the water with all that beauty laid out in front of you. Its honestly hard to leave to see anything else on the island, but if you do there's a new Thai restaurant in town that's pretty fantastic. Do it!
Stayed one night with our 9 year old. Despite the "not ideal" weather we had a great time. Went beach combing, hung out at the house, walked to town. Nice to know this place to be that close by.
This is a beautiful property, steps to the beach, with wonderful views. We sat there for hours in the evening with the fire glowing, watching the waves lapping on the shore and the lights on the other side of the bay twinkling. It is well maintained with everything you could need for any length of stay. The owner could not have been more helpful. I will definitely be recommending this property and hoping to return there myself.

Beautiful Lake Retreat on Olympic Peninsula
See All Vashon Vacation Rentals »
Our cabin on Carney Lake is the perfect retreat for couples, families, a girls' or boys' weekend, scrapbooking getaway, or even group or corporate events. It is a fully functioning home, but tucked into the trees of the Olympic Peninsula with a beautiful view of the lake from the Adirondak chairs on the deck. It is quiet, cozy and welcoming. In the summer, the swim float is ideal for the kids' King of the Float contests or just to bask in the warm sun. There is also canoe to explore the lake in its entirety. There is a fire pit for s'mores and hot dogs and plenty of grass and beach to visit with friends, watch the kids in the water or simply enjoy the quiet.
In the colder months, snuggle up on the big couch by the gas stove while reading, watching movies, tackling a puzzle or playing games.
There are two bedrooms, but also two lofts. Each loft has a futon as well as additional mattresses. The sectional is also a sofa bed, so there are plenty of soft places to land.
If relaxation isn't the only thing on your mind, we are about 20 minutes from the Bremerton ferries, taking you into Seattle for the day, or head south on Highway 16 to do some shopping and eating in Gig Harbor. Heading west just a few miles will take you to Hoods Canal, and more water and hiking adventures beyond that all across the southern Puget Sound and Olympic Peninsula. And five miles down the road is Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club for the golf and fly enthusiasts.
Whether you are here on business, pleasure, to see friends and family, or to get away, our retreat on Carney Lake will be all you are looking for.
