Wolf Glen Vashon Island Getaway Relax in Nature Walk the Beach
Wolf Glen is a wonderfully cozy 2 bedroom home with a large covered deck for outdoor grilling and dining on a natural glen that slopes toward the water. One property up from the water, it's a short walk down a single lane road that follows McCorm …
My husband and I have enjoyed many vacation rentals, but Wolf Glen takes the cake! This was by far the best vacation rental we have ever experienced. This very cozy, well-appointed home was everything we'd hoped for and more. The quiet location with an ocean view was perfect. No expense was spared on the appliances including the wood stove, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, oven, grills, and amazing hot tub. As many guests have commented - the radiant floor heat in the bathrooms was luxurious! The mattresses were more comfortable than my home mattress, the expansive living room couch was perfect for lounging. The house was spic and span, fully equipped for cooking, and was even stocked with spices, tea, coffee, condiments, etc! I really can't say enough nice things about this rental. It's a perfect home away from home.
We enjoyed a much needed relaxing weekend away. The cottage met our needs and more! The attention to detail that the owner has put into this place is amazing!! We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the view of the water...took walks on the beach and collected shells. We built a fire in the wood stove, very toasty and cozy. My husband especially enjoyed the hot tub, said it was just what the Dr. ordered!! The heated floors in the bathroom.....a nice feature as well. A fun little town to explore. I would highly recommend if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle.
This place is fantastic, way beyond what we have ever found in the numerous locations my friend and I have scouted out for 'girl's weekend away'. The attention to detail and the quality of the workmanship on this "cabin" is amazing. Nothing is missing from the fireplace, to the heated floor in the bathroom, to the hot tub, TWO grills, and on and on. Beautiful location, easy accessibility beach and quiet roads to roam.
Very nice place to stay; easy walk to the water; quiet; interior is very pleasant; very well kept up property. I would recommend this. Hot tub an added bonus!
We are former Vashon residents who came back to our old stomping grounds for a much needed visit. We absolutely loved Wolf Glen! The deck, hot tub and view were tops on our list. The kids loved the big yard in which they expended lots of energy. The weather was amazing so much time was spent just relaxing on the deck, catching up with dear friends.
Property was clean and well appointed. Owner is responsive to your communication. Location is great, not too far from ferry, Palouse Winery and town center.
We will definitely be back for our next visit.
Wolf Glen was even better than described...the house was very cozy and comfortable with many thoughtful touches throughout....heated bathroom floors, great BBQ, fell asleep in the hammock on the deck and I've never seen a wood stove the likes of that one...so toasty warm! Love Love Loved sitting in the hot tub in the morning watching and listening to the birds soar over head and the seeing the boats on the water. Love Love Loved enjoying the hot tub at night listening to the creek and watching the stars! Slept like babies in the comfy beds and it's so quiet at night. The kitchen is efficient and we whipped up some great meals with some local fresh produce from the Saturday Farmer's Market. The beach is lovely and serene. Such a relaxing time. Looking forward to our next visit.
Wolf Glen was perfect for our family thanksgiving get together. We are a couple with three semi-adult sons and a dog, who all gathered and relaxed together in this peaceful setting. We found being in this thoughtfully designed and tastefully furnished house helped us slow down, relax and enjoy each others company. While soaking in the hot tub, we enjoyed the view of the water in the distance and deer grazing in the meadow. Between rain showers, we took a couple of hikes on the island. Lots of information on local hikes was provided. The kitchen worked out fine for cooking large meals (appreciated the dishwasher). There's no big screen tv to distract. But there are some fun board games to play by the wood burning stove. This home has many wonderful "green" features. I think our favorite was the radiant floor heat in the bathrooms. Ah, there's nothing like getting your feet warmed while in the bathroom. We hope to come again to Wolf Glen in the summer to enjoy the outdoor deck and to use the outdoor grill and smoker.
I booked Wolf Glen for my bff's 30th birthday and we couldn't have been happier. The place was very clean and fully stocked on firewood, which was great because it rained all weekend. The kitchen is rather small for cooking but we managed. All in all, the house cozily accommodated four adults and two dogs. It was heaven waking up each morning and throwing the ball from the sprawling deck.
The beach is a quick walk down a dirt road. Even better, the hot tub is big and actually hot (instead of lukewarm).
If you're looking for a cozy weekend getaway that's close to both the ferry terminal and town, I highly recommend Wolf Glen.
This cottage was perfect for our stay on Vashon. It was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed to feel at home. I loved sitting on the deck sipping my coffee each morning while watching the deer feed on the fallen plums at the bottom of the garden. We nibbled a few of the plums ourselves. I would definitely recommend this home.
Some friends of mine and I wanted a weekend away from Seattle and the busy pace of work. Wolf Glen on Vashon was the perfect place. Very well laid out, peaceful and idyllic - it's a little piece of heaven.
Fantastic property with great outdoor space and access to surrounding area. Property is well maintained, attractive, and very comfortable. Owner was very helpful and accomodating to arrange the booking. This has the feeling of borrowing a friend's very special getaway cabin which is completely set up for a great visit. I would highly recommend this property.
We brought our own items (travel high chair, travel crib) to make the interior of the property work with young children.
Wolf Glen really exceeded our expectations.
In addition to the great location -- really, the photos here do not do it justice! -- we especially appreciated the care the owner has taken in the details: the simple but well-equipped kitchen, the lighting and plumbing fixtures, the attention to energy conservation and recycling.
But I think it was the quiet, the deep green forest and the view of the Sound we will miss the most.
Loved our stay here. Beautiful setting. Private with views of water from living room/dining room & hot tub. Appreciated the "green" touches like the radiant heat floor in the bathroom. Denny's background in design has helped to make this a beautiful and comfortable home. Local community is great too. People are super friendly.Good restaurants and great grocery store.
