Spacious Suite with private entrance offers vaulted ceilings and a fresh open air feel. You can relax in the upstairs suite or come down to enjoy time outside on our spacious deck which hosts a therapeutic hot tub.

The space

Don't miss out on this lovely space. Also, check out our other listing (Good Shepherd Farm & Garden B & B). Our reviews speak for us better than we can. So many great guests.

This small studio apartment has a mini "kitchen", and all the comforts of home. There's a pull out sofa that is quite comfortable to sleep on for two in addition to a full size bed. The room has vaulted ceilings, plush carpet, cable tv, DVD, internet wifi, and a private entrance which takes you directly to the deck where you can jump right into our new spa tub. You are welcome to help yourself to fresh berries and garden greens right from our seasonal garden. If you like fresh veggies, we guarantee you will have plenty to enjoy. The garden grows with every summer we are here and our guests enjoy walking through to see the different veggies and berries we have. We also have fresh chicken eggs from our 8 hens and lots of entertainment from the girls as well as our gobblers.

We are centrally located on the island, walking distance to town and just two blocks from a popular gathering place that serves the best coffee on the planet. By the way we provide that coffee in your room along with fresh farm eggs at your request. Vashon is an artists community and live music is offered many nights a week during the busier summer months.

Traveling with a pet? We can accommodate your pet too. We have a small kennel on the property and for an additional $20 at check in/day your dog can stay in the kennel and you will have access to enjoy taking him/her on outings or give you the freedom to enjoy the day while your pup plays with other dogs. Be sure to bring an up to date rabies certificate with you though. (the state requires it).

Our dogs are extremely people and kid friendly. But if you have reservations about them we are happy to keep them out of your contact. We understand that even with friendly dogs not everyone feels comfortable around them. But if you are up for a good game of fetch, we warn you they are relentless. If you enjoy just watching them, and the occasional hello, then all you have to do is ignore and they quickly get the message. In any event, your wish is our command. We are here to make your stay pleasurable and unique. We do not offer cooked breakfast with this room, but you are able to make what ever you like and if there is something from our kitchen you need, just let us know we are happy to accommodate.

Hope to see you this summer!

I ended up staying 5 weeks. The hosts, Janet and Wayne, were very pleasant, helpful, and always welcoming. The dogs, Tahoma and Denali, were so sweet. Love them! There is a lot of dogs barking as it is a kennel but it didn't take long to get use to it. The bed was very comfy. Keep in mind that the living room and bathroom end up making the kitchen but like I said, I was there for 5 weeks and cooked my heart out! Between the toaster oven, microwave, and this cool hot plate..I was set! It is a good idea to have a car or a bike as it is a long walk to the grocery store/downtown. There is a bus as well if you are staying longer that you can get a pass for and can flag down to pick you up. Overall, the town was very friendly...even got invited to a few cookouts by the locals!

Conveniently located on the Island for easy access to either ferry, Janet & Wayne's place is very easy to locate. We found all the amenities needed to make our stay away from home comfortable. It is in close proximity to Vashon's charming shops, galleries and restaurants. Janet and Wayne went out of their way to accommodate our needs which we certainly appreciated, making our stay very enjoyable.

Highly recommend this alternative to hotel stay. Beautiful location, pleasant, totally available hosts as needed, well stocked kitchenette, the fresh fruit was a particularly appreciated extra. Extra towels, pillows, coffee and tea supplies and just about everything you might want were anticipated and present for guests. Such a wonderful experience!
