Delightful vintage cottage on over an acre of treed land adjacent to but separate from owner's home. Located mid-island close to amenities of Vashon town & 10 minutes from the Seattle ferry. Great for a romantic getaway or your own private retreat.

Rose cottage is my favorite Vashon retreat. I have been there many times, in all seasons. In the summer it is nestled amongst a beautiful garden of roses and fruit trees of many varieties (Shirley even lets you take some home). I often see deer while sitting on the porch swing s…

Location is good--close to town, big yard, lots of fruit trees. Cute inside, almost too cute with flowers and antiques everywhere. Kitchen not very functional. Roosters start crowing at about 4-5am and dont stop for a long time. Bed is very small and uncomfortable. It's ant…

Response from Shirley:
Cat, I'm very sorry you and your boyfriend did not have an enjoyable stay at Rose Cottage. Thank you for acknowledging that we accommodated a last-minute stay request from you. I would like to point out that in addition to not getting the normal 24-hr notice, cleaning time was further cut short by your request to check in early to get ready for the social event you were attending. The antique bed and standard full-size mattress are clearly described in the listing. The mattress cover is for your protection and is of a soft vinyl rather than crackly plastic, and there is a quilted fabric mattress pad on top of the mattress cover. There were alternate feather and down pillows provided on the open shelf located one foot from and clearly visible at eye level from the bed. This time of year there are lots of spiders and new webs appear within hours even after cleaning. That being said, the cleaning was accomplished in 1 1/2 hours rather than the usual 3-4 hours we normally spend in order to accommodate your specific schedule and request. Unfortunately, we have no control over the neighbor's roosters. It's a rural area, and most guests seem to enjoy the neighboring donkey and chickens as part of the country experience. Again, our apologies for the difficulties with your stay and we wish you the best in your future travels. Sincerely, Shirley

The stay was wonderful! We had a delightful time exploring the quaint town of Vashon. The Rose Cottage was only a half mile from the heart of the town and with a bike it was really easy to go sight seeing or have a fancy dinner out. Thriftway which is a two minute bike ride offer…

Great little place with all the amenities. I enjoyed having my own little home with everything I needed. Shirley was very helpful and checked in to be sure I everything was ok. One day I didn't feel well and she offered to go to the store to get what I needed. The coffee provide…

Lovely spot and fantastic location-downtown Vashon is within walking distance. Shirley made us feel very welcome and the cottage was well-equipped. Every room had fresh flowers in it from the garden which I particularly enjoyed. Very private and quiet. Would definitely stay the…
