About Kory Lovre

I am the great grandson of the original builders of this house. They emigrated from Norway in the late 1800's and settled on Vashon Island. There were two brothers, both lumbermen, and they build this house and the neighboring house up the driveway.

Kory Lovre purchased this farmhouse in 1889

Why Kory Lovre chose Vashon Island

Enjoy the two Redwood trees my grandma and grandpa planted in the 40's. Enjoy the hugh Maple tree planted by their parents back in the 1800s.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Since this house was built in 1889 you get to stay in a piece of Vashon history. You can sit in the white rocking chair on the front porch of the house and enjoy watching the birds come to feed. If you come in May you can see the many Rhodedendrons in bloom too. Since the house is older it won't be quite in perfect condition and you may get that older house musky smell at times. As well, since their are 5 acres the entire 5 acres is not maintained in perfect condition (the field is only mowed once a year but I try to keep a trail mowed in it for walks out back).

Peaceful country living!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Steen Strawberry House. We were lucky enough to spend a week here with our children. This place is the perfect beautiful combination of country farmhouse beauty and accessibility. Picture children running down a dirt lane to a beautifully simple wooden house with flowers growing all around, within an easy walk to town and right on the bus line for a quick commute to the ferry. The host was very respectful of our privacy ( which I don't always find with VRBO's) , but was very available to answer all of my questions graciousness and generosity almost immediately via email.. We were made to feel like appreciated guests! Perfect! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 4 of 5
My family and I really enjoyed the property — the house was perfectly comfortable and my kids loved exploring the acres. The house was very convenient to town -- by bus or by car. The neighbors were so kind to us — letting our kids pick raspberries to their hearts content and playing on the old tennis court. We even took a day-trip back to Vashon and stopped by to say hi to the neighbors and to drop off homemade thank you notes from our kids.

Thank you for making your home available -- we had a wonderful time.
