About Erin Lemons

My family and I have be been vacationing to this beautiful area since 1964. I've had the great opportunity to share the experience with my children and now my grandchildren. All are addicted to the beach life as I am. I hope everyone who visits walks away with their own wonderful memories and experiences.

Erin Lemons purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Erin Lemons chose Vashon Island

My aunt and uncle bought the cabin as a summer get away where I spent many wonderful summers. Later it was sold to my parents then my husband and I had the opportunity to purchase it. It has been wonderful for me to share the unique experiences the beach house has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

Hop in the kayak or row boat and site-see from the water. In the evening dine on the deck and enjoy the water all around you. Or swing open the gate for a swim. You might even enjoy fishing from the deck. In the day the tide is out so you can go out to the waters edge and find all kinds of beach life. It is a always changing landscape with plenty to enjoy.

Perfect little retreat

  • 5 of 5
We arrived with the rain and drizzle of fall. This was to be expected. I'd love to return in the summer when we'd be better able to enjoy the boats.
We took walks in the woods and I walked around the loop. The deck was perfect for a glass of wine and a good book. Or, if the weather was more accommodating, lunch and dinner.
The cottage (more a cottage than a cabin) is beautifully appointed and immaculately clean. It is also full of personality. The kitchen is the very best equipped kitchen of any VRBO rental I've ever been in and everything was attractive and in perfect working order and, again, immaculately clean. It was a wonderful treat and sight for sore eyes for weary and hungry travelers to find the welcome basket of salmon, cheese and crackers, cookies, and wine on the counter.
Anything you could need in the way of laundry supplies--even basic cooking supplies were there. No need to run to the store to buy detergent or paper products or salt and pepper or more.
The beds were perfect. Views spectacular. Even with the less than perfect weather, there were boats going past daily. I loved the cute little hobbit doors--especially the Dutch Door entry.
The only downside is the steep climb up and down front the parking area. When Erin says "steps" she means stairs. We got good at it, though--but it's best to be prepared that carrying luggage and groceries in will be a bit more difficult than you may have expected and to plan accordingly.
Another disappointment was the lack of good eating establishments on the island. If they were there, we didn't find them. I have to say, though, that Zombie's burger was one of the best I've ever eaten, so don't let the weird name keep you away. I'd expected lots of opportunities to indulge in fresh seafood--but no. If there's a seafood restaurant, it was hidden away somewhere. If I'd been in the mood for cooking, there was a plentiful supply of organic veggies etc everywhere you looked.
It's very easy to get to the ferry and back to the mainland if you want to, but we got Island Happy and didn't want to leave. We took one trip back to meet friends and couldn't wait to get back to our island. We could have taken the ferry to Seattle and eaten seafood--but it was easier to just stay put and enjoy the beauty of Vashon.
Erin was extremely helpful and considerate in all our dealings and with last minute changes of itinerary etc. You couldn't ask for a more helpful hostess.
First class!

Owner's Response: It's wonderful you enjoyed our little place on the beach so much and all the accommodations that help our guests enjoy and be comfortable every minute of their stay. Thank you for mentioning the steps. They get steeper and longer when you have lots of trips with groceries or luggage. Sometimes it's a little extra effort but well worth it when all done.
The island has wonderful places to site see and shop but does not have a big selection of restaurants like that you might be use to in the big cities. There are a few local favorites that are mine as well that I'm going to add to my island info packet because they aren't easily recognizable but are very good places to eat.
I always enjoy working with my guests to be flexible with their schedules or even offering an early check in or out if it's available. Traveling can come with its own unexpected schedule so I like to help with that as much as possible to make it a wonderful vacation.

Stay Away

I've put off writing this because we don't want any more folks to discover this bit of heaven. Just read the other reviews... can't add anything except that this is the best-located, best-equipped VRBO property we've ever stayed in, with some of the nicest and most responsive owners. We've already booked for next year (already becoming difficult to find vacant time though!). Don't stay here; it's already too popular!

Owner's Response: I love it. Stay Away..... but you can't. It's way to addictive. We look forward to your return to the island.

Wonderful Get-Away Destination

  • 5 of 5
I chose this Vashon Island cabin because it had great reviews, accepted one-night stays, and without traveling too far (from Puyallup, WA) we could experience island life.

The owner, Erin, was a pleasure to book through. It is obvious that she is very proud of and enjoys sharing her lovely cabin. Thank you!, Erin, for the brochures you sent for planning our trip and for the welcome basket when we arrived.

The cabin is just charming! We were impressed by the high quality of the furnishings (most with a nautical theme) and the cabin's cleanliness. The kitchen is perfectly stocked and organized. Bedrooms are cozy with the most comfortable queen beds.

The water views are what make this cabin so enjoyable. When the tide was high, it felt like we were on a cruise ship. We enjoyed watching the boats, a harbor seal popping up out of the waves, and the moon lighting up the water at night.

The cabin is semi-private with cabins on either side, but not too close. One was unoccupied during our stay and the other is being remodeled. Some construction noise but not a problem at all.

We found the beach a little hard to walk on because of the barnacle covered rocks, we didn't venture too far. There are several other beaches on Vashon for walking and exploring though. Or from the cabin just walk across the highway to a delightful trail through Burton Acres Park. Our one disappointment was in having to leave! Next time we'll definitely stay more that one night.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
I can not say enough about this cabin. It was absolutely gorgeous. Every detail was thought of. It was very obvious that the owners take a lot of pride in this cabin. Pictures do not so this place justice. My husband and daughter praised me almost every day for finding this place. And trust me it's not easy to impress my teenage daughter :) The kayaks were awesome to have available especially since the kayak rental down the way was charging $80 a day. The deck was to die for with plenty of seating and a grill available. The kitchen was nice and updated and had a great welcome basket (thank you :)) along with spices and even coffee or tea. The cabin is beautifully decorated and the furniture is comfortable and like new. We even had deer that came right up to the kitchen window to feed on the plants. Seriously I could go on and on. We will definitely be back next year. Thank you for sharing this lovely home.

Owner's Response: I just have to tell you thank you very, very much for the nice comments. My husband and I unfortunately don't get to meet our guests but we want everyone to have the wonderful experience we have when we have the opportunity to visit ourselves. And it sounds like you did. The best part is a happy teenager so we consider that the best review e v e r.

I'm glad to know about the kayak rental fee. That's a great savings for everyone.

We look forward to you and your family coming back.

Sincerely,
Glenn and Erin lemons

Charming to say the least!!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful VRBO! They thought of everything to make our Puget Sound vacation perfect. Situated right-on-the-water's-edge this cabin is exactly what you want for your saltwater getaway. The home was comfortable and very, very clean. Kitchen is well equipped. Deck furniture and BBQ for outdoor cooking. Bedding was quality. Toys (kayaks, paddle board, life jackets, paddles, wet suit tops) were there. Absolutely the best VRBO we have stayed at (and we have done many). Easy ferry ride from Tacoma or Seattle. We will be back again and again I am sure!
