WOLF GLEN VASHON ISLAND GETAWAY RELAX IN NATURE WALK THE BEACH

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 McCormick Creek to the waterfront of Puget Sound.

Start by stepping out the front door to walk across the yard, through the bamboo gateway and, if you want, even walk through the wolf and eagle tree carving (see photos). I'll write more about the fir tree (the source of most of the siding on the house) and the carving of the statue later.

The home is fully equipped for cooking and dining with comfortable seating for 6 at the dining table. There's a couple stools at the cooking peninsula for friends or family to sit and chat while someone whips up something yummy in the kitchen.

For tea drinkers there's a convenient Instahot hot water maker (dispenses filtered cold and hot water). For Coffee drinkers you will find a bag of Wolf Blend coffee from The Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie, the birthplace of Stewart's Brothers Coffee which later became Seattle's Best Coffee. If you want a fabulous latte, in my book, there's no better place to go. Just a short drive down the middle of the island.

If you don't want to cook there are many fabulous restaurants and coffee shops. Fine dining at the Hardware Store (sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it). Great hash brown and eggs at Sporty's. Delicious Mexican and marguritas at Casa Bonita's and many other wonderful places to choose from.

There are several stores in town for those that like to shop. A drug store and 2 grocery stores.

A washer and dryer and laundry soap are included for your convenience.

You can heat with the modern Convectaire wall heaters or use the wood stove for the ambience of the fire.

You can't find a more relaxing place to hang out with friends or family and be this close to Seattle and all of the big city activities it offers.

I'm a remodeling contractor of many years. Started out as a carpenter and a painter and now have a small but successful design/build remodeling business with 8 wonderful employees. I enjoy my work and I have an interest in interfaith studies with the hope of helping people of differing faiths find the common ground we all stand upon.

Denny purchased this house in 2007

I have always wanted to have a place where people could come and relax and enjoy the quiet or hang out with friends and family. Originally I bought this place to be my home but have since decided to bring my dream alive of a vacation place for others.

Sitting in the hot tub and looking up at the stars. Watching deer wander into the yard. Walking the beach and seeing seals or otters swimming through the water or eagles and opsrey flying overhead.

Peaceful and relaxing!

A great place to kick back and relax, especially in the hot tub! The rental is cosy and comfortable and always feels welcoming. If you have a car, it's only a few minutes drive to the shops one way and the ferry in another direction.

We love using this wonderful place as a base from which to explore the island and all of it's local treasures. We will be back!

Canning weekend success!

I have a group of gal pals that have a seasonal tradition of canning. We usually rotate between our houses, but once a year we like to make a weekend of it. This past winter/spring we spent our weekend at Wolf Glen. Such an idyllic setting, and cozy interior. We didn't want to leave. The large deck is begging for beautiful dinner parties and living room is perfect with a roaring fire. Plus...the hot tub. I can't say enough praises, wish I could call it home. Hope to rent it again this spring.

Perfect home away from home

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.

Very Relaxing!!

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.
