Overview

Vashon Island Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 11-14)

Lavender Hill Farm is well known on Vashon Island for our U-Cut lavender stand and farm store, open from late June through early August. The property has 1500 lavender plants and more than 15 varieties, as well as beautiful gardens and stunning views. Come vacation in this tranquil setting in a 1930's farmhouse, thoughtfully updated and spacious enough for a reunion of friends and family. The long farmhouse porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee overlooking the gardens, fields, Quartermaster Harbor and Mount Rainier. Listen to the bees as you stroll through the fields and wander into the town of Burton, just a five minute walk, for supplies, coffee, and some browsing or a meal on the deck of the Quartermaster Inn. Inner and Outer Quartermaster Harbor is a short walk.

The house is light and bright, with nicely appointed guestrooms and three bathrooms for guests. The kitchen works for a crowd, with two ovens, a large center island, 6 burner cook top and large pantry - and there's a second fridge in the basement. The living room has two seating areas, there are two tables in the dining room and the long porch table seats twelve.

Enjoy the stars at night, the quiet, and spend your days biking, riding horses, kayaking or just finishing a book or writing one (wireless internet throughout the house). The island has a movie theatre, movie rental (and you've got cable as well) and many concerts, performances and gatherings to keep you as active as you like.

While you're relaxing, the lavender will continue to be harvested and there will be people dropping by at the U-Cut stand - the entrance is far away from the house. You're welcome to wander down and learn a little about lavender - we dry, we shuck, we make wreaths and lavender oil. Depending on when you're here, we're happy to have you join in.

Please visit our website for more photos and more info - see you in the lavender!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cathy,

We had a fantastic writing retreat at your spectacular farmhouse. Thank you for making the place so comfortable—and many thanks for the bottle of wine! Everyone is excited to return next summer, maybe for a longer stay. We enjoyed everything about the place—the view, the five-star kitchen, dining on the porch, walks in the neighborhood, all the amenities of the house. I even infused lavender into my fruit dessert one night. Delicious!

great for our retreat

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our retreat. Everyone had their own bedroom, very clean, very comfortable. The livingroom and dining areas were great for our meetings, as were the outside areas, which allowed us to get out and stretch a bit. There's a lovely coffee shop down by the harbor, which provides a nice walk. We'll likely return here again for our retreat next year.

Artist Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Eight artists spent 3 glorious days at Lavender Hill Farm. The magnificent gardens were perfect for making beautiful images. The house is most comfortable and the kitchen a delight. All eight of us could be in there at the same time! The property is as advertised and very well maintained.

Fantastic stay at Lavender Hill Farm!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this lovely home for a girl cousins reunion for 12 in early May. The home was perfect for our gathering of an annual family reunion. It was comfortable and homey and the most well appointed house we've rented. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. Plus the check out/clean up was very easy. Their guide to the house and the island was very detailed and useful. The setting is beautiful and so welcoming! We loved being there and will definitely return!

Beautiful, well-appointed, large home in great location

  • 5 of 5
I was able to convince my California cousins to come to the Pacific NW for our annual retreat. Nine of us spent three nights at Lavender Hill and were all impressed by how well it accommodated a group our size. I rent frequently on vrbo, and have never stayed in a house with such a well-stocked kitchen. The decor was tasteful and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful as well. All of this, plus attentive owners and local manager -- a 100% positive experience. Thank you!
