LAVENDER HILL FARM HOUSE WITH VIEW, GARDENS, WALK TO THE BEACH

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!

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!

I recently surprised my girlfriend with a small gathering of her friends at the Lavender Hill Farm House over a 2 day weekend. My only regret is that we were not able to stay longer. The property is beautiful and tranquil with a breathtaking view of Mount Rainier. The kitchen was well stocked and remarkably fun to cook in for the night. I would love to return.

Home away from home!

Our family of 6 (5 adults and a 1 yr. old) who occupied three bedrooms very much enjoyed our stay at this wonderful farm home. It was clear that the owners love their second home, spending part of the year there themselves when the vacation home also serves as a working farm, where lavender is raised for sale and distribution.

We were provided a warm welcome into the home with flowers, a bottle of locally bottled wine and an unexpected note. We found the home to be well appointed and comfortable. It was friendly for both adults and children. It sits on Vashon Island, a bedroom community of Seattle, with convenient and frequent vehicle and passenger ferry transit to Fauntleroy (West Seattle) with subsequent convenient travel to downtown Seattle and surrounding areas. However, leaving for Seattle is rarely necessary since stores and shops, along with quaint restaurants and entertainment venues are present on the island itself.

The property itself sits on a quiet street with lovely acreage, most of which is planted in lavender. There are a couple of functioning out buildings on the property, which contain gardening/farming instruments and tools. One of the most attractive features of the property is the well designed and appointed non-lavender landscaping which provides a sanctuary for strolls, meditation, and animals and birds. A short 1 ½ block walk from the property will take you to a quaint coffee hut which serves as a landmark in the community where locals gather to make certain that everyone knows everything that’s happening. Athletic visitors will find a nice three mile running route that circumnavigates a nearby peninsula on the island.

The home itself is generous in size with many more bedrooms than we could use. The home has a large dining room table inside and an equally large dining table on the deck that provides a pleasant venue for all meals. Since we visited in May, we were treated to wonderful daily views of Mt. Rainer from the deck.

The home is well appointed with all modern amenities. The kitchen has up-to-date appliances and all needed utensils are well laid out and labeled. The owners are conscientious in making sure all the renters’ individual needs are met to insure a relaxing stay. We were made to feel like we were in a home away from home.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful house and gardens with us, which allowed us to be together as a family for A and J's wedding. We saw the sun on the mountain and enjoyed the walks and lavender books too.
