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
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!
