About Lance Gildea

I am Lance Gildea. My wife Deanna and I, so much enjoy sharing this piece of paradise with our guests. Everyone just wows at the view and just loves what we have done with this little water side cabin that we like to call a cottage. We are getting closer to having an empty nest. Our Daughter is in Denver studying to become a pastry chef and our Son is in the middle of his High School years.

Lance Gildea purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Lance Gildea chose Puget Sound

Just love the views and southern exposure to the sun. Mostly because this southern location had the most amount of sun that could be found on the island. We are always in the sun here on Vashon Island. You can only get here by boat. Just the first of so many special things about Vashon. Check it out for yourself. Do a search on Vashon Island.

Relaxing water front cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy accommodations in a beautiful location. I was surprised by the amount of wildlife that I saw from the bay windows of the cabin. Luckily for us during our stay the sun came out, and the clouds cleared, to reveal a specular view of Mt. Rainer.

A fantastic location with unbelievable reviews

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is on the southern end of Vashon and we loved it. We watched the seals and the otters and loved the views of the mountains. I would definitely recommend it.

So sweet and special!

  • 5 of 5

Clam Cove Cottage is really a magical place -- gorgeous views, and it really is *right* on the water, so much that it almost feels like you're on a boat! The place is well stocked with kitchen wear and bedding, and is cozy but spacious enough for a small group. Our only complaint was that there was no firewood for the wood stove, so even though the listing says there will be some, maybe check with the owners to make sure before heading out there. Otherwise, a seriously magical experience. Thank you, Clam Cove!

Another perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

When I was there in August the weather was wonderful! This time, in October, I had just the right amount of stormy, rainy gray days. I love the island in any and all seasons and the Cottage made it just perfect.
