Great 180 degree Views of Southern Puget Sound from Southern Vashon Island. Tacoma city and Commencement Bay night light views and during the day includes views of Mount Rainer and Point Defiance.
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
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.
Well equipped cabin, amazing views, abundant wildlife! We loved it.
The pictures posted online are gorgeous, but do not do this darling cottage justice. The views from every room in the house are amazing, even the shower! The cottage is equipped with everything you would ever need....just like home. The location is perfect as well. At first I was concerned that being a stones throw away from the ferry would be disruptive, but it was the opposite. Our 4 year old son loved watching the ferry, and all of the other sail boats, come and go. The beach was full of treasures! Cool rocks, & neat shells. We even had an otter come right up onto shore! It was a charming, relaxing, amazing weekend, and we cannot wait to go back!
Our family of 4, including our 2 kids, aged 6 and 1, stayed here for 1 night. We were driving up from Portland, and didn't want to put our kids through a 3+ hour drive and 3+ hour plane ride in the same day. The views were amazing. We cooked dinner and ate on the deck. During our 15 or so hours in the house, we saw a deer, a bald eagle landed on the beach nearby, there were also swallows and butterflies around. In the water, we saw a seal, some porpoises, cormorants. The views are pretty much amazing from everywhere in the house. There also wasn't a ton of "decoration" around for my 1-year-old to get into, which was great. The bed was comfortable. The ferry ride over was nice - long enough to get out of the car and enjoy the view, but pretty short overall. I would highly recommend this place - and would love to come back and explore Vashon island more.
My husband, 5 year old, 11 month old and I had a wonderful time at clam cove cottage. It was only for 1 night but the house, location and amenities made it possible to cram so much good stuff into a short amount of time. The bed was very comfortable, the views were beautiful, and we even got to toast marshmallows at the fire pit as we watched the sun set. Thanks so much, would recommend.
This was such a cool spot with an amazing view. We loved watching the ferry go by, the deck and fire pit were great and the bed was super comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!!
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful beach escape with us. Our family thoroughly enjoyed this piece of paradise, and loved every bit of it! We also saw 3 bald eagles the next morning, swoop in for their breakfast. Quite the treat! The place is lovely, well kept, and clean. Thank you again!
