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.

Amazing, Beautiful piece of Heaven on Vashon Island

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lance for having this Wonderful place to share with others. The cottage was cozy and comfortable for the two of us. The view's were breathtaking and so peaceful. We were able to unwind, relax, explore and just enjoy the few days we had.

We enjoyed watching the harbor seals play and the birds fly around.

The cottage is well stocked with everything that you need to cook with and relax with.

We will be back again another time. Mike and Cindy Fleming

Coffee with Sea Otters and Herons

  • 5 of 5

Doing business in Tacoma? Are you taking a family trip to Point Defiance Zoo and Park? Wanting a romantic weekend on rural Vashon Island? Clam Cove Cottage is your answer for all things beautiful and calm. This photo from the deck of the cabin welcomed beautiful sunsets and awesome sunrises. We luxuriated in a full cabin suited as if it were a permanent home. I adored the Tommy Bahama sheets and wood stove. If you awake early before the family or lover or are zenning out before you hit Tacoma or Lewis/McCord for your big meeting, you will be entertained by sea otters enjoying you drinking your coffee on the deck. Lance is the most gracious host and will be in quick contact. Make your date now, before I take up all the spots on the calendar.

Cozy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Came with my 2 kids and we had a blast looking for shells and crabs on the beach, watching movies in the living room, and enjoying the spectacular view. We hope to return soon!

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!
