Distinctive Traditional Country Pine Log Lodge with Dramatic Water Views
4 bedrooms, loft, 2 full baths, sleeps 8 -14 adults (18 maximum with children)
Beauty, charm, comfort and historical tradition.
PRICING FOR 2 TO 18 GUESTS.
Since opening in May 2009 Bayview Retreat has accommodated over 1500 guests from all over the world (88 rentals). My visitors choose to stay here for many reasons but overall they find it to be a welcoming refuge from the cares of the city and a comfortable place for entertaining, unwinding, or just simply relaxing.
The unique pine log and cedar lodge is located on the highly desired Burton Peninsula of Vashon Island and it's the perfect place to stay while you explore the island and greater Puget Sound region. You're just minutes from dining, shopping, the beach, hiking trails and many other recreational opportunities.
Bask in the sunshine while you enjoy the dramatic bay views of outer Quartermaster Harbor to Tacoma. You, your family and friends will cherish the open space, water views, abundant wildlife and privacy of this secluded two acre country setting. There is over one half acre of lawns which give you plenty of room for outdoor fun and games. There are many mature plantings and flowers blooming eight months of the year. Yes, we have lavender too!
This spacious lodge offers over 3500 square feet of living space. The open floor plan lets large groups spread out without feeling isolated from others. Original artwork, stained glass, family antiques, Oriental rugs and a great variety of plants will add to the magic of your island visit.
It's one of the few places you'll find where you can watch bald eagles, deer and hummingbirds year-round from a private hot tub.

We had a wonderful experience at Bayview Retreat. Our expectations were more than met. We had our wedding there and found it to be the dream location for small wedding. Our close friends and family fit with plenty of space in the house and enjoyed the beauty and small island feel during the days before the wedding.
