This property is a world (and 30 minutes) away from the Emerald City of Seattle. Relax on the beach. Read a book. Kayak. Bird. Babble with the brook. Fern Cove is a pocket gem on Vashon Island.

Our yearly cousin camp of 6 lady cousins. A time to laugh and stay up all night or have some of the most intense talks. This location is perfect, no neighbors and the outside space is beyond perfect with all the chairs and tables by the water. The inside is well kept and so open and inviting. Everything was there for us to enjoy the weekend and Eric was super friendly at check in. Wifi wasn't the best, but it just made us stop and play games and watch the birds and tide go in and out. We loved that there were extra boots on the porch too. Best kept secret hidden spot ever!!
Spacious, on the water, peaceful, near walks, sense of history, kitchen was outstanding and everything provided. Beautiful!
The Belle Baldwin house is a great property and a real treasure on Vashon Island - it is incredible that this was donated to the public. The house exudes an authentic charm while having all the modern conveniences.
The location of the property is great, at the basin of fern cove and short walk to the shingle mill trail. I don't know many places that are as easily accessible to the northern ferries and town while affording the opportunity to sit along the water and watch as bald eagles pass by.
The park service does a great job of managing this property. Not only is the house in good working order, the logistics around access, entry and clean up are a breeze.
While we only rented here for three nights, we will definitely be back every time we come back to the island - which is frequent.
Thank you for making such a wonderful property available for us all to share.
Thank you for a wonderful long weekend getaway. A very reasonable price for such a beautiful natural escape. Eric and Marshall ensured our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed, even finding a highchair and pack-n-play for us to use while we stayed. Above and beyond -- in all regards! Thank you!
tranquility and reflection 2018-2019
This historical home has so much character. Peaceful surroundings on the entire property, including an amazing cove to explore. Spending the last week of 2018 and bringing in the New Year the first couple of days of 2019 in this home was just what "the Doctor" ordered. (Belle in spirit). Spending most of my time staring at the tide out the wood pane wavy glass windows while working on a 1500 piece puzzle was the best way to relax. Sunsets were spectacular and standing far out during the low tide with the seagulls singing in the evening as the sun goes down is such a treat. Deer roaming thru the yard in the mornings. The "old house" smell sets you back in time and you are drawn into the lifestyle of the early 1900's. The furniture, the old wood floors, the hats and the old books on the book shelves....... You never want to leave
We loved our stay at Fern Cove. Everything was well taken care of and plenty of dishes, linens, etc.
