My husband and I visit Vashon Is. WA several times a year from CA to visit relatives and the Artist's Studio Loft is our choice for our stay on the island. The beautiful rooms & gardens make for a wonderful, peaceful get away. Jacqueline, our hostess, has always been so helpful & thoughtful. We will be back.

Even prettier in person. Tranquil & serene, private -- your own peacefully lovely retreat! Jacqueline built herself a paradise and welcomes you in with both arms.

This setting was not only beautifully kept, but very comfortable and relaxing. The setting was tranquil. The location was easy to find and close to town but still situated so that you felt wonderfully far from it all. The gardens are amazing and would make a lovely setting for a wedding or family get together. We would definitely stay again.

This was an impulsive outing. We called Jacqueline at the last minute on Friday night. She called back immediately and put us up for the night. The B&B is charming, in a beautiful natural setting, and Jacqueline is a gracious hostess!
