Tall Clover Farm welcomes you to Little Gemma -- a little slice of heaven on Vashon Island. Cozy, charming, well-appointed, and light-filled, Little Gemma embodies all you need to slow down, relax, and enjoy the rural feel and natural beauty of Vashon. The cabin is tucked away and private, yet centrally located near town, activities and beaches. Vashon is a special place, and Little Gemma welcomes you to discover its magic.

The space
I've created a space that I would want to stay in, that offers a quiet retreat with an eye for detail, and an appreciation of vintage furnishings, fixtures and fine linens. Next to the sink you'll find a toaster, microwave and an electric cordless kettle for brewing tea and coffee, which is provided (the good stuff). A refrigerator sits quietly under the counter. The main cabin shares the deck with the bathhouse, which has a clawfoot tub, pedestal sink, and compost toilet. As compost toilets go this one is a modern one, where you simply sit and go.

Guest access
Little Gemma sits in private glade on the property, not far from where guests park. The walk to the cabin is brief saunter down to a small swale. Guests are welcome to enjoy the property, and explore. Please just respect the plants and animals, and return all gates and deer fences to the closed position.

Other things to note
Somethings to consider:
1. My dog Buddy may be out and about. He is friendly to people, but he prefers to be the only dog on the property.
2. My rooster Rufus crows and is unfamiliar with sleeping in.
3. The toilet is a modern, sanitary composting toilet.
4. The bathroom and shower/tub are in a separate building connected by a wood deck.
5. Little Gemma is known for her low-entry front door. Don't forget to duck if you're a tall drink of water.
6. If you need something, just let me know, and I'll happily oblige.

Location

Vashon, Washington, United States

Centrally located, the cabin enjoys a prime location, rural and private, but still close to Vashon town and the Vashon Center for the Arts. Sitting on close to four acres, the property is home to an orchard, greenhouse, historic farmhouse, small barn and towering trees; and is only 1.5 miles from town and two miles away from Vashon's favorite sandy beach, KVI beach at Point Heyer.

I live in an 1888 farmhouse on a few acres, enjoying countless projects, farm duties, and a bent to grow good food and fine flowers. I embrace the beauty of the bulldog, succumb to the power of pie, worship the peach, contend summer is never long enough and reward my hard work with a nap in the hammock. Join me, and my English bulldog Buddy as our guest in a private cabin on Vashon Island, a sweet spot moored in the middle of Puget Sound, home to the quirky, the kind, and the unabashedly laid back. A stunning ferry ride from West Seattle or Tacoma, Vashon Island is just inconvenient enough to deter the impatient and cultivate the eccentric.
