Time slows here. The waterfront house has beautiful wood inside and sits adjacent to the Fern Cove Estuary. It's a great place to explore the Shingle Mill and Baldwin creeks or just sit and watch the birds migrating.
Belle Baldwin became the state’s first female physician in 1912 and features prominently in the study of women in America.
Named a State Historic Landmark, the Belle Baldwin house may be the only known intact example of the residential work of Harlan Thomas, a renowned architect whose buildings are distinguished Seattle landmarks. The Vashon Park District’s ‘green’ restoration process has returned the house to its 1912 glory, creating a relaxing, natural environment that honors the park and the past. And, all this is located on 750 feet of pristine Puget Sound beach. It doesn't get any better than this.
The house has a large living and dining room with the original paned windows facing the shore and Baldwin creek. The three bedrooms (two queens/two twin), one bath house is comfortable for a group of six and provides all household items to assure a comfortable stay.
Guest will have full access to the first floor of the house. The upstairs and basement are off limits.
Guest privacy is treated with utmost respect. Lodgings Manager will be available via phone 24 hours per day.
The Belle Baldwin House is located in Vashon Park District’s Fern Cove Park. The park is open to the public during the day for passive uses such as beach walks and bird watching. Parking is limited so guests to the house are asked to drive to the end of the driveway and park in the carport. This area can only accommodate three vehicles so if you have visitors during your stay, please ask them to park on the road and walk to the house. The house was built in 1912 and fully refurbished in 2008 to provide for weekly rentals to the public.
There is a carport at the end of the drive for guests.
