Point Robinson Lighthouse is located a short ferry ride from Seattle on the eastern side of Maury Island (Vashon Island). One of the more easily accessible lighthouses on Puget Sound, Point Robinson has great views, a driftwood-lined beach and walking trails to accompany the two keeper's accommodations.
Be a keeper at Point Robinson. The island's own lighthouse station offers weekend and week-long stays in the two renovated keepers' quarters. The residences share the beach with the lighthouse and other features of the historic light station. Both accommodations are available for weekly rental through the year and offer groups of up to six adults a wonderful way to enjoy the beach, the Sound and the islands of Vashon and Maury. The Light House area is surrounded by a wooded park, the sandy shore is home to a host of water birds and the shipping lanes are alive with colorful vessels of all shapes and sizes. All this is visible from the front porches of both historically renovated Keepers' Quarters.
The Keepers' Quarters A at is a modest three bedroom, two-bath, two-story bungalow perched near the lighthouse on the shore of Puget Sound. The house, renovated to evoke its 1919 construction period, is completely furnished and accommodates up to six people. The kitchen is complete for cooking and dining. The living room, furnished in country comfort, opens to the panorama of Puget Sound and basks in morning sun. Keepers' Quarters B is a two-bedroom, one bath, completely furnished unit with a full kitchen and sitting parlor. This bungalow has been historically restored and can accommodate up to four people. A 15-minute drive into Vashon Town provides shopping, restaurants and a movie theatre, as well as local festivals, a farmers' market, a large playground at Ober Park, and more.
