Vashon Island

To come down the trail, stairs, and walk through the doors of Marjesira, is to step back in time. Over a hundred years old, it maintains a charm and rustic elegance in a craftsman style. You will see the remnants of a time before; fixtures from the gas settling lamps still adorn the walls. The dock, now shorter, was once a stop for the Mosquito Fleet steamships that served Vashon-Maury island. Oriented toward the waters of Outer Quartermaster Harbor,and a registered Historical Landmark, it was built before there were roads, and functioned as an inn, general store, and post office. Now Marjesira’s main access is a shell strewn path past the garden and a flight of 63 stairs (please take note of this if stairs are a challenge for you).
