Hummingbird Cottage, & Pattie's home on Vashon Island
"A cozy, modern, retreat cabin with a gorgeous expansive view of Quartermaster Harbor and a truly comfortable bed is a wonderful respite from my busy world. Patricia has created a magical little heaven on Vashon Island and I have loved every minute of it." -
A sanctuary to retreat from the world, Hummingbird Cottage is nestled in the woods of Vashon Island and facing a view of Quartermaster Harbor. It is a place where you can take refuge and reconnect with your spirit, ignite your creativity, or simply rest and relax.
I experienced three days of personal Bliss at the Hummingbird Cottage with Pattie as my change agent. With no agenda but the idea of expanding my toolbox and allowing me to discover a more passionate, creative part of me, I left there feeling stronger, healthier and less encumbered with old thoughts and patterns. Waves of change happened in this magical place with Pattie's mentoring and guidance. So many gratitude. - Stephanie
Imagine yourself sitting on the Fauntleroy ferry sailing upon the magical waters of the Puget Sound. As you slowly make your way to the Isle of Vashon, you find yourself crossing over into a world of meditative sanctuary that has been waiting for you to arrive.
I was warmly and graciously welcomed home to The Hummingbird Cottage, an oasis that allowed me to drop into a place of tranquility. Patti, my host, and sweet Nevin her wonderful canine companion, are the guardians of the cottage. Pattie has taken every detail into consideration when it comes to creating a place of comfort and tranquility. When I walked into the cottage I was immediately transported into a safe haven.
I was lucky to experience the cottage on a very stormy night. The space was warm and cozy and invited me to melt into the very comfortable bed with a hot cup of tea. I was soothed to sleep listening to the rain on the roof and the wind in the trees. I felt as though I was in a cocoon.
Breakfast was amazing. The best scrambled eggs I have ever had. Pattie is a master in creating culinary delights. YUM!!!
A morning of doing art was included in my stay. I painted and glued and laughed and played. I felt like a kid in a candy store, free to create anything my heart desired. My masterpiece became part of Pattie’s collection of visitor’s work.
Long walks, quiet respites, rejuvenating naps, nourishing food, exhilarating art making, beautiful accommodations were all ingredients of a wonderful stay with Pattie and Nevin at the Hummingbird Cottage on Vashon Island.
Thank you Pattie!
