I got to tell ya this is one of the nicest finds on Vashon. We've stayed in other places when visiting the island, but was always looking for something better. The Quartermaster Inn is a great little place that accommodated our needs. When staying at the Inn you have a few choices of rooms depending on family size and your...

We just returned from a stay at the Marina property under the auspices of the Quartermaster Inn, but located at the Burton Marina. It's not a B&B, it's just a lodging. But what a lovely find! The suite is clean, spacious, tastefully decorated, airy, and has a well equipped small kitchen. It looks out onto a mirror-calm bay. The only...

We spent a week at the Quartermaster Economy room and expected some limitations, e.g. the outside shared bathroom. The bedroom was adequate, but the lighting was uncomfortably dim. The outside bathroom was an expected inconvenience for the price. The biggest problem was lack of television access for three of the seven days and lack of concern about it. After a...

We attempted to give folks a reasonable rate on Vashon Island with our economy room it delivered what it advertised "economy" It was a dark downstairs room with no tv and no real amenities. After this review we decided to no longer offer this space. Thanks for taking the time to let us know.

We spent a week in two and a half bedroom house that Troy and Marie have for rent, we didn't stay at the Inn itself. The house is called Captain's Quarters and you can find it on their website. We had a great time. It's beautifully located right across from the marina in Burton, with a priceless view from the...

It wasn't for the best of reasons to visit Vashon Island, but after checking into our room at the Quartermaster Inn we loved the room, the kitchen and the deck looking out to the harbor. Troy was quick to call us back to confirm our details and to fill us in about the area. We will be back for a...

No kidding. The above title is the promo logo pushed by the local merchants selling bumper stickers and coffee cups. What we thought was a cozy quaint island turned out to be a place that could use a good cleanup. Evidently once the junk hits the island, it stays there. Not sure why people can't at least try to hide...

After reading the reviews, I was afraid of what this week end would be like. We had a wonderful week end. We stayed in the Outer quartermaster room and it was a fine room. We used the living social coupon that was given to us for Christmas from our children. The food for dinner and breakfast was excellent. Troy and...

On the plus side the breakfast was tasty. Your comfort seems directly tied to which room you are in. The rooms at either end of the hallway are larger and have better beds. The small rooms in the middle don't have the same amenities. Our bed was one of the most uncomfortable we have ever "slept" in, not much sleeping...

This was a Christmas gift from my other half and I didn't have a lot of time to spend so we found this place not far for us to enjoy. The room was very comfortable and with a little view of the bay. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. We enjoyed the owner and other guest. This place is more of...

We researched this B&B on TripAdvisor and were prepared for some of the potential kinks mentioned by other reviewers. After staying there, we really liked the place. It's quaint and oldish but didn't feel run down to us at all. It's close to the island's busiest road (hardly a major highway :)) and has a limited water view, but it's...

“The room rates were the same with the Living Social deal, but on their website the "harbor" rooms cost a bit more. But after taking a quick look at all the rooms when we arrived, it didn't seem like there was that big of a difference between different rooms.”
