The space

Room "H" has a single bed, small and cozy, with a view out over porch, garden and Quartermaster Harbor.

On the waterfront of outer quartermaster harbor, and built before there were roads on the island Marjesira was once an inn, general store, post office, and one of the Mosquito Fleet steamship stops. Now its main access is a short shell strewn trail past the garden, and a flight of 63 stairs (please take note of this if stairs are a challenge for you). 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. Its east facing covered porch is a favorite place to watch the birds, otters, or the early morning sunlight dancing on the water. The top of Mt Rainer peeks up over Maury island on the other side of the harbor.
The two bathrooms are shared by the quests (one has a large claw-foot tub, the other a shower.) The old floors are creaky and the walls are thin: so light sleepers may find it challenging dependent on the other guests staying at the time.
Located about a mile south of Burton, 4 miles North of the Talequah Ferry, 5 miles south of Vashon town, 10 miles South of the North end ferry to Fauntleroy and Southworth, Marjesira is on the 118 bus line. You could come stay down on Magnolia beach the whole time, or use Marjesira as a base to explore the Island, Tacoma, Seattle, or the extended beauty of the Pacific Northwest mountains and waterways. It is a great place for pre / post hiking ,biking, or kayaking adventures.

The hostess , her dog and outdoor cat live on the premises.
The most common descriptors of those who have spent time at Marjesira : magical, nurturing, healing, (URL HIDDEN) is a great place to gather or to get away. Come experience it for yourself.

This was a beautiful house with great history in an excellent location on the beach. Jacqui accurately describes the House.

Truly magical. This is the kind of place that takes you back to a time when we appreciated old houses, their stories, histories, and the spirit of the place. You can't fake that. A wonderful refuge, out of time, out of the the blur and buzz of life in the 21st century. Advice: Th…

The Marjesira Inn was just lovely! It felt like home and being on the water was just amazing. Jacqui was a great host and I can't wait to return!

This is a great place for some quiet repose. There were people (hosts or their friends) in and out that were very friendly but respected your space. Plan to bring a car if you want to see much of the island!

Great host! I felt very welcomed to the inn. Was everything I needed for a person traveling alone to Vashon.
