Vashon Island – Bramble House

Even though Vashon is a very short ferry ride from Seattle I had never gone in all the time I’ve lived here. Took a class to get me over there and we decided to make it an overnight trip. Helped that I had read about Bramble House and wanted to check out what the chef was doing. Vashon is so small there are only stop signs and no traffic lights. I had time between the class ending and picking K up from the ferry terminal so did a bit of sightseeing, the lighthouse was the only thing of note to see.

The main town is very small and it was a three minute walk from the lodge over to the house converted into a restaurant. The interior was much more modern than the exterior and while they tables were pretty close together our conversations didn’t affect other tables. The good is quite good and I hope Bramble House survives in an area where finer dining establishments struggle to make it.
