The property is beautiful. The stay is something we shall never forget and we will be back. When we arrived the owner, Alma had fresh flowers, a ballon, and a birthday cake. Above and beyond. The home is clean and comfortable. There was 4 of us ladies and we were comfortable and now we all want to come back separately with our husbands. I hope to come back for years to come. I threw away show tickets and didn’t realize it until I returned home. The owners retrieved them for me and I am forever grateful. I didn’t know how to repay them. I realized I could spread the word about this wonderful home and I will come back as much as possible. What a blessing to have discovered this home and the beautiful spirit of this family. The only down side is that I did not meet Alma and give her a hug,

Relaxing and Hospitable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to the Bluebery Cottage. The hosts were extremely kind/hospitable and we enjoyed many of the amenities (fire pit, kayaks, hot tub, etc.) Will consider another stay in the future 🙂

Rustic waterfront cottage with nice finishing touches and useful amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our anniversary stay here! The cottage was warm and inviting. The finishing touches provided by the hosts anticipated the things that made for a comfortable stay. From the unexpected anniversary cake, flowers, and beverages to the flip flops and closet full of robes for the hot tub, it was clear that our hosts are accustomed to treating their customers as special guests. The cottage was squeaky clean and well kept from top to bottom as well. Some of the nicer amenities included were kayaks, a small rowboat, a peddle boat, hot tub, a large deck with a couple of outside seating areas, and a nice outdoor grill. The rural setting is calm and peaceful with the tide coming in and out right at the edge of the yard. A dock leads out on to water when the seasons are suitable, but the water is always conveniently accessible regardless of season from the shore. If your looking for a quiet getaway where the hosts take joy in making your stay a memorable one, you should note this little cottage. At the time of our stay overnight stays were also available when many other rentals had a minimum of two nights. Once you've had an overnight stay, odds are you'll want to come back again when you could stay a few days. Thanks Alma for a pleasant stay!

A paradise!

  • 5 of 5

It's my husband's birthday! We arrived to The Blueberry Cottage with no problems by following our GPS and email directions from Alma.

What a paradise -- beautiful, quiet, clean and peaceful! We travel often and have never gone back to the same place twice. However, this is the 1st place we are thinking about visiting again in the future.

On a side note, we were hoping to stay outdoors longer but we couldn't because it got pretty cold at night, especially when you are not inside that fabulous hot tub. Would have been nice if there was an outdoor heat-lamp to use by the table. Or even better if there were a small campfire pit available! Nothing is more peaceful and romantic than a campfire in a beautiful and quiet environment like this.

About Alma Tramill

This property was owned by our family back in the 1800's bought from William Vaughn himself and sold - (1979). We were able to purchase it back in 2011, 32 years later. Our love for this place is so strong, we wanted to share with others the same opportunities we felt.

Alma Tramill purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Alma Tramill chose Vaughn

The Blueberry cottage (Vaughn Bay) A place where freedom is felt and loved. Watching the magical sunsets, never one duplicated! Free roaming wildlife to watch and share with. The beach is filled with its own life. At low tide watch as the clams bask in the warmth of the sand - a song of their own. The small crabs find refuge under the rocks. With tides high or low it's a world of enchantment, hours of fun and relaxing

What makes this cottage unique

Use the small Dock - launch for your own boat/kayak, or the public launch across the bay.

Available to use: (2) Costco kayaks, row boat, paddle boat, 4 person float fun Island and water slide (in season)
