LAKESHORE COTTAGE

Anderson Island House Rental Photos and Description

Two Bedrooms & Loft with sofa bed, and two baths.

A special note to those wishing to rent our home for the 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay, we are not taking any reservations yet until we decide if we are going to go to the Open ourselves. It may be around the first of the year before we decide. Thank you for your understanding.

-----------------------------------

The balance between the serenity of the lake and the coziness of this delightful cottage is an invitation to create some great memories. The cottage is furnished with your comfort in mind, including a leather couch and beds so comfortable you will be reluctant to get out of bed. Your first cup of coffee watching the mist from the lake greet the morning is a special time to be shared with a loved one or a great time for a little solitude.

There's a window bed especially designed for enjoying both the view of the fireplace and a panoramic view of the lake. Great spot for reading or napping.

Friends can sit at the eating bar and supervise the chef or join in the food preparation. Gathering in the dining area with the window seats is a fun experience with room for everyone. Dining on the deck overlooking the lake in the summer is delightful.

There is a bedroom on the main level that includes a sleep number bed that adjusts to your particular comfort level. The linens are Egyptian cotton with comforters to add to your pleasure.

The main level bath includes a shower with a massaging shower head.

Upstairs you will find a comfortable queen bed and a twin with a view of the lake and trees that feel like being in a fantasy treehouse.

In the loft there is a Swedish style sofa that converts to a comfortable queen. There are wicker chairs with plump cushions and an oak table for playing games or writing. If you are in the mood to watch TV or a movie there is a 42' flat screen, satellite and a DVD/VHS player and a collection of movies. Wireless Internet is also available.

The upstairs bath includes a shower and a jetted spa tub for just that little touch of luxury you seek. Thirsty, thick towels add to the experience. Pamper yourself and enjoy a glass of wine with your soak.

The sound of laughter and squeals of delight are the familiar sounds of a lazy summer day. Swimming in the lake or just lounging on a floaty toy are a great way to spend a part of your summer day. Lemonade or cocktails on the deck add to the enjoyment.

The winter months bring their own magic. Sitting by the fire watching the wildlife on the lake, reading that favorite book, or just spending time with family bring special pleasures.

On this little island paradise, it's like stepping back in time to a slower, gentler lifestyle. There's golf to be played, hikes to take, fish to catch, walks, bicycling, lots of exploring, keep your binoculars handy to help identify birds, otters, raccons and other wildlife.

We come to the island from Oregon so a stop at the famous Olympia Farmers Market is often part of our experience. We love stocking up on fresh-from-the-farm vegetables, fruits, meats and fresh seafood. Bright bouquets of flowers often make their way to our shopping bags. A walk along the harbor is also part of our ritual.

Boarding the ferry is always the signal, on so many levels, that we are transitioning from our busy lives to 'island time'. The 20 minute ride is filled with the anticipation of being back on Anderson and to our cottage by the lake. We have furnished it with care for comfort and just a little whimsy to delight our guests. Anderson Island is close to Seattle and all it has to offer, yet a world away. The island is peaceful, has a real sense of community, and abundant natural beauty. A haven to re-balance and refresh one's life. Please be our guest and enjoy your time on the island.

Terry purchased this house in 2010

Anderson Island is unique among Puget Sound islands. Life on island moves at a slower pace and very family friendly. In summer there is boating, swimming fishing hiking and biking.

In winter it is extremely quiet and so relaxing to sit by the wood fireplace and look out at the lake and watch the waterfowl and bald eagles that frequent the lake.

Anderson Island is a place to relax and enjoy family time or couple time.

Early morning solitude watching the lake, having that first cup of coffee and hearing the house come to life as friends and family wake to the day's adventures is a favorite time.

Catch a trout or bass without leaving the yard. (requires WA fishing licence)

GREAT FAMILY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The Lakeshore Cottage was a great place for our entire family. The house was very clean and welcoming. We had ample room for our family of 5. Terry was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. We had a great time swimming in the lake, enjoying the beautiful view, and barbequing on the deck. We will definitely be coming back!

NICE VIEW, BUT HOUSE TOO CLUTTERED

  • 2 of 5
We found the property to be cluttered with too much furniture, the kitchen too cluttered with little work space and every cupboard filled so that there was literally no place to store our groceries for a week's stay. It would have also been nice to havea TV set on the main living level instead of having to go upstairs for access into the "3rd bedroom".

Owner's Response: We appreciate the helpful comments. We would like to address some of Patricia's concerns. As far as clutter in the house, we have never had that complaint in over 3 years of renting our home. The pictures on our website are accurate showing the furniture placement in each room. All potential renters should look at these pictures and assess if that is too much clutter for them.

It is a balancing act to keep a well equipped kitchen for up to 7 people and have empty cabinets. For our long stay guests, we open our utility room where there are two storage racks with multiple shelves. There is usually space for non-perishables on several shelves for guests staying for a week or more. On reflection, there may have been some newspapers in sacks on two shelves that might have taken that space. We keep some of our non-perishables in a locked cabinet in the kitchen. After reading this review, we will move our non-perishables to the utility room and leave the space in the kitchen we normally use, for our guests. This should solve the problem for kitchen storage of food.

We have never had a complaint about kitchen working space. There is a space about 6 feet long and 3 feet wide for meal preparation in addition to space between the stove and sink. Perhaps our guest’s groceries were in the large space and it became a problem?

With the many families that stay in our cottage, they appreciate having the TV upstairs where the kids are not underfoot. Most of our guests come to Anderson Island for the solitude and peace that Anderson Island provides. Having a TV on the lower level of the house, too, would take away from that.

We appreciate the comments. This helps us make our home even more accommodating for our guests. Moving our food into the utility room so that our guests, who are staying for a short or long stay, will have a large storage cabinet for their food in the kitchen will be a great improvement and something we should have thought of long ago! Thank you, Patricia, for bringing this to our attention.

We are always looking for ways to make our home a better experience for our guests.

HALL FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
For our reunion, each family group rented a different cottage. Each cottage had its own charm, and we visited each other over the weekend to see the other places. Everyone agreed THIS cottage was the best; larger than many, charming, comfortable. Others had larger decks, or more dramatic views, or more commodious gardens, but without a doubt OUR family group will come back to Lakeshore Cottage for the next reunion. There was every convenience in the kitchen (great cooking pans, appliances, serving ware etc). There were even bath salts for the upstairs bathroom, and the tub there had jets! and a can of "Off" on the table by the front door, although mosquitoes were not bad (I am from Minnesota, and I know mosquitoes). The cottage was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable, the typed instructions left around the house were clear (how to operate the VCR, how to access the internet, etc).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We have tried to create a first-class environment that is wonderful for us when we visit our vacation home and believe our guests would appreciate the same thing. Our guests show their appreciation by caring for our home in the way we would like it treated. It has been a great win-win situation for over 3 years and counting!

SERENE BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was "a touch of heaven". The listing photos accurately reflect the wonderful view of the lake. The owners have done an amazing job creating a cozy and inviting cottage. Everything was very well maintained, clean and perfectly organized for guests. Owner was very responsive, did a great job of communicating necessary details and made us feel very welcome. Loved kayaking on the lake - perfect place for R&R. We highly recommend it!

GREAT PLACE FOR RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
The owner was great and very helpful throughout the process. Great communication and gave us a lot of information of things to see and do around the area. The cottage was excellent with great amenities. It was a home away from home with all the luxuries. The view of the lake was beautiful and we had excellent weather. My family really enjoyed themselves. Thanks! Todd
