We have traveled extensively as a military family. Now that we are settled on Anderson Island we look forward to hosting other adventure bound travelers. Family is important to us, so we welcome those needing some down time from the busyness of their regular schedules. We will try to accommodate each family so that you too can find the wonder of this beautiful place. I like to walk my yellow lab, Carley, cook for friends and family, and garden. Our family includes four adult children and spouses, and four grandchildren that love to come to the island for a visit and ride on Papa's tractor.
Beth Kobernik purchased this cabin in 1985
This home was built in the 70's by Kurt and Betty Kobernik. They have family stories of the early days when the golf course was just being built, and theirs was the only house on the street. Tim was in High School at the time and helped his parents on weekends digging, carrying lumber, and learning carpentry skills from his father. Kurt and Betty sold the small 800 sq ft cabin to Tim and his new wife Beth in 1985. Throughout his military career, Tim and Beth called Anderson Island their 'home of record' and their 4 children grew up calling Anderson Island home, even though they never lived on the island full-time. Our family spent 12 years overseas, and I would hear the children tell people who questioned us, 'we are from Anderson Island!' While overseas, Beth's parents retired and decided to move to the island, and chose our little cabin for their permanent location. They oversaw a huge remodel for us, and the 'little cabin' grew by 600 sq. ft. Once retired, Tim and Beth returned to the island to begin the second half of their lives. We built our own family home close to the ferry dock, and now we use the 'little cabin' for our guest home, it is great for overflow of family and also great as a vacation rental for other adventure bound families. Tim's parents, Kurt and Betty, now live with us, and Beth's parents, Cliff and Betty, live just 5 minutes nearby. Anderson Island has become residence to three generations of Koberniks, and the fourth generation comes for the holidays. We love this piece of tranquility in South Puget Sound.
