WELCOME TO WHISPERING PINES

Anderson Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Paradise. Set in a secluded, wooded location within walking distance of Lake Josephine on beautiful Anderson Island, Whispering Pines is a spacious and private two bedroom, one bath home.

Rustic in style, the large living room has a Schrader woodstove and lots of comfortable seating, with ample room to play games, watch movies, or just relax and look out the picture windows on either side.

You can also enjoy the 377 square foot back deck with seating for 12.

Whispering Pines has been designed to appeal to all of your senses. The large & sunny, gourmet kitchen is fully equipped, including a hand cranked pasta maker, & an electric bread machine and mixes.

Look in all the cupboards to discover a crock pot, electric skillet, blender, and lots of little extras everywhere you look. There are even cloth tablecloths and napkins for your use. Take a weekend to pamper yourself! We'll supply the necessities.

Gaze through the kitchen's large bay window to the back deck and the frequent sight of a doe and her fawns walking through.

Enjoy the owner's eclectic touches through-out the house, from the silver wire and polished stone window art to the interesting collection of books to read: Westerns, mysteries, and more, mixed with Doonesbury and Dilbert.

The extensive video & DVD collection ranges from Classics to Indiana Jones to The Three Stooges. We have many family friendly movies.

There are several games, cards, poker chips as well as several jigsaw puzzles to try your skill and patience!

In the summer months, the back deck is a wonderful spot to entertain with it's propane grill and wrought iron dining set. You are welcome to relax with a book in the sitting area under the trees at the other end of the deck.

On cold days make soup in the Crock pot and settle down in front of the wood stove to watch movies or play games.

Coziness and an attention to detail together with the serene wooded setting make Whispering Pines a favorite choice for families, couples or honeymooners who want a romantic getaway.

This could become your own special Get away place.

Experience Whispering Pines just once and you will want to come back every year! (Many people do!)

When it's time to relax in the hot tub, check out the thick bathrobes in the master bedroom closet. On your way outside to the tub, look next to the sliding glass door to see shelves with thick towels and flip flops.

The house includes the use of the washer and dryer. Also in the laundry room, are all the supplies you'll need to attract the birds, deer, and squirrels. We have suet cakes (holders already hanging in the apple tree), bird seed and wild life food for the deer.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Just wanted to drop a note and thank You again for letting us stay at the Cabin. We had a wonderful stay. The only thing that would have made it better, was to have more time. We got up early Sunday am to enjoy the Hot Tub and shared the crisp morning air with a large doe and her fawn. They had no fear of us at all as they wandered around the yard eating the left over birdseed. Once we finally pulled ourselves out of the tub, we took off for the beach. We walked one of the trails down, about a half mile, then over the boardwalk to the secluded beach. Reachable only by the trail or Kayak, it was beautiful, quiet and serene. It was so hard to believe that our hectic life was just a ferry ride away... and unfortunatly waiting. We are so looking forward to our next trip , and hope that we will be able to stay here again. We have rented many Cabins/Homes thru VRBO , but I must say with all honesty, we have never found one better maintained or welcoming. Thanks again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hot tub is top of the line! The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils needed including condiments offered for guests use. The house was very peaceful with awesome seclusion. We absolutely fell in love with the island itself and cannot wait to come back. Ruth Ann was very easy to get in touch with and quickly responsive to all my emails. We would love to return to whispering pines!

A very quaint cabin in a peaceful setting with nice amenities. We especially enjoyed the deck off the back with the BBQ and hot tub. We would stay here again and recommend it to our friends and family. The owner was also very accommodating.

Dean & Ruth Ann;Well, I finally cleared off my desk enough to find the Whispering Pines brochure that I left out to remind myself to write you.When we stayed at your place on July 9th & 10th, we rushed out the door at the last minute, deciding to take an earlier ferrythan originally planned. To that end, we did not write in your book and leave our thanks and comments. That is not like us, and I would like to say now that we not only thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, but we will assuredly be back, perhaps with friendsthe next time. Feeding the birds and deer and generally enjoying an island that appears, at least, fairly unspoiled, was second onlyto the fresh bread and the really excellent hot tub. We have tubbed for years until recently when we sold our house and the tub with it.We are planning on building and your style hot tub will be in the budget…at the top of the list. Thanks to Barbara, again, for coming out so lateto help us with the instructions that for some reason mystified us.You really seemed to think of everything, and your home provided us with a great escape. Thanks again; Jer & Dode H.
