Anderson Island Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 13, Puget Sound Waterfront Estate

Welcome to Anderson House

Anderson House at Oro Bay is a vacation rental home located on Anderson Island in the south Puget Sound region of Washington State. Nearby cities include Olympia, Seattle, Tacoma, Gig Harbor, Lakewood and Steilacoom. It is about a 2.5 hour drive from Portland, Oregon.

A short 20 minute ferry ride from Steilacoom on the mainland, Anderson Island is a wonderful retreat from everyday cares without the crowds of other Puget Sound islands. The Steilacoom ferry terminal is approximately 32 miles south of SeaTac International Airport.

Anderson House is owned by the Randy Anderson family, descendents of early Island pioneers Elsie & Erik Andersen. It was previously operated as a Bed and Breakfast Inn, and has been featured in Northwest Best Places, as well as Sunset and Puget Sound magazines.

This historic waterfront Scandinavian style farmhouse has a unique and peaceful setting on 20.86 acres, overlooking Oro Bay. The house has been completely renovated and updated in classic farmhouse style. Each room offers tranquil bay, garden or pastoral views. The expansive front porch is an ideal place to enjoy the view, read a book or rock your cares away as bald eagles soar above the tall fir trees and the bay. A private dock provides access to kayaks and small boats at high tide. The property features expansive flower and vegetable gardens. Cows can be seen grazing lazily in the adjacent pastures or next to the picturesque barn.

Anderson House is the ideal location for families and friends to gather for special occasions. It has been used for small business seminars, and creative retreats. Anderson House and property are not available for weddings or large parties of any kind. Children with adult supervision are welcome. No pets, no smoking and no RV parking or camping is allowed on the property. Our caretaker lives in the home adjacent to the property, should guests have questions during their stay.

The House sleeps a maximum of 13 people. Overnight guests are restricted to no more than 13 people. No more than 25 people are allowed on the property at any time.

The first floor of the house offers a formal living room with a wood burning fireplace and satellite TV / DVD player; a large farm style kitchen; a formal dining room with seating for 13; a den with two twin “toe to toe” beds, TV and attached full bathroom; a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer; and a powder room. The home is equipped with wireless Internet access and a land-line telephone for local calls.

The second floor has four queen size bedrooms, each with their own attached full bathroom (3 with shower, 1 with tub). One bedroom also has a twin daybed for sleeping.

The third floor playroom has one double bed with a half bathroom.

The bright kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, dishes, glassware, pots and serving dishes. Appliances include a Subzero refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, gas & halogen cook top stove, microwave and electric convection oven. The large, round breakfast table seats 6, and is a great place to hang out and keep busy cooks company. Conveniently located outside the kitchen is a gas grill for barbecuing.

Anderson House is owned by the Randy & Bettymae Anderson family, descendents of early Island pioneers Elsie & Erik Andersen. Randy grew up spending his summers on the Island working on the original family homestead farm. Bettymae became enchanted with the Island upon her first visit back in 1946 and as Randy puts it, 'I was not sure if it was me or the Island she loved more!'

Erin Anderson McClun purchased this farmhouse in 1985

Bettymae,an accomplished artist and writer, restored the home and gardens completely in 1985. It was formerly operated as a Bed and Breakfast Inn and served as a base for many creative endeavors. The Anderson Family is now happy to offer the entire home for other families and friends to enjoy.

Anderson Island is truly a hidden gem in the Puget Sound. Anderson House is a perfect place to restore ones spirit and creativity, connect with friends and celebrate family.

The private, old growth timber hiking trail leads to the beach for beach combing, clam digging or, what else – picnics!

Anderson House is adjacent to well-designed Anderson Island Park trails that allow hikers to cross the Island and explore beaches both on the west and east sides of the Island. The sleepy Island roads are ideal for bicycling or long walks. Golf privileges are available to our guests at the Island nine-hole Riviera Country Club. The Tacoma and Oro Bay Yacht clubs are located just across Oro Bay from Anderson House. Swimming is available at “the Ole Swimming Hole” park located on Lake Josephine, one of two fresh water lakes on the Island. There are tennis and volleyball courts, as well as playground facilities on the Island. Massage services are available on the Island.

The Anderson Island Historical Society’s “Johnson Farm Museum” is a wonderful place to visit and get a feel for Island life and its early pioneers. It is host to the annual Salmon Bake, summer band concerts, autumn Apple Squeeze and various lectures throughout the year.

Groceries and general goods are available at the Island General Store. Dining is offered at the Lakeshore Restaurant and the Island Coffee Shop. Catering services are available on the Island.
