Interaction with guests
We respect the privacy of our guests and do not enter their house during occupancy; however, when not traveling, we are available twenty-four hours a day to answer questions and meet the needs of our guests. And often I invite our guests to enjoy afternoon coffee or tea with home baked fruit delicacies from our orchard which surrounds us at The Dell. The Dell is short for our compound know as Rhododendron Dell on Anderson Island, WA.
The natural beauty of our neighborhood is awesome!
You have to see it for yourself! More photos coming soon.
Bicycle riding and walking are favorites of some guests. While boating, canoeing & kayaking are for everybody's enjoyment while exploring the Island's shores.
The ferry landing is a short one block walk up the beach.
The ferry ride is twenty minutes from Steilacoom.
The Metro Bus service, which picks up at the ferry, serves the entire South Sound area including, Steilacoom, Lakewood, Tacoma and the surrounding area. Bus service from the ferry dock to Shopping Malls and to Seattle for Seahawk and Mariner games.

Other things to note

For 25 years I have been pleased to watch my guests at The Dell, short for Rhododendron Dell, enjoy both the beauty of the Northwest, as well as, all the fun of being on an island in the southern part of Puget Sound.
My guests participate in the same outdoor seasonal activities that my family and I enjoy while on the island: golfing, all forms of fishing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing, paddle and motor boating, hiking, biking, and swimming in fresh water lakes, beach combing, bonfires and more.
I have been blessed with many returning quests year after year; and, I always look forward to meeting new guests because I know what a wonderful experience they will have on Anderson Island in the Evergreen State of Washington, especially at The Dell.
