About this listing
Located on beautiful Anderson Island in the south Puget Sound and accessed by ferry. A great family-friendly place to stay if you want to get away from it all and get back to nature. This room is in a home located on a small working farm.
This space easily sleeps 4 on uncommonly comfortable fold-out beds (seriously - - these are fitted with custom-sized toppers and are uber-comfy!)
Guests have access to a shared bathroom, washer & dryer by request and coffee & toast in the morning.
Interaction with Guests
Guests are encouraged to visit the farm, sample seasonal veggies and berries from the garden and visit our livestock. We have two Australian Shepherds who live in the house as well - - very friendly pups.
Anderson Island has a population of about 1500 year-round residents that 'booms' to 3500 in the summer months. It's a great place to hide away but convenient enough to use as a home base for excursions to Seattle, Tacoma or Olympia. From this property you are a 5 minutes from walking trails, the beach, the lake (great swimming!) and the ferry terminal.
Make sure you check the Pierce County ferry schedule - - our limited sailings make planning your arrival time essential!
Once you're here you'll find that this is a very walkable/bikeable island.
Other Things to Note
This room is on the second floor, so please keep that in mind if mobility is an issue for you or your companions.
If you are bringing a pet with you, we ask that you please disclose that information up front; please understand that dogs will need to stay leashed while outside since we have free-range chickens and sheep. Thanks!
Happy and busy farmer/accountant/mom-of-2 who loves travel, good food, tear-jerker movies and conversations that go to the wee hours. Dave and I love our farm and our home but we also love to immerse ourselves in other cultures and experiences. We want to show our daughters that there is SO much more out there than our own little corner of the world; travel can be hard to carve out of our schedules, so we love the idea of inviting the world to stay with us, even if it's only for a day or three.
