Anderson Island house description

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.
