About the property

Sleeps 6, additional fee of $15/person over 6

Take time to relax and enjoy this wonderful A-frame for a few days on Anderson Island. Located in a relaxing setting on quiet Lake Josephine. Whether it is for a few days or a week or more, the house is set up for fun and relaxation. It is designed for community but has places to retreat for quiet as well. There is plenty to do including games, walks, boating, swimming, golf and more. Just a few blocks from tennis courts, a playground and a swimming hole on Lake Florence, there is something for everyone to do.

Anderson Island is the southernmost of Puget Sound's islands. It is a small wooded island encircled by 14 miles of beachfront. It contains two freshwater lakes. Located just a 20-minute ferry ride from Steilacoom, Anderson Island maintains a rural feel. It is not uncommon to see deer or raccoons in the yard, eagles in the trees and beavers in the lake. Anderson Island is known for its Huckleberry season--wild plants abound throughout the Island.

The house is a 2000+ square foot A-frame ideally located. You can easily walk to the general store, coffee shop and the golf course and the restaurant. It has a loft with a king bed and a full bath. On the main floor are 2 bedrooms (one with 2 twins and the other with a queen bed), open living area with the kitchen, dining room and living room, a stone fireplace, and a full bath. The basement has a third full bath and a large common area, laundry facilities, mud room and a wood stove. All linens provided. Well stocked kitchen.

Lake Josephine is a quiet lake. Motor boats are not allowed, but water skiing is allowed on nearby Lake Florence. Electric motors (no more than 5 miles/hour) can be used on Lake Josephine, but it is mostly used for canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking and row boats. There is a paddle boat, canoe and row boat on the property

Very fun place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very old fashioned fancy. Lots of "stuff" included. No A/C, but ceiling fans and other fans throughout the house helped keep cool. All in all, a very nice stay!

It was ALL there - quiet and relaxing - close to all activities of Island life.

  • 5 of 5

Huge, clean and bright three level home on the lake with every item furnished except cable TV and that was a blessing. I will consider staying here in the future.

Wonderful get away

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this house so much! It was a delight to see the wonderful view in the morning and throughout the day. Feels private, but not too secluded. The owners provide lots of water toys to get out and enjoy the lake. One small request would be for a bit easier access to the water. Overall this was a pretty perfect getaway for my family.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time at your house. It is well laid out for lots of comfort. Loved the dining room table! A throw back to the 70's. We sat for hours and visited and played games at that table and chairs. It just calls you to relax and enjoy your dinner and family/friends. My son used the row boat and fished every morning. We all swam from the Riviera dock right next to your property. My husband trimmed all the bushes back on the trail. The lake was so beautiful and peaceful to be near. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our house. Our family loves extended game times at the table. Lots of great conversations have happened there. And, thank-you for trimming the trail. We often go down to the dock from the trail from the road, so we don't always keep the one by the lake cut back.

Clean home with a great lake view

  • 3 of 5

Very well stocked huge kitchen that 5 people worked in it at once. All it needed was new towels & potholders. If 1 person was in the kitchen early in the morning it woke up people on all 3 floors. It could use a door to the basement & thicker doors to the 2 main floor bedrooms to help with the noise spreading.

Outdated TV needs to be replaced. Tight parking area made it very difficult for a van to turn around to get out of the driveway.

Had fun in the canoe with paddles from the shed.
