Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Vacation with out having to do anything but relax. Take long walks, get back to nature, kids really enjoy being outdoors fishing, running around without worrying about cars .

Keywords: Waterfront cabin 10 miles east of Wichita, just off of I-35, exit #57 on the Kansas Turnpike (Andover area). Cabin over looks the Indianola waterway on two sides, surrounded by large trees. Cabin was completly updated 2010. Living room has a wood stove to sit around and visit with friends, cozy up to a good book or watch a movie. Furnished with a queen sofa sleeper and a loft that can sleep up to three young children (3 twin mattress) just like 200 years ago. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a sitting area that can be divided into another sleep area just of the screened in porch overlooking the water. What a place to have a drink, watch a sunset or maybe a fisherman work the water.

The kitchen is well equipped, with concrete countr tops and bar, off to the side a romantic dinning area with a great view of the waterway.

About Helen Turner or Wendell Turner

Helen and I married in 1972 , raised 3 children, now have 9 grand children. We travel a lot ourselves all throughout the crountry going to art showes to sell our metal art work.

Helen Turner or Wendell Turner purchased this cabin in 1987

Why Helen Turner or Wendell Turner chose Andover

We raised our family in the same area, wanted a get away from the city but yet close enough for dinners out, theaters, music concerts and shopping. The cabin is close to Wichita but close to nature.

What makes this cabin unique

It's quite, you can see all kinds of wild life (making for good pictures). Canoeing (great exerise) taking a pontoon trip down stream. Beautiful large trees (great picture taking). Fishing off your pier. like going to the movies no cell phone needed.

Notes:
Cabin sets on a private ranch with over two miles of tree covered roadways for walking or you can find lots of trails off the path for an adventures walk with nature. Take a lazy float down the Indianola by canoe paddling from shade tree to shade tree, maybe do a little fishing on your way, but again you could bring your boat and float down the river into a nice lake for a morning of skiing than back out in the evening for a night of star qazing all from your boat. Privat beach and fishing avaliable.

Great location, one hangup that is a plus or a minus (depending)

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location and the view is very pretty. The house is quaint inside, well made up and if you aren't claustrophobic and willing to sleep in the upper bunks could sleep several. Bed is comfortable, bathroom is good, and location is very out of the way.

There is one minus: bringing cell phones I was unable to get any reception (AT&T or Sprint) beyond 1 bar. Often could not get SMS/TXT or any data (Period). This would be managable, except the fact the house also has no WiFi, so pretty much, if you are here you are cut off from the outside world.

That could be a great perk, but admittedly, meant for us we did a lot of walking out toward the road where we could get two bars of service to occassionally update our email. (I know, modern world)

Gorgeous Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Everything was so lovely. A beautiful property. Pics do not do it justice. The owners were so very pleasant and professional. This is a secluded property with neighbors but plenty of privacy. There is a huge Dillions Marketplace store about six miles away which was wonderful as we didnt have to travel with our food. Cabin had everything we needed to do our own cooking and live like we do at home. There are restaurants if you want to drive to town. We did not have tv cable or gas grill but I believe it was due to severe weather which preceeded us there- we didnt miss tv and it looked like a gas grill knob was left on- so we bought charcoal instead! The grill has both and was nice. We didn't kayak but they were there and we saw other people canoeing if that interests you. This property is suitable for families and also perfect for a romantic getaway. I hope to visit again soon. It sure didnt feel like Kansas and was similar to upstate NY - so pretty
