About Helen Turner or Wendell Turner

I was raised in the Wichita area Rose Hill small sub of Wichita. Helen from Florida & I married in 1972, raised three children, have nine grandkids. Have lived in the same area for the past 36 years. I have a metal art studio and travel to different shows all around the country.

Helen Turner or Wendell Turner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Helen Turner or Wendell Turner chose Andover

We raised our family in the same area, wanted a get away feel home but close to Wichita. We acquired a couple of properties over the years. We've had families stay in our houses for 5 to 8 years.

What makes this cabin unique

The surroundings by its self is unique, you feel like you are really far from any town but at the same time only 10 minutes from Wichita. You can watch the stars at night if you are a star gazer. Keep an eye out for and listen for the owls. Foxes roam, along with the squirrels and occasional possum, armadillo. It’s easy to come and stay but very hard with much regrets to leave.

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

The living area was large and allowed our family to be together. The property is easy access to Augusta, Andover and Wichita. The only negative was no WiFi, otherwise perfect!!

Clean, well-designed, cabin in the woods--yet close to everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

With two little ones in the family, we were able to let them sleep in one bedroom while we adults enjoyed visiting in the living area--and we didn't have to whisper! The kitchen was well-supplied, and the appliances were in great shape. The beds were comfortable and plentiful.

The house is located on a private ranch with approximately 60 residents. The ranch was a private getaway to retreat from the busy city. It developed into a private home development. It has a small non moving water way lined with large trees that menders to Santa Fe Lake which is approximately 600 acres. Most of the houses are built along the river with most having a pontoon boat or canoe to navigate the river. Makes for a very lazy day for pontooning.The ranch, has over 3 miles of private roadway much of it is single lanes, with hills great for a walk, jog, biking. Could take a trip to the new state of the art Andover YMCA, day passes can be purchased at the Y. Have indoor pool, rock climbing wall , racquetball, basketball courts many other activities. Can't say enough about being close to Wichita. Plenty of shopping, sports events, restaurants, theaters.
