- ANDERSON HOUSE, an island landmark built by old "Chicken Billy" Anstett on the pioneer farm of A.S.M. Andersen, is located on Eckenstam Johnson Road at the head of Oro Bay on the south side of Anderson Island. The working farm stands immediately adjacent to Andy's Park and "the fishing hole" at the tide flats. Settled firmly on pasture land which gently slopes down to the bay, and surrounded by almost two hundred acres of wetlands and timber, it is a unique place of warmth and friendliness which appeals to those seeking quiet and relaxation in the famous Puget Sound island region of Washington State. The property is owned and operated by the Randy Anderson family. Grandson of pioneers Elsie and Erik Andersen, Randy and his wife, well known professional artist-designer, B. Anderson, carefully renovated the house to include overnight guest rooms and facilities for informal workshops retreats and small group meetings. Porch lounging offers a view of the unsurpassed beauty of Mt. Rainier and Little Vega Bay with its Blue Heron rookery. Eagles often soar high above the pasture where deer graze, unafraid, among the cows. On the west side of the Island, overlooking the Olympic Mountains, guests are invited to enjoy inspiring walks amidst old growth timber and comb the private secluded beach owned by the family.
