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.
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
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.
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.
My family and I had a nice stay here. It's part of a creekside community where some of the houses appear to be vacation cabins. It was reasonably quiet, with lots of birds and squirrels running around enjoying all the trees. My son and I had a lot of fun paddling around in the two kayaks they had there, and my wife and I enjoyed sitting in the screened in deck off the bedroom. My son loved sleeping in the loft, though I was very nervous about the possibility that he was going to roll off the edge or through the access hole in the middle of the night. I solved that with a board I had in the car and covered the hole and put one of the extra sleeping mats on it to hold it in place. If you are an anxious parent, or your kids don't like heights the loft won't be of much use for you. The floors were an accurate barometer of the temperature outside, bring slippers if staying in colder months. In fact bring them anyway, the slate floor tiles have some edge height mismatches and it'll save you some stubbed toes. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished, the wood burning stove was an awesome way to stay cozy in the living room, and the deck is a nice place to hang out when the weather is good.
Location was convenient for a quick trip into Andover (11min) or even Wichita(20-25min) for food, entertainment, or shopping. If you get to downtown Wichita, try Doo-Dah's Diner for some of the best diner food you've ever had.
We ate most of our meals at the cabin, the only complaint I had making meals was I wished there was a bigger frying pan and baking sheet, but was able to do what I needed to with just a little extra time. House has full size fridge, but no dishwasher, if that sort of thing bothers you.
Overall a nice place to be for a few days, we all wished we had booked one more night than we had so we could have done some more relaxing there.
We had a very relaxing and wonderful time. We grilled on the BBQ and fished in the river. Everything we needed was available. Owners were very helpful and pleasant. We would definitely love to stay here again.
We spent three nights at the cabin. The Turner's are easy to communicate with and were extremely helpful with the several requests we had. The property is adjacent to another cabin but has a large lawn with the waterway circling around it, promoting the quiet feeling of the outdoors. A highlight of the cabin is the many hang-out nooks with comfortable chairs. The screened-in porch in the back was especially nice.
The bed was great. The grill on the deck is both charcoal and gas--a definite win! (We used both.) They have two kayaks available for use on the waterway. The cabin was bigger than we needed for the two of us.
This is a place I'd recommend to anyone wanting a quiet place to get away from the noise.
This property is rustic but very nice and clean. We were amazed at how good the fishing was - the kids had a blast. It was very peaceful with lots of wildlife. It's also very convenient to Andover shopping with Wichita close by via the Turnpike. The only downside for us was poor cell phone coverage (but then again it forced us to unplug some).
Loved the layout of the cabin and how spacey it was for me and my two boys. It was very nice and hope to go back again here soon.
We had a wonderful time at the Wagon Wheel Ranch! The cabin was more than we expected and it accommodate all of us perfectly. There is nothing we would change at all! The kids had a wonderful time kayaking and even my 5 year old granddaughter got to do it on her own! When the storm came, it gave all of us a chance to sit in the living room and talk about coming back this summer. Taking a morning walk and listening to natures voices (birds and squirrels) was revitalizing. We will come back in a month or two and are recommending the place to our friends and family! I want to give a special thanks to Helen for letting me bring my special babies.
P.S. we did not find the trash bags until we were ready to leave, but there was plenty of plastic bags that we use for the trash, it is not a complaint, just an explanation of why we use grocery bags.
