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 Kansas

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.

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our annual Sister's Weekend at your rental. My sisters, our daughters and daughter-in-laws and granddaughters celebrate together and enjoy a long weekend of wine, bagels and companionship. This rental is super easy to get to and once there, it is a lovely spot to spend a relaxing weekend. The house is very clean, well stocked with essential items and they take care of the little details that sometimes are not done in a rental.

We will definitely rent again when we stay in the Wichita area! Thanks!!!

The property was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The house was secluded enough to feel like we were miles from anywhere but close enough to the city when we wanted to get out.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience for our family reunion! My grandsons still talk about wanting to go to the Andover house. The home is clean, peaceful,spacious, not far from the grocery store or the wonderful Andover Y for swimming at the water park. The owners are gracious and so helpful in meeting your needs for accommodations.As a special touch our family name was placed near the address. A big thank you from our family to Helen and Wendall.I would highly recommend this rental for large families we had 10 people!!

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.
