Anderson Island is truly special and has no public lodging so Four Ewes Ranch was truly a gift. But that it offered adorable farm animals, a very private campsite as well as a easy access one for us with less mobility, well, I am already looking forward to my next stay!
The tail to the meadow site ( think tiny!) has the delicious feeling that very few feet have stepped where you are going before you. Rich greenery are enlivened by the occasional wild rose, foxglove and blackberry plant. The rock ring fire area evokes pioneer days when this island was still wild and hardly visited.
If you opt to stay in the easy-access spot, you have the delightful view of 'the Watchman", a Llama-Alpaca hybrid that keeps his adorable eyes on you. A happy clutch of chickens and ducks toddle about and were quieter than I expected. As a bonus, the hostess has solar fairy lights, a pretty cafe table, a guide to the area and some fresh flowers waiting! And a fire pit and firewood to complete your experience.
