Perfect cabin on a beautiful piece of river front property

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our reunion. The house was well equipped and there are plenty of comfy beds for a group. The property is so gorgeous and if the weather is nice the firepit is a great place to hangout.

Thanksgiving at Brakenfern Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We were able to spend five days over our Thanksgiving Break and had a wonderful time. The location of this cabin is perfect. The Salmon River is beautiful. We appreciated the well appointed kitchen with all the pots, pans and utensils needed for a special Thanksgiving dinner. Our adult children and grandchildren are all in favor of another vacation here. Thank you!

Weekend at Brackenfern

  • 4 of 5

This mountain house has a lot to offer and is in a fantastic location, right on the banks of the Salmon River. Less than an hour from Portland makes it an easy getaway. Despite steady rain in late October, our crew took a couple of hiking routes along and over the Salmon. The house itself is well equipped with all you needed in the kitchen and linen on beds and in the bathrooms. In better weather we would have spent more time outside in the huge yard and down on the river. There were benches, fire pits, horse shoes and volleyball and soccer as options. We had six in our crew, but noted the upstairs bedroom was big and had six queen or double beds available. We recommend it. DGN

Cozy house in Welches!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend celebrating my dad's birthday at Brakenfern Lodge. It has plenty of space for two families and two bathrooms is a plus. My extended family rented the Trillium so we had the entire property. Worked great as we could have nice dinners, play games, etc and still have our own houses. Enjoyed walking to the river, skiing, and using the hot tub.

Will definitely stay again!

Just the right place for us.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house to escape our own house while we were without a kitchen and industrial dryers we going around the clock while the results of a pipe leak in our kitchen dried out. We prefer older quirky homes to sleek new one, and this one fit that bill perfectly. Our dogs had plenty of space inside and out. I loved taking them for walks around the property. My family skiied both days while stayed at the house and got heaps of studying done. Everyone was happy. We will return.

Cozy Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Brakenfern Lodge was a darling rustic cottage, just a mile from the conveniences of Welches' restaurants and grocery store. We loved the bunk room, as all the kids slept in one room and each adult couple had a cozy king bed. The kitchen was well appointed, with nearly every appliance/tool you could want (though we couldn't find a can opener.) The hot tub was very nice to enjoy after a long day of skiing.

It's not fancy, but the price is right. It's clean and well furnished, and the location can't be beat. The wi-fi was hit and miss, so don't count on getting lots of business work done while here. That's the point: unplug!
