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.

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!

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

This location is such an awesome place, I could probably live there! We were taken aback by how beautiful the back yard is. It is a park like setting on the river and wished we wouldn't have planned to go and do mountain activities during the day as we could have stayed at the house and played yard games. The advertisements don't do this place justice! It was the perfect picturesque 'cabins in the woods' and everyone had a great time! Thank you so much for opening this beautiful place up to the general public. It is an experience we won't forget!
