Orcas Island Getaway @ Bracken Fern

OVERVIEW:
Orcas Island Getaway @ Bracken Fern
is a great choice for couples, small groups and families. 

Located on a 3/4 acre parcel surrounded by towering native evergreen trees, this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath home manufactured in 2001 was completely remodeled in 2014/2015 and offers great privacy despite being just minutes to town.

The open layout and high ceilings take advantage of the 1,300 square feet, providing a very spacious feel in the home, and bedrooms on opposite sides allow privacy for couples and families. 

You'll enjoy relaxing outside on the rear deck, overlooking the large backyard with landscape lighting during the evenings. The deck features a patio table with six chairs, a Stainless Steel propane BBQ grill and leads to the outdoor Hot Tub to end the day in relaxation.

“We have rented homes all over the US, and this was by far one of the best places we have stayed, and our communication with Todd & Lori goes unmatched. You feel like you are staying in a cozy home rather than a rental. “

Relax and enjoy the many amenities the home affords its guests

While the Island begs you to get out and enjoy nature, sometimes it's nice to just hang out and relax. 

In the living room, you'll find a very comfortable leather sofa & love seat which provides the relaxing atmosphere you're looking for after a day of exploring Orcas Island and its many gems. 

The theme of "Modern Rustic" is carried throughout the home with the details on furnishings and decor, and a neutral palette of earthy tones provide a tranquil environment for you to unwind.

For longer stays, the home also includes a full-sized washer and dryer (with complimentary detergent) should you wish to wash clothes/linens during your stay.

Wi-Fi Access? Yes, and always complimentary for our guests

We also offer complimentary high-speed internet through the Wi-Fi network with reliable service provided by CenturyLink. You'll also enjoy access to the third bedroom that was converted into an office if you need to get any work done while staying at the home, which includes the use of our printer/scanner/copier and office supplies, also complimentary. There's a dedicated workspace and even a 27" LCD monitor for hooking in your laptop (HDMI and Thunderbolt).

On-island, but still connected

Even if you're trying to get away from it all, it's nice to be able to connect if you need to. With the varied topography of Orcas Island, you'll find most parts of the island do not have any cell reception at all. Fortunately, we receive cell signal for the major wireless carriers in and around Orcas Island Getaway.

THE KITCHEN & DINING AREA

Allow your culinary creativity to shine

Amazing dishes are being served by the local restaurants in Eastsound and surrounding communities, so don't spend all your time in the kitchen. However, if you enjoy cooking at home as much as we do, then you'll appreciate a fully equipped, and well stocked kitchen to enjoy dining at home.

“We’re big on cooking in, and the kitchen was well stocked - we didn’t need a thing.”
— David J., December 2015
  The Kitchen and Dining area easily access the rear deck through a glass sliding door. The table pulls away to reveal bench seating for additional seating to 6.

Enjoy fresh fruits & vegetables from local farmers and the seasonal farmers market. You'll find several farm stands throughout the island year-round, offering the freshest ingredients possible. We also have a small fresh herb selection in our planters on the rear deck for you to enjoy during the growing season.

 Orcas Island Getaway Tip: have some cash handy when visiting local farm stands. Many operate on the honor system by paying for what you take with a cash drop box. 

  The kitchen features full sized appliances, quality cookware & knife set, coffee pot and Starbucks Barista Espresso machine.

THE OUTSIDE

Enjoy the outdoors, both on the Island and at the home

Although the property is surrounded by enormous evergreen trees, you'll find the home is showered with sunlight throughout the day.

Lounge in the morning/early afternoon sun on the front deck and afternoon/evening on the rear deck with, BBQ grill and patio set and string lighting for ambiance during the evening.

Take a short stroll on the trails through the property. One trail continues and leads you to Crescent Beach Drive, where just a few blocks away, you could continue a short walk to Crescent Beach and the Crescent Beach Preserve where you'll find a 1.5 mile round trip flat trail to enjoy between Crescent Beach Drive and Mt. Baker Road.

Path meandering through the backyard is a relaxing walk, leading to a shortcut to Crescent Beach or to the Country Corner Market.

 Crescent Beach, just a short 5-minute walk from the home.

Crescent Beach, just a short 5-minute walk from the home.


Location, location, location.

The home is just 1 mile from the vibrant community of Eastsound, the main village Orcas Island, and only two blocks to the beautiful Crescent Beach and the Crescent Beach Preserve.

For outdoor enthusiasts, we're a close 3.5 miles from Moran State Park where you'll find Mt. Constitution with over 30 miles of hiking trails, mountain biking, canoeing & kayaking as well as several freshwater lakes. 


“The property was great with a lovely wooded setting in back with the hot tub, deck and firepit... it felt very private...”
— Bonnie S., June 2015

Relaxing couldn't be easier

Out on the back deck, you'll find a peaceful escape from everything. Hearing birds singing in the trees and frogs from a nearby pond are a great reprise from the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life. The Hot Tub is located just around the corner from the deck and is sure to help you unwind and is a perfect size for 2-4 adults. 

Near dusk, you will often see deer making their way through the back side of the property as they head to other surrounding areas in search of tasty treats (unfortunately it's usually our flowering plants). The large deck overlooks the landscaping and outdoor mood lighting - making for a favorite spot you'll spend relaxing day or night. 

“...the baths were fantastic and the hot tub put the icing on the cake.”
— Nat C., September 2015

“The back deck and fire ring were our favorite places to hang out. With the perfect summer temperature and no bugs, we enjoyed the grill nearly every night! “
— Coast Traveler, August 2015

Wood-burning fire pit is a favorite gathering area for conversation and making S'mores.
