Francis Creek Retreat, built in 1881, is one of the earliest homes in the Historic Victorian Village of Ferndale. Besides being comfortable, clean, and well appointed, our sunny, two bedroom home is steps from Main Street. It is a minute's walk to the town's fantastic restaurants, bars, shops, the park, and even bocce courts! Beautiful and wild Centerville Beach is a scenic five mile drive away. We love this house and are confident you will enjoy your stay in Ferndale.
Francis Creek House is a comfortable and cute two bedroom, one bathroom (shower only) home with a large kitchen, living room, and dining room. The bistro table and propane barbecue on the large back deck are great for enjoying a sunny day and the quiet ambiance of Francis Creek, which runs behind the house. This home is one of the oldest in our town, and we love how you can see the original hand-hewn cedar beams in the kitchen.
The house has wifi throughout and cable television in the living room. The beds and carpet are brand new and the interior of the home is all freshly painted. We have on-demand hot water and forced-air heating. There's a laundry room with a washer and dryer for your use. Enjoy coffee from the Keurig in the morning. The kitchen has pots and pans and a grocery store one block away for breakfast at home, or head out to the local cafes down the street for a hearty Ferndale breakfast.
Francis Creek Retreat is just a few doors down from the largest living lighted Christmas tree, and a cozy place to watch the Ferndale Lighted Tractor Parade, which passes by the front door of the house each December!
The entire home, yard, deck and barbecue are for guests' use.
We are only a few minutes drive and a phone call away. Contact us with any questions at any time. We respect our guests' privacy but are happy to help when you need something.
This is a NO SMOKING or VAPING property. If you smoke, this is not the place for you, as the smoke odor lingers on clothing and then is tracked into the house. Thanks for respecting our request.
- Please, no smoking of any kind, including marijuana, inside or outside the house. No third-party bookings, and no large parties.
- We are located in a neighborhood and expect our guests to respect the neighbors and the quiet setting.
- We have just put in new carpet... in order to keep it nice for the next guest, we'd appreciate you removing your shoes.
