The Farmhouse on Dry Creek is waiting to fulfill your childhood fantasies of living on a farm. Nestled into the hills above Bluecreek, just minutes north of Chewelah, Washington, it is part of a small holistic farming operation. The original house, completely renovated in 2012, and the classic barn are situated on eight acres of pasture and woodland bordered by a year-round creek. The farm extends across the road where the host has a small home. The completely furnished home sleeps seven comfortably, and can accommodate more with sleeping pads on the floor. It has everything you need; two full bathrooms (both downstairs), fully equipped kitchen, laundry, Wi-Fi satellite TV, mud room, and plenty of linens and towels. Just bring your toothbrush and food! It’s a place where you can enjoy the company of your family without the usual distractions of everyday life, creating memories that your children will treasure throughout the years. You will find it perfect for weekend getaways, longer vacations, reunions, holiday celebrations, or even quiet retreats alone. The Farmhouse is located just 19 miles from the 49 Degrees North ski area, nine miles north of Chewelah, and five minutes off Highway 395. You turn off at historic Bluecreek, where the old Mercantile still provides anything from gas, groceries and hardware to overalls and work shirts. Turn left and take county-maintained Dry Creek Road as it winds past farms and pine trees till the old red barn on your left shows that you have arrived. The Farmhouse is truly a place for all seasons. After a day at 49 Degrees North, noted for its deep snow and short lift lines, stash your ski gear in the heated mud room with two boot dryers, then review the day with family or friends in the welcoming warmth of the gas fireplace. If you ski or snowboard, we are partnered with 49 Degrees North to offer reduced lift passes. When spring comes, the farm itself seems to come to life. Contented chickens take dust baths and scratch for bugs in the grass, ignored by the farm cat lazing in the sun. You may see wild turkey toms showing off their fans to hens, who pretend not to notice, and later, hens escorting their flocks of little poults. Midsummer brings newborn fawns, grazing cows, and the barn filling up with hay, Explore Chewelah--in its beautiful park children wade in the shallow creek as families gather around picnic tables under the tall pines. This is the home, every Friday, of the small farmers’ market consistently voted the best in the state. The park is also the setting for many special weekend events, such as the Chataqua Celebration in July. The nearby museum is full of fascinating relics and the area’s logging and mining past. Bring your golf clubs and try the challenging course at the 27-hole Chewelah Golf and Country Club, open to all. (Note that airplanes have the right-of-way on some of the roads; the airport and golf course are back to back.) Farther down the road to the south you’ll find a casino and an antique car museum. Everywhere you go you will enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. Back at the Farmhouse you’ll welcome the country sights and sounds, savor a favorite drink and a home-cooked meal with family or friends, lose yourself in a good book, and get a peaceful night’s sleep. Hope to see you at the Farm!
