Milford cottage description
Please see the rate tab above for a complete listing of rates based on number of guests and season.
Relax in this cozy small 2 bedroom cottage, nestled on a 575 wooded acre preserve with a rushing native trout stream flowing through the property and a series of mini water falls with a huge cool soothing swimming hole. There is an abundance of wildlife, an exceptionally pristine natural wooded landscape. Perfect for a quiet romantic getaway.
Entering the driveway, one begins a slow descent into the relaxed, other-worldly aura of the peaceful, bucolic and mysterious Dwarfskill Glen, traveling half a mile before reaching the cottage, the four-bedroom vintage main lodge (VRBO # 414465) and a small one-room cabin (both also available). From the top of the driveway, one can see a far ridge, which is part of the Dwarfskill Preserve Property.
The open combined kitchen, dining and living area in the cottage is all knotty pine with wood floors, ceiling fan, cathedral ceiling with French doors overlooking a back lawn/meadow, with a picnic table, abutting the forest. Two small bedrooms, each with queen size beds. Comfortable furniture, gas stove and kitchen stocked with necessary dishes, cookware and spices. Immaculately clean, with quality bed and bath linens.
The Dwarfskill creek is just down a path through the woods; it can be heard babbling through the dense hemlock and pine forest as it rushes downstream to Split Rock Falls (ten minute walk from the cottage). More than a mile of the Dwarfskill, which is a naturally-reproducing trout stream, runs through the property.
The cabin is located six miles from Milford, PA, which Atlantic Magazine once called “the prettiest county seat in America”; three-quarters of the village is in a National Historic District and it galleries, antiques, coffee shops, boutiques and specialty shopping.
Heritage attractions include Grey Towers (Richard Morris Hunt-designed 19th c. stone mansion), The Columns Museum (featuring the blood-stained Lincoln flag, which cushioned the President's head moments after he was shot) and the Hotel Fauchere/Relais & Chateau (see website at hotelfauchere.com), with its three restaurants, patisserie, day spa, vintage menu collection and permanent exhibit of Hudson River School paintings. The day spa, Badea & Soul, offers massages, facials and body scrubs/wraps in the comfort of your cottage rental, by pre-arranged appointment.

Calming ... A place to leave your troubles behind!
Calming ... A place to leave your troubles behind!
Upon arrival in town Sean met us and eagerly shared his knowledge and enthusiasm of the history and highlights of Milford. The short drive out of town to the cabin brought us to a haven in the woods. As soon as you open your car doors you hear the roaring , yet calming sound of the stream on the property. Every building on the property has its own charm about it. If you are looking for a place to turn off the crazy world and appreciate nature at its best, this is the place for you. Rustic, yet cozy and warm. Must see..Columns Museum and Grey Towers.

Year Purchased: 1997
About: Owner is a writer and investor who lives in nearby Milford and New York City. Loves dogs, nature, reading and gentle, kind people.
I bought the property because it is exceedingly private, evokes a spiritual connection to nature and it is movie-set gorgeous. It is also close to NYC, only 75 miles away, but it feels like you’re in the Canadian northwoods or somewhere far away from the stresses and pressures of urban life.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Mushrooming; trout fishing; hiking; wildlife including black bear, deer, wild turkey, mountain lion. Very few mosquitoes (the bats eat them.) Pond; stream; waterfall; swimming hole. Exceptional privacy, half-mile long driveway. The Historic Village of Milford - the birthplace of the American Conservation movement - is only 6 miles away, with heritage & cultural attractions, antiques and great restaurants (including the Delmonico Room, Bar Louis & the Patisserie Fauchere at The Hotel Fauchere, co-owned by the owner of this cottage). 70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
