Authentic 100 Year Old Lake House on Pristine Mountain Lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Located atop local mountains and across from a state forest, Arnold's Lake has been a haven for families for well over 100 years. Our cabin is all original and one of the first on the lake. The lake is clear, the view unreal and the peace and quiet just what most of us are looking for.

Since this house is much like it was built around the turn of the century, it still has the quaint simple feel it was originally designed with. There is a large porch to rock on, a fabulous deck to sit and share coffee or a swim, a grill to make your meals and the closeness to nature (lovely outdoor shower) that will linger long on your mind and soul.

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary from a simpler day and time. You have found it.

Both Baseball parks are within a 15 minute drive.

Note: One owner is a licensed real estate agent

About Michele Frazier

We are a local family of five siblings that own the lake home together. As diverse as can be, we are a business owner, construction manager, a farmer, a pastor and a professor. We have 10 children between us. We are fortunate to spend many summer days together cooking, fishing, hiking and rocking on the porch.

Why Michele Frazier chose Milford

The lake house was originally purchased by our mother as a place where we could all come together in the summers. Her dream was to make this cabin a place where many memories were made and that would be passed down for generations to come. We are working on both the memory making and the passing down for generations.

Our new happy place!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, we loved it. The cabin was rustic yet quaint with everything we needed. It was nice to disconnect from the hustle and bustle and reconnect with family time; no tv, no internet, no interruptions. We spent hours on the porch enjoying the serenity of the lake, fishing from the dock (our kids caught hundreds throughout the week and the lake is crystal clear), kayaking, row boating and just enjoying nature. The home is fully stocked with dishes and disposable goods, life jackets, fishing rods too. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, hot plate, microwave, toaster oven all perfect for cooking breakfast and a gas grill. Birds hatched in the outdoor shower, we made friends with the chipmunk who would scamper across the porch, our baseball player and team brought home the championship which topped the cake. Our trip to New York and Arnold Lake is hands down one of our most memorable family vacations to date!

wonderful cabin on a beautiful little lake. Very peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint and very clean cabin on beautiful Arnold Lake. We were very pleased with our stay. The cottage had everything we needed, but be warned that it is minimalistic....and has no internet, TV, and only spotty phone service (which is just what we were looking for!). The entire house was very clean and truly charming. The bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs and are all only separated by partial walls (open at the very top and bottom), so best for folks who are very comfortable with each other. Michelle was an attentive and accommodating hostess, and was very easy to work with. We would highly recommend this cottage, and are already planning our next stay there.

Amazing get-a-way from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin has the utmost charm of an original 1920's lake cabin. Our host Bobbie, greeted us the day we arrived with all the details of the cabin. The porch was the highlight in the sun, the rain, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its a quiet area, the lake is clean and fantastic to swim in, fish or paddle on. I had a great stay and would definitely return!
