Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Originally from the Midwest - a New Yorker of 30 years!

Why the Owner Chose Milford, PA, USA:
The proximity to New York is so convenient and easy to get to. The property feels so private - you feel as though you are in the middle of the country, yet you are only a 10 minute walk into the middle of the town of Milford PA. The community is quaint, with good shops, good dining and minimum amount of tourists. Go the Milford Diner for some pancakes in morning and hob-nob with the locals. The area has all the amenities to go out or stay at home!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A very open space - yet a very cozy and warm space complete w/ a working fireplace. The open space includes an open staircase with no railing that leads up to the sleeping loft. The staircase is solid and sturdy, but has no hand rail. See photo above.
