About Sean Strub
Owner is a writer and investor who lives in nearby Milford and New York City. Loves dogs, nature, reading and gentle, kind people.
Sean Strub purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Sean Strub chose Milford
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

Beautiful and relaxing
We loved it
Perfect place in the woods.
Sean obviously takes pride in his homes. Great adventure. Has everything you need. Very close to town.
Lovely cabin and surrounding area
Sean and Cindy were great hosts, both were very helpful and welcoming. Our small family stayed in the cabin for 5 days. There were no other guests in the adjacent cabins so we had lots of privacy. The cabin itself is lovely as were the surrounding woods. We loved the short walks to the waterfall. We also really enjoyed the screened porch. There were a lot of lovely places to sit and relax. The cabin could have used some additional basic kitchen tools. For example, there were only three forks. They need new comforters since they were stained. My son enjoyed exploring the area. Several animals visited our backyard during our stay: a turkey, a toad, a snake, lots of beautiful metallic beetles, many fireflies at night. Unfortunately, I found a deer tick on my leg so do be careful. There was also a lot of poison ivy in the surrounding woods. We are city folks so all the wildlife was equally fascinating and marvelous but also a bit much at times.
Cozy, rustic, secluded and yet close to restaurants and shops 5 miles 7 miles away
We really enjoyed our stay. The screen porch that's not on the photos is very nice. We found the place to be neat and comfortable and secluded. We loved all the surrounding sounds of the birds, the Eagles and the waterfalls. It was just the nature break we wanted. Just a few touches to the outdoor areas would make it a 5* for me. I am a suburbanite.
The place was nice but not for us
The view, the landscape and the house overall were all very nice. I think the place was just not for us....we are older and it was difficult to move around given there were no specific trails. I also was scared of the fact there are a lot of black bears in the area and they come very close to the house. I have to say I think it is a great place for many people...but it just wasn't for us. The reason I put this is not to discourage others but more so to help others figure out that you have to really be into being in the middle of nowhere and be ok with bears and also be able to move around easily. Meaning there are no trails the way you might find at state parks.
The place is very peaceful!!! Overall very nice place. I would give it 4 stars for people who enjoy this type of place
Great Cottage in the woods!
Our weekend in the Cottage was amazing! Great scenery and quiet surroundings. Sean made sure our stay was comfortable in every way possible!
