Why Catherine Reilly chose Milford
This place is perfect for those who want to tune out the noise of the city and tune in to the charms of a simple life in the country. It’s crickets here ... and song birds, frogs, swans ... even a rooster wake-up call Fun opportunities for children to gather their own eggs, pick berries and find frogs. If relaxingon the famous beaches at Sandbanks Provincial Park, we are only 20 minutes away and we include use of a day pass for you to enjoy the park for free.
What makes this Cottage unique
The mist rising from the Black River as the sun rises over the forest ... a beautiful arising with nature. Say good night to the fireflies dancing in the dark and see the stars in the night sky ... a midsummer’s night dream awaits you.

Catherine and Robin are great as hosts
Thank you for this beautiful week-end and your kindness. We did appreciate a lot your cozy cottage. Super quiet place in the nature. We definitely recommand your location and probably comme back, eventually. P.S. My friend said that he will miss Dora.
Excellent place to relax
Perfect to forget big city Owners are very nice and helpful.
Cottage is small but very clean most time we spend outside anyway only thing is wifi if you want to watch movies or play games is to slow and isn’t unlimited but you can use kayak or canoe on the river
Great place to stay
My sister and I stayed here for a month (October into November). Catherine warned us that the place was small, and we might feel cooped up, but that wasn't the case for us at all. It's compact but has everything you need... and the heating system is very good so if you're thinking of a winter stay, don't worry!
The absolutely only reason I didn't give Catherine's place five stars is the cost of the internet. I don't think she mentions offering the internet in her listing, but since my sister runs an online business, internet access is important to us. Given that the place is in the country, and the internet service provider probably has limited bandwith, we agreed to pay the overage for our usage. We are fine with the amount we paid, but it is relatively expensive. Still, we had looked at other places, and even including the extra cost for the internet, our total costs were less than we would have paid elsewhere. If the internet isn't an issue for you, then this place gets an easy five stars.
We watched the trees change into their glorious fall colours, relished being able to see so many stars at night, and enjoyed the quiet (the three dogs don't bark).
I recommend it highly. Thank you, Catherine, for being such a great host.

Quiet away from it all
This lovely little place was portrayed well and was exactly what we wanted. The owners were incredibly helpful and kind. They gave us our privacy. We did love the animals that came to visit.
The only issue we had was that the water had taken on a very strong sulphur smell. The water table levels were high because of the type of year it had been, not the fault of the owners. It was very smelly after taking a shower and unfortunately it lingered. We bought water to drink and make coffee. I know that the owners were aware of the issue and were going to resolve the issue before the next occupants. That was our one and only little inconvenience. We hope to go back in the future.
Thanks for sharing your place and peace and quiet with us.
Thanks for the review. The water has been an ongoing issue and we have decided that the only solution is to replace the hot water tank once it warms up
Perfect little place for a family of 4
We loved it😍
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was very relaxing and peaceful. We especially enjoyed the easy access to the river and the canoes that were provided.
