Do try to turn off your devices and just enjoy this wonderful place. The lodge... More

Great place for family, especially if you want to get away from electronics and reconnect with nature and each other. Very rustic cabins (but with indoor plumbing). Most don't have cooking facilities other than a fridge, kettle dishes and silverware, but get the meal plan, it is so worth it. For $30 a person over 16, you get a 3... More

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Milford House, and it was another great one. We spent our days canoeing and kayaking around the two lakes (spotted several beaver lodges, turtles, birds and frogs) and spent some time at Big Sandy, the lovely beach a short canoe trip away from our cabin on Boot Lake. Annapolis Royal is close... More

The main Lodge at Milford house is a stark contrast to the actual cottages.New,bright & spacious with lovely front desk staff the lodge is very welcoming.The cottages are described as rustic and this is something of an understatement.Over 75 years old with electricity and plumbing added at a later date it definitely feels like you stepped back in time.it rained...

My wife and I along with our son and his friend spent a couple of days and nights at Crowe Cottage. Loved the beauty of nature, the rustic feel of the old cottage and the convenience of hot running water and toilet too! The main room had a beautiful stone fireplace and the cabin had plenty of dry firewood and... More

A most enjoyable stay at Milford House for 2 nights July 5 & 6. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, beautiful lakefront views, courteous, friendly staff who provide excellent customer service; then I highly recommend booking a visit to Milford House. The food is fabulous, generous portions and delicious, especially the scallops and haddock entrees. Freshly baked blueberry... More

My husband and I stayed at Milford House for a weekend with our 2 dogs and found it very plesant. Everything feels family run, relaxed and very easy going...to the point where there are no locks on the doors. We stayed in the Colonel cabin and we really liked having our own little penisula where our dogs could be loose... More

We rented Junco which is one of the smaller cottages. Cabin was ready when we arrived at 11:30am so we could move right in. Got settled in, chose our canoe and set out to explore. Spent a great weekend canoeing and walking. I would say the hiking trails are more like moderate walking trails. Easily done in sneakers, took us... More

Labour Weekend visit - Miller Cabin for our fourth adventure and the first time in Miller. Everything wonderful or about this location remains (lodge being the exception) and will bring us back again. It was refreshing to see the various improvements taking place to the cabins and no doubt many more remain to be completed. The walking trails are superb... More

This is a fantastic getaway from civilization. Very quiet peaceful area. The water of the lake is beautiful. . Lots of hiking. Gorgeous trails. Tons of fishing. Two lakes connect for great canoeing. The cabins are very rustic but clean. In door plumbing. If your a city slicker like me prepare yourself. Absolutely no wifi service. No tv. So come... More
