3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have to agree with the previous reviewer, quaint is fine but lack of cleanliness is not - the cabin we stayed in - needs maintennance and a spring cleaning. The lodge is brand new, staff are very pleasant ... breakfast is good, the dinner entree was disappointing- their baker is a gem and everything she makes is marvelous. If... More

Rustic cottages with main lodge for those with meal plans or just dinner out. Canoe, kayak, swim or just relax. We love it there as a family getaway. Good food and fun! Family time by a roaring fire after hiking the local trails or a day's activities in the local area.

We had an amazing week again this year! We were a group of 7 and it was the best week of the summer. The sun was shining, the lake was warm and the food was good! We all unplugged and disconnected with electronics for the week. We stayed in Heron and were so pleased with the upgrades to the deck... More

When planning our mini vacation we looked at the Milford House Lodge. The website was so deceiving. They main lodge was absolutely gorgeous. The lady at the front desk was helpful and extremely friendly. Thats about as far as the charm went. When we got to our cottage we could smell the horrible smeill before opening the door. Smoke from... More

So sorry to hear of your opinion of Milford House. This is not what we are known for and not what keeps families coming back for generation after generation. More

This was our first visit but relied on our friends recommendations and were not disappointed. The rustic lake side setting was just the relaxing atmosphere we were hoping for. The recently rebuilt main house is lovely and the staff were welcoming. The only points we have for the management are that the refrigerator in Heron should be replaced as it... More

Thanks for this review. Glad you enjoyed your time with us. Julie our baker is THE BEST, her creations are all yummy.. The fridges are being replaced gradually, I'll see that Heron gets nearer the top of the list. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Normally all the wait staff are all smiling and cheerful.

We booked a night on Groupon. I felt ok about the experience at that price but at $150+ regular price this is way overpriced. I bought their meal plan for $30 per person for breakfast and dinner and it was a great deal. It gave 3 options at each meal. I had the soup and veggie pasta for dinner and... More

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We're glad you enjoyed your time here. Yes the cabins are 'rustic', some being nearly 100 years old. We try to keep them much the same as they were, of course adding the necessities to make them more convenient. Two of our cabins, "Buckshaw" and "Doeshaw" are the newest cabins and... More

Each cottage has a fireplace and individual dock on a tranquil lake with no motorboats or jet skis roaring around. You can rent a canoe inexpensively. We paddled every day and saw no people but saw lots of wildlife, including beavers, turtles, and herons. The cottages are rustic but very clean. The food is not fancy but good. Milford House...

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.
