Beautiful setting but extremely uncomfortable beds and furniture. Do rodents count as extra guests? They really need to make an effort to keep the cabins clean. If you have allergies find another place.

My wife and I decided to spend a weekend in one of the winterized cabins and have zero regrets. Customer service was fantastic during the booking process and all questions were answered. The cabin itself was cozy, clean and well stocked with firewood for the evening - the perfect retreat! The surrounding property is beautiful (and quiet!) in the winter... More

We really liked the place we stayed in the Cottage for House is 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms p-us complete kitchen and large deck overlooking the lake. We were there the night... More

This is my second time at Milford House and after seven years away it did not disappoint. This is not a luxury hotel but rather something incredibly special if you can leave behind you want for tv's and wifi. Lovely rustic cottages dotting two lakes, your own dock (on most cabins - except one i think) and if you rent... More

Very rustic and dont be suprised if you share your cabin with some local wildlife.. The only thing I have to say is the price is getting a little out of hand... More

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

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. They are a great... More
