We've just returned from a great weekend at Milford House. The lodge may be gone for now, but the warm hospitality, home-cooked meals, and rustic charm remain. Thanks for a great mini-vacation, and congratulations on keeping things running so smoothly, despite the fire. Enjoy the summer, Milford, we will be back soon!

Thanks so much for this! Our guests keep us focused during this difficult time. It was a pleasure to have you and your family here for the weekend. Plans for rebuilding are already in motion. Thankfully all our cabins were unscathed. Wait til you see us next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More

If you want to feel you are getting away from it all and back to a natural setting this place is for you. The cabins are certainly rustic, and may not suit everyone, but are more than adequate and comfortable. We stayed in Doeshaw which is winterized and has cooking facilities. From time of booking, pre-arrival, arrival and during our... More

We're not the typical Milford House customers. As avid "adventure" motorcyclists we started coming here a few years ago and discovered a few things. 1) Milford House offers an alternative to the usual place to stay, very old school rustic, but comfortable. 2) There's a lot of fine back road / trail riding just minutes away from Milford House. 3)...

We've been coming to Milford House since 2004 (and I came as a kid with my family decades ago). It's always like coming home to us. We've been in several cabins and have always enjoyed ourselves. It is rustic, and I mean rustic, but that is part of the wonder of this place. No heat but a nice roaring fire... More

We return to Milford House late every August for a family vacation that brings children and now, grandchildren, together for a week each summer. I am happy to report that this year has been one of the best as new management has returned Milford House to its family oriented traditions. Meals were a pleasure as the country cooking was both...

We stayed here two nights in the Loon cabin in October - be aware that when they say "rustic", they mean it! But that is part of the charm of the lodge and cabins - staying in a 90-year old cabin with a roaring fire going in the fireplace all night long to stay warm gives you a sense of... More

My friend hosted her wedding here and by all means, this place was absolutely amazing. The staff were friendly and courteous but you don't really see them unless you go into the main house. There are a bunch of cabins surrounding a lake and you rent out each cabin. Ours was the Crowe cabin, by far the biggest and the... More

We have been visiting Milford for 24 years now, and still count our annual visit as the highlight of our year. It is a place that is seemingly untouched by time, where you can simply relax and forget about the outside world.

We've just returned from our annual vacation at Milford, and as usual, we had a great time.

My family has been coming to Milford House for 23++ years, and do not plan on breaking that tradition. You can't beat this rustic escape into the woods with canoeing, fishing, hiking, swimming, etc etc. Over the years Milford House has switched management many times, but this year I feel there has been a great change.
