The Miller's House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 4 Milford B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2011

We've stayed at many bed and breakfast and many high end hotels in the world I can honestly say that the Miller's House is exceptional. It's memorable because of the host, the service, and the food. Bob Cowan owns the B&B and it is because of his warmth and hospitality that we would return in a heartbeat.

We spent 4 days at the Miller's House and wish we could have spent more. We'd read on TripAdivsor and others about the "great breakfasts" and wondered just how good they could be. Well, I can tell you that they do not disappoint. In fact, they are world class - The Four Seasons would be pleased to be serving breakfast this good. I'm not kidding. In fact, I've never stayed at a place where I would find myself wondering and looking forward in anticipation for the next day as to what we would be having for breakfast. When we were there, each breakfast started off with a different fruit plate and home baked scones (blueberry one day, corn the next, etc) before the main breakfast plate arrived that varied from cold blueberry soup (delicious) to melt in your mouth blueberry crepes the next.

The "service" aspect is not something you would expect from a B&B and Bob gave it at the level normally provided at Small Luxury Hotels of the World. When it threatened rain, Bob handed us two extra rain jackets. When we were going to the beach, Bob gave us his cooler, a large beach umbrella and his park pass. When we were wanting to stay longer and he had no room, he called a friend down the street.

Having now returned home, we were talking about how we already miss the 15 minutes or so we spend each morning just before breakfast talking to Bob in the sitting area. It was like catching up with an old friend as we talked about the day, about life or about living in Buenos Aires, where Bob now spends his winters.

We already miss the sound of the waterfall through the bedroom window at night and we miss the silence.

With a review filled with such accolades, what is there to improve? The bathroom on the first floor suite was definitely a little tired and in need of a refurbish (and we heard from people on the second floor that their shower head sounded a bit like a screaming jet plane) but on the second day we were there, contractors had arrived to measure our bathroom for a brand new and expanded bathroom. I hope that goes in before the next time we are back. Even if it isn't, there's too much here to like. In fact, it's one of those gems of a place you hesitate telling others about for fear that the secret will be out and there won't be availability next time!

Best bed and breakfast in the Picton area; maybe the best b & b in Prince Edward County.
Alison and I have stayed at several bed and breakfasts in the county during many visits, and Bob's place was a wonderful place to stay. Great meals, lovely property, and a very attentive and charming host. Who really knows how to cook, too! The location is great, as well, near Long Dog winery (a great little winery that few know about because their perfectionism takes them off the grid a little), close to Picton, and not too far from Bloomfield and the beaches of Sandbanks.

My wife and I spent two nights at The Miller's House B&B and had a delightful time. Bob was an exceptional host, going so far as to loan us some beach chairs, an umbrella and park pass so we could sit on the beach for hours on end. Bob's home makes a lovely getaway and, as other reviewers have mentioned, his breakfasts were scrumptious.

All the Tripadvisor reviews I read about The Miller's House and Bob Cowan, the owner/host, were spot-on!

We stayed 3 days at Bob's terrific home in Milford. He's a super host, great chef, and very knowledgeable about Prince Edward County / Picton area. We stayed in the Mill Pond suite - very comfortable; lots of room to spread out. It costs a bit more, but it's worth it.

We recently returned from our 4th trip to PEC and have stayed with Bob each time. A 6 star breakfast featuring locally produced foods prepared and presented in gourmet fashion.
Bob is not only an excellent cook but a host extraordinaire.
His knowledge of the county is invaluable!
We would highly recommend The Miller House

This was our 2nd stay at Bob's beautiful and tranquil B&B. The house is off the beaten path and after driving the winding road, sure that we were lost, we were especially delighted to find this warm and inviting house and host. Our room was spacious, beautifully and simply decorated with antiques and tasteful bedding, a comfy bed, and a large window looking out over the garden and perennial beds. The bathroom has a claw foot tub/shower, 2 sinks, and a great pine floor. As others have said, Bob's breakfasts are the best. A typical breakfast is home-made banana muffins/scones, more artfully arranged fresh fruit than anyone could eat, perfects eggs, Heirloom tomatoes, and coffee of course. AND not only have WE enjoyed out visit, but April our discerning Border Collie treats Bob as an old friend, and that's really saying something. It's really great to find a really nice place that allows dogs - very much appreciated. Bob has also been great about recommending restaurants and local sights to see. Last but not least, one really nice touch is the little lanterns he lights at night so you can find your way to the front door. Thanks Bob!

Amazing! My husband and I had a flawless weekend at the Miller House. Bob was a magnificent host and made us feel right at home. From Bob’s wealth of local knowledge to his five star breakfast, featuring fresh local grown organic ingredients, we couldn’t have asked for anything more from a Prince Edward County get away. The house is beautiful, clean, and features super comfortable cozy beds. You will leave wanting to go back again.
