Gorgeous architecture, a lovingly executed renovation, and two good restaurants--one formal, one causal and bar-focused--make Hotel Fauchere an appealing choice.

That said, my "deluxe" room was surprisingly diminutive--particularly so for a small town that's clearly not pressed for buildable real estate. The furnishings in my room were perfectly decent, if a bit aesthetically bland. The marble bathroom was beautifully done and, relative to the size of my room, quite generously proportioned.

Milford itself offers very little in the way of shops, restaurants, or nightlife, but there are many wonderful natural recreational opportunities close at hand. The good news is that the town's best built-world offerings are located right in the Hotel Fauchere; the bad news is that travelers seeking urbane diversions will quickly grow bored.

I very much I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Fauchere, but for $325 per night, a room in Milford, Pennsylvania, ought to be much larger and more luxurious.

Being a late 20-something at the time of my visit to Hotel Fauchere I was a bit concerned about traveling with my girlfriend to a small town inn in Pennsylvania. We should be going to Boston, New York, DC, or a beach front getaway in Florida for vacation, not Western Pennsylvania. We picked up our rental car in Midtown and set out on our way. We spent a majority of the time trying to get to the Lincoln Tunnel. Once out of the city, we enjoyed the beautiful drive through New Jersey, across the Delaware Water Gap, got a little lost and then found ourselves in Milford, Pennsylvania.

The hotel accommodated an early check-in and we dropped our bags in the room. From what I had heard, the hotel had undergone significant restoration. These renovations had not diminish the historic character. As a guy, I appreciated that the bed was comfortable and there was a flat panel television conspicuously placed in the corner.

The hotel chef prepared a picnic to our specifications: a few salad dishes, fruits, vegetables and pasta. All were very good. The desk attendant provided directions to trails and sights in the area where we might enjoy a short hike with our picnic. We settled on Dingmans Falls. It was a 2 mile hike through the woods, stopping at the top of the falls for lunch.

That evening, we enjoyed drinks in the hotel bar before contemplating dinner. Having had a couple martinis we thought it best to walk to a restaurant. We inquired at the front desk for their recommendations. The owner of the hotel happened to be in the lobby and we chatted about the hotel's history. He graciously offered to drive us to a wonderful restaurant in town. Upon dropping us off, he asked the restaurant manager to notify the hotel when we were ready to return so that transportation could be arranged.

After dinner, we were whisked back to our hotel, our room prepared with turn-down service. After a good night of sleep in the quiet woods of Pennsylvania, we enjoyed breakfast and the Sunday Times in the hotel restaurant.

Stayed: October 2006

Loved the staff and the cleanliness of the property, but too many downsides made it not worth the price, thus, we will not be returning. The upsides include the cleanliness of the room and nice amenities (Kielh's bath products, free bottled water, and wine). We also liked the sound of the fan which ran constantly and blocked out street noise (though it could not block out the loud footsteps from the guests staying on the 3rd floor directly above us.)

We stayed in the largest room on our January 2008 visit - the premier room - which faces the back of the property. The room was small and presented as rather bland. There is no art work on the walls and no bureau in which to place our clothes. We can only assume the "separate sitting area" mentioned in the room description referred to the chair tucked into in the corner of the room. The bed consisted of a white fitted sheet and two twin size white down duvets (one for each spouse). As the bed lacked a fitted sheet or a blanket and the twin size duvets were on the short side, it meant your toes stuck out from the end of the duvet. The bathroom only had a claw foot tub which meant the faucet needed to be attached to a hook near the ceiling in order to shower. Unfortunately, there was no way to shower without flooding the bathroom and subjecting oneself to a chilly draft as the spray from the faucet didn't extend far enough into the tub and the curtain around the bathtub did not stretch completely around the tub. Very frustrating and uncomfortable for showering.

We paid for the weekend dinner package which included a 3-course meal and a bottle of wine with dinner (or $26 towards the wine tab). The food was OK in their restaurant, Delmonico's. About comparable to a restaurant with entrees in the $20-30 range in Philadelphia or NYC. I'd recommend not getting the dinner package as if you order most any of the options on the menu, dinner for two costs less than $150, so it is in no way a savings to pay for the dinner package.

We usually stay in Four Seasons, Relais & Chateau, or Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties when we travel. Not that we expected Hotel Fauchere to be of this caliber, but for the $850 we spent for two winter nights in rural Milford, PA, we expected much more. $200 a night would have been more appropriate for what was received.

We peeked into some of the other rooms and they seemed about the same size as the premier room, but if you stay there, I'd definitely avoid the 2nd floor rooms as they are right near the staircase which ends at the front door and the Delmonico's restaurant - it can be noisy. If you have to stay there, I'd take the smallest room they have and stay on the 3rd floor. You're not getting that much more by staying in the Premier room (except perhaps use of the balcony if the weather is warm) so it is not worth the price. But again, wonderful staff and clean rooms. Just not as luxurious as was advertised.

Stayed here on December 24, 25, 2007 (Christmas Package included Christmas Eve dinner and room for two nights). Lovely hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. Wonderfully dog friendly, my pup couldn't go anywhere without being offered cuddles and cookies! Food was OK, not as wonderful as had been lead to believe but perhaps because it was a busy night. Room was spectacularly comfortable and clean. Would love to go back at a warmer time of year to enjoy their very pretty garden.

imagine a room that is so perfect that even the hardest critic (and i'll admit i am one) could not find one single thing wrong? from the frette sheets to the heated towels and deep clawfoot tub to the bottled water, fabulous bottle of red wine, and chocolates that were a gift (no minibar overcharges, just a hotel that says, "here, enjoy, it's on us"!), every single part of the Hotel Fauchere drips with attention to detail.
but that's just the room--- the food is really the reason to stay here.
Bar Louis is the more casual room. guaranteed you will NEVER forget their "sushi pizza," a perfect combo of sushi rice, ahi runa and caviar. or the addictive malanga chips or truffled french fries. every single thing on the menu sings, and the tastes are so distinctive and wonderful that you'll want to sit there all night, in front of the mazing Chris Makos photo of John Lennon and Andy Warhol.
Upstairs is the restaurant Delmonicos. No words can describe the fantastic seared scallops or beef carpaccio. Adn the rack of lamb is possibly the best piece of meat I have ever eaten.
Cannot wait to go back to Milford, and the Hotel Fauchere

If you are a fan of historic preservation, done right, than this is the place. I took my husband here for a mid week getaway, knowing he would love the attention to detail & the incredible renovation. He is a designer / builder and we have restored a property or two. We are also innkeepers and when we can get away, we always love to treat ourselves with the best.
This hotel does not disappoint! Wonderful, comfortable rooms with first class details. Friendly ,accommodating staff and great food at Bar Louis.
It all comes together here, and we wish Richard & his staff all the best. We can't wait to return, and have already sent friends.
