Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage with beautiful views of a 3 Acre Pond

Our Hobby Farm Cottage is situated on one of the most beautiful properties in all of the area. Relax outside and watch our free range chickens and Arabian horses play on our 17 acre farm; while our Polish Mute Swans swim and dance on our stunning 3 acre spring fed pond. Bring your fishing pole for your own relaxation or to catch your own diner. Our cottage boasts the old country charm from back in the day yet has been refreshed with newly resurfaced hardwood floors, kitchen cabinets, new countertops and backsplash, fresh paint, new mattresses, linens and all kitchen and bath accessories. Our property has previously hosted a wedding, communions, birthday and graduation parties. It is surely a picturesque place to visit and enjoy.

The historical town of Milford and Raymondskill Waterfalls are only a 5 minute drive away. While visiting our beautiful town you can stop in to see our local castle Grey Towers, many antique shops, art galleries, fine restaurants, spas, take a river ride down the Delaware River or visit one of the many breathtaking local waterfalls.

If your feeling more adventurous and want to take a short 1/2 hour drive, you can rent a boat on Lake Wallenpaupack or go skiing at one of two ski resorts; Big Bear or Shawnee.

Come relax and enjoy all the beauty our small farm and the town of Milford has to offer. We will even leave a dozen farm fresh free range eggs for you to enjoy during your stay.

Too rustic for the price

  • 2 of 5

The photos and write up on the Home Away site did not match up to the reality of this property. The house was not clean, there were holes in the recliners, and the beds were creaky loud and uncomfortable. There's a staircase that leads to nowhere that is blocked by plywood and a lock. The welcoming letter states to watch for ticks in the yard, and leeches in the pond! The grass and landscaping was overgrown so the "patio" set was unusable. There was a raft in the pond, however it was so dirty it was also not usable. The bridge over the pond was slanted and looked like it would fall over! To stay away from those, we were able to somewhat play basketball but the balls were practically flat. Sadly, we couldn't be outside and that's the main reason we booked this place. We only saw the owner one time and that's because we were at our car and she came to feed the chickens.

As a family we made it work as we were a long way from home. The town is quaint but had nothing to offer for families and we could not find another place to stay. This property was definitely not worth the amount that we were charged! The owners should update their photos and be honest about the property itself. We feel we were totally misled by the info on the Home Away site and feel cheated out of the money we spent. As we are frequent Home Away users, this property was the only one that was a bad experience. Not the way we intended to spend our holiday vacation.
