IMPORTANT: Rates vary by date and number of occupants, please click on rate tab above for complete information

Charming historic four bedroom lodge on 575 private forest preserve overlooking a breathtaking naturally-reproducing trout stream with waterfalls cascading through a thickly forested glen with a cool soothing swimming hole and a gorgeous mountain view. The view of the stream from the lodge looks like a Hollywood movie set. Only 75 miles from Manhattan, 125 from Philadelphia.

Exceptionally private, half-mile long driveway (gated); for 75 years was a private hunting club but now is maintained as the owner's exclusive retreat. Privacy and discretion assured; specialized and experienced in hospitality for high-profile clientele requiring exceptional service. Vintage furniture in knotty pine 1930s lodge, all natural materials (no sheetrock) with cathedral ceiling, stone wood-burning fireplace, furnished screened porch, large deck, picnic table set on slate patio and interesting artwork.

Large great room/dining area, newly remodeled bathroom and kitchen. Fully stocked tableware, pots and pans, spices, etc.

Four (4) Bedrooms, all with queen size beds, the master bdrm and bdrm # 1 has a sink and mirror in room. TV/DVD player in master bedroom; wireless internet access and cable TV.

Tremendous privacy, but with nearby caretaker. Two additional properties on Dwarfskill Preserve are also available for rental. The cottage (vrbo#: 431732) has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4; The cabin (vrbo#: 445407) is a 1 room cabin and sleeps 2. Inquire about special pricing for all three together.

Guides for fishing, hiking or tours, or private catering, massage and spa services, available by special arrangement.

The cabin is located only 6 miles from Milford, PA, which Atlantic Magazine once called 'the prettiest county seat in America'; 3/4 of the village is in a National Historic District featuring galleries, antiques, coffee shops, boutiques and specialty shopping.

Heritage attractions include Grey Towers (Richard Morris Hunt-designed 19th c. stone mansion), The Columns Museum (featuring the blood-stained Lincoln flag, which cushioned the President's head moments after he was shot) and the Hotel Fauchere/Relais & Chateaux (see website at hotel fauchere), with its three restaurants, patisserie, day spa, vintage menu collection and permanent exhibit of Hudson River School paintings. The day spa, Badea & Soul, offers massages, facials and body scrubs/wraps in the comfort of your lodge rental, by pre-arranged appointment. Contact them at 570-409-6540

Milford is also adjacent to the 70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Park and the federally-protected Upper Delaware Wild & Scenic River offering a wide array of river activities, including tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, eagle-watching and more.
