Sean Strub purchased this lodge in 1997
Why Sean Strub chose Milford
I bought the property because it is exceedingly private, evokes a spiritual connection to nature and it is movie-set gorgeous. It is also close to NYC, only 75 miles away, but it feels like you’re in the Canadian northwoods or somewhere far away from the stresses and pressures of urban life.
What makes this lodge unique
Mushrooming; trout fishing; hiking; wildlife including black bear, deer, wild turkey, mountain lion. Very few mosquitoes (the bats eat them.)
Pond; stream; waterfall; swimming hole.
Exceptional privacy, half-mile long driveway.
