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(dot)com), 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 or info@badeaandsoul.com.

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.

About Sean Strub

Owner is a writer and investor who lives in nearby Milford and New York City. Loves dogs, nature, reading and gentle, kind people.

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.

The Historic Village of Milford - the birthplace of the American Conservation movement - is only 6 miles away, with heritage & cultural attractions, antiques and great restaurants (including the Delmonico Room, Bar Louis & the Patisserie Fauchere at The Hotel Fauchere, co-owned by the owner of this cottage).

70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5
W stayed at the lodge while attending a wedding at the Hotel Fauchere. The house was perfect for 2 couples with kids and a dog. While we didn't get a lot of time to explore because of the wedding, our time in the house was relaxing and serene. We did get a chance to hike down to the dam, and then to the waterfall, and its definitely worth it. Looking forward to another trip the the lodge soon.

Great time

  • 5 of 5
The weather cooperated with us for our weekend as we spent most of the time outdoors on the deck - even tho the other properties are close by, the deck is secluded. Great view down to the water below - pictures don't do the view justice. A bit dark in the main room, could use another light fixture or two.

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I arrived with our dog on a rainy and chilly Sunday afternoon. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the property management team. We stayed in the main lodge and it was plenty big, spotless, and warm and cozy. It was fully equipped with modern amenities, fresh linens, and hot water. Ready for our use. Suffice to say, it didn't take long for us to settle in and hunker down for 3 wintery days in the Poconos.

We didn't have much of an opportunity to explore our first day as the rain put a damper on things, but when the weather cleared, the scenery was spectacular. The creek and falls breathtaking. We must have taken hundreds of pics as we explored the property.

It was the perfect 3 day getaway to decompress and celebrate a new year. Truth be told, the website simply does not do this scenic property justice. Our lodge was exquisite and it was an easy drive from the Philly area.

Thank you Agnus, Gene, Bill, and Sean for your hospitality. We look forward to returning one day.

New Yorkers and The Woods!

  • 5 of 5
As a New Yorker (city girl), nature and I do not usually mix well except in this case. A group of my friends (all New Yorkers ranging from 28-40) took a long weekend trip and we cannot rave enough about how perfect it was. This place is gorgeous! Not only is the cabin rustic but well maintained, it has a great lay out for entertaining a group of friends. The kitchen was stocked with the right amount of dish-ware and cookware, the back deck is large, the grill is new, the fireplace is amazing, and the property is picturesque. We did everything us city-folk don't usually get to do- made s'mores on the outside fire-pits, hiked along the stream, did yoga on the deck overlooking the stream, watched the star filled night sky, and our favorite- sat around the fireplace. We also had a dog who enjoyed every moment of it!

Renting was very easy and all my questions were answered promptly. The owner was very helpful and his staff was very accommodating. Thank you again.

Surrounded by beautiful nature

  • 5 of 5
Awesome view. Ideal for hiking along the creek. For nature lovers. Away from distractions. Perfect to reconnect with family and friends and have quality time. Owner very friendly and helpful. A real cabin in the woods. We were able to use the internet but not via wifi/wireless. There are many books for reading and table games. Our miniature poodle dog had a great time here.

Perfect Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place that could house several (now adult) children, and our parents, and our own children. The lodge was a perfect fit. With bedrooms circling a main living space, we all had privacy, but could spend our afternoons and evenings together.

Lodge was in a great location, close to town, but felt isolated and peaceful on site. The waterfalls were gorgeous. Very happy overall!
