About this listing
Charming brookside cabin on a dirt road just outside of historic Milford, PA -- relax and listen to the water. Hike from cabin to a waterfall (most likely you will have it all to yourself!). Very short drive or bike ride to historic town for good dining, galleries, and shopping. Five minutes from the Delaware River and State parks and more waterfalls! This is a great retreat from the City, you get to be in the woods, but with easy access to town amenities!
Sleeps 2 people* comfortably in loft bedroom (accessed by easy to navigate stepladder) which has a king size bed with a brand new memory foam mattress and beautiful linens.
Full small kitchen with coffee grinder and coffee maker, stove and oven, microwave, toaster, and new fridge.

New bathroom with shower, sink and incinolet toilet. Fresh linens, towels, and basic amenities such as soap, and shampoo, and bug spray are provided. The place is rustic but stylish and comfortable.
Outside on the property you will find a basic BBQ and a picnic table, lounge chairs, various seating to enjoy the babbling brook, and your own footbridge to cross the creek and find the hammock along the brook! Great for reading and napping. It is always about 10 degrees cooler than NYC up in Milford, and the woods are refreshing!
