About Steven Minning
Originally from the Midwest - a New Yorker of 30 years!
Steven Minning purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Steven Minning chose Milford
The proximity to New York is so convenient and easy to get to. The property feels so private - you feel as though you are in the middle of the country, yet you are only a 10 minute walk into the middle of the town of Milford PA. The community is quaint, with good shops, good dining and minimum amount of tourists. Go the Milford Diner for some pancakes in morning and hob-nob with the locals. The area has all the amenities to go out or stay at home!
Guestbook comments from the owner
The cottage was unbelievable !! So serene and peaceful.
We took lots of pics and will forward those to you soon
We made use of the barbecue grill, kitchen and all utensils.
You have done a wonderful job of decorating and had all the essentials plus more!
We have stayed in dozens of homes and cottages throughout the years and
I said to my girlfriend(Jacqui) this is by far the best place we stayed.
It is a perfect getaway, fairly close, reasonably priced, perfect size, beautiful brook,
intense scenery i could go on and on. Steven you really did a nice job, we really enjoyed our stay
And thanks for your great communication, it is greatly appreciated.
We wish you the best of luck and we look forward to visiting again soon.
