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.

Awesome weekend getaway.

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriend and I enjoyed a quiet, romantic weekend in this cozy cottage. The place was secluded, clean and well-stocked. We felt relaxed the minute we walked in the door and can't wait to make a return visit soon.

Wonderful Cottage - Close to Town but quiet cozy

  • 4 out of 5
We loved it! Attention to detail was amazing, in conveniences, comforts, and decor. Great place, we enjoyed ourselves. I especially enjoyed having the sound of the running water at hours of the day. It is a beautiful, yet convenient location. The cottage had everything we needed, even things we didn't think we would needed.

Rustic and Cozy

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I recently enjoyed 4th of July weekend at this rustic, cozy cottage. It is a log cabin with all that charm yet has a modern, functional flair.

Our first night was very warm but with ceiling fans and windows open we had a very comfortable sleep. The sound of the rushing stream right outside the windows affords a quieting effect. 

On the second day, Hurricane Arthur blew through and cooled everything off enough to use the wood burning fireplace. When the rain stopped we were also able to wander through the town of Milford, which has many shops and restaurants.

We really enjoyed our stay. We were able to cook/BBQ our own meals, share our vacation with our two dogs, and sit and relax outside and inside.

We definitely would like to come back and try a snowy winter stay.

Splendid Cabin with the best of both worlds

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you so much for use of your Cottage! It was wonderful listening to the sounds of the backyard stream and the place was very warm and welcoming. Aside from the minor inconvenience of low head room in the loft, we found ourselves dreaming of our own cabin just like this one.

There were plenty of amenities that allowed us to cook any meal and brew up some tasty coffee and the home decor was simple, rustic, and inviting.

The location was perfect- just secluded enough to enjoy the sounds of nature and the bubbling stream yet close enough to a nearby neighborhood and the cozy community of Milford.

Tons of waterfall trails are all within driving distance which was a pleasure for my wife and I as well!

Thanks again for opening up your Cottage to us and we wish you a wonderful rest of the summer!

Amazing cabin with amazing character!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I rented the cabin for our 1 year anniversary and were able to include our two furbabies (dogs). Upon driving into the driveway you are taken aback by the quaintness of the cabin and it's natural surroundings, but once you step outside of your car you are absoultely entranced by the rushing water. I know it was the first thing my husband and I went to look at. The Cabin is perfectly maintained and welcoming. We never once turned on the TV or the radio, we just left the windows and doors open and enjoyed the sounds of nature and of the river.
I know that we will certainly be back to Milford and this will be where we stay again.
And you MUST eat at the Black Bear Cafe! Its fantastic.
Thank you Steve!
