Milford Meadows is perfect for gatherings of family and friends with lots of space both indoors and out. This private vacation retreat is located in a quiet rural area close to Milford, about 20 minutes from the Sandbanks beaches and less than 10 minutes to Picton. Relax and play on the shaded lawn, chill out on the back deck, grill a summer feast on the BBQ, take a hike in the surrounding meadows, follow the meandering creek, and end the day by watching the sun set over the fields while sitting around the campfire.
Milford Meadows, owned by the same family for the past 40 years, is a haven of memories and experiences that they like to share with guests. There are over 100 acres to explore: creek beds and a running stream, a beaver pond among the tall reeds, the hidden stone ruins of the original farmhouse, thickets of pines and small woodlots where you might find the weather worn bones of a cow lost long ago. And there are lots of amazing trees
Please note that this is an old farmhouse and parts of the home are somewhat rustic, in particular the dining room and bedrooms but each year the owners take on a couple of enhancement projects. This past year they replaced the metal roof, repaired cracks and re-painted several of the rooms, added several antique pieces, and reconfigured some of the rooms based on guest feedback.
Take a drive or walk into nearby Milford where you'll find a general store, a bistro, a library, a water dam and millpond, and the Mount Tabor Playhouse.
While you're visiting Prince Edward County, take advantage of the wonderful scenery & country roads, sand dunes & beaches, golf courses & fishing, festivals & farm markets that the County offers. Enjoy a day of tasting and discovery at local wineries and fine dining establishments. Visit the museums, theatre, art galleries, artisans, and antique shops that abound. You won't want to leave and you'll definitely want to return!
