We just got back from a lovely stay at Hotel Fauchère. Established in 1852, the hotel is located in the heart of Milford, PA. We made the reservation for the hotel through Gilt, as part of their Jetsetter offering. Although, we had to change our dates of travel because of a major snow storm, the staff at Hotel Fauchère and Jetsetter worked with us to ensure we could still enjoy our trip on the dates we selected.
Since we had booked the room through Gilt, we’re not quite sure if we got the best room or service at the hotel. For example, some rooms include continental breakfast, ours did not. Another thing we noticed was that in-room amenities such as the flat-screen TV with cable were a lot smaller than what we were expecting. Nevertheless, the Frette linens, Kiehl’s bath amenities, heated bathroom floors and warming towel racks made up for it. The cookie and bed time story print out on our pillows were a nice touch for the hotel’s turn down service. The hotel has both wireless and hard-wired internet access, and the connection is complimentary to guests. Parking in the hotel’s private lot is included and is less than a minute away from the lobby.
We did try out both the The Delmonico Room and Bar Louis. Both places had great good and Bar Louis even had a live band playing the night we stopped by.
Milford, PA is located in Pike County, Pennsylvania and is just 70 miles from New York. As residents close to a fairly large city, we found Milford to be the perfect place to spend a few days away from civilization. The small antique stores, galleries, gift shops, pâtisserie, corner pizza store and spa all make for a quaint town. In fact, if it wasn’t for the hotel, I’m not sure how many out of town guests would visit during the winter months. Unfortunately, we couldn’t visit the Grey Towers National Historic Site because of site renovation work and will have to make it back for the Black Bear Film Festival and the Milford Music Festival.
