A great way to launch into summer, we have all kinds of things lined up for the weekend. Saturday night we have old fashioned live entertainment in the screened room (Tilley and friends). Campfires on home beach Saturday and Sunday nights (conditions permitting).
This weekend we start with our newest venture, a craft co-op in our workshop across from the library! We have 3 very talented ladies lined up to display their crafts. Come in for a chat, watch the artists at work! Barret will be doing a fly tying demonstration on Sunday as well. Sunday afternoon we’ll have a Canada Day cake and coffee in the main lodge. Sunday night dinner we will debut our very own home made pizza (along with our traditional menu). Lots to do, lots to see, but lots of time to unwind as well!

Milford House provides a tranquility due to it’s setting that encourages a simpler way of being and increases the interaction of family & friends as there is little in the way of distractions no TV, no radio and limited internet access thus giving both parents and kids the chance to spend some real quality time together. Swimming, canoeing, fishing, reading books, playing board games, picnics on secluded beaches, a walk in the woods are the most popular activities.
