Come join us for an exciting weekend of Milford House Flora and Fauna!  We have several special guests and presenters lined up, for bird watching, wild plant identification, monarch butterfly information, native tree identification, a kids program and more, combined with great home cooked meals and cozy cabins. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Check in any time after 3:00 pm Friday, enjoy free use of a canoe for the weekend, two dinners, two breakfasts and one lunch. After you check out by 11:00 am Sunday, you are free to explore the trails and waterways on your own for the rest of the day.

Come meet our resident Canada Goose families, arrange for a sneak peek at our barn swallow nests, find painted turtles basking in the sun and walk our trails to discover lady slippers, blue bead lilies and trilliums. Check out our new monarch butterfly garden and ask where to view moths first thing in the morning. Pick up a special handmade gift in our Craft Shop.

Once again Ruth, Charlie and I would like to invite you to our opening weekend, join us to celebrate our second season and help us out with some chores.

This year we plan to groom some trails, repaint the cabin signs and of course fill those beautiful planters for the decks. There are also 2 decks that need to be stained.

Nothing strenuous, all skill levels and energy levels are welcome!

As usual, if you would like to come help us out, we offer 3 nights for the price of two. (Accommodations only)   A free canoe is yours for the weekend.

Friday night will start with a Meet and Greet dinner and a chance to catch up with old friends or make some new ones. Stretch out by the fireplace in the lodge or retreat to your cabin and put your feet up on your own deck. Weather permitting, a bonfire on the beach with marshmallows for the kids will finish off the day.

 Saturday we will have a buffet breakfast and then split up into our work groups. We will offer a lunch for the work parties and regroup for the afternoons chores, after a nice long break.

Dinner Saturday night will be followed by a new presentation by Mike Parker.

Sunday is a free day to do whatever you like. Take out a canoe, walk the newly groomed trails, see the sites in town or just relax. We will be stocking the lakes once again, hopefully on Sunday afternoon. A turkey dinner with all the fixings will round the day off with entertainment after dinner.

Monday we will offer a late check out, so you will have a chance to go for another canoe ride after breakfast or relax before heading home.

Last year this weekend was a huge success, this year we hope to make it even better.
