Milford House is conveniently situated, in the village of South Milford, in the heart of the western region of Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada, famous for its biodiversity, with its many lakes and forests. We are located close to Historic Annapolis Royal, Bear River, and the town of Digby known for it’s world famous scallops. Or on to Brier Island for a day of whale watching.

Wilderness enthusiasts can spend the days exploring the Milford House Back Country or travel to nearby Kejimkujik National Park. 

Each of our distinctive quintessentially Canadian rustic lakeside cabins has a view of one of the lakes and is within walking distance of the main lodge and dining room. The main lodge has telephone and wireless internet. Don’t lift a finger! Cabins are cleaned daily. Wood and kindling are provided for your use. Canoes can be rented on a daily or weekly basis.

First time guests and seasoned visitors — young and old — recount very similar impressions upon their arrival. There is that familiar tingle down the spine and feeling of anticipation when you see the big, white lodge sitting majestically back from the road … the Canadian and Nova Scotia flags suspended high on either side.

Off-season visitors will find a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of hectic schedules. A late Spring or Fall Retreat is just what’s needed for your next business meeting. We are pleased to accommodate your group’s needs. A small conference/meeting room seats 25 or our spacious dining room is available for larger groups. Off-season bookings enable us to provide you with a range of services in this relaxing, stress-free atmosphere.

Fall in Nova Scotia is breathtaking! Choose Milford as your destination this fall. The weather is comfortable and the pace slows down even more following the Labour Day weekend with the start of a new school year. The Milford Lakes are ablaze in autumn foliage. For many, this is often the perfect time to discover Milford House and the surrounding area.

Join us this season at the Legendary Milford House Resort and lakeside cabins.
