Long-time maintenance manager Charlie Richard stocks wood supplies for winter visitors at Milford House.

The Legendary Milford House is Nova Scotia’s longest running family-oriented wilderness resort. Located just outside historic Annapolis Royal, it’s been a popular destination for those seeking an outdoor-themed getaway for more than a century.

Frequent guest Etta Parker has enjoyed year-round visits for many years.

“I went to Milford House for the first time in 1986 and continue to grace them with my presence,” she says.

Historically, visitors were American sportsmen seeking hunting and fishing excursions. Modern-day visitors continue to enjoy year-round access that caters to those who love the outdoors.

The main lodge that houses a dining room, library, playroom, conference room and common rooms operates seasonally. Winterized accommodations and wooded trails sustain year-round visitation. And there are rustic cottages surrounded by trees and fresh water lakes.
