Hotel Fauchère, Milford
|401 Broad Street, 18337, Milford, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES.|
Description: Hotel FauchèreFounded in 1852 by Swiss-born Louis Fauchère, Hotel Fauchère is located in Milford, Pennsylvania, in the heart of beautiful Pike County. After a meticulous restoration in 2006, this historic property was reopened to revive its magnificent legacy, and offers luxurious boutique accommodation, fine gourmet cuisine and top-class, bespoke service in a delightful small-town setting.
Less than two hour's drive from New York City, yet seemingly a world away, Hotel Fauchère is perfect for relaxing stays in this beautiful corner of Pennsylvania. Surrounded by a number of State Parks, Wildlife Refuges and natural areas, outdoor activities available close by include horse riding, golf, fishing, rafting, cross-country and Alpine skiing, hiking and mountain biking, among many other options. Cultural and heritage attractions range from the Columns Museum, with the Lincoln Flag, to the Zane Grey Museum in Lackawaxen.
As befits a hotel founded by a world-famous chef, gourmet cuisine is one of the ''raisons d'être'' of Hotel Fauchère, and The Delmonico Room serves creative traditional cuisine accompanied by a fabulous wine list in an elegant and welcoming atmosphere, enhanced by a fine collection of original paintings by artists of the Hudson River School. Other venues include the more informal Bar Louis, and the adjoining Patisserie Fauchère.
