Modern Americana. With its wraparound porch and American flags flapping in the breeze, the Fauchère doesn’t seem all that different from Milford’s cluster of quaint, small-town art galleries and bookshops. But inside, the hotel is a world away from lace doilies and chenille throws, and prefers a 19th-century style with bead board ceilings, traditional molding and luminescent Hudson River School landscapes on the walls.
Bed & Bath
The 16 guestrooms are a graceful and organic extension of the sophistication found throughout the house. It’s all modern furniture, upscale amenities (Frette linens, Kiehl’s bath products, radiant-heated floors), original hardwood floors and, in two of the rooms, private terraces. Bathrooms are uniformly spacious and done up in gleaming Carrera marble and Pennsylvania Blue Stone. Some have modern glassed-in showers, others favor over-clawfoot-tub shower heads.
The Fauchère attracts hip insiders thanks to its foodie-centric restaurants. Upstairs, visitors and locals alike dine on farm-to-table fare that changes on the weekly in the well-dressed Delmonico Room. Down below, Bar Louis provides a relaxed gathering space for visiting urbanites nurturing their inner country gentlemen and ladies. With selections like local cheeses, black truffled fries, Lillet cocktails and glasses of Tokaji, it’s no wonder that this elegant country estate has been in business since the 1800s.
In the Area
Get a sense of the region’s history by touring Grey Towers, a Richard Morris Hunt-designed Normanesque château that was the former home of Gifford Pinchot, or see the famous blood-stained Lincoln Flag that cushioned the President’s head moments after he was assassinated, at the Columns Museum. Feeling active? Go canoeing or tubing or hiking in the 70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap Recreational Area. Shop for works by local artists at galleries steps from the hotel. In the evening, don’t miss the farm-to-table fare at the hotel’s Delmonico Room, or a liquid dinner at Bar Louis — we liked the handcrafted mezcal, tequila and Strega liquer concoction, Agave Heaven.
How to Get There
Great food, highly recommended. Best restaurant in Milford town. Fresh ingredients and delicious drinks in bar Louis. I had the short ribs with the steak frites. Great food, great service, great experience all around
Beautiful hotel in the center of Milford, PA. Excellent service with lots of nice touches (such as homemade cookies and milk at night). The staff is wonderful and responsive to any requests you might have. Be careful to check the breakfast menu when you sit down--the Fauchere's idea of "continental breakfast" is a feast. Breakfast pastries are delicious and (I think) come from the bakery next door. We were overwhelmed the first morning so narrowed it down to fewer items on our second day so that we didn't have to roll out of the dining room!
This hotel was recommended to us by family and friends. We did a weekend getaway for my wife’s birthday. Rooms were spacious, warm, comfortable and very clean. Added plus were the heated towel rack and tile floor.
The staff was pleasant and professional. Food was outstanding. We highly recommend Hotel Fauchere
Rare to find a true European style hotel in northeastern Pennsylvania. "European-style" here refers to a property with long history, tasteful furnishings and a traditional formal service level with guests. "European-style" also refers to a lack of American-style amenities such as a gym, pool, a true lobby (although there is an enclosed sitting room that also functions as a back porch). You can reasonably argue that an on-premises bar and restaurant constitute amenities but you could also reasonably argue they are simple public establishments that happen to be very close by. Either way, the space itself with its 12 foot (?) ceilings, sumptuous stair railings and muted golds, greys and marbles enchants. Much of the art does as well except along the hallway leading to the sitting area and along the walls of the sitting area itself sits what honestly looks like paintings of local area attractions- include the hotel itself - created at one of the pinot-and-paint places or done by local nursing home residents (no offense to such individuals intended, they just tend to be very literal in their artwork). Speaking of wall-hangings, the headshots on the way down to Bar Louis of celebrities who have visited the establishment offer no actual proof of their patronage. Presumably, all really did occupy the hotel at some point, the more "pictures-or-it-didn't-happen crowd might just be left to ponder. The level of taste and quality warrants a substantial price tag to be sure, Thewestchestarian suggests $300 might be just a tad ambitious given some nits such as an early millennia television with about 11 channels and what appeared like - but certainly wasn't - poor reception and two parking neither of which offered an open space during the stay. In short, for the well-heeled who see the local hiking trails as their fitness room and who appreciate the solidity of construction which is now a lost art, this is a rare find but more modern types may not see the value for money.
Beautifully decorated Victorian style hotel in the center of town. A bit expensive, but worth every cent. Their fine dining is just that and the piano player added just the right mood for the evening. If in Milford, stop by. They have front porch dining for lunch and dinner, but it got too cold for us to enjoy the porch. There is a cute little bar downstairs, which will not disappoint. Drinks are very reasonable.
