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
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Fauchere in January for a birthday celebration of a close friend. This location has it all and the staff could not be more friendly and accommodating.
-Both restaurants are top notch. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast with homemade goodies. Definitely try their local made yogurt (to die for) and fresh pastries. Bar Louie- You must have the sushi pizza and the duck was out of this world. Full bar.
-There is a cafe and bake shop located in the building next door. Amazing food, fresh and local ingredients.
-Everything is in walking distance. Milford is such a cozy and cute little town with mom and pop shops featuring unique items.
- The super clean rooms include a Nescafe machine with pods, creamer, sugars, and a large bottle of water, all complimentary to the room.
- Room includes hairdryer, heated towel rack, qtips, cotton balls, shower items, makeup remover wipes, they thought of everything.,
- Elevator access to upper floors.
-The bed was super comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised there was a turndown service.
-We only stayed one night! :-( No cons to mention.
I have to say this was such a wonderful experience and I look forward to staying here again in the summer. Highly recommend!

A sophisticated oasis in the heart of Pike County, PA. We frequent this boutique Relais & Chateau property for long weekends. The 3 on site restaurant venues are outstanding. The new beverage manager John, has stepped up the wine, spirit, and beer choices. Good values abound. The rooms are tastefully restored, clean, and comfortable.
Very nice rooms and great restaurants. Breakfast was great in the sunroom. We stayed there one time and an ice storm hit. We were walking and everything just iced up. During the day, we had to crawl over to the Patisserie, but they were still open. Excellent accommodations. Marble showers and plush linens. We ate dinner at Bar Louis in the lower level. Funky NY style restaurant. Great food. Hotel also had a great collection of Hudson River School paintings.
Woke up with a mouse sitting on my face!!! HORRIBLE!!!! Management's response -- "Well, that's never happened before." Seriously??? Was told they would comp my room and then Owner decided a 15% discount was enough. Don't be fooled by the pictures.
