A couple weeks ago I was invited by my
friend Sean to spend the night in Milford, PA at the Hotel Fauchere. Sean has spent the past 5 years renovating this 1880 building, and it is a stunner. It also makes for an insanely romantic weekend getaway. This photo is of the Fauchere Family, on the hotel lawn sometime a couple centuries back.
Milford, PA sits at the north entrance of the Delaware Water Gap, a region of spectacular beauty near the PA, NY and NJ borders. It is a short drive (under two hours) from New York, and slightly closer (or farther) from Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore and many other east coast metropolitan areas.
The point is, if you are looking for an incredible weekend getaway this fall, you should consider this rich and historical region. Let me know if you decide to go. I'll tip 'em off to your arrival.
