Had planned to stay at the Dimmick Inn, but there were no rooms and the young man there recommended the Myer Country Motel or the Milford Motel. He also recommended the Hotel Fauchere, but we had stayed there before. As soon as we saw the Myer, we knew where we'd like to stay, since we've both wanted to stay in one of the old cottage style motels again and they're becoming very rare. We were definitely not disappointed. We stayed there on the 13th and again on the 15th. The first unit we had was #10, very compact but not lacking anything, and very comfortable. Hubby accidentally broke one of the ceramic pieces that held up the towel bar, so the hosts will know who we are! The second night we stayed in #12, which was somewhat larger. Both units were uniquely decorated and as clean and homey as anything we've ever seen. Cute, but not frilly. In fact, my hubby said #12 reminded him of his grandmother's living room. The grounds are beautifully kept and the place is just blissfully quiet and peaceful. After we checked in, we said it would just be absolutely perfect if there was a nice restaurant/bar nearby. We started out walking down 209 and there was the Balch Family Seafood Restaurant barely a city block away! The motel is also just a short walk - or drive - from downtown Milford, which is a beautiful little town.
Perfectionists will always find something to nitpick and there are some "quirks" but nothing that will detract from a great stay. Also loved the nice front porch with chairs for reading or relaxing.
I think this is a great couple place, but can see where families also might like the more protected outdoor setting for young children. Would hate to see undisciplined children (or adults) tear the place up. I do think it would be a wonderful setting for a family reunion.
The hosts were very nice people - including Finn, the dog - and were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the personal touch. If we ever go that way again, we'll definitely stay there. We try to support family-owned businesses as much as possible.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Myer Country Motel where for over 68 years our standards of innkeeping excellence have been our trademark. Nestled among the Pocono Mountains of North Eastern Pennsylvania, the cottages sit on four acres with blue spruce and white pine trees lining the courtyard. The Myer Country Motel was established in 1945 by Ralph and Matilda Myer. Ralph remarried in 1952 to Audubon Winfield and they together continued to run the motel well into their 80's until their daughter, Audubon Cox, took over in 1975. She brought her energy and knack for decorating to the motel to give it a country home feel. Many people comment that this is their "home away from home". In June 1995 the third generation took over to continue the family business. Today you'll find the same warm, country friendliness that has set us apart for over 68 years. We hope you will visit us soon! ... more less
