Pine Hill Farm
A charming country inn outside historic Milford

From the April 22, 2002 Issue of New York

It's hard to believe Manhattan is only two hours away when you climb the hill behind the house at Pine Hill Farm and take in the three-state view, which includes the farm below, the Delaware River Valley, and the Kittatinny Mountains beyond. Newlyweds Yvonne and James Klausmann serve breakfast on the terrace and will map out great hikes or bike rides on the old logging roads that crisscross their hillside hideaway. Guest rooms have king-size beds and Ralph Lauren style. Nearby is the historic town of Milford (don't miss the WaterWheel Café and bookstore at the Upper Mill) and the Delaware River, where you can canoe, raft, or swim. Perhaps best of all are the nearby Raymondskill Falls in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
