The Laurel Villa was built as an Inn in 1876, and has been operated as an Inn continuously since then.
In the early part of this century, Milford boasted over 30 resort hotels and Inns. The Laurel Villa is one of the few remaining, and is now the second oldest Inn in Milford, Pennsylvania. It has been owned by one family, longer than any other Inn within the Milford area.
Along the way it has served as a stagecoach stop, as the summer home of the Ensemble Studio Theatre, and as a residence for many visiting soap opera stars performing at the Milford Theatre.
The Laurel Villa has been in the Muhlhauser family since 1945.
Our restaurant is presided over by Chef Carl Muhlhauser, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. He travels frequently to the New York City markets to obtain the freshest seafood and produce. There are always daily specials featuring the "Catch of the Day", in addition to our regular menu. He is always delighted to make recommendations, and to talk with you about your menu selections.
Many of our herbs are raised just outside our kitchen door!
We are offering local "Farm to Table" produce on our menu. We look forward to making your visit refreshing, relaxing, and memorable.
