Founded in 1852 by Delmonico's Master Chef Louis Fauchere, the Hotel Fauchere was operated by the Fauchere family for 124 years. After a total restoration, the hotel today features 16 casually elegant guest rooms, with marble baths, contemporary technology, and premium amenities, in a classic Italianate building in the heart of Milford, Pennsylvania's National Historic District. A permanent exhibition of Hudson River School pictures is featured in the hotel's public spaces, vintage menus in the guest rooms, and contemporary photographs in the hotel's Bar Louis (including a giant Christopher Makos photograph of Andy Warhol and John Lennon behind the bar). Innovative cuisine, multiple dining venues, and within walking distance of the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Park, Grey Towers National Historic Site, and the Columns Museum, with its famous relic, the blood-stained flag that cushioned President Lincoln's head moments after his assassination. The Hotel Fauchere serves as the nexus for the region's culturally vibrant arts community, including annual film, contemporary dance, music, literature, opera, and other festivals.
