From 19th-century woodworking to ornate stained-glass windows, every detail about the Towers Bed & Breakfast in Milford is a history buff’s fantasy. A must-stay for travelers (or local staycationers) interested in this period of history, the magnificent Victorian manor is like stepping back in time.
Since its construction in the 18th century, the Towers has been the home of many notable Delawareans, including William Burton, who governed the state during the Civil War, and famous poet John Lofland. It also holds traces of Milford’s ship carpentry industry, which boomed in the 1900s. During that time, the Towers was renovated in unique steamboat Gothic style. In fact, guests will notice that the inn’s intricate woodcarving was modeled after a lavish ship captains’ quarters.
These historic trappings are juxtaposed with and complemented by completely modern amenities. Guests can enjoy smart TVs, Netflix streaming, en suite bathrooms and private gardens for uninterrupted relaxation. The best luxury? Milford is just a skip from the beaches but a world away from crowds.
