We had lived in Milford several years ago and wanted to have dinner at a local favorite, the Seven Seas. We chose the Lily Pad becasue it was immediately adjacent to the hot Milford night life, but did'nt realize what a real gem it really is. The house is gigantic, right on the river with a beautiful relaxing back yard. We had the white room which was done in white and tastefully appointed with antiques. The shared bath was across the hall and tastefully done. All was very, very comfortable and you felt instantly at home. The best part however are Ann and Steve who are charming, delightful gracious hosts! After two minutes we had been best friends for forty years. Absolutely delightful! We are making plans to be back in Milford often just to stay with Ann and Steve.
