Welcome! Here you'll find a clean and cozy home tucked along a quiet street in the charming village of Milford. The Red Maple Retreat is just 6-blocks from downtown Milford where food, art, shopping and entertainment abound. A perfect home-base for business and pleasure travelers who want a comfy bed, fast wi-fi, hot coffee and close proximity to the highways, waterways, bike paths and hiking trails of southeast Michigan. All this and an inviting sunroom, too. I look forward to hosting you!
When you enter, you'll notice what so many others have before you - this house has "a good vibe". And it truly does. For sure that comes from a combination of attractive decor, lots of light and exceptional cleanliness. But it also comes from all the love and care that's gone into creating the perfect retreat for business and pleasure travelers who want peace, privacy, and productivity, when required.
This house was built to last in the early '50s and is memorable for its hardwood floors, plaster walls, cove ceilings and window-filled sunroom. The updated and finished lower level offers an equally inviting area to work or relax. Surrounding the house are many hardwoods, pines and perennials providing plenty of peaceful outdoor spots to enjoy a good book, work on your computer or nap in the oversized hammock. This home, this space is perfect for families, business travelers, outdoor enthusiasts, festival-goers, writers and couples. The charm, the peace and the convenience can't be beat.

Hi! I'm Colleen.
Thanks for considering the Red Maple Retreat for your upcoming stay in Milford! I appreciate that. Whether you’re visiting our charming village for business, pleasure or family, I’m confident you’ll enjoy my house and my neighborhood.
There was a time I travelled about 26 days of the months as a corporate Travel Director. No matter where I travelled, I always sought out opportunities to experience a destination like a local. I still do. So, I was pretty thrilled when I first learned of the Vacation Rental By Owner concept. Ever since my first stay at an Airbnb in Sedona, Arizona, it’s been my dream to create a unique experience for my fellow travelers that includes all the comforts and amenities I so appreciate when I'm away from home. I hope you'll agree!
I’m a Speaker, Storyteller, Creative Collaborator as well as native Michigander. I left the state for 10 years travel the world and experience life in a handful of more southerly climes. But, in time, the lure of the Great Lakes State pulled me back. Milford has been my home base for 16 years and I look forward to sharing it with you!
