SONGS ON MILSON is well positioned to have a commanding view both up & down the river , also perfectly positioned to  capture the afternoon summer breeze. If you love water then there is no other place. Just sit back on the deck, watch the the tide rise and  the boats pass by. 

Songs is a tranquil, modern and extremely relaxing place, with all the mod cons to keep you comfy. An idyllic  place, to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world, a  place to gather your thoughts and reflect, do some fishing or perhaps some crab trapping from the front door.
