The Stone Quarry House is wonderful. Just got back from a week in the stone cottage, and I can't wait to go back. It is beautiful, quiet and elegant. The care and craft in the cottage-- and across the entire eco-friendly property-- is inspiring. Guests with refined sensibilities will appreciate the luxe touches (Tempurpedic mattress, super soft towels and sheets, Stickley furniture, etc.). It's a true respite from the everyday, and a great place to experience the best of Ithaca's natural beauty.

“Beautiful and relaxing!”

Myself and two of my best friends stayed at the Stone Quarry House for a fun and relaxing "girls weekend." It was one of the most beautiful and picturesque places I had ever been! The property is just gorgeous - like out of a movie. Beautiful architecture, a serene little lake and cute dogs - oh my!

We stayed in the apartment which was perfect! It was stocked with everything a traveler would ever need to feel right at home. The place was spotless and homey... we didn't want to leave. The bed was so comfortable, I fell asleep on it at 10:30 on a Saturday night!! Yikes!

In response to other reviewers... I'm absolutely stunned that anyone would ever suggest that the rooms are anything but immaculate! Both the apartment and cottage were as clean as a whistle and decorated beautifully. I fell in love with the photographs that lined the walls in the apartment! And to say the beds are uncomfortable, I guess that person doesn't appreciate cozy mattresses, big fluffy comforters and giant pillows!

We also had a tour, given by Nancy, the nicest woman you'd ever want to meet, of the cottage. It is outstanding! It is an impressive arts and crafts style cottage perfect for a romantic get-away!

If you are ever in Ithaca - a terrific little town by the way - do yourself a favor and stay here! It was the best B&B I've ever stayed at and we can't wait to come back!

Thanks Nancy!

This property and its owners are amazing. It was a relaxing, beautiful place to stay. The morning's by the pond with a cup of tea and a book is just the type of meditative and relaxing moment anyone can use.
I was here for a girl's weekend (perfect) but I would also bring my husband and two small children to stay. There is plenty of room in both the apartment (where I stayed) and the cottage. Everything is really well done with a great style ala Frank Lloyd Wright.
The bed was so comfortable and beautiful. The apartment was nice and clean and the fact that there was a full kitchen was great.
Nancy is wonderful and caring. She is very helpful and knowledgeable about Ithaca. Thank you for the lovely time. We can only hope we were as good of guests as you were hostess.

Thank You.

“Perfect for a Loving Couple”
Reviewed 16 April 2008 for a stay in June 2007

The Stone Quarry Cottage is an open plan, large, one room cottage built of quarried stone and rich hardwoods. It is tucked into the side of a hill and thus benefits from the natural coolness in the summer and warmth in the cooler months. It pays homage to the land and natural building materials. There is a lot of natural light and if you wish, fresh air provided by the many windows. AC is available if needed.

The Jacuzzi bathtub sits in one corner of the room. The comfy king size bed juts from the opposite wall. A fireplace faces two leather armchairs. The toilet is closeted and relatively private. A coffee maker, small fridge, microwave and TV are all available. There is an Ethernet jack in the room-bring a cord. The grounds are well kept and parking is close.

Maid service and food are not available on the premises. Check out the website - it is very well done with many photos.

If you enjoy being together, this is a great retreat.

“A wonderful honeymoon”
Reviewed 9 August 2007

person found this review helpful

The Stone Quarry House was just what we were looking for for our honeymoon. We stayed in the stone cottage. The jacuzzi was wonderful and the whole place was so beautiful. It was simple and elegant and yet very natural. We loved the character of the place. It was great having the privacy of our own place away from home with everything we needed right there. The owners were more than helpful and so welcoming. We were completely at ease. We would definitely reccommend this place to our friends!

My husband and I stayed for 7 nights in the apartment during a return visit to Ithaca to decide if we still want to move there. The Stone Quarry House definitely helped sell us! The pond is so peaceful and at night there are millions of fireflies everywhere. The apartment was spectacular, beatiful layout, construction, hardwood floors, granite. Very tastefully decorated so it was welcoming and comfortable but not over done. The bed was SOOOO comfortable. It's not a tempurpedic like in the stone cottage. It was just so cozy, my husband and I didn't get out of bed til near noon on one of the rainy days. There is also a full kitchen with just about every kitchen tool you could need plus plenty of dishes and a dishwasher.

My favorite aspect of this place is that it's reasonably priced at just over $1000 for the week with tax. We were also looking for a place that was dog-friendly and this place provided that. Nancy was so helpful with extra towels for the dogs and crates for them for when we went out to dinner. The only drawback to this place is there is no daily maid service so be prepared to clean up after yourself a bit if you're going to stay for a whole week. I think this aspect helps keep the price down. I will definitely be recommending this place to family and friends when we are living in Ithaca. Thanks Nancy for everything!

“Ideal for a visit to Cornell”
Reviewed 24 May 2007 for a stay in May 2007

We spent three nights in The Stone Cottage and the accomodation was perfect for us. We loved the atmosphere of the cottage and the tranquillity of the surroundings. It was spotlessly clean and very private. We were in Ithaca to visit Cornell and found it very convenient. Thanks Nancy, we’ll be back!

I recommend looking at the Stone Quarry website which is informative and accurate. [--]
