Spent two nights in the Stone Cottage. Wonderfully cozy for a short fall stay in Ithaca. Fireplace was a beautiful touch. They have clearly thought of all the little details - hooks in every place you'd want one, coffee for the press, just enough creamer for 2 days, electric kettle (much needed for making warm bottles for the baby), small...

My husband and I spent two nights in the Stone Quarry House for an Autumn weekend getaway. I prefer to skip traditional hotels and look for something off the beaten path. To me, and I mean this in a very positive way, it felt like upscale camping. I felt the comforts of the indoors but still connected to the environment....

This is a wonderful place to stay in Ithaca and particularly for visiting Cornell. Campus is less than 10 minutes away but you feel like you are in a magical spot. Each house has beautiful details - hand built by the owners - my favorite is the stone cottage. The owners are wonderful people - Nancy was incredibly kind and...

I stayed for 2 nights in the post-and-beam cottage at stone quarry house. The house is on the hill away from the other accommodations. I was warned that there was building going next to the cottage but I selected it anyway since it was larger than the Tower house. You enter the property from a separate entrance from the road....

Thanks for your review of the post and beam cottage. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the lack of landscaping and window coverings. Since you've stayed, we have added room darkening shades upstairs and translucent shades downstairs. The first of the two additional houses is almost completed, the second should be completed by September. We have high hopes that the...

As luck would have it, the hotels were booked a couple months in advance and we found this place in a different listing type. It was perfect for our four day stay. A few minutes from town and even closer to a grocery store and Collegetown Bagels. We stayed in the Tower Cottage and didn't mind the stairs though they...

This was our first trip to Ithaca. My daughter was looking at Cornell University. I feel so fortunate to have found the Stone Quarry House. We stayed in the Tower Cottage together and we felt like Princesses sleeping in the spire of the cottage! The king bed was so comfortable and the lighting and remote control heat made it very...

Thanks for your thoughtful review of your stay in the tower cottage. The tower definitely has a 'fairy-tale' feel. Tucked into the woods, there is a view of the trees out of most windows making it feel surprisingly secluded even though it is not far from the main house and apartment. I hope you'll have a chance to return.

We stayed two days in the very charming Tower Cottage. So well appointed, with details we wouldn't have considered beforehand, such as a heated bathroom floor, that now I feel I can't live without. We stayed in December, so while the weather was mild for the time of year, we didn't spend much time on the grounds due to rain....

Thanks so much for your review of your stay at the tower cottage last month. I'm glad you enjoyed the heated tile floor - in this case, since the energy is coming from our photovoltaic system, we can enjoy it guilt free! I hope you'll be able to return in warmer weather - though the stone cottage with the wood...

The Stone Quarry House is unlike any lodging I've ever experienced. We booked for two evenings in May 2015. It's close to the sights and tourist attractions of the area, but it's quite private, removed enough to relax completely. The appointments are "rustic luxury" if that's a genre :) Sheets etc are the highest quality, the place is well cared...

Thanks for your kind review and for your description of the hilltop house and why it worked well for you! It can be a hard place to describe, because it is so unusual, but you did a great job!

We've stayed here a few times in The Stone Cottage and plan to keep coming back. In fact, the first time we stayed we were only looking for a nice, simple, long-weekend getaway because we never get the chance to do that. It was so wonderful (Ithaca itself is just right for us) that our second day there we decided...

Thanks for your review! I'm glad the stone cottage was a good match for you. We've added another 'green' feature this year - we will offset the carbon expenditures of your travel to and from the Stone Quarry House via the Finger Lake Climate Fund and Sustainable Tompkins. The money they collect is awarded to local low and moderate income...

This was our second stay in Ithaca and our first at Stone Quarry House. We were so thrilled with our stay. The grounds are so beautiful - I took my dog each day down to the small pond at the end of the drive to see the Cayuga duck that hung out there. It was quiet, private and convenient to...

Thanks for your review of your stay at the apartment. I'm always glad when dogs can really enjoy their family's visit with walks and time together while they are here. I hope another trip to Ithaca is in your future!
