We have stayed at Stone Quarry House multiple times, and we love it - quiet and beautifully done. Nancy the owner is lovely too. Note that this is not a B&B. This is a nice escape for people who don't want a lot of chatter. You let yourself in, let yourself out, and contact Nancy if you need her.

Thanks so much for your kind review :-) We try to stay out of folks way, but also be available if needed. Personally I like that level of independence when I travel, though I also appreciate an insider's knowledge of the area - so that's the balance I try to accomplish. It is always nice when your family is in...

We couldn't have been more satisfied. As soon as we entered the gate of Hilltop House (at Stone Quarry House) we knew we were in a special place! Gorgeously layed out series of 3 cabins consisting of a living cabin, sleeping cabin and bath cabin, all appointed beautifully...and then we saw the view! Perfect and we do hope to return.

I'm glad the hilltop house worked for you - I also love those views! Thanks for sharing your experience so potential guests can have a better idea of which space is right for them. Though I don't get much opportunity to visit with our hilltop house guests, I hope you'll be able to return to Ithaca and stay with us...

The Stone Quarry House is a great place to stay. Great location, comfortable and relaxing. We always plan to stay at The Stone Quarry House when in Ithaca which is 3-4 times each year. Great owners who make you feel like a part of the family.

We are so happy to have you and your family stay with us while your student is at Cornell! As a graduate myself, it is nice to see students who are dedicated to getting the most out of their time there. It's always nice to see you, and we look forward to your next visit!

My family and I have been staying at home the Stone Quarry House for many years and have always enjoyed a restful comfortable stay. We have stayed at three different spaces there, but have most enjoyed the apartment for our accommodation. Every detail is taken care of for a relaxing stay.

My husband and I, along with our 17 and 19 year-olds spent 4 nights of our recent vacation week at the Hilltop House comprised of 3 separate buildings, atop the hill giving us amazing views of the valley and surrounding hills. Two of us slept in the main cottage on a very comfortable sleeper sofa; there are no curtains and...

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Storage space in the kitchen is limited, so we've tried to be careful about only putting the most useful items in the kitchen area. But if anything else would be useful - please let us know! We have duplicates of almost everything available upon request - a Breville juicer, pasta machines, a crate...

Peaceful, tranquil, & relaxing.One room (small bathroom closet)--but it's large, has a king bed w/extremely comfy sheets & pillows, jacuzzi tub with rain shower head- which got a lot of use after local hikes through waterfalls/state parks, couch which i think pulls out to a bed, 4 wooden/leather chairs,small apartment style fridge, microwave (took...

Thanks for leaving such a detailed review! I love to hear your insights and I'm glad you shared them with other travelers. :-) We usually have three wooden screens in the stone cottage to set up around the tub/sink area to create a bit more privacy. A new housekeeper had removed them before your arrival, but they are back in...

We were really excited to stay at the Tower. Nancy is just lovely and so welcoming to our family including our dogs. The Tower is very comfortable and refreshing. Every aspect is luxurious from soft robes, refreshing shampoo and soaps, coffee and soft crisp sheets. the Tower is perfect for a couple and we enjoyed all 3 nights. The dogs...

Thanks for your review! Our dogs aren't good at catch or Frisbee, so it was a treat to see yours enjoying themselves in the yard. :-) We always appreciate it when guests arrive with their dogs recently groomed and when it is clear that the dogs have come along to enjoy the vacation with the family - not just to...

Thanks for your review! I'm so glad you were able to take the time to relax on the back deck of the tower cottage. I like the way the tower cottage is tucked back into the woods a bit and, even though the front of the cottage is open to the pond, the drive, and the other buildings, when on...

Excellent choice for a weekend stay that required close proximity to Ithaca College and yet enough distance for peace and quiet. Lovely property. The Tower Cottage was immaculate and well appointed. Although marketed as a romantic getaway, it was comfortable for three, but four would be fine too. We'll be sure to recommend to others looking for lodging in the...

Thanks so much for your review! I'm glad to hear that the tower cottage was comfortable for three. I know the sleeper sofa is super comfortable, but another reviewer recommended that the tower might feel crowded with more than two, so I usually recommend it for two. The sleeper sofa does take up much of the main living area, but...

We went in January and found this place extraordinarily quiet and private indeed behind a gated entrance. We were seeking comfort and simple elegance and found it here.

Thanks for your review, which really captures the qualities I really like about the stone cottage in winter! While our Ithaca winters can drag on a bit longer than I'd like, when settled down by the fire with a book and a dog and maybe a choice beverage, there isn't much better!
