Welcome to the Stone Quarry House nestled in the hills just two miles east of Ithaca. Luxuriously furnished with Tempurpedic beds, pressed high-count cotton sheets, Jacuzzis and en suite baths, hand-knotted carpets and Stickley furniture, each of our five free-standing private living spaces is a calm retreat from everyday life. Located just minutes from Cornell University and Ithaca College, Stone Quarry house is also convenient to downtown Ithaca and many beautiful walking trails through Ithaca's gorges. Whether you are here for a weekend or a season, Stone Quarry House is the place to stay.

Luxuriously furnished with Tempurpedic beds, pressed high-count cotton sheets, Jacuzzis and en suite baths, hand-knotted carpets and Stickley furniture, each of our five free-standing private living spaces is a calm retreat from everyday life. Located just minutes from Cornell University and Ithaca College, Stone Quarry house is also convenient to downtown Ithaca and many beautiful walking trails through Ithaca's gorges. Whether you are here for a weekend or a season, Stone Quarry House is the place to stay. Eco-tourism and Staying Green: We've purchased wind power from the energy grid in the past, but in the summer of 2008 we installed a large solar array and we tripled that in 2011. We continue to work toward energy conservation efforts, but the solar panels meet our energy needs now, even giving us enough electricity for two electric cars. We clean with eco-friendly products and hanging our sheets out to dry in the fresh country air whenever possible. Local Food Renaissance: Central New York is enjoying a blossoming of local food resources. The Ithaca Farmer's Market is full of locally grown produce and ready to eat foods. Our restaurants are adding locally grown ingredients and many are building their cuisine around local and seasonal foods. Vegetarian Ithacans have splurged the Moosewood Restauran for years. Now the omnivores among us are glad to see local pasture-raised meats showing up on many area restaurant menus. Ask us about our favorites which include Agave, Just a Taste, Bandwagon Brew Pub, Ithaca Beer, Hazelnut Kitchen, Suzanne's, and many more. We've joined the local food effort by building a large fenced chicken run near the stone cottage, giving them lots of room to explore, but keeping them safe from the healthy community of local foxes and the occasional bobcat. We supplement their foraging with local organic grains, resulting in eggs which are naturally high in protein and Omega 3's. They are fun to watch and the eggs are wonderful. We added a larger garden, arbor and small orchard in 200 - and we sometimes find the maintenance overwhelming! Let us know if you are interested and you may be able to join in a picking party, try your hand at canning or drying food, or just try some really local fresh eggs. More

About the neighbourhood
The Stone Quarry House is located in the Ellis Hollow neighborhood of Ithacaa rural/suburban community about two miles from the Cornell campus and four miles from downtown Ithaca. Set on eleven acres, with lovely views from the ridge above the main house, you will find the property a rejuvenating retreat.
Getting around
Most of our guests prefer driving private cars, but some hire cars, particularly when touring wineries (or cideries or breweries or distilleries). Serious hikers walk into town, and it is possible to walk two miles to the East HIll shopping plaza where there are three buses per hour bringing you into the city of Ithaca (and around the county).
