QUIET HILLSIDE RETREAT CLOSE TO UNIVERSITY

Ithaca Cottage Rental Photos and Description

cottage with one bedroom, bathroom, and sleeper sofa

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 living space 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. We continue to work toward energy conservation efforts, but the solar panels should meet the majority of our energy needs now. We are cleaning 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 some are building their cuisine around local and seasonal foods. Vegetarian Ithacans have splurged the Moosewood Restaurant and the ABC Cafe, now The Giving Tree, 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 Hazelnut Kitchen, Suzanne's, and many more.

Ducks on the Pond, Chickens on the Hillside: We've joined the local food effort by adding a small flock of Cayuga and Indian Runner ducks to our pond and chickens to the hillside and woods. 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 are constructing a larger garden, arbor and small orchard this year. 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.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the stone cottage last Fall and we could not have been more pleased, both with the accomodations and with Nancy and Buzz, they are just great. Whatever questions we had, they were right there spot-on with answers and advice. We had never been to the area and they were full of great information and suggestions, both for walks and places to which we could drive. The cottage itself is an absolute marvel, we had never seen anything like it and it looks as if every little detail had been considered and made as fine as possible. And the bed and the bathtub are worth the price of admission alone. A great great place, highly recommended.

Even better than promised

Members of my family and I needed an unexpected get away over a holiday week-end - some place where we could relax, have some fun and not worry about myriad little things associated with staying in a hotel or B&B - the Stone Quarry House was the perfect answer!!! We enjoyed our stay on this property immensely. We opted to stay in the apartment. The accommodations were very attractive, comfortable and spacious. The property is lovely, well-maintained, "green", wonderfully quiet but also close to shopping, wine trail, Ithaca attractions, etc. We enjoyed the opportunities provided to either cook our own meals in the well appointed kitchen, to order in or to dine in town. The outdoor barbeque patio was an unexpected treat - the perfect ending for day a spent exploring a few gorges. Nancy Norton is a wonderful hostess and I so appreciated her helpfulness before, during and after our stay. I highly recommend the Stone Quarry House. Thanks again Nancy!

What a Beautiful Space!

What a beautiful space! We had such a lovely, relaxing trip thanks to the peace and quiet of the apartment - truly felt as though we stepped out of the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. The gorgeous grounds and comfortable furnishing made us feel right at home. Can't wait to come back and try the tower and the stone cottage too!

Ithaca is a community full of active artists and musicians. It is a rare night that doesn't offer a live concert or theater event. The Cornell Concert series offers world renown classical and jazz artists as well as exciting world music. A veritable treasure chest of resident musicians frequently play at local venues. Famous for its gorges and state parks, Ithaca has countless hiking trails.

Sapsucker Woods Bird Sanctuary and the Cornell Plantations, some of the most beautifully walks in Ithaca, are just minutes from Stone Quarry House. Nearly twenty screens at Ithaca's movie theaters show a wide range of films from blockbuster hits to lesser known art films you would only expect to see at film festivals or in larger cities.

Dine out at the world famous Moosewood Restaurant, or choose from one of many other fine restaurants in town. Ithaca is famous for its International Cuisine.

Other Activities: skiing, snowboarding

Golf: Ask about access to the Robert Trent Jones designed golf course at Cornell. Buzz is a frequent golfer, and he may be able to help you set up a time to play or advise about other area courses.

Ski: Winter offers its own fun: you can cross country ski right out your front door, or drive twenty minutes to Greek Peak, the largest ski resort in Central New York. Winter also means sledding and ice skating on our own Stone Quarry House pond, or one of three indoor rinks in Ithaca.
