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 loved playing frisbee in the yard. Love the sustainability practices as well. We look forward to coming back for another visit soon.
My husband and I just returned from an extremely relaxing 3 night stay here and can't wait to return. The owner, Nancy, could not have been more helpful and pleasant throughout the booking experience and stay. She replied to emails immediately and helped us decide which cottage would best fit our needs. She was there when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. We were most pleased to be able to bring our dog with us. The tower cottage was the perfect size for the three of us. Just note, the stairs to the bed may be a little steep for an elderly/arthritic dog or young child (our dog is 10 and did just fine.)
The location was great too. Just a short 10 min. drive to downtown Ithaca for food, shopping, etc. and 20-30 minutes to many local parks, waterfalls and wineries. There is also a gas station, pharmacy and supermarket even closer if needed.
This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking to getaway from the daily grind, release stress and enjoy nature and each other! Our favorite memories will be just sitting with the windows open or on the back porch reading and taking in the breeze and birds sweetly chirping.
Cannot recommend the Stone House Quarry enough. We will definitely be back!
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 area.
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. If you are seeking glitz & commotion this is not it but should you prefer solitude, relaxation and comfort in front of a real wood fireplace with the simple elegance of Stickley furnishings, a huge and extremely comfortable bed and a Jacuzzi - you are in the right place! Despite great restaurants in Ithaca our best dinner was in front of that beautiful fireplace with a charcuterie platter from The Piggery and a bottle of Eve's Cider from Red Feet Wine Market in town. Our hosts Nancy and Buzz were perfect and left us alone save for an invitation to breakfast that was not on the agenda.
What a lovely and enchanting cottage! Along with being environmentally friendly, we found our accommodations to be comfortable, clean and aesthetically beautiful. The craftsmanship of the cottage was just stunning! We stayed two nights and enjoyed snuggling under the electric blankets on a luxurious temperpedic bed, taking baths in the Jacuzzi tub and sitting by the fire. My husband loved the variety of coffee available and drank cup after cup! The grounds were larger than anticipated, and we had a blast roaming them with our two dogs. We anticipated a small television, so we brought our laptop and some movies. The cottage also had WiFi, so we could stream Netflix through, as well. We traveled to wineries, dinned in town and shopped a bit. All were a convenient drive from the cottage. Best of all, Nancy answered many questions we had before our stay. We had our choice of where to stay (the grounds offer several choices) and she helped us pick which one was best suited to our needs. We are looking forward to traveling there again in warmer weather and trying one of the other choices! Highly recommend!
