We stayed in the apartment over the garage for six nights in July 2012. The apartment is very private and spacious. The bedroom has windows on three sides, and the night breezes were heavenly. There were some fireflies at the windows one night so we had our very own fireworks display! We appreciated all of the amenities, including the nice outdoor patio space and the excellent wi-fi service.
I love that Nancy is concerned about preserving the environment, from the solar panels on the property to the recycling and composting facilities in the rental unit.
The location is convenient to Cornell and Ithaca, and there is a large grocery store nearby. We used this location as a home base for our travels around the Finger Lakes region. It is a great value when compared to area hotels.
Nancy went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied with our stay. I highly recommend the Stone Quarry House!
