I stayed for 2 nights in the post-and-beam cottage at stone quarry house. The house is on the hill away from the other accommodations. I was warned that there was building going next to the cottage but I selected it anyway since it was larger than the Tower house. You enter the property from a separate entrance from the road....

Thanks for your review of the post and beam cottage. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the lack of landscaping and window coverings. Since you've stayed, we have added room darkening shades upstairs and translucent shades downstairs. The first of the two additional houses is almost completed, the second should be completed by September. We have high hopes that the... More

As luck would have it, the hotels were booked a couple months in advance and we found this place in a different listing type. It was perfect for our four day stay. A few minutes from town and even closer to a grocery store and Collegetown Bagels. We stayed in the Tower Cottage and didn't mind the stairs though they... More

This was our first trip to Ithaca. My daughter was looking at Cornell University. I feel so fortunate to have found the Stone Quarry House. We stayed in the Tower Cottage together and we felt like Princesses sleeping in the spire of the cottage! The king bed was so comfortable and the lighting and remote control heat made it very...

Thanks for your thoughtful review of your stay in the tower cottage. The tower definitely has a 'fairy-tale' feel. Tucked into the woods, there is a view of the trees out of most windows making it feel surprisingly secluded even though it is not far from the main house and apartment. I hope you'll have a chance to return. More

We stayed two days in the very charming Tower Cottage. So well appointed, with details we wouldn't have considered beforehand, such as a heated bathroom floor, that now I feel I can't live without. We stayed in December, so while the weather was mild for the time of year, we didn't spend much time on the grounds due to rain.... More

Thanks so much for your review of your stay at the tower cottage last month. I'm glad you enjoyed the heated tile floor - in this case, since the energy is coming from our photovoltaic system, we can enjoy it guilt free! I hope you'll be able to return in warmer weather - though the stone cottage with the wood... More

The Stone Quarry House is unlike any lodging I've ever experienced. We booked for two evenings in May 2015. It's close to the sights and tourist attractions of the area, but it's quite private, removed enough to relax completely. The appointments are "rustic luxury" if that's a genre :) Sheets etc are the highest quality, the place is well cared... More

We've stayed here a few times in The Stone Cottage and plan to keep coming back. In fact, the first time we stayed we were only looking for a nice, simple, long-weekend getaway because we never get the chance to do that. It was so wonderful (Ithaca itself is just right for us) that our second day there we decided... More

Thanks for your review! I'm glad the stone cottage was a good match for you.

This was our second stay in Ithaca and our first at Stone Quarry House. We were so thrilled with our stay.

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.

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.

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.
