This place is gorgeous! I have been spending lots of time in the Tyrone area re-exploring, because I recently retired and inherited the home I grew up in. One day during the spring, I discovered Stony Point. I was immediately infatuated with its beauty! I just had to stop my car in the middle of the street to admire the impressive hillside home! Later that day, I visited Stony Point’s website and read about its rich history. A few days ago, when a friend was visiting from New Jersey, I decided to pull into the driveway, ring the doorbell, and ask for a brochure. I really wanted to impress my friend with the architecture of this 1920 Stone Greek Revival and was hoping for a possible peek inside. When innkeeper Paul greeted us at the door, he was most friendly and invited us in for a grand tour of the home. This place is amazing with its original character still intact! The center hall is spacious with a magnificent staircase and palladium window. The spacious parlor has its original lighting and fireplace and also has beautiful views! An unbelievable crystal chandelier creates an elegant and enchanting atmosphere in the dining room! There is a beautiful library, with handcrafted built-in bookcases! The many bedrooms are spacious, plush, and very inviting! The porch has great furnishings with a beautiful hillside view. The grounds are amazing with a walking trail leading to the famous Tyrone Bluffs. I am happy the new owner and innkeeper appreciate the history of this fine home and want to continue to preserve and share it with their guests. Thank you Paul for a most enjoyable tour! Best wishes to you!
