The Stone Quarry House has five free-standing rentals - the stone cottage, the tower cottage, the apartment, the hilltop house,and the post and beam house. Each has a king or queen bed and a superior queen sleeper sofa. Each unique space is rented independently - they are spaced far enough apart from each other to allow for privacy, but close enough that larger groups can rent more than one space and easily visit each other and enjoy the communal outdoor space together.
The stone cottage has an open floorplan (400 sq. ft.). It offers a Tempurpedic king-size bed and a surprisingly comfortable queen size sleeper sofa. A large Jacuzzi tub with a shower is open to the room, although three wooden screens are available for increased privacy. The breakfast nook has a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and Stickley Mission Limbert cafe chairs and table. There are two Stickley Mission lounge chairs with footstools before the wood burning fireplace,. The cottage is heated and air-conditioned, although because it is partially built into a small hillside, the interior temperature stays fairly stable. An overhead fan provides additional air circulation. The cottage has cable television and high speed internet access.
The tower cottage is a two story tower and a main living area of about 22' x 11'. It is tucked into the woods with views of the hillside and pond, and private back deck.
The living area is furnished with Stickley Mission furniture - a leather sleeper sofa, side tables, tabouret tables, a flat screen television on a Harvey Ellis console, a Stickley rocker and a footstool. The dining area has a round Mission oak dining table with four chairs. The kitchenette has a small fridge and freezer, microwave oven, induction burner, coffee maker, and plates, glasses, utensils, etc. French doors lead to a private back deck in the woods with two comfy chairs and footstools.
The first floor of the tower has a glass tiled shower, waterless toilet, and heated floor tiles around the sink and changing area. A wrought iron railing and cantilevered stone steps bring you upstairs to an luxuriously comfortable organic (latex, wool and cotton) California-king bed, custom made for the space by the Southard Company, a fourth generation family owned business in Syracuse, NY. A door at the top of the stairs opens out to a small wrought iron balcony. The tower is heated with an air-to-air electric heat pump and it has wifi and cable television.
The apartment, in a free-standing building, is designed for extended stay. The private entrance area leads upstairs to the open living space. The dining area is convenient to the fully equipped kitchen. The living room is furnished with a sleeper sofa, Stickley Mission oak lounge chair, foot stool, blanket chest, and an armoire which houses the television (with cable). The bedroom has a superior king-size bed made up with high-count cotton sheets, down pillows and comforter. The bathroom is accessible from the bedroom or the living area, allowing for extra privacy for parties of three or four. The apartment has WIFI and cable televison.
The hilltop house is actually three buildings - all rented as one unit for your exclusive use - a main living cabin, a sleeping cabin, and a washhouse. It offers lots of privacy and more space than the other spaces. There is a queen size bed in the sleeping cottage, and the option of setting up a very comfortable queen size sleeper sofa in the main living area.
The hilltop house is a showcase for the skills of local blacksmith, Doran Van Dorn, who designed and crafted the lights, fixtures and deck railing. The house is located on the crest of the hill overlooking the main house with stunning views. With stone roofs and windows all around you, nature is easily accessible. When sitting on the deck which is cantilevered out over the hill, you may feel like you are soaring over the valley with the birds.
The main cabin is 16’x20’. It is surrounded by an 1,200 sq. ft. deck with a stone table with chairs for eight on the east side and a thickly cushioned loveseat, cocktail table and two big comfy armchairs on the north side. The gas grill is on the west side of the deck next to another stone table.
The cabin is constructed of logs and hemlock beams with a rustic stone roof. The north wall of the main cabin has two large floor to ceiling arched glass windows set in hemlock frames and a glass door leading out to the deck, while the other main cabin walls are made of stone for the first three feet with screened windows continuing up to the roof line. The sleeping cottage and the washhouse are all wood construction.
Though the buildings are rustic, the furnishings are not! The main living area has a super comfortable queen size sleeper sofa, two leather Harden arm chairs, an oversize ottoman, and a coffee table. The interior dining area has a round table and four chairs with arms.
The kitchen area is defined by stone countertops with a bluestone sink, an under-counter fridge, an induction burner, a French press with freshly ground coffee, an electric kettle, a large Breville microwave oven, and a Breville countertop oven. [Also available upon request are an Instant Pot/rice cooker, a Cuisinart egg cooker (both of them are surprisingly helpful little gadgets!), a Breville juicer, and almost any other gadget or culinary implement you might need.] There also are dishes, utensils, glasses, mugs, and pots and pans.
A sleeping cottage next-door (about ten feet from the main building and joined to it with a four foot wide granite walk) is furnished with a queen size WJSouthard ‘Cazanovian’ organic latex mattress with a 4” wool pillow top covered in cotton, and a Misson-style bedroom suite from Harden.
The washroom is in a third building, about six feet from the main living area (still on the deck, and the walk between the door of the cottage and the washroom is covered). The room is divided in thirds, with the sink as you enter, and the Colorado red sandstone shower and the toilet in separate rooms to the left and right.
The hilltop house has wifi but it does not have television.
