"I stayed at QUARRY HOUSE for 2 nights in October 09 and was delighted with the experience. I opted for the In-house Guest Bedroom (big enough for 2 adults & a child) w/semi-private walk-in shower on the 2nd floor of the main house. An entire suite is also available in a semi-attached carriage house. The guestroom I stayed in was lofted above the Great Room, which gave a very airy, open feeling, esp. when the double doors were open. The opposite wall opened onto a small balcony-like enclosure overlooking the outdoor patio, recessed between the main & carriage house(perfect for relaxing with a drink/cigar in the cool of the evening).
Fees are quite reasonable considering the high quality of the accommodations. One rental option includes full run of the kitchen and expansive den. The semi-attached "Carriage House" suite (w/full kitchen, gas fireplace, & jet-bath) affords more privacy, w/2 night minimum.
ACCOMMODATIONS: Furnishings are tastefully country-rustic, with some nice extra touches (a rocking chair, selection of recent novels & video games, etc.) & amply suited my needs. The property is less than 10 years old and very well cared-for, both in appearance and function.
QUARRY HOUSE is, itself, something of a marvel. Designed by "Quarry-Meister" Mitch, it was built within a SCENIC old limestone quarry that Mitch has carefully re-landscaped to accent its Rugged Naturalism. Visitors will appreciate the house's interior details, including unique architectural stonework that incorporates the native rock substratum (esp. the Great Room in the main house...truly impressive).
NOTE: Guests are permitted to wander in the surrounding quarry, but asked not to climb on the tumbled boulders (for obvious safety reasons). The entire property backs onto a LARGE marvelous wooded area, thru which a gang of wild turkeys trotted one memorable frosty morning. At night, the stars in the pitch black sky are spectacular, not the pathetic handful of fitful "tea lights" you sometimes glimpse from the city. A great spot for astronomy buffs, or anyone else curious to see what a night sky OUGHT to look like!
This one is very easy to find and also very convenient, being just a stone's throw from Egg Harbor and other points of interest in the "Core of the Door."
Thanks again, Mitch & Mary!
