You can still see the hill where rock was cut out of the slope. What can you do with the space? Make rock art, design a mosaic, bring chalk and draw pictures, make a cairn. Surprise us! At the edge of the quarry is a small fire pit area for nighttime gathering and star gazing. Look in the Neighborhood section for distances to popular town, activities and venues!

In the winter months when snow is likely (October through April) AWD or 4WD is recommended along with all weather or snow tires with good tread. Before making a reservation, please read the Rules and Polices to make sure you are comfortable and aware of guest expectations. We want to make your trip as fantastic and memorable as possible! Here are just a few more things to keep in mind: Check-In and Check-Out: Plan your travel on our listed 4PM arrival and 11AM departure times. Changes in times may be available for an additional fee if possible. Please give at least 24 hours notice for requests, last minute requests may not be possible as cleaning and service schedules are planned in advance. - We have awesome neighbors, help keep us awesome neighbors too! While the home is in the country and private, noise does travel so please follow the quiet hours and keep outdoor noise down after 9PM. - We are dog friendly, no cats. Sorry, we love them too! One dog max, with additional fee. - No parties. If there are 8 people on the reservation there should be 8 people at the house. Please reach out to us if you would like to have daytime visitors. - We have a private septic and well. Be conscientious of water use in the dryer months and no water lawn games, sprinklers, slides or kiddie pools. They can quickly drain a well leaving you with no water or brown water. And for the septic, only flush TP down the toilets. - If you smoke outside do NOT put out cigarettes on the deck, throw butts on the driveway or lawn. If you smoke inside the home there will be a $500 fine. I don't want that, you don't want that. Let's just not. Winter: October through April when snow and ice are likely, guests should have either winter tires or all season tires. Check the weather before arrival and plan your trip accordingly. If you are unfamiliar with driving in snow look for tips online at sources like AAA. The driveway is plowed, maintained and shoveled to the door. A shovel is provided for you so you can maintain a safe walkway during your stay.
