CAMPING and Picnic area . Quarry View is a unique 334 year old Brownstone quarry that is listed as a Historic National Landmark. Here you will find natural springs that flow from what we call "The wall of water" down to one of our small waterfalls. We also have many artifacts including dinosaur tracks and carved dates in the stones in the walls that go back to 1887. There is a trail that leads back in time to an area with 80 foot brownstone walls left from the quarry operations. Here you can find a rear patio where a musician will enjoy the acoustics unlike any other. Tuesday and Saturday Drum circles 6:30-9 with a sunset ceremony. We sit 50 feet above the water upon the ledges that overlook the Brownstone Discovery and Adventure park below .

This place is amazing! The view of the quarry and the lake is beautiful. Dean and Darlene were phenomenal hosts and great to chat with. We only stayed an evening as we were making our way up to Maine, but would have loved to have stayed longer. We arrived Saturday evening and caught the end of the drum circle, which we recommend checking out! There is so much to discover here, while also maintaining a peaceful/mindfulness vibe. We highly recommend!!

Hope you're not afraid of heights! The views are spectacular, though the price is equally steep... Great hosts!

My husband and I decided to take a small weekend getaway. This location exceeded our expectations. What Dean and Darlene have done to this old quarry is amazing. This was a great, quiet spot. Dean and Darlene was super friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Already recommended to friends and plan on staying again!
