Stone House


Immersed in the natural setting of the Bear Creek Greenbelt, the Stone House grounds provide a manicured green oasis. The lawns, mature trees, plant beds, patio and seating areas offer a tranquil garden setting for both contemplative spaces or as an extension of the house for rentals for special occasions such as weddings.
