Blackberry Cottage

 Sunrise, Sunset and Star filled Quarry at Night

“I will long remember the special experience I had at 3 AM seeing the stars reflected brightly in the water,as if shining up from the quarry floor. The shooting stars were beautiful.” ~ Debbie Chadwick

  • Parlor stove with visible flame (propane)
  • South attached patio and natural granite patio overlooking quarries

  • Location: Natural granite patio faces east onto a small, shallow quarry that is separated from the main quarry by the causeway, so view is out onto the main quarry. Sunsets from the backyard. Sunrise from east patio. Full length patio on south. About 25 yards from swimming area. Privately situated in regards to the Huckleberry Hideaway and owner’s home.
  • Recommended for an individual or couple. Excellent for a single woman on retreat. The BBC is bright, cheery, cozy “cute as a button”.
