Connection is important. We get it.

Every aspect of the Stone Cottage takes this priority into account, from the welcoming common rooms and open chef’s kitchens to the naturally lit board rooms and enticing outdoor spaces. We created a place for individuals and teams to disconnect from the outside world, welcome new ideas and grow together. Big ideas are born here.

When you lease Stone Cottage, the property is yours. Plan your own days or leverage our team of expert planners to create a memorable, custom experience for your group’s unique needs. Learn more about our planning process.
