House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

Come relax outside on the 30 foot deck in our unique E Fay Jones vacation cottage.

As you walk into the lower level you are greeted with natural stone tables and sofa base, boulders used to give it a grotto feeling. The sofa/bench can be used as a single twin bed. The main bathroom is also on the lower level, the shower was created to mimic a small waterfall, the bathing area can be concealed from the garden room by using the pocket french doors. This level is very organic, built with large boulders. In times of heavy rains, a small amount of water may pool in the hallway leading to the bathing area. This is a natural occurrence and does not affect the unique structure.

A spiral staircase leads from the lower/entry area to the main living area which in includes the dinning, kitchen and living areas. This area features redwood floors and linear redwood boards with textured white walls throughout. Features floor to ceiling windows. The dinning table is movable through out the main living area as well as movable stools/end tables. The kitchen stove/sink/refrigerator unit is original (50 years old this year) and was used in railroad cars. There is minimal freezer space and no ice maker, so we recommend you bring ice with you. The stainless steel sink is built into the stainless steel counter top. There is a ductless heating and air unit located on the 3rd level sleeping loft and two in-wall dual A/C and Heating Unit located on the main living area, 2nd level. In cooler months - Infrared heaters are on the first two levels which can be used in addition to the two in-wall units located on the main floor. In summer - there are fans on all three levels, that can be used in addition to the two in-wall units located on the main floor. The living area features two built in benches that can be used as twin beds. This main floor has great views and access to the 30 foot deck, complete with two flambeaux grills, attached to the steel deck supports. Due to insurance purposes these are now just architectural details and do not function as grills or lights. The deck extends into the trees allowing a beautiful view.

Up another level is the loft with a queen-sized bed and wonderful views of the outdoors and beautiful architecture. The floor is also constructed of redwood boards laid on their sides. The railings surrounding the sleeping loft are rather low and does not accommodate small children.

Due to the nature and history of the dwelling, we cannot accept pets on the property.

Stoneflower is located within a dry county.

We do have a minimum stay of two nights on weekends but will accommodate one night stays during the week depending on availability. Please contact the owner to inquire about availability of one night stays.

                                                          Unique place to stay, but recommend staying during warmer months

                                                          Andy S.

                                                          My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. We were looking for something unique, and we got that for sure. However, it was cooler than average for April, and we even woke up to snow one morning. There is no major source of heat on the bottom level. This is where the shower is, so that was a major bummer. We could literally see our breath down there! We built a fire, and even this was not enough to sufficiently warm the area. Also, whatever you do, DO NOT ask about the gas fire pits on the deck. I was rudely told that it was “all over VRBO” that we could not use these. I did double check, and yes, it is on the website. I had not read all the fine print (my mistake), and was simply asking. No need for rudeness. If you are looking for a unique place to stay, this fits the bill. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but we likely will not return.

                                                          Stoneflower was an amazing experience, especially if you appreciate architecture.

                                                          Joni E.

                                                          We really enjoyed staying at the Stoneflower and learning more about the architect, Fay Jones. We will definitely be telling all of our friends about this amazing cottage!

                                                          Wonderful unique cottage

                                                          Phoebe L.

                                                          Stoneflower offers the opportunity to stay in a unique Fay Jones Cottage in a beautiful woodland setting near Greers Ferry Lake. We loved being up in the trees and enjoyed spending time on the deck and in the garden. The lower level "cave," complete with grotto shower, was a special experience. Perfectly comfortable for two adults and two children. We would love to stay here again!

                                                          Beautiful, unusual cabin

                                                          Brian C.

                                                          Stoneflower Cabin is very well maintained. Of course, the architecture is amazing! Looks just like all the pictures we’ve seen, only cooler in person :) Cabin had everything we needed. The only slight negative was that the oven was difficult to figure out (can’t see any numbers on the knobs) but we managed. We also hiked the Bridal Veil Falls trail, which was very pretty. As we left, we ate breakfast at Red Apple Inn. Highly recommend the Tropical French Toast :) Our entire stay was everything we hoped for!

                                                          Stoneflower is the Perfect Weekend Retreat!

                                                          Samantha R.

                                                          Once again, this was a wonderful place to spend a weekend! The location is perfect for hiking and the property itself is the perfect setting to help you forget about work and spend an evening relaxing with your family! My husband, daughter, and I have now stayed here twice and I am sure we will stay again! While we did not have to call her this time - since my husband did not get lost on the second attempt ;) - Trish is always amazing! She was helpful the first time we stayed and certainly maintains this property. Worth the stay!

                                                          This stay was a birthday celebration for my sweetheart and Love of my Life. She was very happy and this home was the nicest surprise for her. The place is definitely not child friendly or for anyone with a mobility issue. But it is very beautiful and unique.

                                                          The owner was so nice and helpful and made our stay wonderful.
