Harmony Hill has 70 private acres, with a couple of yurts, a cabin we call the mountain chalet, hiking trails and a fieldstone labyrinth. The yurts are tucked in the woods. The cabin is at the edge of the woods. Sit on your deck and read a book. Enjoy the sounds of nature. Chipmunks scurry. Birds call to one another. Treetops chatter with gentle breezes. Maybe you’ll want to write a poem or take a nap. If you’re feeling a little ambitious, follow the lower trail as it crosses a small creek and goes through the white pine forest. Take the upper trail where you can pick blackberries in season. Follow a stone fence to see where it leads. Find the trail that ends up behind the yurts. I won’t tell you where Whimsical Meditation Corner is. I’ll let it be a surprise.

River Stone Manor
The Manor home was discovered in the early 2000's. The secluded beauty of the property inspired the construction of the banquet hall which officially opened in 2003. Since then, the River Stone Manor has been one of the finest venues in the capital district for weddings, corporate events and social gatherings. The newly-renovated Banquet Facility has been placed on a knoll offering unspoiled views of the river and surrounding landscape. The Banquet Facility can comfortably seat up to 325 guests depending on your needs and features a full wall of windows and French doors which open up to a beautiful patio. This newly built facility offers perfect acoustics for your musical hosts and provides incredible photo opportunities for your photographers.
