More Than 100 Years Old
Did you know that the construction of The Old Stone House started more than 100 years ago by an English stone mason named Thomas Sherman? The talents of this stone mason were obvious by the beauty of this old stone building!
In 1974, the son of Thomas packed up his family and moved. He purchased the stone house and spent the next 55 years working on it. Lowell was 94 years old when he finally moved away from the stone house. It was at that time that Tom and Carolyn Saumer started to look into it. Restorations of the home continued for many years. It was not until 2007 that the house was officially recognized as the Sharman House.
Farming is Huge
Farming plays a huge role in the history and purpose of this house. The house and the owners endorse the use of locally grown produce. They make it a huge deal to grow and produce their own produce. This means you can expect the menu to change with the seasons. Homemade soups, quiche, and sandwiches are just a tip of what you can expect to enjoy here.
Carolyn Saumer, one of the owners, proudly does most of the cooking in the home. She does have chefs, but she enjoys getting in the kitchen and doing a lot of the cooking on her own. From time to time, there are guest chefs who stroll through to make a few meals.
