Andrew was a fantastic host. Very quick to answer emails/texts and really accommodating overall. The house was clean and exactly as described in the listing. We loved staying here and would definitely come back again and recommend this house to others!
This was my first AirBnb experience, and Andrew was incredibly responsive made it easy. I was able to book this property the day before my trip, a huge win after another AirBnb lister had cancelled on me last minute. “Base Camp” is the perfect location for a Beacon trip, super close to Main Street Beacon + Dia, and a great, 2 floor, private, and clean residence.
Base Camp is a great place to stay in Beacon – which is a hard place to find anywhere to stay. It’s a cozy, two floor carriage house that feels like home. Tea and biscuits by the wood burning fire in the evening; coffee, bagels and banana bread for breakfast. Close to town but you probably will want to drive.
Andrew was very responsive to our emails and checked in with us during our stay…not too much “checking in” but just enough to be courteous. Space was very clean and comfortable; everything as advertised.
Base Camp is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting, at the base of Mt. Beacon. Andrew is a great host, making himself readily available to talk or for advice concerning the town, but also equally unavailable if you’re priority is privacy. The home is rustic, charming and cozy. Andrew had snacks, coffee and tea ready upon arrival, as well as a ready to make fire in the wood burning stove. I’d highly recommend his location as a private get away.
Andrew was really as friendly of a host as anyone could ask for. Super-accommodating and kind, with extra touches to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The area is lovely and the house, gazebo and guest place is very pretty and peaceful from the outside. Thanks for welcoming us to enjoy the gazebo also, Andrew! Beacon as a city is absolutely great and we had a blast, between exploring Main Street, eating, drinking, and local hikes (do Breakneck Ridge!). I think the actual Base Camp apartment…
Penelope was a wonderful hostess. she gave us excellent dinner recommendations. the accommodation was perfect if you can handle steep stairs to the loft. The house was cozy and inviting, very romantic. Probably want to rent a car and not rely on Taxi service in Beacon, but we were able to walk into town.
Great experience over all. We drove up on a snowy and cold day from Manhattan, and Penelope’s son was there to greet us in the evening. She showed us the place and new a great deal about local restaurants and activities. He also had stocked muffins and coffee for our breakfast the next morning. The house is on a hill and rather picturesque.
We had a great stay at the base camp. Andrew picked us up at the train station and later brought us to Dia which is a must see. We were able to walk back to the base camp from dinner so that was great. We live in the city and are avid walkers so for us it was fine. It does get a little dark as you get close to the house so our iPhone flashlights were very helpful! It was a fun town and we even took a trip to Storm King from there. We used a car service. Andrew told us he would have driven us if …
Penelope place was fantastic and exactly as described. Very cozy with a lot of character. Perfect for a weekend get away.
