We had a fantastic stay at Base Camp. It is exactly how it is described – a really great base to explore Beacon. Andrew was a perfect host, very informative and accommodating.
Base camp is the ideal lodging for a few friends or a couple looking for a quiet getaway. Tucked right along Mt Beacon, the description of the place is accurate. Cozy living area and kitchenette downstairs, with fireplace and TV, and bed and bath upstairs. Since my girlfriend and I were just looking for quiet time away from NYC, we spent most of the time sitting in front of the fire watching TV – perfect. Whats great is that you can walk down the hill to Main st and grab a bite. Andrew as a host…
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.
Penelope picked us up from town in her car, which was very nice of her. She also laid on breakfast and built a fire in the old wood stove, in case we wanted it. (We did!) Location is at the foot of Mount Beacon, which was ideal to take a morning hike all the way up to the picture-postcard reservoir and be back for lunch! It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the heart of Beacon town, but enjoyable. Penelope was always available by text to answer any questions.
Penelope’s guest house was absolutely adorable. It was very spacious and my only regret is that we didn’t get to spend more time in it. Penelope was also a wonderful host – left us food for breakfast and some snacks which was very sweet. I also got a chance to hike up the trail behind the house (which Penelope’s son gave me some tips on) and it was a great hike. The bed was also very comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone.
I could not recommend Penelope’s place more highly. Wonderful location – all the peace and quiet of a remote cottage but within a walk (or kind lift from Penelope) of a friendly street full of bars and restaurants. Gorgeous cottage with charm. Lovely touches like a wood fire, breakfast and fab toiletries. Be sure to check out the farmers market on Sunday, and try the trek up the mountain direct from the back garden. I made it half way! Highly recommended.
Penelope and Andrew were great hosts. The setting is beautiful and the apartment is very cozy and exactly as described. I wished we had been able to stay longer to enjoy the hiking trail nearby!
Penelope’s B and B is very cozy and our stay was very comfortable!
Very helpful hosts that went out of their way for us. The space was comfortable and we felt at home in no time. Their home is also located directly next to the trail head leading up to lambs hill and mount beacon, which was a huge bonus for us. Would definitely return.
Penelope was a great host. She made sure that we were comfortable and made it easy to check in.
