Our host was generous and thoughtful. We had a wonderful experience.
Penny and (I believe) her son met us and were very generous and informative. The unit was sweet and rustic and comfortable. My only regret is we didn’t have occasion to use the real fireplace! The location is just outside Beacon and practically a straight shot from Main St.
Base Camp was exactly what we were looking for – a cozy getaway in stunning surrounds just over an hour from New York City. Beacon is a great little town, and neighboring Cold Spring is also a gem. We went hiking up Beacon Hill – – steep mile hike from Base Camp. The cottage itself was very cozy and charming. Andrew was a great host. Very considerate. I would stay again for sure.
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!
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.
We had a great time at Base Camp — we actually ended up walking all the way from the train station down Main Street, which was great (we’re New Yorkers, so the 30-40 minute walk wasn’t too terrible). The apartment was very private and cozy. We also were in walking distance to Mount Beacon, which was an awesome climb to the top. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend and Beacon is a great little town!
We had a wonderful and comfortable stay in this pretty location. Just what we needed to feel away from the city amid the woods. Yet within striking distance of the town and all it has to offer.
Andrew’s property is cozy and beautiful, and he went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable on our stay. The spot is highly recommended, and I can’t wait to come back up to Beacon and stay again.
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.
Soothing jazz music was playing as we entered the space, and plenty of nice amenities were around to be enjoyed. The rental had a nice, writerly feel to it and was very cozy.
Penelope place was fantastic and exactly as described. Very cozy with a lot of character. Perfect for a weekend get away.
