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’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.
Penelope picked us up from the train station right when we arrived. The house is very cozy. It’s an easy walk to get into town, and perfect if you want to hike up Mt. Beacon as a trailhead is right there. We had a fire the night we stayed, and saw turkeys in morning.
Great cozy apartment located perfectly between the vibrant downtown of Beacon and the start of a hike up the mountain. Everything was as described and made for a convenient one night stay for a weekend getaway from NYC.
We had a quick stay but it was great – Penelope was there to help us in, and very kind and accommodating. From the back yard you can hike right in to Mt Beacon which was great.
The space was very cozy with a wood burning fireplace stocked with wood, jazz music playing on the stereo and a large oversized couch for curling up with one of the many books on the bookshelf. The coffee, tea, bagels, butter and toaster were a nice touch and much appreciated during our relaxing morning. The location was very pretty– a beautiful property and very quiet, and just a mile from Main St. The pillows on the bed weren’t great, but everything else was perfect.
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!
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…
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.
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.
