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 was a lovely stop on a tour of the Hudson Valley. It was a short ride from the main attractions in Beacon and right at the base of a beautiful hike on Beacon Mountain. The place has a rustic, quaint feel that gives a lot of character.
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.
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.
Our host was generous and thoughtful. We had a wonderful experience.
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!
Base Camp is right on the outskirts of Beacon. A 1/2 mile walk to town (and one of the best restaurants/beer bars!) It’s a private cottage with a very cozy living area downstairs complete with wood burning stove (which we actually used on what was likely the last cold Spring evening of the year). The bedroom and bath are upstairs. The stairs are quite steep and perhaps not for everyone. We had no issues. Penelope was a great hostess. We will likely stay there on our next visit to Beacon.
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 …
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.
Penelope’s B and B is very cozy and our stay was very comfortable!
