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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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…
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 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 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.
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.
Very accurate to the posted description. Lovely set up – Penelope left us breakfast and stocked the mini fridge. After check in, she left us alone which was appreciated. Super hot weekend by the AC set up kept us cool. Highly recommend.
