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.
Penelope was very accommodating and picked us up from Dia: Beacon. The house is a perfect location, close walk to Main Street. Small kitchen in the apartment is perfect and Penelope left us some breakfast and snacks! AC kept upstairs and downstairs comfortable. I recommend staying here!
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 charming unit was as described. Quiet and private and right at the bottom of Mt. Beacon which was perfect for the one hour hike to the top. Penelope was there to greet us upon arrival. We were only there for one night. The breakfast was simple and a nice touch. Best to drive to Main Street because it’s a fairly long street.
Penelope’s B and B is very cozy and our stay was very comfortable!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
