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 was great. Kept in touch responds quickly and is always on call. Also we took the train from NYC (grand central). It was about 1.5 hours to Beacon station. Andrew was kind enough to give us a ride from the station but there are taxis. All in all would recommend.
