Cute, cozy & comfortable place — close to nature, but not too far from town. Penelope and Andrew were helpful and welcoming. Great overnight retreat from the city.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We had a lovely time. The house is far enough from town to feel like a retreat in the woods and close enough to still be accessible for going out, shopping, etc… Both andrew and Penelope were accommodating and kind. It was quiet, well decorated and supplied as well as comfortable. We will definitely consider staying there again if we were to go up to the area!
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 …
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.
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.
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.
Penelope picked us up from town in her car, which was very nice of her. She also laid on breakfast and built a fire in the old wood stove, in case we wanted it. (We did!) Location is at the foot of Mount Beacon, which was ideal to take a morning hike all the way up to the picture-postcard reservoir and be back for lunch! It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the heart of Beacon town, but enjoyable. Penelope was always available by text to answer any questions.
