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.
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.
Base Camp is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting, at the base of Mt. Beacon. Andrew is a great host, making himself readily available to talk or for advice concerning the town, but also equally unavailable if you’re priority is privacy. The home is rustic, charming and cozy. Andrew had snacks, coffee and tea ready upon arrival, as well as a ready to make fire in the wood burning stove. I’d highly recommend his location as a private get away.
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.
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 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 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 was really as friendly of a host as anyone could ask for. Super-accommodating and kind, with extra touches to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The area is lovely and the house, gazebo and guest place is very pretty and peaceful from the outside. Thanks for welcoming us to enjoy the gazebo also, Andrew! Beacon as a city is absolutely great and we had a blast, between exploring Main Street, eating, drinking, and local hikes (do Breakneck Ridge!). I think the actual Base Camp apartment…
Penelope’s B and B is very cozy and our stay was very comfortable!
Base Camp was exactly what we were looking for – a cozy getaway in stunning surrounds just over an hour from New York City. Beacon is a great little town, and neighboring Cold Spring is also a gem. We went hiking up Beacon Hill – – steep mile hike from Base Camp. The cottage itself was very cozy and charming. Andrew was a great host. Very considerate. I would stay again for sure.
Penelope was a great host. Her cabin was very lovely and comfortable. We stayed for a night and slept in – missing the hike with easy access from her land. We’d consider coming back again for sure.
