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.
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.
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.
Andrew was very polite and accommodating. He gave us a good list of things to do and see, as well as restaurant and bar recommendations. The place was very cozy and clean and exactly what I was looking for. I only stayed for one night and left first thing in the morning, but we had all the privacy we needed and Andrew was just a text away if we needed anything.
Penelope place was fantastic and exactly as described. Very cozy with a lot of character. Perfect for a weekend get away.
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.
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 …
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.
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.
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 fantastic stay at Base Camp. It is exactly how it is described – a really great base to explore Beacon. Andrew was a perfect host, very informative and accommodating.
