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.
Andrew was a fantastic host. Very quick to answer emails/texts and really accommodating overall. The house was clean and exactly as described in the listing. We loved staying here and would definitely come back again and recommend this house to others!
Penelope place was fantastic and exactly as described. Very cozy with a lot of character. Perfect for a weekend get away.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
We had a wonderful and comfortable stay in this pretty location. Just what we needed to feel away from the city amid the woods. Yet within striking distance of the town and all it has to offer.
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.
