Penelope was a great host. She made sure that we were comfortable and made it easy to check in.
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.
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.
Penelope’s guest house was absolutely adorable. It was very spacious and my only regret is that we didn’t get to spend more time in it. Penelope was also a wonderful host – left us food for breakfast and some snacks which was very sweet. I also got a chance to hike up the trail behind the house (which Penelope’s son gave me some tips on) and it was a great hike. The bed was also very comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone.
This was my first AirBnb experience, and Andrew was incredibly responsive made it easy. I was able to book this property the day before my trip, a huge win after another AirBnb lister had cancelled on me last minute. “Base Camp” is the perfect location for a Beacon trip, super close to Main Street Beacon + Dia, and a great, 2 floor, private, and clean residence.
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 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.
Penelope was very accommodating and picked us up from Dia: Beacon. The house is a perfect location, close walk to Main Street. Small kitchen in the apartment is perfect and Penelope left us some breakfast and snacks! AC kept upstairs and downstairs comfortable. I recommend staying here!
Penelope place was fantastic and exactly as described. Very cozy with a lot of character. Perfect for a weekend get away.
Andrew’s place was great! Very cozy and everything we were looking for on a romantic Valentines. He was a friendly host and even drove us into town to get back to the train station. (He would have picked us up too, but he was snowed in at the time of our arrival. Ha.) We wished we had stayed the whole weekend!
Our host was generous and thoughtful. We had a wonderful experience.
