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.
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’s B and B is very cozy and our stay was very comfortable!
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!
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.
Penelope place was fantastic and exactly as described. Very cozy with a lot of character. Perfect for a weekend get away.
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 was a wonderful hostess. she gave us excellent dinner recommendations. the accommodation was perfect if you can handle steep stairs to the loft. The house was cozy and inviting, very romantic. Probably want to rent a car and not rely on Taxi service in Beacon, but we were able to walk into town.
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.
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!
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.
