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.
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.
Soothing jazz music was playing as we entered the space, and plenty of nice amenities were around to be enjoyed. The rental had a nice, writerly feel to it and was very cozy.
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 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!
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.
Penelope picked us up from the train station right when we arrived. The house is very cozy. It’s an easy walk to get into town, and perfect if you want to hike up Mt. Beacon as a trailhead is right there. We had a fire the night we stayed, and saw turkeys in morning.
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 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.
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.
Base camp is the ideal lodging for a few friends or a couple looking for a quiet getaway. Tucked right along Mt Beacon, the description of the place is accurate. Cozy living area and kitchenette downstairs, with fireplace and TV, and bed and bath upstairs. Since my girlfriend and I were just looking for quiet time away from NYC, we spent most of the time sitting in front of the fire watching TV – perfect. Whats great is that you can walk down the hill to Main st and grab a bite. Andrew as a host…
