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…
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.
Base Camp is a great place to stay in Beacon – which is a hard place to find anywhere to stay. It’s a cozy, two floor carriage house that feels like home. Tea and biscuits by the wood burning fire in the evening; coffee, bagels and banana bread for breakfast. Close to town but you probably will want to drive.
We had a great time at Base Camp — we actually ended up walking all the way from the train station down Main Street, which was great (we’re New Yorkers, so the 30-40 minute walk wasn’t too terrible). The apartment was very private and cozy. We also were in walking distance to Mount Beacon, which was an awesome climb to the top. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend and Beacon is a great little town!
Andrew’s property is cozy and beautiful, and he went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable on our stay. The spot is highly recommended, and I can’t wait to come back up to Beacon and stay again.
Penelope was a great host. She made sure that we were comfortable and made it easy to check in.
Penelope was right there to greet us when we arrived. The cottage is cozy and a nice place to stay for one night while visiting the area
Great experience over all. We drove up on a snowy and cold day from Manhattan, and Penelope’s son was there to greet us in the evening. She showed us the place and new a great deal about local restaurants and activities. He also had stocked muffins and coffee for our breakfast the next morning. The house is on a hill and rather picturesque.
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 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.
