Beacon is reminiscent of towns you see in movies. A small, bustling main street lined with galleries, restaurants and shops. Unfortunately it's no longer a secret as it has been featured in several publications like the New York Time's, 'Great Places to Visit.'
Explore the Hudson Valley, or take the train to Manhattan to spend the day shopping, sight-seeing or enjoying a Broadway show. If you've come here to escape, there are numerous outdoor activities that highlight picturesque views and the sought after quiet many people desire. Beacon has also become a cultural center in the art world; attractions include DIA Foundation museum, Art and Antique Galleries, open artist's studios and even a glass blowing shop.
In Beacon during the spring, fall and summer months there are various outdoor festivals, as well as a farmers market on the waterfront every Sunday. In the winter months the area is recognized for it's many cross country skiing trails. Year round, on the second Saturday of every month the galleries in Beacon stay open until 9 PM serving wine and snacks. Join the crowds exploring Main Street.
A true description of Beacon would be far too long for an easy read. We've lived here our whole lives and discover something new every weekend. Whether it be a new distillery, shop or festival. Living here for nearly 30 years, we continue to be amazed, enthusiastic and eager to share Beacon with you. We won't spoil all the surprises; come explore and fall in love.
Our adult daughter joined my husband and I for a weekend in the West Point area. My husband went to a football game and my daughter and I went to an apple orchard and wondered around Beacon and Cold Spring. It was a wonderful weekend and the Mountain house was perfect. It was immaculately clean and met all of our needs. It is a small house which has been well designed for maximum use of space. The owners are very helpful. They provided information prior to our arrival and also guided us to great restaurants while we were there.
There is a nice yard. If you have small children, you should know that the house is on a highway, and it is very close to the road. This was not an issue for us.
We highly recommend this property.
My family (husband, myself, 5-year-old, and 2-year-old) just had a nice three-night stay at this house. I don't have much to add that hasn't been said in previous reviews (which I found VERY helpful!). I'll clarify that the house is just SOUTH of the turn for Lapis. Even though a previous reviewer had noted this, we missed the turn at first. It also helped to remember that the driveway was where the streetlight was.
The owners were so welcoming and thoughtful, and very responsive. The home was, as others noted, very clean and comfortable. It was better than the photos indicate! The first thing we did was move all the breakable decorative things to higher ground, out of the reach of the 2-year-old. :) The kids had a blast running around on the hardwood floors (which we don't have at home). The fully loaded TV and wifi were nice touches. The house was well-stocked in terms of linens, towels, extra pillows/blankets, and kitchen supplies. It was also nice to have dishwashing and laundry detergents available (though we didn't use the latter).
If you're staying here and needing groceries, do yourself a favor and drive the extra few miles to a big supermarket. I made a quick run to the Key Food in downtown Beacon and was pretty underwhelmed.
We were very happy with our stay and would love to return!
We had a great stay at this immaculate property. The kitchen is well appointed for all of your needs and the gracious hosts even left us a gift basket of Beacon goodies. The house is centrally located to everything in Beacon and Cold Spring. We enjoyed a relaxing time here and highly recommend this place. One thing to note is that while the property is near Mt. Beacon, it is right on the main road in the town. So, you will hear road noise at night, etc...
The home was cozy, peaceful, and well-appointed. Ron and Lisa were fantastic with communication and information ... the entire process was a breeze. We stayed in the house for a weekend wedding, and it was a perfect place to prepare and rest our heads. Highly recommended! Convenient to transit and all that Beacon and Cold Spring have to offer.
This was the 3rd time I have rented the Mountain House - and, as usual, had a great stay. This is such a great little house - plenty of space, fully equipped kitchen with laundry, good television service and a nice little porch to enjoy the evenings. It is just a few minutes drive from Beacon - so restaurants and shopping are really close. Also close to Cold Spring and lots of trailheads for great hikes. The owners, Ron and Lisa, are wonderful - always right there if you need anything. Free Wifi too. I have stayed there alone and with my husband, and felt entirely safe and comfortable every time. I highly recommend this as a little home away from home - whether you are local or from across the country.
We are a couple with two children 18-months and 3.5 years. We went to Hudson Valley for a couple of days of R&R and wanted to visit both Cold Spring and Beacon. This spot is located perfectly between the two with easy access to other picturesque towns, beaches, hikes, parks and more. The home is just as described - clean, spacious, comfortable with everything needed to enjoy your stay. We are happy to recommend this home.
