The SpacePLEASE NOTE: Guest fees are associated with bed capacity. If you use more beds than the number of guests you paid for, you will be charged an extra guest fee ($50 per night).

However, exception are possible if there are special needs, just let me know in advance :) The extra guest fee is to cover the cost of bedding, plus cleaning and making beds... Also note that I have a two night minimum.

We have lots of books, games and toys for everyone to enjoy! Other Things to NoteIMPORTANT: • I will consider single night reservations, but it must be for 12 guests. • Sorry, I no longer allow gatherings at my house larger than 13 guests. I've had bad experiences with events and parties :( • There is a $25 fee per night per pet.

Animals are not allowed on the furniture/beds or there will be an extra $50 cleaning fee.

The SpaceWelcome weary wonderful travelers to The Slumbering Bumble Bee, named after one of the delights found in my garden. There are other treasures to find as you cross the portal onto the land where my home resides. Come and enjoy my home and find a healing arts environment full of warmth, charm, and it's own magical quirkiness. I'm a eco, gluten, holistic conscious woman who loves the idea of being a reverse gypsy. Instead of hopping about, I travel as I meet wonderful people from all over. You might find you enjoy one of my herbal concoctions I make or the sound of the quiet nature filled night or the easy walk or bike ride to Beacon. Then there is always my very loving love loaf of a cat, Willow, who may beguile you. Beacon is only an hour and a half drive north of New York City, and an easy 80 minute ride on Metronorth's Hudson Line. Beacon is a fabulous little town with excellent shopping, museums (DIA Beacon), great restaurants and coffee shops, and even our own music venues! There is also incredible hiking in the area, including Mount Beacon & Breakneck Ridge. Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors (COSM) is 15 minutes as well. We are also only 30 minutes from Storm King Arts Center. It is quiet with lovely geese honking, birds chirping, crickets in the summer nights chirping. Walking distance from main street Beacon and now 2 bikes available onsite for rental for $10 per day or $15 for the whole weekend if you need. Guest AccessA wonderful bathroom with a jet bath tub and a lovely shower with 2 shower heads, 1 rain shower. Some kitchen use available with the possibility of trying some of my specialty herbal tea concoctions. A cozy wood stove warmed living room with a beautiful view of Mt. Beacon. A large tree filled yard with places to sit and picnic, hammock. Easy parking. The petting of my cats if it comes to that. :) Interaction with GuestsI'm quite busy and have a private practice as well. I love to interact with my guests as I'm available and as they wish. It is important to me to have good vibes in my home, please come with your good vibes on high. :) The NeighborhoodMy home is a bit set apart from town. So for those looking for quiet but the excitement of town still quite close, this is the perfect spot. It is also a place to soak up healing vibes. The trees surrounding the oasis create a lovely set apart feeling. My herbal teas are extraordinary. Getting AroundStreet parking is easy. Metro North is 1.5 miles away. Some walk/bike ride/or cab it. Other Things to NoteMy home is a work in progress. I bought it 2 years ago, lots of foundational renovations have been done and now the inner workings are slowly being renovated. There are quirks about the house due to this but it is funky, warm, full of healing energy and it's getting better and better all the time. I'm also an herbalist and have herbs and herbal concoctions everywhere.

The SpaceWalk to Beacon's funky, fun Main Street! This tidy bungalow has easy access to the shops and galleries along with local outdoors attractions, including the Mount Beacon trail, Breakneck Ridge, Denning Point, Fishkill Ridge, and hiking destinations in Ulster, Orange and Dutchess Counties. Guest AccessPrivate bedroom, shared bathroom and living room. Kitchen access for serving purchased or pre-prepared food or coffee/tea. Any food not explicitly offered is off-limits. Friendly dogs are welcome to stay in the fenced-in backyard. Owners who do not clean up after their dog will forfeit their security deposit. Guests wishing to use the firepit on the patio must ask for assistance. Since this keeps coming up: no, there really is no room for a third guest. Interaction with GuestsI have hiked most of the local trails and can help point you toward good routes based on your qualifications. I also (road) bike quite a lot and can help you select safe routes locally and in Orange and Ulster Counties. If requested and logistically feasible, I will collect your emergency contact information and let them know if you are late coming in from your hike or ride. I currently work from home and spend most of my day working in my office or the town library so I generally stay isolated during the day. The NeighborhoodBeacon's historic Main street is lined with unique art galleries, antique shops, and unusual restaurants and food purveyors. With DIA:Beacon at one end and a restored 19th century mill waterfall at the other, exploring this revived factory town is an adventure on its own. Further afield, local attractions like the Walkway over the Hudson, historic sites in Newburgh and Hyde Park, and public and private wilderness areas ensure there is something for everyone. Getting AroundThe Metro-North train station is a mile from the house. Everything in Beacon itself is within walking distance. Off-street parking and secured covered bike storage is available. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE STREET. Please use the off-street parking provided on the east/mountain side of the house. Other Things to NoteThe cat in the photos has since moved on to the Great Scratching Post in the Sky. The new cat is a bit skittish with strangers, and will in all likelihood avoid you. I keep her away from the guest bedding, and she isn't allowed in the room once it's set up. When it's just the two of us, she has the run of the place. Please note there is no television.

The SpaceWe love our house and we live in it full time. When you rent it, we go to another spot nearby to stay. This space is like the original types of Air B and B's when the service first started: we have lots of personal stuff and have a "our home is your home" approach. Of course this means the place is not a 100% rental property and not full of tacky or cheap amenities. It also may feel a bit off to folks looking for a more "hotel-like" experience. Guest AccessKitchen, bathroom, bedroom, main room, sun room, garden, finished basement. off-street parking. Interaction with GuestsWe live here full time but stay elsewhere or go on vacation when you arrive. Any special needs please let us know in advance so we can make you as comfortable as possible. If you stay 2 week or longer we have a complimentary house cleaning service once a week. The NeighborhoodOur block is quiet and nothing particularly special. But we are a short walk from the middle/post office section of Main Street (Main Street itself is a mile long). We also are a short walk to some very nice parks. It is a quiet neighborhood with very little noise at night. Please be respectful of our neighbors. Getting AroundMetronorth train. Close to Interstate 84, 87, and Taconic Parkway. 10-20 minute walk to most amenities in town. Winter can be tough for pedestrians if there is snow and the sidewalks are not shoveled. Other Things to NoteWe have a shared driveway. There is enough room for three cars, but they must be kept on the right (north) side of the drive so the neighbor is not blocked.

The owner was informative, easy to talk to, receptive and welcoming! The place was very comfortable I am fussy about sheets, pillows and beds and all were outstanding. The sheets were at least 550 thread count, pillows high quality down and the beds were all comfortable; firm but not too hard. I loved the decorative touches like staying in a boutique hotel. My 8 year old daughter was enthralled with the Safari room, as were we all. There were beautiful pictures of elephants and Africa. The town of Beacon is a great up and coming place. The rental is a block from the sweet downtown mainstreet which has some cool restaurants, a great coffee shop and some neat galleries. We took the train into New York City which was quick and easy. Definitely a great way to go as the rental is so much cheaper than the city and such a welcome comfort from the city craziness. The house must be wonderful in the summer with the sweet front porch and cute garden! I will definitely return! Appreciative Tourists from York, Maine Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 IDEAL LOCATION, GREAT OWNER, WONDERFUL TOWN TO VISIT Rating: ***** (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Hannah Kim Long Island, NY Review Submitted Octob(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Date of Stay October 7, 2011 I was looking for a house to rent for a 3-night stay maximum over the weekend in a town along the Metro North and always wanted to check Beacon out. This house is a dream come true: It is large enough to accommodate a small group of 7 maximum, not far from the train station and so close to downtown, the Dia Museum, and wonderful hiking areas (that give a gorgeous view of the Hudson River, town, and surrounding mountains), has a full kitchen that is well stocked with cooking utensils and all you need, and there are plenty of extra pillows, linens, and towels for everyone. Due to how short our stay was, we were unable to enjoy the back (which has a grill!) and front decks but hope to do so at a future time as they looked so wonderful. In concurrence with previous reviewers, Carole was extremely quick to respond to my query and reservation and extremely warm and helpful in every way. She gave recommendations of what to do and where to go for what in Beacon. This town was larger than I anticipated and it leaves you wanting to come back for more (which I will certainly try to do!) COMFORT AND LOCATION Rating: ***** (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Paula Potts Arlington, VA Review Submitted September 8, 2011 Date of Stay August 29, 2011 Arriving just after hurricane Irene had blown through, we were delighted to find our holiday home waiting for us in great order. We had been looking for a location that would allow us to walk to restaurants and local sites as well as provide easy access to hiking and biking – and Carole’s house in Beacon proved to be a perfect home base. The house had a unique and charming feel that was also wonderfully comfortable. There’s an excellent selection of music and books and a well-stocked drawer of information about sights in the region (there’s no lack of things to do in the area). From a guest viewpoint, one of the best aspects of the rental was how responsive and helpful Carole was. When we first arrived, we had several questions; Carole was available and responded quickly. During our time in Beacon, we enjoyed several local hikes and some great bike rides a bit to the north (we drove our bikes to connect with trail heads--maps and info are in the drawer). The local DIA is remarkable and evenings down on the river were lovely. Our favorite coffee was from Bank Square and we loved small plate dinners at Home Spun. There's also a great natural foods store with surprisingly good take out. We had a great week in Beacon and recommend the area and Carole’s home without hesitation. Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Respond to Review Recommended for: Age 55+ , Adventure Seekers , Tourists without a Car , Sightseeing Helpful votes:0/0. YOU WILL WANT TO COME BACK! Rating: ***** (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Trish McGrath Review Submitted August 29, 2011 Date of Stay August 20, 2011 As soon as you enter Carole’s house, you are home. Wonderful books everywhere. “Hotels In Africa” comes to mind, and the poignant poems of Mary Oliver. In late August, if you’re out on the porch fantasizing about owning your own little cottage in Beacon, you’ll hear the cicadas singing Pete Seeger songs. Beacon’s Main Street is a stone’s throw stroll away. We ate at BJ’s twice. Once for the ribs and once late at night for the lemon cake. Lorraine, at Lorraine’s Place” has wonderful old stuff for cheap, and she’s got wisdom to impart. She told us, “Never drop in on your kid at college un-announced.” It’s not just that there’s nothing to complain about at Carole’s, it’s the kind of place that when you leave you call Carole up and you are really, really nice to her because you want to make sure she will have you back.

When we arrived a neighbor had turned on a lamp and porch lights so the house felt welcoming even as we got out of the cab (it's a $6 ride from the Metro North station). The house is decorated in a way that's both artistic and personal--the opposite of a sterile or cold hotel. In addition to having every kitchen accoutrement you could want for cooking, Carole has books, games, CDs, and DVDs. Beacon is quiet and charming. We spent most of one afternoon at DIA and some time walking around Main Street, where we especially enjoyed the restaurant Home Spun. The entire experience is highly, highly recommended, especially for New Yorkers looking for a little respite from the city! Recommended for: Age 55+ , Girls Getaway , Tourists without a Car , Families with Teenagers , Families with Young Children , Romantic Getaway *****NICE COZY PLACE Rating: 5 out of 5 Kirstie Wilde PACIFIC GROVE Review Submitted Date of Stay Novemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) My daughter and I wanted to escape Manhattan for a week-end in the country, and Carole's home in Beacon filled the bill. It was clean and cozy and just a short walk to the shops and restaurants in town. Carole went above and beyond when I asked her if there were any vegan restaurants in town. She called restaurants and inquired for us before we arrived... and had several suggestions of where we should go. She also recommended a rental car company, and offered to have a taxi waiting for us at the train station in Beacon when we arrived late at night. What a wonderful hostess! Recommended for: Age 55+ , Tourists without a Car , Sightseeing , Romantic Getaway. *****FELT AT HOME Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Paul Enck Tuebingen, Germany Review Submitted Date of Stay August 18, 2010 it´s like a friend has invited you to stay in his/her private home while he/she´s away - the house is filled with collectibles from travel, art work and "private" things you would not easily share with strangers, but you would wish to be surrounded with at home - that made our stay here very special, and we could have enjoyed it much longer - we will certainly return. Recommended for: Romantic Getaway *****COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! OUR WEDDING WEEK Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Eddie Geisinger NY, NY Review Submitted Date of Stay June 3, 2010 We rented Carol’s home in Beacon for the week surrounding our wedding, which was held in the area. We could not be happier with our choice! The house is perfectly located, within a few blocks to downtown Beacon, where delightful restaurants and cafes are located. Although we explored the neighborhood on foot and in our rental car, one would certainly not need a car for this spot. The house itself is just lovely, tidy, organized, and very homey in feel. We absolutely loved our down-time on the front porch and the backyard (where we practiced our first dance). Finally, the proprietor was very, very kind and helpful; she made sure that everything was in order for our arrival and handled our stay with a calm professionalism that we really appreciated, especially in light of the wedding chaos surrounding us. We highly recommend this house to anyone visiting Beacon or the Hudson River Valley! Recommended for: Age 55+ , Pet-friendly , Adventure Seekers , Girls Getaway , Tourists without a Car , Sightseeing , Families with Teenagers , Families with Young Children , People with Disabilities , Romantic Getaway *****WE MADE THE SMART DECISION Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Rob Sydney Australia - Date of Stay Novemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) We made the very smart decision to rent the house in Beacon for our stay in the Hudson Valley. For ten days--October 19th--29th--we used this amazing property as our base-of-operations to explore not only the Lower Hudson Valley but to visit various locations in Northern New Jersey and New York City as well. We could not have been more pleased! The house itself is a sanctuary that is comfortable, interesting and so relaxing, that day trips to this or that scenic wonder seemed an intrusion at times. The owner has taken to the time to put her personal stamp on the place, with thoughtfully displayed items from her extensive travels, a brilliant collection of books and CD's and a welcoming feel that does exactly that for any traveller coming through the door. In fact, the owner's 'Welcome Home!' fact sheet begins the process straightaway. The house is fully equipt with a real kitchen, dining room, amazing heating system, abundant storage space and on-site laundry facilities. Comfort abounds with beautiful linens, duvets and pillows in the bedrooms and welcoming, 'at-home' furniture in the lounge room. Plus, its WIFI capabilities makes for a 'laptop friendly' environment. However, the most amazing thing for us was the location: An old Hudson River 'river town' that has been revived, restored and renewed into something that is quite amazing. Beacon is a mix of cultures, lifestyles and the opportunity to experience town life in the Lower Hudson Valley, but with access to all that the larger area has to offer. Within in hour and a bit, by means of a very scenic commuter rail trip along the Hudson River, you're in Midtown Manhattan. A short ride away, and you're at the gates of West Point or surrounded by some of the best outdoor recreation sites available. And a short distance from the house is DIA--a truly unique, cutting edge arts venue. And then there's the magic of Boscobel, Garrison Landing, Cold Spring and the Plumbush Inn. It's all there for you: If only you, too, make the wise decision to give the House at Beacon a go. You'll be very glad that you did! Rob & Simon Trinity Beach, Qld. Australia *****A DELIGHTFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME FOR A GETAWAY WEEKEND Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Alix Kivlin Brooklyn Review Submitted Date of Stay Octob(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) I cannot even tell you what a wonderful time in Beacon we had! 6 of us from Brooklyn went to Beacon as a surprise birthday weekend away for my boyfriend and we couldn't have had a more relaxing and inspiring time. The house is just perfect - well maintained, comfortable, great outside space, we cooked delicious meals, had an ongoing and rather epic game of Monopoly that lasted 2 days, and the location to everything was extremely convenient. I am already looking forward to a repeat weekend; we really fell in love with Beacon and I feel like we only touched upon a fraction of what the area has to offer! Next time will have to be a long weekend and I will definitely be renting this home again.

Rating: (URL HIDDEN)out of 5 Jon Brazier - Review Submitted Date of Stay October 8, 2009 Carole’s home in Beacon was the perfect place for my family’s recent stay while visiting the Hudson Valley. From the moment we crossed the threshold we felt completely at home, as if we already knew the house and belonged there. The furnishings and décor, much of which no doubt was collected by Carol on her travels around the globe, only add to the home’s comfort and coziness. And, to round things out, her graciousness as a hostess is unmatched, lending to making our stay in the Hudson Valley a most special experience. The house’s location affords not only quick access to many of the best sites in the Hudson Valley, but ease of access to the many shops and boutiques in the Village of Beacon.We'll be back! From Jon and daughters Heide and Hannah Interaction with GuestsI have a separate loft upstairs which is sound proofed because on a rare occasion I need to be there. I don't hear anything from downstairs and have a separate entrance. You still have your privacy. The NeighborhoodEasy walking to everywhere!!

      PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT RENT FOR FOR 1 NIGHT. THERE IS A 2 NIGHT MINIMUM. Continue reading further down in this box for 5***** Reviews. Here's a sample: "More like a boutique hotel." "This house is a dream come true." "Great owner, great location!" This home in beautiful Hudson Valley is a lovingly restored 1930's bungalow in the up and coming community of Beacon, which sits on the Hudson River. The interior has been redone with warm colors and, as it's on a corner lot, you will find the sun streaming in through the many windows on all sides. There are comfortable, collectable and unique furnishings throughout. The master bedroom is particularly soothing with its soft colors and original works of art…plus a super, luxury mattress on the queen size bed. The bedroom/office has been decorated with earthen tones, pictures and pieces brought back from my travels in Africa. It’s also suitable for children, with a friendly stuffed toy leopard, with elephant and giraffe toys to keep him company. The high-end sofa bed in the living room also assures a good nights sleep. You'll find everything you need to experience a tranquil and comfortable stay in the house, including a collection of books, board games and puzzles. Bring your work with you...there's Internet access throughout. In the spring the garden is full of tulips, daffodils, hydrangeas, lilacs...and a glorious cherry tree, which you can appreciate from a seat on the front porch. In the summer you'll want to barbeque in the back yard after a day of exploring the historic sites up and down the Hudson Valley. But a car is not necessary... it's an 70 minute ride on a Metro North express train straight up the Hudson River from NYC with stunning views the whole way. If you do drive, there’s plenty of street parking right outside the door. REVIEWS: A lovely home. We even did a bit of remodeling when we got back and I used Carole’s master bedroom for inspiration. It was so relaxing! Appreciative Tourist We loved it! The owner was informative, easy to talk to, receptive and welcoming! The sheets were at least 550 thread count, pillows high quality down and the beds were all comfortable; firm but not too hard. I loved the decorative touches… it’s like staying in a boutique hotel. My 8-year-old daughter was enthralled with the Safari room, as were we all. There were beautiful pictures of elephants and Africa. The town of Beacon is a great up and coming place. The rental is a block from the sweet downtown main street. We also took the train into NYC, which was quick & easy. Definitely a great way to go as the rental is so much cheaper than city prices and such a welcome comfort from the city craziness. I will definitely return! Ideal location, wonderful owner, great town to visit!!! This house is a dream come true: It has a full kitchen that is well stocked with cooking utensils and all you need, plenty of extra pillows, linens, and towels for everyone. Due to how short our stay was, we were unable to enjoy the back (which has a grill!) and front decks but hope to do so at a future time, as they looked so wonderful. Carole was extremely quick to respond to my query and reservation as well as warm and helpful in every way. She gave us great recommendations. This town was larger than I anticipated…it leaves you wanting to come back for more (which I will certainly do!) Comfort AND Location We had been looking for a location that would allow us to walk to everything. Carole’s house was a perfect home base. It has a unique and charming. There’s an excellent selection of music and books and a well-stocked drawer of information about sights in the region (there’s no lack of things to do in the area). From a guest viewpoint, one of the best aspects of the rental was how responsive and helpful Carole was, available to answer any question. We enjoyed great bike rides to the north (we drove our bikes to connect with trail heads--maps and info are in the drawer). THERE IS A TWO NIGHT MINIMUM RENTAL. I MAKE NO EXCEPTIONS...THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING. THE RATES LISTED ABOVE ARE LOW SEASON, MID AND PEAK RATES WHICH VARY DEPENDING ON THE SEASON AND LENGTH OF STAY. THEY ARE HIGHER IN THE SPRING AND PEAK SUMMER, FALL FOLIAGE SEASONS AS WELL AS OVER HOLIDAY WEEKENDS. WEEKENDS ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THEN WEEK NIGHTS. The house is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood only 3 blocks from Main St and it's galleries, cafes and variety of great restaurants, Beacon Theater, antique stores and shops. A 20 minute walk can get you to DIA museum, and the Hudson River front, where you can laze on or swim off of Long Dock, walk, kayak or bike…even sail on Pete Seeger's boat The Woody Guthrie. A 20-minute walk in the other direction will take you to the base of Mount Beacon and the many hiking trails on the 6000 acres of The Hudson Highlands State Park. The New York Times said about Beacon: "IF you were an investor wagering on any Hudson Valley town or city, it might be Beacon, with a world-class attraction in Dia: Beacon (Art museum), its walk-able downtown, and an emerging art scene a 80-minute train ride from Grand Central Terminal.” "The view of the lower Hudson Valley from the top of Mount Beacon on a cloudless day is panoramic and humbling. Visitors can take in the Hudson River’s flat, wide surface (in summer and fall, it’s often dotted with sailboats), identify and point to the city’s Main Street, lined with it’s stoic red brick buildings." Don't miss Storm King art center across the river in Harriman or the Russell Wright house in Garrison. You'll find information on these and the many other interesting places mentioned below in the dining room cupboard. The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival is held during July and August on the expansive gardens of one of the most magnificent, beautifully restored period homes in the United States...Boscobel, with it's pristine views across the river and down the valley. It’s just south of Beacon in the charming village of Cold Spring, which is well worth a visit. The sweet Garrison Theatre in the old train station on Garrison Landing also offers plays, musicals, and concerts throughout the year. In Beacon during the spring, fall and summer months there are various outdoor festivals, as well as a farmers market on the waterfront on Sundays. 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 wandering Main Street. Don't forget to stop at Hudson Beach Glass in the old firehouse for a glass blowing demonstration... or sign up for lessons and do it yourself! Speaking of food... Beacon has many fine places to satisfy your hunger. You'll find all that information at the house. Or why not dine in one of the restaurants across the Hudson on the rivers edge in Newburgh? You can take the ferry across and explore the mansions and historic sites of Newburgh where George Washington was based during the Revolutionary War. Beacon also has it's own historic sites, including the Madame Brett Homestead built in 1709. Head up river to the Walkway across the Hudson in Poughkeepsie. From there continue north to visit Roosevelt's Home and Library or the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, and stop at the renowned Culinary Institute Of America for a DELICIOUS meal on the way. Book ahead for anything other then the Tea Shop (which you shouldn't pass by without tasting their of mouth watering dishes). Continue up to Rhinebeck where you can attend events at Omega Institute or visit the Dutchess County Fairgrounds which host the famous Dutchess County Fair, the annual Sheep and Wool Fest, as well as Rhinebeck Antiques Fair. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the spectacular hiking, biking, kayaking and sailing in the region. Bike and Kayak rentals are available in town. You may also swim in the Hudson River at Stony Point in Coldspring. There's a children's floating pool at the Beacon dock... go ahead and swim off the Long Dock in Long Dock Park, or walk the trail along the river bed... catch the stunning views at sunset. There are several beautiful golf courses with in a 30 minute drive. Ask me for details.

        The SpaceWe've recently remodeled the house which once housed an old dentist's office, and the room for rent is the old waiting room! The wood paneled walls and antique fixtures and furniture give your get-away that country/Twin Peaks/hunting lodge flair. The room has a private W/C (toilet & sink) for privacy. Guest AccessAmenities include fully functioning kitchen, anteroom with free tea and coffee, living room and shared bathroom with shower and bathtub. Access to a screened porch and eclectic garden with fire pit right outside the back door! Interaction with GuestsWe love meeting our guests and love to share stories about their travels but also respect their privacy. We are a couple with a young boy and live on the second floor of the house. We use the shared kitchen and living room daily but encourage our guests to make themselves feel at home in the house. The NeighborhoodWe are one block away from Main street Beacon with the lovely cafes, galleries and bars. Beacon is rich in dining options, all in walking distance from the house. The foothills are a short drive away with great hiking trails, and the Fishkill creek waterfall is just down the hill. And of course DIA Beacon is a must visit with its fabulous permanent collection. Getting AroundWe are 90 minutes away from Grand Central Manhattan on the Metro North line which leaves almost every hour. From there, we are about a twenty minute walk from the train station, or there is a shuttle bus that goes up Main Street, and there are also taxis available from the station - about $8 for a ride to our place. The house also has plenty of parking for guests with cars. Other Things to NoteWe have two rooms available for Airbnb guests at B-House. The Timber Room (this listing) and The Grand Room.
