My boyfriend and I were looking for an easy escape from NYC that would not require renting a car. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay at the Mt Beacon Bed and Breakfast. We opted for the master suite, and very much enjoyed the full sized antique bathtub and the fireplace in the room. The house is beautiful, bright, sunny, clean, and filled with antique furniture. The breakfast was a delicious 3 course meal, cooked and served by the friendly owners. I was not expecting to have such an elegant and substantial brunch. It was great!
My boyfriend and I love to walk, so the location was great for us. It is very close to Mt beacon. We hiked up to the top and enjoyed the beautiful view . We also were a short walk from Main street, where we discovered an incredible Retro Arcade Museum. We had never experienced anything like it. Fred, the owner, had an impressive collection of pre-video arcade games. He showed us how each game worked and let us play all the games for an hourly fee. It was incredible!!
We also walked to the Dia, which we really enjoyed. All in all, it was a perfect weekend. I would recommend Mt Beacon Bed and Breakfast as a great getaway for couples that don't mind walking a bit to get around town.
