The hidden kitchenette hosts a Keurig coffee maker with condiments, electric tea kettle with assorted teas, a microwave and a large fridge with plenty of extra ice. Insurance forbids cooking in room but our location is near a wide selection of restaurants and home food delivery businesses.

Julia quietly delivers a freshly prepared basket with fresh jumbo muffins at your door. Once you leave for the day your room is freshened, used towels removed and beds turned down for your return.

Weather permitting, enjoy your morning coffee on the east facing balcony or cook s'mores in your outdoor firepit.

Experience an artist's retreat beginning you day at Storm King Art Center, overnight at The Loft, breakfast and then head back to Beacon for the train home, but not before visiting the DIA center or the many shop and bistros on Beacon's Main Street.

About Julia McGuire

I am a writer at heart and mostly work from home, so having my own hospitality business is right up my alley. I greet you at the door and I'm at your disposal throughout your stay.

Julia McGuire purchased this Studio in 1977

Why Julia McGuire chose Town of Cornwall

The Hudson Valley is one of the most beautiful settings in our country. All seasons are equally amazing and never cease to surprise us even after 40+ years. Our house lends itself beautifully to the Hudson Valley traveler and small family. As secluded as we are, we are less than half a mile from the main road, and from there, a mile from a busy intersection with everything you need for your stay here from restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, liquor stores, take out restaurants that deliver, post office and banks and our West Point guests love that we are just 15 minutes from the main gate. When we first started looking for a home we wanted the kind of small neighborhood like the town I grew up in. All these years later and we still love it here. We are ten minutes from Stewart International Airport and five minutes from The Storm King Art Center which features artists and sculptors from around the world. We also have some of the most awesome hiking trails on Storm King Mountain, about a five minute drive from us. Nighttime is pretty quiet here. Actually, that's one of the features that works out best for our guests. Guests love the privacy. I'm just a phone call away for anything you need.

What makes this Studio unique

We have distant mountain views that are best seen from The Loft through the east facing glass doors - a great thing to wake up to each morning. Our home has evolved from a tiny bungalow to a unique arrangement of rooms as our family grew. We designed The Loft for privacy and it has well served us. The comment all our guests make when they leave is, 'feels like home.' It doesn't get better than that. Don't wait another weekend before deciding that you need a break now and enjoy the privacy, seclusion and relaxation you deserve.

Julia was the perfect hostess, letting us know ahead of time of possible road condition problems because of a huge snowstorm and offering to refund a night if we were stuck in the city. Luckily, the roads were clear by the afternoon and she was there to greet us(with cookies!) when we arrived.

                                                                  The Loft had everything we needed for the weekend and was very clean and comfortable. It was nice to have so much room to stretch out and I definitely took advantage of the Jacuzzi tub. There were plenty of towels and blankets for our use and personal hygiene products were available if we had forgotten anything.

                                                                  Julia came in daily after we left to pick up used towels and to leave us delicious cookies which was really a nice touch. And lastly, but certainly not least, were the AMAZING muffins! What a great treat to wake up in the morning and have fresh, hot muffins outside the door! We would definitely stay here again if only for those muffins!

                                                                  Molly M.Pennsylvania

                                                                  We used the loft apartment as a retreat after venturing out for day-long exploring trips of the Hudson River Valley. The apartment is very comfortable, cozy and private. We highly recommend Storm King, only a five minute drive from the apartment. We also enjoyed excellent Indian/Thai cuisine at Citrus, also nearby.

                                                                  Wonderful stay at a charming loft

                                                                  Jennifer F.

                                                                  Clean and comfortable. . . very comfortable.

                                                                  The Loft is just 5 minutes from Storm King Arts Center, 15 from West Point. There is no time like Autumn in the Hudson Valley. We are minutes away from some of the Mid-Hudson's most popular hiking trails like Storm King Mountain and access to the Adirondack Trail. There is so much to do here in the Hudson Valley, or take some time to chill out in the beautiful Loft, enjoy a glass of wine while you soak in your oversized heated Jacuzzi, relax by your own fire-pit with smores, order take-out and do nothing at all.
