Hello and welcome to the best place in Beacon! Wake up to the sounds of the burbling creek and the site of Mount Beacon rising in the distance of this bright, sunny, window-filled three-storey house, full of midcentury magic and modern design and technology. Four large bedrooms & four bathrooms. Steps to Main Street, The Roundhouse, Hudson Valley Brewery. Walk to train, Dia, Mount Beacon hiking. Also a short drive to Storm King Arts Center, West Point, Breakneck Ridge, and the Culinary Institute of America.
The Beacon Palace is perfect for car-less getaways (you are a quick a 25-minute walk to the Beacon Metro North train station), but also features a full private parking lot. For hiking, it is a short walk to the Mount Beacon trailhead. As for the wonderful spots along Main Street, you couldn't be closer: Stumble out your door for coffee and pie at Ella's Bellas, grab a delicious meal and beer at The Restaurant at the Beacon Hotel, eat ramen at Quinn's, see a live show at The Towne Crier, or walk out the door to attend a wedding, cocktail, or five-star meal at The Roundhouse.
The house was designed to merge the old and the new. Vintage mid-century pieces live next to the rustic, reclaimed, and modern. Classic design and modern technology allow for the best of both worlds. Each of the three bedrooms is lightly themed and decorated to provide a unique experience. Note that there may be longer min-stay requirements depending on the season and on some holidays.
The home includes:
-A giant living room complete with a full-wall movie projector for Netflix, Hulu, HBOGo, and cable via Sling TV.
-Full, modern kitchen outfitted for making whatever you like (yes, there's a dishwasher).
-Bedrooms galore: Four huge ones, including an en suite master and a huge full-floor suite with a separate entrance, bathroom, seating area, and kitchenette,
-All rooms are equipped with world-famous Casper mattresses, for supreme comfort (some guests tell me it's the most comfortable bed they've ever slept in).
-Bathrooms galore: Three giant full bathrooms as well as one spacious half bath. One of the full baths has two sinks, for easy sharing.
-Large dining area with a large custom-built live-edge wood dining table.
-There is a washer/dryer that may be used by guests staying at least four nights.
-Unbeatable creek-front location, creating a quiet nature-filled oasis, just steps from the best spots on Main Street.
-Sonos sound system for streaming music.
-Blazing fast Wi-Fi Internet.
-Touchpad smartlock for keyless entry.
Each of the four bedrooms is lightly themed and decorated to provide a different immersive experience.
-"The Maltese Falcon Room": In this classic film noir-inspired room, you are a hardboiled detective, ripped from the screen of Hitchcock or the pages of Chandler. See if you can find the hidden Easter Eggs while admiring the Maltese Falcon statue that famously drove men to madness.
-"The Mid-century Suite": A full-floor suite, decorated with the best of vintage mid-century (and a few modern) pieces. A projector provides entertainment to go along with a private seating area, kitchenette, and full bath. This room is beyond huge.
-"The Beacon Room": Modern furniture and historical photos and maps of Beacon mingle with classic mid-century wood pieces in the second largest room. A private en suite bathroom and gigantic walk-in closet provide a hotel-like experience with views of the burbling creek.
-"The Fantasy Room": Have a mad tea party in this whimsical bedroom, complete with toy cars and an unending sense of whimsy.
Outdoors: The living room opens up onto a large wooden deck, while a beach-like sloping yard rises above the parking area. Perfect for laying out and refreshing in the sun.
