Wake up to sight & sound of a burbling creek in this immaculately clean full-floor apartment filled with midcentury design and modern tech. Steps to Main St, Roundhouse, and so much hiking. Perfect for a car-free escape. Easy access to Metro-North train, Dia, & quick walk to Mt Beacon hiking. Also near: Storm King, Breakneck Ridge, West Point.

The space
NOTE: OUR PROFESSIONAL CLEANER GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO ENSURE THE PLACE IS VIRUS-FREE. WE USE A PROFESSIONAL STEAM-CLEANING SERVICE BETWEEN ALL GUESTS, IN ADDITION TO VARIOUS DISINFECTANTS ON ALL SURFACES.

(Psst... Hey you, person thinking about booking: Please message me first to confirm, and also please read the entire listing as it likely answers any questions you may have.)

Steps to The Roundhouse and perfect for wedding guests and those without a car... 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.

This listing is for a full first-floor apartment with a private entrance and a separate HVAC/air circulation (though note that A/C is a window unit). The place comes complete with a super-comfy Casper bed, comfy sofa seating area, workspace with a large desk, a kitchenette and dining area, and a large bathroom with a bathtub.

See why Beacon as just named the #1 "Coolest Small Town" in America by Budget Travel magazine! This is a unique and immaculately clean home (seriously: read the reviews),

Seriously: This is the BEST POSSIBLE location in Beacon. It's steps to the action of Main Street's thriving East End (the creek and the Roundhouse are right there), yet feels like it is alone in nature, with Mount Beacon rising behind it and beautiful Fishkill Creek (a protected wetland nature reserve) burbling directly in front. Open your windows, and all you hear is the peaceful sound of running water (nature's white noise machine!). And the Beacon Falls waterfall is just seconds away

You are also a quick a 25-minute walk to the Beacon Metro North train station and a short walk to the Mount Beacon trailhead for hiking (as well as numerous other walkable trailheads). 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 at The Beacon Hotel, drink beer at the Hudson Valley Brewery, 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.

The listing includes:
-A plush mid-century-style bed with a super-comfy Casper mattress (some folks say it's the most comfortable they've ever slept on!)
-A spacious seating area with a sofa comfy enough to kick back on.
-A large desk/work area for pushing paper and getting work done.
-A functional kitchenette and dining area. The kitchenette includes an induction cooktop, microwave, mini-fridge, electric kettle, and basic dishes and utensils. (Great for a quick snack, but you won't want to cook a giant meal here).
-A movie projector for Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services. (NOTE: We are playing around with different setups between a TV and projector. One or both will be there, but actual setup may vary by dates. Feel free to ask if want more info for your stay)
-Unbeatable creek-front location, creating a quiet nature-filled oasis, just steps from the best spots on Main Street. Seriously, you won't find a better location in Beacon.
-Blazing fast Wi-Fi Internet.
-Touchpad smartlock for keyless entry and effortless check-in and coming-and-going.

What you may not like about the place:
-There's plenty of light when the shades are open, but if you close them it can get a bit dark and you may want to step outside for the sunshine.
-Since there is a unit above it, you may hear occasional (light) footsteps.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Do I need to bring towels or linens? What about a hairdryer or iron?
A: Nope! I provide all these things. Same with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

Q: How will I receive the key and how many keys will I get?
A: The house features a keyless entry system with a code that lasts as long as your stay. This allows for effortless check-in and entry.

Q: Is the place professionally cleaned between guests?
A: Yes, and I take pride in providing a clean home for guests. Take a look at my reviews—I think you'll find my guests agree!

Q: I am looking for a last-minute stay. Can I make a same-day booking?
A: If you're looking for a same-day booking and the place is free, please inquire and I'll try! It depends on whether my cleaning crew can spring into action at the last-minute, which isn't a sure thing. For same-day bookings, check-in may also have to be later than the listed time in order to make sure the place is ready. Still, can't hurt to ask!

Q: I know it says "No Animals". Can I bring my small/well-behaved dog?
A: I love dogs, but my short-term rental insurance expressly forbids them, and I have a family member with a severe dog allergy so sadly can not have them anywhere in the house at any time. I thank you for your understanding on this.

Q: What's my total booking price?
A: I honestly have no idea. With fees included, Airbnb only shows the guest, and not the host, the total cost. This figure should be present after you enter your dates. Note that, pricing varies on a daily basis, and Airbnb actually uses some crazy algorithm to adjust it automatically, so I don't actually control this.

ONE LAST THING: I really, really appreciate that you followed directions and read the whole thing. PLEASE PUT THE PHRASE: "Bonus points are fun!" AT THE TOP OF YOUR MESSAGE so I know you did so as such bookings tend to go so much smoother! And thanks for hanging in there!
