My husband and I when for a "little" hike in the morning before we checked in to Mt. Beacon (almost 4.5 hours). We arrived to Mt. Beacon B&B sweaty, exhausted and burnt out. Barbara warmly greeted us and showed us around. This house is so charming!! Barbara showed us the pool and made us feel at home with towels waiting for us outside our door. She said the pool will do us some good and to come meet then on the viranda. The pool was just what we needed. When asked about recommending restaurants she did an outstanding job..whether you want casual or elegant, she knew where to send us. I also highly recommend Max's on Main and we did dessert/drinks at Roundhouse by the Falls. Back to the B&B, the bed and pillows were like sleeping on clouds. Did I mention the bear claw tub!!! Then in the morning we went to the grand dining room with orange juice, our own french coffee press (which I am now absolutely obsessed with) and these ricotta, blueberry and orange zest pancakes ready for us to enjoy. The ambiance of the house was grand but the two ladies really made us feel like we were at home here. We talked to Lauren before we left and asked about antique stores. She recommended Graymoor in Garrison...only 15 min. down the road. I got some AMAZING deals there (your really have to pick through things). All in all, my husband is in the military and I don't see him much so this 2 hour getaway from our Upstate home was absolutely amazing and we thank Barbara and Lauren for helping make this a memorable weekend.
