Very nice setting by a small waterfall and stream. Newish converted factory into small "boutique" hotel. Had oriental minimalist flavour to decor. Where it didn't work was availability of space for work or even cosmetics and towel hangers. Staff was not very engaged. Construction crew started drilling at 7am. Restaurant and bar had odd hours and closing times. Wifi was not functional. Way too expensive specially if your room does not face water (Beacon's scene is getting gentrified but is not what I call Idyllic).

The hotel itself was nice enough, but I felt that the staff was pretty lame. We were there for a Friday and Saturday night and had staffers let themselves into our room TWO times without knocking. What's up with that, Roundhouse? Two times? For $400 a night, when I put a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on my door, I'd better not be disturbed.

Staying at this Rockwood Group designed inn was a terrific addition to our Beacon visit, which included walking main street and visiting DIA Beacon. It complemented the aesthetic experience of visiting a revitalized, old, industrial town. Located in an old mill on a creek and connected to the central pedestrian business district, the rooms are industrial scale, with exposed beams & brick, raw stone, and chunky proportions. The furnishings are basic but stylish. For instance, the linens are from CB2 (not my favorite, but okay). Nothing is fancy, but it is all tasteful and comfortable, and the hotel was more attractive in real life than the photos I saw online. I felt at home there.

There are three buildings: 1) the main building, which houses the restaurant, lobby, and some hotel rooms and overlooks the creek falls, 2) the Mill building, which houses rooms on the first floor and is projected to house rooms on the upper floor (still under renovation), and 3) a building that was closed for renovation but allegedly is being renovated to host special events, such as weddings. The construction did not impact our stay in any way except seeing the machinery on site, but we were there on a snowy weekend, which may have halted work. Finding the lobby was a little challenging (entrance is on the main road), and the place could use better signage. Even our GPS took us to the wrong location for the address! Ultimately it was small enough that we found our way around. All of the rooms in the Mill building face either a driveway or a parking lot and have huge, cool windows. It feels a little exposed with the shades open, but this didn't bother us, as even though the hotel was at capacity, there were very few people coming and going. There was no room service, but the mini-fridge was stocked with healthy snacks.

In the evening, we enjoyed a delicious and romantic meal at "Swift" in the hotel, saw a performance at the Beacon Theater on Main St., then walked up the street to a very lively bar called "Dogwood", where we had a nightcap and made friends at the bar. Our visit was enhanced by a snow storm, which blanketed the town in beautiful, white powder as soon as we arrived, so don't shy away from winter visits. Regarding reservations, when I tried to make them (only days before our stay), the person I spoke to in reservations at the hotel said they required a minimum stay. However, I was able to book for a single night on a popular travel booking site. I think it was more expensive, but worth it for us to book for a single night. My only complaints are that 1) there was NO counter space in the bathroom and 2) there was a smoke detector directly over the bed that had the brightest, blinking red light I've ever tried to sleep through (I know I sound crazy, but it was super annoying). These are minor, so obviously, we had a great experience and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: The Mill building is remote and with ordinary views (parking lot & Victorian homes or the drivew...

We loved the location of the hotel and that it literally sits in a waterfall. With just 25 rooms it is a small boutique type hotel, minimalist furnishings (the bed is on a flat platform just 6" off the floor), it has a huge shower in a tiny bathroom with no place to set cosmetics. It is an expensive hotel and if you don't watch which room you are getting, you could pay $350+ to look into a dumpster or $420 to have a bar (and all of the noise of moving chairs and people) directly over your head. No in-room coffee but if you ask they will bring it to you (this is great, but you are not told about this feature unless you ask where you can go to get an early am coffee).

Room Tip: Ask for the 3rd level (bar and restaurant are on the 2nd), facing the water.

We had a one-night stay last weekend at the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls for a special occasion. We booked the penthouse suite overlooking the falls ($399) and dinner at the hotel's restaurant, Swift.

We had a really great stay! This is a small boutique hotel, so service is friendly and intimate. After arrival, the hotel staff brought a cheeseplate and bottle of champagne to the room in honor of our celebration. That was a nice and appreciated touch.

The penthouse is large and interesting. C-shaped with a living room, bar area, bedroom and large bathroom that echo the hotel's industrial past with metal and concrete accents. There's a soaking tub near the foot of the bed where you can take advantage of the great views over the falls. The penthouse also has a very large wrap around patio also overlooking the falls. Too bad it was too frigid to enjoy it! The only complaint was regarding the curtains of the floor to ceiling windows that are sheer and let in tons of light. That's great when you want to enjoy the day, but if you want to sleep past dawn it's not practical. There should be the option of a blackout curtain to close overnight.

Dinner at Swift was very good-- and service was flawless. The menu was small but had enough variety; I believe the options are all locally sourced. Nice wine list as well. Again, we had a table with a beautiful view.

The staff brought us continental breakfast on the morning of our stay which was only so-so. One of the yogurts they brought up (Chobani) was expired by over a week which should have been checked.

They will eventually have a spa on site, but for now the hotel staff can arrange a massage either in your room or in an empty room. The masseuse on call is truly amazing. She was very skilled and professional. I would definitely book another treatment with her in the future.

Overall our one night getaway was really good, with a few relatively minor issues that didn't impact the enjoyment of our stay. I would definitely come again-- next time in the summer when the outdoor spaces of the hotel can be fully enjoyed.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the falls and bring an eye mask

We needed a place to stay near to our sons boarding school. Roundhouse fit the bill. We had a nice, comfortable room with a spectacular view of the waterfall. Service was very accommodating and friendly. I can't wait yo see how this place continues to develop.

Stayed recently for an overnight getaway from NYC with my husband. Interesting concept and nicely done rooms - high ceilings, wide windows, and comfortable bed. Also, very attentive and accommodating staff. However, the room felt basic- there wasn't a place to put your toiletries in the bathroom, the shower water splashed all over the bathroom floor, and no armchair to relax and read. But what completely ruined our experience were the following two things: 1. The shower water temperature only did scalding, and I mean scalding, or cold! Nothing in-between. The worst showering experience ever! Especially since it was a frigid, frigid day. 2. The smoke detector was right above the bed and kept emitting it's green working flash light every ten seconds. I know this because we counted and videotaped it. Annoying to say the least. We stayed in The Mill building - nothing special. Would not visit again, especially because of what you get for the outrageous rate.
