We also have an area called “the naturals”. This marvelous fresh stream waterfall is a 5 minute walk from our house and the base is at least 10ft deep making it an ideal area to take a dip; take a picture as you take it all in. Due to our location the only means of public transportation is by taxi. As a courtesy and if it’s convenient we could offer transportation from/to the Metro North stations Cold Spring and Beacon. Seek out a “little piece of heaven” and come and rest awhile in the beautiful Hudson Valley.

What our guests have said about our home.
Where to begin! From the delicious pancake breakfasts, the amazing art class in the barn/studio, the awesomely decorated and comfortable lodgings, and the serene swimming hole basically in the backyard, to the the two incredibly friendly, accommodating, and all-around lovely hosts, this place was an absolute dream. My girlfriend and I spent a long weekend at the Hermitage and were overwhelmed at how great the place was, and for such a reasonable price. The hosts went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect, and they had a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area and suggestions of activities, though to be honest we would have been happy never leaving the Hermitage, as there were plenty of hammocks and places to lounge both indoors and out. Jim and Adrian are simply the best hosts you could ask for. We couldn’t recommend them any more highly!
My partner and I had a wonderful stay with Jim and Adrian. They were absolutely the most gracious hosts, providing tea and dessert the night we arrived and a delicious, abundant breakfast the next morning. They even picked us up in downtown Beacon! Our room was clean, comfortable, and well decorated. Not to be overlooked is the fantastic outdoor space–gardens, hammocks, and plenty of places to wander through and explore on the grounds made their home the perfect Spring getaway. Adrian took us on a lovely walk through the neighboring woods to a waterfall. We really couldn’t have asked for a better stay, or for warmer, more gracious hosts. If you’re ever in Beacon, I would highly recommend staying with Jim and Adrian.
We had an amazing stay at Jim and Adrian’s home. They are truly hospitable and friendly, and we chatted on everything. We felt truly welcomed to their home, and theirs is a true home. Cosy, familiar, warm. Leon and Truffaut, the two cats are also amazing. Very friendly and beautiful. Seeing Leon on his emperor’s bed on top of the fridge was always reassuring.
The house is a beauty. They have tons of art, a big garden, a barn, hammocks, lawn… five minutes walking from the house there are natural waterfalls and two pristine ponds. If you keep walking up, two hours later you would be at the top of Mt. Beacon, with impressive views over the hilly woods and the Hudson.
The room is perfect, they have a nice bed, and also a vey nice bathroom with a big bath tub.
Probably the best was to enjoy the amazing breakfast and conversation with our hosts and their neighbors.
Thanks for having us.
