Came to Beacon and Chrystie House on the Metro North from Grand Central for a week long getaway on February 13. Could not have been more pleased with the host, the breakfasts and this historic house. Yes, my wife and I took this visit during some brutal weather conditions, but the hosts made sure that we were taken care of. I am not sure of the the prior poster's issues, but we found the host to be totally accommodating. ... and yes, there was a space heater in our room which we never needed. The bedroom was spacious, but yet cozy and was warmly decorated. The large ensuite bathroom had a rainhead shower. The bed was great with numerous pillows, comforters/blankets. Look for the deer resting or eating from one of your large windows.
Breakfasts were served in the large dining room with large windows. My wife loved the quiche and I was impressed with the huge scones, croissants, fruits with coffee and juice. Make sure to ask the host about the original art on the wall after you eat. They have 'world-wide' connections to a much bigger story. Quite impressive.
Knowing that this house has a direct connection to one of the signers made the stay special. Again, the owner is very knowledgeable of the history surrounding the house and it's connection to the area and the founding fathers.
If you are looking for new, go elsewhere ... looking for authentic, cozy and total getaway... come here. Would return in a heartbeat.
