Relax in the spacious, quiet private loft with queen bed, klick-klac sofa sleeper, extra comfy cot, cozy balcony with mountain views, huge bathroom with heated Jacuzzi bathtub and wake up the next morning to a basket of mouth-watering home baked breakfast muffins.
West Point parents love the The Loft's convenient location with easy highway access to and from the campus - only a 14 minute drive on the scenic Storm King Mtn. highway.
Experience an artist's retreat beginning you day at Storm King Art Center, overnight at The Loft, breakfast and then head back to Beacon for the train home, but not before visiting the DIA center or the many shop and bistros on Beacon's Main Street.
Transportation to and from the train can be arranged.
No matter what your plans are-
- The Loft offers a perfect romantic getaway only 90 minutes from Manhattan
- Make it an adventure and hike Storm King Mountain's many trails or kayak the Hudson.
- West Point ceremonies, football games.
- An artist weekend at DIA Beacon and Storm King Arts Center

I am a writer at heart and mostly work from home, so having my own hospitality business is right up my alley. I greet you at the door and I'm at your disposal throughout your stay.

The Hudson Valley is one of the most beautiful settings in our country. All seasons are equally amazing and never cease to surprise us even after 40+ years. Our house lends itself beautifully to the Hudson Valley traveler and small family. As secluded as we are, we are less than half a mile from the main road, and from there, a mile from a busy intersection with everything you need for your stay here from restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, liquor stores, take out restaurants that deliver, post office and banks and our West Point guests love that we are just 15 minutes from the main gate.
When we first started looking for a home we wanted the kind of small neighborhood like the town I grew up in. All these years later and we still love it here.
We are ten minutes from Stewart International Airport and five minutes from The Storm King Art Center which features artists and sculptors from around the world. We also have some of the most awesome hiking trails on Storm King Mountain, about a five minute drive from us.
Nighttime is pretty quiet here. Actually, that's one of the features that works out best for our guests. Guests love the privacy. I'm just a phone call away for anything you need.
We have distant mountain views that are best seen from The Loft through the east facing glass doors - a great thing to wake up to each morning. Our home has evolved from a tiny bungalow to a unique arrangement of rooms as our family grew. We designed The Loft for privacy and it has well served us. The comment all our guests make when they leave is, 'feels like home.' It doesn't get better than that. Don't wait another weekend before deciding that you need a break now and enjoy the privacy, seclusion and relaxation you deserve.
Marie, you were the perfect guest. Right after we said hello you told me that your oil light came on in the car a few miles back. We solved that problem and then the time just flew. I remember the knot I got in my stomach when you said that your family owned a restaurant. Yikes!!! But I made my house specialties for breakfast and you gave the Marie seal of approval. Marie, you are always welcome back to The Loft!
Julia is a gracious host and has made a place in her home perfect for a private getaway. You are greeted with place that has amenities to make you feel at home. The bathroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable. She cooks up a wonderful breakfast to start your day with coffee from a Kuerig coffee maker. We are definitely coming back all people will enjoy Julia's hospitality.
The Loft was a perfect location for me and my bridesmaids to sleep the night before my wedding in New Windsor. Julia was truly hospitable and lovely to keep in contact with. She provided everything we needed and More! When we arrived she even prepared fresh baked cookies for us! All the girls in my party were amazed and we really enjoyed our stay. Next time we need a place to stay we will be booking the Loft!
Wer sich im Urlaub fast wie zuhause fühlen will, der kommt hierher. TV, WLan, Balkon, Ruhe, Sicherheit. Und wenn man will, auch ein bisschen Familienanschluss. Sehr nette Leute. Absolut verlässlich. Wir haben uns geborgen und sicher gefühlt.
Gut für Ausflüge. 1,5 h bis zum JFK. Ein Auto ist unbedingt notwendig.
Jeden Tag 5 Sterne Frühstück und zwar so viel, dass man Abends noch davon essen könnte.
Julia was wonderful and the accommodations that she provided were perfect. My girlfriend and I came up from New York City to hike Storm King Mountain for a day hike and spent the night at Julia's place. From the moment we met her until we left she was kind and gracious. The apartment was clean, there was an amazing bathroom, and she baked for us! The next time I go back up to area I'm going to book this place. I hope you'll try it as well.
We were going to visit our son at West Point and had originally booked at the Thayer for Easter, but found that we would need extra room... I searched and found this jewel! Julia has done everything imaginable to make her guests feel comfortable and welcome. The accommodations are spacious and lovely... we slept three quite easily. I loved having a kitchen that was stocked with coffees, teas and condiments. Finding a delicious homemade "Welcome" treat on the table when we arrived was a wonderful surprise. Julia is an amazing chef, and her culinary talents were totally appreciated every morning when she presented us with a fabulous breakfast... we were full until dinner! We will definitely return to the Loft on our next visit!!
The Loft is just 10 minutes from West Point and just around the corner from the Storm King Arts Center. There is no time like Autumn in the Hudson Valley. We are minutes away from some of the Mid-Hudson's most popular hiking trails like Storm King Mountain and access to the Adirondack Trail. There is so much to do here in the Hudson Valley, or take some time to chill out in the beautiful Loft, enjoy a glass of wine while you soak in your oversized heated Jacuzzi, order take-out and do nothing at all.
