Our Story

While Josh and Susan had known each other through work for a few years, it was on January 3rd, 2022 when Josh first emailed Susan to grab coffee.  They met up first thing on the morning of the 5th at Grant (food court area at West Point).  Coffee lasted only 10 minutes as when they sat down, Josh admitted that the reason for coffee was that he wanted to ask her to dinner sometime to get to know each other.  Susan immediately accepted!  

Since then, they've been going to sporting events, traveling, eating delicious food, and most of all laughing together.  Susan has loved getting to know Josh's four girls - Genny, Leah, Abbey, and Madeline.  They are amazing!


Nine months and 1 day after their first date, Josh asked Susan to marry him.  She said yes - enthusiastically!


Where to Stay in Beacon

More to Come...

We'd love for people to stay in Beacon, but there are also other options in surrounding towns.  

In Beacon: 

Dutchess Inn & Spa: 15 Rooms opening up at the end of December/beginning of January

The Roundhouse

Beacon B&B


AirBnB towns we recommend: Beacon, Cold Spring, and Garrison


Chain Hotels: Fishkill, NY and near Stewart International Airport

How to Get to Beacon

If Renting a Car

LGA: 1.5 hrs
Newark: 1.5 hrs.

Stewart: 15-20 min.

Westchester: 1 hr.

JFK: 1.75-2 hrs.

The two closest NYC airports are about 1.5 hours from Beacon: LaGuardia (LGA) and Newark (EWR).  JFK is closer to 2 hours away.


New York Stewart International Airport (SWF in Newburgh) is about 20 minutes from Beacon. 

Westchester County Airport (HPN) is 1 hour from Beacon.

Both of these airports have fewer direct flights.  

If Taking Public Transportation

LGA: bus/train

LaGuardia is your best bet.  You can take a bus or an Uber to the Harlem train station and take a MetroNorth Train to Beacon.  I'd recommend an Uber from the Beacon train station to where you are staying, otherwise it's a pretty steep hill with luggage to get to town.  


If coming from NYC: Take the MetroNorth Train to Beacon.  

What to do in Beacon?

In 2018, Beacon was named "The Coolest Small Town in America" by Budget Travel!  Beacon continues to grow and offers great food, a cool art gallery, and a breath-taking (in more ways than one) hike.
