Glamp Small & Sassy in this Mount Beacon Cocoon for $51/night

Hikers: Planning a trip to the Hudson Valley? Put this 1966 Serro Scotty camper on your list, because it’s a five minute walk from Mount Beacon in Dutchess County. The mountain is the highest in the Hudson Highlands and features a short trail 2.4 miles up to the lookout and back, a 4.4 mile hike that goes to the overlook and the firetower, or a 7.7 mile hike that makes it a full day’s trek with lots of terrain and views galore.

Mount Beacon is just a few miles away from the Beacon Train Station, so a short ride there and back via Uber makes it possible for those who don’t want to or can’t drive to get a full day’s hike in the Hudson Valley. And, at the end of the day, come home to this cozy little trailer with room for singles/one couple. Grill out on the patio and watch the stars fill the sky in a quiet residential neighborhood walking distance from the city of Beacon. Hey, some people really like to walk.

What’s great about this trailer is that it’s affordable at $51/night with a one-night minimum stay. Campsites aren’t much cheaper, and you have to bring your own shelter. This one’s just waiting for you.
