Our flagship hive opened in May 2009 right in the heart of Beacon’s Main St in the artisan-renovated, iconic 1907 Telephone Building.
As pioneers in the coworking movement we’ve leveraged our years of experience to create a warm, comfortable, inviting, productive place to work, meet, collaborate and socialize.
Our main coworking space is a wide-open, first-floor loft with exposed brick walls, maple floor, soaring ceiling, and nine large windows facing south, east and west. There’s a mix of communal desks and tables, and lounge areas with a sofa and armchairs. It also functions as an event and meeting space. An adjoining “resident room” with dedicated desks is light and airy with white plaster walls, the same maple floor and soaring ceiling, and with large windows overlooking Main Street.
When the sun is shining it floods the space with natural light (which, studies show — surprise! — improves productivity, sleep and vitality). And all that light feeds a whole bunch of plants sprinkled throughout (because — surprise! — plants are good for you, too).
Upstairs we have a handful of private offices (which we call resident studios), a couple more resident desks, a full kitchen, and a light-filled meeting room — with more plants! — available to both members and non-members.
Over the years we’ve drawn members from Beacon and surrounding towns — Newburgh, Fishkill, Cold Spring, Cornwall, Garrison, Wappingers Falls, Pawling, Poughkeepsie and beyond. See our current members and our 2009 Founding Members.

Our all-inclusive “resident studios” are suitable for 1 to 5 or more people and include 24/7 access to shared lounges and open coworking spaces, kitchen, meeting rooms, equipment, and amenities.
We have a dozen studios spread across our flagship and the annex.
MEETING + EVENT SPACE
We’re more than a member shared workspace. We’re also an event and meeting space, available to rent.
Because of the dramatic features of the building, the hive of activity happening within, and our community focus, BEAHIVE is a truly unique venue for workshops, group meetings, events, and film and photo shoots.
DAY PASS / $25
Just passing through and need a place to work for a day (or two or three)? You’re welcome to buy a Day Pass and get access to communal spaces. Contact us first to make sure we can accommodate you.
If you love us as much as we know you will and decide to become a member (within a month of your Day Pass), we’ll roll the cost of the Day Pass into the membership fee.
We encourage potential members to visit, check out the space and the other members, and then choose the membership plan that works for you.
