An alternate suggestion with more options – Metro-North trains from Grand Central Station in NYC run about every hour or more to and from Beacon. They run from early morning to late night.
They take 60-90 minutes, depending upon whether they are express trains or local trains.
It took me about 1 hour to drive to Ellenville from Beacon when I worked in Ellenville years ago –
my opinion is that this will be shorter and more direct overall.
There are cabs at the station, but I don’t know whether they would go to Ellenville without prior notice.
There are other options for rides locally as well.

Almost nobody I know would try to navigate the bus routine from the airport in Newburgh. There are cab and limo services as well as rental cars there. It’s about a 45 minute ride.
