Nestled in a stately row of turn-of-the-century mansions bordering Prospect Park, this classic dwelling incorporates the benefits of a traditional B&B without the awkward folksiness. The living quarters, from the English Garden single to the magnificent two-bedroom Grand Victorian suite, are lavished with historical relics and a private bathroom. While the building’s overwhelmingly Victorian interior may make some guests feel like they’re staying in a museum, the air conditioning, phones and cable televisions in each room should quickly bring them back to modern times. No wimpy croissants and OJ here. A proper breakfast is served on antique china each morning at 9 a.m.Pros
The park view is just as scenic as the ones in Manhattan near Central Park, without the added horns, horse smells or exorbitant room fees, providing a fantastic alternative to guests who are looking for a romantic vacation in the city.
Despite its proximity to the city’s most Fido-friendly green space, only guests of the two-legged variety are welcomed at this establishment.
