Where the heart comes home
Enter through the front stairway of a traditional clapboard townhouse to begin your country getaway. In the first floor living room, a pair of butter-coloured sofas invite you to recline with a thick tome, while two paisley-covered armchairs are set up for a game of chess. The dining area sits adjacent to the well-equipped open kitchen, ensuring diners get a scrumptious whiff of bacon while their country breakfast is whipped up.
On the second floor, the master bedroom exudes bed and breakfast charm, with its pair of checked armchairs set against chintz curtains. The girl’s bedroom on the third floor, with its lavender walls and feminine upholstered bed, is pure shabby chic. On the fourth floor, the boys’ bedroom is a hive of activity, with everything from guitars to surfboards to a skeleton sharing the space. On the ground floor, a large family room with an attached kitchen and adjoining guest bedroom and bath is tailor-made for sleepovers and hot cocoa. Outside, a lovely English cottage garden provides the perfect setting for a calming cup of afternoon tea or a nightcap underneath the stars.
Take a hike
There’s no danger of cabin fever setting in this lively locale. Brunch at local favorite Siggy’s, where the extensive organic and vegetarian offerings draw large crowds, then line up for the fabled pizza at Grimaldi’s, then indulge yourself at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. Fancy a Manhattan exploration? Take the scenic water route via the East River Ferry, stroll over on the Brooklyn Bridge, or get there in a flash on two nearby subway lines.
