We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful and clean B&B. A family of four, we booked both rooms upstairs and therefore were the only guests, with our own floor. Sue and Michael gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home right away. They gave us lots of tips for our NYC visit and provided... More

I arrived later than I had planned and was warmly welcomed even as I disturbed my hosts sleep. Rugby Gardens is on a beautiful tree-lined street and is a very short walk from Cortelyou Street with it's restaurants and shops. Sue and Michael were gracious hosts and offered helpful suggestions on things to do and see in their beautiful neighbourhood.... More

Rugby Gardens is only 2 walking minutes away from Cortelyou station of the Q-Line, which brings you in about 25 minutes to Union Square (Manhattan) or Coney Island Beach respectively. It is a lovely (victorian style) place with lovely hosts and provides a calm, friendly and peaceful atmosphere. Sue and Michael (with Ruby, the cute little dog) are very friendly... More

I felt a little weird about just walking into somebody else's house, but our hosts really went out of their way to be friendly and welcoming. Very comfortable room, wonderful breakfasts, cute little dog, and really convenient for seeing Brooklyn and getting to the subway.

Rugby Gardens was the perfect place for us. The neighborhood is a delight for walking, for dining, and only five minutes from the subway. Michael and Sue are terrific hosts; the room comfortable and the breakfast delicious

We very much enjoyed our stay at Rugby Gardens. Conveniently located on a sycamore-lined street that reminds you of a small town in mid-America, it is easy walking distance to the subway and many fine restuarants. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our daily visits with Sue, Michael and Max. We plan to stay there again the next... More

Our daughter moved to Brooklyn last summer. We we chose Rugby Gardens because it is close to her apartment. It was nice to be able to... More
