We recently stayed for three nights at Rugby Gardens; we were in Brooklyn for a family wedding. Travelled with our adult daughter. The third floor was perfect for our family. Lots of light, interesting books and objets d’art. Some delicious chocolates. The beds are super comfortable and feature high quality linens. Our two rooms shared a beautifully appointed bathroom with a heated floor (!). Lots of delicious snacks are available. Close to public transportation, great coffee and food, Prospect Park, yet quiet in the evenings. SueAnn and Michael are delightful and attentive hosts!

The house is in a very quiet tree-lined street, a few minutes walk from the bus and the Q line, which is great for tourists as it takes you straight to the museum neighbourhood. The hostess was friendly and helpful, and we benefited from her advice and suggestions. The room met our needs, the bed was comfortable. Everything was kept very clean, and sharing the bathroom proved no problem. The breakfasts were fabulous, great choice of everything we could imagine, up to hotel standards. We are glad we stayed here - great value given how expensive New York can be.

Sue and Michael live in a quiet residential neighborhood south of Prospect Park, conveniently located near bus and subway stops. Since it’s also close to my Brooklyn family I preferred to drive. Guest rooms are on the third floor where there are two full size rooms and a bathroom which looks like it was just remodeled. Due to other guest bookings, however, I had to take the small single room for two nights and transferred to the largest bedroom on my third night. In any case everything was comfy, a remote-controlled heater lets you choose your comfort level and the larger room also has A/C. “This is a no shoe house” I was told when I brought my baggage in, so I was provided with appropriate slippers. Neither I nor the other guests had any difficulties with this, but you might want to bring your own footwear. Breakfast was the highlight of the day. Sue sets out cereals, cheeses, bakery bread, milk-coffee-tea and: Sarah Beth’s jams! Restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance on Cortelyou. Since I make this trip several times a year I’m familiar with other B&Bs, one of which is closed, and another I’d never go to again; so Rugby Gardens is now one of my top 2, and it certainly beats hotel prices!

My husband and I stayed for two nights while attending an event at the Kings Theater which is in walking distance. The house is comfortable and artistically decorated. The bathroom is clean and modern. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and the house is on a quiet street of historic houses. To me this is an old-school bed-and-breakfast where you truly get a sense of your hosts and what life is like in their neighborhood which we very much enjoyed. Sue and Michael are gracious hosts and very helpful and knowledgeable about what to do and where to eat nearby. We had a European style breakfast every morning with bread or bagels, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, fruit and yogurt and cinnamon babka, Coffee for my husband and tea for me. Thanks for a lovely stay.

What a great house and welcoming hosts. We traveled from Texas to visit family in Brooklyn. Rugby Gardens was just right. We had a very enjoyable home away from home, from the swing on the front porch to the air conditioner in our bedroom. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
