A Brooklyn Original

Rugby Gardens, hosted by Michael Hurwitz and Sue Fishkin, is an eclectic Victorian home in Brooklyn's Historic Ditmas Park. When you arrive you feel as if you've stepped back in time. The colorful palette of the house, based on a painting by Maxfield Parrish, welcomes you home.

Sue is a Fine Artist, Interior Decorator/Stylist and Feng Shui Practitioner, and has many items available for purchase. You can view her work at www.roomsaboutyou.com. Sue's original artwork and use of Feng Shui Principles can be seen and felt from the moment you enter and she'll be delighted to talk about it!

Just around the corner from the subway, you can find yourself in Manhattan in around 30 minutes! Once there, take advantage of everything New York is famous for - food, theater, museums, music, great shopping - the list goes on and on...but then you get to come home to Rugby Gardens. So, come on in and take your shoes off!

Rugby Gardens sits on a beautiful Sycamore tree lined street. You can relax on our front porch swing, or in our back yard. If you want to stay close to home in the evening, we are around the corner from great boutique restaurants and vibrant bars and coffee houses, many of which host live music.

Our third floor accommodations are very comfortable and decorated with style. We offer air conditioning as well as fans, flat screen cable TV with DVD and a small Film Library in the hall. Should you bring your laptop we have wireless high speed Internet available free of charge.

There is a lovely gathering area on the main floor where you can sit down to a lavish Continental Breakfast including a variety of artisanal baked goods and cheeses, fresh fruits and cereals.... a great way to begin your day!

The Best Part, at the End of the Day, is Returning to a Friendly, Relaxed Place —
