After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $70, you get a one night stay ($99–$169 value, depending on season) and a gourmet breakfast for one person ($10 value) at Lefferts Manor Bed and Breakfast (up to $179 value). Rooms typically require a minimum three-night stay, but Groupon holders can enjoy any of the themed suites for a single night.
Housed in a historic 1898 Brooklyn townhouse in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District, which is 15 minutes from downtown Manhattan, the Lefferts Manor Bed and Breakfast offers guests a quaint and personable alternative to expensive city hotels. Owners Mark and Monika Osborne offer up friendly, personable service to make every guest feel at home. Guest rooms boast original woodwork and sealed fireplaces, with a nod to original Victorian design, shaker and colonial furniture, and even the occasional Moroccan lantern. Travelers who have been lured to Brooklyn by a mysterious green light might enjoy the Fitzgerald room, the largest room, which houses a bed carved from California pine and a spacious walk-in closet carved from a block of ice, while nature lovers may favor the McManus room, which has a queen-sized bed and a view of the garden. Each floor holds a restored, communal 1920s bathroom. The front parlor is also shared, as a place where guests can gather to relax or socialize over board games and milk fights.
A full sit-down breakfast is made freshly each morning and typically begins with fresh coffee, tea, and orange juice alongside fresh fruit, biscuits, and cereal. Hot offerings change daily, but can include fresh eggs and omelettes, homemade oatmeal, or french toast and pancakes. While maintaining a close tie to its historic roots, Lefferts Manor also offers modern amenities such as air-conditioning, wireless Internet, and a live video feed from Pat Boone's recording studio.
This deal is not good for the Fort Greene or Flat on Fenimore locations.
- What a pretty block and what an amazing house! I loved staying here - the owners are very friendly and I went horseback riding in Prospect Park as a result of finding the link on their very helpful website. – cootmom, TripAdvisor
- I was more than impressed with my stay at Lefferts. Both Mark and Monika made my stay a delight. Great location, near Prospect Park and near the Subway. – BedandBreakfast.com user who stayed 6/2009
