We booked 2 nights last weekend at this bed and breakfast for my wife, my two teenage kids, and me. We were visiting my stepdaughters in Park Slope and this B&B was 10 blocks from where they lived. This is not a hotel experience so you have to lower your expectations. However, for a B&B, it is terrific. The place is super clean, very comfortable (even has a piano in the living room that is available for guests to play) and the breakfasts are very fresh and healthy: croissants, pastries, juices, yummy smoothies made with greek yogurt and fresh fruit, coffee, and breads. The owner, Don, is very nice and makes an effort to get to know his guests and he will chat with you during breakfast. He is a former big-money hedge fund trader who got sick and tired of the Wall Street rat race and he has been operating this B&B for years. He obviously has a real passion for the property and cares very much about his guests and shows a genuine interest in who you are and what you are doing. I don't think there is any other place in the Park Slope area that you should consider other than this terrific B&B.
