We arrived Thursday, June 16th and the weather was spectacular - low humidity and temperatures in the 70s. Our home base for the weekend was the lovely vacation rental called Brooklyn Bound. I stayed in the Parlor Suite in March with mom and my sisters so this time Sam and I had cool digs in the spacious basement apartment. Krista Kujat is the charming and most welcoming owner. She makes you feel like you are staying with family.
