Go Gatsby at the Glen Cove Mansion
If you're into the style of the roaring 20s, the luxury of old school mansions, and the intrigue of the Great Gatsby then you'll definitely want to head to the Glen Cove Mansion Hotel. On the gold coast of Long Island, the mansion encompasses acres of land all tended to perfection and the house itself looks like it's from the 20s or earlier yet, surprises with WiFi. What's more, fans of the Great Gatsby can geek out over the "Great Gatsby Package":
The Glen Cove Mansion Great Gatsby package also includes overnight accommodations for two; a sumptuous breakfast buffet the next morning prepared by the mansion's award-winning chefs; a $50 mansion gift certificate for use in the Garden Room Restaurant or the Manor House Pub; two hours of bicycling around Long Island's historic Gold Coast, including trail maps to the beach, area attractions and several other mansions. Also included are two hours of tennis rentals and court time at the estate (after all, Gatsby loved tennis), a welcome amenity, and the pièce de résistance -- a miniature of Jay Gatsby's famed roadster! The Great Gatsby package is $375 per couple per night. Guests wishing to extend their stay an additional night can do so for half price until December 30, 2006.
Although there are countless activities you can busy yourself with on the grounds like tennis, badminton, soccer, volleyball, bowling, the spa and more the incentive we'd really like is a glamorous party on Saturday night a la Jay Gatsby style but, unfortunately this doesn't appear to be included. Just a lot of wedddings.
