Your Weekend Stay at Downton Abbey
A view even Lady Grantham would love
Okay, we may be a tad obsessed with PBS' stuffed-up-tawdry-fest of a costume drama Downton Abbey, now in its second season. And a lot of that may have to do with dreamboat Matthew Crawley, but equal parts of it are that house, our Edwardian wet dream of artistocratic excess. So imagine our excitement when America's grandest castle, the Oheka Castle Hotel & Estate, debuted a new overnight package, the Aristocratic Escape, so all us ne'er-do-well strivers can have our own Gilded Age fantasy out on Long Island -- all less than an hour from New York City.
Think tea and biscuits, a three-course dinner, champers for dessert, all while a string quarter or harpist plays, perhaps even during your massage. Details after the jump.
