A Country Home Weekend

As I mentioned yesterday, this weekend we drove out to Orient Point which is at the end of Long Island.  We were invited to the home of a friend along with another family, who have two kids similar ages to my kids, and two other friends.  The host and hostess of this weekend have graciously allowed me to share with you some photos of their spectacular home.  
When we arrived lunch was served outdoors under this gorgeous gazebo.  The flowers in their yard and lush and simply stunning.  It felt like something out of a movie.

Lunch and dinner were an absolutely gourmet spread, all prepared by our host and hostess.  
Seriously... some of the best cooking I have ever tasted. 
We had so many laughs and got to spend a weekend just relaxing...something we rarely do.
Their backyard is gorgeous with so many different conversation areas available.
I took this photo first thing in the morning on Sunday after it had rained the night before 
(hence the cushions drying).  I also took this photo from on top of their home...

 where they have a deck that has 360 degree views of the Long Island Sound on one side 

and a farm on the other.
I fell in love with this fountain in the yard. 
They have a mahogany deck on one side of their home.
I've never seen a more beautiful deck.  If you don't know, mahogany is virtually indestructible.  
Each board is absolutely perfect...no splinters at all.

It's truly a special deck.
Here is the guest room we stayed in.  Although they had ten guests (including us), this home was large enough that each of us had our own bedroom and bathroom.  
It was so warm and inviting.  The perfect guest bedroom with everything a house-guest needs.
Sunday morning was equally amazing with the breakfast spread they had prepared.
I can't thank our friends enough for being such wonderful and gracious hosts.

DON'T FORGET TO STOP BACK TONIGHT AT 8PM EST 

FOR MY SIZZLE INTO SUMMER PARTY
