The Glen Cove Mansion is on the North Shore of Long Island, known as the Gold Coast. This is Gatsby’s Long Island! The Mansion is set on 55 acres, with gorgeous facilities. Want to skip morning yoga one day and sneak in a game of tennis? Perhaps take a sauna or steam to clear your head when your main character doesn’t want to cooperate? There’s a full exercise facility including racquetball, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and perhaps best of all, ping pong! In the evening we might head up to Pub 1910 to shoot some pool, toss back a couple, and work out that nagging problem with Chapter 3. Most importantly though, you’ll be taking yourself out of your regular life to focus on your writing and surrounding yourself with other writers who are also interested in nurturing their work in progress.
