The Country House Restaurant, c. 1710, is located on the corner of Route 25A and Main Street in historic Stony Brook. Whether it be fine dining, a special party or just a night out, the Country House will make that occasion memorable. Beautiful details abound in each room from the centerpieces to the hand painted murals and intricate details of the carved gilded fireplace. In the 1800’s it became home to the famous English actor Thomas Haddaway. Spiritual séances would be held there, with neighbor William Sidney Mount trying to conjure up past spirits, a popular practice at the time. Known to have a ghost of one of the original owners, the story is now published in the book, “Ghosts of Long Island.” The Country House is open 7 days a week serving lunch and dinner daily and was voted “Most Romantic Restaurant on Long Island,” by AOL City Guide 2007.
