My neighborhood is a quiet, diverse suburb with trees and uneven sidewalks. The train station is about a 15 minute walk and gets you to NYC in 35 minutes for $12.50 round trip. There's a bus stop nearby but additional connections are needed to get to NYC. Montclair has tons of restaurants with a wide range of prices and palettes. Most are BYOB. My immediate neighborhood has a Chinese take out, pizza joint, and Caribbean take out so if you arrive starving, food is immediately available. The 15 minute walk to the main drag brings you to lots of shops, antique stores, a museum and coffee shops. There's a University at the far end of town.
You have use of the common rooms, kitchen, living room, dining room, and you can keep food in my fridge, and cook if you like. There is FIOS internet but no TV. :(
Interaction with Guests
I'm pretty laid back. I will make recommendations on things to see and do in NYC. I work full time but will be happy to chat at days end and hear about your adventures. My husband and April, the cat, are my co-hosts.
Montclair is a pretty urban/ suburban place with lots in walking distance. Nice to come home to after a day in the big city.
15 minute walk to trains, Uber friendly so get the app, buses on the corner to get to shopping and restaurants if you don't like walking.
The cat can go in and out.
Food in the fridge should be labeled.
Last one out locks the door.
Clean up after yourself.
I had a very relaxing time in the room, Betsy and her husband were very welcoming and accommodating. I would highly recommend the place and will probably return soon.
This was my second stay with Betsy and her husband. Everything was as good as the first time around. My girlfriend and I really love the house and the neighbord. The room is quiet, private, clean and the bed is very confortable. Besty is also great in recomending restaurants, theaters and places to visit in town.
Exactly as described, felt like home. Very easy drive/ ride to NYC. Suburban feeling quiet street. Betsy and her husband were super welcoming and accommodating and took very good care of us. When going to the city in the future, I will be contacting her again! Thanks Betsy!
Thank you for the warm welcome we received after a long journey from Europe... The room is what you described and you live in a quiet and nice area.
Nice to meet you, you are significant hosts.
Betsy made us feel very welcome, gave us a quick tour of the house, let us get settled in and gave us great advice regarding spots to eat and walk to. The room was very comfortable and the bath clean and roomy enough. We loved the neighborhood, the house, and the camaraderie provided by Betsy and her husband, Jay. They were easy-going hosts and great fun to converse with.
Betsy and her husband were so welcoming and accommodating. The room was absolutely perfect. Simple, cozy, and had everything we needed for our trip.
It was great staying with Betsy! The room was really comfortable, the neighborhood was great and Betsy had plenty of suggestions for things to do.

I enjoy meeting new people which is why I choose to share my home with you IF you complete your profile with picture and verification.
I have extra rooms since my children have moved out. I'm in a nice neighborhood of single family homes, safe for walking to and from the train or bus.
My life motto: do the right thing, be fair.
