This private room is just waiting for business or vacation travelers. Whether its the Montclair Film Festival or NYC that captures you interest you'll be well located here.
This room has 2 twin beds and lots of sloping roof lines. It is on the 3rd floor which has a second bedroom, and a bathroom which you will share if both rooms are occupied. Sheets & towels provided.
There are AC window units during the summer.
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.
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.
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 work a full time job so don't offer breakfast other than coffee or tea. I'm happy to share points of interests are town.
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.

Betsy was a wonderful host. She was accommodating and helpful. The room was perfect for me and my mother. The bathroom was a delight.
It felt just like home to me !
Very welcoming family .. I really appreciated that Betsy stayed late up the night of my arrival :)
Very nice and private place to stay at !
Very convenient location, nice folks, good value. Room was just as pictured and described. No overnight parking on the street so if everyone is home, parking in the driveway can be a little tight. Overall, fair price, quiet house - I would stay again
Betsy and her husband were warm and friendly. They waited for my late arrival, had coffee available in the morning, and provided a cozy room exactly as promised. I'd stay here again.
I had a short but very enjoyable stay at Betsy's. Very clean, courteous, convenient, and private. I will not hesitate to stay there again next time I travel to NYC.

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.
